Oh my we had a great time. Love everything about our extended weekend stay 💕 Lindy has quick responses and all the thoughtful touches it really made my trip as a single mom of three easy and fun and not too much yelling. We loved the back room for the kids to play while making dinner truly a great property.. and the scrub jay did come inside and ate all the peanuts and my daughter absolutely will never forget that bird experience 💕 We will definitely be back😊

We had a great time at Toad Hollow. We celebrated my husband’s Halloween birthday and we did not have to worry bringing any equipment because the place is equipped with everything you need. The communication was super easy and quick and the place looks exactly like it does on the pictures. The neighborhood is very conveniently located and although it’s a lively neighborhood the house is very quiet! Would absolutely recommend to stay there!
Oct 9 - Oct 11, 2020
Apparently, we brought more stuff than we needed. Lindy is very thoughtful and the amenities are great! The place is already set up for a relaxing weekend.We enjoyed your lovely house and thank you for all the quick responses.
Aug 8 - Aug 14, 2020
Cute house and great view of mount Shasta from front porch! Nice seating area in the backyard. Within walking distance to grocery and restaurants. The host is very responsive and helpful with minor questions. 15 minutes drive to Mccloud falls and other swimming holes. We highly recommend and we would book again!
Aug 3 - Aug 6, 2020
This place is a true hidden gem. Located in the quaint little town of McCloud, right in town, with an adorable front porch and back patio dining area. The house is sparkling clean and very well-appointed. Host is incredibly hospitable and responsive. Lots of cute stuff for kids, truly feels like a home away from home. Only complaint during coronavirus times is too many anti-maskers in McCloud! But we had a fabulous time. A+ would stay again.
Thank you so much for everything! We loved all the little touches, like the extra propane tank and grill tools and well-stocked kitchen and sprinkler. Everything was super clean, lots of clear instructions, loved the whole house fan, lots of stuff for the kids, front and back porches were lovely. A+ would come back!
Jul 30 - Aug 1, 2020
We had a great stay at Lindy and Dan's place. They were very easy to communicate with and check-in was a breeze. The house was well-located and very comfortable for our group. We had a wonderful time exploring the Mount Shasta area.
Lindy and Dan, thanks so much for the great stay! We had a wonderful time exploring the Mount Shasta area.
Jul 18 - Jul 26, 2020
This was an amazing base camp for our exploration of the area. We spent mornings and evenings at the house, but for the days we were off visiting the local and not so local spots. There are rivers, falls, swimming holes, forests, lava caves, volcanos, and so forth. This area is so unexplored by outsiders. There are 1000's of miles of maintained and old forest roads. You will never want to leave.
Jul 12 - Jul 16, 2020
What can I say about this place other than it was perfect! My group quickly felt right at home in the space. Lindy & Dan were absolutely amazing and quick to respond with any questions I had. I asked about hiking suggestions for kids and was happy with the suggestions made. Not to mention the guidebook at the house with many sites to visit. I absolutely loved everything about this cozy home and will definitely be back next year!
Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! We can’t believe how quickly our trip flew by. We were sad to leave since we all felt right at home!
Jul 7 - Jul 9, 2020
Toad Hollow was one of the best Airbnb experiences we’ve had. So welcoming and comfortable with everything we needed. We loved the kitchen, the yard, the comfortable beds, cozy living room and beautiful view. The location is great, just a walk away from great food and cute shops. Overall, the best place to stay in McCloud. Thank you Lindy and Dan!
Jun 18 - Jun 21, 2020
It was an amazing weekend and we used many tips from your the host made guidebook to find hikes and swimming holes. Comfortable beds, great location and an amazing host. They had thoughtful touches from a diffuser attachment for curly hair to toys and bath toys for the kids. I almost don’t want to recommend the place so we can have it for ourselves.
Jan 17 - Jan 20, 2020
Lindy and Dan’s was a great pick four our family ski trip. It is close to Shasta Ski Park. We were lucky to get fresh snow and the kids had a great time making snow mans. The house is spacious, very well maintained with brand new bathrooms. Lindy made sure we had a smooth ride. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much lindy and Dan for hosting as at your house. We have great memories for our family.
Dec 21 - Dec 29, 2019
Toad Hollow is a lovely place to stay. We had a beautiful White Christmas. It is very conveniently located to the ski park (5 miles away). Lindy did a wonderful job communicating with us. The information provided about the house and the area was very useful. Would recommend to anybody who asked!
We had a great time. Your house is lovely and very thoughtfully outfitted. We would definitely stay there again!
Sep 13 - Sep 15, 2019
