About the property

Beautiful Mountain Views

Vacation house for rent located in the heart of Northern California 10 miles west of Chester / Lake Almanor on Highway 36 (about 60 miles from Red Bluff, CA which is off of Interstate 5).

This scenic year-round highway is the dividing line of the Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges. The house is about three hours from Sacramento - 4 hours from the S.F. Bay Area, between Lassen Park and Chester (about 12 miles to Lake Almanor, about 22 miles to Lassen Park, some great fishing not very far away).

The house has two bedrooms (1 queen bed, 2 twin beds), 2 bathrooms, living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. It has a small deck in the back overlooking a pond (that sometimes has wild ducks on it).

You have a nice view of a meadow and the mountains from the back. You may even have deer visiting the creek in the evenings in the back meadow!! The night sky is incredible for stargazers!!

Nearby attractions:

• Mt. Lassen Volcanic Park: 22 miles to Lassen - over 100 miles of hiking trails, lakes, bubbling mud pots, and waterfalls.

• Chester and Lake Almanor: 10 miles to Chester / Lake Almanor area

• The Pacific Crest Trail which runs from Mexico to Canada is just over a mile away from the cabin.

* Rates starting at $105.00 per night for up to two guests, $115.00 per night for up to 4 guests.

Agree with the other reviewers

Just what we were looking and hoping for. The "White House" was recently remodeled and is very well kept. We appreciated the clean linens and towels. The kitchen looks out over a green meadow at a mountain view. After hiking all day in the park we were too tired to go out and ended up eating there while enjoying the view. Don't expect blazing internet speeds but you should be able to grab emails off the wireless. A new repeater should be installed in the attic soon. Helga, the owner, has been there for many years and should be complimented on how nice our stay was. We will definitely return for another stay so we can hike more of the beautiful Lassen National Park.

Close to Mt Lassen, clean and friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our annual climb and ski on Mt Lassen. The owner, Helga, is very nice, and the house was very clean and well appointed. We did not use the BBQ, but we will on our next trip. There's tons of room in the house. This is a great place to launch adventures. There's great mountain biking, hiking and fishing and skiing at Mt Lassen. The only disappointment was dinner in Chester. We got in late and there was only one place to eat...not recommended. Bring your own eats!

An absolutely wonderful place to stay near Lassen National Park

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while on our annual family get together to cut Christmas trees. I had driven by this house a hundred times over the years and never realized it was a vacation rental. It is perfectly located near Lassen National Park, Lake Almanor and the Mill Creek area. The house is beautiful, comfortable and spacious. While the pictures online are accurate, they do not do this place justice. The front room is large and comfortable, the dining room is spacious and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need! It is nicely decorated and well maintained. The layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms in the house allows for maximum privacy for everyone. Our host was the most kind and friendly person we have ever dealt with over the years when renting a vacation home. We will surely be back again next year.

An Excellent Stay with an Excellent Host

  • 5 of 5

We don't write reviews unless we really enjoyed our stay or were really disappointed.

In this case, we were really impressed with this rental experience. On arrival, we found the vacation house to be spacious, very clean and well maintained. Everything about the property is just as described and as shown in the pictures, if not better.

Helga is a very friendly and caring host. On meeting us, she gave us a tour of the property and made us feel very comfortable. One night, she even came over to tell us there was supposed to be a meteor shower later that evening.

If you are looking for a nice, clean, homey place to stay while visiting Lassen Volcanic National Park, fishing in the nearby creeks or generally exploring the surrounding area, we highly recommend you consider renting Helga’s vacation house.

FYI, Helga also has another house available right next door (listing no. 248641). We understand that house has been available for a longer period of time and for that reason, has many more reviews. If you read those reviews, you will find that all of them vouch for how well maintained the property is and what a great host Helga is. She's sincere and genuinely interested in making sure her visitors enjoy their stay.

We’re sure you will not be disappointed renting from Helga.

Very clean

  • 4 of 5

This house was very clean and a nice place to stay. Helga was very helpful and was available to show us the house and answer any questions we had about our stay or the surrounding area. (ask about the history of the lodge next's interesting!) Be aware if you have small children there is several ponds and canals so toddlers will have to be watched closely outside. The southern entrance to Lassen park is about a half hour away and lake almanor is 10-15 min away. Very quiet area and internet is spotty but available (this is not promised so just a bonus).

Convenient location near to the southwest entrance of Lassen National Park

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while visiting Lassen National Park.

The house is great. Two bedroom, and two full bathrooms (one with a tub) - lots of space in the house.

Owner is very friendly and helpful if we had any questions.

Very easy drive from the house to the main (south-west) entrance of Lassen NP (maybe 15 to 20 minutes - don't remember exactly because the drive is beautiful, so easy to loose track of time).

Kitchen is fully outfitted, including a dishwasher.

There is a nice place to eat outside (covered deck), and it looks out over a small pond and stream with mountains in the background.

The property has 3 houses on it, but other than that, there is not much around. Don't know how far it is to get to a grocery or connivence store (we brought all our own food to cook in the kitchen). From the back of the house, it is easy to walk out the back of the property to stroll through woods/meadows.

For this particular trip, we were very keen to get a house that had internet, and this was one of the few places we found with wireless internet access. It did not work in all parts of the house, and it works better if you have a newer laptop (with a better antenna to pick up the signal), but the owner mentioned they were considering a "booster" which I think would be great.

Unfortunately we had to leave earlier than planned, but still we enjoyed the stay very much, and will plan to come back.
