My family had a wonderful time at the House by the Creek. My husband and I stayed there with our son and one of my son's friends, both teenagers. The cabin is tucked away in the woods making it feel very private. We visited during the fall, so we really enjoyed all of the changing colors and falling leaves. Everything was very clean, and comfortable, making us feel right at home. The boys enjoyed playing the board games, tether ball, darts, basketball, panning for gold, and etc. They were never bored and always had some new game or adventure that they would come up with. We also enjoyed the outdoor kitchen for grilling up dinner, or just eating breakfast on the back porch. The fire pit was very nice, and there were even sticks available to toast up marshmallows! The creek was also so beautiful with the fall colors. All in all, this place is fantastic and we would stay there again. There were a lot of things to do inside and around the cabin for kids, teens and adults, and ample sightseeing nearby. The only thing that was missing was the hammock, but I am guessing it was put away for the fall and winter months.

House by the creek

  • 5 of 5

Brand new, very accommodating and comfortable. Huge picture window captures a beautiful view of the mountains, while the outdoor picnic area captures the sounds of the creek. Home is filled with thoughtful extras, like an additional stove and grill in the outdoor picnic area, and equipment to pan for gold. The kitchen is equipped with ample pots, pans, dishes, silverware and cooking utensils, and even a breakfast bar which can substitute for a buffet. The comfortable, spacious living/dining area was a perfect place for our large family to visit together. The laundry room off the kitchen added to the efficiency of the home.

A week of pure enjoyment, relaxation, and bonding

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with two other couples stayed at this beautiful house on the most amazing creek.

(not sure why they call it a creek, its more like a small river)

The six of us have been friends for a long time and have gone many places together....But never anyplace as special as this. The beauty, the fresh air, the sounds, and the privacy was more than we could have wished for. We had so much fun relaxing by the creek and hanging out on the BBQ porch laughing and catching up, that no one wanted to leave to make the 10 min. drive for more refreshments. The house had everything else we needed and much more. We can not wait to go back.

Such as:

Dog Creek Bridge

Across Dog Creek at its junction with the Sacramento River in the Sacramento River Canyon.

Dog Creek Bridge is said to be one of the most artistic and spectacular structures ever built in California. Some of its artistic features are four benches built into the roadway bed of the bridge as a place for weary travelers to rest and enjoy the 360-degree backdrop.

Scenes from the bridge are breathtaking. Clearly visible from the bridge are the Sacramento River, Dog Creek, the railroad tracks and the surrounding hills. The bridge was designated a California Historical Landmark on May 29, 1984. It is public property under the protection of the Forest Service.

Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens

Enjoy woodland plants, bold uses of annual color, a crevice rock garden and native plant areas in their natural setting nestled along the Sacramento River

Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms

Ten acres of blooming lavender with stunning views of Mt. Shasta and Shasta Valley. Enjoy Lavender Lemonade. Quality products available at the farm and online.

McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park

President Theodore Roosevelt once called Burney Falls the eight wonder of the world. This spectacular cascading waterfall is within McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State.

McCloud Falls

There are actually three levels to McCloud Falls: lower, middle and upper, each offering different views. Hiking to each of the falls is relatively easy.

Or visit a local winery...

Alpen Cellars

Award winning winery and vineyards located in a scenic mountain valley. Tours, tastings & retail sales. Picnic facilities.

It is 30 min. north of Redding so for those of you who want to get away from the valley heat..... Come up with your friends or families and enjoy a few cooler days in the forest.

Easy FWY access to head North to the Upper Sacramento River, Historical Dunsmuir, Castle Crags, Railroad Park (restaurant & resort), & Mt. Shasta. All within 45 min.from house.

If you want to venture further travel to McCloud,

The Klamath, Eel & Fall Rivers, Burney Falls, and many other lakes & creeks.

Head South to Redding for shopping, dining, cassinos, Water slides, and much more like 'The amazing Calatrava 'Sundial' Bridge'

Autumn visitors will experience the magnificent array of colors with warm afternoons and cool evenings.
