About the property

Located in the community of Lakehead, California,

on the Sacramento River arm of Shasta Lake. This home is generally available from just before Memorial Day to just after Labor Day. A minimum of a full-week rental may be arranged during other times of the year.

Nestled among pines and oaks, this Shasta Lake vacation home is best suited for smaller parties (there are beds for eight persons). Fully furnished, including linens and kitchen utensils, it also includes satellite TV, a DVD player, wireless internet, and use of the washer and dryer. Bring your own movies, or rent them at the nearby market. The home has two large bedrooms (each with a queen-size bed), two baths, and a large L-shaped living room. In a corner of the living room is a trundle bed that can be made up as two twin beds. In addition, we can supply two twin rollaway beds to be located wherever you choose. The Retreat is air conditioned for your summer comfort.

The house is within easy walking distance of the lake's shoreline. Nearby there is a public boat launch ramp. Also available there are numerous lake services/rentals, including termporary dock rentals.

There is plenty of room on the adjacent lot for RV and boat trailer parking.

About Randall McNames

Now retired, I enjoy the activity of the lake by day and the serenity of the lake in the evenings. The neighbors and merchants of this small resort community have a strong bond that endures during our long winter, and blossoms during the summer.

Randall McNames purchased this house in 2002

Why Randall McNames chose Shasta Lake

The village of Lakehead is one of the few locations that offers such convenient access to the lake. And there are several small businesses that provide for common needs so you don't have to drive into Redding for routine suppllies. This property is best suited for smaller groups.

What makes this house unique

This vacation home is relatively private, located on a wooded 1/2 acre. Besides being a short walk to the water, there is ample chance to experience wild life just outside the door. It is often the case on many afternoons to see deer snacking on the landscaping. And the birds provide their entertainment as well. The neighborhood is well suited for an evening walk with the dog. Please remember there is a leash law in Shasta County.

We had an amazing time!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay if visiting Shasta. The house was clean and spacious with everything you need. We had 2 adults and 6 children and had plenty of room. Wifi, dish tv, AC, and a full lake what else could you ask for? Boat ramps 5 min away and lake 5 min walk. Thank you Randall for sharing your home with us..

The Bilslands and friends!

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We will never camp again. Staying at Randall's home was the best decision we've made when it comes to vacations. It is close enough to the water that you can walk. It was very clean which is very important to us. We will be back.

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for 2 weeks. Lakehead is close to many sightseeing opportunities-Shasta Dam, Shasta Caverns, Castle Crags State Park and it is close enough to Redding for any shopping needs. The home itself is very well laid out, spacious and very clean. The deck is private and the neighborhood is very quiet. The home is well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
