July 29, 2016: Very accommodating, well stocked, Excellent location, Nicest rental we ever stayed in.
Great water all day! Amazing views from both decks. Great family vacation Spacious living quarters. Lots of parking, 5 min drive to store/gas in Lakehead. Owners are great, very accommodating and helpful. First time at lake Shasta and we will definitely be back!

June 12, 2016: The house and location are the best on the lake.
We have stayed at Lake Shasta many times at different places, but I can say this is the best house and location we have found. The views from the deck are unbelievable and the house is amazing. We docked are boat at Sugarloaf and it is an easy walk from house. The response and hospitality from Lori was beyond our expectations, we will definitely be back.
Grace L. Apr 27, 2016
April 21, 2016: House was very nice with an awesome view.
Lori was a delight to work with, she was able to get us into her home in two days after our previous plans fell through. The home is on the water and we fished each day we were there. The home was in excellent condition and was very comfortable for us. We will definitely look at coming back in the summertime.

July 16, 216: Perfect Waterfront Cabin.
The Lake Shasta Retreat was ideal for our family. We just got back home and had a wonderful time at the cabin. The care that was put in the cabin was very apparent. The Raun family has done an excellent job with communicating how everything works works in the cabin, and creating the perfect retreat. We will be back for sure!

Aug 23, 2016: Wonderful place to unwind, with a great view and a beautiful house.
The home we rented was just as listed, no surprises. Beautiful house, plenty of room, very well furnished. You will be very pleased. Pre-arrival Information provided was comprehensive. We were very comfortable. You will have everything you need, as the house is fully furnished with dishes, linens, washers, dryers, coffee makers, automated night lights, perimeter automated eater sprinklers, hot tub, very effective heat pump ("swamp") cooler. The downstairs den is very comfortable for late evening get togethers. The stairs between floors is steep and narrow; we had to barricade it with a chair to protect our 2 year old granddaughter. No problem, just be aware. The back decks are great, and we spent a huge amount of time on the top deck relaxing, enjoying the ambience and the view. BBQ grill on that deck works great (propane, electronic ignite - easy to use). We didn't travel around for entertainment - except for day trip to Dunsmuir - fun. The Sugarloaf Marina just below house is where we kept our boat. The ramp was marginal for our end of August visit, but boat ramp by freeway - 3 miles from house - is 1st class. This part of Lake Shasta is more like very wide rivers, great skiing water. You're about 12 miles by boat from larger South end of the lake. The lake area by the house has many quiet inlets to anchor boat and swim. Car/boat turnaround at end of street is tight but doable; plenty of room to park out front. We brought our own food, and didn't seek outside entertainment. The grocery store back by the freeway will have anything you may have forgotten. All contract financial transactions were simple, timely. They have Wifi, and a couple questions I had during visit were answered promptly. This is a 1st class $$$ (summer) place I would recommend to friends and family. Worth every penny.

August 10, 2016: A relaxing stay at the lake.
From beginning to end, Lori was very attentive to our rental experience. She was extremely prompt, friendly and courteous with any questions or concerns we had before our arrival (and a few after.) When we arrived, the lake house exceeded our expectations. It was homey, beautiful, extremely clean, and of course had a fabulous view of the lake. The Lake House has all the amenities one could want for a lake vacation. Lori adds a lot of personal touches that make you feel really welcome. We spent a 14 hour drive getting there from Southern Nevada, and the drive was well worth it! We had such a great time enjoying the beautiful lake - the first day on the lake we put over 110 miles on our boat exploring all the arms of Lake Shasta. Great water skiing in the morning! We also liked the fact that Redding is not far away so we can do any necessary shopping or enjoy a dinner out. We had such a great time and restful vacation at the Lake house that we are looking forward to more trips to Lake Shasta in summers to come! Thank you Lori for your wonderful hospitality and allowing us to share your Lakeshore Retreat!

July 10, 216: Lake Shasta Retreat.
Our family really enjoyed our stay at this house. The lake was down about 30 feet during our stay and the views from the back deck were amazing. It was hard to get up and get motivated as we felt so comfortable at the house with the great views of the lake. We moored our boat at the Sugarloaf Marina for $25/day which was worth every penny as we were able to see the glassy water from the deck and make the short walk to the marina to grab the boat and make a ski run. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We will definitely be back.
Blair D. May 5, 2016
May 1, 2016: Newly updated and very comforable home with fantastic view of the lake.
Excellent place to get away from it all! A nice quiet retreat at lakeside with stunning views. There are lots of amenities and things to do there, or you can just kick back and totally relax like we did. We spent 3 days there and would like to go back for a longer stay. It's a nicely updated property with everything you would want to have for a great get away.
Jarrett T. May 4, 2016
April 29, 2016: Very peaceful and relaxing.
My wife and I and our 2 kids had a great time at this home. We found that this vacation rental had all of the amenities and comfort of being at home but with the huge Lakeview and the peace and Tranquility to go along with it. My only complaint is that the weekend went by too fast. Next time I'm going to want to book at least 4 or 5 days

