Fabulous home - only the name should be changed!
This truly is a wonderful home for a family getaway. Our family of eleven (2 grandparents, 5 middle-aged adults, 2 teenagers, 2 toddlers) had a lovely time enjoying this secluded home in the forest. The hot tub was used, the deck was wonderful. The expanse of the yard was a pleasant surprise. The availability of billiards/pool and table tennis in the converted garage was a big plus. We loved taking walks as a family from the backyard area towards the lake and on towards Sugarloaf. The amount of space afforded to everyone was more than ample. Another nice touch were the baby gates which helped with the toddlers. The kitchen was well stocked with cutlery, tableware, etc. No condiments/staples except for salt so keep that in mind when you plan your trip.
Our only issue is with the name of the house which is both listed on the website and plastered on the front of the home: Lakeview. Yes, the house is on a street by that name so it's okay to call it that, however, it would likely be more accurate to name it "Trainview". There ARE train tracks that run along the back of the house and trains do come through about once every 45 minutes from about 7am to 9pm. Actually, I believe some even run at night, but truthfully it didn't bother us at all. We all enjoyed watching the trains as they passed by, but I think it's important for other folks who view this VRBO home to be aware of this. It is likely that the train frontage is one of the reasons the property has such a nice amount of land which simply adds to the experience in my opinion. You will enjoy your trip to Shasta if you choose this home - you won't be disappointed!
