Highlands Ranch Resort

We highly recommend Highlands Ranch Resort; it is a jewel near Lassen Volcanic National Park! This resort has beautiful cottages overlooking a magnificent Meadow and a restaurant offering delicious dining (including live music this past Saturday). We returned from our hike to catch the conclusion of a classic car show. The nighttime stargazing from our hot tub at the edge of the meadow revealed the Milky Way, dippers and shooting stars. The owner Kevin is a wonderful host and makes sure everything exceeds expectation.

Thank you so much! This area is truly a gem and deserves something new that encourages year round exploring! Come see us in the wintertime-it's stunning!

We stayed at the Silhouette cottage for two nights and enjoyed our stay. The room is modern and well appointed and large enough for two. One improvement would be to provide better window treatments for the windows by the front door which face out to the fire pit. The treatments do not completely cover the windows. The bathroom was very nice with adjustable heated flooring. The pasture filled with 60+ cows each morning was a treat and we spent a lot of time admiring the beauty. We enjoyed spending time with Josh at the well stocked bar. Breakfast was delicious. Dinner was also great. The pricing is a bit steep and we would come back for a return visit if they offered military discounts.

We stayed (June 2017) here for the close location to Lassen National Park which is a big plus. The resort is very pretty, cabins are nicely done with many upgraded touches and concern for the environment. We stayed in Serenity, Cabin #3 which was very comfortable with comfy bed and pillows, beautiful large bathroom and like I said many nice touches. The owners and staff were wonderful and helpful. Your stay includes a delicious breakfast which we always ate on the deck overlooking the beautiful meadow, cows, trees and mountains. We also ate dinner there and everything we had was delicious (I'm a vegetarian and had delicious options). As far as street noise, yes it is a bummer to hear that as we had to keep our windows open at night to let in the cool air as it was very hot during the day. When windows were closed you didn't hear it. Nothing is perfect in life so was easy to deal with as there are so many good things about the resort. Not much WiFi but when we are on a trip in beautiful country we don't care - you can get some service in the lodge sitting area if you need. We would stay there again for sure.

Really nice, 'modern Ranch style' accommodations with extraordinary views and a very good and beautifully designed on site restaurant and bar. We were thrilled to land in this idyllic setting on our way from Oakland to Mt. Shasta. It was extremely quiet this time of year which was a bonus for us. Sitting with a glass of wine on the deck, at sunset, we swore we saw a bear loping in the distance along the tree line beyond the sparkling river...

We stayed at the RV park across the street (also owned by Highlands Ranch) Our camp host raved about the food and encouraged us to enjoy a 5 star meal. We asked our host if is was ok for us to wander over to shoot some photos of the meadow as we planned to make a dinner reservation. He said "absolutely!". Well, we walked across the street with our well behaved collie on a lead. We were met with nasty signs saying "no pets allowed on property". My wife decided it was best to respect their wishes and waited in the parking lot near the road while I took a few photos. Within a minute some one emerged from the building and said "dogs are not allowed on the property, you will need to leave now!" I explained that I just wanted to take a few photos and then come in to make dinner reservations. The person said he was just an employee and did not make the rules and repeated "The owner wants you and your dog to leave the property immediately!". We left... for the first time in our lives we truly understood what it felt like to " be discriminated against". It was awful. Our only crime: we walked our dog in their parking lot.

It could have been avoided if our camp host had warned us about walking our dog across the street. BTW: the RV park is run down and awful. We left a day early and walked away from our prepaid RV rent. This is a good place to drive past as fast as possible. Another BTW, This property is right on a very busy highway with cars and trucks coming by at 60 mph. Certainly not the serene, tranquil place they advertise. If you are camping, a much better option is the NFS campground a mile away called Gurney Creek Campground.

We can't comment on the food as we were refused service.

Room Tip: Drive on by!

I'm sorry that your feel you were treated unfairly about our no pet policy on our property and protected meadow but it is our responsibility as stewards of this beautiful place to preserve it. I'm sure you know that not every pet is well behaved or has a responsible owner at its lead who will not allow their dog to do their business in our parking lot while people are dining in our steakhouse gazing out at (what should be) beautiful views of Lassen Park. Our reality was once we opened, people stopped here to let their pets relieve themselves, did not clean up after them and let them run around on our property, hence the signs. It's a decision as property owners we made for our resort, it wasn't directed at any one pet owner.
The property across the street is under renovation and will eventually be a beautiful place to stay.