David H. 9/1/15 Jun 17, 2015 Gorgeous and quiet place to relax! Date of Stay Our stay could not have been more perfect!!! A hideaway nestled on a hilltop with a view that brings peace and quiet to your soul. The sunlit kitchen and living room with those gorgeous windows and lake views were truly amazing. Having our coffee and breakfast out on the deck each morning while watching a deer and listening to the birds was just what we were looking for. The house had everything you would need, wonderfully organized, stayed cool inside, and very clean. All the information provided to us in making the booking and making the most out of our stay was just as good an experience. I would definitely recommend this home and we look forward to returning in the future. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Adventure Seekers, Romantic Getaway

We had an absolute blast! It was exactly as pictured and very clean which we appreciated. Chere' was wonderful to deal with and always very prompt in answering any questions we had. We took our kids and grandkids and had a great time renting a patio boat (Marina couldn't be any closer) and enjoying the view on the deck. Thanks for providing the source of many happy memories!
Charlie & family 4/26/15
Wonderful house with great view!
This experience was one of our family’s best vacations. The house had everything we needed, except our food. We really enjoyed the large wrap around decks and the hot tub!! So peaceful and close to everything. We'll be back!!
Lovely, extremely relaxing time at the lake house retreat!
Kitchen is spacious and well stocked, we cooked in both nights! Beds were very comfortable, and though the lake is very low, the view from the deck is still beautiful. Perfect for a peaceful getaway in nature!
Betty9/9/13 The lake house was perfect for our Labor Day getaway. View from the patio and dining area is fabulous. The place was clean and fully furnished with everything we needed. Great to have the A/C to cool everything down. Would come back again!
Jim T 8/30/13
We had a great week at the house/lake!
Weather was perfect for wakeboarding and tubing. The house was perfect and right on the water. We only had to go around the corner for the boat ramp so that was even better! The family can't wait to go again next year! Thank you again for a fun week!
Barb Cardinale 7/30/13
Just returned from a wonderful trip to Shasta Lake
where we spent most of our time in our boat on the lake. The house was perfect as it was so close to the public boat launch and easy to go back and forth. The house had a great layout as we had 3 teenagers with us and they were able to take over the lower half of the house. My husband and I slept on the main floor. We were all very comfortable. Already planning next year’s trip to Shasta!
Had a wonderful weekend with friends
at the Shasta lakeshore retreat. House was very clean, spacious and the deck view of the lake was beautiful. Great place if you’re looking for a summer getaway. From:Bay Area
What a great house and location.
Everything was as advertised. WONDERFUL VIEWS of the lake!! Chere' was so helpful, and everything was handled quickly & easily. We'll be back!!
Tito L.Velasco, Sr. 7/19/12 Had a great time. Very comfortable and clean. Super view of the lake. From:King City, California
Kelly A 7/4/12 We had a great time at the lake house. The proximity to the Sugarloaf Marina and fueling the boat at Antlers was a plus. The house was comfortable and accommodating, and it was great to drink our coffee every morning on the deck as the sun heated up. Thanks for everything!
J. Terry Babler 6/16/11 Always nice to have some input from someone that has experienced this cabin. Our stay was the first week of June, 2011. Four senior adults found it to be very clean and furnished as advertised. Great view from a large deck very close to the water and marina. Owner had taken extra care to provide everything we needed. I recommend this to anyone looking for that special place to take family and friends. J. T. Babler
Suzanne Rosenau 9/15/10 I can honestly say that the Lakeshore Retreat is the perfect accommodation while visiting Lake Shasta, especially if you have a boat. The marina is within easy walking distance and it's only $25/night to rent a slip! I loved the large deck with a beautiful view of the lake. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans and the big BBQ on the deck is great! The beds were really comfortable and we slept soundly, it was so peaceful. We'll definitely return next summer.
Bob n Dauline Farlow8/25/10 This house was Home for us for a week, Home it was... Very peaceful, very beautiful, the deck was awesome looking over the lake and the marina where we had our boats. Sure miss our morning coffee there. With a party of 9 people, it was spacious, plenty of room, very clean, supplied nicely, everyone loved it Chere' was very gracious to work with, Thanks Chere' "Our Vacation of a life time" Thanks again. Already picking our dates for the next trip...
Collene Hawes8/4/10 Such a lovely and comfortable retreat for our 11 family member reunion. The location was great, a quick walk to launch and play in the gorgeous lake and even a view of our boat in the marina from the huge deck that the dogs loved. Our first time on Lake Shasta and would recommend it to anyone. WE caught fish (tasty pan sized), wake/knee boarded, canoed (with eagles and an osprey nest with babies!), and rented a party boat for a day to explore many coves! Owner was warm, friendly, very customer focused and reasonable about everything. We'll book early next year to have more time!
Sujata 9/9/09 It was a wonderful home for 3 families. Kids enjoyed playing on deck, watching deer’s. Superb location and a beautiful space with amazing views of the lake. It was very relaxing. Owner was very nice & cooperative to allow us early check in. Kitchen was also well equipped. We had the best time and definitely will return. I cannot imagine doing the hotel option ever again. Thank you for the warm hospitality
PA Deming9/8/09 Positive Awesome owner, very accommodating. We loved the home and it was very welcoming. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to rent close to the lake. There were deer walking in and around the property every night. It was a great location to the lake and it felt like home after a long day of boating. There is also a great family owned eating place close by and a grocery store too! The owner is the best!!!!! Anonymous, foster city, ca
Jeff 7/28/09 Thank you for the use of your property. We had a great time and the accommodations were wonderful. The house was nicely furnished and supplied, we never felt as if anything was missing. The covered deck was an awesome feature. It’s close to the water and marina, yet quiet throughout the day. You’re surrounded by nature which is a lovely bonus. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and look forward to using it again.

