Close to Lassen National Park, this is a great place to stop for lunch and just enjoy the beautiful, rustic setting. The restaurant is very quaint and filled with lots of wonderful memorabilia. Just looking around at all the interesting items on the walls is enjoyable. Good selection of choices on the menu including a wonderful Asian Chicken Salad, huge burgers, turkey wraps and delicious onion rings. We had a very sweet waitress, Kendra(?), who was helpful with suggestions. They had fresh made Apple Dumplings on our visit and oh my were they delicious! Kendra said one would be plenty to share and she was right! With a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.....heavenly! Would go back in a minute for those Apple Dumplings!

We have gone to Mill Creek Resort for Christmas the last 4 years. Reading some of the reviews, I think some people just see things differently then the rest of us. We love the place, especially in winter. If we arrive and find the table cloth sticky, we wipe it off. The towels were old, but not tattered. We don't have a problem dumping our trash, it's not like a hotel with daily maid service.
We love the old, the feeling you are far away in miles and time. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful. We like to go in winter when CA-172 is only plowed to Mill creek and there are very few cars on the road. Eight feet of new snow December of '08 made it the best trip of all and night walks when all sound is muffled by the snow is very cool. They serve a decent home style breakfast in the store/restaurant.
If you're a bit picky, you night want to stay at a place designed to look old and rustic and avoid the those that really are.

Very close to south entrance of Mt. Lassen National Park and very much a part of the woodsy Northern California experience. The owners are friendly and have put lots of effort into maintaining and upgrading their cabins, which have good mattresses, fully equipped kitchens and modern bathrooms. Good breakfasts and dinners are available at the restaurant on site, and while eating you get to watch the hummingbirds at the hummingbird feeders. A laid back and relaxing place.

We rented a cabin for our 14th anniversary and I had the most wonderful time. The cabin had everything we need except food. It was SPOTLESSLY CLEAN. Yes, rustic, but that is why I was there, I did not want a TV or phone....why...? In an environment this beautiful, who would want to see a TV? Super quiet. Deer in our front yard every day. I had ice tea every day at the restaurant (which feels like you stepped back in time 50 years, without feeling "old", just "quaint") on their deck. The service was wonderful, I drank ice tea and spoke with the Ladies there. Kendra, who is an employee, is quite a "jewel". This felt so homey. I will got back again and again.

We only stayed one night at the Mill Creek Resort for a visit to Bumpass Hell on Lassen.
Our cabin had 2 bedrooms and a living room, plenty of space for our family of 5. We ate at the restaurant and loved the burgers and shakes. We walked down the path and found an awesome swimming hole. The room was "rustic" but very clean.

Sounds like the authors of the negative reviews should stick to Disney cruises, where they can have the crusts cut off their caviar sandwiches for them. These are cabins in the woods.
Our favorite place to unwind, and we're well-traveled. Comfy cabins, hearty meals, no crowds, nature in abundance, and the friendliest, most accommodating staff we've met at any destination the world over. Can't wait to go back. Again.

We wanted to visit Lassen Volcanic National Park for our third wedding anniversary and found that Mill Creek was close by. The location is the only positive thing, and the fact that it is surrounded by beautiful nature. We travel a lot throughout Northern California, and we did not expect Sonoma, or anything like that....we know how to rough it out...we just wanted a simple, modest, clean cabin. Outside, the cabins are cute. Inside...it was all dirty and way too run down.For instance, all beds are full size and the mattresses are 20 years old...no support at all. Could not sleep all night, both nights we were there. They added a thick piece of foam, but it does not help. It hurt! All pots and pans in the kitchen were so badly scratched that they were unusable. The towels are thin and nasty...like the ones you would use for floors once they get old. We did all our cooking on the grill outside . We stayed for two nights, as we paid in advance, and there are really not many choices around there, and they know it...and yes, there is no service, but they even expect you to dump the garbage to their main container in the morning...for $85 a night, this is a ripoff and it was not even a high season. If you are looking for a "we are camping" feeling and nothing more than that, this is your place. The two abandoned, destroyed cabins were outside of ours, which made it depressing and scary in a way. The light above our bed was broken and left to just hang there with a light bulb broken in half in sight. The windows were dirty, the floors were dirty. Maybe they are trying, but it is just so old and run down and that no matter how much they clean it cannot show. Everything was very dusty, and we spent the first forty minutes there cleaning! The shower is good and fast. We spent the entire day outside, so that helped...yet, it would have been nice to come to a clean, rustic cabin at the end of the day, knowing you can actually get a good night sleep. We came home exhausted from sleeping in such uncomfortable bed for two nights. We really tried to make the best of the situation though...
