Quincy chateau / country house description

Amazing pond and Gazebo highlight this beautiful forest landscape. The home is close to town (5mi) and High Sierra Festival location (3mi). Outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking, and fishing are moments away, Golf (18mi). The quaint town of Quincy has great restaurants, theaters, shopping. Reno's nightlife is only 80 miles away. The home has all the amenities--even air conditioning--a rarity in Quincy. Celebrate meals with friends and family cooked in a spacious kitchen and hosted in a beautiful dining room. Or, just dine around the massive kitchen island that has been the centerpiece of many holiday buffets. Because all four bedrooms each have private attached bathrooms, four couples could happily share the cost of your stay. The elegant home and beautiful surroundings lend themselves to an unforgettable family holiday or getaway with friends.

                        Paradise in the Pines is the best way to describe this luxurious property in Quincy, CA. What a treat for our family to spend a week in this gorgeous home and property! It is even better in person than all of the photos. From the gourmet (completely stocked) kitchen to the luxurious linens and sound system throughout the house this is truly a rental you just show up with your clothes. The house is the cleanest rental we have ever experienced. We enjoyed the peaceful pond, lawn and surrounding trees. Having grown up in the area it was such a pleasure to go back home and experience the lakes, the town, the fair and come back to a retreat such as the Ellingson's property. Jim and Joanne have excellent communication and really honor and take care of their home. We are already looking at the calendar for when we can make a return trip! Thank you providing a 5 star hotel experience in a small town like Quincy.

                        Owner response: Thank you Kimra. We are so happy that you love our forest retreat as much as we do. It is important to us that our guests feel at home when they visit. We look forward to having your family visit again.

                        Upon arriving at the house, we felt like we were in heaven!! The property surrounding us was the most beautiful, tranquil, serene environment. The landscaping was incredible. Everything inside was perfect. The kitchen was large just the way I like it. While I cooked the kids were able to hang out around the kitchen island the whole time! The fireplaces were amazing and we lit them every night which created the cozy warm environment we desire when out in the woods and wide open spaces!! We took advantage of the jetted jacuzzi bath the first night of our stay while enjoying a bottle of my favorite wine and candies that were waiting for us upon our arrival. We also enjoyed the red and blue flowers for our centerpiece to our Memorial Day BBQ meal. We slept like kings and queens every night and never wanted for anything. Our little yorkie "Tank" was the explorer of the woods (on a leash of course) and couldn't quite figure out those big dogs behind us (the deer) but loved to run and run around the grass near the gazebo and pond. Thank you once again for helping to make our daughter, Allessandra's graduation and our Memorial Day weekend a truly wonderful time!
