Whether you golf, hike, bike, boat, ski, fish, antique, or simply like to relax this home is perfect for your next long weekend get-a-way or full-on family vacation. A 2000 Sq ft, 4 bedroom, 2 bath house, sleeps 8 and gives you plenty of space to rejuvenate. The large open concept floor plan is replete with a full kitchen and all amenities, large flat screen with blu-ray over the fire place in the living room, a stained glass windowed dining room, grand enough to accommodate everyone; and of course, there's satellite internet.

A deck spanning the breadth of the house looks over the gentle path leading down to the shoreline and dock, where you can moor your boat as the season permits. This deck with its unblemished view of the lake and forested mountains beyond is an inspirational place for early morning coffee; and with its king sized stainless steel gas grill, it's also the ideal place at day's end to BBQ your favorite stake or fresh catch of the day!

About Phil Jones

Dad always told us of the fond memories created by his grandparents at "the family cabin on the lake". Summer days filled with mountain air, warm sunshine, refreshing water, and the love of family made a lasting impression on this boy who most of the year grew up in the rough and tumbled world of New York's inner city streets. In 2009 hoping to re-create that experience for our family, Dad (and Mom) built the "Lake House Dream Come True" in breathtakingly beautiful Lake Almanor, CA. And now we'd like to share that same opportunity with you, your family, and friends.

Phil Jones purchased this house in 2009

Amazing views and state of the art kitchen

  • 5 of 5

This is by far one of the best houses in Lake Almanor we have ever stayed in. The bedrooms are spacious and lovely. The kitchen was state of the art and had everything. We brought spices and pans and we didn't need to. The fireplace made everything nice and warm but not to hot. We play a lot of family games and we brought ours and then found some in a cabinet. The pictures do not do this place justice and we can't wait to come again. Angie Harris and family.

A wonderful place to stay up at Lake Almanor.

  • 5 of 5

The house is a pure delight as it is right on the lake providing for relaxing moments just sitting outside and looking at the lake. At night, the deck provides a good place to see the stars and marvel at God's handiwork and beauty. The kitchen is well stocked with all that is needed to make any type of meal. The beds are comfortable and the living room is a nice place to visit and watch TV. If you are looking for a great place to spend a week relaxing and enjoying God's creation this is the place.

Beautiful Home With Great Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at how beautiful the home is on the inside. Spotless and very well decorated.

The pictures don't do it justice. Amazing and huge kitchen which was very well stocked with supplies and equipment. The deck and view over the lake were spectacular, especially at sunset or as we bbq'ed. Owner's provided wonderful welcome basket as well as great information about the home and area. Everything worked as it was supposed to. Can't recommend this place highly enough, just don't go when I want to go back! :)

Amazing House on The East Shore

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here from July 8th -15th and had a wonderful relaxing vacation in this amazing house. We had six people and there was plenty of room (didn't even use one of the bedrooms). The house had everything we needed in the gourmet kitchen and open concept living area. The deck has beautiful views of the lake and sunsets.Bedrooms are nicely furnished and beds are comfy. House is much better than the pics on VRBO.

Dock and lake are closer than they appear in the pictures (lake was full when we were there) and it is located on a nice part of the lake without a lot of boat traffic. We rented a boat, had paddle boards and a kayak. Great house for water/lake activities.

Finally, Phil and Donna are great hosts and very responsive. There was a single serve Kuerig coffee maker at the house. We drink a lot of coffee , so we inquired if there was also a regular coffee maker somewhere in the house. There wasn't, but they had one delivered by Amazon a day later!

Hoping to come back next year!

Great 4th of July

  • 4 of 5

We have been renting lake front cabins around the lake for years. Phil and Donna have provided so much more than a lake front cabin, it is a true get-a-way. The home is so welcoming from the first step in the door. The views and dock are fantastic. We took advantage of the well stocked kitchen to host a Belgian Waffle bar breakfast for friends and family (the 3 Belgian Waffle makers made this very easy). Instead of joining all the boats on the lake for the fireworks show, we had a crystal clear view from the lounge chairs on the deck. The only reason I did not give five stars is that the back yard was a little over grown with sticker bushes that prevented us from putting up the volleyball/badminton set . There is a great path down to the lake to avoid the stickers, but would have loved to utilize the entire property. The dock is in great shape in very deep water providing hours of fun for the kids of all ages. Phil has been the most responsive home owner we have rented from. Even on the 4th of July, when we encountered a minor issue, Phil was on it and trying to resolve the problem.

Phil and Donna, thank you so much for opening up this lovely home to others. We will be booking next years trip soon.
