Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths

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). 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 California

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cozy cabin feel on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My son and I spent 4 nights at Uncle Johnnie's. We spent our days fishing off the dock and our evenings enjoying a fire, playing games and watching movies. The house has a cabin feel, but has updated bathrooms, comfortable beds and the kitchen is fully equipped with all the cooking tools you will need. We used the BBQ on the deck each night and ate on the dock one evening, enjoying the views of the lake and Mt. Lassen. We will definitely return.

Nice little cabin near the lake!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, my family really loved this cabin! It's small and cozy but not cramped. We came here in February so there wasn't that much snow but it was still enjoyable. The wifi and hot water shut off a few times, but they started working again in a few minutes. This cabin has everything you need, ranging from spices to towels to laundry machines. We'll definitely be coming back!

A Lovely Winter Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming little house. Rustic but comfortable and a beautiful location overlooking the lake. The area is quiet and serene. We wanted a snowy adventure for our young son and were not disappointed. There was snow on the ground around the house and up Stover mountain a nice sledding hill.

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights over Christmas at Uncle Johnny's Fishing Cabin. We were pleasantly surprised by the adorable vintage decor because we are vintage collectors, so it made us feel right at home! The cabin was warm and cozy and very clean! The bathroom are beautifully remodeled and the beds are comfy! It was stocked up with everything we needed, from a crock pot to firewood.

The views of the lake were stunning as well! We intended on doing a lot of fishing while we were there and that's exactly what we did, our fishing poles only left the water when we needed to re-bait them! (We caught fish every day right there off of the snowy bank!)

We would definitely return to Uncle Johnny's Fishing Cabin and fully intend to! This was possibly the best vacation ever! We miss it already! Thank you John and Debbie for being so prompt and responsive to any questions we had. Hopefully we will be back soon!

Great place to chill by the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house seemed bigger than the square footage would suggest which was probably because our boys were constantly jumping off the dock and playing in the lake. It was very relaxing to sit on the back patio and enjoy the view while the kids play in the lake. The hosts were awesome - they even mailed a cable we left behind. They are very helpful with local suggestions on where to eat. I would highly recommend this place.
