Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Mount Shasta

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

Peaceful Lakeside Home on 6 acres. This is the place you are looking for--once you come, no other rental will do. Hammond pond is a seasonal private lake that no motorized boats are allowed on. Watch the wild geese raise their young or the deer graze in the meadow.

Our home has a fully stocked Granite kitchen, Tempurpedic mattress in master, and stone fireplace (gas). This place has it all--views, trees, meadows, wildlife, walking trails (dirt road), seasonal lake for kayaking or canoes. Quaint newer home with incredible charm--gas BBQ, covered porch.

Hammond pond is a seasonal 70 acre lake that attracts wildlife and local fishermen. Nestled between Mount Shasta and Black Butte to the east and the 'Eddys' to the west, abundant day hike opportunities exist. If you are not up to climbing the 14,000 ft Mount Shasta, the Pacific Crest Trail offers many easier day hikes--one of my favorites is from the top of Stewart Springs road to Deadfall Lakes--an easy, relatively flat 4 mile (one way), spectacularly beautiful hike. The 'Park's Creek' trailhead is about 30 minutes from the house.

Another gem is the McCloud Falls trail--make sure you don't miss the Middle Falls! McCloud is about 15 miles east of Mt Shasta City on Highway 89. The Falls are a few miles east of McCloud at the 'Fowler's' turnoff.

There is also a maze of dirt roads to explore that connect the homes and properties of 'Hammond Ranch'. Besides the Lake, many creeks flow through the Ranch--the Shasta River (just a stream at this point), Dale Creek and Eddy Creek. Following Dale Creek road past the house to Dale Creek, crossing Dale Creek (you have to wade) and then on to Eddy Creek offers a wonderful 8 mile round trip. Hike or mountain bike along a minimally travelled, relatively flat, bumpy dirt road. Wildflowers abound and the road winds along a hillside that offers dramatic views of Mount Shasta and the valley. You may take quads along the roads--but please observe the 15 mph speed limit on the private roads.

Whether you use our home as a base camp or a place to unwind, you will find that you don't want to leave the spell that it casts over you. When I have guests the most common thing I hear in the morning is 'How do you leave this place to go to work?' This is not just a place to stay--it is a destination!

About Sylvia

We built this home in 1994 after purchasing the property in 1992.

Sylvia purchased this house in 1994

Why Sylvia chose Mount Shasta

Once you come you will know why this property was the one we would never let go of. He always loved flat land and I always loved views...the minute we walked onto this land, we knew we were staying.

What makes this house unique

We designed this home to take full advantage of the views of the lake while minimizing the road. Because this is a small home, we also did not want to waste space with hallways. Both bedrooms are mini-suites at opposite ends of the house. The guest bedroom has its bath just steps from the door. This bath is the main bath for the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome to our home. We hope you enjoy your visit as much as we have enjoyed living beside the lake. Please return to the guestbook after your stay to let others know what a wonderful time you had at our magical and peaceful stone cottage.

Upscale Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is great combination of modern, cozy, and stylish with fabulous scenery just outside the windows. It was a joy to sit at the kitchen table and just gaze out the window at the water and geese. There are neighbors but far enough away that it hardly matters. While there's a feeling of isolation, you're only a 10-15 minute drive away from Weed and Mt. Shasta City. It was easy to purchase groceries or eat out. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking. There's an easy 30-minute walk around the pond with views of Mt. Shasta. People we met on the walk were welcoming. Silvia made everything easy. She responded quickly and was flexible.

Great place to unwind

  • of 5

We had such an awesome time here, the house had everything we needed to unwind from city life. Sylvia was a pleasure to deal with which added to our experience. Would recommend to anyone, and I'm sure we'll be back!

A true romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Unique home in an outstanding setting. Dog loved all the surrounding open space while we enjoyed hanging on the deck and watching the wildlife. There are no other homes or structures within view, feels almost like wilderness camping but you are staying in a modern and luxurious stone cabin. Use of the garage was very helpful. Will be back.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. It is a magical place and private for being so close in...It is hard to describe to people that it is still a wonderful place even with the lake DRY, in this very difficult drought year.

Model Outdoor Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

In twenty five years of renting vacation homes, I have never stayed in a better appointed and more tastefully decorated vacation home. The kitchen, master bedroom, and master bath are well laid out with features that you would find in magazines like Sunset and Architectural Digest. The granite counter tops and river stone fireplace are especially elegant.

The location is beautiful (despite the low water level in the reservoir) and incredible separation from neighbors makes you feel that you are alone in the woods. Add to that the wildlife - two families of Canadian Geese with goslings and a pair of juvenile Sandhill Cranes - and you have a perfect outdoor get-away location.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay...thanks for the photos of the geese... I think one of the reasons this home is special is because it was our home, not something we purchased for a vacation rental...we lovingly crafted it ourselves for ourselves. It helps that we are contractors and that is what we do for a living. look forward to seeing you next year.

This house is a great place to just get away. Very relaxing with gorgeous views and plenty to do around the property. I will definitely be back again!

Great week of seclusion!

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful! I was worried that the house would be too small, give the square footage, but it's very comfortable for a family of 4. There is definitely no wasted space and all of the beautiful windows add to the sense of openness. Sylvia was incredibly responsive to any issues, including sending us to a local shop for a new DVD player when we discovered that the one at the house was not working. She didn't hesitate to replace it immediately. The lake was dry when we were there so we didn't have the same beautiful vista in some of the pictures but it really didn't matter. The trees and the isolation were what we were looking for and we were not disappointed. We really couldn't have been happier with our week!
