ULTIMATE LASSEN HOUSE! CEDAR HOT TUB! BOOK FOR FALL AND WINTER!

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Mount Lassen - Jackalope Acres: Lassen House

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps up to 17)

Jackalope Acres, our fabulous family forest estate, awaits you only 15 minutes from Mt. Lassen National Park in the heart of some the most gorgeous, unspoiled hiking and fishing country in California--or the world!

Stunning 5-bedroom, 4-bath log house on 20 acres of forest and meadowland.

A few summer dates remain! Consider the fall, a fabulous season in Lassen area! Winter holidays are also currently open but won't last long!

The property is set at 4300 feet elevation with historic North Battle Creek running through the backyard, the subject of a major restoration of natural habitat this year!

Jackalope Acres isn't just a place to stay--it's a place to vacation and live! A family resort! An adult get away! With amenities available nowhere else in the area.

Our custom Alaskan cedar hot tub, sunken into the large wrap around deck, is the perfect place to start the day watching the hummingbirds or end it with a cocktail or a glass of wine.

There are extensive trails throughout the grounds for walking, (and in winter) snow shoeing, or cross country skiing, with multiple evergreen species, black oak, plus meadows with native grasses and flowers.

You'll see deer, dove, quail, blue heron, and even wild turkeys. Bring a basket and enjoy a picnic at the table by creek.

Use our canoe or our kayaks at no adidtional charge on nearby Lake McCumber, also known for it's huge wild trout, bald eagles, and osprey.

Play croquet, badminton,or volley ball on the grass lawn. Throw horseshoes in the firepit. Or throw the footballs, frisbees, or play catch with our balls and gloves. One man's and one woman's mountain bike--and miles of roads. World class indoor outdoor ping pong table!

In winter, we have 4 sets of snow shoes for use on our 20 acres or for Mt Lassen Park. There is a sledding hill on the property kids love. Or take our sleds up to Eskimo Hill where the locals go! Or just watch the leaves and the snow fall from the hot tub! 90 minutes from Mt. Shasta winter skiing!

Bedrooms include two master suites, one in main house and second in gorgeous open loft, each with individual attached baths. Main house has 2 additional upstairs bedrooms (one with additional loft bed) and shared bath. Downstairs bedroom has its own hall bath. Perfect for 5 individuals or 5 couples, but with additional futon sofas in master suites, house can sleep 17.

Gorgeous, eclectic interior lighting and furnishings. Original art and photography throughout house.

Cook gourmet meals in the newly remodeled, fully equipped kitchen with quartz counter tops and state-of-the-art appliances. Six-burner cast iron gas stove, conventional, convection and microwave ovens, Cusinart, blender, coffee maker, ice cream maker, and extra refrigerator and freezer in garage.

Entertain in the open living room/dining area with state of art iPod and laptop compatible media stereo. Relax in the separate sitting area in front of the Vermont Castings fireplace. In summer, bring the outdoors in: living and dining area also open to deck through 2 sets of sliding doors, with dining tables and lounge chairs. Cook on the propane grill with a gorgeous custom made prep table.

There is an enclosed firepit close to the house for evening camp fires, marshmallows and smores!

Enjoy your favorite sports events in the media room with 50' plasma flat screen, satellite TV package, Bose surround sound, Blue Ray DVD, game table and bar.

Wireless Internet throughout the house.

Fully automatic backup generator power for entire house and all appliances. Laundry room. Caretaker and cleaning service is available in the neighborhood.

This incredible, one of a kind estate is only 15 minutes from Mt. Lassen National Volcanic Park, an untrafficked jewel for both winter and summer.

Jackalope Acres is 11 miles from Shingletown, and 35 miles from Downtown Redding. It's 235 miles northeast San Francisco--a four hour drive--and only 35 minutes from Redding airport. Special, spectacular backroads driving directions available!

Jackolope Acres is also only 30 miles from world famous trout fishery Hat Creek.

Dozens of other world class rivers, streams, lakes, and state parks are all within 1 hour or less. World class private fishing booking are available through Fly Shop in Redding.

The house is also only 1/2 hour from the emerging Manton Valley winery district with small wineries, a wide range of varietals and friendly, vintner staffed tasting rooms.

There is a world class restaurant and an award winning winery 20 minutes away at Anselmo's, where you can also trail ride the 4,000 acre ranch with the owners on provided horses. Great local burgers and homemade Mexican food are also available nearby.

