                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1952

                  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 Lake Almanor Peninsula:
                  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.
