Ok maybe I am spoiled but I like refrigerators and a microwave. More important cleanliness. Carpet was so stained and nasty. Even wore shoes in the shower. TV was limited and fuzzy like the olden days. No wifi.

I've rented the Grand Sierra houseboat from Bridge Bay on 4 different occasions. In past trips service was okay (not great, but tolerable and worth the price). Following my most recent trip to lake Shasta I WILL NOT be returning to Bridge Bay. After having several motor issues that mysteriously happened over night I was charged over $1100 for the...

We're very sorry to hear your visit with us didn't go as planned. We'd never rent out a boat that would cause problems, and it's disheartening to hear you feel the quality wasn't up to our own standards. We'd love to discuss this further and clear this up. Feel free to give us a call. All the best, Bridge Bay...

I found some poor reviews for customer service, however the service we received from reservations to checking in, to housekeeping, to the employees at the gate, to the employees at the store and the COOK HOUSE, to be a large part of what made this a Very Good place to stay. Yes, the buildings are not modern, yet very clean,...

Lake Shasta is full to the brim and absolutely gorgeous. Yes, the resort has aged, but we found our room to be clean and well maintained. We were very impressed with the restaurant overlooking the marina, had us thinking about arranging a houseboat party next summer.

Made a reservation there for a family suite 5 days ago. The website didn't show any pictures of the exact layout of the suite so I called the 800# to ask them to email me pictures, and I also reserved and gave my credit card # to reserve the suite beforehand.

Clean accommodations at a super cheap price.. Looks like the units we stayed at were built many many years ago... Nice views of the lake. The cookhouse restaurant does a great job for dinner and breakfast and is reasonably priced.

My husband and I came for 4 days Sun-Wed. From the minute we pulled up to check in to check out everything was absolute perfection! This is the perfect location on the lake, smack in the middle and easy to get to the entire lake. We got a King room and a slip for our pontoon boat. Parking was easy,...

We used this property only for a first-time family houseboat rental, for 9 people, from three generations. The youngest generation (ages 5, 6, and 11) had zero complaints. We elders can't really complain either because a good time was had by all, and others have not seemed to experience some of the staffing issues that we did. More later. We...

We want to sincerely apologize that you ran into so many roadblocks while renting a houseboat from us.

We had a family get together of 14 (5 young kids and 9 adults) and rented the Grand Sierra houseboat from Bridge Bay for 4 days, 3 nights. We all had a blast.
