Welcome to The Healing Place! Before you book, please BE kind, respectful, sorry NO pets or service animals and please read the entire listing. We have 20 magical acres in beautiful rural McCloud with The Dome right on the creek. With the creek as your view, you’ll have privacy and many acres to roam. This is sacred land, and we hold many events here on this property such as CE5, Spirit Photography and Drum circles. We will let you know ahead of time if there will be an event when you book. We usually host them on the new moon and on a weekend. Loads of wildlife roam these lands so be prepared to see bear, coyote, deer, fox and many species of birds including a Heron live down by the creek. Be mindful of not keeping any food in your car and making sure to place it in the fridge inside the dome. We have a medicine wheel, sacred circle in the meadow across the dome, we usually host our CE5 events there. We are 6 miles away from the McCloud reservoir, 15 mins from McCloud Falls, 5 mins from the town of McCloud and 20 mins to Mount Shasta. The Dome sleeps 2 adults, has electric, 2 bed side lamps that charge phones, with a pillow top mattress, soft cozy linens, a fireplace, a kitchen bar with hot water kettle, a french press, decanter with healing waters from the Shasta forest, a dining table set, coat rack, and a hammock. You may choose to place the hammock outside to enjoy, it’s up to you. Please remove your shoes upon entering the dome, you may want to place them on the coat rack to the right of the door rather than leave them outside as it’s safer. We do not have a cook top stove, or microwave so it’s best to plan to eat out. There’s no fires of any kind that we can allow here so no bbq or cooking. We know all the good spots and will gladly share them. Text me if you need anything, I’m happy to help. The Composting toilet is one of the best on the market, called Natures Head. It’s located outside of the dome for privacy in a king camp tent with everything b you’ll need inside. Its super easy to work and believe it or not, not so bad to use. Directions are inside the restroom. The outdoor shower is located near the main home, but built into the forest and private. We like to give guests what we would want to experience, and it turned out pretty fantastic. The hot water lasts 20 mins and heats up fast. Please keep all shower products naturally based as we are eco friendly and holistically based. Soap will be provided as I make them myself. Note! There are bugs, There are wildlife, this is a glamping experience so please know that when you book, you will know what you’re getting. Although this is luxury glamping it’s still glamping! We aren’t able to have ANY fires on the property, none. Can’t make any exceptions, we’re sorry. That means no bbqing, no smoking on the property. This place is meant to be shared, with nature lovers, conscious creators and spiritual wanderers. Welcome.

Cozy Log Cabin Near Lassen Park

1 site · Lodging3 acres · Shingletown, CA
Are you ready to unplug from the world and recharge in nature? This newly built two bedroom, two bath log cabin will help you do just that. You’ll reconnect with love ones since the cabin has NO WIFI but does have a wood burning stove and miles of trails to walk on just outside of the front door. The cabin is conveniently located just minutes from the north entrance of Lassen National Park. For entertainment, I have a TV (no cable)/DVD player with a selection of movies, board games, and reading material including a few books and magazines. There is timber land at the back of the property with plenty of trails to walk or ride a mountain bike (if you bring one). Lassen National Park is a short drive away. Also nearby is lake McCumber. I have a wood burning stove inside that you can use for a fire. Absolutely NO FIRES outside. There is a fire ban in effect, thank you for your cooperation and understanding. I have a propane BBQ outside that you can use, along with a picnic bench and other outside seating. I will provide a selection of tea, hot coco, coffee and oatmeal to get your day started. Be sure to bring food with you since the nearest grocery story is about 9 miles away. I will provide a basket of firewood to use during your stay, but it's a good idea to bring extra since it will go fast. Because you're in the forest, there is limited cell reception so please plan accordingly. I've found that Verizon has some signal while AT&T has none. Since it's meant to get away from it all, not having cell service might be a good thing. :) The master bedroom is on the entire loft floor so there isn't a lock or door that separates the main area downstairs. Just so you're aware. There is a door and lock on the guest bedroom downstairs. All you'll need to bring are your personal items, food for your stay, and extra firewood! Once booked, I will send more helpful tips and information for your stay a week prior to your check in date. Dogs - I allow dogs because I believe they are part of the family, but please notify me if you intend to bring your dog prior to your stay. If there is high wind in the forecast, the electric company, PG&E may turn the power off for safety reasons. They usually notify me a day in advance and I will let you know right away, but I wanted you to know that it might be a possibility during your stay. For Winter Guests: A 4 wheel drive vehicle or car with chains is HIGHLY recommended to travel to the cabin. The main road is paved but there will be snow/ice in the area. The driveway is a slight uphill and is not paved. Please be prepared for snow. ***Approved Shasta County Short Term Rental Permit #STR 20-0013***

Private glamping near Shasta Lake guide

Overview

Spanning 30,000 acres, Northern California’s Shasta Lake is the largest man-made lake in the state. With more than 360 miles of winding and forested shoreline, dotted with hundreds of protected inlets, coves, and bays, it’s a boater’s paradise. Houseboats are especially popular, but all manner of watercraft can be found here, along with numerous boat ramps, marinas, and service docks. Fishing and water sports are also big draws. More than 30 developed, dispersed, and group campgrounds around the lake’s three major arms offer plenty of options for campers to enjoy the water and scenic views of snow-capped Mount Shasta nearby.

Where to go

Sacramento River Arm

With access from Interstate 5, the Sacramento River Arm is home to several private RV parks and more than a half dozen forest service campgrounds. Right by the town of Lakehead, the aptly named Lakeshore East Campground offers sites for tents, RVs, and yurts, while nearby Antlers Campground sits on a bluff overlooking the lake. Several dispersed campgrounds, including Beehive Point, Gregory Beach, and Salt Creek, sit along the shoreline. Boaters can head to the Gooseneck Cove Boat-in Campground, while groups have options at Gregory Creek and Nelson Point.

McCloud River Arm

Right off Interstate 5 and near the access point for the Lake Shasta Caverns, the year-round Bailey Cove Campground is a popular option, and offers its own boat ramp. Enjoy great lake views from the Hirz Bay Campground further up the river. The McCloud River Arm is a great destination for groups, with several group campgrounds located here, including at Hirz Bay, Dekkas Rock, Moore Creek, and Pine Point. Boaters can stay at the Greens Creek Boat-in Campground.

Pit River Arm

The Pit River Arm is home to two of the four boat-in campgrounds on the lake, including Arbuckle Flat and popular Ski Island, which can sometimes be accessed from Mariners Point Group campgrounds when the lake level is low. Just a few miles away from the Jones Valley Boat Ramp, the Lower and Upper Jones Valley campgrounds are great options for boaters, while the Jones Valley Inlet Dispersed Campground lets campers stay along the shoreline.
