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

A Little Piece of Paradise in Butte Canyon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights when we went to visit my mother who is in independent living in Paradise, California.

This house has everything you need for a short or long stay. We took full advantage of the huge deck in the back to grill and just spend hours relaxing and enjoying the view and listening to Butte Creek. Quick trip to and from Chico for supplies or eating out. Owner was super helpful up front with information. House is stocked with everything you need for a great stay. Master bedroom has a most comfy bed! I wish I LIVED here! It is indeed " a perfect get away"...

Our stay at the Perfect Get a Way!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Thanksgiving 2014 break here at this charming home. We came up to enjoy the holiday with our Chico College student. This rental was big enough to accommodate 2 big families and the kitchen was ideal for cooking up a feast! The view from the back porch is breath taking and made for many great photos and memories. We hope to be back in the spring!

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!
