Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This charming cabin is situated on 40 acres, which has almost a mile of the middle fork of the National Wild and Scenic Feather River running through it. The cabin has knotty pine paneling, and a peaceful nostalgic ambiance; a taste of a bygone era!

The space
This classic 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 cabins that were part of the Penman Peak Lumber Company established in the mid-1920's. The property was a site of a working lumber mill up until the mid-1940’s. Located off of scenic Highway 70, we are 1 hour west from Reno, 50 miles north of Truckee, and 2.5 hours from the Sacramento area. This is a great place to unplug, unwind and relax. The cabin sleeps 2 comfortably. Check with us if you want to include up to 2 additional guests (double futon couch in living room). Additional fees will apply.

There is no need to bring bottled water. The property boasts pure mountain well water! Fill your water bottles before you depart.

The cabin and property are available for vacation get-aways, family reunions, and also a unique retreat and workshop location.*

*Retreat/Workshops: We have a 30’ yurt, two 16' yurts, and a ceremonial circle available for workshops and retreats, which can accommodate up to 50+ people. Folding chairs and tables are available. There are also 3 additional cabins available adjacent to Little Feather, Cabin No. 5 – “Mt. Elwell,” which can sleep up to 8 guests, and "Mt. Washington," Cabin No. 4 - which can sleep up to 6 guests. Talk to us for more information. You can also click on my host picture/badge to explore our other 3 listings.

Well-behaved dogs are considered. There is a $40 flat rate fee per dog, and due to the small size of this cabin, would like to limit to 1. Please talk to us first!

Guest access
RIVER ACCESS
The river may be accessed by a drivable/walkable dirt road and there is also an “intermediate” trail from the cabin to the river. For the trail, face the river from the deck; walk on the path to the left of Cabin No. 5 and look for the rocks marking the trailhead that winds down the ravine. At the bottom of the hill look for the “white chairs” towards the end of the trail, access to the river is just beyond the chairs to the right, through a tunnel/culvert. It is only about a five minute walk.
The unpaved road is located through the gate to the left of our house (main “modern” house). Follow the road down the hill and turn right after the garden area. Drive past the yurt and turn right when you reach the railroad tracks, parking across from the “white chairs.” Access to the river is just beyond the chairs following a trail under the railroad tracks through a tunnel/culvert. Let me know if you want me to point you in the right direction. Accessing the river across the railroad tracks is at your own risk and is considered trespassing by Union Pacific. Please use the tunnel.
A riverside trail is currently being created, with Adirondack chairs placed along the way for riverside relaxing. A couple of our viewing sites has a fire pit for your use, along with hammocks. (Seasonal) Excluding the private cabins, guests have access to most of the property.

Other things to note
Pet Policy:
Because of the small size of this cabin, friendly pets will be accepted on a case by case basis. We prefer to limit to 1 dog. We charge an additional flat rate of $40 per pet that is payable upon your arrival, unless other arrangements have been made. We ask that you use a sheet to cover the furniture if your dog is used to lounging on the couch. Pets are NOT allowed on the bed. Dogs must be kept on leash until out in the open area away from the cabins. Please pick up after your pet.
Wi-Fi:
There is no landline phone or wireless internet provided. We use hotspots on our iPhones to access the internet. Verizon appears to have better service than AT&T. There is Wi-Fi at “The Graeagle Outpost” next to the Graeagle Market and Mill Pond area. We hope to have high speed internet in the future as it becomes available in our rural area.

We have a 22" Weber Charcoal grill for your use.

There is a "No Shoe" policy - so rock your sox, or your slippers!

The cabin is part of the old Penman Peak Lumber Company. The six cabins were built in the 1930's and 40's. The site is reminicient of an old fashioned Forest Service Camp! The cabins are situated on a bluff above the river, with private access to the Feather River. 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.

The Silver Family lived in the Tahoe Truckee area for 26 years. In 2012 we acquired 40 acres in Plumas County, located near Graeagle, California on the National Wild and Scenic Feather River. The Graeagle area was our first home as a young married couple in 1979. We moved back full time in August of 2013. It's great to be back! Rich is a retired CA state park ranger, with one of our first assignments as newlyweds being Plumas-Eureka State Park in Johnsville, which is how we discovered this beautiful area. I worked as a paralegal in the Truckee area for 23 years. We have raised our family of four sons in the outdoors, and we continue to make nature and beautiful landscapes a priority in our lives. We have reserved four of the several 1930 vintage cabins, which were once part of the Penman Peak Lumber Company, as vacation rentals and a unique space for workshops, gatherings, etc. It is a beautiful spot, and we look forward to sharing it with you!

During your stay
We live on the property, so we are usually available to assist if needed. We have guests "self-check-in," but are happy to meet if we are available to acquaint them with the cabin and the property if requested. We can also answer any questions regarding the Graeagle area. There is a manual in the cabin with information about the cabin itself, local dining, hiking, biking routes, etc. But we encourage you to research the area on the internet too.
