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 peninsula & a nine hole at Lake Almanor West. OK, we're fishermen, not golfers! 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 of Hwy 147. Just about the middle of the 8 mile strip at 3907 Hwy 147, Lake Almanor, CA 96137. Enjoy sunsets on the deck or fish right off the dock. Bring your boat, there's plenty of excellent fishing holes around. During the summer months we rent Friday to Friday. It truly is a nice spot on the lake.
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).
Rent 6 nights during October through mid-May & the 7th night is free! For a truly affordable vacation on the lake this is the place.

About Deborah Molea
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! We live in the bay area but travel north to the home monthly. It's our favorite place to go!

Why Deborah Molea chose East Shore
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.
What makes this House unique
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!
Sports & Adventure Activities
Perfect home for a family getaway!
This cabin was exactly what we were looking for! The snow came just in time and we were able to go sledding and also enjoy some excellent fishing. The location on the lake is so perfect. We are already talking about coming back in the summer.
Clean, comfy, perfect lake getaway
Recently stayed with our family of four for a Mother’s Day Fishing weekend. The owners were very personable. The cabin was clean, cozy, and just perfect for us. We spend the entire weekend on the dock and had a delightful weekend. We can’t wait to go back !
Very comfortable home, many extras and a great lakefront setting.
Felt right at home and was impressed with all the supplies in the home. The frontside bed was extremely comfortable and the owner was incredibly accommodating with check-in and check-out times. The only negatives for me were that there was no oven (but there is a convection microwave-just not my style) and there are train tracks on the other side of the highway which runs very late at night into the early morning hours. 4 am was a very consistent time even on Sunday.
Lovely Vacation Rental
My fishing buddies (one human, one canine) stayed at Uncle Johnnie's Cabin during the first week of April. The property is located right in the heart of great salmon and trout fishing! The cabin is comfortable and clean and the deck overlooking the lake outstanding! Docks do not go in until May, but the public ramp, Canyon Dam, is only minutes away so really no worry. We caught King Salmon and Rainbows daily and we plan to return every Spring! Thanks Debbie and John. You are great hosts!
great cozy place for and small family
Great cozy place for and small family. can't really beat it. it is right on the lake and made for a great place to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. The family will have a great time. A nice little drive way and the open kitchen and deck made the stay well worth it. The ability to play in the back yard next to the lake was great. the close proximity made a quick trip to Lassen national Park easy!
This property exceeded our expectations! It is beautiful - inside and out! The home is beautifully decorated. Even the upgrades aren't overdone and tie in nicely to all the charm of the home. Open floor plan, the two bedrooms each with their own bathroom, great room, kitchen and dining room all exhibit warmth and charm. The original built-ins add even more charm as does the special bedroom closet! The kitchen is stocked with more than you will need. The owners thought of everything for the kitchen! The king bed is extremely comfortable. Sunsets on the lake can't be beat. The home was even seasonally decorated! Pride of ownership shows in this home and you can tell the owner takes great care of it. It was extremely clean and not full of a lot of "don't do this and don't do that." You could tell the owner wants you to enjoy every minute of your stay. Don't pass up a chance to stay at Uncle Johnnie's cabin when visiting Lake Almanor. You won't be sorry. The owner was very easy to work with; she answered my many emails in more than a timely manner. Can't wait to return!!!
