This property has been in our family for over 35 years. Three generations have been privileged to spend family time together enjoying the beautiful Smith River and all the outdoor activities it has to offer.
The proximity to such a diverse terrain is incredible. Great hiking in the giant redwoods. Rafting and Kayaking from Jedediah Smith National Park to your front yard is priceless. Crabing and Claming on the beaches of Northern California and Southern Oregon are at your fingertips. Nature abounds.
We loved the house and the backyard.View is beautiful, you can see river from almost all the rooms in the house. We couldn't really swim in the river because the weather was not cooperating, it was cool and cloudy most of the week, but we waded and crossed to the other side one day,water was very pleasant, not too cold.Backyard is very peaceful and relaxing,we had cofee at the deck overlooking redwood trees, berry bushes and beautiful river every morning. We used the firepit most nights, owners provided plenty of wood and fire starter. House is very comfortable, beds are great, kitchen is well equipped with lots of extras, like spices, condiments, etc.Location is great, close to ocean and great hiking. Don't miss Howland Hill Rd and Whaleshead beach and its forest trail.Too bad we couldn't stay longer. Definitely worth almost 8 hour drive, gorgeous area to visit.
The "River House" is the perfect place for a family get away. Our family of 4 was very comfortable. The location is breathtaking, and the house was very welcoming. It is isolated enough to feel private, yet is close to amenities, such as restaurants, bowling, movies, the beach, and most of all, countless hiking trails.
Very welcoming. The pictures are exactly what you see. The house is nice and very well stocked. Lots to do or if relaxing is what youre looking for, then look no further. Had a wonderful time and would love to go back in the near future. Was hoping to see more wild life, squirrels, birds etc. but the insects were in abundance. Tis the season, I'm sure. Great time had by all...Thank you
The location and view are both exceptional! Extremely well furnished for inside and outside activites. Very close to Jedediah Smith State Park and redwood groves. The home is very clean and comfortable and loaded with amenities. Highly recommend, and we will definitely schedule another vacation there. Wonderful experience!!
Nicely equipped kitchen, entire house clean and spacious. Great river views and beautiful landscaping.
We had an excellent time at the River House. The house was very clean and well stocked, and the deck, fire pit and the grounds right on the river was amazing! We had perfect weather and took advantage of all the area had to offer, but were always anxious to get back to enjoy the deck and fire pit! Our dogs loved the property as well, and we were very grateful that they were welcomed! Thanks for an awesome stay...we will be back!!
my wife and I stayed there in late April. Place was very nice. It is in a quiet neighborhood with garage and large driveway. It is steps to the smith river and the view is priceless. The home is a little dated as far as the carpet, kitchen etc (That basically would be my only small negative). There are 2 large rooms that have TV's in both rooms. The 2 bedrooms are nice size with plenty of storage. There was plenty of kitchen utensils and we did cook our own dinners there each night. As far as location though you really can't beat it. I can see that the owners try very hard to provide stuff (i.e. ping pong tables, fishing rods, horseshoes and more). The owners responded promptly to my request to rent their place and I would highly recommend this listing.
