8 MINUTES FROM LASSEN PARK

It's time to start making Summer and Fall Travel Plans for your getaway in 2017! This wonderful mountain chalet is hidden away on a private country no thoroughfare road in the small community of Viola.This area is equally as pristine as Tahoe, without the crowds and high rates. There is easy access to the North Entrance of Mt Lassen Park from the cottage, just about 8 minutes and you're there. We are fortunate to have very few neighbors which are mostly summer cabins, you can rest assured that you will have privacy and this is NOT IN A SUBDIVISION. There are many miles of trails to explore, right out the front door. We keep our calender current daily and offer this cottage from Memorial Day through Oct 31st. We are now taking reservations for the upcoming 2017 Season. This is our 9th season for rental and we would like to thank all of our visitors from around the world for making it possible for us to share the cottage.

This home is approximately 1850' total, newer construction (completed in the winter of 2007), 2 story, with 2 bedrooms downstairs and full bath with jacuzzi tub and shower, full kitchen (all new appliances and everything you will need to prepare any size meal) a, dining area and living room, plus 600' sleeping loft and den with 3 additional beds, quiet sitting area and 1/2 bath plus small deck with view of yard and the year round creek. So plenty of room to spread out. This is the perfect setup for 2 -10 guests.

There is also a large deck in front, back and side of cottage, a total of about 700 sq ft of decking which overlooks yards and creek., with a nice lawn out in the front yard.

VERY COMFORTABLE PLUSH PILLOW TOP MATTRESSES -

Listed in Frommers Top Destinations to Visit - Lassen National Volcanic Park. Just under 4 hours from SF Bay Area and under 3 hours from Sacramento.

You will not be disappointed with this unique opportunity to stay at our mountain chalet.

There are many lakes, waterfalls and hiking trails very close by. Fishing is popular in this area with the The Famous Hat Creek just 20 minutes away. We have a year round creek in the back yard with small native trout and a fishing pond just down the lane. There is a campfire pit & small deck set up by the creek for family campfires and cooking. Campfires are only allowed if weather and conditions are suitable.

Other things to do in the area close by would include: Wineries, Subway Caves, Burney Falls, Fall River Golf Resort, Mt. Shasta Ski & Board Park, Lake Britton, Sundial Bridge. If you prefer to stay close to the house, there is an entire Private Forest Land right out the front door for hiking, mountain biking, ATV riding etc. Expect to see wildlife such as squirrels, chipmunks, birds, and deer. A relaxing massage can be arranged by appointment. The sound of the creek will put you into a pleasant nights rest.

We are located at 4500' elevation with comfortable days and nights during the summer and fall. The snow comes usually in December and stays through March or April. The winter activities would include: snowmobiling, snowboarding, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, tubing.

Bring the family or just get away for a romantic adventure.

About Rebecca Moore

We are originally from the SF Bay Area. We came to this area as children, so many fond childhood memories were made here. We moved to Oregon for 20 years. We now have children & grandchildren in the SF Bay Area. We decided to move closer and this area was our number one choice. We live down the lane from our rental property so it has worked out well for us and our guests. We look forward to sharing our piece of heaven with you. Pura Vida, your hosts, Bob & Rebecca Moore

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this property at the end of a 25-day trip in our 17 foot travel trailer. What a perfect finale! First, the house was THE cleanest VRBO property we have ever rented. It's one thing to have clean floors and bathrooms. It's quite another to have every utensil drawer spotless. Pretty amazing. Second, the stream that runs behind the property provides a perfect background melody for sleeping or enjoying morning coffee on the deck. Third, though we only slept in the master bedroom, we can attest that the bed in that room we extremely comfortable. Fourth, the proximity to the Park entrance that we used each day to reach trail heads was extremely convenient. Lastly, interactions with ownership were seamless. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Near Lassen NW entrance - Tranquil cottage in the woods overlooking a rushing creek

  • 4 of 5

Rebecca has graciously shared her lovely home for a restful stay and a home base for exploring the wonders of Lassen Volcanic Natl Park, one of the most underrated NPs -- even many Californians haven't heard of this park (one of many designated by Teddy Roosevelt), the same distance from the SF bay area as Yosemite. We were originally going to Yosemite/Half Dome, a year in planning, when the fire and smoke caused us, sadly, to cancel, We were lucky to arrange this alternative at the last minute (confirmed the day we were to drive up!).

It's hard not to relax when surrounded by towering pines and firs and accompanied by the steady, soothing sound of a fast-moving, rocky creek -- good for chilling your feet after a day of hiking. The kitchen is well stocked, plenty of spices and utensils, the deck is a wonderful place for rehashing the day's adventures over dinner (there are bug candles but you might want to bring some bug spray), the area is safe, and we slept with the windows open to enjoy the cool air and be lulled to sleep by stream sounds.

Internet is broadband, so don't you dare bring work with you. It's good for occasional mail checks and cell phone data. Cell service in this area is limited to non-existent - again, it's time to relax! There is a phone for local calls or credit card distance calls.

The living area has chess, board games, puzzles, and an interesting collection of books (Euclid!). We didn't watch TV (DVD) but there is one in the loft. And, of course, Rebecca's signature fresh baked bread with butter and jam was a warm welcome after the half day drive.

Two restaurants and a pizza place - 18-20 miles from cabin. Markets also same distance with surprisingly nice selection of meats and veggies for being remote. Call to check restaurant hours before going, or check in person when you drive by on the way hiking or to market.

Highly recommend this cozy respite.

Lovely house in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the storybook cottage near Lassen. It's peaceful and comfortable, with lots of different spaces and places to sit indoors and outdoors. I also appreciated some little details like the fresh bread and a well-equipped kitchen.

We're travelling with two young kids (4.5 and nearly 2) and they loved exploring this house and sleeping up on the mezzanine. It also worked really well for us to be so close to Lassen National Park, as we went up there every day, sometimes twice.

Peaceful Place in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cottage. It is one of the most well managed properties we've booked. If you enjoy cooking, the kitchen has just about everything you could need (even a microplane!). Everything was in great shape and the place was spotless. The neighbors are friendly, the neighborhood is peaceful and lovely, and you are minutes away from the Manzanita Lake entrance to Lassen (which is now in the running for one of my favorite national parks!). If the road through the park is closed (as it was due to snow during our stay), know that it takes about 90 minutes to get to the other park entrance, but it's a pretty drive through the country. We can't wait to return to the cottage and explore more of the park! Oh, and as others have mentioned, coming in the door to the smell of freshly baked bread is pretty much heaven.

Relaxing Get-Away

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at your cottage. It's very cute and comfortable. It was nice to have such a well equipped home, having everything we needed. We were a little bummed that there wasn't a fireplace or wood burning stove. Surprising for a mountain home, but I guess I missed that in the details.

We really enjoyed sitting on the deck (in between the rain) and listening to Bailey Creek. The smell of the rain in the woods is amazing!!

Thank you for the fresh baked bread! Really nice touch!

What a lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late to this beautifully appointed cabin home to find the cabin already heated and freshly baked bread with butter and jam waiting for us! The owners obviously take great pride in making this a warm, inviting place to stay and it shows in all the thoughtful details in this vacation home. The cabin is decorated with mountain decor throughout, there is a large fridge, plenty of linens and ice already in the freezer. There is a great selection of movies and books, games and magazines with plenty of cozy spots to curl up and enjoy them in and the large jacuzzi tub is heavenly. Really enjoyed our vacation here!
