Silverthorn Resort

Silverthorn Resort offers diverse onshore and offshore activities to explore the beauty of Shasta Lake. With calm water averaging 75 degrees in the summer, swimming, fishing and water sports are favorite activities. Shoreline trails offer hiking, mountain biking, and wildlife viewing. With six houseboat models available, from the luxuriously appointed Queen I Houseboat to the quaint atmosphere of the Executive Houseboat, Silverthorn Resort has a vessel for every vacation style. All houseboats are complete floating “suites” with up to 1500 square feet of cabin and deck space. Each houseboat features railed decks, swim platforms, slides, roof-top sundecks, propane BBQs, and modern and convenient kitchens. Our full service marina has boats, watercraft and water toys available for rent, while our floating store is stocked with groceries, ice, beer, wine and snacks. For large groups or those that prefer to stay on land, we have cabins for rent along the forested shore and freshly made pizza at Silverthorn Pizza and Pub.
