We went up to Lassen over the Veteran's day weekend with our two young children, and had the best experience at Mill Creek Resort. It was a last minute trip, and we had not done much planning, and we headed out of Redding to spend the night near Lassen to go hiking the next day. The towns of Mineral and Mill Creek had for the most part shut down for the winter, but by chance, we happened upon Mill Creek Resort.
Mill Creek is a rustic resort, the old-time experience that you can't really find anymore. They rent cabins that are self-sufficient, but we were not prepared to cook for ourselves. They also have a one room store/restaurant where we were more than happy to take our dinner and breakfast the next morning.
In two meals we got to know the people running the place, they are friendly and helpful and enjoy meeting the people who are staying with them. It is the kind of place where it is easy to strike up a conversation with the people sitting at the table next to you. They talked about how people had been coming for year after year, and it is easy to see why people would return.
As we drove away, stuffed by a huge breakfast served in front of the roaring wood stove, my 6 year old talked about how he wanted to make sure that we came back to Mill Creek Resort to 'hang out with his friends more'.
Rustic-- and great because of it!
