Hat Creek Retreat is lovely mountain home located in the picturesque Inter-Mountain area located in the north-eastern tip of Shasta County. Cassel sits at 3200 feet so it has the allure of all the seasons: sun in the summer and snow in the winter.

We have outfitted our home with all the comforts you might need coupled with a warm inviting atmosphere to embrace the entire family!

Our recent remodel makes this house a mountain showcase you won’t want to miss.

Keywords: Located in Cassel, right on Hat Creek, this recently remodeled home sleeps up to six. Relax on the back deck and enjoy the beautiful back yard in the shadow of Burney Mountain! Take a relaxing dip in the pool or walk out the back gate to fish Cassel Forebay. This mountain home is inviting, warm and fully stocked for your comfort!

Great fun for families. Something for kids of all ages. Want to golf? Take a quick 15 minute drive and golf in Fall River. Interested in the out of doors? How about spending the day hiking or boating and swimming at McArthur Burney Falls State Park! After a day of fun, whatever your passion, you can head home, relax with a cold beverage and drink in the view of Burney Mountain while you enjoy all the creature comforts of home. We are close enough for a day trip to McCloud or Yreka for a train ride in McCloud or Yreka. How about exploring the Shasta Caverns or walk on the wild side and jump into the Falls at McCloud. Don't miss the best kept secret of the Intermountain region. This special area has it all.

About Ann Morgan James

My 17 year old son Jack and I are so very excited to have this property. It was a family get away and when my husband decided to leave the family we were worried we could not keep the house...but we did and we could not be more thrilled!

We are both published authors. My title is How to Raise a Millionaire and Jack's is How to Let your Parents Raise a Millionaire. When you stay at the house, you can check out the house copy of the books! :-)

We are excited about our books. How to Raise a Millionaire is the ultimate parent’s guide to increasing confidence and growing bully-proof self esteem in any kid.

My book provides simple everyday tips and a unique action plan to teach my six millionaire skills you need to teach your kids so they can imagine and live the life of their dreams!!

Jack's book is the kid's companion piece to my book and is written from one kid to another. His book helps kids see the benefits of starting their own business!

We are a mother and son team on a mission. We want to fill the world with kid entrepreneurs.

If you have a kid and you want to tap into every ounce of potential your kid, help them start a business. Read our books, we'll show you how! It so simple it criminal!

Ann Morgan James purchased this house in 1999

Why Ann Morgan James chose Cassel

We originally bought this home just before our son was born. We actually did the final walk through about 3 weeks before he was born! The first moment we saw it, we knew we had to have it.

It was a place to get away and fish, but we quickly fell in love with the area. The people, the weather, the surroundings, the activities, it is just the whole package! When we came to a fork in the road a year and a half ago (husband asked for a divorce), it was Jack who insisted I not sell the house. This brought me to the decision to rent it out as a vacation home so others could enjoy it just like us!

Renting our home to others allows us to keep our home and that is important! So Thank You from the bottom of my heart and the bottom of Jack's. You are helping us keep our special home.

What makes this house unique

Cassel is a small lazy mountain town. It offers the ease of country living with some of the best outdoor activities around. But more than the fishing, hiking and mountain air it offers peace.

Our home sits in the shadow of Burney Mountain -- whether you are in the living room, the kitchen, the dining room, the master bedroom or relaxing on the back porch, you are surrounded by the magnificent view of one of nature’s creations. The peace and calm this home offers to its guests invites you to relax and revive.

Cassel Castle

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Hat Creek home of Ann and Jack. It was once again a perfect fit for our family of four plus two other in-laws. The whole experience was smooth and painless from booking through to check-out. Ann has done an amazing job leaving very detailed yet simple instructions for just about everything you'll need for a wonderful stay. I would recommend it to anyone.

Always Enjoy

  • 4 of 5

This is our third visit. We always enjoy our stay. Great place to relax after a great day of fishing. Lots of room in the well stocked kitchen. We appreciate all the coffee mugs and glasses. It's great we aren't washing after every use. Living room is comfortable. Because weather was cooler, didn't spend time outside. I do remember having lunch by the pool during our summer stay. Will be returning....

Super dog friendly and perfect location for our adventures.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived real late at night. No problems getting in to the house. Everything was ready for us just to go to sleep. When we got up the next day we could see finally what a beautiful home and yard it was. We didn't end up using pool despite the hot temperatures Bc we were exploring Lassen National Park. Great place to have dinner with family. Dogs loved the yard. And super Glad there was dog blankets Bc they enjoyed snuggle time on the sofa. Anne was super responsive and quick to any questions we had. And great sense of humor. Enjoyed talking with her. Would recommend. :).

Just what the Dr. Ordered

  • 5 of 5

Increase your fish intake lol... seriously this is a gem. I love this area and have always had a hard time looking for a rental that looked nice enough for a family. This place is clean, comfortable and ideal for relaxing and enjoying all the great things to see and do in the surrounding area. I took a buddy up who wanted to learn how to fly fish. I had him hooking into fish on day one at the cassel forebay. Wonderful place! Owner is very responsive and is very nice. Will definitely be planning a future stay at the Hat Creek Retreat.

Lovely Home!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 17 yo daughter and I all stayed in this home for 3 days in August. We had a fantastic time. The upstairs master suite is huge It's got a sliding glass door that opens to a balcony, which was perfect for late night star gazing! The suite's bathroom has a really big tub, too. I was bummed that the jets were out of service during our stay, but even with that, it was a great place to relax after a long day of fishing, fishing, fishing!

This house is truly dog friendly. There's helpful little pet accessories scattered through the home (ex. a dog's water bowl near the back door). I wish I'd realized this prior to our trip, I definitely would have brought my little pooch! Even though the place is set up for pets, it doesn't look like a dog's ever been there (no fur, no smell--nada).

About the only downside to this home was the entertainment center. It would have been nice to be able to listen to our music while we were making use of the place's bbq outside. There were nice speakers mounted in the back, but the stereo was only an old receiver and a cassette player that wasn't hooked up. It was a small thing, though, and the house was great even without it.

My family definitely enjoyed this house and we would love to stay here again. :)

Lovely home fit for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ann for letting us stay, you have a lovely home. We are a family of 6 age ranges from 5 -65 and everyone enjoyed their stay. Kids Loved the pool, they learned what a VCR/VHS is (good history lesson lol) grandparents loved the quiet peaceful views (esp grandpa) grandma loved the many cooking utensils fully equipped kitchen. The house has AC plenty of board games fishing very close by, everything u need to have a great family time! I would definitely recommend this house to a family that's wants to get away to a quiet peaceful retreat. Looking forward to revisiting!

Regards,

Carmen Torres-Busbee
