SUP~FISH~KAYAK~RAFT~HIKE~GROOVE~DOG-FRIENDLY
HOT TUB OVERLOOKING THE TRINITY RIVER
NO MINIMUM STAY
Call for multiple night discounts (3 or more nights)! 530.778.3444.

Sow's Ear is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin that is priced for up to 6 guests. We will consider a few more, but try to keep numbers down to keep our septic system happy. Sow's Ear has a wood stove (wood provided), full laundry and kitchen. It has a great covered front porch that has wonderful river sounds, comfortable furniture and even a bit of river view. It is just 5 minutes or so off 299, but end-of-the-road quiet, and very easy to reach on fully paved roads.

It's our only cabin of five that is not directly on the Trinity River, but it's less than a minute's walk down the drive and you have full use of our 600+ feet of riverfront, complete with hammocks, chairs, fire pit, more BBQs, a shaded dining set AND hot tub overlooking the river. All with our end-of-the-road peace and quiet.

You can see and hear the river from the living room, porch and the Rustic and Honeysuckle bedrooms. The living room, kitchen and hall were all freshly painted Spring 2015. The Cedar Sanctuary room that looks out on the rosemary garden and forest was remodeled a few years ago and completely paneled in cedar tongue & groove.
More recent upgrades: beautiful oak laminate in the living room and dining area. The master bath was remodeled and now has a beautiful oak vanity and accessories; porcelain tile floor; and a fresh new color.

Sow's Ear is priced for up to 6 guests. We will consider up to 2 more, but each additional guest, if approved, is $15.75 per night (including tax).

Bucktail put-in is across the river and up a few hundred yards. Sow's Ear has proven to be a very popular cabin for fishers, who can tie their boats off to the trees overnight.

Sow's Ear has a full kitchen with a new gas cook top and everything you could need for cooking (if not, we'll loan it to you); there is a cozy wood stove with firewood, as well as a Monitor heater; and it has a washer and dryer.

A good selection of books awaits you. It is wi-fi, and guests especially enjoy working or checking email on the lovely covered porch (ideal for drying waders and other fishing gear). You may also use our computer for internet access if necessary.

Our shoreline is your shoreline. You can dine overlooking the river, lounge in the hammocks, or fish from the shore.

KAYAK~SUP~RAFT! We give great kayak lessons in front of our cabin and launch there for raft and kayak trips. Bring tubes or smaller rafts for playing in front of our cabin.
Spring-Fall: Free introductory lesson on SUPs (stand-up paddle boards) at our riverfront cabin next to yours. We're on a wide and calm stretch of the river that's perfect for learning this sport. Inflatable and composite SUPs may be rented for lake use.

We are very dog-friendly with friendly dogs, and you can take your dogs with you on kayak or raft adventures!

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.'
Michael Caranci/The Fly Shop Redding, CA FFF Certified Master Instructor

If you're looking for comfort, peace and very reasonable rates, you're going to love Sow's Ear.

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, or skiing Mt. Shasta (they also have a really cool ski haus in Dunsmuir that's minutes from Shasta's Ski Park)..

Why the Owner Chose Lewiston:
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 (Alpen Glow, Miner's, Carriage House) or darn close to it with full use of our riverfront (Sow's Ear).
