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 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! Read our 5 Star Reviews!

Stunning 5-bedroom, 4-bath log house on 20 acres of forest and meadowland, in mountains near Mt. Lassen National Park.

The property is set at 4400 feet elevation with historic North Battle Creek running through the backyard, the subject of a major restoration of natural habitat to sylvan condition.

Jackalope Acres isn't just a place to stay--it's a place to create memories! A family resort! Or a couples get away! With amenities available nowhere else in the area.

If you have a larger group than 17, including a school or a church group, or a possible wedding, we may be able to accommodate you with a reasonable additional charge and security deposit. Feel free to contact us.

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

Jackalope Acres is unique set on 20 private acres with extensive trails throughout the grounds for walking, (and in winter) snow shoeing, or cross country skiing. There are 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 at the 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.

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. We provide the spices condiments, napkins, paper towels, etc!

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 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, and entertain. Great in all four seasons. Warm summer temperatures with cool nights and gorgeous, moderate winter snows.

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 backyard, you will be amazed to see so many stars!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family (of 16) and I had a GREAT experience staying at the Lassen cabin! Not only was the caretaker (Erik) present upon arrival to answer all of our questions, but there was also a booklet with LOTS of information regarding the property and things to do in the surrounding area. John & Isabel have done a great job with this cabin, everything from dishes to furnishings are not only of great quality, but also beautiful. We all had a wonderful time cooking large meals in the kitchen, which had ample supply of cooking and serving ware (great assets)! We also enjoyed all of the amenities that the home offered, such as the hot tub, fire pit, horseshoe pit, ping pong table, media room, bikes and snow sleds! Thank you again to the owners for opening up their home, it is definitely a place we hope to visit again in the near future!

amazing Jackalope Acres!!!

  • 5 of 5

Three families, 4 days, lots of kiddos, incredible food on the menu, a

mini road trip all to arrive at the amazing Jackalope Acres!!! What

could have been a recipe for a wild adventure ended up being an epic

feasting, playing, laughing, hiking, hot tubbing and lifetime memory

making long weekend. It was all because of the incredible house.

Jackalope Acres is meticulously stocked with literally EVERYTHING and

ANYTHING we needed or wanted and then some. Above and beyond our

expectations. Each bedroom had wonderful linens and cozy beds aplenty.

Every part of the home and property is well thought out and beautifully

created. Even though we were there in January and there was not a flake

of snow to be found, we were thoroughly entertained at every minute. The

property allowed for the children to run free. We had wonderful bonfires

in the evenings. The kitchen allowed us to create beautiful masterpieces

of our meals. We all got to sit around the cozy inside fire, swapping

story and laughing in total enjoyment of each other!

We will for sure be coming back and thought what a special place this

would be to create an annual tradition together. This could be the start

of a beautiful relationship!

Perfect Group Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jackalopes Acres for making my mom's dream come true. She has been trying to get all the grandchildren together in one spot for years. My family (4 siblings, spouses, 6 grandchildren age 4-16, grandparents a total of 14 of us) selected Jackalopes Acres as our first ever family reunion/vacation. It was the perfect destination. My husband, 3 kids, and the dog drove from Idaho and had been in contact with Eric the caretaker who met us at the property. As we pulled into the red gate and took eyes on the estate we all took a collective sigh it was perfect. Eric was kind and understanding as we spilled out of the car as we all looked like we had been driving for 9 hours and had been up since 3am :-). We entered the home and it was really so stunning the pictures do not do the home justice. He gave us the run down on the property and the homes handbook. The rest of the group arrived later that day and they all had the same stunned reaction this was perfect! The room above the garage slept all 6 grand girls and the adults took the main house. We enjoyed hanging out at the creek, we saw more deer then we can count, lounging on the deck with cocktails, soaking in the hot tub after days of hiking, playing board games, and doing jigsaw puzzles, cooking meals in the wonderful kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a plethora of spices and high end cooking utensils. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all perfectly though out and equipped with everything you need. The home is clean and beautiful. Outside of Jackalope Acres we hiked Kings Falls, went horseback riding, hiked at Lake McCumber saw a bald Eagle, and went swimming at Battle Creek Reservoir. I really just want to say thank you for opening your home to us and giving us a wonderful opportunity to enjoy each others company and enjoy the natural beauty of the area.

Exceptional Home on 22 acres in the Forest

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional vacation rental for families, and for couples sharing expenses. There are 22 acres of meadows and forest to wander, and decks where you can sit and enjoy the quiet beauty and bounty that surrounds you. The house is extremely well-equipped and well-managed, with (more than!) everything needed for a great vacation. There's something rewarding for everyone in a group to do: visit Lassen National Park with its thermal features and vistas, fish or boat in a wide choice of lakes and streams, hike forests with hundreds of miles of trails, and more. If you're looking for peace and quiet, adventure, sightseeing, or water sports, this can't be beat.

Perfect 10/10 place to spend a weekend getaway in the woods!! This place did not disappoint!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here Thursday-Saturday with 7 other friends for the weekend. The pictures you see from the cabin is EXACTLY what the cabin looks like and MORE. Eric goes around to show you all the rooms you can use...the entertainment room stocked with fun boardgames, the kitchen fully stocked with pans,pots,utensils,etc! The garage has fishing gear to visit the nearby creek, which we used! This cabin made us fall in love with the woods, the hot tub in the back is something everyone should use and the firepit was beautiful!! We are going to make this an annual trip, everything is fully stocked. The bathroom had towels and bathroom supplies and cleaning supplies! There is firewood stocked and ready to go! The area is enclosed with beautiful trees and during sunset the sunlight peaks through the trees giving a warm glow.

I loved everything about this cabin, you will not be disappointed, it was incredible and I am very very happy there is a place like this to stay and feel at home. The cabin is furnished with blankets, pillows everything you need. You wouldn't need to bring much other than your clothes and food to cook with.

There is a game room with ping pong table, weights and yoga ball for exercising. There is an indoor firepit, oldschool and it makes you feel like you are just getting away from it all. We stayed during the day and grilled hamburgers, used the hot tub, played water balloon fights and went fishing for small fish in the creek nearby.

There's no questioning whether or not this is a good place, because..this is an awesome place that brought my family and friends closer together and created a lot of memories here.

What a Wonderful Place!

  • 5 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!
