"Loved it. Just, loved it. If you know anything about the Smith River, you know it's probably the most pristine river in the USA. But what you don't know, is that this cabin is on the most perfect spot on the Smith River. Perfect swimming hole with just enough ripples and rocks just upstream to make the tubes/boats move a little faster.
It's very close to the Redwoods, which I loved. My kids thought the Redwoods were great and all, but couldn't wait to get back to play in the river. Oh, and play with Bella, the most gentle dog to be found, anywhere.
Joe and Sally are tremendous hosts. They're there and available, and full of local information. We enjoyed our departure-day visit with them. I would've been pleased to have Joe be my kids' teacher before he retired.
The house itself is just right. You don't come out here to watch movies on a big-screen TV and play on your techno-gadgets. You come out here to get away from all that. And, "gotten away" is how you feel. So quiet and peaceful. And SO DARK at night. After the first night, we made sure to have the little provided hand-lamps next to our beds for the future.
So, would we go back again? Oh, man. We can't WAIT to go back again."