A group of 4 couples stayed here for a wedding in McCloud. The location was perfect — right around the corner from Main Street and walking distance from restaurants and a market. The home was very clean and the Toad Hollow theme was very nicely decorated throughout the home. Lindy sent beautiful photos of the snow capped mountain upon booking 6 months in advance, and began check-in communications a few days before arrival. She also checked up on us during a town-wide power outage and shared where we could find lanterns and candles in the house. Lindy really knows what she’s doing when she’s that prepared! I’d highly recommend anyone to stay here.
Aug 19 - Aug 24, 2019
Great place to stay.....has it all...good quality stuff. Thank you for your hospitality! Sincerely,
Aug 8 - Aug 10, 2019
What an amazing place! We were a big group of adults, children, and dogs, and everyone loved staying at Toad Hollow. The place was clean, comfortable (luxurious sheets, ample towels, etc.), and nothing was lacking to make us feel at home. Lindy was always quick to reply and had great suggestions for us. We stayed 2 nights and only wish we could stay longer. McCloud was not a main stop for our road trip, but it became one when it was the only place available that could accommodate our group. Boy are we glad we discovered this little town! We hope to go back some day and spend more time at Toad Hollow.
Aug 1 - Aug 5, 2019
Amazing place! Lindy & Dan have put a lot of care into the home, it shows on their attention to detail. Super comfortable and I had a great time in the city loved coming home @ Lindy & Dans place. Look no further get this place.
Thankful for this place. I'm already planning my next stay. Thank you for your attention to detail.
Jun 24 - Jun 27, 2019
Toad Hollow is a charming “McCloud” house. The house was super clean, plenty of space and front/back porches are nice to lounge in. Everything you need is available, and the host is super with communication. The yard is fully fenced so our dog could hang out outside. Short walk to stores or park from the house. Highly recommend this home
Thank you for sharing your home; it was cozy and super clean! So easy to relax on the porches and our fur baby loved the fenced in yard! Your communication is top notch too! We will be back again!
Jun 19 - Jun 21, 2019
Lindy and Dan have provided everything a guest could want including automatic floor lights that illuminate your path at night! I've stayed in several Airbnb homes and this lovely home is among the best. And their response time is wonderful.
May 24 - May 27, 2019
Toad Hollow really feels like a home. The kitchen has everything you would need to make a big family meal. McCloud is a quaint little town and a great central spot to explore the surrounding hikes and natural landscapes.This was the most well stocked airbnb we’ve ever stayed in. You’ve really thought of all the right touches to make it feel like a home.
Mar 29 - Mar 31, 2019
A cozy alpine home with a kitchen that picky chefs would love. A great location for getting to the slopes. It was a great place for a group of friends to gather. We loved the porch on a sunny afternoon.
It was nice to be able to stay at a location with all the imaginable kitchen amenities. We loved the information book and all the little touches. It was great to be able to walk down to the pub. Thanks again for allowing us to stay. The light dusting of snow made the Sunny Ski day even more awesome.
Feb 21 - Feb 24, 2019
This was our second time coming to Mt. Shasta with friends for our second annual "Hot Chocolate Campout". We loved the charm and warmth of this space. Very useable and enjoyable for a larger group. Comfy beds. Lovely space. And a good kitchen for many cooks. We will be back.Thank you so much. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. Very comfy & lovely. We’ll be back.
Jan 19 - Jan 21, 2019
Dan and Lindy are the perfect hosts. Great communication. Their place is very cozy, perfect for family gatherings, verywell stocked with everything we need plus more.
Lindy and Dan’s place was perfect for our mom’s 82nd birthday celebration. It was warm, cozy, well stocked with everything we need plus more. Great communication. We couldn’t ask for better hosts. Thank you again!! We had a very nice stay.
Aug 17 - Aug 19, 2018 This home has a cozy feeling with all the amenities you need. A big yard, comfy living room and welcoming kitchen. You are walking distance from the main street in this quiet McCloud neighborhood. Really a treat!
The house was perfect for what we needed. Our activities kept us away from the house more than in it, but we'd love to stay there again and actually spend more time enjoying the house. Thank you.
EllenMar 30 - Apr 1, 2018Toad Hollow is adorable and very well appointed. Plenty of comfortable beds, games for the kids, a BBQ, and a wonderful front porch to just sit and look at Mt. Shasta. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back soon!
Thank you so much for your suggestions and advice about the area. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed your cute home!
Z. Jul 18 - Jul 22, 2018
Had a great time at Toad Hollow. Communication was quick and they were very open and inviting. The house is lovely and has more than enough space for us. We had 2 adults and 3 kids. There are even some toys there for the kids and a movie stash. It’s walking distance from stores and about a 10 min drive from McCloud Falls. Would definitely stay again if I was in McCloud/Mt Shasta area.

