About the property

Relax in this very comfortable Lake Almanor West home. Nestled amongst huge pine and cedar trees, enjoy views of the lake from the front of the house and a protected view of the golf course from the back deck. It is conveniently located within walking distance from the public recreation center with beach access, park, and playground area. Approximately one mile away you will find the private boat launch and paved walking and bike trails. The home is 7 miles from the town of Chester where quaint shops, restaurants, and a generously stocked local grocery store can be found.

This home features a nearly new large Jacuzzi hot tub on the rear deck. With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, you can comfortably sleep 8 in beds. It is perfect for 3 couples, or 1-2 families with children.

The master bedroom and large bathroom are located on one side of the house with views of the lake and golf course. A king bed and 42” HD TV are in the master.

Bedroom #2 has a Queen bed and sliding glass door access to the back deck with views of the golf course. Bedroom #3 has a Queen bed, Twin bunk beds, and views of the lake. A second bathroom is located near bedrooms #2 and #3.

The living room is large and includes grand windows, and seating for many. Imagine cozy nights in front of the wood stove, while you enjoy a good book, friendly board game, and/or satellite TV and movies on the 46” HD TV. The dining room includes table-seating for 8, and is next to a well-appointed kitchen for those who enjoy cooking.

Enjoy summer and winter activities in this year-round vacation gem.

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.

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.

The place is perfect for a family gathering. Close to all the activities but super quiet and peaceful.

This cabin was beautiful. The wood stove gave a nice ambience. We loved the hot tub too!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful. It was roomy and the wood stove kept us warm and cozy. The living room has floor to ceiling windows, giving you a view of the lake. All the bedrooms are very nice and the master is very roomy with a master bathroom. We ended our nights relaxing in the hot tub, which was amazing. The only thing that was missing was toilet paper. We had to make a drive into Chester to get some. Besides that, it was a great stay and hope to return.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review! My apologies about the toilet paper. I am sorry for your inconvenience. Housekeeping must have neglected to re-stock that item. We will make sure to note that for future guests. Thank you!
