Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths

Lake Almanor is located 165 miles north of Sacramento, nestled amongst the pines where the Cascade Mountains meet the Sierra Nevadas. At elevation 4500 feet it is the third largest manmade lake in California and best known for its prime hunting and fishing grounds.

There are two golf courses on the lake, Bailey Creek in the peninsula & a nine hole at Lake Almanor West. OK, we're fishermen, not golfers! Mount Lassen National Park is just 26 miles away, has hiking (to the top!), picnicking, and very scenic views. Play tennis in the peninsula or bike around the lake (many other trails for cycling to choose from).

This cozy home is situated on the east shore of Hwy 147. Just about the middle of the 8 mile strip at 3907 Hwy 147, Lake Almanor, CA 96137. Enjoy sunsets on the deck or fish right off the dock. Bring your boat, there's plenty of excellent fishing holes around. During the summer months we rent Friday to Friday. It truly is a nice spot on the lake.

Shopping and antiquing can be found in all the quaint old fashioned towns around the area. Dine out in Chester, the peninsula, try Westwood's famous 'Buffalo Chips Pizzeria' ('Cabin Fever' is our favorite).

Rent 6 nights during October through mid-May & the 7th night is free! For a truly affordable vacation on the lake this is the place.

Perfect home for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for! The snow came just in time and we were able to go sledding and also enjoy some excellent fishing. The location on the lake is so perfect. We are already talking about coming back in the summer.

great cozy place for and small family

  • 5 of 5

Great cozy place for and small family. can't really beat it. it is right on the lake and made for a great place to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. The family will have a great time. A nice little drive way and the open kitchen and deck made the stay well worth it. The ability to play in the back yard next to the lake was great. the close proximity made a quick trip to Lassen national Park easy!

Outstanding property!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations! It is beautiful - inside and out! The home is beautifully decorated. Even the upgrades aren't overdone and tie in nicely to all the charm of the home. Open floor plan, the two bedrooms each with their own bathroom, great room, kitchen and dining room all exhibit warmth and charm. The original built-ins add even more charm as does the special bedroom closet! The kitchen is stocked with more than you will need. The owners thought of everything for the kitchen! The king bed is extremely comfortable. Sunsets on the lake can't be beat. The home was even seasonally decorated! Pride of ownership shows in this home and you can tell the owner takes great care of it. It was extremely clean and not full of a lot of "don't do this and don't do that." You could tell the owner wants you to enjoy every minute of your stay. Don't pass up a chance to stay at Uncle Johnnie's cabin when visiting Lake Almanor. You won't be sorry. The owner was very easy to work with; she answered my many emails in more than a timely manner. Can't wait to return!!!

Excellent location, house and view.

  • 5 of 5

The place is delightful. Nicely appointed, well equipped and wonderful view. We really enjoyed our stay and will book it again. Couple of suggestions, not complaints: Need an outdoor light by the grill. Could use a steel or some kind of knife sharpener. Need a long handled grill cleaner. One provided with short handle gets too hot to do an effective job. Cleaning crew needs to check grill for cleanliness. It wasn't cleaned by last user. I cleaned before using and after using.

As I said, we really enjoyed the place and would happily book it again.

Very clean and well maintained. Owners very responsive and friendly.

  • 5 of 5

This house is great. Highly recommend it. House is very well maintained and clean. Owners put a lot of thought into making the home convenient and comfortable. We caught a ton of fish off the dock and it was by far the hot spot on the lake compared to other areas we went. Thank you!!!

About Deborah Molea

We purchased the home in 1999 as strictly a business investment. Little did we realize how in love with the entire area we'd be. John loves to fish & sure gets his limit! We live in the bay area but travel north to the home monthly. It's our favorite place to go!

Deborah Molea purchased this house in 1999

Why Deborah Molea chose East Shore

The history of the Lake Almanor Basin is fascinating (we keep a book on the shelf to share with our guests). We found out the home was built in 1953 by Finnis Mack Saunders, nicknamed 'Chief', a foreman for the Red River Lumber Company. The knotty pine walls & ceiling in the kitchen are priceless! We've respectfully done some remodelling while keeping the old world charm of the home.

What makes this house unique

Uncle Johnnie's Fishing Cabin is situated on the middle of the east shore & is truly a nice spot on the lake. We enjoy sharing the home as much as our guests enjoy vacationing there!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family & I had a great time & loved the clean, comfortable feel of your home. You & your husband take excellent care of the home & property & I hope to rent from you again.
