About the property

Open single story floorplan with 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 baths and forest views

Emerald Point is an ideal getaway cabin in the quiet of the mountains. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a gated community the setting is quiet and private but still connected with phone, satellite TV, and the internet.

The house features a master suite with a Cal King Bed, jetted tub, double sinks, oversized shower, walk-in closet, and private deck. The second suite features a queen bed, with adjoining bath and the third bedroom has two twin beds that share the queen suite bath thru a separate entry or use the adjacent half bathroom. The den has french doors and can also be used for overflow sleeping with a large leather sofa and twin mattress for overflow. All rooms have generous closets.

The cabin features a single story with high cathedral ceilings and an open floor plan accommodating seven in comfortable casual living. The spacious kitchen is open to the dining and living area (Great Room) with easy access to the large deck wrapping the outside and perched in the trees with sunset views down the ravine. A large gas grill makes BBQs a must. The Great Room is centered around an inset wood burning fireplace which keeps the main space toasty in the winter with plenty of wood available.

The house also features an oversized two car garage and sunny laundry room so you can bring fewer suitcases for your getaway.

Walking from the house you can explore the groomed Gold Mountain trails (maps available in the cabin) or the logging roads in the forest where you can hike down to the Feather River to enjoy fishing for trout, bird watching or just an afternoon in nature. There are four bikes available to test your stamina on the ten miles of gated roads in the resort or the numerous bike trails adjacent to the resort as well as horseshoes, frisbies and assorted balls.

About Bradley Cutler

The house is as eclectic as the owners from El Salvador and New England. A little latin and rustic tradition blended together. We currently live in the Sacramento area but find time to get away to the quiet of the sierra's with its crisp air and clear skies.

Bradley Cutler purchased this house in 2013

Why Bradley Cutler chose Gold Mountain

We loved the relaxing quality of the area and enjoyed many weekends before purchasing. If you like to hike, bike, cross country, fish, golf, or just enjoy the quiet, you'll love this retreat.

What makes this house unique

The one element that separates this place is the feeling when you're there that you are perched at the edge of the forest on the boundary with nature. It's a true retreat you'll love to return to.

It is is an excellent place for relaxation and sharing time with good friends or family, is quiet, the surrounding is beautiful and your cabin invites to feel comfortable and warmed.

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house and was very grateful for the food in the pantry. Bradley was very kind and helpful. Just a little of a bother that we had to bring our own towels and sheets. Kind of interesting that we needed to pack our trash out too. I felt nervous that I was going to make the homeowners association upset too. Stars were amazing out there.

Owner's Response: Rural living has its benefits, and limitations - especially utilities. Minimizing laundry and trash help tremendously and we appreciate our guests who can throw a trash bag in their car on the way home due to the difficulty of timing the trash pickup here in bear country. But no worry if you don't have room.

If your looking for a remote, quiet, tranquil setting in the trees, then this is it.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. I never wanted to leave. The owner has made it feel like it was our own. Fully stocked with all the basics plus extra in case you forgot something. The kitchen is wonderful to cook in and the beds are all very comfortable. The forest surrounding the house makes it a very quiet and peaceful place to be. From the sunrise on the front porch to the sunset on the back deck, each day was great.

Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, clean, comfortable home. It's very quiet and peaceful you just can't help but relax. The large deck is fabulous for star gazing. Kitchen was well stocked, we really only needed to bring perishable items. It was quite warm during our stay so we were happy to have the fans in bedrooms to help circulate the air at night. House was nice and cool by morning. The owners left very specific instructions that were quite helpful for keeping things cool. Owner was very fast to respond to our questions during booking and stay. Most of our activities took place in Graeagle so this location worked out well. We would definitely stay again.

The Nakoma Golf and Spa Resort expanded with Altitude, a brand new must see 12,000 square foot recreational center for workouts, yoga classes, heated swimming pool, spa, rock climbing and bistro dining with a teen center and private movie room.

The surrounding area is an outdoor paradise with six other local golf courses, numerous waterfalls (180' Frazier Falls) , streams (Feather River out our back door) and lakes including Gold Lake and Lake Davis are just a few minutes drive. Situated at 4800 foot elevation the cabin is also ideally suited for hiking and biking with numerous mapped trails nearby. In winter, snow shoeing and tubing are available at the Nakoma Resort rental shop and it's all accessible up Rt 70 without going over any high mountain passes.

If you don't feel like cooking the area supports many restaurants located on the resort or in the adjacent towns of Graeagle, Blairsden and Portola.

Portola also has a fully staffed hospital open 24/7 with the capability of air transport to Reno.
