- For $1,595, you get a four-night stay on a Queen I houseboat (a $3,190 value).

On the deck of a Silverthorn Resort Queen I houseboat, nautical residents drift amid Lake Shasta’s pristine, mountain-lined waters. The spacious boats boast room enough for up to 16 people or 5 President Taft clones, with 4 private staterooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen. On the topside, two separate decks house an outdoor kitchen, hot tub, and waterslide.
Houseboats glide across Shasta Lake’s calm waters, where vacationing anglers can fish for trout, salmon, and bass. The 30,000-acre lake gives plenty of elbow room for wakeboarding, tubing, and other watersports. Around the lake, a network of trails wend hikers and cyclists across the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, where Mount Shasta stands about 50 miles north of the lake.

About Silverthorn Resort
Silverthorn Resort traces its history back to August 1, 1853, when settler George Silverthorn and his wife, Lucy, a native Wintu woman, established one of Northern California's first ferries across the Pit River. The Silverthorn's descendants stayed in the area to the present day, watching the river age and mature into a strapping, full-grown lake with more than 375 miles of shoreline dotted with picturesque docks and cabins. A marina outfitted with a pro shop and general store refills ships and pantries with needed supplies, and a pizza pub refuels visitors with the daily recommended allowance of pizza, live music, and cold beer.
