Shasta Cascade Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Nestled on 40 acres of paradise!

Enjoy all of the activity and adventure of the Mt. Shasta wilderness with all the comforts of home!

Our fully furnished luxury log home sleeps 9-14 in over 3,000 SQF of space. The property features 4 bedrooms, a loft, 3 baths and all the charm in the world!

We have recently added several miles of professionally engineered trail surface for our guests to enjoy. Choose from a relaxing 3-mile "out-and-back" hike to the top of our property, a 2.25 mile "loop" that offers a bit more of an aerobic challenge, or 1.7 mile circuit that can really get those legs burning! All three options reward hikers and bikers with an AMAZING view of Mt. Shasta!

After your hike or ride, take a nap in the oversized hammock on our spacious deck and wait for nightfall to go stargazing! Wildlife is plentiful in the area and becomes part of your extended family during your stay.

At night, leave the windows open and listen to the nearby gurgling brook!

If you simply can't go completely off-grid, we do offer high-speed internet access, along with complimentary long-distance and DISH television.

Located 4 hours north of San Francisco, and 4 hours south of Eugene, the property is a 15 minute drive from I-5 in the historic old mill town of McCloud, CA. This is an outdoor-lovers dream with so much so see and do nearby! Alternatively, you can settle in a get cozy with a great book by the fire. Whatever style of vacation you choose, Eagle's Rest is sure to provide a magical setting!

Within 10 miles (as the crow flies) of our front door you can:

Hike the Castle Crags;

Golf at Mt. Shasta Country Club or the McCloud GC;

Or you can forget all of that and just take a long soak in our Victorian style tub followed by a good book and a glass of wine in front of the wood burning stove!

The Eagle's Rest is our 2nd home and we are excited to share it with you. Come see the night sky like you haven't seen it before, enjoy the rugged outdoors, all with the comforts and amenities of your own home!

About Mt. Shasta Vacation Rentals

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! We purchased this property in 2012 as a future retirement home after falling in love with the town of McCloud and the entire Mt. Shasta area. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Mt. Shasta Vacation Rentals purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why Mt. Shasta Vacation Rentals chose Shasta Cascade

As a former military brat and current businessman who travels extensively for work, I have visited many unique and exciting locations. That said, nothing compares to this property when you're ready to 'get away from it all' and simply get back to a slower, more relaxed lifestyle.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Do as much or as little as you'd like during your stay. Whatever your ideal vacation might be: a long soak in our victorian style tub, reading a great book in the hammock or by the fire, gearing up to hike the Crags or climb Mt. Shasta, enjoying Lake McCloud or simply spending quality family time in the great outdoors, the Eagle's Rest offers all of that and more, directly at your doorstep!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Jeff, Great house. Wonderful for families. Great location. The beds are comfortable and sheets/towels are clean. Thanks for the fresh bread and chocolate--a nice treat. The directions provided from the management company were not specific enough. However once we found it, it's easy to find again and we definitely would like to come back soon. Are you available in the winter? Will definitely recommend your home to friends/family. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

Heavenly relaxation in nature

  • 5 of 5

Our family joined by another family and our dogs stayed in this beautiful home for an extended weekend and could not have enjoyed ourselves more! It was clean, well kept, spacious enough for two families and had all the extra's you might need. We can't wait to go back! The hiking trails were the icing on the cake. Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to share with others!

Cozy, cute, with Critters

  • 4 of 5

Overall impression was good. It was most certainly a secluded cabin. It was nice not to hear trains and traffic for the duration of our stay. With the seclusion came a long dirt road that makes it so. I never cursed a road so much in my life! The pot holes were absolutely horrendous. You had to be really attentive while driving this road so as not to break your neck or your suspension.

Back to the house. It was very clean and well stocked with all the essentials. The wi-fi, courtesy of satellite internet was actually pretty good speed wise. My sister saw a bear the first night... It was reassuring to know that they have a fence along the property line to keep the more adventurous bears at bay. Although the aforementioned road was not fun to drive on, it was great to walk the dogs on; we even saw a big 'ole turtle on the road. The 3rd day we had the pleasure of seeing 4 deer graze very close to the house, right near the basketball hoop.

One thing I have to mention is that my sister and her husband heard a mouse that was trapped in-between the logs in there bedroom throughout the duration of there stay. It was scraping and scratchin somewhere in the walls.

All in all it was a pleasant experience. The stargazing on the deck was also a nice treat.

peaceful weekend

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, even with a full house--it held us that well. Very comfortable and amply stocked. Beautiful setting in a peaceful meadow threaded by a gurgling stream.

Met friends for skiing and eating and games--everyone was happy. Easy to find, fine help in arranging reservation and tending to details. Would do it all over again in a heartbeat and recommend too...

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this cabin with our family. A quiet retreat in a winter wonderland. The cabin has all the modern conveniences in a rustic construction. The property allowed the kids to play in the snow and take a hike. We all enjoyed ourselves and will hopefully be back next winter!

I just got back from a weekend visit to The Eagle's Nest and it wasn't nearly long enough. My family held our Thanksgiving dinner here and it was PERFECT. The cabin is well equipped and it has so much charm. You can not help but relax while you're there. The trails were great, the views were amazing. You are close to town yet feel removed from it all. Coming from the Sacramento area, I forgot what stars look like. This cabin in magical! We are going to book the cabin again for next year!

I found Eagles Rest online and has always wanted to hike around Mt. Shasta - so it was a perfect match. The house is set in a little meadow with great views from the deck - and it is very well maintained. I hiked the newly built trails that the owners put in - great for an early morning hike, especially when you get to the top and have an unobstructed view of Mt. Shasta.

The next couple of days were spent on Mt. Shasta, Pacific Crest Trail, Burney Falls and around McCloud. All in all this was one of the best mixes of hiking, exploring, photography and generally relaxing that I have found.
