About Lindy and Dan Fay

Our family fell in love with the McCloud area while visiting friends for the 2005 New Years holiday. We loved the idea of buying a home that allowed us to enjoy the small town right from our front porch, and have everything we needed within a short walking or biking distance. Restoring and renovating Toad Hollow has been a remarkable journey, and we absolutely love sharing it with families from all over the world. After all these years, we are still discovering new places to explore, and never grow tired of the beauty of the changing seasons, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, mountains, and trails.

Lindy and Dan Fay purchased this house in 2005

Why Lindy and Dan Fay chose McCloud

McCloud is a slice of heaven in Northern California. Enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful mountain getaway without the crowds. Don't worry about holiday freeway traffic jams, just head north on I-5, open the door and relax!

Great place to stay for a girls week

  • 5 out of 5
I booked Toad Hollow for myself, 3 friends, and my little dog to visit Mt. Shasta and do some day hiking. It was a great place to stay! The bedrooms were all comfortable, the kitchen was a wonderful combination of modern appliances and original touches, and the living areas were very welcoming. It was quite warm when we were there, but there's a whole-house fan the really cools down the 3 bedrooms upstairs quickly in the late afternoon/evening. Those bedrooms share a sizeable bathroom that's entered via one of the bedrooms, so put your soundest sleeper there. The downstairs bedroom has it's own bathroom, but the trade-off is that the whole-house fan doesn't hit downstairs so you need a regular fan and it doesn't cool down quite as much as the upstairs. House and yard were extremely clean and well kept, plenty of parking for our two cars in front of the house, with more parking we rarely used in the back. Good supplies and equipment in the kitchen; we enjoyed hanging out on the front porch watching the world go by and cooking each evening after being out and about all day. There's a nice size fenced yard with lots of grass for a little dog to roll around in. Great hikes we did in the vicinity include Squaw Valley/Cabin Creek and the Pacific Crest Trail to Porcupine Lake, along with the much more local McCloud waterfall walk/hike. At the house there's also a one-page guide for a walking tour of the historic buildings in McCloud, which is another interesting way to spend an hour or two. All 4 of us agreed this was one of the best places we've booked over the years!

Owner's Response: Gail,

We hope that you will get back soon, to further explore the area. After almost ten years, we keep finding new places that we didn't know existed. Life on the porch is one of our favorite pastimes, so we are happy that you got to enjoy that wonderful part of McCloud.

Amazing stay-cation in McCloud/ Mt. Shasta!!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this great place during the Memorial weekend. We were party of 10 with one kid and Toad hollow was a perfect house for us. The house is very comfortable and it was a great place to gather with friends. It was well decorated and stocked with kitchen utensils, supplies and toys for kids. The beds were very comfy and night was extremely peaceful. We spent time kayaking in McCloud lake, swimming in Mccloud falls and playing team games at night. The host Lindy is an extremely nice and friendly lady and her recommendations on breakfast place, lunch place and kayak/ bike rentals was very helpful with our planning. We would highly recommend staying at Toad Hollow and McCloud.

We loved it!

  • 5 out of 5
We had heard great things about McCloud from some friends and wanted to try something different than Lake Tahoe. The drive was less than 5 hours and when we arrived late, Toad Hollow was waiting with lights bright and warm. The house is perfect for our 3 kids and lab, Gizmo; clean, well appointed and just plain cute. Every morning, my husband and I walked into town and had breakfast at the White Mountain Cafe, before the kids were awake - perfect! Best of all, we were on the ski slopes in 15 minutes with no traffic or parking hassles - during Ski Week! This is a true gem. Thanks Lindy - we'll be back!

Owner's Response: I was just sure that you would fall in love with the area, and I'm so glad that you did! Your summer experience will be completely different. Be sure to ask me about how to get to some of the beautiful little mountain lakes, and some of our favorite hiking trails. We look forward to sharing more of our little piece of heaven.

Homey, Bright, Comfortable Rental in McCloud

  • 5 out of 5
This was our family’s first time visiting the Mt. Shasta area. Toad Hollow was the perfect rental for us! It is homey, bright and inviting. Our kids had a blast playing in the snowy winter wonderland in the front and back yards! The owners have done a great job renovating the house – the perfect balance of charm and comfort. We also appreciated the short 10 minute drive to Mt.Shasta Ski Park. We will definitely be back to explore the area more!

So pretty in the snow!

  • 5 out of 5
Our two families stayed here to enjoy skiing on Mt. Shasta. We arrived to such a pretty scene at Toad Hollow with cheerfully lit Christmas Tree and other lights which all shone on the porch surrounded by snow. Inside we were greeted by a toasty warm cozy house and wine! All was clean and welcoming and suited all our needs. In between the snowy clouds, Mt. Shasta would rear its majestic head in the view from our porch. Lindy the owner could not have been more helpful, caring or efficient and truly did more than might be expected. Judy who cleans was amazingly kind and timely with the cleaning. We would recommend this home to anyone, winter or summer. In the winter with snow it's just adorable, as is McCloud when it's all white! We dined at the newly opened restaurant in the McCloud Hotel and the hostess and food were just great. Skiing/snowboarding at Mt. Shasta is easy and reasonably priced - we had a great fun on our third time at these slopes.
