Thanks to houseboat.org, I rented the boat I needed, and wanted. It just so happened to be one of Silverthorn's boats. So I was concerned, given reviews like this that advise not to do business with them. From the first encounter to the last, I found Silverthorn to be well run, well maintained, and honest. The staff is particularly good.... More

This resort pulled some very shady business practices and stole $2500 from me. During memorial day weekend I rented a house boat from this company. They raised the rate of the security deposit up to $2500 for the weekend and included in their contract, in the fine print, that if we had over 10 people on the boat that our... More

We went to Silverthorn's Pub last night after a day of boating on Lake Shasta. We heard there was going to be a band and we wanted to eat dinner. The pub was pretty busy as it was a holiday weekend. We ordered pizza and chicken wings. The pizza was ok, the wings were great. Good vibe going on with... More

This is our 12th year houseboating on lake Shasta, first time at Silverthorn resort. We've rented from houseboats.com and the last 4 years out of Shasta Marina. I have to say Shasta Marina wins, they have it together and have the best houseboat. We rented out of Silverthorn to get a boat that slept more people. The dock was very... More

Six families set out for a one week houseboat adventure out of silverthorn resort & marina. This was our 8th year of house boating and the 3rd on Shasta lake. We showed up at 1pm in anticipation of getting on the boat early. Needless to say our boat was broken upon arrival so they switched us to a different boat,... More

The staff working this resort are wonderful. They are pleasant even when dealing with impatient clients waiting to board their rented houseboats. And the clients do have to wait! If you show up at 3:00 you will wait 1-2 hours, so be prepared. There is a souvenir/clothing store and snack shop where you can drop some dollars while waiting! If... More

We rented the Queen2 houseboat and at first sight, we were very pleased. There were 14 of us and we were able to navigate throughout quite comfortably...the problem began with our upstairs bathroom;appearantly it hadn't been properly used by previous renters which lead to a clog and constant noise at night. When we we went back to the marina we... More

We have rented from Silverthorn several times and have always had a wonderful experience. The staff has always been accomodating and goes the extra mile to make sure everything is okay. The houseboats are top notch and very clean. We will look forward to renting from them again.

We rented an Executive houseboat for a week with a little apprehension after reading other reviews, but I have to say, Silverthorn Resort was an A+ from the very beginning to the end and beyond! Check-in was efficient, easy and seamless. Although it took a little time for orientation, it was thorough and informative. The staff was friendly, patient and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Silverthorn Resort is the destination for your Shasta Lake Houseboat adventure. With four houseboat models available, from the luxuriously appointed Queen I houseboat to the more quaint atmosphere of our Executive Houseboat we have options for just about every crowd. For the less nautically inclined, nestled in the pines, Silverthorn Resort cabins are ideal for those planning the perfect getaway or Family Reunion. There are eight cabins ranging from studios that sleep 4 up to two bedrooms that sleep up to 8. We also have a handicapped-accessible unit—please ask for details. Each cabin offers a cozy, rustic atmosphere with convenient kitchens, patios, gas barbecues, and more. Our cabins are a short stroll from the Silverthorn Marina and the Pizza and Pub. During your stay, plan on a lake adventure aboard one of our Patio Boats or Ski Boats. One boat slip is provided with each cabin rental. Additional slips can be provided based on availability. ... more   less
