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 Prattville

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner


I just wanted to say that my family and I really enjoyed our stay in your lovely cabin. Very cozy and your style is spot on. We felt very relaxed and at home. Thank you for sharing with us.

Thanks again,

Excellent family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location for both lake and Lassen Volcanic National Park activities. The home was very cozy with everything that a person could ask for. My family was very relaxed after a long day of hiking at Lassen. The cabin is a short few minutes drive from any needs in town that you may require, or a short walk to the cafe, I recommend a slice of pie. The cabin was large enough for most needs yet cozy enough to feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this lovely home to any traveler who wants a clean, cozy and comfortable home.

Great Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed here on our annual sisters trip. Upon arrival, we found Claire had left us wine glasses and permanent markers to decorate them with. That was a nice touch! Everything was provided--all we needed to do was bring food. The cabin is clean and cozy and were I to visit the area again I would definitely stay in her cabin. Thanks so much, Patty C.

Wonderful "Little Cabin."

  • 5 of 5

Already missing the peaceful mornings on the back porch listening to the quiet and watching scurrying chipmunks and cautious deer. We rented this cabin to be near family camping with their trailer and boat at Rocky Point. When they saw "our" cabin, they talked about leaving their trailer at home and staying here next time. The glowing reviews are spot-on. Internet and mobile phones worked fine, by the way. Lunch at Carol's, and dinner at twilight on the deck at Plumas Pines Resort are a must. Wish our stay was longer so we could spend more time enjoying the cabin. If I could design my perfect cabin in the woods, this would be it.

Perfect family vacation. Little cabin in the woods is super clean and in a great location for boating, hiking, and biking. Cabin is stocked with all the little extras. You can tell that Claire and family care about their renters. Thank you for letting us stay! Definitely be back again! Prattville neighbors are the best!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. With the bike trail just up the hill from our back door it makes for easy riding. Love how the trail meanders along the lake and forest. Also thank you for the compliment as we do care about our renters and try to provide them with the most comfortable, relaxing atmosphere possible. We agree Prattville people are great!

The pictures don't lie! You get what you see and more 😉Comfy, cozy, clean, convenient

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to the area since 1980. Our family cabin was already being used and so we were needing to rent this trip. The cabin is absolutely lovely. The beds were all very comfortable and had nice quality linens as well. This will forever be our first choice when it comes to renting in Pratville again. The owners really do make you feel like a prized guest. We particularly enjoyed the patriotic decor touches on the property.

Relaxing cabin in the woods!

  • 4 of 5

We had lots of boat issues and stayed in the cabin more of our days than we planned! This cabin is very relaxing and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting in the back and watching deer walk 20 ft from us! The shade from the trees was welcoming during the hottest times of the day! The neighbors we met were friendly and helpful with the boat issues we had. The internet was definitely spotty which was not helpful while needing to search troubleshooting for the boats but it was nice that the younger people in our group were not able to ignore us the whole trip as they talked online to their friends! The kitchen was well stocked for what we brought to cook. The location is perfect for using the free launch or just taking a nice walk to the beach to watch the sunset. Definitely recommend the cabin!

Owner's Response: Amy, So happy you enjoyed the cabin but sorry to hear you had boat problems. The bright side is now you will need to come back up to spend more time on Lake Almanor.
