My husband and I and our family all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday stay at the Shasta Mountinn Retreat & Spa. From the moment we entered the house, we all instantly felt more relaxed. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable (top of the line bedding, robes, lotions, etc..), all with views of Mt. Shasta. The sauna, hot tub, leg massagers, porch chairs, gardens, plethora of teas and late night snacks were all wonderful as well. But the owner, David, is really what makes the Inn stand out. His genuine compassion for others shines through in his gracious hospitality. He makes you feel right at home without feeling like you're intruding in someone else's home. He makes a phenomenal breakfast and will happily accommodate any dietary needs.This B&B is in quick walking distance to town, but is quiet and removed from light pollution so the stars are crystal clear. A typical night at the Inn might consist of warming up in the sauna, relaxing in the hot tub, cooling off in the porch rocker while stargazing, playing cards, watching movies, and reading after walking to dinner in town. We live locally, but decided to treat ourselves and our visiting family (from Florida) to the Inn for a couple of nights. We are so glad we did. We recommend this for visitors from far and to residents of Northern California.
