Overview

About the property

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. Largest wild run of Chinook Salmon in California and therefore protected from fishing. Fishing is allowed mid November and anglers have pulled dozens of steelhead when fly fishing at my place. (Catch and release at that time but very fun!) Watch the salmon 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. There is even a mining cave on site. You may book directly and save VRBO service fee as well by calling 530-354-5353.

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

Butte Creek Fun

  • 4 of 5

This was a Perfect Getaway as advertised for my 2 sisters and I -- plenty of space and everything provided. I have never stayed in a rental where there were so many grocery items left behind -- which was very convenient. We were all very comfortable -- lots of beds!

We could climb down the stairs and ladder on the steep bank to the creek, but not sure how to get back out & weather turned cooler anyway so we never actually got wet, but it was gorgeous! (Younger folks would have no problem!) The sky, the birds, the sound of the creek and the fresh air were lovely! We might come back again to this very spot! Thank you!

Great getaway in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating our son's graduation from Chico State and it was the perfect location to be out of the crowds of Chico and yet still be within a half hour of all the events. The home is very well stocked and has every amenity you would want. Our entire family attended (aunts, uncles, cousins) and it easily accomodated all of us.

We spent the majority of our time on the large deck admiring the view and listening to the rush of Butte Creek. Very relaxing!!!!

Wonderful place to stay - with a very helpful and warmly host!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! The house was very spacious and comfortable, and it´s very good located for discovering the region. Most we enjoyed the time in the jacuzzi and sit on the great terrace with a glass of wine. My son was excited of the pool billard and the piano ;-). We missed nothing. Nancy was very nice and helpful - we enjoyed the time we spend together! I just can recommend to choose this wonderful destination for a stay nearby Chico!

We could not have chosen a better place to "get away!"

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The house was absolutely beautiful, the view was gorgeous and the owner was more than helpful and accommodating! We played pool, soaked in the hot tub, sat in front of the fire heater with wine, and had a great nights sleep in the huge master bedroom. The house was fully furnished, including dishes, towels, blankets, games etc. We didn't have to worry about a thing! We have already booked another stay at this Perfect Getaway! We definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cozy, relaxing and fun vacation spot!

Wonderful country home just minutes from town!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful home! Spacious and meticulously maintained! We felt right at home! Lots of room, nicely furnished and had everything we could possible need! Nancy was great to work with and the whole process was so easy! The house was spotless and did not have any funky smells when we walked in. Loved playing billiards on the pool table, then soaking in the outdoors hot tub after a few cocktails on the deck that overlooked a peaceful creek. The location was so peaceful, but only a few minutes from Chico if we needed anything. Will definitely make plans to stay here again! Thanks for a great weekend!
