The front of the Quincy Feather Bed Inn brochure reads: Escape from your daily hustle, Relax in our luxurious accommodations.
That’s fine and all , but where is Quincy?
You’ve all heard of Sierra Nevada locations such as Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, and Mammoth Lakes. Quincy lies at the center of all activity within Plumas County, just north of Sierra County and is one of the best-kept secrets of California. Nicknamed The Lost Sierra, Plumas County is surrounded by Plumas National Forest, Tahoe National Forest, and Lassen National Forest. This alpine wonderland of 8,500-foot peaks enjoys a much less crowded experience than its tourist ladled cousins. Much of the area lies within the federally protected Lakes Basin Recreation Area that has 50 plus glacially carved lakes. There are many lakes to choose from within Plumas County, where you can rent boats, fish, swim, paddle board, water ski, kayak, hike, mountain bike, pan for gold. Sardine Lake is a personal favorite of the Inn’s owners. Stunning views beg you to hike to the upper Sardine Lake and pack a picnic for a memorable experience. Or enjoy lakeside dining at Sardine Lake Resort.
From the Quincy Feather Bed Inn, you can make day trips to any one of the lakes, streams or rivers to enjoy your favorite activity. Silver Lake and Gold Lake are stunning, and just a short drive away. At Bucks Lake, only 17 miles from the Inn, you can picnic, hike, bike, fish, swim, boat and enjoy lunch on the deck at Bucks Lake Lodge. You can take off on foot or bike direct from the Inn and enjoy beautiful scenery, hiking, and biking trails. Peddle right back to the Inn, or stop at the brewpub for a pint.
