New Vacation Rental as starting April 2015! Riversong 5 acre Retreat on the Trinity River - Magnificent Lodge, Cabin & Rustic Bunkhouse - Easy walk to the River, secluded, beautiful views. Sleeps 12 total. Located in Salyer just 5 minutes from Willow Creek. This is perfect for an extended family, a few families, friends, or a group that wants to get away to a beautiful, river getaway. This 5 acre estate has three places for you to stay (the lodge, cabin, and rustic bunkhouse), all of which are included in the rent and fees (unless other arrangements are made). We only rent out the entire retreat. The Lodge is a perfect gathering place for meals and evenings - Expansive kitchen and counters, perfect dining room, living room with beautiful fireplace, and of course the expansive outdoor, covered porch overlooking the river, hills and woods. The lodge also has a King Suite that includes a king bedroom with river views has sliding glass doors to the porch, a seating area, and full bath with a custom granite tiled shower and clawfoot tub. Then, about 200 ft from the lodge is the one bedroom cabin that also has nice river views, a living room and eating area, kitchen, and full bath. We supply two queen air mattresses - one could be put in here in the living room, to sleep a total of 4 people, or the two of them could be added to the rustic bunkhouse. The rustic bunkhouse is just behind the cabin. It has a nice, full bath and a big open room with two queen beds and you could put the queen air mattresses in here as well. The flooring is made of old, repurposed wood and not airtight - definitely a rustic setting - but wonderful!
As you can see from the photos you can drive or walk down to the river from the property as well - lots of space to set up chairs & towels and enjoy the sunny days! The walk down to the river from the house is a gentle decline and is about 300 ft. You may want to bring your own rafts, etc, as well. For people with river boats, you could drive all the way down to the river's edge. The river can be very strong with lots of current so please be very careful when playing in and around the water and never leave children unattended.

This home is just about 5 minutes outside of Willow Creek right on the Trinity River. Trinity River can be great fun for swimming, fishing, tubing, and just relaxing. Willow Creek has rafting companies and various restaurants and a market for food, etc. Of course it goes without saying that this is the home of Bigfoot and we have a Bigfoot Museum to prove it! Also happening every September in Willow Creek is Bigfoot Days, a super fun festival celebrating the local legend. Lots of great hiking nearby and plenty of state and federal parks. And, you are less than 50 minutes away from Arcata and the coast. Great day trips to the beaches of Trinidad or the Lagoons (kayak rentals available at Stone Lagoon through (website hidden)) and Prairie Creek Redwoods National Park, which includes Fern Canyon and over one hundred miles of trails through the majestic Redwoods, Lady Bird Johnson Park, Talls Trees trail to Redwood Creek, and plenty of wildlife including Roosevelt Elk, is about 45 minutes from Arcata. You can also head south to Victorian Ferndale, Old Town Eureka, Sequoia Zoo and the Fairgrounds. Don't miss the annual Taste of Willow Creek festival which is a great event featuring wine tasting, craft booths and hors d'oeuvres, exiting events, activities and food offerings.
You will need a vehicle to get to and from this property.
