From the Redding Record Searchlight Newspaper
Former UCLA superstar Brian Theriot and his wife, Melissa Crow, own and operate the property. Brian grew up in Castella and used Castella Loop as his private training ground. He knew everyone in the community as did his parents and grandparents (Castella residents) Jim and Hazel Hobbs before him.He was good friends with Mike Padula, owner of Mike's Place bar, the most popular bar in town. When the trains pulled into Castella, they stopped right in front of Mike's. The offloading passengers usually headed straight for Mike's Bar. This story is based on the eyewitness accounts of Castella residents George Costas, a silver miner; Swede, an old fisherman; and Mike Padula, owner of the bar. All three stated the meeting of President John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe took place at Castella in 1962. All three witnesses have since passed away, however, they told others who still remember every detail of the story. One of those told was Brian Theriot, current owner of the cottages. He was told when he was a young boy. He is now 54. Brian purchased the cottages from a friend in 2003. Since then he has spent time at the cabins cleaning and primping whenever he can get away from his home and business in Southern California. During one of his stays at the cabins, he found two hidden photos of Marilyn Monroe inside Cabin #5, a storage cabin. Brian was able to determine from the background of the photos that they were both taken outside the stone cottages that date back to the early 1900s. The following information was provided by Brian. George Costas, Swede, and Mike Padula all agreed the meeting between Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe took place in 1962. No one knew how Marilyn traveled to Castella. The first place she was seen was in Mike Padula's bar, where she sat and chatted with Mike for at least three hours. She was alone. Mike Padula had a note saying 'M car here at noon for you and J.' According to Mike, three hours after Marilyn arrived, a big, black, shiny limousine with black windows pulled up outside. When Marilyn noticed the limousine, she immediately went out and climbed in. Mike saw President Kennedy inside the limousine. For the next two days, the limousine remained parked behind one of the stone cottages down the road from the old Engle Inn Resort — its name in 1962, where President Taft, an avid fly fisherman, was once a guest. Also, Brian said Marilyn signed her name in lipstick on the wall at Mike Padula's bar. That in itself wasn't unusual, because many other stars' signatures such as Mae West, Jimmy Dorsey, Lena Horn and Cary Grant graced the mirrors and the walls of Mike's Place bar. Brian states he saw her name on the wall when he was 13 years old while sitting at the bar with his Irish setter, father Richard Theriot, and grandfather Jim Hobbs. Castella was a hot playground area for movie stars from the 1930s forward to escape to. It was also a place where liquor flowed freely during Prohibition. Trainloads of people would arrive from all points south, get off the train and head for Mike's Place Bar across the road, and later to the many resorts and hotels in the area. The cabins are still there. The Engle Inn Resort main building is still there. The property no longer operates as a resort; only the cabins owned by Theriot are rented overnight or as vacation retreats. Mike Padula's bar no long exists nor do many of the hotel structures and stores that once dotted the loop such as Amos Johnson's Hotel and Store. And the train no longer stops at Castella.

If you want a place with history think about this our guest books and the history has JFK and Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, James Dean, Jimmy Dorsey. I stayed in the JFK and Marilyn Bedroom in cottage 3. My mother and father stayed in the Sinatra Rat Pack cottages 4 and 5. We hiked, fished, we ran hills. The local market is called ammiratti market. And we saw historic Dunsmuir. We went to the snow ten minutes away at Mt. Shasta.
All the cottages have directv. Wifi. The views are immense. Think about this. All the hiking. Fishing we caught a 22 inch trout. We are all catch and release.
If you look at the website www.castlestoneinn.net the owner site you can see what my kids just loved and that is the greatest outdoors adventure ever. We saw that John Wayne, Jimmy Dorsey, Ginger Rogers, Mamie VanDoren, Meryl Streep, Ashton Kutcher, Jimmy Stewart, Rober DeNiro, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Duvall all stayed here and signed the books. The owers are in the film business with the studios and that is why all the stars hide out. But the owner is a native of the area part time so he knows everyone and gave us tours.