We had a fun weekend at Toad Hollow. Not too much snow, but we made the best of it by hiking the falls of the McCloud River and enjoying the town. We'd love to go back sometime!
Wow - A lovely home
Junko Sep 29 - Oct 4 2017·
This was second stay for us from Japan. And we really enjoyed the lovely house. Everything was so great. We are looking forward to coming back again. Gratitude
Jul 21, 2017
I still think of Toad Hollow - a lovely Mill home, well built and beautifully decorated. Mc Cloud is a quiet town that will bring you back in time. The home is situated one street back from the little down town, nice to walk to in the morning. A beautiful view of Mt Shasta from the property. Close to Mc Cloud falls - a got to see ! Also the next town north is Shasta, also really nice. Thank you Lindy - We look forward to coming back.
Emma Jun 23 - Jun 26 2017
Perfect home base for a trip to the mountains.
Julie Jan 27 - Jan 29 2017
Wonderfully charming house, with everything you need (and more!) for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. We felt "at home", except for the majestic view off the front porch! Can't wait to return! Thanks to Lindy and Dan for a fantastic weekend in the snow!
Aug 10 - Aug 13 2016
Toad Hollow Vacation Home is comfortable, cozy house, full of character. Lindy & Dan make it super welcome, and the neighborhood is really nice and friendly. Lindy, thank you so much for your recommendations! We really enjoyed Kyody Coffee and the nice Outdoor ! Looking forward to visiting Toad Hollow again.
Great house! Great location!
Jul 21, 2016
The house was great and exceeded all of our expectations. Kitchen, bath, bedrooms fully equipped with all essentials. The amazing view of Mt. Shasta from the front lawn was spectacular. The owners were extremely kind and helpful and had wonderful recommendations. We would highly recommend this property.

Toad Hollow is located in a quiet neighborhood It has a lovely backyard where we ate dinner. Nice hotel nearby has dinner also? House has everything you could need. Owner was very helpful describing how to use everything and had lots of info on local attractions. I would recommend this home to anyone!

Toad hollow is everything were were hoping for and more! Can't speak highly enough of the comfort and thoughtfulness we experienced with our whole extended family here.

