BEAUTIFUL 2 STORY HOUSE ON SMITH RIVER- PRIVATE BEACH, TRAILS,& MORE!

Crescent City House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 9-13)

A gorgeous drive along the South Fork of the Smith River gets you to this luxurious river side house located in an area named 'Big Flat' as it is a big flat area high in the mountains where the inland tribes gathered to meet the coastal tribes. Rich in natural history and scenic beauty, this is the type of place one wants to check in, and 'check out'. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of the river rushing by as well as a multitude of songbirds and miles of majestic wilderness, there is opportunity for swimming, rafting, tubing, hiking, cycling, fishing, kayaking or just laying on the river view deck soaking up the sun in summer or snuggling by the fire in colder months.

The house affords the ability to rough it in great comfort as it has full amenities while being off the grid, we have equipped it with solar power and propane appliances.Due to the solar power system capacity--- microwaves,toasters,hairdriers and other resistance appliances will drain the system.

In addition to the river being on the property there are several small lakes with good fishing that can be driven to. Also there are several lakes that are good backpack trips in the higher mountains.We also have a trail head to the Kelsey trail near the house. The Kelsey trail is part of the Pacific Crest trail.For more information see the Six Rivers National Forest map....many things to do.....if you see a bear just make some noise and he will run away......harmless......just don`t leave tasty smelling food out that would attract them......Jim

remember.....no hairdriers,microwaves,toasters or toaster ovens,waffle irons or electric skillets...we are on a solar system....for lights mainly......

Absolutely loved this place

My wife and I spent a few days here to get away from it all...this place is perfect for just such a retreat. No road noise, no rowdy neighbors, no city smog. Just the serene sound of the rushing creek below and an incredible view of it from above. The house is beautifully crafted and the wood burning stove/fireplace tops off the coziness of the whole experience.
Jim (owner) led us out to the property on the night of our arrival and made sure all of our questions were answered before taking off. Very friendly and accommodating.
I cannot recommend this place enough; I'm really looking forward to going here next time with our kids!

The cabin is beautifully constructed, loved the windows, the smell of the wood used to build cabin and the sound of the river below. It is 25 mins from Jed State Park where the Big Ones are! If you want to get away from it all...this is your destination.

We had a great time at your cabin. It was beautiful, relaxing, and just what the family needed. The river got a lot of use during the week. Thanks for everything. We hope to be back again sometime.

We had an awesome time!

My Dad and I spent several days at Jim's River Retreat and we had an awesome time! Being tucked in the woods with the Smith River and the two waterfalls just out the door provided a soothing escape for us. There are rapids located in front of the cabin and you can always hear the sound of the river rumbling over the rocks, it lulls you to sleep very nicely.

We used the wood stove every evening and thoroughly enjoyed our first off the grid living experience!

If you want to escape from the crowds and enjoy the wilderness while still having the comforts of home this is the place!

We'll definitely be back!

Surpassed Our Expectations

Jim,

Just wanted to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations and stay on the Smith River. We prepared all of our evening meals there at the cabin. The visit to the river was worth the climb back up.

Everything was top notch. Pleasantly and Enjoyably, the word burning stove got plenty of use.

It is plain to see that you put considerable thought into making your guest's stay a very enjoyable experience. We wanted for Nothing. You were a Great Host.

Again -- A very pleasurable and enjoyable time in your secluded spot on the planet. Highly Recommended.

Extending our Thanks and Appreciation,

Gary and Gary
Owner's Response: Thanks.Gary...come again...Jim

Here, almost from the moment you arrive, you are immersed in the splendor of nature at her most extravagant. Each path leads to a breathtaking world of contrasts - tiny flowers in the shadow of the world's largest trees, the silent grace of a solitary pelican dippings its wings the pounding surf, morning mists evaporating in the warmth of the sun. Del Norte County is all this and more. Unspoiled and unlike any other place on earth, Del Norte County is an experience in nature, both on her own terms AND in the many ways the natural environment shapes and directs the County's unique lifestyle.The google map is not accurate in showing where the house is.....house is on the Smith river and the 12 acre property actually crosses the river.....river sounds all day and nite....one of my most favorite spots on the planet......you will enjoy if you love nature and clean everything.....and remember we have wild friends around the house.From deer to bears that are very afriad of humans....so if you see one just make some noise and they will run away fast.....may look scary but totally harmless......Jim Matthews...owner

Other Activities: kayaking, rock climbing, horseshoes, shelling. fishing,swiming,beach combing,hiking trails,seeing Redwoods
