Overview

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.

Notes:
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.

Boy's weekend exploring the Klammath river valley

  • 5 of 5

My 18 YO son and myself left the girls behind for a boys weekend out of town.

We couldn't have been more happy with the cabin which was clean, comfortable, quiet, and full of vintage charm. A great central location made a perfect base for exploring the area. We took day trips out every day, exploring the mountains that surround the cabin in all directions on our mountain bikes, and even spent a day in the redwoods on the coast. A bit of a drive but well worth it.

Nina and Max couldn't have been nicer, and we made good friends with their trusty dog (I thing his name is Ruffy), who stood watch over the property and was always there to greet us even when we got back late at night. I highly recommend this cabin. Nice folks, nice cabin, great location. We'll be back.

The property is beautiful!

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!
