'The Historic Carriage House'
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. Just as the Miner's cabin downstream of the Carriage House has gotten a new living space outside, so has the Carriage. Steph carved a spot out of the vegetation closer to the river for a private campfire spot, just for Carriage Guests.
This is a neat, rustic cabin with 1BR/full bath/full kitchen, wood stove, captain's bed and full-sized couch as well as love seat in living room, and it has standalone Dragonfly next to it, which can be rented only with the Carriage House and adds an extra bedroom. It is right on the river; raft, drift boat or kayak to your cabin. Enjoy the shady porch overlooking the Trinity.
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' @ $145/night to a grand 3BR/2BA A frame with lots of sleeping options @ $285/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.
