This is our "home away from home" and is a non-smoking vacation spot. Originally purchased by Dick and Carol Crabill (my in-laws), we loved spending quality family time here while our kids were growing up. You can fish or golf nearby, or ski/snowboard less than an hour away from this beautiful spot in the country. If you are looking for comfort and charm in a peaceful, serene setting, you'll find it in this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a large Great Room that sleeps up to 12 people. Beautiful views of the countryside can be seen from every room in the house. Beds include one Cal King, one Queen, and 2 Twin beds in the bedrooms. One full size leather hide-a-bed is in the living room with an additional leather couch complete with 2 recliner chairs on each end of the couch. A Queen sleeper sofa and full-size hide-a-bed are in the Great Room. Internet access is available throughout the home via a Wifi network. A computer and printer are set up in the Great Room alongside a beautiful baby grand piano. A full kitchen is complete with a dishwasher and everything you need (cookware, dishes, silverware, and a supply of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, flour, sugar, seasonings and a few extras). There is an indoor grill in the kitchen or you can BBQ outside on the patio. A large selection of videos and DVDs are available for all ages to view on the large HDTV in the living room or 3 other TVs located throughout the home. The Great Room has an XBox and Nintendo 64 with a selection of games for kids. We also have a variety of board and card games in the Great Room, as well as a ping pong table in the garage. Two sets of golf clubs are available to use at the nearby golf course. Inside laundry room has a large capacity washer and dryer. Firewood is provided for the wood burning stove in the living room. A patio table with chairs plus a 2-seated glider are located on the back deck overlooking the expansive countryside and breathtaking river view. (However, the patio table and chairs are put away during the winter.) Restaurants and groceries are within a 10 minute drive. This is a great 'getaway' retreat on 3 acres, nestled away from the main road down a country lane, and plenty of parking is provided on the long driveway. The house is close to an 18-hole golf course in Fall River Mills and plenty of fishing nearby in the summer. Mt. Shasta is a 45-minute drive away for winter skiing and snowboarding. This is strictly a non-smoking rental and is the perfect vacation home any time of the year!

About Jayne Crabill Peddy
I currently live in the Gold Country of northern CA, and this home is my family's favorite vacation spot. My in-laws purchased this home, and although they are no longer with us, we have special memories here and love to return to this place as often as possible.
Jayne Crabill Peddy purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1980
Why Jayne Crabill Peddy chose McArthur
This property is part of our family history and is very special to us.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The beautiful views surrounding the home are amazing and are best seen in person as I have been told by previous renters that the photos on this site don't do it justice. It is the perfect place for relaxation and rejuvenation.

We loved the place and location. Our 1 small issue was there was no TV service. Maybe this was mentioned on the VRBO web-sight and I just missed it.
I enjoyed having you and your friends as my guests. Yes, "no cable TV" is mentioned on both my listing and in the information I send to all of my renters via email. I'm sorry you missed this. (We do provide a wide variety of movies and some TV series to watch at the house, or guests can download ahead of time and bring with them.) Thanks again for staying. Jayne
I rented this house for my daughter and her friends for a bachelorette weekend. It was a great spot! Very clean and well appointed with beautiful views! I would highly recommend for any group coming into the Fall River Valley to recreate or just relax.
Thank you, Kelly! Your daughter and friends were wonderful guests! It was a pleasure to have them in my house. So glad they enjoyed their stay. Blessings to your daughter on her wedding and marriage. :) Jayne
This is a spacious and well-equipped home with a lovely view. The owner goes out of her way to be accommodating. Would highly recommend when you're visiting the Fall River Valley.
Thank you very much! I appreciate your kind words. :) Jayne
Wonderful, cozy home - exactly as depicted in photos and descriptions
We enjoyed our stay in the Crabill Country Cottage immensely. We were greeted by the property manager, Kelly, shortly after arriving. Jayne, the owner, had arranged for a lovely fruit bowl, which we all enjoyed sampling - particularly our 13 year old, who loved the kiwis.
This home was cozy and delightful, with plenty of room for all of us and the granddaughter and family who joined us for fun and games one evening. We all loved sitting on the deck, especially in the early morning and evening. The view is spectacular, as advertised!! We watched deer in the fields, and counted many new birds for our birding list, including an amazing Golden eagle that swept the fields below us morning and evening, stopping to sit on his high-line roost for us to view him through the telescope.
Our two teenage grandsons enjoyed the collection of movies and separate viewing area, so they could enjoy their time without grown-ups. As for us, the peace and quiet on the deck and being totally unplugged for our stay was the best respite we could imagine. We fished the Fall River and Hat Creek with guides from Clearwater Lodge, we experienced Burney Falls, which is breathtaking, and we spent an afternoon driving to Mt. Shasta for dinner and another day driving to the summit of Mt. Lassen for exploring and a picnic.
With our granddaughter and her family residing nearby in Burney, we will definitely be looking forward to our next visit to Crabill Lane. Thank you so much, Jayne and Kelly for making our stay such a wonderful experience.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We thoroughly enjoyed having you as guests and look forward to your return! I am glad you enjoyed the fruit basket. I happened to be up at the house right before your arrival and was able to put that together for you. Wish I could be up there more often and do that for everyone. :) Jayne
One of the Best !
This is a great property. My family and friends often rent vacation properties and this is one of the best we have stayed at. The house has everything that you could need or want and it is immaculately clean. Plenty of room for you and your friends or family. Close to all the activities in the valley. The patio and yard are a great bonus and the views are spectacular. The view from the master bedroom is especially wonderful. Working with the owner and manager was easy and very pleasant. I would definitely stay here again. In fact I am looking forward to our next visit.
Thanks, Christie! It was great having you and your friends as guests in our home. Hope you will be able to return again soon. :) Jayne
So comfortable, and the views!!!
This home provides terrific views 24/7, complete comfort, and a floor plan that serves an extended family stay very well. There are entertainment resources for all ages, including DVD's, music, games, and a baby grand!
The kitchen is equipped for any meal you want to prepare, with plenty of storage for whatever food you bring. I can't wait to return in warmer weather to enjoy the patio.
The owner provides extensive information about the house and the area. She is quick to respond to emails. We were a little high maintenance with last minute requests to changes arrival and departure dates, and she was pleasantly accommodating.
The property manager is available for any issues that may arise and is a pleasure to meet.
The telescope was a fun surprise and my husband enjoyed using it.
We visit family in the area as often as possible, and this home will be a first choice in the future.
Shannon, it was a pleasure to have you and your husband in our home over the Christmas holiday. I am glad you want to return; you are welcome anytime!
