About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin with back porch overlooking Lassen National Forest

Step back into time when life was slower at this quaint cabin located in the shadow of Mount Lassen. Enjoy the short 1/4 mile walk to view Lake Almanor, one of Northern California's true gems. On your return from the lake stop by Carol's Cafe for a slice of true Americana fare. Pick up one of Carol's famous pies to enjoy while relaxing on the front porch as you rock your cares away. In the evening sip a cold beverage on the large back porch while enjoying Lassen National Forest and the wildlife that abounds there.

Why Claire chose California

This property is near and dear to our hearts. Lake Almanor has been a mainstay in my family for 40+ years. When my husband and I had the chance to purchase a lot in the historic development of Prattville we were ecstatic. In 2001 we purchased the lot and a year later my husband built us our "little cabin in the woods". We have made many memories with family and friends over the years here and are looking to make many more in years to come. Our wish is for others to have the same opportunity by staying here. Enjoy!

What makes this cabin unique

Large off street parking. Our cabin backs up to forest thus offering a great view of nature and provides some privacy.

Nicely Appointed Cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! All the details were taken care of -- everything was right there where it belonged. Clean, neat and all the "cabiny" details one would expect. We enjoyed the large covered front porch and back deck for evening wine and morning coffee. The location is great for lake activities and less than an hour from Lassen Volcanic National Park.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love when we first opened the door! Such any inviting place, very clean and in excellent condition.

We came to relax, and the peace and quiet were just what we were looking for...sitting out on the back porch you can hear the breeze in the top of the pines.

Charming and well appointed family cabin

  • 4 of 5

What a fantastic getaway home! We were all so happy with this fully stocked and well cared for lake house. A package of DIY scones with jam awaited us on the counter (nice touch), the places was sparklingly clean, there were plenty of towels and blankets (great for the chilly mornings to cuddle up with on the couch), a very well supplied kitchen, a grill, chairs outside for porch hanging, fans in each room for the hot nights, and a charming decor. Our friends's 3year old adored the mornings sitting on the giant rocking chairs while watching the chipmunks scurry around the wood pile in front of the house. We've stayed at several rental places, and this one was definitely one of the best.

One small complaint would be that the beds could be a little more comfortable. Other than that, our stay was perfect.

We hope to come stay again in the future!

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality.
