Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Weed

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

Peaceful Lakeside Home on 6 acres. This is the place you are looking for--once you come, no other rental will do. Hammond pond is a seasonal private lake that no motorized boats are allowed on. Watch the wild geese raise their young or the deer graze in the meadow.

Our home has a fully stocked Granite kitchen, Tempurpedic mattress in master, and stone fireplace (gas). This place has it all--views, trees, meadows, wildlife, walking trails (dirt road), seasonal lake for kayaking or canoes. Quaint newer home with incredible charm--gas BBQ, covered porch.

Hammond pond is a seasonal 70 acre lake that attracts wildlife and local fishermen. Nestled between Mount Shasta and Black Butte to the east and the 'Eddys' to the west, abundant day hike opportunities exist. If you are not up to climbing the 14,000 ft Mount Shasta, the Pacific Crest Trail offers many easier day hikes--one of my favorites is from the top of Stewart Springs road to Deadfall Lakes--an easy, relatively flat 4 mile (one way), spectacularly beautiful hike. The 'Park's Creek' trailhead is about 30 minutes from the house.

Another gem is the McCloud Falls trail--make sure you don't miss the Middle Falls! McCloud is about 15 miles east of Mt Shasta City on Highway 89. The Falls are a few miles east of McCloud at the 'Fowler's' turnoff.

There is also a maze of dirt roads to explore that connect the homes and properties of 'Hammond Ranch'. Besides the Lake, many creeks flow through the Ranch--the Shasta River (just a stream at this point), Dale Creek and Eddy Creek. Following Dale Creek road past the house to Dale Creek, crossing Dale Creek (you have to wade) and then on to Eddy Creek offers a wonderful 8 mile round trip. Hike or mountain bike along a minimally travelled, relatively flat, bumpy dirt road. Wildflowers abound and the road winds along a hillside that offers dramatic views of Mount Shasta and the valley. You may take quads along the roads--but please observe the 15 mph speed limit on the private roads.

Whether you use our home as a base camp or a place to unwind, you will find that you don't want to leave the spell that it casts over you. When I have guests the most common thing I hear in the morning is 'How do you leave this place to go to work?' This is not just a place to stay--it is a destination!

About Sylvia

We built this home in 1994 after purchasing the property in 1992.

Sylvia purchased this house in 1994

Why Sylvia chose Shasta Cascade

Once you come you will know why this property was the one we would never let go of. He always loved flat land and I always loved views...the minute we walked onto this land, we knew we were staying.

What makes this house unique

We designed this home to take full advantage of the views of the lake while minimizing the road. Because this is a small home, we also did not want to waste space with hallways. Both bedrooms are mini-suites at opposite ends of the house. The guest bedroom has its bath just steps from the door. This bath is the main bath for the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome to our home. We hope you enjoy your visit as much as we have enjoyed living beside the lake. Please return to the guestbook after your stay to let others know what a wonderful time you had at our magical and peaceful stone cottage.

Clean, beautiful and welcoming.

Our family felt comfortable and well taken care of in the home. We were easily able to access many restaurants and hiking trails. We will definitely be returning.

What a GEM!!!

  • 5 of 5

As the summer was quickly coming to a close I realized I had not rented a house for an informal family reunion as I normally do. With a daughter in Ashland, son in Burney, and daughter in Redding I wanted something central to everyone. I found the house and knew it would be perfect. We spent three days canoeing, kayaking, fishing, playing games, and re-connecting before the school year began. The kitchen is excellent, the beds were comfortable, and the yard and surroundings were clean and private. The only unfortunate thing was the weather. We had an extremely hot day and did not have the usual afternoon breezes to cool us down. I would suggest floor fans and screens on the doors for those days. But that was an unusual day for the area and I am sure others will find this house and the surrounding pond as amazing as my family and I did.

Delicious stay at the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The location and amenities of the Cottage were even better than expected. Clean and well-organized throughout. Luxurious master bath shower was extra nice. The kitchen is particularly well outfitted and we enjoyed cooking all our meals in house. The cottage itself was a perfect size and layout for two couples, and we really enjoyed coffee (and cocktails) with the the view from the deck overlooking the pond, and of Mt. Shasta from the pond's edge. We loved the bird sounds at sunrise and throughout the day, and woke to coyotes in the middle of one night. Our dogs especially enjoyed the generous grass area for long wrestling matches and frisbee. Great local hikes for us in the Eddy's and around Mt. Shasta, too.

We would definitely recommend this property to our friends (and might have tried to stay another week if we could). Thanks for sharing your home.

The sweet artistic cottage by the lake was delightful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is artistically designed and care had been taken to make it unique and magical!! From the frogs singing at night to the fabulous sound of the Canadian Geese honking, it gave us chance to connect with nature. We relaxed, watched the fire dance in hearth, laughed and felt right at home. Thank you for sharing your lovely piece of paradise.

High end cottage finishes with cozy charm

  • 4 of 5

This spot was amazing! Snow outside our back door! House was well stocked and a cut above the rest. Great experience for a private home close to mount Shasta that's not downtown. Could have been larger but great for two couples, ideal.
