Somes Bar cabin description

We offer a peaceful and comfortable mountain cabin in the heart of the Klamath Mountains.

The setting, nestled among large, ancient, fir trees and majestic hardwoods, is a perfect base camp to explore the surrounding mountains and rivers or just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.

The cabin features a large living room with wood stove, dining table, and two single beds. The kitchen is bright and cheery and fully equipped. The bathroom has a clawfoot tub and shower. The bedroom features a full-size brass bed with closet space.

A screened porch with rockers offers a private setting in the clean mountain air. The porch is a suitable place for two cots or sleeping pads. The spacious back yard offers plenty of room for horseshoes, badminton, volleyball, or tents. There is a large redwood deck with barbecue/fire pit overlooking the backyard.

For those wanting to venture outdoors, our location is an excellent home base to explore the local wild and scenic rivers and the Siskiyou and Marble Mountain Wilderness Areas. Local rafting and kayaking opportunities range from wild Class IV and V runs on the Spring-run Salmon River or less rambunctious Class III and IV runs on the Klamath River.

The Siskiyou and Marble Mountain Wilderness Areas of Klamath National Forest offer many miles of maintained trails leading to high peaks, mountain meadows full of wildflowers, and many beautiful lakes. Guided white-water rafting, fishing, hunting, or wilderness pack trips can be arranged with local licensed outfitters. Wildlife, notably elk, black bears, and osprey abound in this wild section of California.

Great swimming holes of pure, clean, mountain water can be found nearby at the mouth of Dillon Creek or along many miles of the Salmon River.

Nearby Klamath National Forest roads offer mountain biking opportunities.

We live 12 miles from the nearest electrical grid, but we offer home water generated power . There is a public phone two miles away on Highway 96 and, if needed, we can provide message service through our home phone.

Other Amenities

  • The cabin is on a 3 acre parcel that was divided from the original homestead where the owners live. It was built in the 1930s as a fishing cabin. The parcel has a lawn area, but is predominately a forest of giant Douglas-fir trees and mixed hardwoods. The management goals are to preserve some of the older and larger trees and manage the oaks for acorn production and hazel for basket materials for native Karuk people. We are far from the electrical grid so we produce our own electricity with a micro-hydro power system. Plans are to add solar panels to better balance water use and power needs. ...moreless
