Lake Almanor - Hamilton Branch
Fantastic weekly rental for our family of four with dog. Great house that is well kept. Sweet view of the Hamilton branch inlet...the ospreys are really amazing to watch. New dock was perfect for canoe, floats, and swimming. Plenty of deck space and seating for lounging about and hammock for naps.
Kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed for cooking (bonus for the storage containers!). Dining area overlooking the lake was great for meals and family board games. Beds are very comfortable! Grassy lawn fun for some croquet and bocci with the kids. Lots of DVD's to choose from, plus some board games, cards, puzzles, etc.
Things to consider: There is virtually no public beach/lake access on the entire East shore of Almanor, so the house dock is it (the West shore has lots of National Forest public beach/lake access). The Wifi internet access (DSL) at the house is very inconsistent (to put it mildly)... we could get it working for 5-30 minutes at a time = a bit of a problem since that was our only way to explore things to do in the area - highly recommend you do all of your research before you arrive!
Dianne at Ron Martin Realty is the property manager and she was fantastic.... very responsive to e-mails/phone calls and answered all our questions.
We love the fact that you had a Great Vacation with your family. It is our goal for families to come and enjoy a make fantastic memories.
We certainly hope you will return for more fun packed vacations in the future.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. Blessings!
A wonderful July 2019 Lake Almanor vacation
We had a Great Lake Almanor vacation with our grandkids and others. The house is in a perfect spot with a very visible view of the lake, the dock and a beautiful forest with an Osprey nest in full view (we watched them catch and bring fish back to the nest everyday).
There are 3 outside decks with comfortable chairs as well as a large indoor space with many windows facing the lake all with great views.
The last few steps down to the dock were not for the faint of heart.
We had a great vacation.
We had a family gathering for end of summer. Several fishermen in the group. The weather was perfect in September. Around 80* at the hottest point in the day but cool and crisp in the mornings. The back overlooking the river was a view unsurpassed. The porch room with airbed hide-a-bed [ I'm told was very comfy} was fought over by several of the group! It felt like you were in a tree house! My husband and I had the master suite, also great bed. We were a party of ten, ages 3-80. The climb down to the dock was difficult for the older ones but worth it ! However as luck would have it, the fishing was not great. After four days we had enough fish for dinner for everyone.
Sounds like a wonderful family outing, making memories for years to come. You came at the perfect time weather wise, we are sorry our fish did not cooperate, but thankful you did get one meal of our yummy trout.
We hope you will return many times and make more precious memories.
Perfect location, space for all, outside patio wonderful!
We chose this home for the proximity to lake and weren’t disappointed. We hardly had the incentive to do much else but just hang around the patio and dock area. The location was perfect in the cove off the lake. It was a great place to watch the kids swim, the seclusion was nice and the trees surrounding the patio was enjoyable in the heat of summer.
Lake Almonar is a new discovery for our family. We all did a Tahoe house years ago, and all were in agreement of how much better , less crowded, less commercialized this area is. And , the lake itself is wonderful.
If you are looking for that new remodeled gourmet ‘Chip and Joe’ kitchen, you might have to move on to something else. If you are just looking for a nice, comfortable home with mountain character, spectacular location and views, you will find it here. The additional guest qtrs off the garage was nice for my wife and myself as we like to retire early, and left the house for our 3 children , spouses and grandkids to enjoy evening games and entertainment.
Diane was a joy to work with and everything was in order and went accordingly.
We all felt at home here and hated to leave.
We found a gem, perfect location for our spread out family.
Lord willing, we would love to return here!!!!
Nice property, but has not had proper attention to rodent proofing the studio
This is a nice property, unfortunately there were mice in the studio portion. We notified property management and they responded quickly. The only solution they had with pest control was to set sticky traps. Which means we would have to wait till the mice went on the traps. This took a couple days to happen. This rendered the studio useless to us. There were also mouse droppings in the drawers with the utensils. Pretty gross. Normally I wouldn’t leave a negative comment as a business owner I know stuff happens. I was told we could have a discount off of next years rental. On top of this th BBQ was not able to be used without catching fire for the first few days. It was replaced a couple days after arriving. This wasn’t a cheap place to stay and there should be a working BBQ in good condition and no rodents in the house and definitely no rodents droppings in the utensils. Even if there was all that, afterwards there should be some attempt at compensation for the loss of use for part of the property.
The owner of the home has a monthly pest control contract, the tenant contacted the management late in the afternoon to report that his Mom had seen a mouse in the studio apartment and that there were some mouse dropping in the silverware drawer. Management contacted the pest control company they came out the next morning. The company placed sticky pads in the studio. California law does not allow for any pesticides used inside to kill mice, the cleaners came out immediately and cleaned the draw of a few mouse dropping. The owner did everything in his power to resolve the mouse problem. He cannot control the environment in the mountains. Management was never notified after the pest control company came out that there was still a problem. Tenant emailed pictures of the mice being caught, but that was after tenant left. If management had been notified of a continuing problem pest control would have been called out again.
Tenants Mom did have a place to stay and sleep in the lake house.
Tenant called management about the Bar-B-Que on July 3, management purchased a new Bar-B-Q immediately, it was delivered within 4 hours of tenant’s request.
The owner offered tenant an $800.00 discount for next year for tenant’s inconvenience. Owner is not understanding the poor review since all tenant’s request were addressed immediately.
The WI FI is weak, the dock was set up poorly, the trail to the water is steep and difficult for some, the house was OK, there are only three beds the rest are sofa beds, the lawn was nice for games, the outside fire pit is nice for early risers.
This is a dog friendly home.
