We had just come from another historic hotel, where the experience was not good, so we arrived with trepidation at this one. We stayed in the Minnesota room, which was large, filled with light, and had a great bathroom (double sinks, beautiful colors). We loved the details in the room--wallpaper, wainscotting, high ceilings. The breakfast next door ($20 credit from the hotel) was also great--we had fresh veggie omelets that were far superior to our last stay. The owners of the hotel were delighted to hear how much we enjoyed our stay, and we will go back!
My husband and I fell in love with the charm of The McCloud River Mercantile Inn. We stayed in the Minnesota Room and it was beautiful! We ate breakfast and lunch at the cafe and loved it! Unfortunately the restaurant/bar was closed but we got a chance to peek in the window and it looks fabulous. We will be back for sure!
A lot of nicer hotels in this general area were through the roof expensive. This place was reasonable by comparison, but after staying there and seeing what you get I would say it's a great deal. You get $20 of your breakfast at the local cafe comped too. Very nice for the price. Just book well in advance, more than 6 months I'd say, because it fills up fast in the summer.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this inn! Checking in was a breeze. The room itself was wonderful, decorated beautifully, had the A.C. running which was good because it was a hot day out. The claw foot tub in the room was amazing. The double headed shower in the bathroom was great. I can't say enough wonderful things about this room and about the mercantile hotel in general. They have two dining options available for breakfast, the Kyody Cafe for more of a coffee special and some breakfast items like waffles and breakfast burritos, or the White Mountain Cafe for a real sit down diner feel. I had the most amazing omelette from the White Mountain Cafe on the second morning. After checking out and heading to Lake Siskiyou, we realized we left a bag in our room. We went back to the front desk and they were so helpful, the person cleaning the room was so nice, located our bag and returned it right away. We ended up staying at another inn for the last night of our trip, just to experience what McCloud had to offer, hands down this inn was way better. Next time I come to McCloud I will no doubt be staying at the McCloud River Mercantile Inn.
This hotel, built in the 1900's greets you with the smell of pine upon entering. Then the welcome by the staff, and you are in for the most peaceful, nurturing adventure of a lifetime. It has become our home away from home. The food in the Sage Restaurant is prepared with the freshest ingredients and a lovely variety. So surprised at the reasonable prices. Breakfast is included in your stay...some of our favorites are lemon ricotta pancakes, cheesy polenta, fluffy eggs.
We had a great stay. The staff was very polite and helpful. The rooms are rustic and comfortable. For our stay a full breakfast was included. The atmosphere of this old building was very enjoyable. The commen room upstairs offers room for gathering next to the fire place and playing games. Coffee, tea are available for your morning. It is winter and some of the local eateries were closed for the season. Thus having limited dinning for dinner. We did enjoy a nice dinner at facility there in town. If you have the time spend a couple days and enjoy the shops and the beautiful scenery. You will not regret it! Thank you for a great stay
The Innkeeper went out of her way to make my stay pleasant. My room was very large, quaint, yet updated and comfortable (including the bed!). She was a wealth of information about local history and interesting sites to visit. I highly recommend this Inn. It would be particularly lovely for a romantic getaway.
My husband, Sean, and I stopped by just for one night to stay at the Inn. It was wonderful! The ladies in the shop downstairs were so friendly and helpful, and the place is absolutely beautiful. I wanted to move in! Breakfast in the diner downstairs was delicious and very accommodating to my gluten-free needs. The bookstore was closed, unfortunately, but we definitely plan to be back for another round!
My fiancee and I were pleased when we opened up the door to the Friday George Room. Every detail about that little room was well thought out. It was comfortable and cozy--just what we needed after our long hike on Mt. Shasta. All of the furnishings were of high quality and character. Although the claw-foot tub was smaller, I was still very impressed with how unique the room was in its entirety. The $20 toward breakfast at the restaurant beneath the Inn was a pleasant surprise as the meal was quite delicious. This was definitely our favorite hotel room of all on our week-long CA trip. Thanks again Mathis Family for our lovely stay at the Mercantile Inn!
The lovely McCloud Mercantile Hotel suited us perfectly. Quaint building, homey, old fashioned room with stupendous views of Mt. Shasta just out the window, and a kitchen/gathering/common room as well.What more could you want? Oh, maybe breakfast…your room comes with breakfast, provided in the on-site restaurant where my husband at the best veggie omelet he's ever had. And McCloud is only a very short drive off Hwy 5. We'll be back.
This is the second time we have stayed here, and highly recommend it to all. The rooms are very large and comfortably furnished and impeccably detailed with period perfect treatments. We have marveled on the detailed craftsmanship of the tile, woodwork, lighting and all details. Real Craftsmanship. This time we were wonderfully surprised with a glorious view of Mt. Shasta from our room. What a wonderful sight to wake up to. Very best, gracious service and charming town. We highly recommend it and will stay there again.
