I chose this place like almost all accomodations I choose, based on other reviews here on tripadvisor. If it weren't for that, I never would've found it and chosen it. Their website needs a major redo, as you can't tell a heck of a lot from it, and I hate talking on the phone, so if it weren't for the positive reviews, I wouldn't have followed through once I saw there were no online reservations. I also never received any type of confirmation of the reservation at all. Neither email nor snail mail. I doublechecked the day before and all was ok. Basically, there is nothing wrong with any of this, it's just that it's sort of a throwback to a different era: pre-internet, and I think to stay current, they should try to increase their web use a little. That being said, the place was apparently completely redone in 2007 and it looks like it could've been done yesterday. Everything looks very new and clean, and I enjoyed their moose theme. Nice headboards on the bed with moose and pine trees on them, etc. There was sort of a generic spa-feeling type picture on the wall in the bathroom though- I would think they should keep more with their theme and have a moose standing by a lake, or a photo involving a water feature in Lassen. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to nitpick your decor, just offer an opinion on how to bump it up to 5 stars. :) We also found it a little weird that there were no towel racks- towels were artfully arranged in a pot on the floor which was cool, but we don't mind reusing towels to be more green- and I would've liked someplace good to hang them to reuse them. Besides those little suggestions to make the place even better, I really did like the place, and the owner happened to be there while we were, and he was very friendly and nice to talk to. It was nice being in "downtown" Chester where we could drive across the street each day for a good breakfast at the Copper Kettle ( I think that was the name of it...) and we were also only about 20-30 minutes from the southwest entrance to Lassen. Would definitely stay here again. Great price too- $80/night.
