About Ruth Altes

We moved to the beautiful and special area here in Mt. Shasta full time about 2 years ago from Sonoma County. We have been travelling to this area for the past 7 years when we purchased the chalet for our use as a vacation home. We knew the area was special and was the place we wanted to raise our two young boys so we built a new house and opened up our wonderful chalet for others to enjoy.

Ruth Altes purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Ruth Altes chose Shasta Cascade

This house is situated on the side of the mountain that we love. We love the landscape and the weather on this side of the mountain, it is typically cooler in the summer and we are fortunate to get our fair share of snow. We don't get the wind that the more western side of Mt. Shasta area gets and we typically get the same snow fall that the ski park enjoys at their base. We are not in the city, have few neighbors and have the mountain as our back yard. We ride our quads, snowmobiles, bikes, horses, and even hike right from the property. We are close enough to town and all of the lakes, streams and rivers that we also enjoy all of the water sports and fishing. We remodeled the house when we bought it in 2006, so it has unique features and has a great layout to accommodate many people.

What makes this chalet unique

Nearby enjoy a beautiful outdoor venue for your wedding or other special event: (weddings, corporate retreats, family reunion, BBQ, Birthday Parties, Spiritual Retreat, Yoga Retreat, Company parties, etc.) Located only 3 miles from the Chalet with plenty of parking and lots of great amenities to come. A spectacular view of Mt. Shasta along with surrounding mountains. Also available: overnight horse accommodations and horse camping and RV spots as well. Call 530-925-2608 for more information or to reserve your dates.

Great location and house

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly sized for our group of 13. We had 6 teenage boys with us so the basement den was awesome and became their hangout. There were nice touches such as a blazing fire in the fireplace when we walked in! It was very conveniently close to the ski park and to town. We would definitely come here again for future ski trips. For a house that sleeps 16 though, I felt that there could be a few more utensils. We seemed to run out quickly and the dishwasher wasn't working which meant we had to wash A LOT of dishes.

Owner's Response: Thanks you for the nice review and the suggestion about adding utensils, we will definitely do this. The dishwasher control board went out unfortunately during your stay but has since been repaired and works like a charm please come back again!

Snowboarding Dream

  • 5 of 5

Ruth's Altes chalet is the place to enjoy the snow, the warm fire, the well-equipped kitchen, and the cozy, comfortable beds after a long day on the slopes. As a group of snowboarders with teens, we were welcomed and felt supported by Ruth. She understands love of sport and love of fun and made sure everything was communicated well, and her correspondence was respectful and timely. The house is in great condition with lots of places to talk, play, or lounge. The well-stocked supply of seasoned fire wood was a real bonus for those who love a cozy fire and s'mores after dinner. The land is pretty and feels secluded and private, yet, it is really close to Mt. Shasta Snow Park-a real plus in the rush to get to the slopes for a full day of fun. Thanks for your hospitality, Ruth. We will be back. I am thinking summer would be a great time to visit, too.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd annual weekend trip with multiple families and lots of kids. The house fit us all perfectly and is clean and well-kept. The kitchen is well-stocked. We had no reason to even drive anywhere as the snow outside the house was perfect for sledding, snow ball fights, and snow-person making. We had a blast and will come back again.

Altes Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay. Big Cabin with lots of bedrooms and lots of privacy. Ruth even came in before we got there and opened up the cabin and made a fire for us.

Great place.

Chillin' at the chalet

  • 5 of 5

We held our annual family reunion at this lovely locale and everyone really enjoyed our accommodations. Ruth is the consummate host with timely responses and a supportive attitude. The wooded lot and the chalet's country charm complimented many good nearby eateries and some splendid mother nature.
