Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

Peaceful Lakeside Home on 6 acres. This is the place you are looking for--once you come, no other rental will do. Hammond pond is a seasonal private lake that no motorized boats are allowed on. Watch the wild geese raise their young or the deer graze in the meadow.

Our home has a fully stocked Granite kitchen, Tempurpedic mattress in master, and stone fireplace (gas). This place has it all--views, trees, meadows, wildlife, walking trails (dirt road), seasonal lake for kayaking or canoes. Quaint newer home with incredible charm--gas BBQ, covered porch.

Hammond pond is a seasonal 70 acre lake that attracts wildlife and local fishermen. Nestled between Mount Shasta and Black Butte to the east and the 'Eddys' to the west, abundant day hike opportunities exist. If you are not up to climbing the 14,000 ft Mount Shasta, the Pacific Crest Trail offers many easier day hikes--one of my favorites is from the top of Stewart Springs road to Deadfall Lakes--an easy, relatively flat 4 mile (one way), spectacularly beautiful hike. The 'Park's Creek' trailhead is about 30 minutes from the house.

Another gem is the McCloud Falls trail--make sure you don't miss the Middle Falls! McCloud is about 15 miles east of Mt Shasta City on Highway 89. The Falls are a few miles east of McCloud at the 'Fowler's' turnoff.

There is also a maze of dirt roads to explore that connect the homes and properties of 'Hammond Ranch'. Besides the Lake, many creeks flow through the Ranch--the Shasta River (just a stream at this point), Dale Creek and Eddy Creek. Following Dale Creek road past the house to Dale Creek, crossing Dale Creek (you have to wade) and then on to Eddy Creek offers a wonderful 8 mile round trip. Hike or mountain bike along a minimally travelled, relatively flat, bumpy dirt road. Wildflowers abound and the road winds along a hillside that offers dramatic views of Mount Shasta and the valley. You may take quads along the roads--but please observe the 15 mph speed limit on the private roads.

Whether you use our home as a base camp or a place to unwind, you will find that you don't want to leave the spell that it casts over you. When I have guests the most common thing I hear in the morning is 'How do you leave this place to go to work?' This is not just a place to stay--it is a destination!

About Sylvia

We built this home in 1994 after purchasing the property in 1992.

Sylvia purchased this house in 1994

Why Sylvia chose Shasta Cascade

Once you come you will know why this property was the one we would never let go of. He always loved flat land and I always loved views...the minute we walked onto this land, we knew we were staying.

What makes this house unique

We designed this home to take full advantage of the views of the lake while minimizing the road. Because this is a small home, we also did not want to waste space with hallways. Both bedrooms are mini-suites at opposite ends of the house. The guest bedroom has its bath just steps from the door. This bath is the main bath for the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome to our home. We hope you enjoy your visit as much as we have enjoyed living beside the lake. Please return to the guestbook after your stay to let others know what a wonderful time you had at our magical and peaceful stone cottage.

This is a beautiful home in an unique setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sylvia and will plan to return when we visit family in Mt Shasta. We found the kitchen fabulous, the house very comfortable despite a wide variety of outside temperatures. Sleeping was fabulous, wonderful beds and lots of quiet. Beautiful detail in the abundant granite in the house.Go a walk along the pond to enjoy the bird life!

Confortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights on the stone cottage in late September. There was no water in the lake, but saw deers and a lot of birds. The cottage has well equipped kitchen and furniture. Bed was really confortable. Unfortunately, Shasta can't be seen from inside of the house. But other than this, I strongly recommend to stay here. I would like to come back in spring again.

A restful oasis in a beautiful natural setting

  • 5 of 5

Five stars are not enough to express the gratitude we have for our stay in Sylvia's Stone Cottage. It is beautifully built, decorated and furnished, and every aspect is comfortable. The beds and bathrooms are luxurious, and the kitchen is fit for a chef. The views of the lake through the large picture windows and on the porch offer deep contentment. Everything is in great working order and immaculately clean. This is a restful oasis and the perfect place to return to after a day of adventuring in the Shasta area. Best of all is Sylvia, who went way beyond the call of duty to be generous and thoughtful. Stay here if you can, we are already planning our return! Thanks again Sylvia!

magical nature

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge on Hammond Pond is beautiful and comfortable. We were thrilled by the nature show from the deck: deer, rabbits, owls, geese, ducks, cranes, bats, frogs.... An early morning canoe ride on the lake revealed even more!

RESET YOUR INNER CORE

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Being so close to nature with deer, geese, baby frogs

and lizards, and fish, etc. was "amazing" as my grandchildren would say. We brought our grandchildren's kayaks and they had so much fun using them on the lake!

Sylvia also had a canoe for us to use and we did including our dog, Bella. This place is certainly children and dog friendly, too!

Very quiet and peaceful and so relaxing for us grownups.

We visited the town of Weed and toured the Museum which was very interesting; and one of the children's playgrounds in a park, and Ray's Supermarket, which has a little bit of everything you could want.

The only suggestions we have are:

new sponges for the kitchen sink for use,

screens for the doors,

asphalt for the road in front of the house to cut down on the dust from the

cars coming and going in front of the house,

and instructions on how to access the satellite TV and the fan on the stove.

We stayed from Aug. 11-14, 2017. Thanks for letting us rent your lovely home!!
