This was our family vacation home and when my parents passed away we were already in the vacation rental business and wanted to share this special place with family friends and guests.
I have always thought of Westwood as a fishing dream destination as I have spent so many hours chasing the trout here.
Carol or Boya Faust purchased this house in 1952
A Town is Born
Here in the heart of the wilderness
Where wildlife roamed at will
Amid primeval forest
Where even time stood still,
Where rushing rivers downward dashed
Through meadows green with waving grass
Snowy peaks towered to the skies
Amid smiling lakes that watched closeby.
Where the trees talked to the stars at night
And the moon looked down and smiled.
Where the breeze whispered secrets
And the lakes extend for miles.
Into this place of towering pines
Where natures voise excelled all chimes
Came man with ax and saw and blade
And out of this land so fair and free
a town was born for you and me.
In the heart of the Sierras
You will find it nestled there
The little town of Westwood
with traditions quaint and rare.
As years go by and times holds sway
its houses may fall into decay,
It's people may leave for parts unknown
The years and streets may be overgrown
Even the breeze may seem to sigh
with memories of the days gone by.
But in our hearts and in our minds
there will always be a Westwood
There among the pines.
By Ethel Hurd (recorded in 1949)
The Country Cottage is a very comfortable home that welcomes you to really relax, explore our town and the surrounding areas
I have placed a booklet in the home letting you in on some of our in town events, places to eat, and little known areas like the Subway Lave Caves to have to see to believe.
Everything is provided here. Just bring your toothbrush and clothes and food you want to eat unless you want to eat at our local restaurants. ( The Old Mill ( breakfast and lunch) Buffalo Chips ( PIzza +++) The Moonlight Cafe ( new dinner house)
snack shacks and taco stands too.
We also have Youngs Super Market that has been here since the early 50's and is a fixture in our town.
Bring waht food you care to and if you need a couple of tiems the country store is well stocked.
The town museum is professionally arranged and the tall Paul Bunyon and sculpture on the main drag lets you know that this was once the largerst lumber town west of the Rockies.
HIking trails, fishing streams and lakes give you rainbow trout fo ryour dinner or bass from the lakes.
Did anyone say that Westwood has the best pizza you have ever eaten at Buffalo Chips
Well, this place won't be everybody's favorite place. It's old. A little worn. It's in a tiny out of the way town and the railroad still runs through alive and well. The grocery store is sparse and closes by 6.
All that being said, I loved it. All of it. Buaetifuly furnished, an amazing wood stove and cable TV and wifi. Since I had been brought up in places like it myself I felt right athome. Visiting my grandparents again. Thanks Bob and Carol for letting us stay there for so long!
This is a comfortable, clean, well equipped place for a few friends to stay for several days. My group fixed meals, toured historic Westwood, ate out at the two recommended nearby restaurants, and explored Westwood's surrounding areas. We all had a good time.
Mike and I really enjoyed this Westwood cottage. It was clean , comfortable, and was located close to Lake Almanor and less than an hour away from Mount Shasta. The home was quaint yet roomy with 3 bedrooms. I highly recommend a stay here for a fun vacation at a reasonable price!
Located between Chester and Susanville this historic old lumber town has numerous places to explore both in town and surrounding area. The local museum, the loacl honey mead operation, the Bizz Johnson trail head, the layout of the streets each named after a tree type. fishing areas are all around you. HIking, and exploring the beautiful lakes, streams etc.

A very interesting experience to walk through in total darkness.
