About The Owner
We are urban San Franciscans who always dreamed of having a property where we could get back to nature. We grew up fishing, hiking and exploring, and we can truly say we have found the perfect escape from our busy life in the city. It is a great pleasure to share our home with friends, family and guests.
The Owner purchased this house in 2010
Why The Owner chose Mount Lassen
Shingletown is a quaint community, just a few miles from Lassen National Park and surrounded by pristine lakes, streams and abundant hiking. We fell in love with the property's 20 acres which are home to deer, jack rabbits and countless species of birds. Even in Summer, Shingletown is never crowded. It feels remote, but it is only 45 minutes away from the Shasta Premium Outlets and the town of Redding and its historic downtown.
What makes this house unique
Looking at the skies from the hot tub, you will be amazed to see so many stars!!!!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have rented this house twice, but it's more like a family resort. The house is gorgeous. Rustic, comfortable, with great furniture, and eclectic decorations. A Vermont castings fireplace. The kitchen has an antique six burner gas stove, plus a full array of condiments and spices, great knives, and lots of pots and pans. Enough space for 15 people in our group.
I also enjoyed the personal touches like the pictures of the owners’ families going back 3 generations. The 20 acre backyard has a large firepit. A sledding hill for the kids in winter. (Ours adore it.) Horseshoes, ping pong, baseball gloves, mountain bikes. There is a canoe and two cayaks for nearby Lake McCumber. Snow shoes. And an entertainment room with a flatscreen.
There has been extensive restoration work on historic North Battle Creek running through the property. We saw brown trout and blue herons. The woods are also great for walking.
Lassen National Park is spectacular (only open in summer) with very little traffic. The house manager is also a neighbor. He knows everything about the house and the area. Did I mention the cedar hot tub on the deck?