Enjoyed the amazing view of the lake. We truly enjoyed our stay here! Having A/C and being so close to the lake on hot days like this is absolutely wonderful. The decks are the perfect place for hanging out at night.
San Ramon, CA
Its quite cozy and comfortable. The nights are quiet are peaceful and quiet. The hot tub is soothing and relaxing but the outdoor shower is so refreshing on these hot days. We miss the lake being higher. Spent time in wonderful kitchen.
Sally, Robert, California
We had a fantastic time, the place is great. The view was beautiful!! We loved the deck.
Nat, Kate, Tahoe City
We had a great time at your cabin. Hate that we had to leave. It did not take me long to fall into the coffee on the deck routine in the morning. Nothing better! Skiing was fantastic and this year we rented a jet ski at the marina.
Tanya, Bill, Santa Clara
This is our 3rd year and we can't tell you how much we love it here. We keep coming back. It is a fantastic getaway to nature and a great way for our families to reconnect.
Chris, Kathy, Yorba Linda
Our third year. Thanks for implementing some of the changes we requested in past years and for reading our comments. We had a blast.
Amy, Doug, San Jose
This is our first visit to your house but won't be the last. We come up every year. This is our 22nd Summer visit. Great house and wonderful time with family.
Bob, Christy, Petaluma, CA
We are back again and we will be back next year. One week is just not long enough. Its a wonderful cabin and lake. We had a blast.
Karen, Woodland Hills, CA
We had a great time and the warm temperature was perfect and not too hot. We enjoyed seeing "our friends" (the deer family). The view, BBQ, water and spa are awesome. I am glad I found your website. Your house is better than any houseboat and a lot less money. We will be back next year.
Randy, Nancy, Temecula, CA
We are back. This is our second year. I enjoyed coffee once again on the deck. This is paradise to me. It got pretty hot but still beautiful. We got light rain one evening which made everything smell terrific. Three deer come by everyday and stop to see if I have any fresh fruit for them. I am convinced I will retire up here.
Rob, Rhonda, Huntington Beach
The houseboats are great but we had a blast here at your wonderful home. Just the view alone is awesome. Thanks.
Kim & Bob, Reno
This cabin is one of the nicest and biggest around. The guys at the marina were very helpful. We loved being able to sleep into 11am and the water still smooth for wakeboarding. We loved the deer, especially the mom deer wither two babies. This lake is better than Havasu, Mead, Mojave, Nacemiento and Powell!! The balconies are a great place to eat for all 10 of us. Hopefully we can stay two weeks next year.
This lake house was so fun for me and my family! and I hope other people
have as much fun as we all did!! I love the location and view of your lake house. We easily walked to the marina and picked up our jetski to go out on the lake. At night we caught several bass. My six year old caught her first fish. We saw several deer from deck walk by the house.
Jon, Sacramento, CA
We have stayed at many places on Shasta. There is only one for us now. We love the two big decks with views of the Lake, Marina and Mountains. Since the place is down in the trees and closer to the water, it is much cooler than many places in Lakehead. We rent a slip at Sugarloaf/(now occupied by Antlers) for $20 a night and come and go. With lake low, little bit of a walk or very short ride in car. Water is low...but plenty of great water for miles and miles. We also used our ATVs on the endless back dirt roads. You can cruise from the property in your ATV to get access...no trailers needed. Would like bigger TVs and Internet. Highly recommend. Owners Response: Sept 2015: Thank you for your message. A 40" and a 50" HD Flat screen were added in early September as well as Internet. We also added a 2nd shower in Dec 2015. Other upgrades later.

