51 - Castner's Grand Californian

- -


Welcome to Castner's Grand Californian, where every corner resonates with mountain luxury.

Set at the base of Inspiration Point in Boulder Bay, a short walk will take you to the lake’s shores.

Stepping inside, the towering ceilings paired with a dramatic cascade of windows pull you into an embrace of both opulence and warmth.

Elements of slate, wood, and stone are harmoniously woven together, offering a tactile luxury reminiscent of an upscale mountain retreat.

As you traverse the home, the main living space unfurls under a high vaulted ceiling. A blend of the living room, dining, and kitchen, it promises convivial moments.

A plush leather couch beckons, set before a gas fireplace and a large Smart TV, ensuring entertainment is always at hand.

Meals are an event with a grand wooden dining table, and the kitchen. A chef's delight. From essential gadgets to a six-burner stove with a griddle, culinary adventures await.

Inside, the master suite is nothing short of a retreat. A roaring stone fireplace sets the mood, and the master bathroom, bathed in rich slate, offers a jacuzzi tub to melt away the day's adventures.

The outside beckons with an expansive deck, perfect for any gathering.

Here, you can grill at the BBQ station, gather around the fire pit, or sink into the luxury hot tub, all while drinking in the sublime views that stretch beyond.

A spacious three-car garage ensures all your vehicles and toys have a place.

Note: Castner's Grand Californian is a gem among rentals and is in high demand. Ensure your unforgettable mountain experience by booking your preferred dates in advance.

Very Nice Home

We really enjoyed the home. Well taken care of and a great size for our family (us, our 3 kids and their wives and total of 5 grandchildren). We would rent it again. A few very minor reasons for the 2 items we gave less than 5 stars - 1. the property management company takes longer than necessary for check-in process. We had to completely fill in all the information we had already completed at the time of renting it. They could already have it all in the ipad and just have us verify it and re-sing instead of having to re-enter everybit of the information again and more. 2. The information for check-out was different on the VRBO website and the management company. (one said 11:00am, one said 10:00am). Lastly, there is no airconditioning in the house, however most times it isn't needed and there are 4 good fans for each bedroom; however the weekend we went was a "heat wave" in the area so 1st evening was a little uncomfortable but not bad. The rest of the days were fine with the window open at night and fans on. It's still a great house in great condition and a wonderful place to rent. Thank you.

Grab your friends and family and head to this cabin to make memories!

Plenty of room for multiple families and stocked with games for lots of fun. The kitchen was perfect for making all our meals! Just bring your food! The rest is covered! We have stayed in many air BnBs and by far this was the best communication I have ever had from the host! We can't wait to return!

Absolutely loved this Airbnb!

Perfect spot if you have little ones and a big family. Close walk to the lake and quick drive to the village. Kitchen is perfectly stocked with everything you need to cook. Beautiful home for a family vacation.

This was a great spot for my friends and I.

It was spacious and a great location. We were near a lot of activities during the day and night. Also the ping pong table and jacuzzi were great activities to do on the side. The check in is fairly simple as well and we had no issues. Thank you!

This house was absolutely stunning.

The photos didn't even do it justice because it is beyond beautiful. The house was spacious and luxurious. We came with 4 families, totaling 12 people, and there was plenty of room for us all to feel comfortable. The host was responsive and helpful.

We are satisfied fully.

Don't waste your time looking for something else. This huge house is beautiful, comfy, clean, and has everything any big family needs. The host, Augustine, accommodated us fast, easily, with understanding with our situation when at the last minute we had an emergency. Extremely thankful for being so nice and quick in communication. We had enormous pleasure staying in this house with such a beautiful view; plus, grateful for such a professional approach from the host. Best costumer service, easy check in and out. Will be back again for sure.

Our family enjoyed our stay in Agustin's house.

The house was very spacious and had a lot of games/activities available for the entire family. The living room and the deck were large enough to have the entire family to be hanging out in the same area. The mountain view was a beautiful background when the family was in the jacuzzi and sitting around the fireplace. The house had everything you'd need for cooking/baking/grilling, plenty of towels, and although we only had 3cars, the driveway has enough parking for 5. The house is walking distance from boulder bay park where the lake is at. I loved that the checkout process was so easy and didn't involve ridiculous rules - it helped us just focus on enjoying our mini vacation.
