The Mt. Shasta Forest Retreat is a roomy ground-floor studio apartment with private entry, with a spectacular view of Mt. Shasta, in a beautiful and quiet forest setting on 5 acres of certified wildlife habitat. It is furnished with a deluxe queen bed, antiques & quality furniture. Complimentary wine, breakfast snacks, Peet’s coffee and high-speed Internet are provided. 42" flat screen TV to stream movies. Come enjoy the beautiful view, superior amenities and the peace & serenity of the forest!
The apartment is convenient to everything, but offers the peace and serenity of the woods. Come enjoy the beautiful trees and abundant wildlife, including many birds, squirrels, rabbits, deer, with occasional visits from foxes, bobcats, coyotes, and even bears. At night, you'll experience the soft voices of the forest and the wind in the trees, with incredible starry skies and the moon rising over Mt. Shasta.
It offers many fine features. Relax in luxurious comfort and enjoy an excellent night’s sleep in the newer euro pillow-top, queen-sized bed of the type found in world-class hotels. You’ll appreciate our “small” extra touches, like 300-thread count all-cotton sheets, hypoallergenic pillows, hand-stitched quilting, and genuine antique nightstands.
Many other top-quality conveniences will make your stay comfortable and pleasant. There is a mini-refrigerator with separate freezer, a microwave oven, a bagel toaster and a coffee & tea maker with hot water dispenser. You'll be responsible for your own meals during your stay, but we provide complimentary Peet’s gourmet coffee, tea, hot chocolate, Quaker oatmeal, Kellogg's cereals, etc. Dishware and silverware are provided. Get your visit off to a great start with a complimentary bottle of wine (your choice of red or white) and enjoy a glass or two while you marvel at your incredible view of the mountain and plan your activities. There’s an excellent wall-mounted 42” flat screen TV. There is no regular TV reception, but you can stream movies from Netflix, Amazon, etc. with Chromecast (if you are not familiar with Chromecast you may wish to install it on your device and familiarize yourself with it before you arrive) or the HDMI input (we provide adapters for most devices or you can bring your own). You are welcome to bring your own DVDs to play in the DVD player, too. Complimentary high-speed wireless Internet is provided. The private, clean full bath in the apartment features a separate stall shower and fresh cotton towels.
The property is located on a well-maintained road just a couple of miles off I-5, with easy on/off. We have ample parking with room for even large boats or RVs (if you have a boat or RV you will need to leave it in our front parking lot and walk back approximately 40 yards to the apartment).

Your hosts Kathryn and Steve are always respectful of your privacy, but we are available any time to assist with anything to make your stay wonderful and special--whether restaurant recommendations or information on the many fun things to do in this area. Please note: if you arrive after 6PM (or while we are not home or very busy) we may not be out to greet you, but you will be able to "check yourselves in" (and let yourselves into the apartment) using the "late arrival" instructions we will send you when you make your reservation.
Please note: We try to be good custodians of the forest. Fire is a real danger, here in the forest, and our house rules specify no open fires, cooking or smoking anywhere on the property. We also ask that you drive very slowly down our driveway (both day and night) and be very careful of all wildlife large and small. Thank you.

NO LOUD MUSIC OR OTHER SOUNDS at any time. This forest is a quiet, peaceful area. We're sorry but we cannot host guests with toddlers and children under 12. Infants may be OK--please check with us. PLEASE LIMIT SHOWERS TO ABOUT 5 MINUTES, AND PLEASE DON'T FLUSH ANYTHING DOWN THE TOILET EXCEPT TOILET PAPER (no paper towels, diapers, feminine hygiene products, etc.).

No "hacking" or illegal activity of any kind. NO HUNTING OR SHOOTING anywhere on property. Thank you for helping us protect our guests and property.
Our home is an easy 10 minute drive from the town of Mt Shasta, close to the Mountain, where its view dominates the skyline. We live and work here, enjoying the peace and quiet with the wildlife. We find this the perfect base for experiencing all that the area has to offer.
Most of our guests want their privacy and we are very respectful of this. If you arrive during our regular daytime hours, we'll be glad to meet you and say hello. After that, we'll stay out of your way and out of your hair. If you need us, we're here, just give us a call. But otherwise we will let you alone to enjoy your stay.
