Crescent City house description

A gorgeous 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......Jim

remember.....no hairdriers,microwaves,toasters or toaster ovens,waffle irons or electric skillets...we are on a solar system....for lights mainly......

              Car: Necessary

              Here, almost from the moment you arrive, you are immersed in the splendor of nature at her most extravagant. Each path leads to a breathtaking world of contrasts - tiny flowers in the shadow of the world's largest trees, the silent grace of a solitary pelican dippings its wings the pounding surf, morning mists evaporating in the warmth of the sun. Del Norte County is all this and more. Unspoiled and unlike any other place on earth, Del Norte County is an experience in nature, both on her own terms AND in the many ways the natural environment shapes and directs the County's unique lifestyle.The google map is not accurate in showing where the house is.....house is on the Smith river and the 12 acre property actually crosses the river.....river sounds all day and nite....one of my most favorite spots on the planet......you will enjoy if you love nature and clean everything.....and remember we have wild friends around the house.From deer to bears that are very afriad of humans....so if you see one just make some noise and they will run away fast.....may look scary but totally harmless......Jim Matthews...owner

              Other Activities: kayaking, rock climbing, horseshoes, shelling. fishing,swiming,beach combing,hiking trails,seeing Redwoods
