9/2/14: Thanks for sending the photo and the article. Especially the picture of Max with his berries is so funny.
The kids just went back to school and by now half of the town knows about the rafting pirates on the Trinity river.
Definitely one of the highlights of our holiday in California."

TRINITY RIVER: Our river cabins are near Lewiston and Douglas City. They're
45 minutes west of Redding, yet a world away; they're perfectly positioned for fishers, kayakers, hikers and people who just want to kick back and relax.
Be sure to watch the videos for each location; they really let you get a feel for each place.

STEEL BRIDGE LOCATION has four cabins right on the Trinity River. It's ideal for small weddings (all or most of your party can stay right there). The cabins range from large and grand to small and rustic. There is a salmon hole and rope swing on the property, as well as productive riffles for fishing. This is a trophy steelhead location in season.

BUCKTAIL LOCATION has the 3 bedroom/2 bath cabin named Sow's Ear. It is near us in and 3 miles from Lewiston. It isn't right on the river, but it has a nice river view and the great sounds of the river waft up. It is less than a minute's walk to the Trinity, has use of our 600+ feet of shoreline, the fire pit on the river patio, the hot tub overlooking the river and fishing. Bucktail Hole is an easy 5 minute walk from Sow's Ear.
Trinity River Lodging has photos, video & rates for our Trinity River cabins

DUNSMUIR BY MT. SHASTA is home to our Alpine Fish & Ski Haus. It's a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom place right in Dunsmuir and in easy walking distance to the Upper Sacramento River, excellent restaurants and a brew pub, and a fine base camp for hikers, skiers and climbers. Alpine Fish & Ski Haus has photos, video & rates for our Dunsmuir/Mount Shasta lodging.

8/19/14: "Heidi, As we were driving home yesterday after spending four days at your beautiful property, I wanted to tell you
how much I/we enjoyed spending our time together there. The setting is so beautiful and serene and the main house [Alpen Glow] was particularly well-equipped to handle all of our needs and more. It’s been a while since our family has gathered together and this was a wonderful place to do it. Thanks.
" Joe Cook/Oakland, CA See many more reviews on Back Talk.

8/14/14: "The kayak trip exceeded my expectations a thousand times!" 
Mike Volz/St. Charles, IL
(Mike and his wife Cathy were here to celebrate their 30th anniversary; Cathy also tried stand-up paddling & did very well!)

NEW ADVENTURE ARRIVALS!

We have added two fishing kayaks to our kayak fleet. These roomy boats are exceptionally stable and each has
two rod holders for trolling on the lake or river fishing. See our KAYAKING PAGE for rental rates (single kayak rates apply).

We have also added stand-up paddle boards (SUPs) to our equipment! These are fun, exciting and provide an incredible
whole-body workout. Guests may try them free of charge at our Bucktail location, and we'll coach you on getting started.
They are available to rent for lake use, and because they're inflatable, you can throw them in any size vehicle and go.


You start out paddling on your knees. When you're ready, stand up, keeping knees slightly bent. As you can see from Heidi's first voyage, initial stability is wobbly, but as you begin paddling, it gets easier. SUP surfing next!

We hosted a Country Wedding at the Steel Bridge cabins in the summer and it was a smash hit.
Vows overlooking the river, dancing under the stars and a feast served for over 80 guests. Wonderful.

Fish a World Famous River
"Caught my first steelhead and it was fantastic!"

The Trinity River is renowned for salmon, steelhead, trout and more. Guests come from all over the country to fish this river and our locations couldn't be better.
Guides can even pick you up at Bucktail and drop you off at our Steel Bridge cabins. Click here for Fishing.

Kid & Dog-Friendly Lodging & Adventures
"I loved it! I especially liked the fast water parts!”
Miles Johnson, age 10

It takes a special touch to introduce kids to paddling or hiking, or dogs to kayaking, and
we do it well. Whether it's picking blackberries on a kayak trip or running the gentle rapids with your four-legged best friend, everyone has a good time.
Well-behaved, friendly dogs are welcome at all of our cabins; same goes for the kids.

"I recommend this inn to any adventureist who may have kids or dogs."
Tara Roddy/Santa Cruz, CA
