Shingletown Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft Bedroom + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)


It's time to start making summer and fall plans for your getaway for 2016!

This wonderful mountain chalet is hidden away on a private country no thoroughfare road in the small community of Viola.This area is equally as pristine as Tahoe, without the crowds and high rates. There is easy access to the North Entrance of Mt Lassen Park from the cottage, just about 8 minutes and you're there. We are fortunate to have very few neighbors which are mostly summer cabins, you can rest assured that you will have privacy and this is NOT IN A SUBDIVISION. There are many miles of trails to explore, right out the front door. We keep our calender current daily and offer this cottage from Memorial Day through Oct 31st. We are now taking reservations for the upcoming 2016 season. This is our eighth season for rental and we would like to thank all of our visitors from around the world for making it possible for us to share the cottage.

This home is approximately 1850' total, newer construction (completed in the winter of 2007), 2 story, with 2 bedrooms downstairs and full bath with jacuzzi tub and shower, full kitchen (all new appliances and everything you will need to prepare any size meal) a, dining area and living room, plus 600' sleeping loft and den with 3 additional beds, quiet sitting area and 1/2 bath plus small deck with view of yard and the year round creek. So plenty of room to spread out. This is the perfect setup for 2 -10 guests.

There is also a large deck in front, back and side of cottage, a total of about 700 sq ft of decking which overlooks yards and creek., with a nice lawn out in the front yard.


Listed in Frommers Top Destinations to Visit - Lassen National Volcanic Park. Just under 4 hours from SF Bay Area and under 3 hours from Sacramento.

You will not be disappointed with this unique opportunity to stay at our mountain chalet.

There are many lakes, waterfalls and hiking trails very close by. Fishing is popular in this area with the The Famous Hat Creek just 20 minutes away. We have a year round creek in the back yard with small native trout and a fishing pond just down the lane. There is a campfire pit & small deck set up by the creek for family campfires and cooking.

Other things to do in the area close by would include: Wineries, Subway Caves, Burney Falls, Fall River Golf Resort, Mt. Shasta Ski & Board Park, Lake Britton, Sundial Bridge. If you prefer to stay close to the house, there is an entire Private Forest Land right out the front door for hiking, mountain biking, ATV riding etc. Expect to see wildlife such as squirrels, chipmunks, birds, and deer. A relaxing massage can be arranged by appointment. The sound of the creek will put you into a pleasant nights rest.

We are located at 4500' elevation with comfortable days and nights during the summer and fall. The snow comes usually in December and stays through March or April. The winter activities would include: snowmobiling, snowboarding, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, tubing.

Bring the family or just get away for a romantic adventure.

About Rebecca Moore

We are originally from the SF Bay Area. We came to this area as children, so many fond childhood memories were made here. We moved to Oregon for 20 years. We now have children & grandchildren in the SF Bay Area. We decided to move closer and this area was our number one choice. We live down the lane from our rental property so it has worked out well for us and our guests. We look forward to sharing our piece of heaven with you. Pura Vida, your hosts, Bob & Rebecca Moore

Nice, quiet place with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice place, and the dogs and I really enjoyed being able to walk across the street and walk for miles on the forest service roads. They also liked cooling off in the stream out back afterward. Thanks!

Perfect place for a get away.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is perfect and has everything you could want or need. We stayed here with our 5 kids and they had so much fun. The creek behind the property kept the kids entertained. The fire pit was perfect for campfire stories and snores. It was like having your own personal resort. We would stay here again.

cosy peaceful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute staying at Storybook Cottage. The cabin is clean and had everything we needed. it was cosy while at same time plenty spacious for our family of 5.

The soothing sound of the rushing creek was an unexpected bonus. Cool nights and sound of creek/river made for great sleeping.

Our only regret is we didn't book a longer stay.

Very nice home and close to Lassen National Park

  • 5 of 5

My family and I very much enjoyed our recent 3 day stay. The home was as described and pictured. We had everything we need to make our stay comfortable. The homemade bread, jam and butter was super nice- my kids loved it! We spent the morning hiking and exploring Lassen National Park and relaxed in the home in the afternoon. Only hitch was there was too many mosquitoes, so we couldn't enjoy being outdoors as much, but the kids still went down to the stream to try and fish and explored the area around the cabin. We would definitely stay here again!

Cozy creekside cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay when visiting Lassen National Park. Cottage has everything you need ... kitchen is well stocked with pantry items and condiments. Beds are comfortable and main bathroom is spacious. I use a small wheelchair and had no problem in this house (however I don't need ADA accommodations). Doors are standard width and there are no steps to access front door/porch/bedroom/bathroom. I loved being so close to Bailey Creek..beautiful to sit down there and enjoy the scenery. The house did get cold at night (even in the summer), but a space heater worked just fine (no central heat/AC). The house stayed cool during the day .... no AC needed! Internet didn't work and AT&T has no reception... not a big deal, just prepare to use the landline provided. We look forward to returning in the future!
