We have Trinity River cabins in two locations east of Weaverville, CA & one vacation rental in Dunsmuir near Mt. Shasta.
Plus, we're adding another vacation rental farther out on Steel Bridge Road this spring! 

We've named it the Birdhouse, because it has abundant wild birds, including a magnificent peacock.
It is an ultra-peaceful getaway. If you never got dressed during your stay, nobody would know; it's that private.
It has 2 bedrooms; 1 bathroom; a full kitchen and laundry; wood stove; and a great living room that looks out into the upper
canopy of mature madrone and oak trees. It has a wraparound porch perfect for morning coffee, reading, or watching the birds
at the bird feeders. (Locals often meet the peacock at our driveway to feed him.)

We've collected some great furnishings for the Birdhouse. There is a carved oak bed, a rich leather and wildlife tapestry couch and loveseat & much more. The garden is shaded, has a dining set, BBQ, horseshoe pit, hammock, comfy lounge chairs and a nice view of the Trinity River across Steel Bridge Road (which is great for biking, running or walking your dog).

Guests have use of our river property across the road, which includes room for their boats, a wide open shoreline with a perfect swimming place for kids and dogs, and a rudimentary launch ramp.

Steph has already completely tiled the bathroom. The living room is going from paneling to softly textured off white. Heidi has pressure-washed the big porch before it gets painted (along with the rest of the place), and she's taken out trees that blocked light into the kitchen. Here are some of the "Before" pictures as we work like crazy turning it into another interesting and comfortable escape.

TRINITY RIVER LOCATIONS: 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 on the property, as well as productive riffles for fishing. This is a trophy steelhead location in season, which runs from October into March.

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.

Check our calendars on the Trinity Lodging page or our Dunsmuir page for available dates.
Your best rates will always be obtained by booking direct through us by calling 530.778.3444.

Fish a World Famous River
"Caught my first steelhead and it was fantastic!"
Frank Meraz, Sr./Fresno, CA

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.
Ever seen salmon spawn? Click here to see the spawn we watched off our bank in the fall.
It's really something to see.


SUP, Kayak & Raft Adventures: Lessons & Guided Trips or On Your Own
"The kayaking was our unforgettable experience."
Amy Little/Sebastopol, CA

Tried stand-up paddleboarding yet? It's not only enjoyable, it's great exercise and especially easy on the joints. We offer free demos, plus rentals and sales of inflatable SUPs, as well as epoxy boards and hybrids. Confused about the various types? We will educate you with no pressure, ever.

Fun, easy, sit-on-top Ocean Kayak lessons, guided trips, rentals and sales available year-round on Lewiston Lake as well as down the mild, but still exciting, upper Trinity River.
Plus guided raft trips & rentals, birding & much more! Explore What to Do Here.


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


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.
