Lake Almanor Peninsula house description
The Lake Almanor Basin is best known as a recreation paradise and the gateway to nearby Lassen Volcanic National Park. It’s where the Sierra Nevada range and the Cascade range meet.
Our home is located near the Hamilton Branch inlet to Lake Almanor. This is at the North end of the East Shore, just down the road from the Country Club golf course on the peninsula, and the golf course at Bailey Creek. We are conveniently located near the intersection of A13 and Highway 147, within minutes of the towns of Clear Creek and Westwood. Also close by is the main town of Chester with all your grocery and rental and shopping needs. Fly-in vacations are easy at the Rogers Field Airport.
We completed construction on our vacation home in the summer of 2008. It has approximately 1900 sq. ft. of living space, with views of Dyer Mountain from our Great Room. Just the other side of Dyer Mountain, someday in the future, construction will begin on a proposed, premier 4 season, resort with downhill ski area, golf courses, mountain bike trails, shops, restaurants, ice skating rink, recreation center and homes. For now it is a quiet, laid back recreation area.
We have furnished our vacation rental with all the comforts of home and more. It is ideal for 6 people but can accommodate 10. The spacious gourmet kitchen has table service for 16 so you will not have to run the dishwasher after every meal. There is also room for more than 10 to dine.
There are 3 bedrooms; 1 King bed in Master Suite, 1 Queen in second bedroom, and 2 Twins in third bedroom. In the third bedroom you will also find a nice convertible sofa that pulls out to a Queen bed. The Master Suite has a huge walk through closet that could be perfect for a nursery, with plenty of space for a porta-crib. The Master Bath is spacious with double sinks and both a full shower and separate tub. A hallway bathroom is shared by the two other guest rooms with a half bath off the large laundry room near the front of the house.
We know that you will be very comfortable in our home away from home, whether you are coming just to relax, or to take part in all that Lake Almanor has to offer. For examples of the myriad of adventures to be had here, please see “activities” under Vacation Rental Features below.

- Visit nearby Lassen Volcanic National Park. I would say that it is a little known version of Yellowstone Park. See the new visitor center to get an idea of all the park has to offer. Take one of the many hiking trails or just enjoy the beauty from your car window. Spend another day at Drakesbad Guest Ranch and take a dip in their Hot Springs pool. Later you can enjoy their guests bbq dinner and later gather around the campfire. they also offer horseback rides into the park. In the winter there is access to snowshoe right outside the front door. If you have a snowmobile,you will be happy to know that it is a very short drive to one of the local snowmobile parks. ...moreless

This was my second visit to this lovely home in 4 years. It offers comfort and a touch of luxury to enjoy the relaxing environment of Hamilton Branch. The customer service by the owners and their representative was top notch, with added information provided that gives any visitors a feeling of a home town trip. TVs available were only functioning for DVD viewing, so watching any normal channels was not available, but other than that, everything was perfect. I would definitely return and suggest this location to others.

Home Away from Home
Home Away from Home
We just got back from our vacation to Lake Almanor. After a seven hour trip on our Harleys we were relieved to finally reach our destination. We were pleased when we pulled up to the house and delighted when we entered it. The house was exactly as described in the posting and had all the comforts of home, which was very important to us as we were only able to carry a minimal amount of things on our bikes. The open kitchen and great room makes the living space an ideal setting for any gathering. The house was equipped with all of the essentials one would need for cooking and the deck has a nice gas barbecue. The house more than suited our needs (five adults) on this road trip; however, it would also be an ideal home for any family with children. The house is located within a small community of homes and was safe enough that we did not have to worry about our bikes at night. We also enjoyed a walk to the lake (about 1 mile) and evening walks in the neighborhood. This house is truly a gem. You'll want to check out if you are interested in renting a home at Lake Almanor.

My family and friends enjoyed our visit. Lake Almanor is a delightful recreation area worth seeing and exploring. This property had all the modern conveniences, was clean and very comfortable for our two adults and five kids pack. Location is a nice quiet neighborhood, just minutes from the lake and other activities. I would certainly recommend this property to friends, family and others interested in enjoying the area.

We so enjoyed our vacation at Lake Almanor. The house was so much more than we ever expected, so spacious and clean. There was nothing that the owners didn't think of. Our family enjoyed many great meals prepared in the very well equipt kitchen. Especially loved all beautiful serving dishes. (If you feel the need to eat out, we would highly recommend Gamboni's Penninsula Grill or Tantardino's Pizzeria & Pasta. Both restaurants are located nearby on Peninsula Dr., across the street from each other.) After long days of sun and fun at the lake, we slept so well on the comfy, obviously new, beds.

Thank you again for sharing your loveley home. The photos do not do it justice. The new construction plus the tasteful decor make your beautiful home very enjoyable! The town of Chester was a sweet example of what a slower paced, simple vacation town should be. We especially loved the burgers at the gass station and the soda fountain at the gift shop. We will be back, thank you again.

About the owner: We live on the central coast of California. It's about a 7 hour drive away, with stops for the girls and our dog CoCo. My husband Joe works for a college and I am a Chef. We have 2 girls, one in 8th grade and one in a junior. They both swim competitively and play water Polo which keeps us all very busy. The girls love going to the lake. They have made great friends in the neighborhood that they sled with in the winter and ride bikes to the lake with in the summer. We all enjoy going out on our boat. Having the launch ramp only 4 blocks away makes it convenient to get into the water quick. My husband and I, but mostly Joe, have built this house 80% ourselves. Joe's love for building has made this a true adventure. Sometimes through rain, snow and sleet, taking all his vacation time and every other weekend for a year, Joe left for Lake Almanor to build our lake house. It has been a true labor of love. He has done such a great job, and we would now like to share it with others. If you bring your friends and family we're sure you won't be disappointed. There are so many great things to do here and you'll have a roomy, comfortable home to call your own during your stay. We're sure you'll make great memories here, as we have. Happy Vacationing! Joe, Dee Dee, Kamele, Lily and CoCo.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Almanor Peninsula:
We fell in love with Lake Almanor in 2005, after visiting family that lived in the area. It's almost like being in Mayberry RFD, the people are so friendly and helpful, and there's almost no crime. Though we love living on the Central Coast we decided to build a second home in a 'small community, four season' recreational area. We searched for this property for over a year. My husband Joe would drive up and scout around looking for the perfect place to build. We finally found what we were looking for with a view of the mountains and so close to the lake. The house was completed in the fall of 2008.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are so many unique benefits that we enjoy while spending time at our property. Joe's brother designed the original plans for our house which we modified to accommodate our needs to entertain large groups of friends and family. I have enjoyed designing the big kitchen and stocking it with almost everything we could posible need to create a gourmet meal, with plenty of room to have the whole family get involved. For spending time indoors, we enjoy a great collection of family games, and movies for both young and old. When we feel like enjoying the great outdoors we play basketball in our huge driveway or sometimes launch our boat and spend the day fishing or tubing and skiing. We also love all the biking opportunities in the area. On one of our more adventurous days we 'lunched' at nearby historical Drakesbad and afterwards took a dip in their pool fed by the hot springs. Next time we may add a horseback ride, and then dinner and campfire stories. During the winter we get to snow shoe right out our front door through the forest. We have also had the opportunity to go snowmobiling wth friends in different locations nearby. Our girls just love playing in the snow and sledding with neighborhood friends. One of these times spent at our vacation home we hope to hike Mt. Lassen. There's so many things to enjoy here, we haven't explored them all yet.
