About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

What makes this cabin unique

Our area is rich with wildlife and we are blessed with clean creeks and rivers. Swimming in nearby Dillon Creek or the Salmon River is a great summer treat. Fishing for steelhead and salmon in the Fall and Winter are popular activities. Often times in Winter and Spring, herds of elk are visible in your back yard or the adjacent homestead meadow.

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.

Nena was more than helpful! She let us know the best river accesses. There are driving trails if you follow the road leading to the cabin. They are awesome. The views are astounding. We will definitely be coming back.

Great rustic cabin

  • 5 of 5

You are definitely away from civilization and off the grid at Nena and Max's cabin. Plan for total disconnection from cell phone networks unless you fancy a drive to Happy Camp.

The cabin is spacious for four people and has a real kitchen. There is a traveling menagerie of two dogs and a mule roaming the property.

It's a great base for hiking and cycling in the area. The cabin is a couple miles up a hill, off the main road, with a couple small gravel sections. It's doable on a road bike.

Nice rafting opportunities nearby on the Salmon River as well. Drop in to the Salmon River Outpost for groceries.

Quiet, cozy, in natural setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in this peaceful spot. Everything was clean, nicely set up and the hosts were honest and friendly. I have stayed in several places near the Klamath River in Northern California, and I prefer this cabin above all the other lodging in the area. I will definitely rent this cabin again . . . and probably sooner than later!

Great Cabin in the Middle of the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for three nights with four other friends. We all felt like we received the "cabin experience" we were hoping for. There is a nice screened in porch, a large family room with two single beds and a wide couch that can easily be used as another single bed. There is one bathroom with a fully functioning shower and sink with hot water. In addition to the single beds in the family room, there is a double bed in a separate more private room as well. All sheets, blankets, pillows were provided. The kitchen had a full size refrigerator/freezer, stove top, and oven. After the visit, our group decided that we had packed way too many things since almost everything was provided in this cabin. Out back, there was a patio with a fireplace and cooking grate. Wood was free of charge and easily accessible. All in all, a great cabin with everything needed for a fun stay.

The location of the cabin was perfect as well. We had not planned any activities prior to arriving at the cabin, but we had no trouble finding things to do. The cabin is 5-10 minute drive from the Klamath and Salmon Rivers. Both rivers had multiple water access trails that made it easy to find a suitable place for steelehead trout fishing. We were happy to end up catching a few rainbow trout given that we were novice trout fisherman. We did not do too much hiking on pre-stablished trails, but there were definitely trails nearby the cabin.

The most memorable moment of our stay was when Max and Nena came over for a night and brought delicious smoked salmon and popcorn. They shared their life stories and the history of the surrounding area. We all had a great time talking, drinking, and eating in the warmth of the cabin. All five of us in our group would highly recommend Max and Nena's cabin.
