Lindy & Dan Fay
Our family fell in love with the McCloud area while visiting friends for the 2005 New Years holiday. We loved the idea of buying a home that allowed us to enjoy the small town right from our front porch, and have everything we needed within a short walking or biking distance. Restoring and renovating Toad Hollow has been a remarkable journey, and we absolutely love sharing it with families from all over the world. After all these years, we are still discovering new places to explore, and never grow tired of the beauty of the changing seasons, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, mountains, and trails.
McCloud is a slice of heaven in Northern California. Enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful mountain getaway without the crowds. Don't worry about holiday freeway traffic jams, just head north on I-5, open the door and relax!