Foster City, CA
My husband and three kids stayed there for our annual summer Shasta trip. Walking distance to Sugarloaf if you bring your boat, the house had everything we needed (Including A/C) and beautiful views. There were deer everywhere which added to the entertainment. The house was clean and well stocked. Would definitely go back again there next summer Recommended for: Families with young children, Sightseeing, Adventure seekers, Families with teenagers. Message from Owners: Thanks for message. Remodeled Interior since your stay.
Erika, Can Jose, CA
Nice place: easy access to lake; kitchen supplies ok..quiet neighborhood: I loved the outdoor shower with the hot weather we had: Shasta can be very hot in mid summer; We had 100' + every day but house was nice and cool with the use of swamp cooler. No wi-fi; very limited cell service: peaceful surrounding. Recommended for: Families with young children, Adventure seekers. Message from Owners: We NOW HAVE INTERNET! Internet was added in early Sept 2015 along with two HD flat screen TVs to enjoy. ATT cell phones now work great also with new ATT MicroCell. In December 2015 we added a 2nd shower.
L67.Morgan Hill, Ca
Good location, quite place. Large deck, two decks in fact. Stunning view to the lake and moon-rise. All as advertised. There is not much of a backyard, but one can walk over gravel and debris right to the lake. Beds are very tall, first night I was really trying not to fell off while tossing at sleep :-) Recommended for: Families with young children. Message from Owners: Sept 2015: The path to the water's edge (when lake is full) has been restored. It is a series of steps. Two of the beds are 1-2 inches higher than normal with the high end mattress...but they are sure comfortable. The two twins and the pull out beds are lower.
Northen Guest, Santa Clara, CA
We really enjoyed our vacation in this house. We were able to visit the Bridge, dam, caverns and with a little more driving (88 miles to be exact) we visit the Burney Falls... So worth it. We were also able to take the kids to Brandy Oak beach close by, very nice place to swim. It was nice to come home to a quiet place, not to mention tidy and clean. In the morning it was nice to see few deer wonder around and a fam of woodpeckers. Would definitely stay in your place again. Thanks so much for renting it to us. Recommended for: Families with young children, Adventure seekers, Families with teenagers
Yadira, Southern California
We had an awesome time in this awesome house, just the two of us for 5 days and 4 nights. The water level of the lake was lower that it has been we were told, and it was a bit of a hike to get to the water, but it wasn't a hard hike, it was a nice workout! We fished every evening from the banks and saw deer all day passing through the property. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor shower, and it was pretty much the only thing we used on the ground floor. The house was very comfortable, had all we needed and more; peace and quiet. We can't wait to return with our kayaks! Thanks to Marcia and the owners for welcoming us to the home! Recommended for: Sightseeing, Girls getaway, Adventure seekers, Romantic getaway, Families with teenager
Vicki, Petaluma, CA
We have stayed at Lake Shasta on several occasions at other properties, but this was by far the best. The house had everything we needed, the location was perfect as it is just a short distance to the lake and the view was beautiful. We will definitely be back next year.
We stayed 3 nights over Labor Day weekend and enjoyed the house. Everything was in working order. The swamp cooler was very efficient in cooling the house down after spending a warm day on the lake. View from the dining area is fabulous and the patio is wonderful to sit on and enjoy the view. We had all the amenities of home. Only downside was there is only one shower for everyone to use. Would recommend this rental. Recommended for: Families with young children, Girls getaway, Age 55+, Families with teenagers. Message from Owner: Two large HD flat screens and Internet added in early Sept 2015. 2nd shower was added Dec 2015. The place will then have two full baths plus the famous outdoor shower as a 3rd.
Betty, Palo Alto, CA
We stayed 5 days and 4 nights. The view is AMAZING! The large deck was a perfect place to sit and relax. The lake is very low this year so walking to the lake wasn't an option with children. But the view cannot be beat! Recommended for: Sightseeing, Adventure seekers, Age 55+, Romantic getaway. Owner response: Thank you for your response. I'm sorry for longer than normal walk and lower water level. The drought has made the walk longer than normal. Fortunately we still have the view and the marina is the closest of all the rentals. I wish we could control that, but unfortunately it's out of our hands. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. Let's hope for rain :)
