About this listing
Welcome to Rolland & Heidi Baker's friendly mountain dome house on ten wooded acres overlooking Shasta Lake. The dome house has three cozy bedrooms and a studio apartment. The studio and dome house rent separately. Drive just down the road for quick lake access. Head to Lakehead for shopping and launch areas; hiking at Castle Craggs; explore Mount Shasta eateries or go south to Redding for shopping & dining. See Whiskeytown Lake & the Sacramento River and many other nearby recreational areas.
Relax on the patio and watch the sun rise or set.. Expect to see a few friendly deer come by for a visit wondering what you might offer to eat. Also, watch the scampering chipmunks, fleeting squirrels, and a curious fox or two. On occasions black bear have snuck onto the patio at night to investigate the scent from the forgotten barbecue! ..Yikes! They bite off the handles and knock over the bbq. it's important to return it clean to the garage each evening.
Daydream of lake activities as you watch boats, jet skis and fishermen below; or take a few minutes and drive down to the docks to enjoy the same yourselves!
This open style dome home is simply beautiful and filled with many modern amenities. Each room has comfortable beds and beautiful views. There is a futon in the great room for use as a bed if needed.
The entry level has an open floor plan with one bedroom and master bathroom. There are two open loft bedrooms and one full bathroom above.
*If adding use of the studio apartment, it is accessed through the house and the garage. It has a simple kitchenette, a full bathroom and studio bedroom area.
Interaction with guests
As the hostess I look forward to meeting you, visiting together, and acquainting you with the home, property and materials about the area recreation options.
I'm accessible by phone 24-hours throughout your stay at ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
The neighborhood is in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest area. The home is in a quiet, gated community. Because of the narrow roads, wildlife, and occasional neighbors walking their dogs - please drive carefully and slowly! The road is filled with 'blind curves' so, please drive closely to the posted limit of 22mph, staying tightly to the outside edge of the roadway.
There are a few convenience stores at the lakeshore docking areas. For the best selection of groceries or other shopping needs, choose Redding, Shasta Lake City or Lakehead for the broader selections.
Other things to note
The birds.. you may want to bring your binoculars! I watched a bald eagle circle over recently, and the same day, a screeching golden eagle swiftly chased two terrified vultures out of the area right in front of the house!

I love beauty..beautiful places, everyone's faces, the uniqueness of individuals and of communities. I enjoy the fine arts - particularly painting; I also love listening to music, reading, camping, fishing and hunting. I'm enriched by having fantastic relationships with my family. They're all very entertaining! I also like serving the hearts of the people I work for, Rolland and Heidi Baker. They extend their home to you in hopes each person will find a peaceful, joyful, restful time while at their cabin. We look forward to hearing your stories!
As a host, I primarily value helping people reach their goals. Whether you come for privacy or come to find access to your favorite places or things to do, I enjoy helping you meet your goals.
