GRANDPA BUZZARD'S CABIN AT THE BUZZARD'S ROOST - PLUMAS COUNTY, CA

Portola Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

'Bear-themed' 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 been remodeled, though we kept the original wood flooring.

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. Grandpa Buzzard's Cabin's patio includes rock work that Grandpa did while he was living here.

Now Grandpa's Cabin will serve our customers as a great get-away and convenient place to begin all your adventures in Plumas County. We also have a wonderful apartment available (#314112), and new for 2014, Grandpa's House #562206. Ask us for details.

Grandpa's Cabin is clean and furnished with pretty much everything you need, including kitchen, satellite flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, deck with table and chairs, covered parking, fenced yard/patio with gas BBQ, picnic table, hammock, porch swing, and two places to build camp fires. (All the wood you want provided.) *** July 15, 2014 I lowered the nightly rate by $29 because I am providing all bedding and towels, but I am no longer making the beds.***

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 35 years, have two 'perfect' kids, and two very special granddaughters.

Glenda Herbert purchased this cabin in 2009

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. Your privacy fence is the only fence 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!

Tahoe Couple

  • 4 of 5
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.

Wonderful Space to Relax!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Charming and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
We were in search of a timeout from a hectic schedule and we found that in Grandpa's Cabin. Though it is on the same property with the main house with an upstairs apartment, we felt secluded and had lots of privacy - in fact, we didn't know anyone else was there.. The cabin has a large side yard with a gas grill and fire pit and a front yard area with a double hammock and a high landscaped hill which keeps down road noise. The owners take comments seriously as they implemented each suggestion made here. Guess we arrived a couple of days after the air conditioner. We loved it, everything you need. Hope to do it again.

Had a great tim

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I had a very nice stay at Grandpa's cabin. Though the space is not very large, it was perfect for the two of us. It was a definite bonus that the cabin has a full kitchen and that there is a grill in the patio area outside. Glenda, the property manager, was also extremely easy to work with and was very accommodating when we were looking for a last minute rental.
