Owner purchased this Cottage in 1977
Why Owner chose Mount Shasta
The garden loft is a great get-a-way from the hustle and bustle of one's home. Guests have called our garden loft serene with a special feeling of calmness. One is in the forest yet only a short hike to the downtown area.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our visitors will enjoy the privacy and solitude as well as the close proximity to town, skiing, and many other outdoor activities that Mt. Shasta is known for. Park in the carport that is steps from the front door of the loft. Enjoy the 1 acre of flowers during the Spring, Summer and Fall. How about a two person shower with two shower heads!! Total relaxation awaits you here.

Amazing place with an even better view!
This garage loft is just perfect for 4 people. We stayed there with our child and really enjoyed the short drive to the mountain, the friendliness of the owner, and the charming grounds. The aminities and attention to detail are just superb. We slept great, enjoyed the games provided, watched movies at night, and were able to relax on our vacation. Wonderful owners!
The attention to detail and craftsmanship of the garden loft are wonderful. The gardens are a work of art and labor of love. Private and quiet, just far enough out of town yet close to everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
A perfect spot for a mountain visit
My husband and I recently spent 2 relaxing nights at the Garden Loft. Our accommodations couldn't have been any nicer. Clean, bright and tastefully decorated with room to spare. So much better than any hotel room. John and Sandy are friendly hosts and were very helpful with ideas on places to visit during our stay...we especially liked that the hosts had placed binders in the apartment with loads of information on everything you would want to know about the area....which we definitely took advantage of. We felt like we were invited guests! The location of the apt was nestled in a wooded area overlooking Mt.Shasta and John's beautiful gardens...we do wish we had more time to spend there.
For anyone looking for a great accommodations, I would highly
recommend "The Garden Loft". John and Sandy were so thoughtful that they left a bottle of wine in the refrigerator to help us celebrate our anniversary!
A great get away in the mountains!
We had a wonderful stay at the garden loft. It was very comfortable for my husband, our two school aged children, and me. We used it as our base as we explored the area: lakes, hiking, waterfalls, snow up on Mt. Shasta in June!, and the headlands of the Sacramento River. John is a very warm and friendly man, and he gave us excellent suggestions for activities. We highly recommend staying here for the comfort level and the easy access to so many beautiful places in the area.
Beautiful and comfy loft, lovely gardens, peaceful location, superb hosts
We were so pleased with our choice for 2 nights in Mt. Shasta. John and Sandy are probably the best hosts I've ever encountered in decades of travel. The love put into their extensive gardens shines through with blooms everywhere. Everything you need for a comfortable stay, and a very quiet location backing onto woods abundant with birds and nature all around, plus views of Mt. Shasta. THANK YOU!! P.S. The bulbs made it home ;-) THANKS>>>>>
Wanted to stay forever!
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful place. The loft was spacious, light-filled, beautifully decorated, immaculate, and the kitchen was well-appointed. The gardens were gorgeous (and very inspiring, as my husband and I are newly retired and are starting to develop our own gardens). The owners were friendly and available, but not at all intrusive. I hope to be able to come back often!
Sandy and I propagate Shasta Lilies and we probably have the largest concentration (no. per acre) of Shasta Lilies in California and Oregon. When they bloom the fragrance rivals any flower from Hawaii. One bloom in a room will permeate an entire home.
