WE'RE IN THE QUIET PERIOD WITH OUR LOWEST RATES OF THE YEAR!
Join us for a relaxed stay in a charming cabin on the Trinity where you can fish, read and observe nature.
Or come to our Alpine Fish & Ski Haus by Mt. Shasta. The area is known for its exquisite spiritual retreats and mineral spas. Of a simpler outlook? Fantastic hiking and climbing everywhere.

Our unique Trinity River cabins are spread out over 3 different locations about 15 minutes from Weaverville. Their individual links are above in the header bar. They range from a real miner's cabin that has been lovingly restored and enhanced and is just a few feet from the river all the way up Alpen Glow, our stunning A frame that looks out on sweeping lawns, the river, mountains and sky.

Alpine Fish & Ski Haus in Dunsmuir is an ideal rendezvous point from the north and south. It has 3+ bedrooms, 2 baths, full laundry, a private patio with fire pit and much more. Just 20 minutes from the mountain. See our Dunsmuir page for details.
You're going to love our lodging and what their areas have to offer!

WE HAVE REDUCED RATES SUNDAY-THURSDAY AND ALSO OFFER DISCOUNTS ON 3 OR MORE NIGHT STAYS. CALL FOR SPECIALS CLOSE TO ARRIVAL DATE, AS WELL AS GREAT WEEKLY RATES FOR EXTENDED STAYS. 

By Heidi Tiura 18 Mar, 2016
This is a terrific time of year even though it gives one a sort of sensory whiplash as we jolt from massive rains to warm and sunny days and then back to very chilly throughout Trinity and Siskiyou counties. We have a couple of really cold days when clothing has to be layered and up on Shasta, the snowfall coats everything in glistening white. But then you notice rioting daffodils sprinkle the countryside and tiny violets are in bloom.

Our Trinity guests the past month or so have caught some of the wild steelhead that are fresh from the sea and prolific well into April; celebrated milestones such as a 40th birthday; and escaped from cities to spend some quiet time by the river.  

It is an odd contradiction that the wild steelhead come later in the season on the Trinity and are the most exciting to catch, but a lot of fishers don't know about this timing and miss out on them, having come up in the more popular months of November-January. The picture of Phil above was taken in the middle of February when he and his buddy Brian Miller fished with guide Greg Hector. Since the hatchery just released their smolt and German brown trout go crazy for them, it's also a very good time for German browns.

Dunsmuir guests have gotten the chance to ski Shasta and there have been many epic days, some of which Steph and I were lucky enough to catch. Having not had a ski season for 2 years, we felt we deserved longer stays up north and yet the Fish & Ski Haus is a vacation rental, so we worked out a cool bunkhouse option. Guests can rent the downstairs with its 2 bedrooms and 4 beds; full bath and laundry; and kitchen privileges upstairs for a mere fraction of the cost of renting the whole Haus ($35 per person per night if you bring a sleeping bag!).  Last week, we hosted coaches for the Auburn ski and board teams. They were up there for the regional championships and had a grand time both on and off the mountain. (One reason they wanted to stay in Dunsmuir was because they discovered the Dunsmuir Brewery Works on their last visit and loved it.)

We had guests at Sow's Ear next to us with whom we really hit it off.  They admitted to wondering if our stories could possibly be true, because if they are, there is so much crammed into our lives. From Steph's having  paddled a sea kayak from Canada to Mexico and Heidi running a towboat on the infamous Columbia River Bar in Oregon; to whales;  motorcycles; ferocious conservation efforts and so much more,  it has been one wild ride and still is. All true. Check it out.
