SMITH RIVER CABIN NESTLED IN THE REDWOODS - BREATHTAKING!

Crescent City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

Enjoy our secluded, rustic and comfortable cabin, nestled on 1.5 acres on the bank of the Wild and Scenic Smith River in the heart of Redwood National and State Parks. Experience the gorgeous and world-renowned 'Stout Grove' of ancient and majestic redwood trees just 3 miles up the road. There is a beautiful sandy swimming beach across the bridge, just minutes walking distance away.

The cabin has been our weekend retreat for 5 years, and we are ready to share it with others. International guests have called the Riverside Cabin the most beautiful place in the world they have ever stayed. There are 2 bedrooms, but our favorite place to stay is the king-sized trundle bed in the living room. You go to sleep by moonlight, and wake to the year-round waterfall out the window.

Our son's 40 lb King Salmon caught when he was 11, greets you as you enter the living room. Enjoy the hot tub and sauna for a late evening relaxation with a drink or an early morning pot of coffee. The waterfall and the 2000 year old redwood tree next to the deck are your view. Come and experience true relaxation in the fantasy 'Star War's', 'Return of the Jedi' location where Ewoks live and play amongst the world's tallest trees.

About Dennis and Becky Wood

We have lived in the Crescent City area for 30 years, and own All Creatures Animal Hospital & Bird Clinic. We have raised 6 wonderful children here and believe this to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. We lead a very busy life filled with faith, family, work, and community involvement, and understand the need for peace and total relaxation to renew the soul.

Dennis and Becky Wood purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Dennis and Becky Wood chose Crescent City

We purchased this property 8 years ago as a family retreat, 15 miles from our home and close enough for us to enjoy regularly. Our blood pressure drops 30 points every time we pull in the driveway, open the car door and smell the mountain and river air. Guests have been late to appointments and other engagements, because they couldn't bring themselves to leave in the morning. With all the joy it has brought to friends and acquaintances, we have decided to share it to a greater audience.

What makes this cabin unique

The peace and feeling of the wilderness are palpable. The beautiful clear waters of the Smith River below you and the sight and sound of the waterfall as you stand under the 2000 year old first growth redwood tree are almost surreal. The privacy of the hot tub and sauna in this setting is unmatched anywhere. Mornings and evenings by the wood fire are cozy and the possibility of a good movie with surround sound and a plate of hot cookies is too good to pass up!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Laid back. Magnificent setting. Family adventures 'round every turn. We loved it.

My family had the opportunity to stay at Denis & Becky's place for a week. Becky had cookies waiting and gave us a tour of the grounds when we arrived. The cabin is cozy and welcoming and completely charming. We cooked all of our meals in the well stocked kitchen and were so comfortable and relaxed our entire time there. There are so many trail heads within walking distance or very short drive and having a waterfall to greet you in the morning and say good night is something I've never experienced. Truly wonderful property in a wonderful part of the world.

Beautiful setting. Wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5
This property is in a gorgeous location looking over the Smith River. There are so many wonderful hikes and swimming and fishing spots within walking or short driving distance. The giant redwoods are spectacular and within biking distance. A fantastic location.

The house is very well equipped--plenty of towels and sheets and good cooking equipment, with a great BBQ and outdoor seating-- even a fire place. My only complaint-- a bit musty. Seems like there are some old decorative items in there that have seen better days and should be removed. I bet that would make the difference.

But I'm not fussy-- the view and the location more than made up for it. Owners were very nice and helpful. My husband and I went there to celebrate our 'empty nest' as our youngest headed to college and it was blissful. Recommend.

perfect!

This cabin was exactly what we were looking for. The location was gorgeous. The accommodations were cozy and had everything you could possibly want. It is pretty hard to describe sitting on a deck or in the hot tub with a redwood looming over you. Simply amazing. Whether it is hiking or relaxing with the sound of the Smith River in the background this is the place!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful stay. The others reviews described it perfectly, as well as the site and pictures.

The cabin felt so homey and welcoming when we got there. It was already dark when we arrived, so in the morning when we woke up it was so surprising! WHAT A VIEW! Definitely a beautiful location.

The outdoor hot tub was clean and perfect to combat the nice, chill mountain air. Lots of wood available to keep a fire going, and the kitchen was stocked up on all the basics for cooking (pots, pans, utensils- very handy!).

We definitely enjoyed our stay, and we will be trying to get our families to come for a family vacation!

Dissatisified

  • 1 of 5
My mom taught me. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. Well I have to warn other vacationers. The moldy smell was horrible. I was afraid I was going to get a lung infection or something. My husband and I rented the cabin for a week. If I could have, without loosing $, I would have left the next day. There were cobwebs hanging off the bedroom lamp and everywhere else. Dirt behind everything. Even someones old q-tip under the bed/couch in the living room. The Hot Tub jets only half worked and even those didn't work very well, no pressure. The sauna was nice. The wood was soaking wet and could hardly keep a fire going. By the way 1/2 my home is heated with wood I know how It should be. I will not ever be back here again. I will bet I will never see this review on their website. But I think the people (VBRO) who list it should actually go there and smell it! Soooooooo BAD! I travel every year to some vacation rental or other, I have had time shares. But I can not tell you how disappointed I was when we got there and walked in and the moldy smell hit me like a wall. I do not believe the VRBO will be a company I will use again if this type of accommodations they endorse.
