Great place to stay in Mc Cloud

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Joe's home. We love the place,

very roomy, quiet and set up with all the essential kitchen items.

We 4 women have an annual ski trip get together to Shasta, and this place fits the bill perfectly for us. We will be back....

Our trip to McCloud was a fun filled yet relaxing time. The cabin had all the amenities we needed. The place was clean and perfect place to relax after skiing and sledding with the kids. Thank you!!

Clean, peaceful winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay here over New Years. The property is large and was covered in snow, as we had hoped. The house was clean, spacious and well equipped. Joe emailed us weeks in advance with the property details and also called the day before to let us know everything was ready for us. Great rental, especially for those interested in skiing/boarding Mt Shasta.

Beautiful and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

As it turns out, during our stay, we had one of the rainiest weekends for a long time. So you want a place where you feel really happy to be able to be inside. This is one of those places. The house itself is a little quirky, but not in a distracting way. The main area you see in the pictures is every bit as beautiful as it looks: the living area-kitchen-dining area is one big room. Very sweet and comfie. There were just 2 of us, but the room is arranged that different small groups could be doing their own thing: watching TV or cooking or reading. The house was very clean. It is surrounded by some huge trees and it feels very secluded yet safe. There are homes nearby but they are far enough away you cannot see or notice them. Wonderfully quiet. Nice area to walk your pooch if it is raining too much to go far for a hike - although there is very excellent hiking nearby. And, how can you really beat being at the foot of Mt Shasta?? Even if you can't see it :- }

We rec it and we definitely consider staying again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Sorry the weather didn't cooperate. I hope you will come back to the Mt. Shasta area soon. Thank you also for recognizing the excellent cleanliness, comfort, and preparedness of the property. Of course, a lot of work goes into maintaining high standards, and we are very proud of always keeping things that way. In light of the bad weather, please accept a "free day" from our family on your next booking of Shasta Pines. Just remind us of your "free night" when you book. Very Best Wishes,

Mt Shasta great rental

  • 5 of 5

Six guys who have been going fishing at McCloud / Mt Shasta for 30 years moved up from a run down fishing cabin to this very nice home.... what a great decision. The great room/kitchen area is a real comfortable area to all visit during cooking, lounging or prepping for fishing. Sleeping provisions great, and the one that does most of the cooking (me), loved the full kitchen with all the counter space and appliances. I highly recommend this property and we are already booked for a second week next year.

Clean, quiet, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Shasta Pines is a gem in the laid-back and friendly McCloud area. Homeowner Joe is very responsive and helpful. Big pines surround the house though allow enough open space to view the magnificent stars at night. It is located in a great rural neighborhood, very low-key while accessible to town in just a few minutes. First trip to Shasta and a great spot. Hope to return!
