About Johna

My name is Johna, this is the house I grew up in and also raised my children. I am a Broker/Owner of Sierra Mountain Properties, one of the top producing Real Estate offices in the area. I am a board member of Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce located in Graeagle/Blairsden. My goal is to share this beautiful area with those who are on vacation, and may also want to purchase their own vacation home, land or business here. I know why its called the Lost Sierras, we have such a close proximity to Lake Tahoe and Reno, yet the mountain quiet, wildlife, and historic past has not been diminished by overcrowding.

Johna purchased this house in 1965

Why Johna chose Valley Ranch

This home has passed down through the generations. It was the original summer home for the owner of Mohawk Valley. The cattle are here every summer, without fail. This area is growing, but will never be as busy as Tahoe or Truckee, its our little secret piece of the sierras. There are many hiking and mountain biking trails and lakes within 10 minutes of the house, and for a quick swim at the millpond in Graeagle, that's just 4 miles away. In Graeagle you can enjoy shopping in the old mill town, enjoying a glass of wine at the wine garden, or visit the local brewery. The rates are based on up to 13 guests, no extra cleaning fees.

What makes this house unique

This home offers incredible views of Mohawk Valley and Eureka Peak (where the historic Longboard races are held each winter). The home has two fireplaces, one in the living room and one in the kitchen, hardwood floors, and original pine interior. The dining room table seats ten, did I mention the BABY GRAND PIANO? Although the home was built in the 50's, I have remodeled and upgraded the home specifically for vacation renters in mind. The character of the home is still in tact, with a history in the valley of one of the original homes built in Mohawk Valley.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

Nine ladies who played golf for two days had a delightful time. The hot tub was a nice bonus. Thank you so much.

Great Golf House Rental for 8-12 guys.

  • 5 of 5

We have been doing a golf trip to this area for the amazing golf courses for the past 6 years. This was the first year we expanded from 8 guys to 12 and needed a bigger house for all of us. We could not have been more happy with the selection of the home and all of my friends were thoroughly happy.

The family room and dining area are attached so it was perfect for everyone to congregate after a long day of 36 holes of golf. There are plenty of couches and chairs at the table for everyone to fit, talk about the day, watch the days highlights of college and NFL football, and to play cards at the dining room table.

The front and back patios are awesome to hang out and have a few drinks under the stars. There is a hot tub, which we used every night, but it only really holds 2 people. This was literally the only disappointing aspect of the house. There is also a ping pong table which was a big hit for a few guys.

There is plenty of parking and a huge lawn if you want to play corn hole, washers, or any of your other fun drinking games. If you are there during sunset, I am sure the view is also amazing.

If you are looking for a house that has all the new bells and whistles this is not the place. If you are looking for a cabin style place that is easy to get to anywhere in the area, has all the normal amenities you need, and makes you feel like you are in the mountains....it is perfect. Just the style of place me and my buddies look for every year. Thanks again for a great place.
