Same charming cabin that has received 46 5-star reviews from previous happy renters prior to 2015, now with new owner and decor/remodel upgrades. Two queen beds, one double, can sleep up to 6. The new back yard area with fire pit, waterfall and steps up to creek make for added down-time enjoyment. Same great home and quality vacation rental service - with just a little extra! Also look for my "new" cabin #1002921 open for guests in May 2017!

About Nancy Ekelund
I was born and raised in Redding and my grandparents owned a cabin in nearby Shingletown. My summers as a child were joyfully spent there, and the sounds, smells, and sights associated with the mountains, creeks, and forest are in my blood. After college and my first years working as an optometrist in southern CA, I moved back home to Redding in 1992 where I have a private practice. At the end of 2014, I bought this wonderful cabin which fulfills a long-held dream to be back in the mountains. I then spent several months to rejuvenate it into the type of place I believe anyone could enjoy. I feel blessed to own it and if you should decide to share in my little "get away from it all" cabin, I hope you have an amazing stay. With gratitude, Nancy

Why Nancy Ekelund chose Shingletown
What I especially love about this property is that while some cabins nestled in large pines can get dark and even dreary inside, this home with its 3 large skylights and lighter walls stays "open" and uplifting. All rooms have ceiling fans and plenty of windows as well. The cute creek in the back, the private lake across the way, and the nice meadow/open field adjacent to the lake all make for added fun. Bring a bat and ball or a badminton/volleyball set and burn some great outdoor energy!

Everything you could want in a rental house
This house has been arranged with all the comforts of home. The kitchen is designed for cooking. It is completely outfitted with pots, pans, knives, appliances - even Christmas cookie cutters! The beds are comfortable and the showers are hot.
We were fortunate to have snow for Christmas on this visit. The wood burning stove created a warm and cozy place to relax after hiking in the cold.
Nancy provided us with a Christmas tree (after thoughtfully asking if we desired one). And, she also wrapped a present specifically for the child with us!
Five of five stars all the way around!
Super cozy and homey! Loved the kitchen!
This was an amazing place to stay! Super comfy cabin feel. Kitchen and bar area were awesome! Thanks Nancy!!!!
Got everything you need
Nancy is nice and responsive.
This is a great place to stay.
This is such a lovely cabin. It is so homey and welcoming. She has thought of everything down to the smallest detail. We would happily recommend this to anyone.
Very nice place!!
Cozy, Comfortable and Convenient!
This cozy mountain cabin offered a very comfortable home-base for our adventures in Lassen, Burney Falls and Hat Creek. We are 2 couples with 2 dogs, and the separation of space in the bedroom areas created a nice privacy yet the kitchen/dining/living rooms provided a wonderful gathering space. Beds are comfortable and the shower made it difficult to exit! Outside, we enjoyed the fire pit in the cool mornings while having coffee and again in the evening after dinner while listening to the quiet and gazing at the stars. Plus, the trails across the street at the Camp were an easy place to walk our dogs. Lassen is underrated - we can't say how much we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the park and surrounding area including of course, the cabin! Thanks, Nancy, for all your wonderful touches including a generous welcoming basket filled with all kinds of treats! We hope to return again soon :)
Located in the small town of Viola at 4300 ft. elevation, this charming cabin is just minutes from beautiful Lassen Volcanic National Park. The Park is a remarkable place to visit with its relatively easy hike to the summit, or a visit to the hot springs, the visitor center, lakes, museum, and its many other attractions.
Just across from the cabin is Bailey Creek with its stock of trout, and Hat Creek, loaded with native trout, is just 20 minutes away. Lake McCumber, Manzanita Lake, and Grace and Nora Lakes are close by as well.
We have wineries within 20 minutes, Burney Falls about an hour away, and the Sundial Bridge with Turtle Bay Exploration Park in the town of Redding just 45 minutes from the cabin. Turtle Bay is well worth a day trip - especially if children are visiting.
Winter months in the mountains can be majestic - and as cozy and curled up or as adventurous as one desires. Not only is there sledding, cross country, and snowshoeing in our area, but Mount Shasta is available for downhill/boarding roughly an hour and a half away.
