Property description

Chester Creekside Cabin is a beautiful, historic country home set amid large, rolling lawns. Built in the 1900s, this graceful home has been fully restored. Newer additions have retained the home’s original charm while enhancing it with spacious living quarters and modern amenities.

With a creek running through the property, a picnic table under a majestic pine tree, and lawns on two sides, Chester Creekside Cabin is an ideal place for the entire family to gather. It is located in Old Towne Chester in a quiet, historic, residential neighborhood that is perfect for strolling.

Chester Creekside Cabin is walking distance to shops, restaurants, and coffee, and a 10-minute drive to Lake Almanor. Swimming, golfing, biking, hiking, ATV riding, and boating are available nearby.

The 2,000 square-foot home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The spacious living room has a sofa bed that sleeps two, as well as a wood stove, a table for playing board and card games, and a large sectional couch. *__*

The home is professionally designed, with an open floor plan that provides a comfortable flow between the living room, dining room, and fully-equipped kitchen. The dining room table seats 10.

The roomy master suite has a new queen bed and a large bathroom with a shower. Also located downstairs is a second bathroom, with a shower as well as an oversized bathtub. Upstairs there are three charming bedrooms. One bedroom has two twin beds, the second has one twin bed, and the third has a full bed.

A large covered porch provides another beautiful space for friends and family to gather. Overlooking the tranquil lawn and bubbling creek, the porch is an ideal setting for enjoying a book, a glass of wine, a sunset, or a conversation.

This beautifully appointed home includes an outdoor barbeque, linens, laundry facilities, DVDs, books, board games, children’s items, picnic supplies, plenty of wood for the wood stove, and lots of other resources to make your stay at Chester Creekside Cabin hassle-free and fun!
