McCloud River Inn

325 Lawndale Court , McCloud, CA 96057 USA (Show map)


Circa 1900. Nestled within the beauty of Shasta National Forest, rests this country Victorian. Five serene acres of lawns and woodland create a peaceful setting for this Nationally Registered Historic Inn. The interior has been painstakingly restored, and each of the five guest rooms has its own individual charm. Private baths are standard with some rooms boasting of whirlpool tubs. Breakfasts are a treat, and a typical menu might include a savory Greek quiche, homemade breads and a selection of fresh fruits. Enjoy your breakfast in the parlor or on the veranda while watching the birds play. Plan time for a relaxing massage at our on site Day Spa while staying at the inn. If you are interested in outdoor activities, you will not be disappointed. Among these activities near the inn are hiking, site seeing, mountain biking, fishing, golf, alpine skiing, snowmobiling, etc. Local shops and historic sites are within easy walking distance.

Peaceful and charming

We stayed in the off season. It was quiet and peaceful. The staff was so accommodating. Loved the water - pure and delicious. Wish I had chosen a room with a bathtub - so I could have bathed in it. Took the package with a massage included. OMG - best massage of my life!!

A repeat of an idyllic experience

My GF and I stayed in the same room we shared a year prior. Still beautiful, still peaceful. People are warm, food/coffee is good. McCloud is paradise in the alpine hills (shh - it's still a secret). The building is old and spacious. The dorm-style shower head could use a little work. Expect a journey back in time.

I Highly Recommend this B&B.

Perfect Weekend Retreat

My wife and I traveled up to McCloud to enjoy some peace and quiet without our kids for our 5th wedding anniversary. We booked the Waterfall Room. A very cool, cozy room with a HUGE jet tub for two. We booked the romance package which included chocolates and a big bottle of champagne. There was a problem with the jet tub the day before we arrived, but they were able to get it fixed before we arrived for the weekend. They even discounted our room rate. The breakfast is very tasty. You get plenty of food. You do eat breakfast at a family table in the dining room with the other guests that are there for their stay. We got very good service and I would recommend anyone wanting to get away for 2-3 days to stay here. We happened to be in town during the BlueGrass Festival which was also a fun event to attend. There's plenty of nice shops, hiking, fishing and things to do in McCloud. It is such a pretty town, really a breath of fresh air. We will definitely be back!

Great Getaway

A lovely overnight stay on my way to Reno. Service and helpfulness of the staff was excellent. Clean and tidy, loved the bedding. The breakfast was excellent and delicious. The town was fun to explore in the morning before I hit the road. (couldn't get the "Outstanding" buttons to work in the review process)

We enjoyed our stay at the McCloud River Inn. It met all of our expectations, was very nice. The McCloud River Inn does not have "Onsite Dining" in the sense of dinner, but it does have breakfast. Staff and owner were very hospitable, and I would recommend McCloud River Inn.
