After a long day of helping our Chico State student son move from one house to another, my wife and I were ready to put our feet up. The Butte Creek cabin was just what the doctor ordered! Hard to believe how close to town you actually are and yet surrounded by beautiful canyon views and a picturesque running creek just a 5 minute walk from your doorstep. Inside it is very nicely decorated and has everything you need, full kitchen, great bathroom, new big barbecue outside. (no tv, phone, wifi but it was actually nice to 'unplug') There was a small Sony blue tooth stereo system that I hooked my Ipod into that gave off surprisingly high quality sound! I'm gonna buy one! After a few trips up to the school you discover it can get quite hectic in town on big weekends. To have the ability to basically be 'glamping' without packing a thing and still be just 3 miles further than the hotels is unreal! From Sierra Nevada Brewery and Restaurant to the front door took us 12 minutes! The owners seem to have built it with the environment in mind. All electrical is solar powered. The outdoor shower was a treat as well. (The inside one is like something you'd see in an upscale spa!) I feel we were lucky to find this hidden gem and fear there will probably be a waiting list the next time we are heading up! Thanks so much to the owners for sharing this great place with us, we'll definitely rent again if available!
