About The Owner

Gabriel & Susan, Inn keepers of the aBear Den.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Lake Almanor Peninsula

On our first visit, some 15 years ago, we were captivated by the natural beauty and recreation opportunities of Lake Almanor. We purchased the lot in 2000, and completed construction of the aBear Den in 2002. Our extended family has created many precious memories here. We hope you will as well.

What makes this house unique

Being right on the lake is our favorite feature of this property. Being close to 'rec area 2' adds to the convenience. We love the country club golf course. Summer family activities at 'rec area 1' are wonderful, especially Sunday concerts. Late night boat cruises and star gazing - You can almost touch the Milky Way!! And the crème de la crème is the 4th of July fireworks at the point - Not to be missed!!

Exceptional Lake Almanor experience

  • 5 of 5

A stand out among homes at Lake Almanor! Superior design and construction. Exceptionally clean and well appointed. Shade covered decks are perfect for relaxing, dining and entertaining. Concrete stairs are in top notch condition and make for easy lake access. Nicest dock we've seen at the lake and the mooring whips attached to the dock were an easy way to keep our boat safe. Great location near the best boating water on Lake Almanor. Owners are very easy to work with and communicate well. Highly recommend this rental and we'll be back!

Recommendations: provide hand towels and wash cloths in master bathroom. Also, would like to have more than 2 towels in master bathroom. Kitchen was well stocked and organized but would like to have a coffee grinder.

Outstanding lakefront home, superior setting in Lake Almanor County Club!

  • 5 of 5

Pristine, contemporary home in an ideal setting in Lake Almanor Country Club with private dock. The upper and lower decks offer beautiful views of the lake and inspire hours of relaxation. The home is well equipped with amenities including a separate TV room in the main home and an additional Rec room over the garage so all members of our family could have their space. Quality furnishings and hardwood flooring add to the beauty of the home. Our family was appreciative that a home of such excellence was offered for rent by the owners, Gabe and Sue. They provided prompt and clear communication throughout the rental process. We hope to book again in the near future!

Best vacation house ever!

  • 5 of 5

The convenient access to the lake was the first reason our family voted that this was our best vacation house ever. Kids and adults were in the water morning, afternoon, and evening. No packing up to drive anyplace. Just walked down the many steps (good aerobic exercise) and we were at the dock. We brought kayak, canoe, paddle board, and lots of floaties. The water was calm in the morning and a bit bumpy in the afternoon. Inside everything was just what we needed. Comfortable bedrooms and baths, great game room, and well appointed kitchen with plenty of dishes and utensils. The large dining table was perfect for family dinners and the living room provided good seating for reading and conversation. Thanks for sharing your home with our family.

Awesome Lake Almanor Lake Front Home

  • 5 of 5

It's sometimes not interesting to read glowing reviews. They sound fake or phony, almost like an advertisement. It's easy to ignore a five-star review, for what could you really learn about a property?

Perhaps you could learn that this property strikes the perfect balance between the professional and the personal. It is professional like a good hotel is professional -- everything in the place feels new, clean, beautiful and quality. It's personal because unlike a hotel you really feel that you are staying in a private home. For a week (or more if you're lucky) we felt like we had the best of everything: great beds, fantastic kitchen and bathrooms, laundry, a grand table for ten, spectacular views of Lake Almanor from all bedrooms (except the kids rooms), huge decks for enjoying drinks and watching the sun set, a perfect sound system in any room run from one of our iPhones, two separate rooms for the kids so younger kids could go to be earlier and teenagers could sleep in later, a dock on the water for our boats and kayak, tons of parking, oh and a game room for memorable nights playing pool or card games with the whole family.

We had ten people: two families of four and two grandparents. It was perfect. The house could easily hold three families. The game room has a full bath for "extra" guests.

The photos in this listing show all you'll get. The owners delivered a completely professional and yet personal experience that is exactly what you want for a family vacation at the lake.
