Douglas City cabin description

FREE introductory stand-up paddle board lessons are available at our riverfront cabin 6 miles away! We're on a calm, wide stretch that's perfect for trying this wonderful sport that gives you an excellent workout while letting you explore.
PLEASE READ THIS DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY: The Carriage House has one bedroom and one bathroom and comfortably sleeps three in beds. A fourth can sleep on the couch for an additional charge. If you choose to rent Dragonfly, it sleeps two in one bed. It shares the Carriage House bathroom. The trailer next door may be rented as well as the Carriage House, adding one bedroom and one bathroom. By making the dinette into a bed, it can sleep 3 total. But the Carriage House alone does not sleep 9 guests.

We have multiple night discounts; please email or call for a quote on stays of 3 or more nights. Trinity River Adventure Inn's Carriage House is an historic carriage house from the Vitzthum homestead converted into a wonderful cabin. This is a really comfortable, rustic cabin that looks out on the Trinity River from a dandy covered porch complete with a dining set and lounge chairs. Inside, you'll find 1 bedroom with a queen log bed; a full bath and a full kitchen. There is a wood stove (wood provided) as well as gas and electric heat. The cedar-paneled living room has a full-sized couch and loveseat which face the wood stove and a twin-sized captain's bed. The Carriage House is all one level; perfect for strollers and wheelchairs.

Watch TV on the couch and loveseat, or from the dining table. Use the well-lighted antique secretary to tie flies or cruise the internet. You'll enjoy the shady porch overlooking the Trinity. It has a mister for hot days. The vast lawn between you and the river is perfect for playing ball with the kids, dogs or both.

Dragonfly is a standalone cabin next to the Carriage House, which can be rented only with the Carriage House and adds an extra bedroom with a double bed and whimsical dragonfly decor.

The large, deep, covered back porch looks out on the Trinity River, which is accessed at the edge of the lawn (2 steps down from cabin to porch). It has a glass and wicker dining set for 4 plus many other seating options. There is a fog mister to cool down hot summer days and it's delightful for playing cards, reading or just watching the river go by.

The entire interior of the cabin is solid cedar and there are many warm touches in the decor such as a wood stove (wood provided); horse collar mirror; leather couch and loveseat; oak dining set inside; wicker/glass dining set outside; and an antique oak secretary with a great light, perfect for tying flies. Bring your MP3/ipod! Stereo docking stations are in the cabin and include a patch cord to accommodate any MP3.

There is a large parking lot at the entrance to our property. Guests can arrive, unload their vehicles, and leave them in the lot, which is also perfect for drift boats and rafts.

The Carriage House is one of our four great cabins on 1 1/2 private acres off Steel Bridge Road near Douglas City. Cabins range from the romantic 'Miner's Cabin' @ $155/night to 'Alpen Glow,' a grand 3BR/2BA A frame with lots of sleeping options @ $305/night (one of the most spectacular views EVER from the River Loft). Rates drop with multiple night stays, but we have no minimum stay. Each cabin has its own feel and plenty of privacy, plus you can rent all of the cabins for a wedding, reunion or company gathering.

There can be great fishing from your bank. Fish the salmon hole; wade downstream to the steelhead riffles. This is one of four cabins that can accommodate a large party, but each is well-separated from the others. No minimum stay. The deep front porch is excellent for fishing gear and waders.

Michael Caranci, FFF Certified Master Instructor with The Fly Shop in Redding, CA says:
'As a long time Trinity River angler and guide, and the Director of Outfitters for The Fly Shop in Redding, I've had the opportunity over the years to visit many of the different motels, lodges, and cabins along the Trinity River. For sheer seclusion, access, and cozy, comfortable accommodations, the cabins at the Trinity River Adventure Inn are certainly among the best.'

We also have a 29' trailer near the Carriage House which may only be rented by Carriage House guests, adding lodging for up to 4 more guests. It offers a king-sized bed in the private bedroom, and the dinette folds into a queen-sized bed. The trailer has a bathroom with a toilet and shower. The trailer rents for $75 per night for 1-2 guests. Although our cabins are fully furnished and all linens and bedding are included, trailer guests do need to bring sleeping bags, towels and pillows. There is a $20 cleaning fee for the trailer.

Not all vacation rentals are alike. Our cabins are owned and maintained by us. If you need us, we are here for you. This is worth considering, because nothing is worse than having a problem and calling a long-distance property owner. We know, because it happens up here all the time.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Steph Dutton is a world-renowned kayaker who paddled from Canada to Mexico, then paddled the Oregon coast again, in the winter. He also circumnavigated California's Channel Islands, often enduring thirty foot seas. Heidi Tiura owned and operated several businesses before running away to sea and working on tug boats in Alaska, Washington and Oregon. Steph and Heidi are both Coast Guard licensed masters (captains), and creators of Sanctuary Cruises on the Monterey Bay. They have been featured in numerous books and documentaries for their work with whales (including National Geographic's 'Whale Attack,' which was based on their Mother's Day 2004 whale watching cruise). Now, they live on the upper Trinity River and their kayak adventures are of a tamer sort. When not rafting or kayaking with their dogs and guests, they can usually be found on their motorcycles, because Trinity County has some of the best roads in the world for riding bikes. And if not riding their bikes, they're up at their Dunsmuir place, Alpine Ski & Fish Haus. For them, Dunsmuir is the Big City.

              Why the Owner Chose Douglas City:
              Trinity County has the unbeatable combination of great natural beauty, incredible recreation opportunities, and it hasn't been overrun by tourists. People who have come here for twenty years remark at how little has changed. It is a spectacular place to explore.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Being on the river has to be one of the most relaxing things there is up here. Whether you fish, paddle, want to try the rope swing into the swimming hole, or just sit and watch the fish swim by, it is a wonderful escape to have a cabin right on the water.
