Beautiful 2 Story House on Smith River- Private Beach, Trails,& More!

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
A gorgeous 15 mile drive along the South Fork of the Smith River gets you to this luxurious river side house located in an area named 'Big Flat' as it is a big flat area high in the mountains where the inland tribes gathered to meet the coastal tribes. Rich in natural history and scenic beauty, this is the type of place one wants to check in, and 'check out'. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of the river rushing by as well as a multitude of songbirds and miles of majestic wilderness, there is opportunity for swimming, rafting, tubing, hiking, cycling, fishing, kayaking or just laying on the river view deck soaking up the sun in summer or snuggling by the fire in colder months.The house affords the ability to rough it in great comfort as it has full amenities while being off the grid, we have equipped it with solar power and propane appliances.Due to the solar power system capacity--- microwaves,toasters,hairdriers and other resistance appliances will drain the system.In addition to the river being on the property there are several small lakes with good fishing that can be driven to. Also there are several lakes that are good backpack trips in the higher mountains.We also have a trail head to the Kelsey trail near the house. The Kelsey trail is part of the Pacific Crest trail.For more information see the Six Rivers National Forest map....many things to do.....if you see a bear just make some noise and he will run away......harmless......just don`t leave tasty smelling food out that would attract them......Jimremember.....no hairdriers,microwaves,toasters or toaster ovens,waffle irons or electric skillets...we are on a solar system....for lights mainly......
Air-conditioned accommodations at this resort offer fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas.

5/5 Excellent

Family Vacation
We had a great time staying at the cabin. The Smith River never disappoints. Thanks for an amazing home base! My daughter had a great time making forts in the loft.

5/5 Excellent

River retreat
Truly a retreat from busy city life. We loved playing board games, reading, and of course, fishing in the river. Just the antidote for zoom fatigue.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful property! Perfect place to be unplugged for a long weekend!!

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Rental
Both the rental and the property are great. The view from the cabin overlooking the river is wonderful, and the cabin itself is spacious and clean. Will definitely return if the opportunity arises.

4/5 Good

Remote off-the grid living!
We had the pleasure of staying at this cabin for Thanksgiving. It was warm, cozy and very remote. Solar electricity was new to us as was generator use. We got there in time for it to rain constantly for two days. We lost lights on the second night. Luckily the owner left directions and we figured out how to use the generator. The cabin was right on the river. It was beautiful but because of the rain we couldn’t take the trail down to the beach. We did see a deer right outside our door. My only complaint was the rain, but obviously that can’t be helped. I would recommend this place as a relaxing, remote place to enjoy during the summer. There was so much more we couldn’t do because of the constant rain but the cabin left us warm and dry.
