We just had a great weekend at Shasta MountainInn. We met Dave, the owner, who took great care of us the whole time. He was super friendly and very interesting to listen to. In addition to running the Inn,, he also does massage. He is a warm, caring person who really seems to love what he is doing. The room we stayed in was absolutely beautiful, with a great view of Mount Shasta from the bed. In addition the room had a fireplace, Jacuzzi and a really comfortable bed. The grounds are lovely and there is an outdoor Jacuzzi, a sauna and a place to eat. Dave let us use his kitchen to cook a small lunch which we had out on the deck. It is not the cheapest place in Shasta but I think it is worth spending the extra money to get this kind of good Shasta experience. And the breakfast that Dave prepares are really very good! We had pancakes, bacon, eggs the way we wanted,granola, yogurt and lots more. Even though the place is small, it feels very private there. And it is a five minute walk to downtown Shasta. Dave really makes everyone feel right at home. And he seems to have a lot of repeat guests. It is totally worth spending the little extra to get this kind of experience in Shasta.
