We're located in eastern Shasta County, in one of many small mountain valleys, between
Mt. Shasta to the north and Lassen Peak to the south. Lots of blue skies, sunshine
and clean air. This is the land of many spring-fed, cold, productive trophy trout
fishing waterways -- such as Fall River, Hat Creek, Pit River, Big Lake, Lake Britton,
Baum Lake, Crystal Lake, and Burney Creek. These waterways also provide nesting
grounds for wild geese, and many species of ducks. The Fall River Valley has a five-star
championship golf course, among the many outdoor recreational opportunities available.
There are wilderness areas with trailheads for horseback riding, and many hiking
trails, including the Pacific Crest Trail, which winds through the area. At an average
elevation of around 3,200 feet, we have four full seasons, and usually just enough
snow to be postcard perfect. The area abounds with wildlife, including deer, antelope,
grey fox, bobcat, quail, wild turkey, and even an occasional bear and mountain lion.
Bird watching will include the bald eagle, osprey, swan, pelican and crane, along
with the usual jay, woodpecker, and many songbirds
One of our "claims to fame" is Burney Falls, which Teddy Roosevelt is said to have
dubbed "the eighth wonder of the world!"
