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!
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
This property is part of our family history and is very special to us.
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.
What a perfect home away from home you provided us in your lovely Crabill Lane Cottage! The house is so comfy and cozy with everything we needed provided. All of us enjoyed our mornings and evenings on the wisteria laden deck. The cool breezes were delightful after a long day fishing or hiking, and the views were simply stunning. Our boys loved seeing the deer and the occasional osprey along the river and in the fields. We were delighted to add a few new birds to our birding list, and fell in love with the California Quail covey that visited most every evening and morning. Thank you so much for our wonderful vacation -- we will see you again, for sure!
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.
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.

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.
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.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay - wonderful accommodations, land and views. This area of CA is truly a hidden treasure, so close to Mt. Shasta, Mt. Lassen and Burney Falls. The five of us had plenty of room to spread out and cook wonderful meals in the well-appointed kitchen. We also enjoyed local hospitality while participating in the Fall River Century, a truly lovely bike ride. We plan to come back!
We were two families who rented out this amazing property for 3 nights during the memorial day weekend. We were seeking an escape from our crazy busy lives and this small town with a population of 300 odd people looked like the perfect place to get away from it all. And boy did we make the best decision ever.
The house was perfect for all our needs. Apart from having all the amenities we could ever ask for, the house itself excludes a certain warmth that makes you feel welcome. The artwork in and around the house that were created by the actual people who lived there gives that extra bit of personality to the house which I have rarely seen elsewhere.
The south facing deck with the un-interrutped and expansive views of the river, the fields, the snow capped Lassen peak and other mountains is indeed a visual spectacle. My wife and I both agreed that this view bettered the ocean facing homes that had until then been our favorite vacation rentals. Apart from the sounds of the birds, some water fowls and occasional deers there is nothing to disturb your peace and privacy. At night the sky lights up with a million stars. Using the sky guide app on my iphone, my wife and I spent a long time identifying stars, formations and and the milk way. We even saw two shooting stars. There is very little light pollution, so the sky is amazing to look at during the night.
We spent one day at Lassen, an hour's drive away and 1 day at Lava Beds National monument which takes an hour and half. Lava Beds really is a hidden gem. It is a small park with very few visitors, but so much to offer. We spend a whole day exploring the caves there.
Kelly, the property manager lives in the only other house in that neighborhood. She was the most kind and warm lady. Knowing how much it would mean to the kids, she invited us over to spend some fun time with her 2 horses and dogs. For the kids, this became the highlight of the trip. Getting to feed the horses, even mount them, that was super exciting for them and must admit it was a lot of fun for us adults too.
A word of thanks to Jayne the owner who left no stone unturned in making sure we had all the information we needed about the house and where to find things, how to operate equipments etc. This level of detail I have rarely found in other vacation rental owners. So thanks a lot for that.