Perfect Memorable Getaway
This sparkling clean vintage home is decorated and refurbished with the most luxurious beds and appliances, and the most tasteful decor from mid-century times. You have to go experience this step back in time---it's very satisfying to one's soul. The Fay Family has made this home a labor of love to share with others, and the communication with Lindy Fay was just amazing....I felt like she was my friend from the first phone call. As we arrived, we found a bottle of wine awaiting us and home-made cookies were delivered in the hour by a local gentleman who also brought organic buffalo treats for our dog, Rhonda. What a nice touch! From the Mountains to the Waterfalls to the Townsfolk---Friendly and Helpful and Welcoming....this quaint li'l town with Water fresh from the mountain...untouched by any chemicals....has so many wonderful places to see. The quaint historical Mercantile with an Old-Fashioned Candy Store, with original Old-Fashioned Wooden Sidewalks.....what an experience. So many old buildings from the early days when this town was a booming lumber mill...you don't see these anymore. We toured a few, and were blown away. The three seperate waterfalls that await---just beautiful. We even had one woman, as we stopped and asked directions, invite us to "Cow Camp" to come eat with them and swim in one "giant waterhole" with everyone---an event that didn't happen as we had to leave town, but next time, we will go find that waterhole! So, I hope I can convince you that....... You'll love Toad Hollow!!!

We had a wonderful stay in heaven...peaceful, clean, comfy, perfect! This house is in an excellent location, right downtown McCloud with a beautiful view of Mt. Shasta right out the door. The house is amazingly big and is in top shape. The property manager not only stopped by on the first day to answer questions, offer tourist help but a plateful of yummy cookies baked by his wife. Upon reserving, I spoke with the lovely lady owner who was warm and bubbly offering suggestions of places to visit surely conveying her love for the area. With all there is to do in the area, we drove to Burney Falls (40 mins) and had a picnic. Otherwise, relaxing in the house was also our favorite thing to do.
Carol 07/30/11 My family of three has thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at Toad Hollow now for three summers in a row and we look forward to our next visit. The house is spacious and charming and Lindy does a great job of making us feel welcome and comfortable.
Top Location in McCloud
We have stayed at just about every rental in McCloud as we go annually for a family trip. This location has it all....the comforts of home with the rustic nature of the old McCloud mill town left intact. The kitchen is one of the best I have used, and we are always cooking. The beautiful claro walnut on the island is a delight to look at and the house is laid out well and is extremely charming. The beds are some of the most comfy we have ever enjoyed while in McCloud!
S & C Families February,
Gracious comfort, ironed sheets, antique wooden floor boards washed by sunlight streaming in through sparkling windows. Fresh soft colors of sage and mint, and heated floors in the upstairs bathroom. A fully equipped kitchen where our friends whipped up a morning quiche, and then out exploring an unspoiled area. We came looking for snow but instead found a lovely little historic town with a bake sale in progress, an old train yard and the friendliest people in little shops and stores. There is a large nearby sledding hill for kids, and even when there's no fresh snowfall it is a short drive to Mount Shasta if you want serious white stuff. In the evening we were back at Toad Hollow for laughter and wine, and then all of us cozy and warm watching a movie together. This is our second time at Toad Hollow, and if you cherish a family experience in a charming and gracious setting, make it your home away from home too.
P, H, et. al 13,
Well, none of us thought we’d be back this soon – but you know how lax parole hearings are these days…
It’s been a wonderful visit again. Cozy evenings and (??) mornings with friends – bottles of wine, quiche and coffee, laughter and warmth.
The place is beautiful as always. You did such a great job renovating! You can hardly make out the signs of our last stay. In hindsight you were soo right – horses are outdoor animals.
Too soon we have to leave- but the memories of our visit remain in our hearts and in the police blotter.
Already we look forward to our next visit. It’s so cute how you try to change the address! All love,
President’s Day Weekend
After a beautiful day sledding – a fine dinner and wonderful friends - a game was played – a small plastic cap*, forcefully pushed towards a small hole in the middle of the table – much cheering, much yelling, the fear that we would be here all night trying to do the impossible? Yet, it was done, the small plastic piece disappearing into the hole in the table – who won? Who cares?! We were all winners, here in McCloud, enjoying the people, the terrain, the house –
Thank you Fays for the house and the chance to relax and enjoy the “McClouders”
Besides/in addition to lots of HS homework being done, we folks manage to shop, view lovely art, play ragtime on the Mercantile piano, march along the RR to the zen Falls, sled down concrete snow hills, and fluffy bunny flat hills – taking turns for the above fun stuff. Oh, and the police blotter.
Sorry to have to go home, but we carry all these refreshing moments with us.
……. The Mixed Nuts Strike again

