What do you call this new, architecturally designed, two-story log home nestled in the foothills of the Trinity Alps, and set on twenty-five acres of pine, oak and Manzanita? You call it Sierra Log Lodge, your dream vacation home far from worldly cares… or the center of activity with four telephones and cellular reception.
It’s your call.
A truly great room is the main floor’s dog friendly “Great Room,” where you look up to a soaring 30-foot ceiling of enormous handcrafted sierra pine and cedar log beams and perlins. Six massive windows with western exposure face professionally landscaped California native plants and panoramic mountain views. The stylish furnishings are sturdy tables and chairs as well as comfortable sofas outfitted in colorful native textiles from Chile, Argentina, and Peru. Entertain with cable/satellite TV, a DVD and CD player, a VCR, and music and video libraries.
Downstairs, the fully equipped dream kitchen was carefully planned to include maintenance friendly concrete tables, countertops and floors. Appliances are stainless steel. A pantry (!) provides ample storage for meals served in nearby eating and living areas.
Also downstairs is the ultra-private large master suite with queen sized bed, well appointed bath, and extra large closet.
Upstairs, you’ll find a carpeted loft with a fold down couch and two other spacious bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with two twin beds and extra large closets.
Sleeping in any of the bedrooms rivals a fashionable city hotel because of the 600 thread count cotton sheets and down comforters.
Plan on sleeping six in three bedrooms, or eight if you use the fold down, or even more than you thought possible if you include the downstairs couches.
Picture your family and/or guests gathering on a 270- degree, west facing patio of 1,000 square feet protected by an overhanging roof. Wine and dine them after barbecuing on the two grills. Challenge them on the regulation horseshoe and Bocce Ball courts. You’ll have room for an RV/boat/trailer as well as parking for approximately 15 vehicles on this three and one-half acre property.
Do as little as possible on vacation or engage in such activities as golfing, biking and hiking. Or, find boating and other water sports, as well as fly fishing, available at Shasta Lake—a mere five minutes away. Travel 20 minutes to the Upper and Lower Sacramento Rivers, or 90 minutes to the Trinity, McCloud and Applegate Rivers. The Klamath, Eel and Fall Rivers are only two hours away (along with many lakes and creeks).
Winter visitors can snowmobile, cross country or downhill ski at Mt. Shasta Ski Park. Wine mavens will enjoy the area’s numerous wineries
Some points of interest located in Redding are: the amazing Calatrava 'Sundial' Bridge connecting the Turtle Bay Exploration Park and the McConnell Arboretum; the Sacramento River Trail; the Shasta Dam and Shasta Caverns; and, of course, the spectacular 14,161-foot Mt. Shasta. Railroad buffs can even find a railroad museum located near Dunsmuir.
It’s your unforgettable vacation house… just the way you want it. It's your call.

We are Diane and Al. Diane is a financial consultant and Al, her loyal sidekick, is a judge and raconteur. We chose the Lake Shasta area to build our dream home because of its natural beauty, fabulous fly fishing and myriad outdoor activities.
Managed by Mt. Shasta Vacation Rentals purchased this cabin in 2011
The lodge location was chosen because of its unique combination of a restful, rural setting, yet close proximity to Interstate 5 and the amenities of Redding. Diane and I enjoy the outdoors, fly fishing and a restful get-away from the bustle of San Francisco.
I stayed here with my group of friends for Labor Day weekend, and truly enjoyed my experience. There were 6 of us, and we were very comfortable. The views from the living room are gorgeous - it is worth every penny to just sit outside on the patio and enjoy the breakfast with the stunning views. The host (and property manager) were very responsible and easy to work with prior to and during our stay.
What a dilemma! We booked the lodge thinking that this would be an ideal location to serve as a base camp for adventures on Lake Shasta, hikes to Castle Crags and day trips to Shasta Caverns, the Sundial Bridge and Mt Shasta. The problem is that this place is so nice we never wanted to leave!
The Bocce Ball courts (they are even lighted for night play!), horse shoe pits, huge wrap around covered porch, bbq pits and private setting called to us to just stay, play and relax. We had such a great time we are already planning next years visit!
This vacation home is more beautiful than the pics posted. A lonely quiet place surrounded by tress & amazing view of mountains, sun rise/set. ~10 mins drive to I-5. A mid place for Mt. Shasta, Lassen National park. They have Bocce ball court with lights at night which was a great fun to play among ourselves. This rental place is very clean & they have TV with sound bar with lot of movie collections.
Our only recommendation which would add another nice feature to this rental is hot tub which we were missing. Will be planning to visit again....
The question is why would one extol the charms of the Shasta Log Lodge at the risk of having it booked-up in the future when it will be desperately needed again? Seriously, anyone who stays at this gorgeous secluded lodge will have all expectations exceeded. Last one there's a rotten egg!
An absolutely beautiful lodge in serene surrounding. We had three generations of family stay and it was perfect for young and old. Morning coffee on the veranda and evenings relaxing and enjoying the marvelous sunsets. Loved the pet deer who came to visit each morning and evening.
The setting of the lodge is charmingly rural on 25 acres of oaks, pines and manzanita. lodge is located approximately approximately 3.1 miles off Interstate 5, 21 miles north of Redding. It is an estimated .5 miles to Lake Shasta and 6 miles to Lakehead.
