Over two decades of cherished family vacations at Shasta Lake brought us to a momentous decision in 2015. We found our hearts intertwined with a beautiful home, now affectionately known as Shasta Lakeshore Retreat #1. Our love for this retreat led us to invest and enhance it, but since we couldn’t be there more than a few times a month, we decided to share this exceptional haven with fellow travelers. This decision bore fruit, and our home quickly became one of the most sought-after vacation rental homes on Shasta Lake.

Inspired by our first success, we acquired the neighboring, even larger home, creating Retreat #2. In 2017, we took on a significant remodeling project, transforming this home into a lake inspiring getaway for all.

The legacy continued when our two sons purchased a fantastic lakefront home on the same street in 2019. By May 2020, Retreat #3 became available to guests. Managed with the same love and care as Retreat #1 and #2, it has won the hearts of many travelers.

The year 2021 marked the addition of Retreat #4, followed by #5 and #6 in April 2022. June 2022 saw the inclusion of Retreat #7 and #8. In May 2023, Retreat #9 joined our collection. Retreat #10, joined in October 2023 followed by #11, #12, #13, & #14 in February 2024.  Demand for our outreach and 2x-4x revenue per home drives an ever increasing interest in our services. For many areas, the days of counting on Airbnb and VRBO alone are over.  All of these homes meet the exacting standards that have become synonymous with the Shasta Lakeshore Retreat experience. Whether it’s the lakefront charm of Retreat #4 or the picturesque views from Retreat #5, there’s something for everyone.

Initially we were only focused on the Sugarloaf area of Lakehead, but in 2022 we started our expansion to other highly desired parts of Lakehead starting with Retreat #8 then followed by Retreat 11, and 14.

We are open to expanding our collection in these four areas around the lake, adding more homes if they meet our standards and if the owners are as easy to work with as our current friends and neighbors. Our commitment to quality is affirmed by our guests, the high percentage of returning visitors, and over 700 five-star reviews. Our objective is to ensure you have one of the best vacations of your life at the Shasta Lakeshore Retreat.

If you’re a dedicated house boater, we encourage you to try something different. Our homes offer the beauty of being on or near the water and provide more space, comfort, and amenities. Come stay at our Shasta Vacation Rental Homes, and discover the ideal combination of freedom and comfort.

We don’t stop at providing the perfect vacation homes; we also strive to offer comprehensive information about the Shasta area, benefiting all visitors to this remarkable region. Whether you stay with us or not, our website serves as a valuable resource with up to 35,000 visitors a month providing information on the entire area.
