About Us

Shasta (87)









Our 2-story ranch house offers a rustic glimpse into the past in a historical setting. Built in 1923 by H. D. “Curley” Brown as a thoroughbred horse ranch, the original guest accommodations included the main house and several cottages and bungalows. Present-day guests enjoy the unique atmosphere and mood of those early years still reflected in the Mount Shasta Ranch Bed and Breakfast Northern California. This magnificent home has four spacious guestrooms in the main house, separate carriage house with five bedrooms and a two-bedroom cottage.

At the end of the day, please feel to curl by the huge stone fireplace and enjoy a crackling fire in our comfy living room or take a glass of wine to our large front veranda and bask in the sweeping unobstructed views of Mt Shasta as the sun sinks behind the clouds. Our relaxed atmosphere will make you feel right at home as we offer a gracious affordable alternative to hotels. Included in our rates are afternoon snacks, breakfast, early morning coffee and tea available in our tea room and many “little extras” to make your stay memorable.

As many of the B & B’s long time guests may know, David and Kris O’Shaughnessy have purchased the Mount Shasta Ranch Bed and Breakfast, and as of October 12, 2018, will be continuing operations after their predecessors, Bill and Mary Larsen. We know that the Larsen’s will be missed by many, but strive to uphold the unparalleled dedication that has been offered by the Mount Shasta Ranch for over 20 years. We look forward to welcoming you.
