Bedrooms 3
Space 1,800 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 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 Lakehead

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.

Perfect location!

This was an ideal home for our getaway with friends and family. Plenty to do for the kids in the game room and a beautiful relaxing deck overlooking the lake for the adults.

Great Spot Near the Lake!

We had a large group that stayed for 3 nights. We felt close to all of our recreation and it had all the amenities we needed!

Great house with great views of the lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an extended weekend with 6 couples. The house is separated nicely so that you can be on the lower level and the people sleeping on the 3rd floor loft won't get woken up. The beds are situated with 2 rooms on the 2nd floor with a Cal King in each and a pullout couch. There are also 2 Queen beds and a futon in the loft. The walk to the lake isn't too bad, the walk back can be a bit of a hike as you have to walk up hill a ways. Mark was very responsive to all of my emails. We would definitely rent this property again.

One thing to note is that there was pretty much NO cell service. The house does have Wi-Fi which was nice, but for those who needed to use their phones they had to drive closer to the freeway.

Owner's Response: Sarah, Thank you for your comments. The somewhat remote location lends itself to satellite reception for all electronic communications. We continue to experiment with various methods/vendors to improve the cellular service you speak of. For future guests, we would like to mention the following to improve your cell connections. "WiFi Calling" This service is branded into many phones now, both Apple and Android types. You may find it in your phone settings. A simple online search can further explain how this simple feature works on most smartphones. No special app is needed. Basically your call is automatically routed through the house internet WiFi. It is all done seamlessly.

Great Shasta Lake House Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful for our sisters get-away. It was spacious, comfortable, clean, quiet, well equipped for cooking, and had a great lake view. The owner has thought of everything, from details before we arrived to all the information we needed during our stay. It's a great place for a weekend or an extended stay. I highly recommend this property, and hope to come back again sometime with my family.

Perfect Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderfully decorated with lots of great little touches throughout. We spent a good amount of time just walking the house and finding lots of great surprises in the décor and use of space.

Plenty of room for kids in the upstairs/loft area (3 beds & a bathroom) making it wonderful for adults to have their own two separate rooms and bathrooms on the main living area. Great layout. In addition, this house has a nice lower level with plenty of playful games, TV w/ Games and controllers, darts, pool table, fire place, etc.

The huge porch was our morning and evening hang out with a good view, plenty of seating and great for cooking. Kitchen had everything.

The house is perfectly balanced for vacation purposes at Lake Shasta. We selected this location due to the easy access to boat dock which is in walking distance. Away for the main busy part of the lake, Slips for your boat are available, but we pulled our boat in and out and simply parked in front of the house where they have a lengthy boat parking area.

We didn't have a single complaint regarding this property.

Due to some last minute changes, we put the owner in a difficult spot regarding a very late arrival and then delays getting off the lake in time to check out. We really didn't mean to make a mess of the schedule and apologized for the inconvenience that we caused the owner and the cleaning crew. However, he could not have been more gracious and fair considering the position we put him in.

This property was beyond our expectations and both of our families have already promised to revisit this exact location next season.

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!
