The house was perfect for our group of 14. The kitchen was well equiped. I always bring some of my own kitchenware but found everythng we needed and more. We made a stop in Redding and shopped at Costco and Safeway so we were able to stocked the frig to full capasity. With the game room (garage) being right next to the kitchen we filled two ice chest with ice to keep all of our drinks cold and handy.
Sitting out on the deck playing cards and listening to music while we were BBQ'ing was wonderful. The weather was 104 degress for a few days but we were able to enjoy the deck in the mornings and evenings. The hot tub was used later in the evening and was actually very comfortable. The pool and ping pong tables got a lot of use. Good entertainment for our group ages 11 through 72.
I loved the way the house was setup. Grandkids used the upstairs TV room for their video games. The master bedroom had a private bathroom and TV in the room. I used it for a hide-a-way to nap and read. Livingroom was big enough for a bunch of us to watch the opening night of the Olympics on TV. Nice size dinning table.
None of us were able to get cell phone service but we had my laptop and the Wi-Fi worked out good. Just needed to walk down the road a bit to get cell service.
The kids found two swimming holes walking distance from the house. Even though the water in the lake was going down about a foot per day the access to the water was easy. Took lunch and stayed almost all day.
The area was beautiful. We had rented a house in Dunsmire the year before so we were familar with some of the places to go. We were about 25-30 minutes away from Redding (south) or Dunsmire (north). A few of our group headed to the Water Park in Redding for a day of fun and others went shopping in Shasta City and Mc Cloud. There is a great, little, hole-in-the-wall restuarant/pub in Dunsmire where they have excellent tangerine beer, outside seating and live music.
We had an issue that need attention and when I called LeeAnn we got an immediate response.
There was plenty of hot water for us to all bathe daily and keep up with the laundry.
Got to tour Shasta Dam, caves, Birney Falls, Whiskey Town, Shasta City, McCloud, Dunsmire & other places.
The house was nice and huge and we all had private space, if we wanted it.
Except for the minor incident, that was taken care of ,The house was exceptional in all respects. My family thought I did a good job picking it from online.
