What we can offer our guests is close proximity to the town of Mt. Shasta and a very private, quiet setting. We are about .9 miles to town but live in the forest. Guests have killer views out of each window and a private deck for relaxation.

The loft has about 800 sq. ft. and the living room, dining room, bedroom and kitchen are all open with no walls between them. Guests have their own private carport to keep from the snow and sun.

There is a full kitchen with all conveniences except a dishwasher.

There is a queen size bed and a high quality pull out sofa-bed. Our space can accommodate 4 people.

We are pet-dander free and this is the reason we do not allow pets. Read our reviews and you will be convinced that the Garden Loft is the place for you.

We have two mountain bikes to borrow as well as two pairs of snowshoes. We have snow sleds and luges as well.

Why The Owner chose Mount Shasta

The garden loft is a great get-a-way from the hustle and bustle of one's home. Guests have called our garden loft serene with a special feeling of calmness. One is in the forest yet only a short hike to the downtown area.

What makes this cottage unique

Our visitors will enjoy the privacy and solitude as well as the close proximity to town, skiing, and many other outdoor activities that Mt. Shasta is known for. Park in the carport that is steps from the front door of the loft. Enjoy the 1 acre of flowers during the Spring, Summer and Fall. How about a two person shower with two shower heads!! Total relaxation awaits you here.

A charming, quiet place for 2 to enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a 4-day stay at The Garden Loft. This was our fourth time there, and it all was perfect. We went hoping to ski Mt. Shasta, but alas, no snow this time! Nonetheless, the loft was a great place to relax, with a cozy feeling (lots of nice artwork), a well-equipped kitchen, luxury bath, and comfortable surroundings. The views of Mt. Shasta from the windows and deck were excellent as well. Also, our hosts, John and Sandy, were ready to help with whatever we needed and helped us discover a terrific trail network within walking distance that we enjoyed hiking each day. They also shared many other ideas for nearby places to explore.

We had a great stay at the Garden Loft, and we're sure to come back again!

Amazing place with an even better view!

  • 5 of 5

This garage loft is just perfect for 4 people. We stayed there with our child and really enjoyed the short drive to the mountain, the friendliness of the owner, and the charming grounds. The aminities and attention to detail are just superb. We slept great, enjoyed the games provided, watched movies at night, and were able to relax on our vacation. Wonderful owners!

Picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

The attention to detail and craftsmanship of the garden loft are wonderful. The gardens are a work of art and labor of love. Private and quiet, just far enough out of town yet close to everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A perfect spot for a mountain visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent 2 relaxing nights at the Garden Loft. Our accommodations couldn't have been any nicer. Clean, bright and tastefully decorated with room to spare. So much better than any hotel room. John and Sandy are friendly hosts and were very helpful with ideas on places to visit during our stay...we especially liked that the hosts had placed binders in the apartment with loads of information on everything you would want to know about the area....which we definitely took advantage of. We felt like we were invited guests! The location of the apt was nestled in a wooded area overlooking Mt.Shasta and John's beautiful gardens...we do wish we had more time to spend there.

For anyone looking for a great accommodations, I would highly

recommend "The Garden Loft". John and Sandy were so thoughtful that they left a bottle of wine in the refrigerator to help us celebrate our anniversary!

A great get away in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the garden loft. It was very comfortable for my husband, our two school aged children, and me. We used it as our base as we explored the area: lakes, hiking, waterfalls, snow up on Mt. Shasta in June!, and the headlands of the Sacramento River. John is a very warm and friendly man, and he gave us excellent suggestions for activities. We highly recommend staying here for the comfort level and the easy access to so many beautiful places in the area.

Beautiful and comfy loft, lovely gardens, peaceful location, superb hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our choice for 2 nights in Mt. Shasta. John and Sandy are probably the best hosts I've ever encountered in decades of travel. The love put into their extensive gardens shines through with blooms everywhere. Everything you need for a comfortable stay, and a very quiet location backing onto woods abundant with birds and nature all around, plus views of Mt. Shasta. THANK YOU!! P.S. The bulbs made it home ;-) THANKS>>>>>

Sandy and I propagate Shasta Lilies and we probably have the largest concentration (no. per acre) of Shasta Lilies in California and Oregon. When they bloom the fragrance rivals any flower from Hawaii. One bloom in a room will permeate an entire home.
