About Carol or Boya Faust

This was our family vacation home and when my parents passed away we were already in the vacation rental business and wanted to share this special place with family friends and guests.

I have always thought of Westwood as a fishing dream destination as I have spent so many hours chasing the trout here.

Carol or Boya Faust purchased this house in 1952

Why Carol or Boya Faust chose Lake Almanor

A Town is Born

Here in the heart of the wilderness

Where wildlife roamed at will

Amid primeval forest

Where even time stood still,

Where rushing rivers downward dashed

Through meadows green with waving grass

Snowy peaks towered to the skies

Amid smiling lakes that watched closeby.

Where the trees talked to the stars at night

And the moon looked down and smiled.

Where the breeze whispered secrets

And the lakes extend for miles.

Into this place of towering pines

Where natures voise excelled all chimes

Came man with ax and saw and blade

And out of this land so fair and free

a town was born for you and me.

In the heart of the Sierras

You will find it nestled there

The little town of Westwood

with traditions quaint and rare.

As years go by and times holds sway

its houses may fall into decay,

It's people may leave for parts unknown

The years and streets may be overgrown

Even the breeze may seem to sigh

with memories of the days gone by.

But in our hearts and in our minds

there will always be a Westwood

There among the pines.

By Ethel Hurd (recorded in 1949)

What makes this house unique

The Country Cottage is a very comfortable home that welcomes you to really relax, explore our town and the surrounding areas

I have placed a booklet in the home letting you in on some of our in town events, places to eat, and little known areas like the Subway Lave Caves to have to see to believe.

Everything is provided here. Just bring your toothbrush and clothes and food you want to eat unless you want to eat at our local restaurants. ( The Old Mill ( breakfast and lunch) Buffalo Chips ( PIzza +++) The Moonlight Cafe ( new dinner house)

snack shacks and taco stands too.

We also have Youngs Super Market that has been here since the early 50's and is a fixture in our town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bring waht food you care to and if you need a couple of tiems the country store is well stocked.

The town museum is professionally arranged and the tall Paul Bunyon and sculpture on the main drag lets you know that this was once the largerst lumber town west of the Rockies.

HIking trails, fishing streams and lakes give you rainbow trout fo ryour dinner or bass from the lakes.

Did anyone say that Westwood has the best pizza you have ever eaten at Buffalo Chips

Lovely vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is a comfortable, clean, well equipped place for a few friends to stay for several days. My group fixed meals, toured historic Westwood, ate out at the two recommended nearby restaurants, and explored Westwood's surrounding areas. We all had a good time.

Owner's Response: I know we are located close to Mt Lassen Volcanic park. I have not been to Mt Shasta from Westwood so not sure of the distance..
I think our home reminds people of what Grandma's home was or would be. It has that kind of feeling associated with it. we have antique items of yesteryears. but wilh all modern conveniences.
