You will not find better cabins or better host and hostess anywhere on Shasta Lake. These cabins are rustic and comfortable. The most convenient cabins on the Lake for water activities. Each cabin comes with a boat dock which are close to the cabins. No extra rental fees or long walks to the boat. Harold and Arlene are the most... More

We came on a weekday in mid-April. The weather was forecasting thunderstorm, & temp in high 40 to low 50. We were one of the 2 families staying there, so very quiet. The cottage itself is very clean, decorated in the classic knotted pine log style, with some contemporary updates here & there. But the essence of a quaint mountain... More

Our family and friends have been going to these cabins for many years. We enjoy the quiet get-away with the lake for water sports and fishing. You can boat to Shasta Dam. There are different size cottages, from one room to three or four bedrooms, and one to two bathrooms. The cabins are always clean. All beds are queen size.... More

We have been visiting Lake Shasta and staying at Sugarloaf Cottages for many years. This is the only property I know of that is directly on the lake - if the water isn't super low you can easily walk down to the dock and your boat. The owner's, Harold and Arlene, have been consistently updating the cottages since they purchased... More

We have been going to the Sugarloaf Cottages on Lake Shasta for the past 3 Labor Day Weekends. This is a great place to take the family. The price of your cottage includes a slip at the marina. The place is rustic and a little dated but that adds to the charm. Harold and Arlene are great hosts and bend... More

Just finished fishing up at Lake Shasta and staying with Arlene and Harold at their wonderful property right on the lake with boat slips that go with the cabins. The cabins are all different sizes. They are old but well maintained. We have been staying here for over 40 years from time to time and long before the present management.... More

Nice clean cabins right on the water. Boat launch, slip if you bring or rent a boat. Love the wood work inside the cabins. Big Charcoal BBQ on the desk was nice. We really liked the very helpful owners. Almost forgot, the rec room at the top of the hill. Air hockey and a very nice pool table right in... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Sugarloaf Cottages on the Sacramento arm of lake Shasta.
