The Butte Creek Escape


The Butte Creek Escape


Butte Creek in the summer, Campfires in the Winter, 95 acres of Chico State Ecological Preserve to explore year-round! Our Getaway is modern, industrial, and comfortable. It is an amazing place to rest for a weekend or a week & only 5 min to all services in Chico.

There are 2 units on property: one is leased full-time. Please do not disturb your new neighbor. Our lot is 1.25 acres. The Getaway is comparable to a "all-suite hotel room". It is approximately 400sqft. There is a fully furnished modern kitchen, beautiful bathroom, full-sized bed (and inflatable full-sized bed) and an expansive outdoor space capped off with an outdoor shower. Being that this is a "Getaway" for our family and friends, there is no TV, internet or land-line phone. There is spotty cell phone reception, though, depending upon your carrier. We have a Bluetooth speaker system, various board games, a few books and magazines, an outdoor fire pit, and of course 95 acres for our guests to enjoy.

Our getaway is in a very safe area of homeowners who respect each others privacy, but also keep alert for any trouble or disturbance. Our getaway is in one of the most beautiful and coveted locations in northern California. It is nestled in a canyon with an incredible creek flowing through.

This was our second visit and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Easy access to Chico, yet you feel as if you are so far away from the city. The place is clean and well equipped, the bed is very comfortable and the outdoor shower is wonderful. No wifi or phone, but we really enjoyed being "unplugged" in the evenings. Beautiful setting!!

We had a great stay and loved the location and the guest house!

We loved it! Spotless little house which is right on some lovely walking trails. We would definitely return. Great star-gazing at night. Only caveat: no blow dryer! (Found one cheap at CVS.) Thank you for a great time. Ed and Sandi Smith and Rapunzel (labradoodle)

We had a great time there, however, no oven or much kitchen gear (mixing bowls, salad bowls, measuring cups, ziplock bags, aluminum foil for the grill) so if you cook, bring your own stuff. My dietary restrictions mean that I have to cook (no eating out) so this is important to me. Ask the owners for contact info (theirs, local emergency #s) before you stay there, as there is none posted at the cabin. Also it is right on a busy road, which is loud but when you walk down to the water, it's heavenly. The cabin is beautiful, simple, and the kids loved the outdoor shower! Bed was very comfortable and plenty of towels. . . we had the water shut off during our stay but the owners were very quick to respond and take care of it. Very nice folks.

Nice comfortable bed. Clean bathroom with good shower. Quiet. The owner with which we communicated (Chad) was responsive and kind. It is advertised as a smaller home but feels spacious inside. There is plenty of room. Nice place.

We loved the decor and overall feel of the cabin. The location is great and we really enjoyed the trails nearby.

Chad has done a wonderful job with a mother-in-law type home on property outside of Chico. Very clean and functional. Gave us a chance to take in the stars away from the city. Chad was very responsive and went out of his way after a minor miscommunication with cleaning staff.

We were looking for an alternative to the chain hotels in Chico and this place fit the bill. The cabin is cozy and has a nice clean, modern feel. The location is close to Chico yet you feel that you are in the back country will trails right outside. The outdoor shower is a great bonus.

It was great to get away from the internet and play cards and a board game with our daughter. We also enjoyed Chico's cafes and restaurants, and found a beautiful, calm place in the river to cool off. The place has nice finishes, and we all liked the outdoor shower! Small, but very pretty!

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay at the Butte Creek Getaway. The house is very clean and modern and had everything we needed. We loved how close the creek was to play in. I would definitely recommend this place.
