Ellen Cantrell - Owner/Vacation Rental Manager  Plumas Pines Vacation Homes and Rentals  [email protected]

Ellen Cantrell has been the Vacation Rental Manager for Plumas Pines  since 2010. What a time it has been of growth and learning in this amazing industry of hospitality and service!
 
A former corporate librarian, she knows that "the devil is in the details!"  She brings a strong wheel house of knowledge and the wearing many hats in order to manage a thousand details in any given day with owners, guests, vendors, neighbors, HOA's and the fantastic homes on our vacation rental program.  Having a great relationship with both guests and home owners is the cornerstone of her commitment to this industry. 

When she is not busy welcoming and helping guests, setting up new homes and owners to our Vacation Rental program, she loves experiencing living in Graeagle full time and what our town and our beautiful area has to offer.  That means hiking and walking on her days away from the office with her little buddy Madigan (who sometimes gets to work at the office if she is A GOOD DOG) hanging out with friends on her back deck with a glass of wine, making over old pieces of furniture  and visiting with her family in her native California. 

Some of you may know her son Wyatt.  When Wyatt was 14 years old and Ellen was first starting out in the biz, she would send Wyatt down on his bike from the office, to help guests with DirectT.V. problems,  internet issues and general IT help.  Now many years later, he still works in the IT business for a small company in Reno, called BizTel Communications.
