About Cindy McCullough

We raised our 2 boys in the Monterey area on the Central California Coast. They were headed toward college and getting busy with their separate lives. Our house was the place that all the kids would hang out after school, from elementary age through their high school years. Pizza deliveries were numerous! I miss those days when my boys were home. So when we bought this house I visualized a place where my boys would want to enjoy with us. All the perks like WiFi, 2 HDTV's, pool table, BBQ, hammock and the summer concert program keeps them coming back.

I'm enjoying learning the local topography, bird calls, observing the abundant local critters and learning the diverse assortment of trees and plants that make up this beautiful Lassen National Forest. So after living on the California coast forever, I am now learning the mountain version af all things great and small.

Sport fishing is my husband's calling. Trolling for the bite in Lake Almanor is the ultimate relaxation for him.

Lake Almanor is where we all want to be! so now we are opening up this special place to you as your own private retreat! We know you will love it as much as we do, for 3 day getaways or a week or a even a month if you want to really forget reality!

It is actually more affordable to book an all inclusive rental home with all of the amenities than staying in a hotel room and paying for all of your meals out.

Come experience it!

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect! Plenty of space and very family friendly. The cabin hosted 2 families of 4 with room to spare. Many amenities and fun activities for adults and kids. Most of all we loved the beach access which was close, quiet and had lots of space. We will be back for sure!

Beautiful and roomy home!

  • 4 of 5

Great home for our gang of 9. The place was comfy during the warm weather (AC is a plus!) and the game room was a hit. Just make sure you bring plenty of flip flops due to this being a heavy tree sap season.

Pluses and Minuses, Consider carefully

  • 3 of 5

In the plus column - small but well-stocked kitchen with good appliances and everything you would need to cook and clean with. Good laundry room and game room. The bonus room in the garage is decent, but hot.

The picture of the house is confusing, and perhaps misleading. It is actually the back of the house, which you would never see unless you go out into the back yard. The front of the house is below the street level with a short steep driveway down. Not enough parking for a large group, and definitely not enough parking if you have a boat or Jet Ski.

There are 3 bedrooms, but really only 2 with beds large enough for 2. There is plenty of futon and couch sleeping, if you have kids.

The yard is all dirt - we didn't use it at all for that reason.

The house is good for groups, but families might want a place with a better yard.

Owner's Response: Owner's note: We strive for perfection in customer service, guest comfort and satisfaction. To start, we are very proud of our beautiful, newly updated kitchen. It’s about 250 sq ft with loads of counter space, more cupboards then I can fill, a pantry, a coffee bar area and a large breakfast bar with barstools for conversation while preparing meals. (Picture #9) As per VRBO instructions we chose this particular image as our featured picture because we felt it to be the best representation of our property. It shows the home is 2 levels, the beautiful observation deck off the upstairs living room, the lower cocktail deck off the lounge & game room and the bbq deck on the side, off the dining room. Front of the house (2nd picture in our photo gallery) shows the drive way is wide and flat. We have a permit for 4 cars. There is a short incline at the beginning of the driveway to reach the street, since we are nestled below street level. (quiet & private). We recommend our guests with boat trailers to rent a slip space at the resort or to park in a turnout right above our property, (in view from the house). We have had jet ski trailers park in the driveway. When necessary, we set up any off street parking with our security office for added protection. We have around 25 rents a year and 10% of those bring boats. Our Man Cave (bonus game room) is separate from the house and can get warm if left closed up on a hot day. We would recommend opening the large window or the main garage door and to use the fans provided there, to move the hot air out. This is a beautiful mountain cabin on an acre of Lassen Forest land. We have left it natural, yet safely manicured to preserve the mountain feel and compatibility with the wild life that is so abundant in our area. I installed a bird bath outside the kitchen window for visual enjoyment and we made a trail leading down to a fairy circle on the property, where we have a picnic table, cocktail table & hammock, (a real hit!), with views of the lake. (Pic #20). Sleeping accommodations for 10. 1 king, 1 queen & 3 doubles (2 are futons). I have slept on one of the futons with my 6 foot husband and we were very comfortable. We are always improving our property and amenities where needed by doing research, listening to guest requests and reviews. Just this year we installed a full air conditioning system, an added comfort for our guests for those hot summer days! Another reason to choose Cedar Ridge Retreat!

Great place for all!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, no complaints other than some unlucky weather we had on the first day, otherwise the location was great. Especially enojoyed the walk in the woods that was conveniently located near the home.
