This delightful cabin is situated on 40 acres, which has almost a mile of the middle fork of the National Wild and Scenic Feather River running through it. Views of the Feather River can be seen from the back deck and master bedroom, along with many wonderful places to view the mountain peaks, Feather River and the local wildlife. Enjoy the private trail and access to the river. Located along scenic Highway 70, the property is surrounded by U.S. Forest Service land and to add a nostalgic reminder of our industrial age in transition, the Western Pacific railway snakes along the river the length of the property. The cabin was built in the 1930's and has a peaceful nostalgic ambiance; truly a taste of a bygone era! We are 1 hour west from Reno (& the Reno National Airport), 50 miles North of Truckee, and about 2.5 hours from Sacramento.
We have have named this cabin "Mt. Washington" after one of the local peaks, and is one of a cluster of cabins that were part of the old Penman Peak Lumber Company established in 1925. The cabins have a lot of nostalgic ambiance that is fun to experience. We offer 3 of our cabins as vacation rentals. There are common areas for our guests to enjoy including sitting areas at the river, on the bluff above the river, and a new gathering area with fire pit. These cabins are not your typical Graeagle golf course rental. All the cabins boast pure mountain well water, so no need to bring bottled water!
This is a wonderful place to unplug, unwind and relax. The cabins and property are available for vacation getaways, and are perfect for family reunions, a unique workshop/retreat location, and we will be hosting weddings in the future.*
*Retreat/Workshops/Ceremonies: We have a 30' yurt, a ceremony site, and common areas available for workshops, retreats and ceremonies. Folding chairs and tables are available. There are also additional cabins available adjacent to Mt. Washington, Cabin No. 5 - "Mt. Elwell," which can sleep up to 8 guests, and Cabin No. 6 - "Little Feather," which sleeps 2 guests (with a fold-out futon couch for 2 more if necessary). Talk to us for more information.
The river may be accessed by driveable/walkable dirt road and there is also an "intermediate" trail from the cabin to the river. It is about a 5 minute walk.
