Get Out of the Kitchen and Eat at the CookHouse

Aside from the activities and beautiful scenery, food is a very important part of any trip. Luckily, the CookHouse at Bridge Bay Resort has a variety of different foods to satisfy everyone in the family. From breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, you will never go hungry on Shasta Lake!

Why Eating Out is Top of Your Vacation to Do List

Vacationing at Bridge Bay Resort is like coming home. Enjoying your ultimate Californian break has something for everyone.

Swim, slide and explore the 365 miles of pristine water. Hike, fish, bike and get up close to nature. Or sleep under a canopy of bright stars. And when you’re done with a full day of exploring? Take a trip to the Cookhouse for a delicious bite to eat.

Whatever your Shasta Lake houseboat adventure looks like, it should not include spending hours in the kitchen. Parents, it’s time to give yourself a break from shopping, prepping, cooking, and cleaning up.

A Vacation That Feels Like Home
