About Carol or Boya Faust
This was our family vacation home and when my parents passed away we were already in the vacation rental business and wanted to share this special place with family friends and guests. I have always thought of Westwood as a fishing dream destination as I have spent so many hours chasing the trout here.
Carol or Boya Faust purchased this House in 1952
Why Carol or Boya Faust chose Westwood
A Town is Born Here in the heart of the wilderness Where wildlife roamed at will Amid primeval forest Where even time stood still, Where rushing rivers downward dashed Through meadows green with waving grass Snowy peaks towered to the skies Amid smiling lakes that watched closeby. Where the trees talked to the stars at night And the moon looked down and smiled. Where the breeze whispered secrets And the lakes extend for miles. Into this place of towering pines Where natures voise excelled all chimes Came man with ax and saw and blade And out of this land so fair and free a town was born for you and me. In the heart of the Sierras You will find it nestled there The little town of Westwood with traditions quaint and rare. As years go by and times holds sway its houses may fall into decay, It's people may leave for parts unknown The years and streets may be overgrown Even the breeze may seem to sigh with memories of the days gone by. But in our hearts and in our minds there will always be a Westwood There among the pines. By Ethel Hurd (recorded in 1949)

Just like granny’s house (or my Aunt Effie’s house) in Alabama
We enjoyed our stay very much. If you’re expecting a luxury vacation this isn’t the place for you, but if you grew up or had family you stayed with in the country and you like quaint, comfy, antique-type old style furniture this may be the place for you. The neighborhood is older and parts of It are in poor shape, but our area was very quiet and the neighbors we met were very friendly. Lake Almanor is only 6 miles or so away—and my husband caught his biggest rainbow trout ever, 6 lbs plus (he did catch and release so it’s still there to grow and be caught again...) on our first day out. Exciting for us both! I’ve not spent time at Lake Almanor and now that I have I know why my husband loves the area so much—it’s absolutely some of the best of God’s country, gorgeous! We will be back! Oh, and did I mention the price us right?
Everything was spot on exactly as advertised! We had a very comfortable stay!!!
Loved this place!
We absolutely loved staying at 207 Cedar Street in Westwood, CA! It was completely equipped with everything you could want or need. Thanks to the Fausts for creating such a wonderful property!
Thank you so much we always really appreciate when I guess take the time to leave us a great review it helps
A warm and comfy house that invites memories of grandma.
We highly recommend this neat, clean, spacious cottage. The yard had lots of romping room for our basset hounds and Carol and her husband are kind, wonderful folks who go the extra mile to make sure your stay is a comfortable one. Westwood is full of friendly, smiling people who don't hesitate to point visitors in the right direction. We will definitely be staying here again.
Charming cottage with easy access to outdoor recreation opportunities
This is a charming and rustic cottage that is nicely furnished and has a large outdoor patio. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances you could need to cook up some great meals on your vacation. If you don't feel like cooking, there is also a great restaurant, Buffalo Chips, within walking distance (try the wings!). The landlord was friendly and easy to work with and the neighbors were also nice and helpful. The surrounding area is an outdoor paradise, where the Sierra Nevada and Cascade ranges meet. The rental is a great jumping off point to explore the Caribou Wilderness, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Lake Almanor and other nearby areas.
We were so pleased with this two month rental from the BLM workers and would welcome you back anytime thanks for taking the time to write the review
A cozy, small town experience in the mountains.
We had a relaxing 5 day stay here...fishing at numerous nearby sites , relaxing on the new spacious deck, and even got in a little target shooting at the gun range.
The small town environment is especially what we like when traveling. I like to cook, and the kitchen has all I needed.
We will definitely return!
Located between Chester and Susanville this historic old lumber town has numerous places to explore both in town and surrounding area. The local museum, the loacl honey mead operation, the Bizz Johnson trail head, the layout of the streets each named after a tree type. fishing areas are all around you. HIking, and exploring the beautiful lakes, streams etc.

A very interesting experience to walk through in total darkness.
