Family lake house next to Sugarloaf Marina with a huge deck, views & game room

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Enjoy views of the lake through the trees from all over this multi level fun house. Two stories of solid windows look out on to the deck in the trees and the lake beyond the street in front of the house. Walk to the marina and hop on your boat (slips, houseboats, fishing and ski boats can be rented through marina), or trailer and launch your boat or skis here at uncrowded and friendly Sugarloaf or one of the other nearby launches. There's plenty of parking for your water toys at this ideally situated house. Only 7 minutes from the I-5, you'll feel a world away amongst the trees and water and wildlife. Come home to central air conditioning and heating. Shower or bathe in one of the three newly renovated bathrooms. Prepare your meals with those gathering in the adjoining living area while looking out onto the huge deck. Perhaps you'd rather grill from this 700 square foot, lighted, wraparound deck, then sit down at one of the two full size patio tables to enjoy and relax. Dine under the shade of the big oak trees during the day or wait until its dark and do some long awaited stargazing.

There is room for everybody to get a good nights rest with sleeping for 12 that includes 2 Cal Kings, and four queens. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 carports and the game room. Give those that aren't ready to sit down, something to do here on their own floor entirely devoted to playing. Pool table, dart board, board games and a wall mounted flat screen for electronic gamers. There is also a big screen in the main living area for watching satellite T.V., Pay Per View and movies on DVD. Wi-Fi via satellite. Resorts, market and eating establishments only a few minutes from the house. Come stay at one of the few rental homes available this close to Lake Shasta.

About Mark Parker

Our extended family has been in the north state for decades after relocating from southern California. We often played on Shasta Lake during the day, falling in love with this magnificent lake and natural surroundings. We never wanted the day to end!

Mark Parker purchased this house in 2009

Why Mark Parker chose Shasta Cascade

Our family and friends finally stayed in a rental house in Lakehead for a few days and immediately recognized the value of a multi day stay near the lake. A few years later through perseverance and patience, we were able to find a property best suited for families to enjoy time both on and off the water.

What makes this house unique

Home is ideally situated near Marina and lake. Home has lake views. Open design allows people to share kitchen, dining area, living room and deck as one large space. Entire and separate floor devoted to game room.

Shasta Lake is rated #1 in the world for wake boarding and water skiers. ("Top Ten Lakes To Wakeboard", 2014.} Salt Creek waterski area is directly out of Sugarloaf marina which is steps away from the house.

Sugarloaf Marina is located on the deep part of the largest lake arm and enjoys several docks, marina store and launches including a low water launch.

Minutes to eating and drinking establishments and store.

Family lake house next to Sugarloaf Marina with a huge deck, views & game room
average rating of 5.0 based on 22 reviews

Property is in a perfect location with a view of the lake.

  • 5 of 5

The lake house is decorated with the perfect cabin feeling and is very clean. Everything you need for cooking, relaxing, and having fun is there. We moored our boat at Sugarloaf Marina and could see the lake and the marina from the deck of the house. There were deer by the house every evening for us to watch while BBQing. It was a perfect vacation stay!

July 2017 Week Long Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year with Mark's Chalet and this was our most enjoyable year. Weather was warm, lake was full and 83-88 at surface level. The Chalet has a well stocked kitchen, bedrooms have plenty of linen and pillows for the pillow monsters. TV and Wifi work well and most important the A/C works well throughout the structure. Looking forward to next year.

Clean, comfortable and good location

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the attention to detail; the kitchen was outfitted nicely; plenty of towels, clean bathrooms, light switches labeled, media devices easy to use and good communication with the owner. We had lots of fun playing pool, boating on Shasta Lake, completing a puzzle and grilling burgers. It's a great place to make family memories and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

Indeed this property does have the ideal floor plan for a multi family lake house. And surely you will appreciate the “natural” mood inspired by the warm wood and stone decor and other finishing touches. You will even agree that proper attention was given to striking that perfect balance between fun, comfort and relaxation.

But it's the outdoors that makes this the place to be. Steps to the best lake we have ever been on for playing on the water. Watersports from serious to recreational, fishing, paddling, swimming and boating of all kinds. Sugarloaf Marina is right there (walk to it, see it from the house) and has everything you need for boating. Uncrowded launches, houseboat and small boat rentals, dock rentals, marina store and fuel on the water. Local off road vehicle access only a few miles in either direction. Chappie Shasta OHV park isn't far, at the base of Shasta Dam. Hiking and biking trails can be found scattered in all directions. During those times you choose to just wind down, there are lake and mountain views, wildlife watching and restaurants and bars only a few miles away. While on extended stays you might just drive a little over a half hour into Redding for theaters, bowling alleys, shopping malls, stocking up on groceries, etc. Of course the nearby Lakeshore Villa Market is friendly and well stocked for just about everything you will need or want. The Shasta Caverns are worth looking at and can be accessed by boat or car. Every arm of the lake can be explored from Sugarloaf. You can see it all and get back home the same day. We usually choose one arm or the other for a day and maybe another a different day. A designated water ski/board area is at Salt Creek Inlet just across the lake from the house and Sugarloaf. We have done ALL the above and have no complaints! Ask us about any of it. Its all really fun!
