About Mitzi Richards or Elaine Newton

Our family has enjoyed living in this home for the past 16 years and loved every day of it.

We were so blessed to be given the opportunity to raise our children in this exceptional environment. The 4 seasons are absolutely beautiful to see and experience. Summers are warm and comfortable, fall is stunning with all the different colors of the changing leaves,, winter is beautiful with snow fall, and spring is breathtaking with the melting snow.

We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we have and treat our home with care and respect so our family and the next family can enjoy it too.

Why Mitzi Richards or Elaine Newton chose Lakeshore

This home sits lake front to Huntington Lake and sits at 7000 feet. Well away from city life. If your looking to get away from it all, this home is for you. You do have one neighbor next to you (managers cabin) but not side by side like a condo. Rancheria Mini Mart sits to the west of the house. Nice common area with BBQ, table and chairs. (available in the summer months only)

The yard is the Sierra National Forest where you and the kids can enjoy the great outdoors. You do have the opportunity to see wild life, like deer, bear, chipmunks, & grouse to name a few. Bugs are common to see as well. Remember we sit at 7000 feet.

Manager is on site for your convenience.

What makes this cabin unique

Its very cool, when Fresno is 100 degrees we are at a cool comfortable 75-80 degrees. There is a common area where you can enjoy a bonfire out side in the dead of summer roast marshmallows and enjoy it.

The winter months has the potential to blanket you with lots of snow for your enjoyment. You can snowmobile, snow-ski, snowboard, snowshoe, cross country skiing, simple snow play, or stay in and enjoy some hot chocolate while it snows.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time even though China Peak was barely open. Easy access to the house. We enjoyed walks around the lake and playing horse shoes. Excellent place to stay!

Rustic home with lots of personality and a great location

  • 4 of 5

This home very quirky. First, it was very clean and an excellent location right across the street from the lake. There's a grocery store next door as well (but not intrusive at all) which was very convenient. The 2 bedrooms downstairs were great. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms as well, but the bathroom is separating them so to get to one bedroom you have to go through the bathroom, also, the 2 single beds are in an open area so perfect for kids, not as great for adults, although we made due and had a great time! outside there's horseshoe pits and a toss game and BBQ and lounging area looking at the lake. We would recommend this rental.

Convenient location, well provisioned.

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with the kitchen, which was well-supplied. Dining table space was tight, but adequate and the outdoor picnic table was welcome. There were toys for our little one as well. Upstairs was quite warm but we managed. They did supply fans. We were close enough to a beach to walk. We were happy to have paper products supplied, even napkins.

Huntington Lake is a very quiet serene place. If your looking for a laid back quiet atmosphere, you found it.

Its, nature at its finest. Remember we are at 7000 feet and you will see bugs, and critters of all kinds, from small mice to large bears and everything in between.

Day activities include hiking, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, horse back riding, bird watching, or laying on the beach (by the lake) in winter your 2 miles from China Peak mountain resort, where you can snow ski, snow board, or innertube.

Night life is very low key and quiet. There are only 2 bars in town, China Peak Inn and Lake-shore resort. Dining in the summer time you have 1. Lake-shore Resort, 2. China Peak 3. Huntington Lake resort or you can drive 30 min. into Shaver Lake.

Winter time we have the potential to receive lots and lots of snow. Day activities in the winter consist of snow play, snowmobiling, snow skiing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing or sitting in the cabin and watch it snow.
