Mount Shasta House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-10)
1804 Old Stage sits on 11 acres, but is just minutes from town. Peaceful and private, the back deck overlooks a glade of Douglas Fir trees. The meadow on the North side of the house is great for kids, pets, sketching, lounging, star gazing or hitting golf balls. Pets are welcome. We have a three doghouse kennel as well as loads of room for horses and trailers, tents, mountain bikes, etceteras. Pull out our giant hammock to enjoy reading and napping under the sun. The deck has an enormous old-school barbeque and produces large amounts of delectable grilled cuisine.
The house is full of antiques and artifacts. It is cozy, comfy and lived-in. This house is not for you if you want a pristine, new and sterile environment. This house is for you if you love homes with personality, history and casual elegance. Charmingly intimate, the house is perfect for a honeymoon or romantic get-away, yet also fabulous for entertaining and parties. Formal dining room, fully equipped kitchen, including a vintage commercial waffle-maker, tons of festive, antique table linens make for a good time. The master bedroom is very large, features a king bed and opens out on to the deck. The three remaining bedrooms each have twin beds. The kitchen is spacious, bright and sunny, my favorite room in the house. The dining room also serves as a quiet office/reading room and can accommodate an inflatable mattress for extra guests.
A few miles South is the Mt. Shasta Resort featuring world class golf, tennis, spa and terrific restaurant. Just opposite the resort is Lake Siskiyou, which has camping facilities and a great beach for swimming. The lovely downtown is a three minute drive or an invigorating walk away. The Mt. Shasta Ski Park is a quick 10-15 minute drive and offers spectacular skiing and snowboarding. The ski park is open year round with events and concerts during the summer. All the surrounding towns are full of amazing history and fun to explore. The incredible Stewart Mineral Springs is just up the freeway. Mt. Shasta and the surrounding area is a mountain climber and hiker's dream-come-true. It is also a mecca for sportsmen, with outstanding fishing and hunting. The nature conservancy at the McCloud Reservoir is world-famous for its catch-and-release fly fishing, as are the areas many rivers and lakes. Lava tubes, obsidian mountains, ice caves and other natural oddities abound. Ashland, Oregon's Shakespeare festival is less than one hour away. If you are a pilot, the Dunsmuir Airport is just four miles from the house, and the Weed Airport, with extended runway, is just 8 miles from the house. Contact us for airport pick-up.
Things to be aware of: Our house is old and fragile and takes some special care. It is full of family history and unique things. Admire and use them! We are happy to share this fabulous place with people who will enjoy and respect it. We only have one bathroom which is connected to a septic system. Moderate water use for a large group is a must not to overload the septic tank. Our home is a country house on a dirt road; ant invasions, dust and dirt, the occasional mousey, these things sometimes occur, and if they scare you, we are not your place. As with any house, supervision of small children is important. Please contact us for additional information and photos!

Bay Area Business, Mt. Shasta soul. We both run our own businesses. Love San Francisco and life here, but escape to glorious Mt. Shasta or Southern Thailand for decompression!
My family has had a home in Mt Shasta since 1910. My great Aunt was City Clerk and Notary public in the 1920's. There are five of us in the charming local cemetery. I have Mt. Shasta City in my blood. My father was an avid fly fisherman, hunter and outdoorsman, my mother loved hiking and painting, us kids loved everything about this incredible area, especially the Lemurians!
One of the Seven Spiritual Wonders of the World, Mt. Shasta itself has a truly magical aura. The air, water and even the 'vibes' of this area are restful and healing. That aside, there is truly no place as spectacular and as fun! It is a recreational paradise in all seasons. It is also a creative muse to artists of all kinds. Amazing!
