Bodhana means Awareness or Awakening, and our unique mountain vacation rental is perfect for surrounding yourself with nature to awaken your senses, to rejuvenate your relationships, and to ‘touch the earth’. This one-of-a-kind gem sits on 20-acres with two constantly-flowing creeks and a fresh-water lake. With abundant wildlife and with impressive views of the mountain, this private and cozy alpine retreat is conveniently located minutes from town, the golf and ski resorts, and Lake Siskiyou and the wilderness beyond (Pacific Crest Trail and the Mt. Shasta backcountry)!
Our guests enjoy gathering in groups for special events—a birthday, an anniversary, a reunion, a life celebration, an off-site meeting. They welcome the opportunity to be with each other and to have shared experiences. Others relish spending quiet and meditative time in a peaceful setting, where the privacy and where nature are conducive for retreats, sabbaticals, and overall personal wellness.
Northern California is a year-round playground, and Bodhana is a perfect gateway from which to explore and to adventure around this amazing area.
In winter, enjoy Nordic skiing, alpine skiing/boarding, snowshoeing or snowmobiling (back-side of Shasta has many miles of trails!). The ski park is 20 minutes away. Prefer the warmth of a cozy home? Snuggle-up by the fire and read a book or watch a movie and stare at the mountain as the light changes throughout the day.
We have optimized our home website with additional information for the surrounding area at bodhanshasta.com, as well as, added links to other websites for Siskiyou County and some articles of interest regarding Mt. Shasta.
Mt. Shasta is home to many special events throughout the year, which includes the historic 4th of July celebration, Mt. Shasta Summit Bike Race, the Shasta Taiko Festival, the Cool Nights Blackberry Music Festival. Mt. Shasta City is also a good launching point for near-by points of interest, like Pluto's Cave and Medicine Lake, or even the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, OR! Every December, Santa and his elves are seen taking the sleigh around town…again, please check our website for local happenings!
In addition, fly-fish on the world famous Upper Sacramento and McCloud rivers or swim/boat in the pristine alpine lakes. There are three public golf courses nearby and plenty of outdoor exploring can be done in the three national forests that surround Mt. Shasta. The backcountry offers many trails to bike and hike! Castle Crags State Park is close by, as well as, access to the Pacific Crest Trail.
