The Buzzard's Loft Apartment is an awesome one bedroom second level apartment with deck overlooking the Feather River, just outside of town. Landing bridge through the pine trees leads to the apartment. Has a very comfortable thick memory foam bed for your enjoyment and relaxation, and two Satellite flat-screen TVs. Also, free Wi-Fi available. The Buzzard's Loft is part of our old family home built by our parents over 60 years ago from lumber they salvaged as young adults dismantling Walker Mine, which was located north of Lake Davis.
***Newly finished (September 26, 2014) beautiful terrace for your enjoyment. Includes huge custom-built bench, above ground fire pit, picnic tables, chairs, sitting walls, and newly planted miniature, partially fenced, grove. Enjoy this beautiful terrace, which overlooks the Feather River with a view of Mount Elwell in the distance.***
The Buzzard's Roost Vacation Rentals sit on the Feather River; a great place for kids and dogs to explore. There are no fences between you and the river, so you have the ability to roam wherever you want!
If you're a train buff, the railroad tracks are up on the hill across the river. You have front row seats to watch the excitement that the trains bring to this area. As kids we grew up watching the trains and waving to them. The Railroad Museum is just a short drive into town.
Very easy access from the top of the driveway to the bike/walking path that leads into town. It is an easy walk or ride for anyone.
The Buzzard's Loft Apartment is clean and furnished with everything you need to enjoy your stay. ***July 15, 2014 I lowered the nightly rate by $29. I provide all the bedding (sheets, blankets, bedspread, pillows) and towels, but my customers make the beds***
The Buzzard's Roost Vacation Rentals are conveniently located, giving easy access to the many desirable destinations in this area while offering you the privacy and relaxation that you just can't get in a motel room, bed and breakfast, campsite, or RV space. We also have a very cute cabin available see #314548, and new for 2014 The Buzzard's House #562206, which is absolutely wonderful! Contact us for details.

About the owner: I was born in Portola and raised with my two older brothers and sister on the property which is now 'The Buzzard's Roost.' I have been married to a great guy for almost 37 years and have two 'perfect' kids, a great son-in-law, and two wonderful granddaughters.
Why the Owner Chose Portola: Years ago, my mom originally started and named 'The Buzzard's Roost' and after my parent's deaths we decided to purchase the family home and remodel 'The Buzzard's Roost' and get it going again.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: 'The Buzzard's Roost' is close to Highway 70 for easy access to all your destinations, but is also private with all the benefits of being on the Feather River.
