Property description

Come relax in a riverfront luxury cabin in a peaceful and quiet setting. This lovely self-contained home sits on .71 acres and includes 2 large bedrooms + loft and 2 full bathrooms (approximately. 1500 sq. ft. and will sleep up to 6 people comfortably with the futon bed in the loft). Your own private stairs lead down to the riverfront fishing/swimming hole. Also included are full kitchen facilities, sitting areas, laundry facilities and dining area as well as high-speed internet, cable TV, & phone (local calls only). The home is decorated in log home motif throughout with custom log furniture and fixtures.

A wrap-around porch extends to 3 sides of the home to take advantage of the surrounding natural beauty. Watch the flow of the river and the playful ducks or otters from your deck while listening to the birds sing in the nearby trees. Additionally, a terrace off of the master bedroom overlooks the river while a terrace off of the loft has a panoramic view of the mountains. Coffeepot, toaster, cookware, eating utensils, linens, and more are furnished for your comfort and convenience.

The clear blue waters of the Smith River have garnered national attention, and its designation of both Wild and Scenic and a National Recreation Area just hint at the unmitigated beauty flowing through the backyard of this home. A log swing and outdoor barbecue in the back yard overlooks the river.

Fish from the shore, kayak along the river, hike through the nearby redwood groves, view the local elk and deer, play on the beach and in the ocean, tour the local lighthouse, see the nearby lily fields, and much more. Just a few miles to the north, you can shop and enjoy the artsy flavor of Brookings, Oregon. Just a few miles south is the equally entertaining Crescent City, California. Both have wonderful restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, fishing, whale-watching, sea-lion gazing, gorgeous sunsets over the ocean, and plenty of entertainment opportunities for all ages.

The Smith River is one of the most prolific fishing rivers for Salmon and Steelhead in the Pacific northwest. Many who have stayed here have returned year after year to enjoy all that this home has to offer.

We look forward to having you as our next guest!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We love the Smith River, We have been visiting the area since 2001 and the Sleepy Salmon Lodge is our 'paradise'. We love the friendly community, mostly mild temperatures, natural beauty of the area, and the rivers and ocean that this area has to offer. Charlie is retired, and Candace has a great Nursing career in California. We have two kids that are grown and starting there own careers but our spoil ones are the three cats and dogs. We have traveled extensively nationwide including many vacation rentals and bed and breakfast accommodations. This has enhanced our abilities to anticipate the needs and concerns of travelers (our guests). We look forward to meeting all of our guests and to help make their stay memorable.

Why the Owner Chose Smith River:
We chose to purchase a vacation rental in Smith River, California because, as our home town, we know that this is a beautiful place to visit while traveling up the coast or as a one-stop vacation spot! Available activities are plentiful here and the weather is perfect almost year-round.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This unique custom-built log cabin style home is rustic luxury. Even the furniture is all custom ordered log style perfectly accenting the decor of the home. Your own private steps lead down to the riverfront where a small 'lagoon' awaits. View the wildlife from the home and large porch / balcony / decks and fish at one of the best fishing spots on the Smith River right in front of your own back door!
