About Jeff Ellermeyer

Hello, thank you for taking the time to check out our property for your special visit to Plumas County California.

Jeff and I are on our third season as vacation and business property hosts and really love providing a memorable stay for our guests. This is our first year on HomeAway. (2018)

Jeff is a semi retired licensed plumber and I have an interest in remodeling and decorating homes. I am an artist, a gardener and enjoy the hospitality industry. Jeff's hobbies include playing the acoustic guitar and traveling.

Jeff Ellermeyer purchased this house in 2015

Why Jeff Ellermeyer chose Keddie

Jeff and I purchased this property in the Summer of 2016 for the purpose of using it for a vacation rental. Our area does not provide adequate spaces for families or multiple couples who would like to stay together to enjoy our beautiful area. The property is approximately 100 years old. The original part of the cabin is the living room and kitchen area and is built out of 6 inch by 6 inch stacked, pecky cedar. Most likely used as a mining cabin. Located one mile East of the infamous Keddie where the trains stop, switched tracks or get maintenance.

One of the previous, long time owners planted raised garden beds, an apple tree and a plum tree. We are now working on restoring the landscaping, restoring the grass, raised beds, adding fruit trees, grapes and various herbs.

We enjoy our wildlife when we visit the property including migrant birds, Bald Eagles, White Tail Deer, ground squirrels and butterflies.

What makes this house unique

Jeff and I chose this property for the location an the swimming hole on Spanish Creek. The property is not too large and just private enough within close driving distance to Quincy. We felt this would make a great stay for families to have memorable vacation moments in the mountains.

Contemporary, rustic updated cabin nestled in the forest.

Perfect piece of Paradise ❤️

  • 4 of 5

This property was rented for a family vacation. nine of us comfortably Enjoyed the spacious bedrooms bathrooms and private backyard. Three of the nine guess where my grandchildren ages 12 10 and four. The owners were very accommodating to all of our needs. They surprised me with the birthday cake wine and Popsicles for my grandkids. Really was a special touch that was unexpected .

I will be going back to this property again and again. I miss it already 🐸?Thank you again for a wonderful memorable family vacation. Check off on my bucket list👏?
