Located on a quiet cul-de-sac at Lake Almanor West, this home has level access to lake. This unique location offers great swimming, beach with private boat dock and a buoy for your boat. Lake Almanor is great for water skiing and wake boarding. Jet skis are permitted and rented nearby. Afternoon breezes make for good sailing as well.

Excellent fly, spinning, and troll fishing in the lake and surrounding rivers and streams for trophy-sized rainbow trout and brown trout, as well as land-locked Chinook salmon, smallmouth bass, and largemouth bass.

A boat launch ramp is just down the road. There are two more golf courses in the area including 18 hole Bailey Creek course.

Mount Lassen Volcanic National Park is not far for a hiking adventure.

Winter is a lovely time of year with snowfall around the house. Nearby you can rent snowmobiles and cross country skis. There are also many places to enjoy sledding. Or just settle in by the wood stove with a great book or game and watch the snowfall.

About Deanna Lares

I enjoy all sorts of activities...especially spending time at Lake Almanor with my family and friends. I find it relaxing and peaceful there. Born and raised in the Bay Area, I spent 25 years in Chico, CA. In 2014, I moved back to San Francisco.

Deanna Lares purchased this house in 1995

Why Deanna Lares chose California

I wanted a place that my family could return to year after year to share time together.

What makes this house unique

I love being right on the lake! The view is incredible and I enjoy watching and listening to the wildlife. It is easy to access the lake...just walk down to the dock!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are now home after spending a wonderful week in your Almanor house.  We had a great time and really enjoyed your house. It is located in the best spot on the lake. We all want to come again next year.

Lake View ?

  • 1 of 5

We have been to Lake Almanor a few times and stayed on the east shore. We decided to try the west shore and the country club area. The property is older and we expected it to have some wear and tear which it did. Probably a 3 star rating based on age and condition IN SIDE. While the property can sleep six easily the hot water is very limited and on the north end of the house you never really get any hot water in the shower.

Unfortunately, the bats on the property were out of control and that really ruined our vacation. We arrived to find the back deck near the outside walls and the outside walls facing the lake covered in bat feces. I mean covered. The picture windows out the back are heavily streaked in bat droppings and urine etc. We did not use the deck. About 8:30 pm hundreds of bats emerge and descend on the property. We also have bats where we live but not like this. In the morning the front entry of the porch would be covered in bat feces. Each morning I would go out and hose it off so we wouldn't be tracking all that crap into the house. It became work just trying to avoid all the carp.

If you are looking for a vacation home that's clean and you can enjoy the deck etc this is not the rental for you.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! The location is spot on - right on the lake, not far into town, but also still felt private. The house is very spacious and accommodating. We cooked a Thanksgiving meal for 10 with no problem. Best of all - the owner was very available and responsive. I would highly recommend this house to any one I know.

Wedding / Family reunion

  • 4 of 5

My entire family enjoyed our stay. The house accommodated 10 adults comfortably. The kitchen and deck was great as previously mentioned in other reviews. The owner was very gracious and helpful. The only negative was the lack of AC, a few days were very hot and quite uncomfortable without AC. I'm not sure if we hit a overly warm week, but AC would have made are experience a 5 star. Would recommend to all.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for leaving a great review. Unfortunately, is was a very hot week at the lake. It can be quite warm in summer, but usually cools down at night. Still most of the time it is quite comfortable and perfect for outdoor and water sports. Thanks again for choosing my home for your daughters wedding and family reunion! - Deanna L.

Beautiful Lake Location

  • 4 of 5

The house is located on a beautiful spot towards the end of the lake and we all spent countless hours on the deck large enough for 10/11 people to enjoy eating meals and hanging and enjoying the view. We didn't get the constant buzz from the boats and jet skis that's common on smaller lakes and really appreciated how quiet and private it seemed. We had our own ski boat and for the whole week felt that the lake was like our very own in August! The home was comfortable and clean but it is dated. It was a little cramped for 10 or 11 adults sleeping but Deanna, the owner, did warn us and we really do appreciate her accommodating us. I think if we had smaller children the sleeping arrangements would have worked a little better. Deanna was very responsive, informative and I personally liked her very much. Nearby Lassen National Park is a must see - amazing hikes!

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This home has been our summer vacation spot of choice for several family trips. Our family of eight adults fits very comfortably here. The two master bedrooms are a nice feature, but the real focus for us is the kitchen. We cook all meals there, and it's well-outfitted for practically anything you want to prepare. The deck is a wonderful place for meals with a nice view of the lake. The new dock is also a nice upgrade from previous years. The owner is helpful and welcoming.
