4-BED/3-BATH, POOL, GREAT MOUNTAIN & LAKE VIEWS
Family-built home provides wonderful vacation memories. Husband/Wife proprietors raised in northern California who raised their family here and would love to share it. The rest, is an ancient Chinese secret :)
Lonnie purchased this House in 1967
Why Lonnie chose Lakehead
A beautiful family vacation house. Perfect as a family get-a-way or couples retreat. Secluded in the mountains among tall pines, sitting on one of California's largest reservoir lakes, that include cool caverns (after a patio-boat ride across the lake and a short bus ride!), sun-set cruise dinners done by a local business, swimming, fishing, hiking, Shasta Dam, many, many places to explore, yet not too far from the the city of Redding.
What makes this House unique

Beautiful lake front home
We definitely enjoyed our stay. Very clean, tastefully decorated, beautiful lake view, pool and hot tub a plus. Kitchen has everything you need. Definitely a five star vacation rental.
Wonderful spot for family vacation
The house is totally perfect for a family vacation. Has plenty of space, comfortable beds, pool is great and we all loved it. This is our second time renting this house for our family vacation and we will definitely be back again!
Home is beautiful in a great location! Well stocked with comfy beds. House recently remodeled which is nice. The only disappointment was the floors had not been cleaned at all and the pool cleaner didn't work.
Just an FYI - at the property we had 0 cell reception (Verizon and ATT) and the internet is unreliable.
Family vacation for 8 adults (4 couples) and 6 kids.
First impressions - fenced yard, LARGE driveway for parking multiple cars, boat and trailer, nice grass area. When you walk in it is CLEAN!!! Nice open spaces for gathering during meals and after dinner to play games.
Master bedroom is large with great floor space for inflatable mattresses (twin toddlers). The bathroom has a beyond large shower space so we were able to shower all the kids at the same time. Seriously. There is another bedroom across the hall with its own bathroom as well. It had a queen size bed and space for a twin inflatable. Kitchen is wide open for multiple people to prep meals. There is a table in the kitchen with seating for 6 and another table in the dining room with seating for 6.
The living room is large and spacious but the seating there is limited. There is a couch for 3, a love seat for 2, and a lounger chair. It would have been nice to have more seating in that room. It also has the only TV (other than the master). Because the kitchen, dining areas, and living room are all open to each other it tends to get very noisy. There is a really large room downstairs that would be perfect for a TV so that we could send the kids down there to watch a movie while the adults are upstairs playing cards. The downstairs would have been a great place for the adults to gather (eliminating the TV noise) as an option, but there isn't really a setup for adults to sit around a table. The downstairs has a double bed bunk that was perfect for us. This room is HUGE with a sliding door access to the lower patio. This would be a perfect spot to designate as a play area for kids or adults but there isn't seating or a table for that purpose. There are two more private bedrooms downstairs. They do not have enough floor space for an inflatable mattress but it wasn't needed because of the bunk beds right outside their door. There is another full bath on this level and a very large washer/dryer set up. Much needed when there are 14 people.
The pool was a wonderful addition. After a day on the lake we made use of the pool everyday. The upstairs patio and downstairs patio are great gathering spots. Sadly, we were there during the Carr Fire and by evening the air quality made hanging out in these areas difficult after the sun went down.
Wifi is frustrating at best. I don't know if the fires had anything to do with service.
We are planning to return in 2019
Beautiful home, we loved our stay!
House was on the lake, great backyard for our dogs. Newly remodeled, awesome house overall.
Exceptional views, with privacy and character
Plenty of room for 6 adults and 8 children for a week. One of the best homes on the lake. Our stay has convinced us the Lake House is superior to houseboating.
Located a short drive north of the city of Redding, you'll find yourself in the Shasta-Trinity National Forrest with it's towering pines and seclusion. Our home is located in Lakehead CA on the north side of Shasta Lake. Located at the end of a road it sits on a acre lot overlooking Shasta Lake. You can explore this very large lake on your boat & be at Shasta Dam within 20 minutes. You can also be there by car within 25 minutes. You can even take a tour! The site really is magnificent! Shasta Lake is California's largest lake...it is actually a reservoir in which water is released from the Dam everyday. Although the water level at Shasta Lake decreases slowly over the summer, it's so large, you can still enjoy swimming, boating, water skiing, parasail , dive, fish. Our home sits on the edge of a cove on Shasta Lake. When lake level is approximately 17ft from crest, most watercraft will have clearance under the old bridge that "gates" the cove to the "back yard" of the house. No private dock allowed by law on Shasta Lake.. Lakehead does have marinas that have moors and boat launches, if that is what you prefer. Lakehead is situated roughly between Mt. Shasta, with it's mystic little shops & great dinning to it's spectacular winter snow skiing, and Redding with it's eclectic choices of food, entertainment and shopping. Lakehead is a great place to meet in the middle, for get-togethers or that fun camping in-the-forest feeling, but doing it a house with many amenities people love with plenty of small local eateries. Or create a cooking masterpiece at the house. Kitchen is stock with all cooking accoutrement - just bring food. Two great-rooms, four bedrooms - two upstairs, two down. Upstairs bedrooms have king beds with bathrooms attached. Downstairs bedrooms have queen beds. A built-in queen bunkbed sits just outside the bedrooms as well. Additional sitting/play area (it's a bit quiter on lower level). Full bathroom with shower & laundry are also on lower level - has it's own exits with spectacular views. Upstairs bathrooms: a tub/shower combo in one, large shower in the other. We also have a private pool, jacuzzi and gameroom in the garage. Home sits on large lot with plenty of parking.
The rate is $4000 a week
$500 deposit, which includes a $200 non-refundable ceaning deposit. The remainder will be refunded if no damage occurs.
