Douglas City apartment description

Historic Indian Creek Lodge is nestled in the mountains just 35 miles west of Redding and I-5. The Lodge is right on the Trinity River in the heart of the renowned steelhead and salmon drifts. The charming gold rush town of Weaverville and trailheads into the Trinity Alps Wilderness are just a few miles away.

While the Lodge is best known as headquarters for world class fishing for Chinook salmon, steelhead, and German brown trout, it boasts many other attractions for guests year around. Summer months bring bright sunny days and cool mountain nights. Family summer activities can include rafting on the river, hiking, gold panning, lounging by the pool, barbecuing, ping pong, and horseshoes as well as great fishing (check out some of Guest Comments/Family Vacations on our website). Spring and fall are also beautiful times of year in the mountains, and of course from July through the winter months and fishing for Chinook salmon and then steelhead is the name of the game.

The Lodge’s beautiful grounds and conference rooms make it ideal for groups, retreats, reunions, and weddings. Business travelers appreciate the relaxing atmosphere, free wi-fi, and immaculate, comfortable rooms.

This spacious (900 sq.ft.) second floor apartment is often referred to by returning guests, especially steelhead anglers, as 'The Penthouse' and 'The Taj Mahal'. It has a two bedrooms and a comfortable futon, a fully furnished kitchen (dishwasher, etc.) and dining area, living room, and a breezeway overlooking three acres of beautiful grounds and private access to over 200 yards of a great stretch of the Trinity River.

The Lodge frequently offers Special Packages that appeal to budget minded anglers and those interested in a relaxing weekend getaway. Check our website for special packages.

                      The Lodge offers world class king salmon and steelhead fishing right on the property, and there's lots of additional good public access nearby. We are an old fashioned place where guests kick back, enjoy the riverfront quietude, lounge at the pool, pan for gold, play ping pong, volleyball, badminton, or horseshoes, etc. Just a few miles away are the charming gold rush town of Weaverville, which provides great shop/strolling, and trailheads into the Trinity Alps.

                      The Weaverville Basin Trail System provides 50 miles of trails around Weaverville for the hiker and mountain biker. There is a self-guided walking tour of historical sites that starts on the Weaver Bally Road, and evidence of early-day gold mining can be seen throughout the trail system. The trails also draw enthusiastic reviews from mountain bikers, providing the challenging course for the LaGrange Spring Classic in May and the LaGrange Fall Classic in October. In October 2015 the World Mountain Biking Endurance 24 Hour Championship will be held on the trail system.

                      The Lodge’s beautiful grounds and conference rooms make it ideal for groups, retreats, reunions, and weddings.

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About: Elena's work background is primarily in health care and administration; John was in the legal field. John is well into senior citizenship, Elena is just getting there. Though of retirement age, we are not retired in spirit. Over the four years of our ownership we have attempted to take advantage of the Lodge's exceptional location on the Trinity River by creating a lodging facility that reflects the beauty and tranquility of the river. When we travel we appreciate good service, and our dedication to providing exceptional service is reflected on the Guest Comments appearing on our website.

                      Why Douglas City:
                      We are long time residents of Trinity County, and for many years we watched this fine old place go through multiple owners and managers. We frequently said to each other 'someone should buy that place and do it right', despite the fact that we had no experience in the lodging business. In the summer of 2009 the Lodge again was for sale, and basically we called each others' bluff by purchasing the property and jumping in head first. We had to learn the business fast, and fortunately we soon received supportive feed back from return guests. Many of those folks have become friends, and they really furnished the fuel that keeps us going. We still have a 'to do' list of improvements to make, but our four years of efforts have resulted in an exceptionally nice accommodation in a gorgeous setting at very reasonable rates. We're proud of that, and intend to keep it up. Again, please check out the Guest Comments on our website, Yelp.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Location, location, location. Over 200 yards of beautiful riverfront that just happens to be one of the best stretches on the Trinity for salmon, steelhead, and browns. Lots of additional public access nearby. Our accommodations are very clean, cozy, and comfortable with a nice ambiance. Many guests say they feel like they feel at home here . . . and they don't want to leave.
