*The Shasta Lake house is situated on a kid-safe, quiet cul-de-sac, close to shopping, marinas, gas station, & other services.

About Nancy J. Rennekamp

Hi! My name is Nancy, and my husband Mike and I live here in Lakehead, a few miles from the Shasta Lakehouse. I work at a nearby restaurant/bar, and I know the local marina owners, store owners, fishing guides, and so on. We've lived in the area for almost twenty years, so we also know the lake and the surrounding areas well. We're usually available and happy to help if you have questions about what to do, or where to go, or if you have special needs, such as catering, or renting equipment.

Lots of vacation rentals are run by out-of-towners, but we take pride in being available to make sure you're vacation is the best! We HAVE to run a great house, because if anything wasn't just as we said, you'd know where to find us!!

I'll be happy to meet your group when you arrive and show you around. It's always fun to see the look on people's faces when they arrive and see how amazing our whole layout is. And it's even more fun to hear from them later about what a great time they had, and how much they loved the house, with something for everyone. They're always amazed at how everything is provided for them.

We love what we do, seeing families come together, and hearing how the city folks got a rare chance to enjoy the great outdoors. It's the best.

Come see us!!

Nancy J. Rennekamp purchased this house in 1990

Why Nancy J. Rennekamp chose Lakehead

I always wanted to live on a lake and raise our daughter in a rural area. With the two stories, it was like living in a tree house.

What makes this house unique

Full lake or low lake....You will get complete enjoyment from the house, it's location, and all there is to do..

Take advantage of all the house house offers for day use or overnighters.

Book now for the Holidays !

You simply get the best of the best at this mini resort. You never have to leave to have fun.

Everything is spread out so when you want some privacy you'll have it. The house is unique for being close to everything yet very private and surrounded by trees. You have the feeling of being in your own world. There are many special touches added over the years of having lived there. A good time at the Lakehouse does not depend on the water levels or the weather to have fun. There may be other places that can accommodate your group as well but if you like to be in private surroundings instead of a neighborhood with homes all around, the Lakehouse offers that. If you would like to be able to walk around the lake and easily walk to all the venues and markets this house is in the perfect location.. All that and the indoor and outdoor activities make it one of the first and best vacation rentals on Lake Shasta

Love, Love, LOVE!!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about this home. It looked better in person than it did in the photos. Aside from there being no lake in the backyard (beyond anybody's control), this place is totally worth a visit to Lakehead. I was impressed with the bedrooms. They were all a nice size and very clean and comfortable. The master bedroom was awesome with a lot of room and a beautiful bathroom. There were 19 people in our group and this house comfortably fit us all! We even utilized the tents in the back, which folks loved. My sister kept saying how she was extremely impressed with all the dishes and silverware. Not once did we run out of anything with our large group. I was really impressed with how much there is to do on the property itself. There is a swing set for the kids, which they loved; a volleyball/badminton net, which I loved, a game room, and firepits! We sat by the fire having drinks and making s'mores and memories. I can go on and on about all that this house offered and the wonderful time we had. But what really stood out to me was how wonderful the owners of the house were. Nancy and her husband Michael were very responsive and attentive to our needs. Even though Nancy had plans to be out of town and then to entertain guests, she made sure she at least stopped by to meet me and see how everything was going. Nancy and Michael are definitely class acts! I already highly recommended this place to friends and will hopefully be back next year.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

When my in-laws and I were searching for a house to rent, we came across this gorgeous house near Shasta Lake. We found the house affordable with all the amenities we were looking for. It was a major plus that the owner, Nancy was a gem to work with! Two payments allowed everyone to budget accordingly. Upstairs, the wraparound deck and 4 bedrooms had a great view. The kitchens had everything we needed to cook for 18 people (plus 3 babies). The yard had a swing set the kids loved an the game room kept everyone occupied for hours of pool and ping-pong every day! I would highly recommend it to any group!!!

Family reunion blast!!!

  • 4 of 5

We came together, as we do every other year, from all over the USA and Saudi and spent a wonderful week together. The house was perfect. Big, roomy, lots to do for everyone, inside and outside, very nice and attentive owners. The stairs have built in gates to protect the little ones. It was great!! The only thing keeping my review from being 5+ stars is that the lake is so very dried up. It would not have change our staying there, but it might have changed where we made reservations for water craft. All in all, it was wonderful!! Thanks Nancy and Mike

Great house for a Shasta vacation

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house for my family's vacation this year and it was perfect. We needed a large house to accommodate grandparents, parents and kids. The house has plenty of room for everyone including a large kitchen, lots of bedrooms and bathrooms and multiple living areas. We found everything we needed in the kitchen and the laundry room is very convenient. The outside spaces and "campground" were wonderful, with lots of places for the kids to play and comfortable beds in the tent cabins. With the game room, playground, badminton court, screened-in porches, fire pits, horseshoes and hiking trails right out the back door, there was plenty for everyone to do. It is centrally located to all the Shasta attractions and there is a store within walking distance. Our host met us upon arrival and was available if needed, but we never had to call her because whenever we needed something, we found it to be there. I would recommend this property to anyone with a large group and hope to stay there again with my family.

Great, informal place for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in good shape and there is lots of space on the property to gather or get away from it all. Our week flew by! We did have a few minutes drive to get to water, but this has been a very dry year. After a good winter the lake is right behind the house! We had a group of 20 people including kids stay here and every one of us had a great time. The owners have thought of every convenience and are very hospitable.

Owner's Response: Nothing makes us happier than hearing our guests had a good time. It is very important to us that the house and adjoining recreation area provide plenty to do while friends and families gather to make lasting memories. Lake Shasta is a very big lake with miles of shoreline. Even when the lake is low there is still plenty of water to boat and play in. You just have to go a little further to do so. We are expecting a wet winter in which case the lake will be back behind the house for next summer. We have watched it (from the house) fill to capacity in 30 days one January. Snow lovers should watch the weather. We are open year round and Mt. Shasta Board & Ski Park is a quick easy drive from the house. Chris & Natalie with friends and family were terrific guests and a delight to meet. I sincerely hope they visit us again. Nancy

Awesome House.. Best Vacation Ever !

  • 5 of 5

I spent 6 days with family and friends at the Lakehouse. We booked it for 5 days but our gracious host, Nancy, made it possible for us to stay another night. We were not done having fun. We brought our boat & had to launch & moor a near by marina. It was a little further from the house because of the lake level but was not a problem. It only took us about 5 min by car and worth it. There was still plenty of water in the lake for boating. It was really something to see what is exposed. A geography lesson for all.

When we were not on our boat we stayed around the house walking, exploring, & just enjoying the wilderness. The kids loved playing basketball while the adults competed at horseshoes.

At night we played games till the wee hours. Pool & ping pong were some favorites with the kids.

The grownups got into some serious poker games. We were never bored. The place offered so much we did not want to leave. What made me really happy was there was very little TV watched or phones in use. Nancy was great and very helpful... We are coming back...we reserved it during a time when we can enjoy the tents too.

Sincerely, Ellen & Gang
