                          The cottage is located on 287 acres in a pristine canyon and is the ideal location for those folks truly wishing to get away from the hurried daily activities of life. Wildlife abounds here in the canyon. There are groomed trails and a mountain creek to explore and many special hideaways to discover.

                          Most folks don't want to leave the canyon but should you be touched by a bit of wanderlust, there are no shortage of options. Head up to the mountains where Lassen National Park and Lake Almanor are less than an hour away. Chico and the valley are only 30 minutes from the cottage. If you enjoy history, the Bidwell Mansion video and tour are a must see. Gold mining touched this area and creates its own tour. Winter brings the migratory birds and the Snow Goose Festival to the valley. Spring brings a spectacular wildflower display to Table Mountain, an area well known to plant enthusiasts. If you like Farmers' Markets, you should not miss the Saturday morning Market in Chico. It is one of the best. The University, CSUChico, frequently has activities on its lovely campus. The arts are an important part of the community so you will find lots of opportunities to hear music, view art, or attend dramatic presentations. And if you want to take a break from cooking, you'll have no shortage of good restaurant choices.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1996

                          About the owner: “After living in this special canyon for 14 years, I realized that one of my favorite activities was sharing the canyon with others. Chico Canyon Retreat grew from that love. The location is unusually pristine and we have worked hard over the years to enhance that pristine characteristic as we work to return the land to its native state.

                          Why the Owner Chose Chico:
                          It is not often one gets to live where one would vacation, but that is exactly what happened to me. We spent several years using every vacation to visit cliff dwellings in the southwest. Then came the interest in the WPA lodges in our National Parks and the way natural materials from the surroundings were used in the construction. Put that together with a love of camping under the stars, mix it well, and the result was Chico Canyon Retreat.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          In the morning, imagine sitting on the viewing deck with a cup of coffee as you watch the sun touch the canyon rim and move down the face as it illuminates the entire canyon. The many birds become active as the sun creeps into the canyon. Maybe you'll see a flock of turkeys passing by on the way to the creek. You may want to experience an early morning creek hike as you watch the canyon awaken. View the creek from the 1935 bridge on the property and let your mind wander past the beauty and into the history of what is before you: the cultural history of the Maidu tribe and the geological history of at least 75 million years. Fill your day with exploration of the hiking trails and creek or just find a special hideaway and curl up with a book. Cap your day with a hot tub soak under the stars. These are just some of the things that make your stay at the Canyon Cottage unique.
