Beautiful "blast back to the past"

They did a beautiful job refurbishing this old mercantile. Would definitely stay again! During your stay, take time to visit all the Falls and the swimming hole at Cattle Camp!

Wonderful place to stop on our road trip

My husband and I stopped here to spend the night during our road trip. It was a cute town and the rooms are really special!! My only complaint is the AC was loud and I had a hard time sleeping because of it. Overall I highly recommend!

Amazing quiet and so comfortable! Feedback on the mushroom festival.- Need more mushrooms incorporated in the festival. If it's a time to celebrate it, then incorporate it in the foods. Take note from the Asparagus, Pear, Dry Bean and Garlic festivals...sell products that have mushrooms in it...silly as it may seem...get original: wine, butter spread, dishes, soap, ice cream...that was the only unsatisfactory thing about the stay in McCloud.

Pleasant Place to Stay

Stayed in GG Attic Room and it was lovely. Food was great in the restaurant. Only issue was the room isn't very sound proof so you can hear people going up and down the stairs and talking in the hallway was easily heard.

Founder's Room stay, early May

4.8 on May 11, 2015

We loved everything about the Founder's Room. In addition to the vintage tub, there was a large 2-head shower in the bathroom with vintage fixtures. We enjoyed the nook by the window for chatting and reading and the gas stove that took the chill off the mornings. Kevin and Darlene were amazing. They were so helpful and treated us like family. We've promised ourselves a return visit because we liked everything about the hotel and the area. A great place to unwind.

McCloud River Mercantile Is GREAT!

From our first step into the Mercantile, we were treated with the delight of any four star hotel in any city! The view of Shasta from the Charles Miller room was an instant favorite! The amenities were wonderful, the dinner suggestion delightful! A wonderful getaway that we will surely return to in the future!

wonderful getaway spot

If you are visiting the Mount Shasta area, it's worth the ten minutes drive up Hwy 89 to McCloud. It's a charming, historic town with friendly people & some great shopping & dining opportunities. Just five more miles up the highway is the McCloud River Falls, Upper, Middle, & Lower, which are a must-see! The Mercantile's owners, the Mathis family, are friendly & accommodating, & will go out of the way to meet the needs of their guests. The rooms are charming, with the feel of a rustic B&B, and beautifully furnished. It's family-friendly, yet also a perfect choice for a romantic get-away. Guest rooms are upstairs, with shops and restaurants below, so you get the full experience without even leaving the building! All in all, highly recommended!

Delightful !

We stayed 2 nights in Rm 206, " Grandma's Attic". The hosts Kevin and Darlene have done an AMAZING restoring this old town Mercantile store into bed and breakfast. The rooms are delightful, each having their own theme. We will definitely be back.

Perfect Getaway!

Seriously - I don't need to lie on this update. I was able to take my lab with me to this perfectly beautiful place, they gave me special accomodations and I just go there to visit the mccloud falls and it ended up being the perfect trip. Totally going there again!

Great Getaway!!

I surprised my boyfriend with an overnight getaway and we stayed in the Charles Miller room. It was perfect! Romantic with fireplace and whirlpool spa. The view of Mt. Shasta from the room is spectacular! Highly recommended!!
