Photos and Description of the Keddie vacation house rental

1700 sqft Moderate size home, 2 bath, Amazing river front patios.

A Family paradise at 3225 feet elevation nestled in the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains! Located just seven miles from the Plumas county seat of Quincy, California. Here is where you will find this lovely home on the banks of Spanish Creek. Situated just below the historic old resort, mining community, and railroad town of Keddie. Positioned within viewing distance from our home is one of the seven wonders of the Western Pacific Railroad, the famous wye bridge trestle. The “Wye” and town were named for Arthur Keddie. Keddie was an engineer who pioneered and surveyed the route for the railroad through the Feather River back in 1909.

Fast forward to the 1960s when Keddie was being transformed into a resort by realtor Clarence Arthur English Jr. who had purchased the town in ’57 with the goal of making it into a first class resort destination. One of the features that Mr. English developed was the “Swimmin Hole’ which were a series of stone stairs leading down to patios and built in stone barbecue pits on the banks of Spanish Creek.

More than 50 years later the beautiful rock work and patios still exist and in fact have been reborn for today’s generation of families. This wonderful setting with its modest home is available now to be enjoyed by young and old alike.

The home is a fully equipped, modern, and cheerful. It boasts three private sleeping areas. The master bedroom has a large closet, a queen bed, and it's own private bath. The large master bath includes a beautiful claw foot tub for relaxing, a separate private room with a large modern stand-up shower. Another sleeping room offers a double bed with antique dressers for storage. This room also has its own door into a full bath. The front of the house has another sleeping room that is ideal for children. It currently has a futon and a large blow up Aero Bed is available. Off this room is the laundry with a washer and dryer and storage area.

The home has a fully stocked modern kitchen with refrigerator/freezer, cook top, double ovens and a dishwasher. The counter area also claims two high backed stools to accommodate seating at the kitchen counter.

Off the kitchen is a sitting area for relaxing and enjoying the pictures and history of Keddie Resort in its heyday of the 1960s. Oh and the sofa is also a sleeper that can be made to sleep two additional adults or children as the need might arise.

The dinning area has seating for six, while the living area has a large sofa and love seat just right for viewing the hi-definition large screen television that is artfully hidden when not in use in the large decorative wall cabinet and book case.

Out the French doors by the kitchen and sitting area is a covered porch that spans the entire length of the house. Seating is not a problem in the numerous chairs, the outside bar, and bar stools that adorn the porch.
