Chico chateau / country house description

Chico Creekfront Perfect Getaway in beautiful Butte Creek Canyon. 2500 sq ft home GREAT for family reunions, getaways or as a romantic retreat or stay. Swim with the salmon all summer in the deep hole off the back deck where 40-100 salmon stay from April to October when they spawn. Watch them jump as you enjoy dinner on the deck or use the mask & snorkle to see them up close as they flutter by you. Take the sturdy stairs that lead down to some great diving rocks. There are kayaks to rent if you wish to adventure down to the historical cover bridge. It is an easy go of it but exciting and beautiful all the same. Enjoy bird watching or get lucky to see deer, quail, turkey vultures, otters or a variety of waterfowl. Listen to the creek as you soak in the tub or enjoy the hot tub on the back deck. This is truly a perfect getaway just minutes from Chico. If you love to bike, it is a perfect 7 mile ride downhill to the 6 hole golf course or bike up for a great scenic workout. This is also a historical sight and you can learn about the diamondville area in the gold rush days at the museum just 2 miles further up. Else, inquire about a special guest pass to get access to the mining cave on site.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: I work full time at the local community college but this getaway I bought is my true dream and renting it helps for me to afford it while continuing to work on making it even better year after year. It feeds my soul and my love of nature just minutes out of town. I go here to unwind, play with my friends and family. We ride dirt bikes on the local trails and swim with the fish. My 16 year old son is a pro on the rope swing. My dream is to share it with others, improve it each year and have others appreciate it as much as I do and hopefully return year after year or tell their friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Chico:
                  You have to come stay and you will know instantly why. It is truly natures fun world!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Dirt biking on the local trails, swimming with the salmon, tubing, hot tubbing, kayaking, mountain bike riding, gold panning, skipping rocks, soaking up the sun, watching the wildlife, playing pool, watching a movie, playing ping pong, foosball, video games, basketball, laying in the hammock. Eating, drinking and enjoying nature, friends and family.
