There aren't many places to stay around here if you are passing through. trip Advisor ranks this as number 1 , so we were hoping for a little diamond in the rough. Not exactly. Communicating with the owner is a difficult experience...see other reviews for experiences similar to ours. It made us feel uneasy. The room was basic and what...

We at the Lakehead Lodge are certainly glad that you stopped in and apologize for any communication issues you might have had. We appreciated that you noted the cleanliness of the room. Sorry that you didnt have a good nights rest. Most guests seem to enjoy the firm mattresses. It is unfortunate to hear that the occasional train disturbed you....

We heard about this place on TripAdvisor while searching for good places to stop off on a long drive to Shasta. It is located in the mountains north of Redding. Once you leave Redding there are not many places to stop for lodging before Mount Shasta. We pulled up around 11 PM or maybe later, the office was locked, we...

We want to thank you folks for your stay here at the Lakehead Lodge. I sure didnt mean to be curt with you so late in the evening. We normally dont show rooms to possible guests after dark for security reasons but we did make an exception for you guys after your repeated insistence. I apologize for not explaining to...

My dad and I drove up from So Cal for a family reunion at Lakehead. Cleanliness is very important to both of us and the lodge fit the bill in this regard. The accommodations are a bit dated, however, it added to the charm of the establishment. The lodge is very well cared for and it looked as though the...

We were interested in a place close to Redding, one that took pets, was clean and reasonably priced. The outstanding reviews and location of Lakehead Lodge in the mountains, north of Redding, piqued our interest. Unfortunately, our impressions of this motel were not as rave as previous reviewers'. The host, Jim, was very personable. As mentioned by others, reservations are...

My family and I absolutely love the Lakehead Lodge. This was our first visit and we were very impressed. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The rec room and BBQ/picnic area are great, especially with the kids (felt like BBQ'ing at home while the kids played). The Lodge is managed, maintained, and housekept by Jim who is the...

We stayed at the Lakehead Lodge for 2 nights this July, on a family road trip with our 3 young children down the west coast of America. The lodge itself is beautifully maintained and the rooms were clean and very comfortable. Jim, the owner, made us feel very welcome and was only too happy to answer any questions we had....

I spent two nights at the Lakehead Lodge while attending a family reunion at Shasta Lake. I chose to have a hot shower rather than sleep in a tent. I was impressed with the lodge. I had stayed there as a child in the late 1950s and was afraid it would be dated. To my surprise, things were fresh and...
