About Michelle McKenzie

Welcome to our Lake Almanor Home. We are Shawn & Michelle McKenzie. Shawn grew up in Chester and graduated from Chester High School. Michelle grew up in southern Oregon. We met and married in the early 90's. We currently live in South Placer County.

Michelle McKenzie purchased this house in 2010

Why Michelle McKenzie chose Lake Almanor West

When our two boys were young, we enjoyed many family camping trips nearby at Rocky Point Campground. We purchased this home in 2010 and are very grateful for the time we have been able to spend here with family and friends. We hope you will enjoy the beautiful Lake Almanor area and our mountain home, as well. Cheers!

What makes this house unique

The most enjoyable feature of this home is the comfortable "mountain home" feel, vaulted ceilings with grand windows, and the location. The back yard is on the first fairway of the Lake Almanor West golf course, and you can still enjoy a peek of the lake from the front of the house. We love being able to walk to the recreation center, the boat launch, and the paved trails. Lake Almanor West Drive is also great for "people watching" as they walk, run, cycle and enjoy the outdoors.

Great, comfortable family vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at the McKenzie's Almanor home. Very comfortable family vacation home with a bit of a lake view from the front and the golf course on the back. Quiet. Plenty of parking. Well equipped Kitchen and handy to have laundry appliances for use. Owner very easy to deal with and responsive. Always spit-spot clean. We will be back....

This home is even more gorgeous in person!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful mountain home was beyond perfect! Our family trip couldn't have gone any better as there was plenty of space for our family of 8 to enjoy ourselves. The home itself was fully stocked with all you could need (they even had a waffle maker!!) and Michelle (the owner) was very responsive to any questions we had. The home had plenty of DVD's to watch but outside is really the best place to be with the jacuzzi and all of the wildlife to watch. The neighbors had a couple of adorable labs which we enjoyed watching play, as well. They barked a tiny bit in the mornings but the owners were on top of it right away and hushed them right up.

We thoroughly enjoyed Lake Almanor.... it is breathtaking and barely any other people were there during the 4th of July week! We felt as though we had the lake to ourselves on the pontoon we rented from Major's Outpost. We enjoyed attempting to fish but unfortunately, didn't catch anything this time.

Only one warning for those who stay at any home on the lake. As we unloaded our cars, we kept the doors of the home open to make unloading easier. A chipmunk in the area felt very comfortable with people and decided he wanted a tour of the house. It was quite comical after we got him out but they are sneaky little guys! LOL

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!! We hope to rent your home again in the future!!

Ideal Space! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is sooo comfortable and has a nice view of the lake from both the great room and the master suite. We felt at home right from the start. The location is very close to the recreation area-beach access to the lake. We also had a great time taking walks and kayaking on the lake!

Perfect retreat home at Lake Almanor; pristine and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

This home was ideal for our family retreat. It is spacious, spotlessly clean, and more fully outfitted than almost any place we have rented over the years. The Master Suite was a perfect get-away for us, the grandparents, and the kids and grandkids had plenty of space in the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. We all loved the hottub, the ability to grill and eat at the lovely patio table, the proximity to the beach and playground, and the lovely setting. Two in our group played golf adjacent to the property. All of us took a nighttime walk to see a stunning star filled sky. Everything about this place made us feel at home. It was convenient to have the washer-dryer, too. And cooking in the kitchen was a delight. Our hosts anticipated all our needs. Many thanks.
