Forest Springs is 160 acres in far northern California, surrounded by Shasta National Forest, near lakes and hot springs, with many shady hiking trails in the varied forest on our property, along our creek and to our small lake. In season, we have a splash pool in where guests like to relax in the afternoon. There is a doggie pool for the doggies, and of course they also enjoy our creek and lake. Dogs are welcome off leash! Some of our trails lead into the National Forest.
From the pavement, we are at the end of a 1 1/2 mile decent gravel road, no 4-wheel drive needed. We have mostly gently rolling terrain with 2 hills, elevation about 2500’
Off the property but nearby are hot springs, swimming holes, 2 larger lakes for boating and fishing, and impressive waterfalls. We are 60 miles NE of Redding, and 1 1/2 hours by car both from Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen National Park.
If our rates seem high, it is because weonlyhostonegroupatatime, for your peace and privacy. Besides the natural beauty, everyone notices the QUIET. Stars visible, too!
Native Americans in enjoyed this property and made their arrowheads in the meadows. The close proximity to the creek and lake attracted game animals so it was also a favored hunting spot. The first white settlers built a cabin here about 1894 and our historic barn dates from 1895. The 2-story, 3-bedroom Log House dates from 1921 and is one of the few remaining hand-built log homes in the area. This property, like our 3 neighbors, has never been linked to the "grid." We make our own electricity using the creek to turn a turbine (hydro-electric); the water goes back into the creek after turning the turbine. Once owned by famous Driscoll Strawberry Associates, this property was where they developed new varieties since we are remote and far from potential cross-pollination.
