A rustic cabin for a Lassen excursion

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just what we expected for our Lassen trip. The kitchen allowed us to prepare our meals instead of going out (to the one restaurant in the very small town). There was only two of us but the cabin has room for a large family. Thank you.

Cozy property with great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. It was close to the Lassen visitor center.

The kids enjoyed the loft.

There is no Wi-fi, but that was not a problem for us.

The cooking range has been upgraded as one of the earlier responses by JoAnn suggests.

It was good value for money.

We would definitely come back to this property.

JoAnn was prompt in her response.

Nice place to stay and a great value

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay here over a long weekend.

A group of friends and families came up for snow play during the day and

music, games and camaraderie in the evenings. Easy access to Lassen

and other cross-country ski trails.

OK, five stars may not be a good description of the place, but after reading

the other reviews and looking at the photos I knew what we were getting and

it met our needs well. With all the beds filled and the cost divided up, everyone

thought it was a great deal.

It's definitely and older place, and maybe a bit run-down, but was clean, and

comfortable. Any issues have been compensated for, like the non functioning

wall heaters, with plenty of space heaters. I'd recommend the place, but do

read the other reviews. Some have written a lot more than I will, and they tell

you all you need to know. Hope to use the place again next year

Spacious mountain cabin with lots of sleep spaces

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 3 families with small children and found this cabin to be a good fit for our needs. As others have noted, the decor is rustic and dated, but it's a funky mountain cabin, and it didn't much matter to us.

We loved the proximity of the cabin to the Lassen visitors center at the park's south entrance (15 minutes). There are fantastic sledding areas there. No need to go anywhere else for snow play, and the convenience of being so close meant that we could go play in the snow in the morning, come home for lunch and naps, and then go back out for some late afternoon sledding again.

The kids (ages 3 and 4) loved playing in the loft—this was a big plus—but future guests will want to know that it's not baby/kid-proofed (there is a gate available), and there's a dangerous ledge that we made off-limits for them (but of course they only partially complied). The one dated thing that really did make a difference was the stove/oven. Future guests may want to note that the stove has two burners and a griddle instead of the standard four burners. The front burner doesn't heat well (water won't boil no matter how long you leave it on high), but there was a separate hot plate burner that the owner has added on the counter, I'm sure to compensate for that front stove burner. Definitely helped, but if you're cooking for a group, which we were, not having the other two burners can be challenging. Future guests may want to plan meals that can be at least partially cooked in the oven or on the grill. Speaking of...the grill has a gas burner on the side, and we used that as well. The griddle is great for pancakes and french toast. The oven temp and length of cooking seemed to be right on the first time we used it, but the second time it seemed to take about twice as long as my oven at home, so future guests will want to watch their oven-baked dishes a little more carefully than is normally required.

There are so many places to sleep—I envision this place being fantastic for families with older kids who would be happy to make their bed on one of the many futons. The loft has a bunch of twin beds plus a double, and there are two bedrooms with king-size beds, plus a room with a couple of futons.

We had one issue with the property that was related to the weather, and the owner (Jo Ann) resolved it fairly and quickly. Communication was good.
