Butte Creek Perfect Getaway

Details

Home Description

Chico Creekfront Perfect Getaway in beautiful Butte Creek Canyon. 2500 sq ft home GREAT for family reunions, getaways or as a romantic retreat or stay. Swim with the salmon all summer in the deep hole off the back deck where 40-100 salmon stay from April to October when they spawn. Largest wild run of Chinook Salmon in California and therefore protected from fishing. Fishing is allowed mid November and anglers have pulled dozens of steelhead when fly fishing at my place. (Catch and release at that time but very fun!) Watch the salmon jump as you enjoy dinner on the deck or use the mask & snorkle to see them up close as they flutter by you. Take the sturdy stairs that lead down to some great diving rocks. There are kayaks to rent if you wish to adventure down to the historical cover bridge. It is an easy go of it but exciting and beautiful all the same. Enjoy bird watching or get lucky to see deer, quail, turkey vultures, otters or a variety of waterfowl. Listen to the creek as you soak in the tub or enjoy the hot tub on the back deck. This is truly a perfect getaway just minutes from Chico. If you love to bike, it is a perfect 7 mile ride downhill to the 6 hole golf course or bike up for a great scenic workout. This is also a historical sight and you can learn about the diamondville area in the gold rush days at the museum just 2 miles further up. There is even a mining cave on site. 

A local historian who runs the Centerville museum is also master sportsman who can set up raft, hiking or kayaking excursions. Just call for details or I will provide contact information at the home.

Great getaway in a beautiful setting

We were celebrating our son's graduation from Chico State and it was the perfect location to be out of the crowds of Chico and yet still be within a half hour of all the events. The home is very well stocked and has every amenity you would want. Our entire family attended (aunts, uncles, cousins) and it easily accommodated all of us. We spent the majority of our time on the large deck admiring the view and listening to the rush of Butte Creek. Very relaxing!!!!

Wonderful place to stay

Our stay was wonderful! The house was very spacious and comfortable, and it´s very good located for discovering the region. Most we enjoyed the time in the jacuzzi and sit on the great terrace with a glass of wine. My son was excited of the pool billard and the piano ;-). We missed nothing. Nancy was very nice and helpful - we enjoyed the time we spend together! I just can recommend to choose this wonderful destination for a stay nearby Chico!

We had a wonderful time!

We had a wonderful time! The house was absolutely beautiful, the view was gorgeous and the owner was more than helpful and accommodating! We played pool, soaked in the hot tub, sat in front of the fire heater with wine, and had a great nights sleep in the huge master bedroom. The house was fully furnished, including dishes, towels, blankets, games etc. We didn't have to worry about a thing! We have already booked another stay at this Perfect Getaway! We definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cozy, relaxing and fun vacation spot!

Wonderful country home just minutes from town!

We loved our stay in this beautiful home! Spacious and meticulously maintained! We felt right at home! Lots of room, nicely furnished and had everything we could possible need! Nancy was great to work with and the whole process was so easy! The house was spotless and did not have any funky smells when we walked in. Loved playing billiards on the pool table, then soaking in the outdoors hot tub after a few cocktails on the deck that overlooked a peaceful creek. The location was so peaceful, but only a few minutes from Chico if we needed anything. Will definitely make plans to stay here again! Thanks for a great weekend!

Perfect Getaway is right on the money

The Perfect Getaway in the Butte Creek Canyon area on the outskirts of Chico is a wonderful place to spend a weekend. My fiancee and I and two of our close friends spent one night there, as we were in town for Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest, and we wished we could've stayed there for a week! The house is in a quaint location, with a gorgeous view of the creek outside, but has any modern amenity you could want. Plus, it's about a 15-minute or-so drive out of town, so balancing a stay with plenty of nature and visiting Chico can be easily done. Nancy was an exceptional host, and is flexible and a great communicator. I would recommend this location and host to anyone who may be staying in Chico or nearby, or just wants a perfect getaway

Paradise

My family really enjoyed swimming in the creek with salmon, trout and minnows as the dragonflies and butterflies danced overhead. 3 huge birds flew overhead all day and we saw two huge swarms of hummingbirds come through the yard. I was even fortunate enough to see a deer cross the creek. It was hot inside without AC but it's super easy to cool off in the creek and who wants to be I side with nature like that anyway. However, if you prefer the indoors there are also more amenities than one could possibly use. The creek is also perfect for rafting and the beautiful honey run bridge is so close it's a must see during your stay. I recommend you wear shoes down to the creek as the ladder was a bit hard on my bare feet. I highly recommend this place to even though I'd prefer to keep this secret amazing spot all to myself. We can't wait to come back and hope that we will be able to soon. It truly was what Nancy calls the perfect getaway

THE PREFECT GATEWAY IN CHICO CALIFORNIA

THE PROPERTY WAS DESCRIBED AS THE "PERFECT GETAWAY" AND IT WAS THAT AND MORE. THE BUTTE CREEK COULD BE SEEN AND HEARD DAILY AND ITS BEAUTY WAS STUNNING. THE SALMON THAT YOU SEE FROM THE DECK WERE OVER 2 FEET LONG. THE HOME HAD ALL THE STUFF WE NEEDED (AND MORE) SO GOING TO THE STORE TO GET 1 ITEM WAS NOT NEEDED. THE HOME AND DECK WERE LARGE SO A LARGE GROUP WOULD FIND IT ACCOMDATING. IT WAS CLEAN AND HAD EVERTHING YOU WOULD NEED FOR YOUR STAY. IF YOUR A HIKER,GOLFER,SITE SEEKER,BOOK READER OR JUST WANT TO SIT AROUND THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. THE DOWNTOWN OF CHICO HAD LOTS OF RESTAURANTS TO CHOOSE FROM AND HAD GOOD REVIEWS. THUMBS ARE HIGH UP ON THE "PERFECT GETEWAY"!

Wonderful space with all you need and more

We enjoyed our stay so much, the property and location are so perfect. It rained the whole time we were there and it was so beautiful and green with amazing little waterfalls on your way up to the house. Would rent again for sure.

Relaxing family get away

The house was really nice and well-maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed in terms of pans etc. The only bad thing was we stayed during a huge storm so we didn't get to enjoy the outdoor area as much as we wanted to. But we would love to come back and try again! This was perfect for our family to spend time together.
