Douglas City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

FREE introductory stand-up paddle board lessons are available at our riverfront cabin 6 miles away! We're on a calm, wide stretch that's perfect for trying this wonderful sport that gives you an excellent workout while letting you explore. SUP rentals for lake use.

We have discounts for stays of 3 or more nights, so contact us for a quote.



In one word, the Miner's is enchanting. It's a one room cabin that sits mere feet from the Trinity River and has world class views and fishing.

Multiple Night Discounts:

Regular Season: $155 for 1-2 nights; $145 3-4 nights; $135 5 nights or more.

Quiet Season (between Presidents Day and Memorial Day Weekend): $145 1-2 nights; $135 3-4 nights; $125 5 or more nights.

Compared to camping, this is luxury. Compared to a luxury hotel, this is camping. Look at all of the pictures and our video (Miner's is last on the Steel Bridge cabins' video) and you'll know if you're the kind of person who will love it. Most do.

The loft is accessed by a wide, slanted, permanently-installed ladder. It has a plush queen bed guests really enjoy, a small dresser and a bookshelf with interesting books, including one that tells the story of your hosts' work with whales (chapter 10/Eye of the Whale).

The covered river porch looks out on the very close river and has a small table and two chairs. The living area has a double rocker, an oak twin captain's bed/couch with drawers underneath, a small chest of drawers and an antique chest/table.

There is a small dining table that has one fold-out leaf and 2 stools. The dining set can be rolled where you like (including out on the river porch). There also is a great hammock cot for use inside or out.

On an acre and a quarter with three of our other cabins, the Miner's is situated in a grove of trees all by itself. It's romantic, private, unique beyond words and the views from each window are marvelous.

The decor is rich and rustic, with antiques and nice touches everywhere. There is a lighted fan, a faux wood stove heater that looks like the real thing but without the fire danger, and an electric baseboard heater. It has an ipod/MP3 docking station.

Kitchenette area includes a Keurig single-cup coffee maker with K-Cup coffees; toaster oven, microwave, deep electric skillet and a dorm-sized refrigerator. Outside on the covered porch, you'll find a very large cooler with frozen water jugs for cooling.

The bathroom has an all-in-one shower & toilet (the shower is to the side of the toilet & sprays over the toilet). Guests at the Miner's have full use of the grounds, including the gas grill and Weber BBQ patio.

Fish right outside your door; this is one of the closest cabins to the Trinity on the entire river. The Miner's Cabin is just a few feet above the Trinity River. It was a real miner's cabin during the Gold Rush and has been lovingly restored and enhanced, because not too many miners had indoor plumbing. Fishers go crazy over this cabin and non-fishers who just want to hang out with a good book do as well.

In winter, the steelhead fishery is fantastic. Summer-fall is salmon season on the Trinity, and we have a salmon hole on the property. Productive, renowned riffles (Guardrail) are in wading distance from the Miner's. The river and Lewiston Lake feature year-round trout fishing, too.

Spring 2013, we put in the Miner's Landing, a fantastic river rock patio between the Miner's and the river. There is a fire pit with BBQ grill (wood provided); Adirondack chairs; a stunning large serpentine rock that serves as a table; and room for the hammock cot! Reviews have been astounding for the Landing and the Miner's.

A portable swamp cooler makes our hot summers a lot easier to handle. We installed a large parking lot at the entrance to our property that's perfect for drift boats and rafts. The main drive is paved.

The Miner's is one of our 5 great, dog-friendly river cabins that range all the way from the grand Alpen Glow, a 3BR/2BA A-frame starting @ $305.00/night to a 3BR/2BA cabin perfect for large fishing groups @ $170/night (multiple night discounts available).

Michael Caranci of The Fly Shop in Redding says of our cabins:

'For sheer seclusion, access, and cozy, comfortable accommodations, the cabins at the Trinity River Adventure Inn are certainly among the best!'

We offer sit-on-top kayak lessons & sales, guided trips and rentals, as well as raft rentals.

About Heidi & Steph

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 ran 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, 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 guests, they can usually be found on their motorcycles, because Trinity County has the best roads for riding bikes.

Heidi & Steph purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Heidi & Steph chose Douglas 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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back! It was great being able to bring the dogs with us, too! Thanks for being such great hosts. Until next time!

Solitude and seclusion

  • 5 of 5
With a fishing weekend in mind, I had selected Miner's cabin for it's proximity to the Trinity River and it's rustic atmosphere and simplicity. It was everything I expected and more.

The weather was quite warm and not conducive to spending many hours on the river. However, this cabin is a great base for exploring the area and for other diversions to fill the hours. Sitting on the porch viewing the wildlife and watching the river slip by, one feels the pressures and stress of life slip away to be replaced by an alternate world in which relaxation and pleasure are foremost activities.

Be certain to open the many windows as the sun drops behind the hills to feel the cool of the night chase away the heat of the day and to hear the soft sighs of the evening breeze.

If you desire a place of solitude and seclusion to robe yourself in comfort and daydream away the hours, this is the place.

Owner's Response: Steph and I were thrilled to read Randy's poetic review of the Miner's. It has to be the most lyrical review one of our cabins has ever gotten. We love it too, and are always happy when others do.
I feel I need to remind prospective guests that highway 299 does go by up the hill and over a berm, and that you do hear traffic on it. It's not constant, and drops down to almost nothing in the evenings and overnight, but the river sounds and birdsong more than make for it with most guests.

Best Little Cabin Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived Friday early evening to a beautiful cabin. Once we pulled off 299 our clutch in our car went out we were able to coast to our parking spot. The owners Steph & Heidi are the best! They took my husband to the local store the next day for ice and beverages and even offered to take my boys to the bridge so they could float back down to our little cabin since we had no way of leaving the cabin until Sunday when my Dad drove up with a car trailer to tow us home.
The view, the fishing, the location everything is beautiful. We will absolutely stay here again.
P.S. The beds and sheets were AMAZING!.
Thank you for letting us rent this little piece of paradise :)

Owner's Response: It would have been such a bummer if you guys didn't have your necessities for your mini-vacation, so it was our pleasure to help out. Really glad you enjoyed the Miner's (my idea of heaven) and that everything worked out. Also love the fact you enjoyed the sheets! We have them in all our places because they are so nice. Have a great rest of summer! heidi & Steph

Our two day Fathers Day visit to Miners Cabin will be remembered as one of our very best getaways. The cabin is small, suitable for no more than three occupants (not counting our two dogs). The riverfront location is superb and the furnishings quite comfortable. Those elements alone would have made our trip "fun" but what made it "outstanding" were our hosts, Heidi&Steph (and their two dogs.)
Put simply, they went out of their way to anticipate our every need, served delicious dinners on the patio of their home, sent us back to Miners Cabin with home-made breakfasts, and served up an excellent lunch on our raft/kayak trip. As if this were not enough, they are truly the most interesting and cordial hosts we have ever experienced. We are already planning a return visit.
As Heidi's telephone greeting says: "You're gonna LOVE IT!!!! Believe it.

The Miner's cabin was the perfect getaway for me and my 2 big 'ole dogs. It was like dog camp without the Kumbaya. We could see the huge fish jumping out of the water and it would be a race to see if the angler or the dogs made it to the fish first. We hiked locally, snoozed on the huge lawn, and spent many hours on the porch looking at the mist in the pines. The cabin was very comfortable, spotless and attractive. Steph and Heidi were perfect hosts and had plenty of information on what to do and where to do it. I really recommend visiting here if you need to get away, with or without dogs! (Thanks to both of you!)
