We came up July 2nd and stayed through the 4th - it was hot (~90), but the cabin stayed relatively cool during the day especially with the ceiling fans going. Fortunately the mornings and evenings cooled down so we could open the windows to enjoy the night air.
The Fish Inn is in a great location a few hundred yards from Hat Creek, close to campgrounds, Subway caves, volcanic wonders, and of course fishing! The cabin is very well equipped with linens, dishes, pots, pans, glassware, utensils, etc. Ray and Joann are superb hosts, very personable, and available if you need anything or if somethig goes awry (fortunately nothing went awry for us!).
Here's the best part about the Fish Inn -it's pet friendly. And I'm not just talking about your average 80lb and under dog. This is the place for large dogs. We own two English Mastiffs and lodging with them is difficult because most places that claim to be pet friendly have a weight limit, usually no more than 80 pounds. We chatted with Ray and Joann on the front porch with our dogs laying comfortably on the deck and looking very regal. Ray and Joann didn't even bat an eyelash with our two large dogs being there.
The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it was hot (understandably so for July) and the master bedroom doesn't have a ceiling fan. The window faces east, so it doesn't get the cool afternoon/evening breezes like the living room or other bedroom. It does have a portable fan which my husband rummaged out of the closet to cool us down. Despite the heat, we'd definately come back for a future visits - we're even thinking of coming in early November for our anniversary.
Thank you for providing a wonderful, central location Ray and Joann.
