About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This beautifully remodeled fishing cottage faces Shasta Lake from a ridge below Hirz Mountain. Bring the boat; our pull-thru makes it easy. The Hirz Bay launch is 4.9 miles down the road and gets you in the water at one of the prettiest arms on Shasta Lake. At night come back to a roomy deck, a barbeque, and star filled nights.

Perfect for romantic getaways or just a relaxing time away.

About Russ Christoff

My wife Genie and I reside in Antioch, California where we teach high school.

Russ Christoff purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Russ Christoff chose Shasta Lake

When Genie and I produced our Public Television Series, we came upon this beautiful and unspoiled area of Shasta Lake. We fell in love with the view, bought the Treehouse, and then purchased Raven's Nest Cottage and had a blast restoring it.

What makes this bungalow unique

The lovely views of the mountains and lake in this forest setting are a terrific place to make memories.


Car: necessary

World class boating and fishing on Shasta Lake. Snow skiing in McCloud.

We keep coming back

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a fourth “annual” visit to the Raven’s Nest with our two young boys and continue to find new and wonderful things to do and enjoy. The cabin is beautifully appointed with all the modern comforts you need to relax without feeling isolated. Fishing off a river bank is just a few minutes drive away and skiing is a bit further, and the boys enjoy exploring the woods near the cabin until they break for ping pong. More than anything, Russ and Genie have been terrific hosts, always responsive and going the extra mile to help with requests before or during our visit.

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at the Raven's Nest. It is a welcome get away. Always well furnished and very clean. The ping pong table is great for the kids and adults alike. The fully equipped kitchen is ready for any meal. The lake is close by. We love staying here.

Beautiful & big fun

  • 5 of 5

Raven's nest was a grand vacation the privacy was so relaxing, the front room was a treat for our young children & teenagers. The furnishings were lovely. The beds were homey comfy. This kitchen was FULLY equipped for any meal ( we adored the waffle maker). We spent our days on the lake but really enjoyed coming back to home base (Raven's nest) & our late evenings in this home gave us a heart full of terrific memories. Thank you.
