The Miner's Cabin is a knockout and very popular. In case our calendar is full the dates you'd like, contact us, Heidi & Steph, as we have several more cabins that could work for you. We have a generous multiple night discount, especially Sunday-Thursday, and we have a really great weekly rate, but your best price will always come from contacting us direct.
Click on the right for our phone number and call us for special rates for 3 or more nights, or click on the email link and drop us a line.
Our response rate is actually far faster than noted here (usually no more than and hour or two), because many guests contact us direct and we sometimes don't respond to the automatically generated email from VRBO.
In one word, the Miner's is enchanting. Fish the famed and very productive Guardrail Steelhead Riffles mere feet from this cabin! It's a genuine miner's cabin that sits on the Trinity River and has world class fishing and views. On an acre and a quarter with three of our other cabins, the Miner's is situated in a grove of trees all by itself. It's romantic, private, has its own river rock landing with a fire pit/BBQ, unique beyond words and the views from each window are marvelous.
Compared to a luxury hotel, this is camping. Compared to camping, this is luxury. The kitchenette area includes a single-cup coffee maker with K-Cup coffees & creamers (regular coffee maker by request); toaster oven, microwave, large and deep electric skillet, Crock Pot, and a dorm-sized refrigerator. Outside on the covered river porch, you'll find a table and chairs as well as a very large cooler with frozen water jugs for cooling. You may bring and use a camp stove out there.
The decor is rich and rustic, with antiques and nice touches everywhere. The living area has a double rocker, an oak twin captain's bed/couch with drawers underneath, a small chest of drawers and an antique chest/table with games and cards inside. There is a small dining table that has one fold-out leaf and 2 stools. The dining set can be rolled where you like (including out on the river porch). There is a lighted ceiling fan, a faux wood stove heater that looks like the real thing but without the fire danger, and an electric baseboard heater. There is a folding indoor/outdoor table that is also a checkerboard (checkers in side pocket). The bathroom has an all-in-one shower & toilet (the shower is to the side of the toilet). There is a clock/ipod/MP3 player.
The loft is accessed by a wide, slanted, permanently-installed ladder. It has a plush queen bed guests really enjoy, a small dresser and a bookshelf with interesting books, including one that tells the story of your hosts' work with whales (chapter 10/Eye of the Whale). Guests rave over the custom windows and their views.
The Miner's Landing is a fantastic river rock patio between the Miner's and the river, and it's only for the Miner's guests. It has a fire pit with BBQ grill (wood provided); Adirondack chairs and a stunning large serpentine rock that serves as a small table. Reviews are astounding for the Miner's and it is exceptionally popular.
Guests at the Miner's have their own covered parking spot close to their cabin. They enjoy full use of the grounds, including the swimming hole and the gas grill and Weber BBQ patio up the trail between Alpen Glow and the Carriage House. Look at all of the pictures. You'll know if you're the kind of person who will love it. Most do.
Fish right outside your door; this is one of the closest cabins to the Trinity on the entire river. The Miner's Cabin is just a few feet above the Trinity River. It was a real miner's cabin during the Gold Rush and has been lovingly restored and enhanced, because not too many miners' cabins had indoor plumbing. Fishers go crazy over this cabin and non-fishers who just want to hang out with a good book do as well.
Fall through winter, the steelhead fishery is fantastic. Summer-fall is salmon season on the Trinity, and we have a salmon hole on the property. The river and Lewiston Lake feature trout fishing, too.
We installed a large parking lot at the entrance to our property that's perfect for drift boats and rafts. The main drive is paved. Be aware highway 299 goes by up the mountain a bit and over a berm. You will hear vehicles on it, but they aren't constant and it quiets down a lot at night.
The Miner's is one of our 5 great, dog-friendly river cabins that range all the way from the grand Alpen Glow, a 3BR/2BA A-frame starting @ $275.00/night to a 3BR/2BA cabin perfect for large fishing groups @ $165/night (multiple night discounts available). We also have an ultra-private 2 bedroom/1 bath cabin farther out Steel Bridge Road with use of the river lot across the quiet road (call for details).
Michael Caranci of The Fly Shop in Redding says of our cabins:
'For sheer seclusion, access, and cozy, comfortable accommodations, the cabins at the Trinity River Adventure Inn are certainly among the best!'
We offer sit-on-top kayak lessons, guided trips and rentals; guided raft trips and rentals; and stand-up paddleboard (SUP) demos (which are free), lessons and rentals. We have inflatable SUPs and hard boards, which are both great for the lakes.

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 ran 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, 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 guests, they can usually be found on their motorcycles, because Trinity County has the best roads for riding bikes.
Why the Owner Chose Douglas City, CA, USA:
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.
