The space
Cull Castle is a truly magical location that manages to both be rural and unplugged, without actually being that far from every modern amenity! We are less than 5 miles off hwy 70, 10 mins from town of Portola.

Hosts live in the main house above and lovingly remodeled the 600+ sq ft walk-in basement in spring 2021 to provide a comfortable, clean space, whether guests would like to unwind and relax in the pines and enjoy the property and adjacent Plumas National Forest, or use it as a jumping point for the mountain (pun unintended) of other activities in Plumas County.

Forget the pet sitter, and bring the four-legged family members along for the trip - well behaved pets (+ kids) are welcome.

- Private entry from the street

- Ideal for couples (plus one), trios of travelers (up to 4 guests), or small families

- Bedroom with comfy queen bed and large in-suite bathroom with shower/tub

- Single bed in the living area; an alternate layout with a second single bed in the living area is available upon request + small fee ($15/trip)

As avid travelers + AirBNB guests ourselves, we understand that each trip and person's preference for 'social time' varies, and want to respect our guests' preferences for interactions - whether that's to pull up a chair and chat, or see as little of us as possible after check in, just let us know!

Looking for something a little bigger? Check out our other listing, the Portola Quail Cabin, just up the street: airbnb .com/h/PortolaQuailCabin

Where you’ll be

Portola, California, United States

Crocker Mountain Estates was established around the same time as Lake Davis in the late 1960's... by host Lynda's grandparents! It is by lucky timing that we've returned to this hidden gem after 60 years of no formal connection. This quaint subdivision is set onto the side of the mountain, so every lot has a stunning view all around and is the perfect ratio of neighbors to forest. The neighborhood is technically within the Plumas National Forest and across the street from CA state game refuge, so many neighbors are wildlife. Only 1.5 miles from Lake Davis dam and less than 10 minutes to Portola/hwy 70.

My wife Lynda and I love California, and we love to travel using Airbnb ourselves! We moved to our dream home in Plumas county, CA with our 3 cats and bird in 2020 after living in San Diego for 10 and 5 years, respectively. Lynda is a Nor CA native, and Cris has lived all over the US after immigrating from Chile.
