22.8 miles from Bucks Lake
This beautiful home is located on the East Shore of Lake Almanor. An all weather paved road is open all year for summer and winter access. The home is right on the water with its very large beach and so close to the water that you can hear the water lapping at the shore. This house is really right on the water. No walking down a path or trail, not behind another house, not across the road, but right on the water and you have your OWN boat launching ramp, large dock, 2 buoys, RV Spot and 3 Jet Ski Ramps that allows you to pull your jet ski right up on the shore, instead of leaving it in the water when you are not using it.
The house faces West to capture the incredible sunsets and views of Mt Lassen. The large deck has a built-in gas BBQ plus an additional charcoal BBQ. In addition there is an outside hot shower, 2 person swing, a hammock, basketball hoop, horseshoe pit, 2 chaise lounges, lots of chairs and benches, 3 dining tables, one of which seats 10 and altogether can seat more than 20 people.
Tall pines shade the house from most sun but do not block your expansive views of this very large lake. Good fishing can be found at Lake Almanor with several varieties of fish. Small mouth bass fishing is best right off of the large boat dock. Trout can also be seen and caught from the dock.
A 2 person kayak and 2 peddle/paddle boats are also provided.
The inside of this home is truly remarkable with a large brick and rock fireplace, two story open beam ceiling, large kitchen with breakfast island, sun room/dining room with great views of the lake, 4 bedrooms and two baths. Master has a queen bed. Guest bedroom has a queen and a single blow up if needed, den has 2 singles and a queen blow up if needed. Downstairs is a bunk room that we are converting to 3 bunk beds, single on top and full on the bottom. So as many as 9 people in there. All of our grandkids want to stay together in one room instead of being split up.
The house is cooled by the tall pines, many windows, sliding doors, fans, and a large cooler. The sheds have air filled water toys to play in the water. Bikes are provided ( 2 adult and many kids ) and there are many bike trails in the area, including one that runs around part of the lake and another that runs along an abandoned railroad line next to the Susan River and 30 miles to Susanville, California.
Bald Eagles and Ospreys nest near the house and are seen almost daily fishing for their dinner right in front of your door. Hearing them call to one another is truly remarkable and occasional fights occur. This home is very private, yet on a main road and close to restaurants, gas, shopping, and Chester California, the Gateway to Lassen National Park.
Many of the rentals nearby are either condo's or houses in a group setting and not really right on the lake, and are usually crowded with other renters. Many of them are on coves or inlets that become dry when the lake drops during the summer. Here you are always right on the water and really by yourselves. There are neighbors, but most are summer homes that are stayed in infrequently.
Staying here during the winter is truly magical and with the road plowed if there has been snow. The lake is very calm in the winter, perfect for cruising the lake in our kayak. We have been out January 1st, the lake was like glass and the temperature was 50 degrees, hot on the water and no one around. There are 2 snowmobile parks nearby plus numerous trails for snowmobiling and cross country skiing. A major ski resort is also in the works for the area. and a small ski area, Coppervale Ski Area is 10 miles from the house. This area includes a Poma Lift, Rope Tow, Half Pipe, Jumps and Rails. Alpine, Nordic and Cross Country with Groomed Trails. Lessons Available.
Other times the beauty of the snowfall on the lake and forest is really breathtaking. Families staying at Lake Almanor and this wonderful home have made never to forget lifetime memories. Our children and grandchildren never want to leave the lake and want to spend the majority of the time on the beach.
Weddings are popular at our house and with the lake as a background, it doesn't get anymore special than this.
Summer fills up fast so please check our calendar for availability.

We also provide VHS and DVD movies and players with an articulating wall mounted 47 inch LED LCD Panasonic Flat Screen TV plus another flat screen in the master bedroom. There is also Amazon Prime FREE Movies.
I do not think there are any houses closer to the water than ours. When the lake retreats in the summer, it never gets very low and you just end up with more beach. We have removed almost all of the rocks from the beach and built a large dock to go along with the boat launching ramp and buoy.
Large groups can be accommodated with an additional house we have available. Total sleeping with both houses would be 27 in beds with 2 docks and 4 buoys.
