I just wanted to tell every one about this place. We celebrated our 22th year of house boating on Lake Shasta with Silverthorn last year. Each year 19 to 25 of us gather at Silverthorn marina from all over the U.S. and Canada.

A bit of history, in 1988 five friends were looking to spend a few days fishing and relaxing some where and we met Sue and Jane at the boat show and they offered us the "Fisherman Special" and we said yes. We went and had the time of our lives! The next year we could not wait to go back. Over the years we told our other friends about the trip and they wanted to go. As time went by guys moved away but they would come back for the trip each year.

We now have folks that come from Oregon, Arizona, Utah, Maine, Hawaii, Georgia and all over California from San Diego to San Francisco. There is even one that fly's in from Canada every year for the trip. Many years ago my dad came with us now my son plus we have 3 other sets of dads and sons make the trip. A lot cases we only see each other once a year on this trip, it's like a family reunion for us.

Each year Silverthorn has been outstanding in working with us. They book our boats (we are up to at least 3 Presidential's and a patio boat.) each year and work very closely to make our trip the best it can be. We have found the houseboats to be equipped with modern kitchens with range/oven, dishwasher, microwave, trash compactor, two refrigerators, and plenty of cabinet and counter space. Even the dishes, pots, pans, and silverware are included we just bring the food. The very few times we have had a problem Silverthorn has handled it very fast and kept our trip on track so we had best vacation experience possible.

The fishing has for 22 years always been good, never in all that time has it been a bad year. The lake, the deer, the Eagles just the very day view never gets old. Add to that the fact Silverthorn staff and their houseboats and you will have a Shasta Lake adventure to remember forever.

I have and do refer Silverthorn as the place to go for a good vacation. Keep up the good work and we will see you for year 23.

Thank you,
Tom E.

We have been vacationing on lake Shasta with my family for over 7 years now. The last 4 years have been with Silverthorn Resort. Their boats are nice, they have lowered their prices over the past two years which allowed us to continue to afford our family vacation.
They are always friendly. Teri at the front desk always greets us by name and takes the time to talk with us. We usually go into the resort at least 3 times during our week to buy supplies and have Pizza at their restaurant. They have the best Pizza! We usually rent the Executive model, but this year we have rented the Presidential model. We can't wait. We recommend this resort, as we have found it to have clean boats and friendly staff. We have had to have a repair man come out to the boat two times before, but they fixed our problem very quickly.

Our boat broke down the first morning and we had to wait nearly 3 hours for it to get repaired because, as we were rudely explained by an annoyed employee ??there are two other boats in line to get fixed ahead of you, so you??ll just have to wait.? God forbid we expect our boat to run after we shell out thousands of dollars for the weekend. It would not have even turned into a big deal if any of the 3 employees we talked to was simply polite or apologetic, but everyone just wanted to try to convince us that this was ??completely normal? and argue about how long we had really been waiting.

On top of this, the BBQ was old and barely put out any heat?it literally took 45 minutes to cook a few steaks. Then the generator stopped working the final night, and the marina was already closed so there was nothing we could do about it. We just had to live without music and appliances for the night.

When we turned the boat in they measured our gas tanks and charged us $453 for gas. Already suspecting dishonesty, I told them I would like to watch them fill up. The employee argued with me for a few minutes then finally gave in and let me go with them. The total came to a mere $394 - nearly $60 less than their estimate.

This company is sneaky, rude, disrespectful, and incredibly dishonest. Their prices are good if you are one of the lucky ones who get a boat with no problems and are willing to be swindled with inflated gas estimates. There employees are fine until you need anything from them; then they become defensive and rude. There are plenty of other marinas on Shasta, do yourself a favor and choose any of them but Silverthorn.

(It's also incredibly difficult to get to, and don't even try to get a ski boat to Silverthorn up the thin ribbon of asphalt they call a road)

This a nice resort with all amenities right on the lake, except the restaurant which is up at the top. There is a well stocked general store and a large clothing store.

Silverthorn has very nice well appointed houseboats. Their prices are on the high end. You could probably find a better value for your money elsewhere.
