Creekside is located in the Sierra Nevadas, along Highway 70. It is 2.5 miles from East Quincy and 6 miles from downtown Quincy. I think you will find the home a welcoming place to relax. This home, where I grew up, is surrounded by the Plumas National Forest. And it is actually one of the most economical places to stay in town, for this is a town where a spartan motel room costs about $85.
WHAT CREEKSIDE HAS: A friendly creek that runs year-round and also runs right past your back deck. It has deer and foxes and turkeys and squirrels and wonderful songbirds and, yes, there’s even a chance you’ll see a California black bear but, in fact, it isn’t likely. In the 6 years I’ve been hosting, only 1 guest has seen a bear. I want you to know it’s possible but unlikely, in case you’re fearful. FYI: A California black bear’s behavioral traits are NOTHING like a grizzly bears.
WHAT CREEKSIDE DOES NOT HAVE: These are stumbling blocks for some guests, so I want to be clear:
1) It doesn’t have television reception.
2) The internet is not unlimited. By this I mean, there is a data cap. If this worries you, we can discuss how the cap works and what it means as far as being online. Basically it means that video streaming is unavailable.
I very much enjoy hosting and would enjoy hosting you! I just want all potential guests to be aware of the two technological disadvantages of my little spot of heaven. I hope to have the internet cap lifted but the electric company has been promising that it would happen for 4 years now. Every time I call they say, “We hope it will happen in the next 5 or 6 months.”
So, for your entertainment there are games to play and there are movies to watch on the dvd player and there is a creek to sooth you and animals to look for. I hope that’s enough for you to choose to stay “Creekside”.
