About The Owner

We are a fun-loving family from Chico. We go up to Almanor every chance we get.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose California

Our family vacationed in Almanor every year and finally we had the opportunity to buy a place of our own. We look forward to sharing our new home with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

As soon as we saw this home we fell in love with the view. The lakefront view is breathtaking. When you are out on the large deck you do not see any neighbors. We are located on the point in the deeper waters. You look to the left and to the right and all you see is the gorgeous lake. The pictures do not do it justice. You will need to see it for yourself.

WOW! PERFECT! AWESOME! These were just a few of the initial comments from our family of three generations who take frequent vacations together. The "Lake Almanor Getaway” surpassed all of our expectations from the initial contact with the owners, Christina and Wyatt, to our very reluctant departure. We kayaked, fished, swam, read on the dock, played cards, relaxed in the hot tub, enjoyed awesome meals on the porch/deck. The views are spectacular, the gourmet kitchen was fully stocked, the barbecue fantastic and every meal was complete with smores around the fire pit. To support all of our adventures, the property is complete with kayak’s, a canoe, games, deck chairs for the dock, a nearby launch for our boat and our grandson’s (age 7 & 4) enjoyed the rare opportunity of late night movies in their “awesome” bunk room! We shopped at the local Paradise Market which has a fabulous butcher, deli and all our food/beverage needs. Topping off our hosts amazing support was a heads up that there was a Wine and Art Festival at Lasson National Park during our visit. This was a wonderful side trip to complete our magical time together. The entire family plans to return next year and without a doubt we will once again enjoy a wonderful “Getaway” thanks to the attention to detail of Christina and Wyatt.

Best vrbo rental. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

The house is even more beautiful that the pictures! in our 3 day stay we didn't want for anything. It was winter but even then there is enough to do in the house itself. Its spacious and well stocked. Owners were a joy to work with. It's truly a home as you can tell with the special touches the owners have put in.

They had even decorated the house for Christmas complete with a tree and mistletoe!! Once you've been there you can tell its a home not just a house put up for rent. Would love to return in summer. 5 stars all the way.

Perfect fit for our family!

  • 5 of 5

I looked at a lot of properties and read a lot of reviews before booking this rental. Everything that was mentioned in the reviews was absolutely true! The view is unobstructed and the dock with sun umbrella was our favorite afternoon hang-out. We love this part of the lake and even though it was quite low this year, the dock handled the lower level perfectly. The owners have been very pleasant to work with and you can tell they have lots of fun at their cabin because all the right toys and amenities are on site. We've already booked for next year.