Dear Fay Family,
You have a beautiful, lovely and comfortable home. You have made it an oasis for relaxation and comfortability. I lived sitting on the front porch drinking coffee and watching the bluebirdscome sit in the yard. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Toad Hollow was even more than we had hoped for. There was plenty of room for all four couples and the dog. The home was comfortable, homey, historical, well maintained, clean and well stocked. We used the outdoor grill every night, eating dinner outside in the fresh mountain air. After four days of fishing, wandering around the local shops, exploring the lava tube caves, waterfalls, and mountain lakes, then ending our day by relaxing on the porch, we left feeling relaxed, and refreshed. We had never visited McCloud before, but we instantly felt at home and are now planning our next trip. Thank you for making this a memorable vacation with great friends.

It was great to see everybody! It was the first time I’ve seen most of these people in about 9 years. Thank you for giving me the chance to see my family.
FIRST TIME IN 13 YEARS WE’VE ALL BEEN TOGETHER
H P, et al
OK so first of all- it wasn’t our fault; it was already lit, who knew that could happen. We thought it was suppose to make that noise, and the bear just made things awkward…
Ha ha just kidding. How wonderful that you have shared this with us – it feels like we are staying with good friends – your love and caring for this home are in every room. Just wonderful.
Right now the sun is streaming in through the bright windows; upstairs the sound of our boys stirring; in the kitchen, the voices of dear friends. Soon, after eggs and coffee, back to the clear fresh air and children’s laughter on the toboggan hill. Heather has met lots of folks in town – I swear she knows their life stores already – and has declared them so friendly and warm – I think she’s half in love the place already. Too soon we must leave – but a small part of what we have found here comes with us, and we treasure it.

Thank you so much for allowing floor 2 of the Pierce J dorm at UC Davis to enjoy the weekend at your wonderful home. During our stay, we went hiking, swam in the lake, and umped into the river. The scenery here is absolutely gorgeous, and the house is quaint and adorable. We loved preparing a pasta feast, making delicious s’mores, and gathering around the TV to watch Forest Gump. This weekend was perfect – we are so grateful for your hospitality. We can’t wait to come back!!!

Hi, I’m Alex. I enjoyed staying here. Unluckily, I only got to stay here 4 a little bit. I’m really good at washing dishes. My mom makes me do them a whole lot, but I enjoy her bossing me around. I am very talented.

Dear Lindy and Dan,
Thank you for sharing your wonderful cozy home. Everywhere you look, it is so nicely decorated. I loved the claw foot – old fashioned bathtub. It reminds me of my grandmother’s home in Wisc.
Next time I would love to spend a week to see more of the area. We did walk up to the Middle Falls, and my husband and son went fishing and caught trout.
We spent a lot of time at my daughter’s boyfriend’s parents place in Shasta Forest.

We had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. We skied for four days and had a great time. Today we woke up to a foot of snow! Thank you for sharing your home with us. It’s a trip my three kids will never forget!

Our stay at Toad Hollow was very relaxing and charming. We love the house and walking all around town!
The whole place was covered in snow – snowed almost our whole stay!
Of course being from the lowlands we loved the wonderland we woke up to each day!
Thank you for giving us a short vacation in your home – we will be back again.
