About Michelle McKenzie

Welcome to our Lake Almanor Home. We are Shawn & Michelle McKenzie. Shawn grew up in Chester and graduated from Chester High School. Michelle grew up in southern Oregon. We met and married in the early 90's. We currently live in South Placer County.

Michelle McKenzie purchased this house in 2010

Why Michelle McKenzie chose California

When our two boys were young, we enjoyed many family camping trips nearby at Rocky Point Campground. We purchased this home in 2010 and are very grateful for the time we have been able to spend here with family and friends. We hope you will enjoy the beautiful Lake Almanor area and our mountain home, as well. Cheers!

What makes this house unique

The most enjoyable feature of this home is the comfortable "mountain home" feel, vaulted ceilings with grand windows, and the location. The back yard is on the first fairway of the Lake Almanor West golf course, and you can still enjoy a peek of the lake from the front of the house. We love being able to walk to the recreation center, the boat launch, and the paved trails. Lake Almanor West Drive is also great for "people watching" as they walk, run, cycle and enjoy the outdoors.

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

This comfortable home on LAW Drive is the perfect location - across from the lake and just down the road from the boat launch and the rec center! Michelle is close by, via text, if needed and responds quickly. The great room and common living areas are perfect for visiting by the wonderful pot belly stove! The outdoor areas are inviting as well!

Our Cure for "Almanoritis"

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying in this lovely, comfortable, well-designed and stocked vacation home. Family has been coming to Lake Almanor for close to 50 years now and this one hits the mark with a view of the lake across the street and the golf course on the other side. The layout is comfortable for a family - with privacy for the parents! Well supplied and furnished. Looking forward to another summer vacation there next year.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to spread the word! This home and location are just perfect.

Clean and comfortable, it was the most fully stocked rental we have ever had.

It's an easy walk to the beach that has a swim platform, bocci ball, horse shoes, a volleyball net (or badminton) and an array of toys and balls etc. We had a super fun stick ball game and BBQ on our last night.

The house had games and tons of DVD's and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook in every night.

We got to do the family stuff we never have time to do at home (games, movies, cook together).

Highlight of the trip of all was renting the pontoon boat from Major's Outpost just down the street.

Highly recommend this rental for location as well as comfort and beauty of the home and the natural surroundings sooooo relaxing and fun for everyone.

Thank you for a GREAT vacation!!

Great location, and very comfortable, well-equipped house

  • 4 of 5

We spent a long weekend here in the summer, and found it an excellent location to enable us to explore Lassen National Park, Lake Alamanor and the surrounding areas. Michelle was very responsive and helpful in processing our reservation throughout. The house was comfortable and well-equipped, with comfy beds and high quality bedding (all cotton) and plenty of seating for larger groups. There is plenty of parking and space. It has lovely views over to the lake in front (just across the road) and the golf course behind (but not too close behind - the house has nice privacy). We rented a boat one day and drove all over the gorgeous lake, and did Lassen the rest of the time. As beautiful as Tahoe, without the crowds and traffic, and fascinating geology to boot! Nearby the town of Chester is delightful and low-key, with only one chain restaurant in the entire place (Subway) - otherwise it is all local, one-off businesses. What a joy!

All in all, a great situation. The only thing that wasn't perfect was that the master bedroom and living area were very warm at night (July) and there is no air con in the house. The fans worked fine and windows have insect screens on them so we utilized both of those. This is probably typical of most homes in this area, though, just a weather factor to be aware of in planning the timing of your visit if you find it hard to sleep in hot weather.
