At this property, guests can choose from seven recently refurbished suites with different layouts depending on the size / age of the group you’re traveling with. Owen and I were in the Kelsey Room (Room 2), which was beyond perfect for a couple. It was very spacious, yet warm and intimate with a soaking tub and electric fireplace! In fact, each suite features locally reclaimed hardwood flooring, a full bathroom, flat screen television with DishTV, ceiling fan and an electric fireplace. The rooms also have mini refrigerators, microwaves, plates and utensils, and Keurig coffee makers with a selection of regular, decaf, and hot chocolate pods. I was also pleased to see the use of “BeeKind” toiletry products in the bathroom which are eco-friendly. Now, I can’t forget to mention the bed. It was probably one of the most comfortable beds and THE most comfortable sheets I’ve ever slept on. I actually took a photo of the brand of sheets so I could buy them for my bed at home (I’m not going to disclose the brand because you’ll just have to go and see for yourself!!) At the end of the day, it’s those kind of small details that I truly appreciate about a place!
In light of coronavirus, they had a great self-check in policy in place. Guest receive a text with their room number and passcode to the lockbox with your keys [located next to your door]. All of the rooms have an external entrance meaning you do not have to go through a lobby to get to your room. They are not currently providing breakfast or daily cleaning services to avoid contact (which is totally normal and recommended during this time to keep both the guests and staff safe!). However, they are readily available upon request if you need anything at all! Another exciting update is coming in June- a new restaurant, Harvest, will be opening! The owner, Misty, not only makes great meals but incredible desserts! Check out their instagram for photos. Overall, because the property has a small number of rooms that are very spacious, I felt very comfortable and safe during my stay. 10/10 would recommend The Shasta View Lodge! I can’t wait to come back!
If you want to visit the Shasta View Lodge here are some tips:
