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 Lake Almanor West

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.

Perfection in Almanor

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest time staying at this Lake Almanor West property in February. As parents of two little kids, we couldn't ask for a better location to spend some quality family time.

With a snow covered golf course directly behind the house, the kids could run out back for some sledding and snow fun and then return to the house to warm up in the hot tub.

The kitchen was fully equipped and we were able to cook all of our meals with ease.

The washer and dryer were also nice to have to keep the snow clothes dry for the next day.

Two issues / recommendations:

The neighbors to the right live there full time and they have two larger dogs. The dogs aren't fenced and they bark any time you're outside. The owners were conscientious after my wife and children screamed because they became scared of being attacked.

We weren't able to have any fires because we didn't know to bring fire starting logs. There was a large amount of firewood at the house though. The central heat worked well and we didn't need a fire though.

Nice Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice place to stay, especially considering the price was a lot less than other options. Great West Shore location, we got some snow while we were there, so it was great to come back and start a nice fire in the fireplace and hit the hot tub. The house itself had everything we needed for a good time. Thanks!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. The house was immaculate and open. The views from the front and the back were beautiful (no neighbors behind the house). Lots of utensils for cooking too.We would stay here w/o hesitation again. Owners were easy to deal with.
