Overview

Gasquet Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed/2 Bath Cabin In The Woods

Get away and relax at our clean, comfortable Cabin in the woods. The Cabin will accommodate up to six people. The living room offers a queen size sleeper sofa, with a comfortable conform foam mattress. It also has a 27' TV with a DVD/VHS player and Dish TV with Sirius radio. The master bedroom has a king size bed, Dish TV with Sirius radio and a DVD/VHS player. There is a twin over queen bunk bed in the second bedroom (top bed has a 150 pound weight limit). The kitchen is fully stocked (no dishwasher) to accommodate up to six people. For the first morning enjoy complimentary gourmet coffee or tea by the wood stove or the pond. Have a BBQ or just relax on the large wrap around deck, surrounded by large Douglas Fir, Cedar, Madrone, wild Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Iris. The grounds are in an all-natural setting on ¾ of an acre, with easy access, just off Hwy 199 in Gasquet. The property is completely fenced for your privacy. The Cabin is in a remote area so cell phone reception is variable depending on your service provider and phone. There is a land-line available for your vacation purposes, but long distance calls are restricted, so you may want to bring a calling card.

There are many times when it's foggy at the coast but it's sunny at The Cabin! It's just a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive to the pristine Smith River. It’s the largest free-flowing (no dams) river in the state, producing the largest Steelhead and Chinook salmon.

From The Cabin it’s just 11 miles on scenic Hwy 199 to Redwood National Park and Jedidiah Smith Redwood State Park. Some of the tallest trees in the world reside here and there are many trails to explore. Drive or bike through Redwood National Park on unpaved Howland Hill Rd. There are massive Redwood trees!

Like the ocean? We’re only 22 miles away as you drive through the Redwoods and Crescent City. In Crescent City there is Battery Point Lighthouse. In fact, there are many lighthouses along the coast. There is a great view from these lighthouses to do some whale watching. Gray whales migrate from December through May. You may also see Orcas and Humpback whales. Northern California and Oregon have some of the most beautiful coastlines. Yet, on those foggy coastal days, Gasquet is usually in the sunshine.

Great Fishing -- Along with Steelhead and Chinook, the Smith also has runs of Silver salmon, Coho and sea-run cutthroat trout. The Chinook runs start in late August, going through late December, with its peak in November. Steelhead starts their runs in early December and goes through March, with their peak in January. The Smith River flows through some of the most beautiful scenery in California. From Six Rivers National Forest through Jedediah State Park, people say that it’s hard to decide which is better, the scenery or the fishing.

Please visit our other rental, The Ranch House, at www.vrbo.com/499907. It's located just outside the Historical town of Jacksonville Oregon.

About Diane Moller

I grew up in New York, Diane grew up in L.A. We both moved to the general area because we both love the mountains, the ocean and the many rivers that run through here. When we decided to get married we had to get more property for Diane's horses. So I had to leave this beautiful property...but now we get to visit it!

Diane Moller purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Diane Moller chose Gasquet

I was renting a place in Crescent City but I wanted to own my own house. Even though I worked in Crescent City it was too expensive to buy there. So I checked out other possibilities and came across The Cabin. After buying it and living here, I realized what a gem I had. I can take my Jeep on the many logging roads and get the views of the snow covered mountains and the ocean. I can walk to the Smith River. Then there's the massive Redwoods just minutes away and of course the coast. And when Crescent City is fogged in The Cabin is usually in the sunshine!

What makes this cabin unique

I drove to Crescent City to work 5 days a week and when it was foggy at the coast, I would just drive into the sunshine when I came to Gasquet. Then I could relax on the large deck in the woods overlooking the little pond.....so rejuvenating!

Trip Cs....Cozy, cute, and charming!

  • 5 of 5
Owner is very communicative and gave detailed instructions. We were a group of young professionals from the SF Bay Area. When we first drove in, we were impressed with the private lot, deck and the surroundings. The cabin is VERY well-maintained. It looked fairly new or recently renovated. The first thing we did was try out the wood-stove (with free wood!) The layout of the cabin is perfect for cooking and entertaining. The kitchen is FULLY stocked with seasonings/pots/pans/dishes. There are even movies and cds in the TV cabinet. Nothing like coming back after a long-hike in the Redwoods to a wood-stove and wine!! (we brought the wine)

We all wished we had planned an extra night. Wish it was closer than 7hrs away so we can visit often. It's such a fantastic value. Great for families and people seeking an escape from technology!

40th anniversary

I wanted to plan a special trip for our anniversary, and I wanted it to be somewhere new to us. The Cabin was a perfect location, had everything we needed, and we will come back. The owner was easy to work with, and her directions were perfect. We hope to stay longer next time!!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5, including 3 children 8 and under, had a wonderful time at the cabin. The cabin had everything we needed to relax. It truly is a short walk to the river and only a few minutes drive to the majestic Stout Grove. The owner was great to deal with, even returning a forgotten item for us. The cabin definitely had more than we expected for comforts. We are going back again and hopefully for a longer stay this time.

All things considered, this was the best place we've stayed in since retirement 14 years ago. You can feel at home here.

Wonderful location to explore

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was a great location for exploring the Redwood Forrest and the Northern California coast. It had great space for us 3 adults to share comfortably. It was very nice to have 2 bathrooms with showers. We wish we had more time at the cabin so we could have checked out the Smith River.
The owner was super easy to work with. She provided excellent directions and information. We arrived in the evening when it was very dark and we easily found the cabin following her directions.
We would recommend this cabin to others.

Great place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 5 nights (2 adults, 2 large dogs). The house is nicely furnished with clean appliances and bathrooms. It would be tight for more than 4 adults. The living spaces/bathrooms have hard floors and the bedrooms have carpet. The wrap around deck has room to lounge in the sun or shade at any time of day.

Great property for pets. The fence around the entire property is very secure. One of our two dogs always tries to escape but she was unable to find her way out of this yard.

The walk to the river is about ten minutes and I would suggest wearing shoes with an aggressive tread unless you want to take the easy route down the road. The swimming hole is wide and deep with very slow moving water even above and below. The river crossing takes you through thigh high water (at least it was thigh high in September) but the large river rocks have been pushed to the side so it is easy to walk across even when barefoot.

Access to many hiking trails is easy with a short drive.

Garage is large enough to accommodate 2 vehicles and has a washer/drier in it.

National Scenic Hwy 199 follows the Smith River. There are many pull-offs along the Hwy where you can park and take the trails that go down to the river. The Smith River offers swimming, fishing, rafting or kayaking. The best part is, since there are so many places, is that you can find a place to have all to yourself!

There's a nice auto tour route through Redwood National Park on Howland Hill Rd. We enjoy this road most in the winter when there's less people and all the trees are fresh and clean from the rain. If you like hiking, the trails are marked and well groomed. One of our favorite hikes is the Boy Scout Tree trail. It's 5.8 miles round trip through the redwoods to get to the impressive 2,000 year old Boy Scout Tree. You can also bike along this road, it's quite spectacular! Next stop if your headed towards Crescent City is the Elk Valley Casino.

If you like hiking, the Pacific Coast Trail is also spectacular! Our favorite beaches are between Harris Beach and Whaleshead in Oregon. Many of the sunsets are worth waiting for.
