Shasta Marina at Packers Bay Mirage I Houseboat.

Lakefront room with kitchen and fireplace
Mirage I is a 15′ x 56′ houseboat with a pontoon substructure. It sleeps anywhere from 2 to 14 people. There are walk-around decks and a cabin built with a home atmosphere in mind.
The cabin has central heat and air. The interior is finished in warm light maple and earth tone fabrics. There are two staterooms with double beds and one stateroom with two single bunks. There are two private lofts with double beds that are accessed by a stairway. The dining booth converts to a double bed and the living room offers a futon that folds into a double bed. (That comes to a total of 6 double beds and 2 single beds–sleeping 14.) Each bedroom has a fan, mirror, reading light, and storage.
There are 1.5 bathrooms. The half bathroom includes a sink, vanity, mirror, and toilet. The full bathroom has a sink, vanity, mirror, toilet, and glass-enclosed shower.
The kitchen is equipped with a full size range with an oven, a microwave, two RV-size electric refrigerators with freezers, a trash compactor, a coffee maker, a toaster, a blender, a double stainless steel sink, a kitchen island, and beautiful cabinetry for storage. We provide quality utensils to prepare and serve your meals with ease and grace. The lounge makes you feel right at home with amenities like direct/indirect lighting and a gas fireplace.
There are large windows throughout to let the natural light in. We provide an entertainment center with a self-tracking satellite TV that offers premium channels, and a DVD player. There are two stairways to take you to the rooftop–one on the front deck and one on the rear. Also, on the rear deck, there is an outdoor shower and a swim ladder. The rooftop is designed for relaxation and driving in comfort under the hardtop canopy. There is a stereo with a CD player, a six-person hot tub, a wet bar, a swim slide, and plenty of space for sunbathing on top of the penthouse.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this houseboat offer fireplaces and coffee/tea makers. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include showers.

First Time Houseboating
What a fun and adventurous vacation for us! We were first timers to houseboating but enjoy unique experiences and the location was a perfect halfway meeting point for all of us. Look at You Tube videos and read up on houseboat operation before you go. They do give you an orientation and allow you to video it and there's a binder with all the information as well. However, if you are not a boater, it's a lot to process. Fortunately, they respond to your phone calls when you have problems. Phone service is most reliable in the middle of the lake. The boat' kitchen is well equipped, the hot tub and slide into the water gave us hours of entertainment. Quarters are tight in the bedrooms. Pack light as you can in terms of clothes. There were 4 of us and although the boat sleeps 14 I really wouldn't be comfortable with more than eight; you would be stepping all over each other. The stars at night are spectacular and views of the mountain from the lake are breathtaking. I'm so glad we chose this as our first vacation in over a year.
