This is the stuff dreams are made of. Spend a weekend in the California countryside. Your home base will be the oldest barn in Shasta County. Beautifully renovated into a comfortable guest house furnished with antiques and heirlooms, the Barn House at Stonewall Ranch is a true country retreat.
Up to four people and their well-behaved pets may visit from two nights to 10 days. (If you'd like to stay longer, please contact us.)
Just 17 miles from Redding, California, this is the ideal place to truly "get away from it all." Set in a peaceful mountain meadow by a year-round boulder-lined stream on a paved mountain road that winds through woodland virtually untouched by the developer's hand, the Barn House is a place like no other.

Beautifully furnished with heirlooms, antiques and works by local artists and craftspeople, the Barn House features Tennessee red-oak hardwood floors and knotty pine paneling throughout on walls and cathedral ceilings.
Features: An open floor-plan; natural-stone fireplace built with stones from the ranch; well-equipped kitchen with full-size appliances; family-size dining table and dining alcove; massive decks that run the length of the building overlook a meadow and the boulder-lined creek that runs along the length of the property.
The Barn House is a romantic hideaway for couples. Let the sounds of the gentle brook just outside the door lull you to sleep. The bedroom features an antique four-poster double bed, an heirloom chest, 19th century armoire and dresser, and a contemporary wing-back recliner
The great room with its cathedral ceilings and knotty pine interior is as comfortable as it is beautiful. Antique chairs, deep old-fashioned rockers, and a warm natural-stone fireplace with pellet insert create an inviting home. Relax with a good book by the fire, listen to music and enjoy a glass of wine. The futon couch converts to a full-size bed.
From the massive decks, kick back and enjoy being surrounded by nature. Stonewall Ranch is home to a variety of wildlife--the California black bear, wild turkey, the rare ringtail cat, the endangered martin/fisher, and herds of deer freely roam the mountain. Our guests are more likely to see deer pass by on their way to the creek, than cars on the quiet country lane that leads to the property.
A paradise for hikers and mountain bicyclists, the property abuts the backside of Whiskeytown NRA, a veritable wilderness. Backpacking, mountain biking, hiking, nature walks and quiet meditation by the year-round stream are all part of the quiet life here at Stonewall Ranch.
Ample parking is available for large vehicles, including RVs (no hookups).
Well-behaved dogs are welcome at the Barn House at $10 per dog per night. To ensure that pets continue to be welcomed, please make sure that they do not get onto the furniture, and do not leave them alone while you are away from the Barn House. We have a pet-friendly cupboard filled with all the little extras that our pet-owning friends might need--everything from old afghans and blankets to make a cozy bed for Fido, to towels to use after a visit to the nearby creek.
The Barn House at Stonewall Ranch is just 20 minutes from Redding, but it feels like a world away. In some ways it is. There are no gas stations, supermarkets or convenience stores once you leave Redding. There is a small general store in Igo that is open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. for essentials, as well as milk, bread, beer and cigarettes. There are no hard-liquor sales in Igo. The Igo Store also serves breakfast on Sunday morning, and during the week hamburgers and deli sandwiches are available.
The Barn House at Stonewall Ranch is a quiet, restful vacation home for people who truly want to get away from it all and enjoy time in the woods. The Barn House has cable TV, Excede broadband satellite internet connectivity, and internet-based telephone service.
Open flames are not allowed anywhere on the property. Flameless candles and lanterns are available for your use.
Smoking is not permitted inside the Barn House. Smoking is allowed on the exterior decks away from open windows and doors. E-cigarettes and vapes may be used inside the Barn House, so long as they do not emit a strong odor.
The Barn House is air conditioned and has an overhead fan in the great room for warm weather, and a propane heating stove, as well as a pellet insert for the fireplace for chilly temperatures.
