Overview

Chico Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House on Butte Creek, 2500 Sq Ft, 4 Bedrooms (Sleeps 8-10)

Chico Creekfront Perfect Getaway in beautiful Butte Creek Canyon. 2500 sq ft home GREAT for family reunions, getaways or as a romantic retreat or stay. Swim with the salmon all summer in the deep hole off the back deck where 40-100 salmon stay from April to October when they spawn. Watch them jump as you enjoy dinner on the deck or use the mask & snorkle to see them up close as they flutter by you. Take the sturdy stairs that lead down to some great diving rocks. There are kayaks to rent if you wish to adventure down to the historical cover bridge. It is an easy go of it but exciting and beautiful all the same. Enjoy bird watching or get lucky to see deer, quail, turkey vultures, otters or a variety of waterfowl. Listen to the creek as you soak in the tub or enjoy the hot tub on the back deck. This is truly a perfect getaway just minutes from Chico. If you love to bike, it is a perfect 7 mile ride downhill to the 6 hole golf course or bike up for a great scenic workout. This is also a historical sight and you can learn about the diamondville area in the gold rush days at the museum just 2 miles further up. Else, inquire about a special guest pass to get access to the mining cave on site.

About Nancy Jensen

I work full time at the local community college but this getaway I bought is my true dream and renting it helps for me to afford it while continuing to work on making it even better year after year. It feeds my soul and my love of nature just minutes out of town. I go here to unwind, play with my friends and family. We ride dirt bikes on the local trails and swim with the fish. My 16 year old son is a pro on the rope swing. My dream is to share it with others, improve it each year and have others appreciate it as much as I do and hopefully return year after year or tell their friends.

Nancy Jensen purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

All that I expected

  • 5 of 5
I was raised in Chico and wanted my kids and grand-kids to have the Chico experience. What a wonderful home to do it from. One of the best swimming holes in all of Butte Creek just down the STEEP stairs. We even took our 2 year old down, and now that she is back home about twice a day she will say,"swimming"?
We had cool ( mid 90's) weather and the house was very comfortable.
Watching all the bird life from the back deck is spectacular.

Beautiful setting with lots of wildlife

  • 4 of 5
I would have rated this Excellent if it hadn't been 108 degrees. Obviously the weather had nothing to do with the property. We were preparing for my daughters outdoor wedding which was that weekend and it was unusually hot for the area. We enjoyed the property, the inner tubes we took down the creek, the deck where we watched the fish and the front yard where we watched a cute bushy fox cross to the neighbors yard.The property had everything we needed and more......

The Perfect Getaway is just that!

  • 5 of 5
We shared this home with two other families w/small children. One preschool age and two toddlers. It was a great place for us all. The home it self is set up perfectly for spending time w/friends. The kitchen living room and small bar all open up to one another keeping everyone (especially the kids) in view. The view from the back patio is amazing and so relaxing, even with the chilly mornings we all had our coffee & breakfast out there for a spectacular start to our day. We used the jaquzzi out there in the evenings after putting the kids to bed, a perfect way to wrap up the day. Just a short drive to down town where there are so many great places to visit. Thanks for a great stay! We'll be back!

The Butte Creek house

  • 4 of 5
This house was comfortable for a larger group. We enjoyed spending time in the large living room and on the patio or deck. The owner checked in to see if we needed any supplies or assistance several times during our visit. There were no large glaring problems. There were a few spider webs and dead bugs in corners of rooms on arrival, but as might be expected in a large home in the country. Some would prefer not to have carpet in a bathroom, but perhaps that is owner preference. Staying in early spring is recommended when everything is lush and green!

Better Than We Even Imagined!

  • 5 of 5
My two grown children and I wanted to spend the weekend at a relaxing, beautiful place. Trust me, we scoured the internet and settled on "A Perfect Getaway." Our expectations were too limited. The house is wonderful, large, light-filled and full of every comfort you could think of. My daughter's favorite thing: listening to the rushing river right below the deck; my son's favorite: the comfortable chairs and couch for watching the large, surround-sound TV and my favorite: the challenging but fun climb down the stairs and ladder to the gorgeous river, easily viewed from the upper deck (granted, at age 65 and with a very bad ankle, I looked a bit foolish but had a ball - so pretty, so refreshing!) We could see salmon jumping to feed at dusk in the protected river.
There are so many things to do -- play pool; cook on the large, new barbeque; sit and talk on the spacious, open deck; choose from a large stock of movies; cook in the marvelously appointed kitchen; play volleyball outside on the trimmed grassy area; hike down to the river and swim in the large pool or just gaze across the river and up the canyon; take a nap in the large master or other bedrooms; relax in the large hot tub.........and there is more.
"A Perfect Getaway" is true to its name. We have rented dozens of homes and cabins in northern California and Tahoe and this is one we cannot wait to return to. It is lovely, peaceful, open, quiet, comfortable and, most importantly, in the heart of nature. You won't be sorry!

I would highly recommend this property! The house is located in such a beautiful setting. It was such a blessing that we had stayed in such a peaceful and welcoming retreat. We had been up in Chico for our Daughters wedding and coming "home" to this home instead of a hotel really topped off our week!

I can't wait to come back in the Summer! This would be a great place for a large family to stay and enjoy "The Perfect Getaway".
