Lake Almanor House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)
Lake Almanor is located 165 miles north of Sacramento, nestled amongst the pines where the Cascade Mountains meet the Sierra Nevadas. At elevation 4500 feet it is the third largest manmade lake in California and best known for its prime hunting and fishing grounds.
There are two golf courses on the lake, Bailey Creek in the penninsula & a nine hole at Lake Almanor West. Mount Lassen National Park is just 26 miles away, has hiking (to the top!), picnicking, and very scenic views. Play tennis in the peninsula or bike around the lake (many other trails for cycling to choose from). This cozy home is situated on the east shore. Enjoy sunsets on the deck or fish right off the dock. Bring your boat, there's plenty of excellent fishing holes around.
Shopping and antiquing can be found in all the quaint old fashioned towns around the area. Dine out in Chester, the peninsula, try Westwood's famous 'Buffalo Chips Pizzeria' ('Cabin Fever' is our favorite). For a truly affordable vacation on the lake this is the place.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My family & I had a great time & loved the clean, comfortable feel of your home. You & your husband take excellent care of the home & property & I hope to rent from you again.
We purchased the home in 1999 as strictly a business investment. Little did we realize how in love with the entire area we'd be. John loves to fish & sure gets his limit!
The history of the Lake Almanor Basin is fascinating (we keep a book on the shelf to share with our guests). We found out the home was built in 1953 by Finnis Mack Saunders, nicknamed 'Chief', a foreman for the Red River Lumber Company. The knotty pine walls & ceiling in the kitchen are priceless! We've respectfully done some remodelling while keeping the old world charm of the home.
Uncle Johnnie's Fishing Cabin is situated on the middle of the east shore & is truly a nice spot on the lake. We enjoy sharing the home as much as our guests enjoy vacationing there!
