Property description

Location, charm and comfort...the 'A' Street Retreat has it all! Formerly operated as a Bed & Breakfast inn (the "Mount Shasta House"), this home has 6 bedrooms and 3 baths and can sleep up to 13 people. It is ideal for families as it is just 1 1/2 blocks from the adorable, historic downtown Mt. Shasta. Teens and older kids can walk to the movies, to basketball courts at the local school, and to parks. Adults will love the restaurants and shopping just around the corner while enjoying the peaceful residential neighborhood. Living room has ample seating, big screen TV with cable, Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon, high speed internet access and cozy wood stove with generous supply of wood for winter months. Dining area table can expand to seat 14 (10 without expansion) and breakfast room seats another 6. Spacious and charming kitchen with new range, granite countertops and dishwasher is very thoroughly supplied for all of your cooking and baking needs. Bedroom #1 downstairs is off the living room and contains a second TV with cable and DVD player so the kids and adults can be entertained separately. A lovely day-bed trundle (sleeps 2) provides extra seating and 'hanging out' space and the warm yellow walls, green quilts and sunny windows make the space very welcoming. Bedroom #1 shares a Jack and Jill bath with bedroom #2. Bedroom #2 is a teen girl's dream with white day-bed trundle (sleeps 2), floral quilts, white dresser, whimsical wall art, and its own 'Harry Potter Cupboard' under the stairs (complete with cozy mattress and reading lights for some private time!). Bedroom #3 is adjacent to the second downstairs bathroom and contains an adorable trundle bunkbed (sleeps 3). The perfect place for your little rascals, this room is decorated with beautiful, cozy comforters and silly monkey wall art. Upstairs, bedroom #4 has two lovely maple twin beds with very high quality mattresses and bedding. Sweet reading lights above each bed, built in cabinets and antique postcards of the Mt. Shasta area make this room a wonderful retreat. Bedroom #5 upstairs is decorated in soothing tones of sage and cream and has a beautiful iron frame queen bed with a very high quality mattress and bedding. Built in cabinets, a spacious closet and a comfortable chair will assure that you have room to move and to relax. The largest room upstairs is Bedroom #6. With a peek-a-boo view of Mt. Shasta, this comfortable room includes another beautiful iron bed frame (of course with high quality mattress and bedding), handmade bedside tables, a cozy reading chair and lamp and built-in dresser. The upstairs bathroom is a large, sunny room with a claw foot tub that you will want to soak in for hours. You will find a fully stocked laundry room with large capacity washer and dryer off of the kitchen and up to 7 off-street parking spaces (depending on snow levels!) in the rear of the property. Back deck with view of the Eddy mountain range. The house is literally less than 2 minutes from some of the best amenities the town of Mt. Shasta has to offer. Walk to the Berryvale Market for fresh organic groceries and delicious prepared foods or stop at the Goat Tavern (picked by Sunset Magazine as one of the Best of the West) for an amazing burger, sweet potato fries and a beer. Want the BEST eggs benedict north of San Francisco followed by a world class cinnamon roll? Then walk three short blocks to the Mt. Shasta Pastry Company for breakfast. The 'A' Street Retreat has the benefit of being in the heart of the downtown area with the quiet, relaxing feel of a residential neighborhood. We are sure that you will love the location, decor, and amenities and will want to return year after year! New for 2015: Backyard and deck completely renovated! Large, lovely space for outdoor meals and play. Propane fire pit and night lighting for beautiful evenings under the stars. Please note that we do not allow pets of any kind.

Car: Recommended

Mt. Shasta is truly a '4 Season Wonderland'. In the Spring, Summer and Fall you will find hiking, fishing, mountain climbing, swimming, boating and at least one local festival each month. In the Winter, downhill, nordic and back-country skiing as well as ice-skating will keep everyone busy. Historic Downtown Mt. Shasta is full of charming shops and restaurants...all within walking distance of our vacation rental. Take a day trip to beautiful Medicine Lake or catch a play in Ashland Oregon (just over an hour away!). You can pick your own Lavender at the Mt. Shasta Lavender farm (and enjoy the stunning views while you sip complimentary lavender lemonade) or schedule a massage or skin treatment at one of the many local day spas. If you are a crafter, don't miss Weston's. This little vintage house is packed with craft supplies and ideas and, if you happen to be in town on a Saturday, you might even want to take one of the needlework classes on a drop in basis. Mt. Shasta offers something for everyone...and in a setting much more peaceful and crowd free than Lake Tahoe.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We have lived and worked in the North Bay Area (Sonoma County) for most of our lives. Along with our teenage son and daughter, we love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, skiing, fishing and kayaking. We spend as much time as possible in Mt. Shasta and are looking forward to retiring there eventually.

Why Mount Shasta, CA, USA:
We have spent a significant amount of time in Mt. Shasta every year for over a decade and have always dreamed of owning a home here. After renting other homes in the area for so many years, we know exactly what it takes to make a vacation rental feel like home and we have worked hard to set up the 'A' Street Retreat with this in mind. We love the vintage style of the house (1920s) and have furnished it with both the historic period and modern comfort in mind. This house is not just a generic vacation rental...it is our home on the mountain and it has been decorated and supplied with love and attention.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The combination of historic charm, central location, quiet neighborhood and fact that it is big enough to hold our extended family made the 'A' Street Retreat the perfect spot for us. As the only house on the street zoned for use as a vacation rental (a historic holdover from its early days as a rooming house), guests have the unique benefit of 'living' in a peaceful residential area with the best access to what the town has to offer.
