About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

What we can offer our guests is close proximity to the town of Mt. Shasta and a very private, quiet setting. We are about .9 miles to town but live in the forest. Guests have killer views out of each window and a private deck for relaxation.

The loft has about 800 sq. ft. and the living room, dining room, bedroom and kitchen are all open with no walls between them. Guests have their own private carport to keep from the snow and sun.

There is a full kitchen with all conveniences except a dishwasher.

There is a queen size bed and a high quality pull out sofa-bed. Our space can accommodate 4 people.

We are pet-dander free and this is the reason we do not allow pets. Read our reviews and you will be convinced that the Garden Loft is the place for you.

We have two mountain bikes to borrow as well as two pairs of snowshoes. We have snow sleds and luges as well.

About The Owner

Sandy and I moved here 34 years ago from the Bay Area because of our love of backpacking. No Regrets! We raised our family here. Both Sandy and I are retired teachers. Sandy elem. school and me, high school. We love outdoor activities as well as jewelry making, playing piano, gardening, knitting, swimming,exercising, hiking, wood working and sailing.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1977

Why The Owner chose Shasta Cascade

The garden loft is a great get-a-way from the hustle and bustle of one's home. Guests have called our garden loft serene with a special feeling of calmness. One is in the forest yet only a short hike to the downtown area.

What makes this cottage unique

Our visitors will enjoy the privacy and solitude as well as the close proximity to town, skiing, and many other outdoor activities that Mt. Shasta is known for. Park in the carport that is steps from the front door of the loft. Enjoy the 1 acre of flowers during the Spring, Summer and Fall. How about a two person shower with two shower heads!! Total relaxation awaits you here.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Every so often you come across people or places you know will stay in your hearts forever. Our stay at the Garden Loft gave us both people and a place of that caliber. The loft is absolutely perfect. We were "at home" as soon as we arrived. Everything we needed was provided, including a lovely bottle of wine in celebration of my husband's birthday. The kitchen is complete and there is even some room left over to store food items, the linens are scrumptious, everything is immaculate, the t.v./vcr are very user friendly and there are binders full of all sorts of information. Because of the way the bed faces, we woke up each morning looking at tall pines. The other windows have glorious views of either the lush garden and/or Mount Shasta. And then we started to notice all the detail that has been built into the loft, things that maximize the space or simply add class and interest. And we can't forget Sandy and John Hansen, our hosts. Amazingly hospitable and friendly people. It all blended into a wonder-filled adventure we will never forget and hope to repeat often.

Very cozy, comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the garden loft was everything we were looking for and more... The loft is very comfortable, warm and cozy. The kitchen is very well stocked with every thing one needs. The couch and arm chair are very comfy in the sitting area. It's private, quiet and detached from the main house with its own separate carport. We really enjoyed our stay... one of the best vrbo places we have rented. Thank you John and Sue for your warm, kind hospitality.

Beautiful loft, with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

John & Sandy have really gone above & beyond to pay attention to every detail! We very much enjoyed our stay while exploring the town of Mt Shast. The room includes local art, local information for reastraunts and hiking. I would highly recommend this location for your stay as the peace & quiet combined with being one with nature really recharges the battery.

Quiet and lovely garden retreat

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed staying in this spacious loft apartment hosted by John and Sandy. What wonderful and gracious hosts they are! My husband and I are avid gardeners, and we enjoyed our personal tour of the greenhouse and the cold frames that John had built. Even though we visited in early spring, I can imagine that the summer gardens here must be spectacular! Also, there is a view from the rocking chair in the living room of the peak of Mount Shasta. What a stunning mountain! We will be back to visit again.😃

Cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our winter Mt Shasta vacation at the garden loft. Our family of four spent three comfortable winter nights here. The kitchen was well-appointed and we cooked most of our meals there. We enjoyed the semi-rural location while being close to town (an easy walk in some seasons). We also appreciated being able to use the owner's sleds and snowshoes. The owner's were very helpful and kind while respecting our privacy.

Another Wonderful Stay in your Garden Loft

  • 5 of 5

John and Sandy, Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality these past few days. As usual,(I think that this is our third stay with you) we were most comfortable in your Garden Loft while we enjoyed time with our Mt. Shasta Family. Have a wonderful Holiday Season. We look forward to staying with you when our travels bring us back to Northern California.

Sandy and I propagate Shasta Lilies and we probably have the largest concentration (no. per acre) of Shasta Lilies in California and Oregon. When they bloom the fragrance rivals any flower from Hawaii. One bloom in a room will permeate an entire home.
