GRANDPA BUZZARD'S CABIN - VACATION RENTAL - PLUMAS COUNTY, CA

Portola Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1br/1ba sleeps 2

Grandpa Buzzard'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 Buzzard'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, The Buzzard's Loft, and new for 2014, The Buzzard's House available. Ask us for details.

Grandpa Buzzard's Cabin is clean and furnished with everything you need.

I was born in Portola and raised with my brothers and sister on the property where Grandpa Buzzard's Cabin is located. I have been married to a great guy for 35 years, have two 'perfect' kids, 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 Buzzard'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 Buzzard's Cabin!

We found Grandpa's cabin to be charming, clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could need. We really enjoyed the bike path walk along the river. We were in need of a quiet get away after a busy summer at Tahoe. We found just that! Glenda was super nice and helpful. We will definitely come again and reccomend it to others.

We Were Very Comfortable

We had a great time here. The Grandpa's Cabin was enough room for my husband and I. Great use of space; we were very comfortable. Thank you for heating the place prior to our arrival. The temperature with the heater we thought remained comfortable. We would love to return when we are in the area again. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

Wonderful Space to Relax!

The cabin had everything I could have wanted and the outdoor space made it seem like we could have brought the whole family! Really a lovely and quiet setting with a river walk to town just about 1/2 a block down the road! The bed was the most comfortable that we encountered on our whole trip! I also very much appreciated the power strips at the side of the bed. With all the things we travel with it was a delight not to have to get down on our hands and knees to find outlets to hook up our cpap machines and charge our other gadgets! So thoughtful! The transaction was delightful and the stay very restful and productive. We will stay again if we get back up there! Thanks again!

Loved our stay! Everything was perfect! We will be back next year! What a beautiful place to live! Grandpa's Cabin had everything we could possibly need...including elbow room outside.

Loved it!
