California House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Chester Creekside Cabin is a beautiful, historic country home set amid large, rolling lawns. Built in the 1900s, this graceful home has been fully restored. Newer additions have retained the home’s original charm while enhancing it with spacious living quarters and modern amenities.

With a creek running through the property, a picnic table under a majestic pine tree, and lawns on two sides, Chester Creekside Cabin is an ideal place for the entire family to gather. It is located in Old Towne Chester in a quiet, historic, residential neighborhood that is perfect for strolling.

Chester Creekside Cabin is walking distance to shops, restaurants, and coffee, and a 10-minute drive to Lake Almanor. Swimming, golfing, biking, hiking, ATV riding, and boating are available nearby.

The 2,000 square-foot home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The spacious living room has a sofa bed that sleeps two, as well as a wood stove, a table for playing board and card games, and a large sectional couch. *__*

The home is professionally designed, with an open floor plan that provides a comfortable flow between the living room, dining room, and fully-equipped kitchen. The dining room table seats 10.

The roomy master suite has a new queen bed and a large bathroom with a shower. Also located downstairs is a second bathroom, with a shower as well as an oversized bathtub. Upstairs there are three charming bedrooms. One bedroom has two twin beds, the second has one twin bed, and the third has a full bed.

A large covered porch provides another beautiful space for friends and family to gather. Overlooking the tranquil lawn and bubbling creek, the porch is an ideal setting for enjoying a book, a glass of wine, a sunset, or a conversation.

This beautifully appointed home includes an outdoor barbecue, linens, laundry facilities, DVDs, books, board games, children’s items, picnic supplies, plenty of wood for the wood stove, and lots of other resources to make your stay at Chester Creekside Cabin hassle-free and fun!

Very nice with a small Creek running through it. Very relaxing to sit out side and just listen to it

  • 4 of 5

The home is very comfortable and relaxing. We had 8 guys staying and it was fine. Nice kitchen and BBQ outside.

Just wish it had a TV although we were out most of the time.

Would like to stay there again which we plan on doing.

WONDERFUL HOME. CHARMING AND COMFORTABLE. Owners are responsive, kind people.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with our grandchildren ages 13 to 22. Despite age differences, there were amenities that entertained them all from the house itself to nature walks. We plan to rent again. Loved the place.

Relaxing, Affordable Cabin in Quiet Mountain Town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in February, the cabin was very nice but not too fancy that we had to stress about our kids playing and having fun. There was a ton of snow in the yard for them to make snow men, build a sled hill and have snowball fights. I would say there would be snow here for weeks after a big storm. We shopped at the holiday grocery store, which has everything it's pretty much a Safeway. They have a club card for a discount (there are a bunch of these at the cabin on the shelf in the kitchen). The place was very clean and comfortable. The wood stove was awesome and kept the place toasty. There was no TV in the living room!!! Also awesome. 8 and 10 year old wonder "how people live like this?" Encourages more family time and playing. There was games and toys around to keep kids occupied.

We went to a sledding hill nearby off chester ski road off 36 near the super ditch. It was perfect for all skill levels of sledding.

Our family had an amazing time and would love to come back and check it out during the summer.

Lovely time at this charming home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful weekend at the home of Miriam and Ted in Chester. The house is very well kept up, was pristine, and had everything we needed for our weekend away (except for the dozen eggs we left in San Francisco!). There was plenty of wood for the wood-burning stove, and our evenings were cozy, calm, and quiet. Exactly what we were seeking. This was a perfect place to launch excursions into Lassen National Park. We spent our days snowshoeing in various locations in Lassen NP. We have no complaints; it was very difficult to leave. Thanks!

wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this house. We were 1/2 hour from Lassen National Park and so could go there each day. The house was very comfortable for two couples, affording good privacy. We were happy to find a terrific supermarket across the street and so we cooked our meals in the well equipped kitchen. The water tastes so good and the shower pressure is better than what we have at home. I highly recommend renting this house.
