Property description

Lovingly named creekside, this beautiful, hand-crafted log home is privately located just outside the historic small town of Etna, California. Nestled at the base of the majestic salmon mountains, creekside is centrally located between the marble mountain, trinity alps, and russian wilderness areas. The area offers unique opportunities for outdoor fun, with nearby access to numerous wilderness trailheads and easy access to the pacific crest trail. With its many mountain lakes and streams, the scott valley and siskiyou county area is quickly becoming a recreational mecca for fishing, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, seasonal hunting, biking, and river rafting. A drive through the fertile scott valley will take you back in time to the many working cattle ranches, historic villages, and nineteenth century Victorian homes and farm houses. Your close-at-hand manager can guide you with suggestions on what to see and do during your stay.

As you enter the property on the private, gated road, you immediately know you are in an enchanted place. The honey-gold cabin features walls of windows to the creek, woods, and vast green lawns. Featuring high ceilings, rustic log construction, and an open, clean feel, the cabin is filled with comfortable furniture and cozy décor. Creekside’s three bedrooms, two baths, open loft area, and private decks overlooking the sparkling etna creek, affords numerous special places for a nap or a cozy place to read and have a quiet conversation with family and friends. Rest between adventures with a bar-b-q and glass of wine on the wrap around deck and take a stroll through the yard or have a cooling dip in the creek. With no neighbors, you are assured peace and quiet. Creekside is situated on its own six acres of creek frontage with lush meadows surrounded by cedar, pine, and oak trees within a carefully preserved natural terrain. Unique to this property is its year-round artesian spring that provides ice-cold, pure water to the house and the yard. The water will be one of your favorite memories of creekside. Drink up!

There are several dining options within a couple miles of creekside including an old-time ice-cream parlor, the ranch house café, the award-winning etna micro-brewery, and local antique shops. Five minutes away is a coffee bar that makes a latte to rival starbucks! An hour drive away is eclectic ashland oregon with its world-famous cuisine, parks, and shows. The ashland area hosts art galleries, dining, shopping, and many local events including the famous shakespeare festival that runs during the summer season. Each of the small local towns in the immediate area of creekside offers unique entertainment. In july the bluegrass festival comes to etna! Attracting local musicians and artists, and performers from across the country, the bluegrass festival is not to be missed. Throughout the year there are local rodeos, parades, local produce vendors, street fairs, and art shows.

A short drive up the road to the summit of salmon mountain, you will experience the breathtaking 360 degree view of mt shasta to the east and the salmon river and coast range to the west. Walkable lakes are close at hand. Bring your fishing pole. Don’t forget your camera for this one-of-a-kind photo opportunity. The pacific crest trail crosses the road a quick ten miles from creekside.
A short drive south from creekside, you can dine and shop at the base of majestic mt. Shasta and golf at lake shastina golf course. Schedule during the winter season and you can enjoy access to the mt shasta ski bowl. Accessible year-round, the magic of creekside is unparalleled when it snows. With so many things to do and see and the wilderness area just steps away, you and your family and friends are sure to have a vacation to remember!
