Grandpa's Cabin sits on our family property which was purchased by our parents over 60 years ago. The main home on the property was constructed from lumber our parent's salvaged from dismantling Walker Mine north of where Lake Davis currently sits.
Our young father also built Grandpa's Cabin from salvaged lumber in the 1950's for his father, 'Grandpa', so that he could live with the family but still have his own private area. The cabin has been moved over the years, and has recently been remodeled.
If this cabin could only speak, you would be quite entertained by what it could tell you! It was not only our grandfather's home but over the years it has served as a guest house, month-to-month rental, used by one of my brother's to play cards in with his teenage friends, kept our missing dog safe until we noticed his head popping up and down in the window, was home to various family members, and was also home to the LDS missionaries for a time.
Now Grandpa's Cabin will serve the public as a great get-away and convenient place to begin all your adventures in Plumas County. We also have a wonderful apartment available. Ask us for details.
Grandpa's Cabin is clean and furnished, though, to keep the cost down and to make it possible for us to run our full-time business and the rentals, WE PROVIDE BLANKETS, PILLOWS, AND TOWELS; YOU BRING YOUR OWN SHEETS AND PILLOW CASES AND MAKE YOUR OWN BED.
I was born in Portola and raised with my brothers and sister on the property where Grandpa's Cabin is located. I have been married to a great guy for nearly 32 years, have two 'perfect' kids, a great son-in-law, and two very special granddaughters.
After my parents passed away my husband and I decided to purchase the family home and remodel the vacation rental that my mom started many years ago.
While staying at Grandpa's Cabin you have the benefit of close access to Highway 70, easy, very close, access to the popular bike/walking path along the Feather River into town (an easy ride or walk for anyone), a front seat view of the trains passing by on the other side of the river, a very short drive to the Railroad Museum in town, and the benefits of having the Feather River run through the property. There are no fences between you and the river, so you, the kids and dogs have the benefit of exploring the river with no boundaries. A motel room, bed and breakfast, campsite, or RV park will never measure up to what you can have at Grandpa's Cabin!
