About Maria Ribera
This property is near and dear to our hearts as we custom-designed and built it for our family. We are a family of mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners, swimmers, kayakers, skiers and snow boarders. After almost 10 years and wonderful family memories of children growing up, we have moved from the area to pursue various career options for us and schools for our children. Though we have only gone as far as Monterey and still come 'home' when we can, we are happy to share our home with you in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Maria Ribera purchased this House in 2004
Why Maria Ribera chose Mount Shasta
Being so close to town but having such spectacular views and ultimate privacy are perhaps the best selling points of this location. The home itself is spacious and comfortable, but feels like a 'home' and not like a hotel or museum. Lots of original art adorns the walls and the style of furnishings go together in a way that makes you feel welcome.
What makes this House unique
The home is situated on the property to make the most of the many views. The southern and western exposures on the back deck make it the place to enjoy stunning sunsets. The many interior windows in the living room also let you watch life unfold across the mountains. For those that want to get away from it all and simply unplug, you can park the car and go everywhere on foot from shopping to great hiking. Pack a backpack for the day and head out on an adventure!

Overall very nice, but....
Overall, our stay was very enjoyable. We liked the nice bedrooms, kitchen and living area as well as the hot tub. The setting is very private. A big disappointment was the missing wood burning stove which was one of the amenities listed in the VRBO online description. My wife is a cozy fire aficionado so this was a sort of a big deal for us--especially with snow and cold weather surroundings this time of year. We didn't find out about this until we happened to ask about firewood for the stove just before our arrival. On the plus side, caretaker Nate, was very helpful and pleasant to deal with.
Be auti.ful family weekend!
We 70 year olds, our 40 year old son and daughter in law, and two teenage girls and an 8 year old boy had a great family time together! Nate, the caretaker was a very helpful and kind host. Hope we didn't wear the hot tub out!
The best house to stay in Mt. Shasta!
The house was cute and clean.
Beautiful mountain view with pool and jacuzzi.
The caretaker was super nice,, we will miss him on our next trip!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope you will visit again in the future.
A Wonderful place!
This house is large, very clean, well-layed out. It's very quiet and private. It's well-located, as well. It's near downtown and not far from Lake Siskyou. The outdoor pool was unheated, but the temp was perfect for us. And if you're cold, jump into the clean hot tub. Nathan, the caretaker, is very friendly and helpful. Great kitchen! It would be perfect for a ski vacation or summer break. The skiing is inexpensive and the lines are not long. Check out Stewart Mineral Springs, 25-20 miles North in Weed. Get the sauna, hot mineral bath, a cool dip in the mineral water creek and splurge on a Massage. Nathan, also, does massage, and he's very experienced in a number of techniques. There is so much to do in and from Mt Shasta. The trout farm is famous and it has an amazing museum, all for $1. Riding Mt bikes around Lake Siskyou is 5-7 mile ride that gets you ready for a jump into the lake.
Awesome property super nice property manager great experience
Fresh eggs from chickens daily a Woodfire oven , pool hottub giant yard private w views of Shasta and Smith Mtns really peaceful and nice and the helper guy Nathan was super friendly and nice even our kid starting calling him his best friend lol was great house and people and experience
Mediocre at best... Caretaker is great.
We ran out of hot water three different days... and the water was out from evening until morning. Meaning no warm showers after skiing, etc. The heat was out one of those nights and was out until late morning. Ran out of fuel. The linens were shabby, beds uncomfortable. The only good thing about the house is the caretaker, who was very helpful through it all and kept the road clear of snow etc.
I am so very sorry that these things happened during your stay. A big winter this year has certainly given the community many challenges of mountain living, including scheduled fuel deliveries being behind due to the impassable roads and adverse conditions due to so much snow. When we put our diesel hydronic heating system in the house, it was intended to be an efficient means to heat and provide hot water. We also set up regularly schedule fuel deliveries to make sure that there was always diesel fuel around, particularly in the winter when more is used due to the need to heat the house as well as the hot water. Unfortunately, when something goes wrong, like running low on fuel, they system falters and there is neither heat nor hot water--- In the 12 years that we've had this home, this is only the 2nd winter in which fuel deliveries were so behind due to extreme weather that fuel levels were compromised, and I am so sorry that your visit coincided with this "perfect storm." Please accept a refund from us for the days of your stay impacted by this situation--- it is our hope that this will attempt to reflect our apologies appropriately.
We will also look into your other comments as this has not been feedback received from any other guests, and we appreciate your sharing your thoughts on your experience so we can continue to improve what we have to offer.
