This classic mountain cabin, which we have named "Little Feather," is located at the edge of the northern Sierra Nevada's Mohawk Valley. Little Feather is one of a cluster of six cabins that were part of the Penman Peak Lumber Mill established in the mid-1920's. This sweet cabin is located on our 40 acres, with nearly a mile of the Feather River winding through it. Located along scenic Highway 70, the property is surrounded by U.S. Forest Service land and to add a nostalgic reminder of our industrial age in transition, the Western Pacific railway snakes along the river the length of the property. This is a great place to unplug, unwind and relax. The cabin and property are approximately 3 miles outside of Graeagle, 60 miles from Reno, and 50 miles north of Truckee. The cabin and property are available for vacation getaways, family reunions, and is also a unique retreat and workshop location.*
This beautiful property has trails for hiking and snowshoeing, with wonderful views of the river and mountain peaks. Nature study, swimming and fishing are favorite activities. A riverside trail is currently being created, with Adirondack chairs and hammocks placed along the way for riverside relaxing (season permitting). One of our viewing sites has a fire pit for your use.
The river can be accessed by an intermediate trail from the cabin, or by dirt road for those less ambulatory.
This cabin is a taste of a bygone era! The cabin has warm knotty pine paneling, a queen-size bed, and the bathroom has an antique claw foot bathtub and shower. There is a futon couch in the living room that can be converted into a double bed if needed. The cabin is ideal for 2 guests, but we will consider up to 4 after checking with us, additional fees will apply. It has a fully equipped kitchen, complete with refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, blender and full-size electric range. We provide linens, towels, and basic kitchen supplies (paper towel, foil, plastic wrap, coffee filters, etc.)
The cabin is heated by wood stove, propane wall heater, and electric space heaters. We provide some firewood and kindling for your use during the colder months. More can be purchased at the local Ace Hardware in Blairsden.
