BLISS PLACE - ON THE WILD & SCENIC SMITH RIVER

Crescent City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom cabin with mountain views (sleeps 6-7)

Thirty minutes from Crescent City, this charming, hand-built, off-the-grid cabin on the South Fork of the Smith River is the perfect blend of funky/rustic and cozy/comfy. In the winter, curl up in a rocking chair and enjoy a roaring fire in the cast iron woodstove. In the summer, open up the windows and let the forest breezes refresh you. Three large bedrooms sleeps up to 7 comfortably. The master bedroom upstairs opens onto an enormous deck perfect for yoga or enjoying your morning coffee while planning your days on the river or coast. Cook up the fresh fish you catch on the world-class Smith River or buy from the fishing boats in the Crescent City harbor in the well-appointed kitchen. Enjoy your meals on the wrap-around deck, under the shade of the dogwood tree. Help yourself to apples, Asian pears and figs from our home orchard in season. Spend your evenings outside listening to the river around the fire circle, or watching a DVD from our eclectic video library.

A short trail thru the woods takes you down to the River, where you can spend the day reading a book borrowed from our extensive in-house library, or kayaking, rafting or swimming in the cool waters of the river or sunning on the flat, warm boulders at the water’s edge.

Adjacent to the National Forest, our cabin is in the heart of the Six Rivers National Recreation Area; a hiker’s Paradise. The historic Kelsey Trail is literally steps away. This recently rediscovered trail was the original route from Fort Jones to Crescent City, and has just been rebuilt with the help of the California Conservation Corps. The southern trailhead is a 5-minute walk from the cabin, and hikers can walk upriver up to 8 miles along the trail as it follows the South Fork and beyond. Or just go far enough to take advantage of some of the emerald green swimming holes less than a mile away.

We don’t have satellite or cable television, cell phone service or wireless internet access, AND WE LIKE IT THAT WAY! We invite you to unplug, unwind, put the screens away, and experience the truly interactive worldwide web of life. See Nature: the original 3D…Cell phone service is available from a number of spots along South Fork road and Highway 199, and Crescent City has all the modern conveniences, including internet coffee shops.

If you appreciate solitude, privacy, wildlife, birdsong, and the music of the river that runs through it, we look forward to sharing our “Bliss Place” with you.

About Beth Moore

We live in the San Joaquin Valley and both work in environmental careers where we can exercise our shared passion of saving the planet. Spending time here on the Smith River is a way for us to recharge our souls and reconnect with the natural world we cherish. We call this cabin our 'Bliss Place' in honor of our beloved friend, mentor and poet-jester Peter Douglas, who followed his bliss all the way to the South Fork, and then brought us along for the ride. We hope it inspires you to protect something you love.

Mother/Daughter Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I go to a different place every other Spring Break, her pick. She chose seeing the Redwoods, so we started looking and found this lovely cabin. It is definitely a bit of a drive from crescent city, but the drive is beautiful and meditative. The cabin had everything we needed and was very comfortable. I would definitely like to return when all the fruit is blooming and with more people, as it was very conducive to a family gathering, fire ring out back, lovely deck all around the house and plenty of sleeping areas. Beth was very helpful with hints on things to see and made it easy to transition into the cabin life. There is also a ton of useful info in the cabin about the surrounding area. It is the sort of place that stays with you. We can close our eyes and be back in the cabin, truly relaxing. Thank you for sharing this gem with the world or at least subset of us smart enough to choose this cabin! Oh and truly no cell phone reception so maybe not good for teenagers who love Instagram, but great for their parents.

Perfect for us....

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 5 nights at Bliss Place. All we had in mind was relaxing and staying put for the week. We have seen the sites on 101 in the past. Short of a morning trip to Stout Grove and Craig's Beach we stayed near the property the entire time. The beginning of the Old Kelsey trail is only 1/2 a mile up the road. Our daily routine was established once we found the Gordon Gorge path to the river off this trail. 1.75 miles from door to water. From then on our family (boys 8 and 10) grabbed the tubes and made this walk in the morning and late afternoon. We would spend about 2 hours rafting down the river stopping to jump off 5 to 20 foot rocks into the crystal clear water. Several deep swimming holes exist throughout the stretch so it was safe. You could also see many trout, and for one of the trips my wife simply brought the snorkeling gear and swam next to us. Several areas did have light rapid spots. We watched our boys closely and they had no issues other than my older one getting tossed off a time or two but he was able to ride the current down. During these excursions we saw no one. So...our days consisted of big breakfasts, rafting & swimming, lunch snacks, more rafting & swimming, cocktail hour(s), then steak dinners on the charcoal grill by the fire pit. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed some of the "house" CD's which included Dan Fogelberg. We must have played that CD a 100 times. I can't explain it but it just seemed right to have it on, a cold beer in hand, while sitting on the back deck looking into the mountain range. Fantastic! The bear that apparently visits the property from time to time never showed up. I'm convinced my boys made too much noise out back playing around and scared it away. One of my boys set up a golf course around the perimeter and hit the plastic balls non stop. The bottom line is that we wanted to be off the grid and this was perfect. Two chairs are placed on the shore of the river which is a very short walk from the backyard. We swam countless hours in this private river spot. Also note that this place gives an entirely different meaning to "dark" when the sun goes down. I set up LED lanterns around the deck which helped me with this. Yes, a little eerie for a family from the suburbs. We watched a movie from the collection every evening after it got dark which was fun. Beth, the property manager, was very kind and easy to work with. Our family is so glad the owners decided to share their property!

Excellent Cabin and Location!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent Memorial Day Weekend 2014 at the Bliss House. Loved every single minute of it. The manager (Beth) was incredibly kind and helpful. The location is marvelous, quiet and dreamy. The cabin is extremely cozy, well stocked and perfect on all fronts. We are definitely planning on coming back in the future. Thanks for having us!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5
What a truly blissful place! The kitchen was incredibly well appointed, the coffee mugs were huge, and the beds cozy enough to sleep with the windows open to enjoy the cool, late spring nights. The manager was a valuable source of local information, and was able to provide us with several interesting and diverse trails to hike on. The cabin is close to so many special places. We definitely used it as a home base to return to after days out, but we knew that it could just as easily have been the focus of our trip, somewhere to spend your days relaxing, slowing down from the crazy speed of “regular” life, and to just be. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. We highly recommend it.

Bliss Place

  • 4 of 5
Bliss Place was a great place to stay for our honeymoon. We found it plenty roomy without being overwhelming for the two of us. It was close to many things for us to explore and do. We visited the Redwoods and the Pacific Coast and Cresent City. The manager was helpful in letting us know what would be most enjoyable to do in our vacation.

There is so much to do in the area, and the location is perfect. Being in the middle of the woods was very relaxing and allowed us to put all of the stress of the previous weeks behind us. We could relax in front of the fire, or sit out on the deck and listen to the wind chimes.

We also enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen. It made it easy for us to be able to cook and get along in the cabin without having to go out to eat for every meal.

Worth it!?

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here! Great atmosphere to relax and take in the scenery. Not too far from town and located close to trails and the redwoods. We came here to relax and really enjoy some family time together. It was great. We made dinner every night in the kitchen and roasted hot dogs over the campfire. We told stories and watched a couple movies at night. Slept in and then hiked during the day. Only downside...kind of...no Internet. It does help you disconnect from work and social media which can eat into family time but makes it hard to research te area while you are there. They provide some good maps though and the redwood info center can provide you with more. ;) also maybe bring an iPod Dock to listen to music on. The old stereo doesn't have a hook up for it. If your looking to explore at your own pace check out bliss place!
