Nice, clean and straightforward place with lots of room if you want to do a quiet writing retreat with friends.
Ray's barn cottage is ideal for a couple or small family of no more than 4. If you are heading to the Mt. Shasta area you will probably be spending a large portion of time hiking or engaged in outdoor activities and that is what we did. Ray's place is perfect for sleeping and playing board games at night and the shower heats up nicely in the morning. There is a fridge, sink and small stove and everything is very clean and homey and cozy. Ray had his housekeeper put out brochures and directions for great hikes and activities in the area. He also had coffee available and body wash and shampoo and towels. Location is fairly close to town but is still about a 10 minute drive through suburb/farm country. Ray was extremely responsive and accommodating with our schedule. Thanks Ray!
Ray was so welcoming and easy to get in touch with. Ray's place is a perfect little spot in a really great "neighborhood" tucked in the woods. It's perfectly secluded but still close to downtown Mt Shasta. We slept happily in the cool downstairs bedroom. We loved the horses next door and the great view from the balcony. As we were in the midst of a hiking trip, it was great to make use of the washer/dryer.
We had a great stay! The place was exactly as described, comfortable, charming, with everything we needed and some nice extra touches. Making arrangements with Ray went smoothly, he was very responsive. We used the second bed upstairs; both spaces were spacious and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet, conveniently close to all the Shasta sites. We really enjoyed being there: it was peaceful with a lovely view of the mountain.
The red barn is a great place to stay! My wife and I had a peaceful and fun 2 night visit. The space is rustic, simple, and well laid out. We cooked a beautiful dinner one night using the kitchen amenities...very helpful.
The space gets hot during summer days...the AC unit was a great addition! A small fan would be a good thing to have in the space as well.
Ray was very helpful and communicative. He helped remotely and responded to texts and emails quickly. The space was adequately clean and presentable.
The red barn is on my list of places to stay again when I'm in Mount Shasta! Thanks Ray!
The absolutely best thing about the Shasta Barn is the view of the countryside, the sunset and Mt Shasta from the deck - unforgettable!
Ray, thank you for the great stay at the Red Barn. It was the perfect experience. We loved the deck looking the meadow and trees.
The red barn was a wonderful, rustic getaway. It is located in a pleasant meadow that's a short drive into town. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing mountain retreat.
An amazing 8 days in mountain paradise! The Barn Cottage with its location just far enough out of town, and the remote views of the pasture and Mt. Shasta are exceptional. One of the greatest features to the BC is the deck which we had dinner each night and the star gazing was awesome!
So easy to work with Ray for booking and Mt. Shasta info. Polite, excellent host and our communications with him were timely and concise and just a great guy when we did get a chance to meet him. 5 stars for the entire experience and we have already re-booked for a stay in late August.
The Red Barn is a great location if you are looking for something more private and casual. We enjoyed our stay and would use this location again. Met the owner who is more than curtious and accommodating. Thanks Ray
ray's friend matt stayed in one room and had the unfortunate experience of waking up very early to bleating, hungry goats. i am grateful matt was so gracious and humorous about this :)
