Mount Shasta Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

Stay at Mount Shasta City

  • 5 of 5

The stay was perfect. The hosts could not have been kinder. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay and escape from it all, this is the place.

I want to thank our hosts again most sincerely.

This was the 4th year in a row my friend and I enjoyed the Garden Loft of Sandy and John in

Mt Shasta. We have stayed longer each year....... Because we hate to leave the comfort and beauty of it all. Can't say enough about waking to the sound of chirping birds instead of a neighbors barking dog....and the sounds of cars in the city. We held our breath and watched as deer passed by the deck. From the deck we could view Mt Shasta with its streaks of snow

as we played cards or ate our meals. We found the electric BBQ on the deck handy for

preparing grilled salmon and veggies....dinners devine.

We are making plans for a longer stay in 2017 as our home away from home....where we will once again enjoy the Garden Loft and the hospitality of John and Sandy..

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending six days here and not only is the guesthouse convenient and comfortable, but you can really tell that John and Sandy put so much thought into every little detail which gives everything such a wonderful and personal touch. My husband and I were traveling with our 8 month old, as well as my mom and nanny, and there was adequate room for everyone. For those traveling with young children, there is a very large closet/storage room which was perfect for the baby's crib. Since there is no separate bedroom, we were concerned about the baby being disturbed by noise when she slept, but the closet worked out great.

The location couldn't be better and John and Sandy had so many great recommendations and were so friendly and happy to answer any question we had. It was hands down the best experience we had with any vacation rental and we will definitely be coming back!

Quiet, comfortable, close to town, yet in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

The guesthouse seems to be newly renovated with beautiful hardwood floors, oak moldings and plenty of room for

two people. The bed area is not completely separate from the living room and kitchen, but was fine for us. There is a nice deck overlooking the property and a carport for our car. It was only a 15 minute walk to town. Sandi and John answered all of our questions and were helpful but gave us privacy. They live in the main house in front of the guesthouse.

We enjoyed every minute and will return next time we want to go to Mt. Shasta.

Ultimate Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a romantic getaway or just a perfect place to come back to in the evening after enjoying all the Mt. Shasta area has to offer year 'round, this is truly the exceptional place. Beautiful, comfortable, gorgeous views, and the hosts, John and Sandy, are over the top wonderful. This was our second time staying in the loft and it won't be the last! Perfectly located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood just off the main drag, the loft is our favorite destination when in Mt. Shasta. Thanks again to John and Sandy for their over-the-top hospitality during our stay.

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.
