July 14 - 21 AVAILABLE- all of week or part of week!!! Combie Cottage is a four-bedroom cottage, situated beside a beautiful 450-acre lake in the Sierra Nevada foothills of northern California. The lake is surrounded by tall pines and majestic oaks. Rest and relax in a most peaceful setting, and let your cares melt away. Enjoy all manner of water sports ( power boating, water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, ), hiking, fishing, winter skiing, and nearby golfing. Feed the Canadian geese, or watch the deer.
The home, recently remodeled in 2015, provides a fully self-contained vacation retreat that is perfect for couples, families, and small groups of friends. The cottage has a large front deck overlooking the lake with a large picnic table, charcoal barbecue, fire pit (great for marshmallow roasting!), and comfortable deck furniture. There is also a wonderful swing located underneath the pines at water's edge. Guests may use free of charge the canoe, kayaks, paddle boat, and small fishing boat ( you bring the trolling motor) provided to explore Lake Combie, or they are welcome to bring their own watercraft between April and mid September since there is a launch ramp and floating dock on the property. Combie Cottage, although tucked away in the beautiful Bear River Wilderness Area, is not isolated and requires only a five minute drive to reach the Lake of the Pines Shopping Center which features restaurants, markets, specialty shops, and med clinic. There is even a nearby Starbucks! Also, only moments away, is the well regarded Dark Horse Public Golf Course.
There is so much to enjoy while staying on Lake Combie and the charming home offers a wonderful sense of ambiance and tranquility during any season. The cottage is offered with a 2/3 nt. minimum from September through May and may be used on a weekly basis from June through August.
Fully self contained and accessible!: Feel free to contact the owner who can answer any question.
