extended review of Country Cottage continued
Bring waht food you care to and if you need a couple of tiems the country store is well stocked. The town museum is professionally arranged and the tall Paul Bunyon and sculpture on the main drag lets you know that this was once the largerst lumber town west of the Rockies. HIking trails, fishing streams and lakes give you rainbow trout fo ryour dinner or bass from the lakes. Did anyone say that Westwood has the best pizza you have ever eaten at Buffalo Chips

Country Cottage in Historic Town of Westwood
With plenty of firewood for crisp spring and autum nites, this cottage has so many caring touches given down through the years by the Faust family. A practice piano with a sample pheasant strutting on top. Some very well chosen art to grace this 3 bdrm 1 1/2 bath. The kitchen is fully supplied with silver, pots and apns and large refrigerator. The mountain water is so good to drink and the air so sweet you will sleep well and wake up with a good appetite for bacon and eggs, oatmeal or poptarts

Mike and I really enjoyed this Westwood cottage. It was clean , comfortable, and was located close to Lake Almanor and less than an hour away from Mount Shasta. The home was quaint yet roomy with 3 bedrooms. I highly recommend a stay here for a fun vacation at a reasonable price!

Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway.
Owner response: I know we are located close to Mt Lassen Volcanic park. I have not been to Mt Shasta from Westwood so not sure of the distance.. I think our home reminds people of what Grandma's home was or would be. It has that kind of feeling associated with it. we have antique items of yesteryears. but wilh all modern conveniences.
Great location for fishing
Great location for fishing
We enjoyed our stay in this very homey vacation cottage. My wife & I found this to be a e location for trout fishing & quaint town with the best pizza (Buffalo Chips} any where around. We limited out in our catch of trout two days in a row ( in record time). We found this to be a desirable location visit to Lasson National park which is a must see.

About the owner: This was our family vacation home and when my parents passed away we were already in the vacation rental business and wanted to share this special place with family friends and guests. I have always thought of Westwood as a fishing dream destination as I have spent so many hours chasing the trout here.
Why the Owner Chose East Shore:
A Town is Born Here in the heart of the wilderness Where wildlife roamed at will Amid primeval forest Where even time stood still, Where rushing rivers downward dashed Through meadows green with waving grass Snowy peaks towered to the skies Amid smiling lakes that watched closeby. Where the trees talked to the stars at night And the moon looked down and smiled. Where the breeze whispered secrets And the lakes extend for miles. Into this place of towering pines Where natures voise excelled all chimes Came man with ax and saw and blade And out of this land so fair and free a town was born for you and me. In the heart of the Sierras You will find it nestled there The little town of Westwood with traditions quaint and rare. As years go by and times holds sway its houses may fall into decay, It's people may leave for parts unknown The years and streets may be overgrown Even the breeze may seem to sigh with memories of the days gone by. But in our hearts and in our minds there will always be a Westwood There among the pines. By Ethel Hurd (recorded in 1949)
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Country Cottage is a very comfortable home that welcomes you to really relax, explore our town and the surrounding areas I have placed a booklet in the home letting you in on some of our in town events, places to eat, and little known areas like the Subway Lave Caves to have to see to believe. Everything is provided here. Just bring your toothbrush and clothes and food you want to eat unless you want to eat at our local restaurants. ( The Old Mill ( breakfast and lunch) Buffalo Chips ( PIzza +++) The Moonlight Cafe ( new dinner house) snack shacks and taco stands too. We also have Youngs Super Market that has been here since the early 50's and is a fixture in our town.
