Chico Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 5000 sq ft, 5 bedroom house and bungalow, 5 bath, creek, canyon view

***If you love the idea of your family and friends visiting, cooking, playing or just being together in a large, comfortable, quiet home, the Butte Creek Canyon Lodge is the place for you! The Lodge is a beautiful 5000 square feet home located in a serene canyon 15 minutes from Chico. If you want to be together you can; if you want privacy, you can have that too.

September dates are still open!

Thanksgiving is still open!

**Fish in Butte Creek right in front of the Lodge:

Open November 15 through February 15, catch and release only, barbless hooks.

**Family Friendly - we now provide a Graco Travel Lite Crib - bring your own linens.

*We love last minute rentals - just give me a call and we'll see what's possible.

**We now have a cool HORSESHOE PIT in the meadow next to the lodge! Ready to make some spinners or sparks off the peg? There's also plenty of room in the meadow to set up a volleyball net or disc golf cage.

***We now provide DirecTV.

****We provide linens and towels. The Lodge has a washer and dryer for your use.

The Lodge and Bungalow sit on 5 acres of beautiful natural canyon land. The house was modeled after lodge style houses in Lake Tahoe with large log posts and river rock walls decorating the fireplaces. It's a very family friendly, beautiful 4 bedroom home plus an attached private 1 bedroom bungalow that can easily accommodate 12 + guests.

While the Lodge is fully equiped for an extended family vacation, the Bungalow is perfect for a single or couples romantic gettaway. The Bungalow has a microwave and small refridgerator, walk in shower and king size bed.

The Lodge is perfect for family reunion or a relaxing place to stay after a wedding, baby or wedding shower or other group gatherings. It has 2 large kitchens, 5 bathrooms with 3 walk-in showers, 2 jetted soaking bathtubs, 2 wood burning stoves, 3 zone full house heating and air conditioning, a game room with ping-pong table, and a large deck with spectacular views of Butte Creek Canyon. Another deck overlooks Butte Creek for hanging out watching for Bald Eagles, osprey, otters, beaver, salmon, wild turkeys, or even the occasional bear. We built a safe set of stairs so you can easily walk down to Butte Creek and swim where Chinook salmon congregate during the summer. The Lodge is an easy 15 minute drive into Chico. There are plenty of recreational opportunities available including hiking, road and mountain biking, swimming, tubing, snorkeling or just relaxing by the creek. The Centerville Museum and the historic Honey Run Covered Bridge are nearby.

**If you would like to rent my property, please contact me (the owner) directly by phone before you send any money.

Max George purchased this lodge in 2011

Why Max George chose Chico

This is a unique and beautiful property on Butte Creek. We love the natural setting of Butte Creek Canyon while being able to drive to Chico in 15 minutes. It's serene and quiet. The Lodge is a large home - a great place for family and friends to stay together.

What makes this lodge unique

It's quiet except for the sound of the creek flowing around the bend.

wedding hangout

  • 5 of 5
My daughter got married up the road at Centerville Estates. I was a great place to stay for 2 nights. Out of town family stayed and got to visit. I am so glad I found Butte Creek Lodge. The owners are fab and very helpful. The place was stocked with things you might forget at home.
My family wants to go back when we can really enjoy the place.. We were at the wedding sight most of the time. thank you Max for sharing you lodge.

Expectations Exceeded

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from our weekend at the lodge. No one wanted to leave. The kids (1, 3, 4 & 6) were begging to stay. It was the first time in years that we had all gotten away together and it was better than we could have imagined.

There were 13 of us and we had plenty of room. The kids had tons of room for hide and seek, the games and toys provided were so fun, and the tire swing was a huge hit. We spent a big part of the day swimming in the river. We brought lots of rafts and a blow up boat and it was perfect for floating and relaxing.

Max was great, house was great, all of the amenities were great. Not one single complaint. We'll be planning another trip to the lodge soon!

Beautiful Huge Home in Chico

  • 5 of 5
I went up to Chico and stayed at this home for a weekend getaway with 11 of my friends. We had an amazing time! This house was perfect for our stay. The house is huge, it is right on the river, there is horse shoe in the yard, there is a game room downstairs, the kitchen was great for cooking, and there were plenty of bathrooms for all the guests. The house was perfect! AND Max was a great host! I definitely recommend this house!

Fantastic place situated at a nicely secluded spot on the creek.

  • 5 of 5
We have nothing but good things to say about this property, Max (owner), and Richard (his partner). Several families met up here for a reunion of sorts. We have young kids on up to teenagers. All the kids and adults had a wonderful time. The lodge is even better than the pictures show, providing everything you need. The creek is a close walk so we could come and go as we liked. We didn't spend a lot of time on the fantastic deck over the creek, due to our younger kids (deck has some higher chairs, and the stairs lead right down to the creek). Instead we enjoyed the beautiful canyon views from the dining room, dining deck, and main room. When we wanted creek time we threw life jackets and river shoes on the kiddos and headed down. River is pretty calm, we were just cautious given the depth of water and the young age of kids (and lots of them). Max had plenty of good tips, so ask if you have questions. Another bonus is that the drive into town is easy 15-20 min. You can rent just the bungalow for a romantic getaway, but having the whole place yourself would be incredible (maybe too big for that, though).

Can't wait to go back next year. We may do 4 or 5 nights instead of 3!!

Planned a low-key bachelor party. Originally just wanted a nice place to relax as I assumed we'd be out most of the time. However, everyone loved the lodge & the surrounding property so much we spent the majority of the time enjoying the scenery, playing horse shoes & cooling off in the creek. The lodge is beautiful, clean & very organized. Max is professional and accommodating. I would love to continue coming back here in the future.

Exceeded our Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Lodge for our son's graduation from Chico State. (Go Wildcats!!) The property exceeded our expectations. The property is absolutely stunning. The property owner met us there upon our arrival. The house was large enough for all of us to have our own "space". After the graduation, we had a small celebratory gathering for people who traveled from afar. Everything was perfect. The second kitchen downstairs provided us extra room for prepared food.

The surroundings were so serene and tranquil. We saw salmon spawning every day, deer exploring the property and other forms of nature. Our kids had a ball.

Thank you allowing us to make family memories at the Lodge, Max! Now that our son is graduated, we're already looking for an "excuse" to get back to Chico just to stay at the Lodge!! -)

This property is located in Butte Creek Canyon in the foothills of the Cascades a 15 minute drive to Chico. There is a year round large creek that runs through it. Butte Creek supports the largest run of wild, naturally spawned Spring Run Chinook Salmon in California,' according to the Friends of Butte Creek. In September, the Wild and Scenic Film Festival is held in the Sierra Nevada Brewery Big Room. October is the time to see the Salmon spawn in Butte Creek. Catch and release fishing in allowed only from February through April - see the Department of Fish and Game for details. Butte Creek Canyon is rich in gold mining history - The Coleman Museum in Centerville is about 1 mile from the property and has an excellent collection of gold mining memorabilia and Maidu Indian artifacts. The Honey Run Covered Bridge was built in 1884 and is the only 3-level covered bridge left in the US. The canyon is filled with wildlife: ubiquitous deer, beaver, otter, bear, mountain lion, bobcat, Chinook salmon, all kinds of birds including wild turkey, bald eagle, blue heron, duck, and osprey. If you like to kayak a mild to moderate running creek, kayaking in the winter is especially popular. Summertime is the best for a 3 hour tubing ride form the property to the Honey Run Covered Bridge. It's a blast to swim with the salmon with your mask and snorkel in the swimming hole in front of the house.
