The Historic Carriage House
February Special & Multiple Night Discounts Below!
The 4th of July is usually booked by one party that takes the Carriage House, Miner's and Alpen Glow, but they had to cancel for 2014. This means that so far, the entire property is available for one large party.
This is a really comfortable, rustic cabin that looks out on the Trinity River from a dandy covered porch complete with a dining set and lounge chairs. Inside, you'll find 1 bedroom with a queen log bed; a full bath and a full kitchen. There is a wood stove (wood provided) as well as gas and electric heat. The cedar-paneled living room has a full-sized couch and loveseat which face the wood stove and a twin-sized captain's bed.
February Special: Book 3 or more nights and get one night free. Request the special when you call.
Not available with Book It Now (call us to reserve).
Prime Season Multiple Night Discounts: $170 1-2 nights; $160 304 nights; $149 5 or more nights.
Quiet Season Discounts (between Presidents Day and Memorial Day weekends): $149 for 1-2 nights; $135 3-4 nights; $120 5 or more nights.
Watch TV on the couch and loveseat, or from the dining table. Use the well-lighted antique secretary to tie flies or cruise the internet.
You'll enjoy the shady porch overlooking the Trinity. It has a mister for hot days. The vast lawn between you and the river is perfect for playing ball with the kids, dogs or both.
Dragonfly is a standalone cabin next to the Carriage House, which can be rented only with the Carriage House and adds an extra bedroom with a double bed and whimsical dragonfly decor.
We also have a 29' trailer near the Carriage House which may only be rented by Carriage House guests, adding lodging for up to 4 more guests. It offers a king-sized bed in the private bedroom, and the dinette folds into a queen-sized bed. The trailer has a bathroom with a toilet and shower. The trailer rents for $75 per night for 1-2 guests. Although our cabins are fully furnished and all linens and bedding are included, trailer guests do need to bring sleeping bags, towels and pillows. There is a $20 cleaning fee for the trailer.
The Carriage House has received a lot of attention this past year. Some of it is large, some smaller, but it all adds up to an even more comforting escape for you. We paved the entire driveway, which means no dust from vehicles arriving or leaving. Plus, we installed a large parking lot at the entrance to our property. Guests can arrive, unload their vehicles, and leave them in the lot, which is also perfect for drift boats and rafts. The kitchen got cheerful yellow paint, a stainless sink and new faucet. We put in hardwood laminate flooring in the living room and dining area. There's a newly tiled bathroom floor, and a new vanity and sink.
Trinity River Adventure Inn's Carriage House is an historic carriage house from the Vitzthum homestead converted into a wonderful cabin.
Not all vacation rentals are alike. Our cabins are owned and maintained by us. If you need us, we are here for you. This is worth considering, because nothing is worse than having a problem and calling a long-distance property owner. We know, because it happens up here all the time.
The Carriage House is one of our four great cabins on 1 1/2 private acres off Steel Bridge Road near Douglas City. Cabins range from the romantic 'Miner's Cabin' @ $155/night to a grand 3BR/2BA A frame with lots of sleeping options @ $305/night (one of the most spectacular views EVER from the River Loft). Rates drop with multiple night stays, but we have no minimum stay. Each cabin has its own feel and plenty of privacy, plus you can rent all of the cabins for a wedding, reunion or company gathering.
The Carriage House is all one level; perfect for strollers and wheelchairs. The deep front porch is excellent for fishing gear and waders.
There can be great fishing from your bank. Fish the salmon hole; wade downstream to the steelhead riffles. This is one of four cabins that can accommodate a large party, but each is well-separated from the others. No minimum stay.
Michael Caranci, FFF Certified Master Instructor with The Fly Shop in Redding, CA says:
'As a long time Trinity River angler and guide, and the Director of Outfitters for The Fly Shop in Redding, I've had the opportunity over the years to visit many of the different motels, lodges, and cabins along the Trinity River. For sheer seclusion, access, and cozy, comfortable accommodations, the cabins at the Trinity River Adventure Inn are certainly among the best.'
The large, deep, covered back porch looks out on the Trinity River, which is accessed at the edge of the lawn (2 steps down from cabin to porch). It has a glass and wicker dining set for 4 plus many other seating options. There is a fog mister to cool down hot summer days and it's delightful for playing cards, reading or just watching the river go by.
The adjoining one room 'Dragonfly' cabin may be rented with the Carriage, or not. It is only available to renters of the Carriage and has a double bed and whimsical dragonfly decor. There is a high-fenced, private dog yard between the Carriage and Dragonfly.
Friendly dogs can run free and have a ball playing in the river, which is famous for salmon, steelhead and trout. The entire interior of the cabin is solid cedar and there are many warm touches in the decor such as a wood stove (wood provided); horse collar mirror; leather couch and loveseat; oak dining set inside; wicker/glass dining set outside; and an antique oak secretary with a great light, perfect for tying flies. Bring your MP3/ipod! Stereo docking stations are in the cabin and include a patch cord to accommodate any MP3.

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 operated 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 (captains), 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 dogs and guests, they can usually be found on their motorcycles, because Trinity County has some of the best roads in the world for riding bikes.
And if not riding their bikes, they're up at their Dunsmuir place, Alpine Ski & Fish Haus. For them, Dunsmuir is the Big City.
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.
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.
Sit-on-top kayak and raft rentals available on site! Lessons & guided tours are our specialty; we teach kids and dogs
