Overview

Shasta Cascade Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House on Butte Creek, 2500 Sq Ft, 4 Bedrooms (Sleeps 8-10)

Chico Creekfront Perfect Getaway in beautiful Butte Creek Canyon. 2500 sq ft home GREAT for family reunions, getaways or as a romantic retreat or stay. Swim with the salmon all summer in the deep hole off the back deck where 40-100 salmon stay from April to October when they spawn. Watch them jump as you enjoy dinner on the deck or use the mask & snorkle to see them up close as they flutter by you. Take the sturdy stairs that lead down to some great diving rocks. There are kayaks to rent if you wish to adventure down to the historical cover bridge. It is an easy go of it but exciting and beautiful all the same. Enjoy bird watching or get lucky to see deer, quail, turkey vultures, otters or a variety of waterfowl. Listen to the creek as you soak in the tub or enjoy the hot tub on the back deck. This is truly a perfect getaway just minutes from Chico. If you love to bike, it is a perfect 7 mile ride downhill to the 6 hole golf course or bike up for a great scenic workout. This is also a historical sight and you can learn about the diamondville area in the gold rush days at the museum just 2 miles further up. Else, inquire about a special guest pass to get access to the mining cave on site.

About Nancy Jensen

I work full time at the local community college but this getaway I bought is my true dream and renting it helps for me to afford it while continuing to work on making it even better year after year. It feeds my soul and my love of nature just minutes out of town. I go here to unwind, play with my friends and family. We ride dirt bikes on the local trails and swim with the fish. My dream is to share it with others, improve it each year and have others appreciate it as much as I do and hopefully return year after year or tell their friends.

Nancy Jensen purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Rest and Relaxation

This place was great. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and calming sounds nature. We spent hours swimming in the crystal clear waters sharing company with hundreds of wild salmon. Simply a beautiful setting and a comfortable home. We will be back soon.

Summer Visit

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Butte Creek Getaway. The setting is really beautiful and the house had everything we needed. It was a little farther out from Chico than we realized, but it was fun to explore new territories. The only negative we had was that the three dogs next door barked and stayed at the fence everytime we came outside., because we had brought our dogs. I would definatey stay at this house again if we left our dogs at home!

THE PREFECT GETEWAY IN CHICO CALIFOTNIA

  • 5 of 5

THE PROPERTY WAS DESCRIBED AS THE "PERFECT GETAWAY" AND IT WAS THAT AND MORE. THE BUTTE CREEK COULD BE SEEN AND HEARD DAILY AND ITS BEAUTY WAS STUNNING. THE SALMON THAT YOU SEE FROM THE DECK WERE OVER 2 FEET LONG. THE HOME HAD ALL THE STUFF WE NEEDED (AND MORE) SO GOING TO THE STORE TO GET 1 ITEM WAS NOT NEEDED. THE HOME AND DECK WERE LARGE SO A LARGE GROUP WOULD FIND IT ACCOMDATING. IT WAS CLEAN AND HAD EVERTHING YOU WOULD NEED FOR YOUR STAY.

IF YOUR A HIKER,GOLFER,SITE SEEKER,BOOK READER OR JUST WANT TO SIT AROUND THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. THE DOWNTOWN OF CHICO HAD LOTS OF RESTAURANTS TO CHOOSE FROM AND HAD GOOD REVIEWS.

THUMBS ARE HIGH UP ON THE "PERFECT GETEWAY"!

Wonderful space with all you need and more

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much, the property and location are so perfect. It rained the whole time we were there and it was so beautiful and green with amazing little waterfalls on your way up to the house. Would rent again for sure.

relaxing family get away

  • 5 of 5

The house was really nice and well-maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed in terms of pans etc. The only bad thing was we stayed during a huge storm so we didn't get to enjoy the outdoor area as much as we wanted to. But we would love to come back and try again! This was perfect for our family to spend time together.

Great setting for large family holiday

  • 4 of 5

The title of this home, Butte Creek Perfect Getaway, was accurate. Our two families, meeting up for our annual holiday gathering, found the home large enough to accommodate all of us but cozy and comfortable with the spacious main room and its fireplace--in fact, it was even bigger than I expected. Our host Nancy made us feel very welcome with the holiday decor as well as amenities like coffee, cream, wine, and plenty of back-up snacks. Although it was the middle of winter and we couldn't spend much time on the deck (except in the hot tub, yay!), the surroundings were beautiful and dramatic, with the creek rushing below and the butte formations rising above. The kitchen was set up so that several people could work on a meal at once and still engage in conversation with those in the main room. We were lucky to have clear, sunny weather, which allowed for some scenic walks in the area, all very easy to get to, plus Chico was easy to reach for our grocery shopping. We would definitely recommend this house, especially for groups of 7-9 people who like to hang out together.
