About Mark Parker
Our extended family has been in the north state for decades after relocating from southern California. We often played on Shasta Lake during the day, falling in love with this magnificent lake and natural surroundings. We never wanted the day to end!
Mark Parker purchased this House in 2009
Why Mark Parker chose Lakehead
Our family and friends finally stayed in a rental house in Lakehead for a few days and immediately recognized the value of a multi day stay near the lake. A few years later through perseverance and patience, we were able to find a property best suited for families to enjoy time both on and off the water.
What makes this House unique
Home is ideally situated near Marina and lake. Home has lake views. Open design allows people to share kitchen, dining area, living room and deck as one large space. Entire and separate floor devoted to game room. Shasta Lake is rated #1 in the world for wake boarding and water skiers. ("Top Ten Lakes To Wakeboard", 2014.} Salt Creek waterski area is directly out of Sugarloaf marina which is steps away from the house. Sugarloaf Marina is located on the deep part of the largest lake arm and enjoys several docks, marina store and launches including a low water launch. Minutes to eating and drinking establishments and store.

Great house for a family trip
Indeed this property does have the ideal floor plan for a multi family lake house. And surely you will appreciate the “natural” mood inspired by the warm wood and stone decor and other finishing touches. You will even agree that proper attention was given to striking that perfect balance between fun, comfort and relaxation.
But it's the outdoors that makes this the place to be. Steps to the best lake we have ever been on for playing on the water. Watersports from serious to recreational, fishing, paddling, swimming and boating of all kinds. Sugarloaf Marina is right there (walk to it, see it from the house) and has everything you need for boating. Uncrowded launches, houseboat and small boat rentals, dock rentals, marina store and fuel on the water. Local off road vehicle access only a few miles in either direction. Chappie Shasta OHV park isn't far, at the base of Shasta Dam. Hiking and biking trails can be found scattered in all directions. During those times you choose to just wind down, there are lake and mountain views, wildlife watching and restaurants and bars only a few miles away. While on extended stays you might just drive a little over a half hour into Redding for theaters, bowling alleys, shopping malls, stocking up on groceries, etc. Of course the nearby Lakeshore Villa Market is friendly and well stocked for just about everything you will need or want. The Shasta Caverns are worth looking at and can be accessed by boat or car. Every arm of the lake can be explored from Sugarloaf. You can see it all and get back home the same day. We usually choose one arm or the other for a day and maybe another a different day. A designated water ski/board area is at Salt Creek Inlet just across the lake from the house and Sugarloaf. We have done ALL the above and have no complaints! Ask us about any of it. Its all really fun!
