July 2020 Update
Hello Past and Future Guests,
Although difficult times for all of us with the impact of the Corona Virus over the past several months, we wanted to let you know what we are doing about it at our three lakefront homes at the Shasta Lakeshore Retreat. Although a clean home for our guests have always been a priority (see our reviews on the web site), we are making sure our cleaning team takes extra measures to minimize any chance of any infection as the health of our guests, cleaning crew and our family is our top priority.
We saw many large group/multi family reservations canceled in March & April. We elected to provide full refunds to these groups. Then in May we started booking last minute getaways to observe the “stay at home” order in while in the mountains with all the space and fresh air.
Most of our guests have kept their Summer vacations since our homes are likely some of the safest places to be and families wanted an escape. We do offer a great place without the crowds and driving distance for most of our guests. When they arrive, they have a very clean home that offers a secluded and peaceful location with the great fresh mountain air….and a great lake to enjoy which never closed.
Depending on the time of the year and weather we offer so many things that allow you to get out of the house and still avoid any crowds. This includes hikes, walks, bike rides, crowd free sightseeing, drives to the snow, the best lake for boating/water sports and much more. At the home we offer HD TV with Netflix and DirectTV, fireplaces/stoves, Kayaks, Paddle Boards, a Floating Island in the cove behind homes, corn hole games, many board games, hot tub, heat lamps, gas fir pits, Gas BBQ, Hammocks and awesome decks and windows that look out at the wonder lake and mountains. What a great way to turn this crisis lock down into a real vacation.
Part of our family took advantage of this time by staying an extended period of time in one of the homes rather than in the crazy San Francisco Bay area where people were getting rude and selfish. You will not see that up here in the mountains by the lake.
If you are considering canceling your vacation because you still have concerns, there is a full refund if outside 60 days of arrival. If you are within the 60 day window, demand remains very high as of now for the summer months and we will try to re-book it for you. If we re-book, we will refund your money up to the amount we are able to get in the re-booking. We have a wait list of interested customers for mid summer dates. Again, we will do what we can to get someone else to book so we can offer a full or partial refund. The more time you give us, the better chance of a refund.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
Please stay safe.
