    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    This classic mountain cabin, which we have named 'Mt. Elwell,' is located at the edge of the northern Sierra Nevada's Mohawk Valley, just a few miles outside of Graeagle/Blairsden. Mt. Elwell is one of a cluster of cabins that were part of the lumber mill known as the Penman Peak Lumber Company that was established in the mid-1920's. With nearly a mile of the National Wild and Scenic River, the Middle Fork of the Feather winds through our 40 acres and can be viewed from the private back deck. Make sure to bring your fishing pole, as this stretch of the river is known for its action! Perfect for families and small groups, this is a great place to unplug, unwind and relax, while experiencing a taste of a bygone era.

    The river may be accessed in minutes by an intermedi...

The lodge was a true joy for us. It had all the amenities stocked that we wanted and more than we expected. Next time we can pack less for sure. The stroll to the Feather River was a joy. We found the time on the River energizing. The habitat is so full of life that the field guides we brought...

The Silvers have thought of everything needed to make our stay in the cabin a breeze. The kitchen has everything needed for food preparation that many vacation... more

We selected this property to get away from it all and it was a great choice! There is no TV or internet and that's what we wanted! We brought our mountain bikes, fishing poles and a few books to read. We were in heaven for the four nights that we stayed there. The owners are great and met us there... more
