About the property

2 bedroom, 2 queen beds plus a futon, epic mountain views

Alpenglow Manor Guest House is situated on the beautiful and breathtaking mountainside of Mount Shasta, just one mile from the quaint and charming downtown of Mt. Shasta city. The Guest House has stunning views of the mountain from the kitchen, dining room, and living room that will leave you in awe, especially during the alpenglow, when the sun sets and bathes the mountain in brilliant colors of pink, purple and orange. The Guest House sits on the second story above the garage on 5 landscaped acres, which allows for the best opportunity for magnificent views. Your hosts live in the adjacent main house and are readily available for any questions. The secluded property has a gated entry and paved private drive that allows for peace and quiet while you relax and unwind. This is a perfect all-year-round vacation spot that accommodates up to 6 people with 2 bedrooms (each with a queen bed) and 1 bath, and an additional full futon in the living room. Please note: Due to our vacation rental permit we can legally have a maximum of 6 guests stay overnight.

The idyllic location of our Guest House is completely surrounded by nature but also only a 15 minute walk to downtown where you’ll have access to grocery stores, a yoga studio, post office, laundromat, rental equipment shops, gift shops, coffee shops, restaurants and more. We are a 20 minute drive to Mt. Shasta Ski Park, 15 minutes from the Nordic Center, and also conveniently located just up the street from Shastice Park, which hosts outdoor concerts in the summer and an ice skating rink in the winter.

The 1100 square foot Guest House is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The kitchen, dining room and living room have an open floor plan. Garage parking is available for one vehicle, and there is plenty of additional parking on the property for a family motor home or snowmobile trailer. The entryway features a large mudroom for storing skis, boots, etc. Inside your personal and private entrance is a fully equipped kitchen with coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, microwave, cooking spices, a dishwasher and other essential kitchenware to making cooking a breeze. The dining room has amazing views of the mountain and pond from the craftsman-style dining table that seats 6. The cozy living room boasts a propane stove heater to keep you warm in the winter months, and a comfy couch plus a full futon with optional bedding to accommodate 2 sleepers. There is a 40' HD TV with an Amazon streaming service provided (or you can login with your own), a Blu-ray player that also plays DVDs and CDs, with a collection of movies, books and games to enjoy. Please note that we don't get normal network or cable channels. Free Wi-Fi is available. Both bedrooms offer queen beds with soft organic cotton sheets in summer, and plush luxury flannel sheets in winter. The bathroom is bright with high ceilings and has a tub/shower, organic towels and personal size natural bath soap, lotion, and shampoo compliments of your hosts, in case you forget something. Only eco-friendly cleaning products are used throughout the Guest House.

Our vacation rental is licensed with Siskiyou County so you can book with confidence. We want to keep a clean and allergy free environment for all of our guests, so at this time we do not accept pets or smoking. Walk the 5-acre grounds and pick a picnic spot or snowshoe right out your door, Alpenglow Manor Guest House is the perfect location for your next getaway.

Outstanding Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Roomy, open, outstanding views of Mt. Shasta from various windows, great well equipped kitchen fit for cooking a complete roasted turkey Xmas dinner. Everything is set up with the comfort of the guests in mind. We've stayed in many places over Xmas but this was by far the best. And the owners are warm and welcoming but after that you never see or hear them. Very quiet location. I'd be happy to stay there again and again.

What a delightful place to stay. The guest house is spacious and comfortable, with an incredible view of Mount Shasta as well as good views of Black Butte and Mount Eddy. The beds are extremely comfortable, and I love the open feel of the bathroom with its high ceiling and natural light. The unit is up one flight of stairs; great for maximizing the views and air flow, but something to note for anyone with mobility problems.

The property is just as described, lush and park-like. The hosts, Cailin and Tim, live in the adjacent but separate main house, readily available if needed but careful to provide privacy to the guests.

On each of multiple visits, Cailin and Tim were gracious hosts, providing for basic needs and beyond. On this summer's visit, the lingering snow kept the road to some of the hiking trails closed much later than normal. When we asked about it, Cailin went out of her way to find out where there were accessible hikes with wildflowers currently blooming. Later in the visit, she surprised us with freshly baked cookies, still warm from the oven.

As you can see from the reviews listed on this site, guests are overwhelmingly happy with this location. Nevertheless, the hosts seek to continually improve it. There is a book in the unit for guests to write suggestions. I noticed several of these suggestions already implemented in the unit, from the simple addition of kid-friendly plates to the investment of a full-size washer and dryer.

Highly recommended!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property! An absolutely amazing view of the mountain and great landscaping! When cooking dinners or breakfast there's a beautiful little pond you can look at. The guest house is in great shape and very clean.

I was worried when I informed there was no AC. We stayed in the middle of a heat spell and have an infant daughter. But the owner suggested to open all the windows at night and close them up early, she said it would stay cool during the day and it did!

We definitely want to stay in this location again.

About Cailin Henson

I grew up in Mt. Shasta and I'm happy to return here after being away for 14 years. I really enjoy the peace and quiet, the fresh air and delicious crisp mountain water straight from the tap. My husband and I have stayed at numerous vacation rentals around the world and have really enjoyed the experience. I wanted to offer a similar enjoyable experience to others in the hometown that I love.

Cailin Henson purchased this house in 2014

Why Cailin Henson chose Mount Shasta

Our property is one of the closest 5-acre parcels to downtown Mt. Shasta, allowing us to be surrounded by nature, but with convenient access to downtown shops and restaurants. The grounds are manicured to give a park-like feeling with two ponds. The property has views of Mt. Shasta, Mt. Eddy, and Black Butte. Deer, bunnies and a variety of birds are all frequent visitors.

What makes this house unique

Bright and sunny living space with magnificent views. Paved private driveway and garage parking.
