A native of Redding. I enjoy family time, gardening and travel. I purchased this home as a weekend retreat. To enjoy the cooler summer weather, to rest and relax. I work as a Nurse Practitioner at Planned Parenthood in Redding.

At the door to Lassen National Park. This is a great area to explore or just relax. Fishing, wine tasting, hiking, snowmobiling and Eskimo Hill are a few of the local activities.
This Charming Log Home is surrounded by lots of tall pine trees. Situated at the end of a quiet cul de sac this home offers privacy and seclusion. Rock BBQ, children's play area. Enjoy the cool nights during the summer and the possibility of snow in the winter. The area abounds with recreation. Hike to the top of Mt. Lassen, go wine tasting at the nearby wineries, fish at Hat Creek.
I am trying to get back into the swing of life after such a wonderful stay… I am trying to open this to give my remarks but it will not let me so hoping you get this..
Your cabin was absolutely awesome… What a beautiful place… So quiet and it had everything we needed to prepare meals/cook outs for the family. The kids enjoyed exploring your yard alone, not to mention Lassen having snow in July! The setting was awesome so quiet and homey…. We could have just moved right in and never looked back…. Thank you for having such a wonderful place an sharing it..
We arrived late in the day and found the place very cosy and welcoming. Plenty of couches and sitting areas, great kitchen area with open space. The feeling of being in a log cabin was very pleasing.
Showers, bathrooms, and other amenities, and the rest of the cabin were clean and pleasing.
We recommend the cabin near Shingletown.
overall stay was good. home was in good condition, with good kitchen and all that. quiet and as advertised, my only complain is with the maintenance of the unit. lights in the front porch by the main door entrance werent working, lights in the parking space werent working, lights at the back porch were very dim at best. there are lights installed but they just don't work; we visited this home when there was a bear and mountain lion alert in lassen national park, this place is around 12 miles or so away from it; we were traveling with small dogs and it gets very dark after sunset; not having adequate lighting was a disappointment. Also, unfortunately, we were traveling during hot days, we only found 1 small table fan, just one; in the entire house.
I stayed at this home will working in the area. The home was comfortable and well furnished. The only problem I encountered was not being able to get the dvd player to work on the tv. I don't know if someone moved some wire or what happened , but I could not get it working. No bid deal since I did not have much down time. I would recommend this to anyone needing a reasonably priced comfortable place to stay.
I found it is spacious, has nice kitchen and dining area. It has good parking area, woods around. This is my first stay at a log home & hence found it interesting. There were no big surprises.
Some things we didn't like:
- We spent a lot of time getting the propane based heaters work, but were no successful. We had a figure out that an electric heater was kept inside a bedroom closet in ground floor.
- There was an attached home just behind this home, which caught me by surprise. I was expecting just this home in a big lot. May be it is written somewhere in the VRBO property webpage I might have overlooked.
- Wifi password was not found in the instruction booklet. There was no cell phone service at the home for us to call the owner for help. It could have been helpful for us to research about local places.
- The TV stopped worked after we pressed some button & we couldn't get it working again because it seemed like a very old model (probably from 1990s). So, we didn't have the TV for kids for entire stay even though there was some DVD collection in the home.
- We couldn't find soaps in bathrooms.
Hope this helps.
We enjoyed the proximity to Lassen Volcanic National Park that this cabin offered. We found the kitchen to be well equipped and we enjoyed barbecuing in the evenings. We were, however, disappointed in several "amenities" that were not actually provided or available.
The listing states that a washing machine, clothes dryer, and internet are provided. We found none of these. The property owner offered the use of her long term tenant's wifi, but the signal is only strong enough to receive email in the farthest back bedroom of the house. There is no wifi in the remainder of the house. The closest wifi is 5 miles away in the town of Shingletown at the library.
I will also note for future renters that there is no cell phone signal in the house (cellular or data), nor is there a landline in case of emergencies. If you are in need of keeping in touch with business colleagues or friends and family members while on your vacation, this is not the house for you.
The two downstairs bedrooms with the double beds are very small, suitable for children or perhaps a single small adult. I would not advise these rooms for adult couples.
I did not see previous reviewers mention the lack of broadcast TV, so I will mention it for the benefit of future renters. While I understand the benefits of being able to completely get away from it all, we were disappointed that we were not able to watch the Olympic games during our visit. If you are renting this property you should bring your own DVD's or VHS tapes.
The property would be greatly improved by upgrading the mattresses, providing an actual internet wifi connection, and providing at least basic broadcast TV.
Unexpectedly close to Shasta. Super close to Lassen, Lake McCumbre, gas and pizza.
Also unexpected bonus - chickens running aound.
No surprises, easy, clean, comfortable.
