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). For a truly affordable vacation on the lake this is the place.

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!

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

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!!!

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.

Cabin on lake, ideal for small family

  • 5 of 5

My sister and her husband joined my husband and me on a much needed retreat this past week. It was a wonderful fun filled vacation with lots of fishing from deck and the numerous waters in the gorgeous regional location. Well stock, clean, comfortable arrangements.. The sunsets were just beautiful, the lake was calm except for 2 days when the wind was blowing. Spending time with family, the turning of the autumn colors and fishing were the highlights of our trip. A nice relaxing retreat. Thank you!

The house was nice and clean.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed being on the water,but the lot next door was very small, and when they backed their house trailer into it, we felt kind of cramped. They were nice, but kind of took away our privacy. Other than that, everything was great. Caught fish at the bridge and spent some time at Butt lake. Beautiful sunsets.
