Property description

AVAILABLE 7/6-8, DESPITE WHAT CALENDAR SAYS!
FISH~KAYAK~RAFT~HIKE~SUP~GROOVE
In one word, the Miner's is enchanting. It's a one room cabin that sits mere feet from the Trinity River and has world class views and fishing. Guardrail Riffles are just a few minutes' wade from the Miner's.
Multiple Night Discounts:
Regular Season: $155 for 1-2 nights; $145 3-4 nights; $135 5 nights or more.
Quiet Season (between Presidents Day and Memorial Day Weekend): $145 1-2 nights; $135 3-4 nights; $125 5 or more nights.

Compared to camping, this is luxury. Compared to a luxury hotel, this is camping. Look at all of the pictures and our video (Miner's is last on the Steel Bridge cabins' video) and you'll know if you're the kind of person who will love it. Most do. Be aware highway 299 goes by up the mountain a bit and over a berm. You will hear vehicles on it, but they aren't constant and it quiets down a lot at night.

The loft is accessed by a wide, slanted, permanently-installed ladder. It has a plush queen bed guests really enjoy, a small dresser and a bookshelf with interesting books, including one that tells the story of your hosts' work with whales (chapter 10/Eye of the Whale).

The covered river porch looks out on the very close river and has a small table and two chairs. The living area has a double rocker, an oak twin captain's bed/couch with drawers underneath, a small chest of drawers and an antique chest/table with games and cards inside.

There is a small dining table that has one fold-out leaf and 2 stools. The dining set can be rolled where you like (including out on the river porch). There also is a great hammock cot for use inside or out, and a folding indoor/outdoor table that is also a checkerboard (checkers in side pocket).

On an acre and a quarter with three of our other cabins, the Miner's is situated in a grove of trees all by itself. It's romantic, private, unique beyond words and the views from each window are marvelous.

The decor is rich and rustic, with antiques and nice touches everywhere. There is a lighted fan, a faux wood stove heater that looks like the real thing but without the fire danger, and an electric baseboard heater. It has an ipod/MP3 docking station.

Kitchenette area includes a Keurig single-cup coffee maker with K-Cup coffees; toaster oven, microwave, deep electric skillet and a dorm-sized refrigerator. We'll loan you a Crock Pot upon request. Outside on the covered porch, you'll find a very large cooler with frozen water jugs for cooling.

The bathroom has an all-in-one shower & toilet (the shower is to the side of the toilet). Guests at the Miner's have full use of the grounds, including the gas grill and Weber BBQ patio.

Fish right outside your door; this is one of the closest cabins to the Trinity on the entire river. The Miner's Cabin is just a few feet above the Trinity River. It was a real miner's cabin during the Gold Rush and has been lovingly restored and enhanced, because not too many miners had indoor plumbing. Fishers go crazy over this cabin and non-fishers who just want to hang out with a good book do as well.

In winter, the steelhead fishery is fantastic. Summer-fall is salmon season on the Trinity, and we have a salmon hole on the property. The river and Lewiston Lake feature trout fishing, too.

Miner's Landing is a fantastic river rock patio between the Miner's and the river, and it's only for the Miner's guests. There is a fire pit with BBQ grill (wood provided); Adirondack chairs; a stunning large serpentine rock that serves as a table; and room for the hammock cot! Reviews have been astounding for the Landing and the Miner's.

A portable swamp cooler makes our hot summers a lot easier to handle. We installed a large parking lot at the entrance to our property that's perfect for drift boats and rafts. The main drive is paved.

The Miner's is one of our 5 great, dog-friendly river cabins that range all the way from the grand Alpen Glow, a 3BR/2BA A-frame starting @ $285.00/night to a 3BR/2BA cabin perfect for large fishing groups @ $170/night (multiple night discounts available).

Michael Caranci of The Fly Shop in Redding says of our cabins:
'For sheer seclusion, access, and cozy, comfortable accommodations, the cabins at the Trinity River Adventure Inn are certainly among the best!'

We offer sit-on-top kayak lessons, guided trips and rentals; guided raft trips and rentals; and stand-up paddleboard (SUP) demos, lessons and rentals. We have inflatable SUPs and hard boards, which are both great for the lakes.

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 ran 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, 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 guests, they can usually be found on their motorcycles, because Trinity County has the best roads for riding bikes.

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.
