About the property

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!

3 total turn key marinas within 5 miles, boat slips, watercraft rentals, and moorage for clients who need it, complete private parking for your vehicles and watercraft.

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!

Beautiful Home in an Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a week in this rental home and it was the perfect place for two stressed out business owners to relax and unwind. The home is located above one of the "arms" of Lake Shasta so the view of the water surrounded by forest is beautiful. And due to its remote location it was completely quiet and peaceful which was just what we wanted. To add to that, the owner has found a true gem in Lori who was available to cook our meals most nights. The food was delivered hot at the time requested and was so good we both joked about wanting to hire Lori away from Ken so that we could eat like that every day! The only down side was the Jacuzzi conking out 3 days into our stay. We don't have one at home and always book places with them so that we can soak away as much stress as possible every day of the trip. If that hadn't happened, it would have been 5 stars. But aside from the spa, we had a great time, enjoyed the property and the hospitality and will be back again.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Had such an amazing time staying in Dreamview. The numerous glass windows make it so you can see the stunning view anytime, whether you're sitting at the table drinking coffee or watching the sunrise while you're still in bed. My favorite part of the stay was sitting on the deck in the morning, coffee in hand, looking at the beautiful Shasta lake, watching all the trees gently blowing in the light breeze and hearing nothing. It was incredibly peaceful. Would highly recommend this stay to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing, or fun retreat.

Sanity Restored

  • 5 of 5

The stresses of the season are overwhelming but within 3 hours of being in the nurturing and peaceful environment of Dream View, I felt like a new woman. The decks face due south, so even though the temperatures were normal for winter, we sat in t-shirts and bare feet on the deck, enjoying the awesome views.

The Christmas decorations were beautiful. Ken is an incredible host, making sure all your needs are taken care of. The sunrises were out of this world, sunsets were glorious but the peacefulness is truly outstanding.

Two days and we are fully re-stored, sane people again. I will be back with my girlfriends for a girls weekend, I will be back with my aging parents and I will be back with family. Most of all, I will be back for more romantic weekends with husband.

I noticed that Christmas isn't booked yet! Better grab it while you can people!

Beautiful setting with accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5

Dreamview is a very nice home with incredible views. My family enjoyed the serenity and peace that Dreamview offers its guests. Kenneth and Laurie were very gracious and were there at moments notice to accommodate any of our needs. Dreamview is well stocked with anything one might need or want and the tranquil environment allowed our family to spend quality time together. We made some great memories at this wonderful house!

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

  • 5 of 5

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!
