About Ember English
I am a long time resident of Alaska, but Plumas County, Quincy, and especially Keddie has always held a special place in my heart. I moved to Keddie from Los Angeles as a boy. I visited Keddie a few summers while my father was transforming Keddie into a wonderful resort. I finally moved to Keddie with my mother and my siblings and attended my last four years at Quincy Junior Senior High School. Soon after I enlisted in the Army. I was eventually sent to Alaska where I have resided since..
Ember English purchased this House in 2013
Why Ember English chose Keddie
Keddie always was extraordinary to me. As a teen I worked for my father and his strong-willed foreman Charlie whom both tried to instill some semblance of a work ethic in me. During my last summer before my senior year in high school I worked loading rock, carrying rock and setting rock. Much of that work was at this site that at the time was Keddie's "Swimmin Hole". This place has always been magical to me. I saw it again for the first time in 45 years in 2012, it brought me to tears of joy. When the opportunity to purchase this property arose, I knew that I wanted a chance to again see this place restored to its former beauty. When I was here as a young man the home was not here, only the patios. The house gave me the opportunity to more intimately share this destination with, my extended family and friends as well as a place that could be enjoyed by new generations.
What makes this House unique
This locations offers the opportunity for guests to relax in a private beautiful river-front setting away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Some of the activities that might interest our guests are: Train Spotting, Bird watching, Fishing, Hiking, Swimming or Sunbathing Here is a thought, consider English Oaks for your next family reunion, or for a wedding or wedding reception. One of the unique qualities that has always drawn me to this place was the trains. Yes they can be loud and frequent at certain times, but that is what I truly enjoy. Sitting on the back porch late in the evening, listening to the sounds of a freight train laboring slowly across the Keddie wye trestle is a genuine joy for a train buff like me.

We had a great stay at this property. It is secluded and peaceful. The house is sparkly clean and beautifully decorated. The property managers are very responsive and helpful. We can’t wait to go back in the summer.
A very nice private location next to the river. I would certainly go again!
The location is private and peaceful. We had a lot of rain on our trip, but the dog did not mind. Lots of train traffic rumbling in the hills, and at night. Other than the trains, it was wonderful!
More Beautiful Than Pictures Reveal
We just returned from a 3-night stay at this gorgeous and relaxing property. We were there to celebrate our daughters 28h birthday and it was an experience we will always have great memories of. The home is decorated nicely with very comfortable beds. The owners were very welcoming, friendly, and responsive. The outside grounds and patios were a vacation within themselves. We used the paddle boat several times and fished from the bank. We took a drive up to Bucks Lake (about 20min. away). The lake was very pretty but it was late in the season so it was cold and windy. The weather was perfect back at the house though and we preferred to stay there. Town is a short 10min. drive with grocery stores and restaurants. The town of Quincy is a fun place to walk around also with unique shops and museums. Thank you Kember and Chris for opening your beautiful home and warm welcome. We would definitely stay here again!
Great relaxing place to stay
We had a great time! Enjoyed swimming the river right at the house , kids on the swing, lounging on the deck. It’s a great place to detach and your only 10mins from town. Ember is really helpful too and super nice. Highly reccomend!!
Everything you could want for a stay in the woods
This property has a wonderful mix of log cabin charm and modern conveniences. There are amenities aplenty, and Ember was nearby to answer or help with any questions. The location on the river is fabulous; there are several decks/patios overlooking the river all wonderful for relaxing or entertaining. We hope to come back again soon!
We had a wonderful stay...couldn’t have asked for more inside or out! The comfort and amenities inside were everything we could have wished for and the outside lounging areas and patios were so peaceful and tranquil! Can’t wait to visit again!!
