Lakehead House Rental Photos and Description

Panoramic Views, Private, Sunk In Hot Tub, Custom Split Level Deck, 3 Bed/2 Bath

The first thing you’ll probably notice arriving at your new home away from home is the view, it's a breathtaking gaze into the McCloud arm of Shasta Lake. Unobstructed by houses, roads or anything getting in the way of you and the masterpiece outstretched around your house. The privacy and solitude in both locations is the cherry on top that makes sitting out in front of the pristine waters of Shasta Lake just that much more tranquil.

The second thing you'll probably notice is the professional and highly attentive owner. Shasta Lake Properties has been with him for 10 years and you can really tell he puts his heart and soul into making sure every guest is more than taken care of. His care and love for the property shows in every detail of the amazing houses he provides. The craftsmanship of the houses inside and out is impeccable. Both DreamVeiw and LodgeView have incredibly relaxing vibes and excellent furnishing with modern amenities. The choice to have your own personal cook and Ken's dedication really make you feel like you're getting so much more value out of your stay. As a local and enthusiast of all things in and around the lake, he's more than happy to recommend any of the many things to do while you enjoy your stay (a lot of which located within a five mile radius) and take care of any of your concerns or go the extra mile to get you anything you need.

If you're looking for a one of a kind stay, with the best view in Northern California, amazing service and the best private getaway on the lake. This is the place for you. Just you, nature and quality living. We hope to see you soon!

Shasta Lake Properties purchased this house in 1998

Why Shasta Lake Properties chose Shasta Cascade

I was a world champion wakeboarder, so I've traveled all over the United States, Mexico and Hawaii. I'm also a general contractor, so when the opportunity presented itself, I didn't hesitate. There was approximately 160 acres being sold. The incredible panoramic views of the mountains and Shasta Lake had already won me over. I taught wakeboarding school on Shasta Lake for 11 years so I know the lake well. Considering how many lakes I've been on, boating & wakeboarding, Shasta Lake is the lake that stole my heart. It holds a very special place in my life and keeps my passion burning for what we do here at Shasta Lake Properties. To be able to build this out with my wife Ashley, having had over 41 countries grace & stay with us, having had been able to meet so many diverse and wonderful people, to be able to create a one of a kind masterpiece is something no one else around us has on Shasta Lake. That is why I chose to purchase this property and turn these homes and this property into something we can share with the world!

What makes this house unique

Our privacy is unmatched with a locked gate entry to the homes and property for total privacy, our views are unmatched by anyone on Shasta Lake or anywhere in the Shasta Cascade! We sit on the most spectacular arm of Shasta Lake, across from Lake Shasta Caverns on the McCloud Arm. We are centrally located in the heart of the Shasta-Trinity Cascades. Our guests have unlimited access from all directions within a 1 hour reach for the furthest breathtaking scenery. From Blue Ribbon fishing in the McCloud River, Sacramento River or the Trinity River, to sightseeing Castle Crags, Burney Falls to the Trinities, to snowboarding at Mount Shasta or playing in the snow at Mount Lassen, to unlimited recreational activities year round! Our reviews say it all so please take the time to read them!

Serene and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

DreamView is an enchanting property perched on a hillside overlooking lovely Lake Shasta. It is well-managed, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully appointed. Everything is here for a perfect, relaxing holiday enjoying the scenery and villages of this gorgeous region in California. You will not regret choosing DreamView as your Californian vacation retreat. We recommend Klub Klondike in Lakehead for a time trip back to a classic American roadside watering hole. Known as 'the best dive on I 5, it is fun and funky. We also enjoyed a day trip through the mountains to beautiful Eureka on the coast. Antique lovers will find many places to browse locally.

Truly amazing views

The views from the kitchen at this house are truly incredible. Waking up to watch the sunrise was one of our favorite parts of our trip. Absolutely breathtaking!

Truly an amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went up in mid-October and stayed for over a week with our two children. I cannot say enough about this place. Ken, the owner, is a wonderfully friendly man and his passion and care for the property is apparent from the moment you arrive. The location was off the beaten path and if you are looking for a nice view and a quieter place than normal, this is it. The view from the patio (and especially the hot tub with a glass of wine) is simply beyond description. We were fortunate enough to be present during a meteor shower and it was a sight to see.

The home itself is very well maintained and absolutely spotless. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking essentials and leaves almost nothing to be desired. We enjoyed eating our meals on the patio and in the scenic dining room. We throughly enjoyed the fact that the home was spacious and not crammed full of bunk beds and game tables like other places we've stayed. There was room to relax and each person had their own little space to relax in or sleep in late. The rooms are appointed with bathrobes, towels, and extra pillows. Heaters are plenty and bottled water is provided free. We used the outdoor grill one night to cook up some salmon. My wife enjoyed her clothes so if you pack heavy bring an extra hanger or two. The lower bathroom is something to see and I enjoyed the shower greatly after a day's hiking. There is probably a nuclear reactor somewhere nearby because the water was unbelievably hot, instantly.

The wife and I agreed this was among the better places we've ever stayed. We have no complaints and already look forward to our next visit. Believe it or not they even offer food service with meals prepared in the home for you. I'm the chef in our family and cooking is my stress release and pleasure so we didnt partake. We were stocked for food for every meal of our stay but the option exists and the pictures I saw looked impressive.

Worth mentioning: The Internet service was spotty from day to day but that's no reflection on the location or owners as much as the Internet provider but if you plan on bringing an Apple TV or other streaming video options be aware that it worked great one night then not at all the next. (We had to wait until we got home to finish season six of Game of Thrones. The torture!)

All in all I cannot recommend this rental enough. It was truly worth every penny (and the 675mi drive) for what you get and you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you and really appreciate the great review! I really do put a lot of love into these homes and it's great what I do could make your stay that much better! sorry about the wi-fi but I may not have been clear enough that since we are up in a more remote location we have a data cap and can unfortunately only provide one gig until better options are available. Thank you again and we loved having you!

Breathtaking views for a relaxing and luxurious stay at Shasta Lake.

  • 5 of 5

In complete love with the views! Morning, afternoon and evening relaxation inside or outside is breathtaking of Shasta Lake.

This house offers pretty much every amenity one could need for a short or extended stay. The owner, Ken, is amazingly helpful and extremely easy to contact, super willing.

We even had our younger kids with us and we all stayed downstairs. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi and had fun watching boats, birds and the fog rolling in.

Definitely the place to stay if you are interested in anything around Shasta Lake/Shasta county!

A Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had the pleasure of staying at the Dream View Home. From the moment we arrived at the property we were overcome with breathtaking views and a complete sense of relaxation. Once we settled in we had the pleasure to meet Ken and Lori to get the run down of the house ins and outs. Ken made us feel more than comfortable and was quick to help make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We found it hard to leave the house on our stay due to the views that can't be beat. We spent most of our day either in the hot tub or sitting on the deck watching the wildlife. The Dream View Home speaks for itself. Thanks again Ken, we will definitely be back again!

A more gorgeous location is hard to imagine. Peaceful, serene. Magnificent views of the lake from every room. The house is spacious, comfortable and includes all of the modern amenities. Hot tub on the deck, overlooks a spectacular night sky, Milky Way included at no extra cost. Ken is a very responsive host. If you like water sports, nearby Holiday Harbor offers berths and a wide range of rentals. Redding is a fast 20 minutes away, but you'll not want to leave the peace and quiet of Dreamview. Would recommend to friends and family.
