About the property

Beautiful Lodge Located Right On The Sacramento River.

Just gorgeous is what the guests will say when they walk in the door of this custom built home right on the river!!. Quiet and serene save for the gentle rush of the Sacramento River you see from every window. Watch Ospreys swoop down for a bite and see kayakers cruise on by.

The home has a luxury feel to it with high end comfy furniture. Lots of amenities and quality finishings. The kitchen is large , stocked with everything you need. Open floor plan so you can toss your salad while watching the river.. Large country round dining room which seats 6. There is an eating bar with space for an additional 3 people.

Two beautiful master suites with queens each with a large bath. Third bedroom has twin beds.

Located in the quaint neighborhood of Castella with views of the Castle Craigs from just up the street. Fabulous neighborhood to take a country stroll and drink in the smell of fresh air. Great hiking nearby at Castle Craigs State Park as well as popular swimming holes. You will hear the train as it chugs it way up the canyon towards Historical Dunsmuir just 5 miles away.

Caution: This home is located directly on the Sacramento River and could be very dangerous if you are not alert and cautious. Please make sure to keep a watch on small children.

No large gatherings, no parties, no retreats, no weddings Please

***Note: You will hear the train so please bring ear plugs for night time if you are sensitive to trains.

Overall good choice for Christmas holidays!

Plenty of firewood. I did not expect a neighborhood setting, however that did not change our enjoyment.

Kitchen well stocked......I would recommend getting rid of rusty baking pans and adding more dish towels.

Very comfortable home.

Great House!

  • 4 of 5

We just spent 3 nights in the River Lodge - and had a great time. The river outside was amazing, as were the chipmunks and squirrels!! I won't mention the skunk that wandered up onto the deck one night and he did not grace us with any smells. Great accomodations in the kitchen and bathrooms clean and well stocked. The fireplace smoked a bit though. Not sure what we were doing wrong? Perfect get away for our wine tasting bunch!! 13 cork weekend!

Awesome house and location!

  • 4 of 5

The house and location are the best VRBO we have stayed in. Comfortable and well equipped. Loved hearing the trains and watching the river and wildlife--many birds (including a bald eagle), skunks, deer. A few negatives: living room rugs and one upholstered chair were dirty, but rest of the house was spotless, glasses in short supply (don't like plastic), poor supply of toilet paper (one bathroom had 3 sheets), gas barbecue was very small. Be aware that there is no sizable grocery store nearby so bring food. Wonderful place for fishing, hiking, biking and sitting on the well designed deck. Weather was hot in the afternoon, but very pleasant mornings, evenings and overnight. Short drive to Mount Shasta and surrounding attractions.

Quiet oasis on the river

  • 5 of 5

If your going to Dunsmuir for any stay, this is a lovely place to stay away from the crowd. It has 3 beds with baths and sits right on the river. It doesn't have Internet and tv is lame, so prepare to interact with the other humans along on the trip. It has a large great room for everyone to gather and fantastic decks descending to the river. We have stayed there twice and enjoyed both stays. Next time I want to meet the neighbors. And, if your coming with kids make sure you go to the lake ,it's beautiful with Mount Shasta looming above.
