The SUN House is a unique and comfortable vacation rental. It is appropriately named for its warm and sunny location during winter days and summer evenings.

This single-level custom-designed 2700 square-foot ranch style house is located on the northern tip of Shasta Lake. The Sun House is just one-half block to the lake. Antlers and Sugar Loaf boat launches are only a mile away on the local road. See Google Earth location in photos. It features five Bedrooms, large Kitchen, Hot Tub, an 800 square foot deck with cafe lighting, entertainment room with home Theater, a dance floor and a pool table. Designed to be a vacation rental, there are eight outside doors which eliminate any potential congestion for large groups.

The wall mounted flat screen TV has Roku internet TV and satellite Direct TV, including a full sports package for serious sports fans.

Right outside your door there is a 12-mile, round-trip historic Lake tour on a quiet road.

You can enjoy the beauty and wild wilderness of Lake Shasta on a bicycle or walking and driving. For the very serious bikers there are some great mountain bike trails only a half block away from the Pine House.

Enjoy a cool Sacramento River swimming hole with a sandy beach. I will be happy to show you this beautiful location after your check in.

Lake swimming is best from a boat with the summer lake water temperature between 75 to 80 degrees. The local swimming hole, if available is a short five-minute walk. There is also jogging, wild-life watching and black berry-picking close by. My home is surrounded by tall pine for maximum shade and country feel. The back deck has 5 palm trees for additional shade and cooling. There are no mosquitoes.

The Sun House has ample parking at the house for boat trailers and cars.

There are many other available activities in the Shasta I-5 corridor besides Shasta Lake:

Lake and river fly fishing.

Mountain hiking at Castella National Park.

Exploring the historic towns of Dunsmuir and

Mt Shasta.

Tours of the Caverns.

See the water falls at McCloud and Burney.

2016 planned upgrades:

To accommodate large groups or meetings, there is an additional home available next door. These homes can be rented Separately or as a Combo.

See the Pine House at VRBO 442527 listing.

The two homes together as a combo can easily accommodate 35. There are walking paths between the homes which provide direct access without going back onto the street. The combo rental has 12 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, almost 6000 square feet of space, three hot tubs, a pool table and ping pong table, two outside eating areas, three gas BBQ and one charcoal BBQ, two laundry rooms, two inside dining rooms including one which accommodates a group of twenty for dinning and meetings. There are 22 outside access exit doors, and four wireless networks capable of serving over 50 guests at one time. There is off-street parking for two boats and 10-12 cars.

Please call Al at 800 694 5282 for Combo pricing and Reservations.

I personally welcome all guests at check-in. My promise to you is to make your stay in the country as pleasant as possible. I hope to meet you in the near future.

We enjoyed our week at the sun house with 3 gathering areas for family time and 5 bedrooms for quiet time. We all enjoyed the hot tub and billiards and badminton.

A great getaway in Shasta

  • 4 of 5

Super thankful for the Sun house. We had to evacuate from our area during the fires and needed a place to stay with our friends. Al was so kind and opened his house up last minute for us. We really loved the backyard. The hot tub was the best!!!!

Great house for family reunion

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for our reunion of 3 families. Everyone had their own bedroom. The two bathrooms were situated where everyone could use them. The pool table was a big hit and the family room had plenty of seating. The outdoor area was big enough for everyone to spread out and enjoy the activities. It's an older home that has been added on to, but was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We only gave it 4 stars because it does show some wear and tear, but was not an issue for us.

Al West was extremely helpful and responsive to our needs/questions. We will definitely go back!

Great houses for big families with an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We've rented Al's Sun House & adjacent Pine House for long weekends in August each of the last two years. The houses are perfect for vacation rentals and have all of the appliances, grills, dishes, etc. that you would expect. They are always clean, the back decks are awesome and the proximity to the lake and Antlers couldn't be any better. Al is a gracious host who really cares about the quality of stay of his guests! He spends time at check in to show everyone through the houses and answer any questions about vacationing in the area. You won't find a better setup or host anywhere on Shasta for your family vacations.

Joy at the SunHouse

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the Sun House in early August 2017 during peak temperatures reached to 104; luckily, the AC kept us comfortable (southern bedrooms were less cooler). The home is located on the North end of Lake Shasta, we just loved it there, it was convenient for our large family to also rent the adjoining Pinehouse that was separated by a gate that we opened for easy access for the children, this was ideal since Sunhouse had a large dirt backyard conducive to playing volleyball, badminton and a well maintained hot tub. The house is clean, lots of beds and a large gathering room with a big screen TV, the kitchen is well equipped and a dinning room table to accommodate 10+ In addition, the location takes advantage of the gorgeous scenery, deer in the backyard, a neighborhood market as well as being so close to Antler Resort where you can moor your boat, rent an assortment of water vehicles (patio boats) and close to a public boat launch.

Al the owner was attentive to our needs, he took an active role in providing customer service; in fact, he makes daily trips for garbage and other maintenance.

Cons: The Sun House is in need of new carpet that may be due to unavoidable consequence of constant flow of renters.

Parking in the front of the house is discouraged, driveway is the best

However, this is offset by being able to have a lot of outside room to gather and BBQ, by the way did I mention that there is a pool table for your enjoyment inside. In addition, there are so many nearby great hikes and walking trails and a waterhole that one is never bored!

Owner's Response: This was a great family. This carpet has a pool table sitting on it. I have decided to move the table and install new carpet. Will happen soon.
