SOW'S EAR~Bucktail

Sow's Ear
Located in the little community of Bucktail near Lewiston

Sow's Ear is end-of-the-road-quiet, has a bit of a river view from the wonderful covered front porch and the front bedrooms get lovely river sounds when the windows are open. It's located just up the drive from our cabin and guests are encouraged to treat our 600+ feet of shoreline, river patio and hot tub as their own.
 
This August we added a beautiful matching sofa and chair at Sow's Ear featuring a rich tapestry design of fish, canoes, elk and black bears. The black bears are rifling our compost bins on a regular basis so we felt it was only right to honor those swift, sleek and incredibly fast (as well as devilish) creatures that add so much to our mountain life.

Sow's Ear is a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom cabin that has a full laundry (we supply soap and dryer towels), cozy wood stove (we provide the wood), Monitor heater and A/C. There is great hiking right out the door, either straight up into the woods or on pavement within the little community of Bucktail. There is a hard-packed dirt road leading out of Bucktail that goes all the way over the mountain to Highway 299 near Weaverville. Serious runners and bikers love this road! 

Sow's Ear has a Smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime and Wi-Fi. Guests may also choose many pay-per-view options as well as free services such as Pandora for music, CBS for news and much more. There is a shared phone. Cell coverage is not available here, but you will pick it up closer to and throughout Weaverville.

Good dogs may run free and if they chase a deer, soon learn they can't catch them. Weber and a beautiful stainless steel gas BBQ and a teak dining set are next to the lawn, but all of the chairs and tables around the fire pit on our patio are for you to use, too. 
HEADS & BEDS: Each cabin is priced for a maximum number of guests and we do expect your numbers to be accurate, because each guest adds a bit of wear and tear, pressure on the septic system and water demands. We will consider additional guests, but prefer not to go over 6; if more guests are allowed, they are $15.75 each per night.  (Infants are not charged.)

DOG STUFF: We welcome friendly dogs. There is a $15 charge per dog per stay. If you're involved in a day-long outing such as a guided fishing trip, we may be able to dog sit (we have one returnee dog who loves to do "guy stuff" with Steph and our dogs. They go to the dump and the dump lady gives the dogs cookies; they especially love trips to Trinity Lumber where they get to go inside). If we can't pitch in, especially in summer's heat, consider boarding your dog(s) at Weaverville Pet Motel (1790 Main St, Weaverville. Call 530.623.0060). They treat animals very well! 

Our video for 2013 Sow's Ear lacks many of the nice touches we've done since, such as the great new freestanding gas stove and oak cabinets in the kitchen (with more to come), or the fresh paint in the living room and kitchen, but it definitely gives you a feel for the cabin, location and just how much you'll enjoy yourselves here!

DIRECTIONS: From Redding, drive west on 299 to the SECOND turn-off for Lewiston; it will be on your right. 
From Weaverville/west, drive about 12-15 minutes and take the first Lewiston turn-off (it will be on your left; you will also see a sign for the winery). 

Check your odometer and drive 3 miles, passing Trinity Fly Shop and One Maple Winery. At three miles, take a LEFT onto Browns Mountain Road (there is a small ranch on the left corner with a red and white sign that says "TIRE REPAIR" and on the right is a sign pointing left for Bucktail Hole and Trinity River Access). Drive down the hill and over the river. Take the first right after the river, onto Salmon Drive. Go one block where Salmon dead-ends at Steelhead Circle. Right on Steelhead and go to the end (about 1 long block). Sow's Ear is on the left at the end there is a sign out front. Curve left up the driveway and you are home.

Our cabin is at the very end on the right. It's round and sage green and behind a tall, weathered fence. Come down and say hi, or just go on into Sow's Ear and get settled.  Our patio with its fire pit, 600+ feet of riverfront and the hot tub are to be considered yours and we won't be happy if you don't take advantage of it!