We picked up our keys at the local property managers office. Professional and credit cards accepted. We returned the keys to the property manager. This is a professionally run but family style business. The small town where the cottages are located is called Castella. Only 100 people. The river is right out front.
We plan to come back in the summer. We love it here.
Love the Tuckers and Stevens Family
Being a big fan of Marilyn Monroe and passing thru Castella I wanted to stay in cabin number three. I booked and paid for this room a month in advance. The day before we were to arrive I receive a message from the manager stating we could no longer stay in cabin number three, and could either stay in cabin number 4 or give us a refund. I was disappointed and assumed that something was wrong with the room and it could not be rented out. When we arrived the next day to check in I asked the manager why we had to switch rooms. The manager stated the owners came to town and wanted cabin number 3. This made me so mad the the owners would treat their guests this way. Not only did they change our requested room but there were no other guests staying in the inn and had 4 other available cabins to stay in. I wasn't that upset that we had to switch rooms, but finding out the owners kicked us out for themselves pissed me off. The manager also said cabin number 4 had a king bed, which was actually a twin bed trundle. Cabin number 3 has a actual bed. Just thought I should pass this on that if you do decide to stay here you may not get what you ask for if the owners decide to come into town.
My wife and I stayed in cabin number 3. We fished, floated down the river, hiked, swam, and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.
Dunsmuir is only 10 minutes away. Mt. Shasta is only 20 minutes a way.
Fly fishing - caught over 10 rainbow trout fish. We used the guide service Red Hackle Guide Service. Ask for Brian.
Overall, we will be coming back.
I had a wonderful 5 day stay at Castle Stone the last week in January. I am always leery of friend recommendations being a bit over exaggerated, but when I arrived at the cabins I was overwhelmed in the most positive way ever. My wife and I stayed in Cottage 4 and were welcomed that afternoon with a fresh pot of hot coffee (and cocoa) and cakes once we stepped through the door. Perfect beverage and snack after a long drive from the San Fernando Valley. I have been to Big Bear several times, but the stay in the Mt. Shasta area was unlike any I had experienced. The furnishing were quaint and very comfortable and the wood burning stove made me feel like I had truly escaped civilization. Bacon and eggs never tasted so good. We skied as much as we could, but being able to take a daily hike makes me yearn for the spring and summer months when I can return and lace up my sneakers for some runs along the trails, finishing with a dip in the rivers and creeks once the temperatures are a little friendlier. If you want some quiet time, an extensive library is available where you can browse subjects that pique your interests from world events to the history of the area and other local folklore. Clean, cozy and picturesque is how I would describe the my experience. All in all, a perfect long weekend getaway. Believe me, I won't be a stranger any more.
We live in Southern California and my daughter attends the University of Oregon. Traditionally, when we head home after a visit with her, in an effort to break up the trip, we will usually stay somewhere in Weed. On a recent trip home from Eugene we decided to head a little farther South before stopping. Boy, are we glad we did! Nestled among the pines in the quaint little town of Castella, we stumbled upon the Castle Stone Cottage Inn. What a gem! The cutest little set of cabins you will ever find, we stayed in Cottage #2, known as "Padula's Lodge". It was clean, cozy and well appointed. The bed we slept in was very comfortable. Being in a mountain-type rural area, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was free wi-fi. We took a hike along the river, which is truly a "stones throw" from our bedroom, all the way to the famed, Duffy Falls. Our plan, the next time we stay, will be to hike up the Castle Crags area. That will be in the Summer, when we move our daughter back home. With Lake Shasta near by, this is a terrific place to stay, summer or winter.
My wife and I just wanted to get away for a days and when I was kid I use to come up to the area. Well she just fell in love with the area. Our room was clean, warm and actually looked just like the website. I hate going to chain hotels where everything is programmed to sell you something and pack you in with no place to park. We spent one day at Mt. Shasta skiing and then took a day off to just relax at our pace.
I plan on coming back late this summer to do some fishing and the wife can wait to come along to enjoy the hiking trails.
