We recently stayed at The Gilden Lodge for a family occasion. This property is the most wonderful, well appointed house in the Mt. Shasta area. It has four distinct bedrooms which accommodated our complete family. All the adults and the children had a fantastic time, as the lodge made our vacation a complete success. We had a fantastic time sharing this beautiful space and enjoying the hospitality of Suzi the owner. Suzi made us as comfortable as possible, we felt like family. We highly recommend The Gilden Lodge if anyone wants to have an extraordinary vacation in the most wonderful setting; this is the place to be. Thank you Suzi.

Amazing memories I will never forget.

  • 5 of 5

I couldn’t recommend staying at this cabin more, our experience was outstanding. It has all the basic kitchen ware you would need to cook elaborate meals at home. There are several grocery stores just down the road to stock up on food. The property feels very isolated and private, which is what I wanted for my wife and I.

We ate all our evening meals outside because of the perfect temperature and view of the mountain.

The media room was used everyday by us and we loved the surround sound and theater lighting in there.

If all of that wasn’t enough to recommend it, Suzi the owner, is very responsive to emails, text and phone calls. I would have been perfectly fine with a response time of 48 hrs, but she would email/text/call within an hour. Made us feel well taken care of.

This is a perfect stay for a intimate get away or a small family reunion. This cabin was what made us want to come to Mt. Shasta in the first place.

We had our quilting retreat at Gilden Losge again this year and it was lovely. The location is so gorgeous and space is perfect for a large group. Suzi makes sure everything is ready to go when we arrive.
