“House on the River” was originally a full service fly-fishing lodge. Begun in 1996, it soon became the fishing destination for anglers on the Upper Sacramento River. Converted to a vacation rental in 2002, it is now a private facility.
This unique and beautiful lodge-styled home is perched on a private mesa overlooking the wild and scenic Upper Sacramento River. Zoned “Unclassified”, it operates under a county administrative use permit as a Bed & Breakfast; seller shows appx. $90k gross in 2010 as wedding venue, fishing retreat and vacation rental.
It is located just 5 miles from Shasta Lake on the Upper Sacramento River and the facility enjoys the best of both worlds. You can be on the lake with your boat in less than 15 minutes or fish for large, wild trout just outside the front door. “House on the River” also features a beautiful sandy beach within easy walking distance of the lodge that's perfect for kids, teenagers and adults.
Surrounded by National Forest and reportedly the only structure on the river’s edge for over 25 miles, this lodge is ideal for large groups, family vacations and reunions, fishing expeditions, weddings, meetings and those just wishing to get away from it all.
As a vacation rental, guests enjoy use of the gourmet kitchen that features marble countertops, 2 refrigerators, 2 stoves, 2 dishwashers, and all the supplies and equipment needed to cook for a crowd. The dining room features a 16-ft. long table, and in the great room, a 10-ft. wet bar welcomes you to sit and enjoy tasty libations. Also in the great room is a gorgeous river rock, gas-fueled fireplace, a full-size Brunswick pool table, in-home movie theater with 8’ screen, 2 leather couches, Yamaha surround-sound with Bose speakers, CD & DVD player, and pc/laptop and internet connection. The five bedrooms contain beds for 12. The service porch holds a washer & dryer.
Outside, the raised, wooden deck holds a sparkling spa and overlooks 15,000 sq. feet of manicured lawn. The barbecue area has a Weber grill, a gas grill, a charcoal grill, a smoker, and in season, a vegetable garden.
As a beautiful wedding venue, the ceremony space takes the form of an ancient Greek-styled pavilion which overlooks the Sacramento River in an exclusive and private setting. Complete with a 400 sq. ft. lit dance floor, staging area and a band/DJ platform, this wedding event location is truly one of a kind in the area. The lawn will accommodate up to 200 guests.
Purchase of this property will include all of the furnishings (except a few select antiques the seller can't bear to part with), appliances, and the equipment, supplies, chairs, tables, linens, etc. available for use by the rental customers and guests.
