The Carriage House has a rich cedar interior, rustic log bed and grand wildlife tapestry and leather couch and love seat. In summer, it holds its cool temperature well and has a swamp cooler to keep you comfortable. In winter, the wood stove is charming and very efficient, and there are traditional if less romantic heating options as well. The cabin was the original carriage house from the Vitzthum homestead before being converted into a cabin. It sits right on the river and has productive steelhead riffles in wading distance from your door.
The Carriage House has one bedroom and one bathroom and comfortably sleeps three in beds (2 in bedroom's queen log bed and 1 in captain's bed in living room). A fourth can sleep on the couch for an additional charge.
We have multiple night discounts; please email or call for a quote on stays of 3 or more nights. This is a really comfortable, rustic cabin that looks out on the Trinity River from a dandy covered porch complete with a second dining set and lounge chairs.
Inside, along with the bedroom with a queen log bed, you'll find a full bath and a full kitchen. Wood is provided for the wood stove, plus there is gas and electric heat. The cedar-paneled living room has a stunning wildlife tapestry and leather full-sized couch and loveseat set and a twin-sized captain's bed. The Carriage House is all one level; perfect for strollers and wheelchairs.
Watch TV on the couch and loveseat, or from the dining table. Use the well-lighted antique secretary to tie flies or cruise the internet. The vast lawn between you and the river is perfect for playing ball with the kids, dogs or both.
The large, deep, covered back porch looks out on the Trinity River, which is accessed at the edge of the lawn (2 steps down from cabin to porch). It has a glass and wicker dining set for 4 plus many other seating options. It's delightful for playing cards, reading, or just watching the river go by. There is a docking station to play your music from an ipod, MP3 or phone.
There is a large parking lot at the entrance to our property. Guests can arrive, unload their vehicles, and leave them in the lot, which is also perfect for drift boats and rafts.
The Carriage House is one of our three great cabins on 1.15 private acres off Steel Bridge Road near Douglas City. Cabins range from the romantic Miner's Cabin, which is one of the closest cabins to the water on the entire river, to 'Alpen Glow,' a grand 3BR/2BA A frame with a fabulous deck, incredible kitchen, large dining table, and lots of sleeping options (one of the most spectacular views EVER from the River Loft).
Rates drop with stays of 3 or more nights. We will consider one-night stays, but the busier we are, the tougher it is to accommodate them. Shoulder seasons are easier (spring and fall). Each cabin has its own feel and plenty of privacy, plus you can rent all of the cabins for a wedding, reunion or company gathering.
There can be great fishing from your bank. Fish the salmon hole; wade downstream to the steelhead riffles. The deep front porch is excellent for fishing gear and waders.
Michael Caranci, FFF Certified Master Instructor with The Fly Shop in Redding, CA says:
'As a long time Trinity River angler and guide, and the Director of Outfitters for The Fly Shop in Redding, I've had the opportunity over the years to visit many of the different motels, lodges, and cabins along the Trinity River. For sheer seclusion, access, and cozy, comfortable accommodations, the cabins at the Trinity River Adventure Inn are certainly among the best.'

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Steph Dutton is a world-renowned kayaker who paddled from Canada to Mexico, then paddled the Oregon coast again, in the winter. He also circumnavigated California's Channel Islands, often enduring thirty foot seas. Heidi Tiura owned and operated several businesses before running away to sea and working on tug boats in Alaska, Washington and Oregon. Steph and Heidi are both Coast Guard licensed masters (captains), and creators of Sanctuary Cruises on the Monterey Bay. They have been featured in numerous books and documentaries for their work with whales (including National Geographic's 'Whale Attack,' which was based on their Mother's Day 2004 whale watching cruise). Now, they live on the upper Trinity River and their kayak adventures are of a tamer sort. When not rafting or kayaking with their dogs and guests, they can usually be found on their motorcycles, because Trinity County has some of the best roads in the world for riding bikes. And if not riding their bikes, they're up at their Dunsmuir place, Alpine Ski & Fish Haus. For them, Dunsmuir is the Big City.
Why the Owner Chose Douglas City, California, United States of America:
Trinity County has the unbeatable combination of great natural beauty, incredible recreation opportunities, and it hasn't been overrun by tourists. People who have come here for twenty years remark at how little has changed. It is a spectacular place to explore.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Being on the river has to be one of the most relaxing things there is up here. Whether you fish, paddle, want to try the rope swing into the swimming hole, or just sit and watch the fish swim by, it is a wonderful escape to have a cabin right on the water.
