Property description

This is a charming, three-story home with a spectacular view from all three levels. It sits high above Lake Almanor and the front garden area includes a view of Mount Lassen to the west. If you are looking for a place to relax and if watching the sun set as you relax on the spacious deck (it goes almost all the way around the house) is appealing to you, then you have found the right place. The house has two separate living areas, both with views. The location is near the end of a quiet street. At the end of the street is the start of a trail on which you can walk for miles with a continuation of the view across Lake Almanor toward Mount Lassen.

The house itself has four bedrooms (king, two queens, one set of bunk beds, and a double-size futon). Two of the bedrooms are on the main level with easy access for elders. The second living area can also function as a fifth bedroom if necessary. While it has tall trees around much of it, it also has large grass areas on three sides that are available for your use as well. Over the last few years, both the house (interior and exterior) and grounds have had considerable work done to them so that everything appears almost as if it were new. Even most of the furnishing are either new or nearly new, with knotty-pine furniture in many rooms and decorated with a country charm.

If your interest is water sports, including fishing, skiing, etc, then being in the Lake Almanor Country Club is ideal for you. The beach area and the boat launch area are a short distance away. Both are available for your use. If your interest is golfing, then you can enjoy the club's scenic golf course that includes views across the lake towards both the east and west.

Near the swimming area (with life guards in summer) is tennis, pickle ball, basket ball, shuffle board and a great playground.

All of the above is inside the gate of the country club, but that is just the beginning as far as things to do are concerned. With Mount Lassen Volcanic National Park as well a national forest nearby, it is sightseeing and hiker's paradise.

We do not rent the house in the Winter months November-March. In Summer we only rent for FULL WEEKS - Saturday to Saturday only.
