Mid June we rented a houseboat from Silverthorne resort. After reading several negative reviews, I must say,yes the docar was busy ,but that should be expected. We had a great time on the houseboat . We traveled all the way up the McCloud arm during our trip. Fuel was only $150. We had no problems at all. I will rent...

No parking, launch ramp is crazy, fuel prices are the most expensive on the lake. Its obvious management does not care about return customers. Silverthorn has the attitude that you have no other options on the lake.

Use caution when renting a houseboat from this marina. I almost lost my leg due to getting caught in the boat propeller. I was the 2nd person that this happened to in a two week period. I was taken by helicopter to the nearest hospital from the marina and not one time did the marina reach out to me to...

From the time we visited with the representatives from Silverthorn at the SF Sports and Boat Show (Feb 2015) to the time we had them check out our houseboat when we returned it at the end of our week long stay (July 2015), the staff at the Resort was great. Kudos to Sheila who put up with me and my...

We reserved the Queen houseboat a year in advance to celebrate our retirements. There were twelve of us. We were told that the boat would be ready between 3 and 6 PM but if we called in the afternoon they could give us an accurate time our boat would be ready. We called and they said that our boat would...

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....

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...

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...

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
