All three options reward hikers and bikers with an AMAZING view of Mt. Shasta!

After your hike or ride, take a nap in the oversized hammock on our spacious deck and wait for nightfall to go stargazing! Wildlife is plentiful in the area and becomes part of your extended family during your stay.

At night, leave the windows open and listen to the nearby gurgling brook!

Located 4 hours north of San Francisco, and 4 hours south of Eugene, the property is a 15 minute drive from I-5 in the historic old mill town of McCloud, CA. This is an outdoor-lovers dream with so much so see and do nearby! Alternatively, you can settle in a get cozy with a great book by the fire. Whatever style of vacation you choose, Eagle's Rest is sure to provide a magical setting!

Or you can forget all of that and just take a long soak in our Victorian style tub followed by a good book and a glass of wine in front of the wood burning stove!

The Eagle's Rest is our 2nd home and we are excited to share it with you. Come see the night sky like you haven't seen it before, enjoy the rugged outdoors, all with the comforts and amenities of your own home!

About Mt. Shasta Vacation Rentals

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! We purchased this property in 2012 as a future retirement home after falling in love with the town of McCloud and the entire Mt. Shasta area. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Mt. Shasta Vacation Rentals purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why Mt. Shasta Vacation Rentals chose Shasta Cascade

As a former military brat and current businessman who travels extensively for work, I have visited many unique and exciting locations. That said, nothing compares to this property when you're ready to 'get away from it all' and simply get back to a slower, more relaxed lifestyle.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Do as much or as little as you'd like during your stay. Whatever your ideal vacation might be: a long soak in our victorian style tub, reading a great book in the hammock or by the fire, gearing up to hike the Crags or climb Mt. Shasta, enjoying Lake McCloud or simply spending quality family time in the great outdoors, the Eagle's Rest offers all of that and more, directly at your doorstep!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Jeff, Great house. Wonderful for families. Great location. The beds are comfortable and sheets/towels are clean. Thanks for the fresh bread and chocolate--a nice treat. The directions provided from the management company were not specific enough. However once we found it, it's easy to find again and we definitely would like to come back soon. Are you available in the winter? Will definitely recommend your home to friends/family. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

Great ski weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Eagle's Rest is a large, unique home, great for family gatherings. We (eight adults and six kids) stayed for a long ski weekend and had a great time. The home has good access to Mt Shasta and McCloud. It is located off a dirt road, which concerned us at first given a forecast for a rainy weekend, but this didn't turn out to be a problem. The house has a ping pong table, which was a big hit with the kids.

Comfortable and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

This house is huge, and gorgeous. All 18 of us were very comfortable with the large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (1 on each floor, and all 3 had a shower, and there was always enough hot water and towels), and the expansive dining, living, and game room areas. We took 12 kids skiing every day, and loved coming "home" to the welcoming, warm house! The dryer was a life-saver. The kids also got to play on sleds in the snow, and the game room with ping-pong table was a definite hit. We were mostly inside, so appreciated the 2 TVs and the internet. Also, there were lots of games, cards, and books. The kitchen was more than adequate. The lower level floor has a separate heater than the top floor & loft, so everyone was comfortable. Had we decided to use the wood stove, plenty of wood was available. This was a very quiet, remote area, very private, and yet convenient. Even in inclement weather, it only took about 20-25 minutes to drive to the parking lot of the ski park. Thank you Eagles Rest!

Beautiful location, wonderful home

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful long-weekend retreat at Eagle's Rest. Wi-Fi was pretty dodgy -- but who needs wi-fi on vacation? Not really enough kindling -- but it was fun splitting logs and finding sticks to make our own. The ping-pong table was great fun, Mt Shasta was only 20 minutes away, and we spent hours enjoying the sun on the deck. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend. Thanks Eagle's Rest! We've already recommended it to others!

All Our Kids Under One Roof Again!

  • 5 of 5

It couldn't have been a more perfect home and location for our family snow getaway. With four adult children, their spouses and children, we had plenty of room for sleeping, eating meals and playing board games together, and still there was room to spread out. The slope next to the cabin was perfect for tobogganing, the forest was inviting to explore, and everywhere you looked was the perfect photo op for individual and group family photos. We found the cabin very clean, furnishings very comfortable, beautiful custom home and easy to fill with love, laughter and lasting memories. It was far enough from town to feel like we had our very own piece of heaven, yet close enough to run to the store for butter, and only a 20 minute drive to go snowboarding at Mt Shasta. We also enjoyed exploring the McCloud Falls, just a few minutes down the road. Best family vacation in a long time! We'd love to do it all again and have already recommended Eagles Rest to our friends. Thank you, for the use of your gorgeous custom home! The Powells

Amazing secluded cabin on great property. A drive away to many beautiful places to explore

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cabin in June with friends and all of us couldn't recommend it more. I have family in McCloud so I went there once a year as a kid and was excited to take my friends for the first time as a lot of us had 30th birthdays in June to celebrate. Short version if you don't want to read on: if you're staying in mccloud with 8 or more people, this is a no brainer, just book it now. Okay, full review below.

We fit the max amount of people allowed comfortably (I forget how many we had because trip was 5 months ago. Whatever the owners max persons allowed is, that's how many we had staying there.) And if someone extra would've had to stay the night to avoid driving home then we definitely could have made room for them as well. The bedrooms and bathrooms are on 3 separate stories so people can get ready or shower upstairs and downstairs and everyone else is hanging in the living room on the main floor. We never felt cramped for space because you're hanging outside on the deck most of the time anyways.

The property is as easy as you can hope to get to given how secluded it is. Off the main 89 highway coming into McCloud from the 5, you take a right at the main intersection. Taking a left will get you into the town of McCloud with a couple restaurants, some stores, and a pretty big grocery store selling all the essentials. After taking the right at the gas station you drive about 5 minutes past the golf course and turn onto a smaller paved road. About 5 minutes on that road and then you hit a dirt road and go another 5 on that past other people's properties. The road ends and you're at Eagle's Rest. So about 15 minute drive outside of town, easily worth it given the remote location.

The place inside is awesome, the rooms aren't huge but beds are comfy and good amount of storage space. We cooked multiple meals in the kitchen and had plenty of room to operate. The basketball hoop and ping pong table were in constant use.

The star gazing was amazing, we had drinks outside at sunset, ate breakfast outside, did everything we could out on the deck. The views from the property are amazing and you can't hear anything but a stream. Perfectly refreshing to enjoy with friends.

We drove down to Lower falls and hiked to upper one day, rented a 20 person boat on Lake Shasta one day, and hung out at Lake Siskiyou one day. All were so freaking fun, highly recommended. Drive times from cabin consistent with google maps. I'm out of review space, bye

One of the best vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed at the Eagles Rest cabin for a week in July. The vacation turned out to be one of our favorite of all time. Jeff & Cindy provided excellent recommendations on the area's best activities. We really enjoyed hiking Mt Shasta, jumping from "The Falls", swimming in McCloud reservoir, and visiting Lake Shasta. The spacious cabin was exceptionally clean and welcoming. We loved the rustic feel but were spoiled by all of the excellent amenities. The trails directly behind the cabin are incredible with many rewarding views of the surrounding natural beauty. The cabin feels so perfectly detached from everything, but town of Shasta is only about 10 minutes away and has all of the stores and restaurants needed. McCloud is even closer- about 3 miles away with gas, food, groceries, ice cream, pizza, liquor, golf, etc. This location offers a perfect opportunity to stay active all day or be happy doing nothing at all. We felt completely safe and comfortable every minute. Our family has traveled to many other locations, but Eagles Rest and Shasta will certainly be remembered as one of the best ever!
