Please note: No smoking!

Due to virus, I will only take reservations for a minimum of 2 night stays & a maximum of 2 guests. Also, I will be leaving the home empty for 2 days between guests, I think this will go far in ensuring no virus is alive. Yes I will make less $ but your health & my health are worth it!

No smoking.
Due to creek, no children under 12.areNo pets.

The space
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 bear's!! And there are no grizzly bears in California.

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 as fast as you get in a city but you can usually watch a movie without it buffering.
3) Uninterrupted quiet: In summer the highway noise will be noticeable, mostly during the day hours.

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”.

Hi! I manage, and am a projectionist for, the movie theater here in Quincy. I've lived here for most of my life. My father was a mountain-man at heart and he & my mom brought us here when I was 12. Which means this small piece of earth has been in my family for over 50 years! Like my father I'm keen on the outdoors and enjoy hiking, biking and camping. More like my mother: I think a good book is an amazing piece of art. A good book makes me very happy. :)