I generally do not write reviews of the various lodgings that I have visited during my travels. If I enjoyed my stay, I may make it a point to return. If not, I find other accommodations the next time around. However, for the McCloud Hotel, I must make an exception; for this lovely Hotel is a “must stay” for anyone visiting the Mt. Shasta area. Returning home to the San Francisco Bay Area via the “Oregon Trail” from a vacation in the Grand Tetons, my wife and I stopped the quant little town nestled within a forest primeval, virtually in the shadow of Mt. Shasta towering in the background, which can be seen to the north just up Main Street. We were charmed by the perfectly restored 1916 Hotel and its similarly charming proprietors, Cindy Rosmann and Gary Bostwick, who were most attentive, accommodating and abundantly knowledgeable of the local lore of the area. The gardens surrounding the country inn are lush, imaginatively and tastefully landscaped; just as comfortable in which to enjoy an afternoon sherry as is the warm intimacy of the wood paneled and bookcase lined lobby sitting room for the savoring of an after-dinner port in front of the tiled fireplace, perhaps while listing to another guest playing on the upright piano in the corner next to the impressive grand staircase. We occupied Suite 217, which is decorated in attractive arts & crafts style dominated by a fabulous two-person copper soaking tub in the spacious bedroom – very sensual and sexy; a perfect setting for some artistic boudoir photography! I found sitting on the wisteria covered open porch adjacent to the apartment in the stillness of the early morning was almost as relaxing as was resting in the luxurious 4-poster king bed during the preceding night. And the hearty and delicious breakfast in the Sage Restaurant located in the McCloud Hotel is really something about which to write home! In short, this place is a rustic treasure hiding away in an enchanted forest – highly recommended!
My husband and I had a quick get away to the Mt Shasta area and decided to try the McCloud Hotel with Bed and Breakfast.com. Our stay was wonderful! The staff is friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. They have private patios to sit and relax or a great backyard area that is really pleasant. The Sage restaurant has wonderful food and you can eat outside if you choose. We left very early our second morning and the staff still gave us some snacks to go the night before. The sit down breakfast was delicious, I am sorry we could not stay to try something different the second morning. This is a must stay.
Beautiful Hotel! Every room has a fun name. Each room has it's own layout and view. Happy that the room was very clean and well taken care of. Very friendly and helpful staff. We loved the old style charm that each room has. Rooms do not have microwaves or mini fridges. But they do have a common area that has a little kitchen and sitting area. Reminded us of the olden days, but the rooms are well taken care of.
Very quiet, very small old logging town dominated by beautiful Mount Shasta in the back yard. The hotel is ancient but well restored. Twenty dollar daily credit for breakfast at adjoining cafe that serves excellent fare. Short drive to beautiful easy hiking up river with three waterfalls. We'll be back!
A vary well appointed place to stay with comfortable rooms and a unique atmosphere that exceeds the norm. In my view far preferable to the average hotel if you are staying in the Shasta area. The small-town environment does not provide a lot of opportunities for entertainment but you are very close to whatever you are looking for in the Shasta area. I would definitely stay there again.
The mercantile is a very cozy place even though is pretty big. The rooms all have their own personality and each one is very beautiful and confortable. The staff is super fiendly and you feel you are among family when you are there. The dinner downstairs have great food and again service is excellent. I will be coming back.
Stayed two nights at this wonderful establishment. A true journey to days gone by! Located on the upper floor of the historic McCloud River Mercantile, the rooms are beautifully and imaginatively decorated. There is a beautiful parlor area for guests to use on the upper floor, as well, and the shops below are great fun to shop in. They offer a $20 credit for breakfast at the adjacent cafe. The food was very good, well prepared, and we enjoyed the community feeling that existed between the patrons and the proprietor. Just a wonderful, fun experience. We will visit again!
We stayed in the Rail Road room which was decorated so nice, we loved it! I'm very picky about cleanliness and I had no worries about this hotel . You will love the soap and shampoo, they smelled so good and they weren't the cheap usual hotel soap. I went into the shop when we checked out and I bought the shampoo . They give you a $20 credit for the cafe below which was so nice and the food was great and everyone is so nice at the hotel and the cafe. I will defiantly go back and stay longer .
The room was beautiful. We stayed in the Founders Room. It has a old claw bathtub and we took at hot bath with the bath salts and soup we got in the add on package. It was romantic and quiet. The bed was very soft and we had a wonderful night sleep. The only downer is there is no food at the hotel so we had to make other arrangements for meals and dinner. We recommend staying there for any couple who wants a little romantic get a way.
