Lassen Volcanic National Park just made Frommer’s Top Destinations for 2009. But where will you stay? If you enjoy camping, then you’ll have plenty of options. But if you prefer to “camp” in fine cotton linens, comfy beds, and be served a warm breakfast in the morning, you need to stay at Bridge House Bed and Breakfast in Redding, Calif.
Located on Riverside Drive, Bridge House is a short walk to some of Redding’s best dining establishments and many downtown shops. A short walk takes you to the Market Street Bridge and the river trail, leading to the world-famous Sundial Bridge and Caldwell Park.
Bridge House has four guest rooms, each decorated in the style of the bridge for which it’s named: The Sundial Bridge, the Diestelhorst Bridge, the Dog Creek Bridge, and the Market Street Bridge. Breakfast features a buffet of homemade baked goods, fruit, granola, and a savory entree. Complimentary high speed internet is available for guests.
Redding is a perfect place to base out of while visiting Lassen Volcanic National Park. Lassen has hot springs, sulpher ponds, heat vents, and 150 miles of hiking trails. The park is open year-round, with beautiful lakes, streams, meadows and waterfalls during the spring, summer and fall, and turns into a winter playground with lots of winter ski activities.
Lassen is an easy 30 mile drive from Redding, the second sunniest city in the nation. And talk about quality of life! Whiskeytown Lake is just a few miles out of town, at the base of the Trinity Alps, where hiking, camping and fishing are everywhere. Shasta Lake is full of summertime fun and Mount Shasta is easily accessible for skiing and snowboarding in the winter.
