Property description

Emerald Point is an ideal getaway cabin in the quiet of the mountains. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a gated community the setting is quiet and private but still connected with phone, satellite TV, and the internet.

The house features a master suite with a Cal King Bed, jetted tub, double sinks, oversized shower, walk-in closet, and private deck. The second suite features a queen bed, with adjoining bath and the third bedroom has two twin beds and can share the queen suite bath or use the half bathroom. A den can also be used for overflow and has a sofa and mattress for unexpected guests. All rooms features generous closets.

The cabin features a single story with high cathedral ceilings and an open floor plan accommodating six in a casual style. The spacious kitchen is open to the dining and living area with easy access to the large deck perched in the trees with views down the ravine and a large gas grill. The living area is centered around an inset wood burning fireplace which keeps the main space beautifully warm in the winter.

The house also features an oversized two car garage and sunny laundry room so you can bring fewer suitcases for your getaway.

Walking from the house you can explore the groomed Gold Mountain trails or the logging roads in the forest where you can hike down to the Feather River to enjoy fishing for trout, bird watching or just an afternoon in nature. There are a couple of bikes available as well as horseshoes, frisbies and assorted balls.

Car: Necessary

Located ten minutes from Graeagle and ten minutes from Portola, the house is ideally located for hiking, fishing and golf in the summer and snowshoeing, tubing, and cross country skiing in the winter.

Walk out the door and stroll along the Nakoma golf course or fish in the Feather River. The area is an outdoor paradise with six other local golf courses, numerous water falls and lakes including Gold Lake and Lake Davis just a few minutes drive away. Situated at 4800 foot elevation the cabin is also ideally suited for hiking and biking with numerous mapped trails nearby. In winter now shoeing and tubing are available at the resort.

If you don't feel like cooking the area supports many restaurants located on the resort or in the adjacent towns of Graeagle, Blairsden and Portola.

Portola has a fully staffed hospital open 24/7 with the capability of air transport to Reno.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: The house is as eclectic as the owners from El Salvador and New England. A little latin and rustic tradition blended together. We currently live in the Sacramento area but find time to get away to the quiet of the sierra's with its crisp air and clear skies.

Why the Owner Chose Valley Ranch, CA, USA:
We loved the relaxing quality of the area and enjoyed many weekends before purchasing. If you like to hike, bike, cross country, fish, golf, or just enjoy the quiet, you'll love this retreat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The one element that separates this place is the feeling when you're there that you are perched at the edge of the forest on the boundary with nature.
