    Great place!

    Reviewed by: Pat M. on


    Very nice cabin, nicely decorated and recently renovated. We were pleasantly surprised by everything provided for guest use. We did have a problem with using our wifi to hook up to the DVD player to download Netflix or Hulu material, but let's face it, not the reason we were there. Overall a comfortable place that I would rent again.

    nice get away

    had a good stay at this nice mountain home. took a little searching to figure out the public access to the lake. it's straight across from the mailboxes. we put down our own anchor/ bout and played for 5 days.. it's about a 1/4 mile walk. we did check out Westwood beach just a 1/4 mile farther down the road it's nice to.

    Thank you

    We so appreciate your cabin for our Florida family reunion! The cabin is decorated so cute and cozy and we had a great time. The deck is nice and spacious. We enjoyed stargazing every night.

    We realize it’s not always hot in Almanor. But it was so hot whilst we were there with no blinds to block out the afternoon sun. We had to buy 3 fans just to sleep. (We left one for your future guests.)

    In the future, please have more towels. There were only five in the entire house (2 were quite worn with holes) and we had six guests. Please let your guests know the driveway is incredibly steep so they are prepared with renting a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Finally, I called your contact person within two hours of checking in to ask about the internet connection (which we decided was nonexistent) and other questions and we never heard back from her. It would have been nice to get a returned call to at least check in on us.

    loved it

    The house is lovely. Few things to keep in mind There is no AC which means it is hot and there are no fans, so bring fans lots of fans. The house faces into the sun all day and they have no shade or umbrellas on the patio so bring some. We brought two canopies that covered the whole deck and made the sun not shine in though the glass windows all day which helped to keep it cool. We thought of this place as upgraded camping, we had a bed and a shower but no AC or internet/wifi. We spent most of our time on the beach. They said the water was right across the street and this was true but it is all private property and you have no access so we drove to the damn and played on the free beaches everyday. The kitchen says it is fully stocked but it is not. Bring your own spices. We really did have a great time just be prepared.

    Beautiful and Comfortable Cabin

    Reviewed by: Janet P. on


    This is a beautiful cabin and everything was exactly as listed. We truly enjoyed our week at this well appointed home. The owner was also very kind and quick to respond to any questions we had. I would definitely recommend this cabin and would definitely rent it again. Thanks Marcy for allowing us to book your home and for promptly replying to any concerns.

    Comfy cabin with a great deck

    Reviewed by: Gwyneth G. on


    Great cabin for a family or two -- compact but plenty of room, with a fantastic, big deck for lounging and stargazing. There is not direct lake access, but we found a nice little beach a few miles down the road. The driveway is very steep with loose gravel - we barely made it up with our front-wheel drive.

    It's very clear, the owners took much care to ensure a luxurious stay for their guests. Besides a new and beautifully decorated home (yes, the pictures are creative angles or lighting!) the owners stocked the home with amenities (soaps, towels, games, movies, loads of kitchenware, etc) that were not only plush but themed and decorative! As we were new to Almanor and arriving late at night, the owners helped much to connect with me and give detailed instructions on the approach to the house as it isn't as obvious as finding the address and pulling into the driveway. The lack of WiFi just meant more family time instead of screen time for the teenagers...a huge surprise and blessed bonus. We've stayed at many vacation rentals globally, this is a family consensus favorite! Only two things to be aware of. 1) Steep gravel driveway: We had a big heavy truck that needed to be shifted into 4WD to get up the driveway. Traction on the way down was an issue for us. We decided to park at the bottom of the hill and walk up. 2) Train is close enough that morning air horns can be heard if windows are open. We closed the bedroom windows and slept well.

    Overall highly recommended!

    The only issue was no WiFi or cable. TVs are hooked to Blu Ray player only. Need to put that in the description. Other than that perfect newer unit.