The area is unspoiled, uncrowded, and free from the traffic and people jams of so many other California “outdoor” destinations such as Yosemite or Lake Tahoe.

Sun Oaks Racquet Club 35 minutes away allows day passes for tennis and/or to use their complete fitness facility. More detailed, custom activity suggestions in owner created guidebook at house.

Truly a place to get away, relax, explore, entertain, and create memories. Great in all four seasons. Warm summer temperatures with cool nights and gorgeous, moderate winter snows.

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?

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

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.

Looking at the skies from the hot tub, you will be amazed to see so many stars!!!!

What a Wonderful Place!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I, our four kids and their spouses, and our 7 grandchildren (ages 3 months to 14 years old) just spent a truly wonderful week at Jackalope Acres. The home was stunning, very attractive, roomy, and filled with everything we needed - plus many extras. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this fantastic vacation rental!

In addition, John and Isabel were quite pleasant to deal with, and their property manager, Erik, could not have been more welcoming and more helpful.

The 17 of us feel most fortunate to have stayed there. I'm only sorry that I can't give it more than 5 stars. If you chose to stay there, you will not be disappointed!

All you could want and more...

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from an idyllic holiday weekend at "Jackalope Acres." The owners could not have created a more comfortable atmosphere for our group (of 8) weekend getaway. The house was impeccably clean on our arrival; the property manager walked us through everything we needed to know and was available during our stay to answer questions.

The kitchen! Sometimes when renting places my friends and I bring our own knives, dishtowels, or obscure equipment because who knows what you'll find in a rental house. This was the best stocked kitchen I've ever rented -- from top-quality knives to a (well used) ice-cream maker.

The property is miles from the road and as a result is blissfully quiet. One barely hears neighbors; the most prominent noises were the wind and pleasantly chirping birds. There really is a cool creek running through the property.

All sorts of great "toys" available to renters, including a canoe, kayaks, ping pong table, and a fantastic media room.

All this plus it's just a short drive to the Manzanita Lake entrance of Lassen.

The pride of ownership in this house is extraordinary. Worth the journey from San Francisco or pretty much anywhere else!

Warm and comfy elegance in country retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Enjoyed a five day get away from it all retreat at this beautiful log home. Impeccably clean, warmly furnished, and comfortable, the house is perfect for small or large groups. We enjoyed hiking, kayaking, biking, and just plain relaxing in the surrounding areas. Loved being near Lassen National Park, one of the national park system's best kept 'secrets'. Warm sunny days, cool beautiful quiet nights. Great getaway for city slickers like me.

Sweet pad!

  • 5 out of 5
Better than the photos.... I had friends and family of all ages attend my birthday away weekend here. We all had a great time - there was ample linens, kitchenware, and indoor and outdoor space for my 15 guests. I highly recommend this place for a getaway in the woods, and close to hikes and other outdoor activities.

Expectations Were Exceeded!

  • 5 out of 5
We a group of adult couples who travel to new destinations to get away. Jackalope Acres exceeded our expectations. The photos and the descriptions are great but really can't prepare you for being there.
The forest air is one of the first things you notice and then inside, all the blond wood. The house is decorated with style but is unpretentious. It's large and everyone could have privacy or socialize. We recommend the Paradise Meadow hike in Lassen with the head waters of Hat Creek rushing down in waterfalls.
We cooked fabulous meals, drank local wine, and, following the guidebook, discovered the apple fritters down the hill. A lot less pricey and less crowded than Tahoe or the wine country. Recommended as an unspoiled destination.

Fabulous long weekend away!

  • 5 out of 5
We just came back from a 4 nights away in the country. This place has all the amenities you will ever need. It is truly a great place, with open space to spread out and to enjoy clean air, water and it has all the conveniences you need. The kitchen, the hot tube, fire pit outside to the media room and internet access to the well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms; the attention to our every need made this a trip to remember. We could have easily stayed for one week to enjoy all the outside amenities and not get enough. Erik the manager was a joy to talk to and just a call away, for us city people it was very comforting to know he is around and I have a feeling that he truly take pride to care for this special place!

The secret undiscovered North State region of California around Lassen National Park is uncrowded and stunningly gorgeous. Hiking, plus kayaking and canoing (we have the kayaks and the canoe for you!), incredible fishing, biking (we have those too!), star gazing, a small world class restaurant, wine tasting...These are just a few of your options in our neighborhood! Not to mention the amenities at our house.
