HOT TUB OVERLOOKING THE TRINITY RIVER
NO MINIMUM STAY
Sow's Ear is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin with a wood stove (wood provided), full laundry and kitchen. It has a great covered front porch that has wonderful river sounds, comfortable furniture and even a bit of river view. It is just a few minutes off 299, but end-of-the-road quiet, and yet very easy to reach on fully paved roads. It's our only cabin of six that is not directly on the Trinity River, but it's less than a minute's walk down the drive and you have full use of our 600+ feet of riverfront, complete with hammocks, chairs, fire pit, more BBQs, a shaded dining set AND hot tub overlooking the river.
You can see and hear the river from the living room, porch and the Rustic and Honeysuckle bedrooms. The Cedar Sanctuary room that looks out on the rosemary garden and forest was remodeled in 2011 and completely paneled in cedar tongue & groove.
In 2012, we put beautiful oak laminate in the living room and dining area. The master bath was remodeled spring of 2013 and now has a beautiful oak vanity and accessories; porcelain tile floor; and a fresh new color.
Sow's Ear is priced for up to 6 guests. We will consider more, but each additional guest is $15.75 per night (including tax).
Bucktail put-in is across the river and up a few hundred yards. Sow's Ear has proven to be a very popular cabin for fishers, who can tie their boats off to the trees overnight. It is end-of-the-road quiet and peaceful.
Sow's Ear has a full kitchen with a new gas cook top and everything you could need for cooking (if not, we'll loan it to you); there is a cozy wood stove with firewood, as well as a Monitor heater; and it has a washer and dryer.
A good selection of books awaits you. It is wi-fi, and guests especially enjoy working or checking email on the lovely covered porch (ideal for drying waders and other fishing gear). You may also use our computer for internet access if necessary.
Our shoreline is your shoreline. You can dine overlooking the river, lounge in the hammocks, or fish from the shore.
We give great kayak lessons in front of our cabin and launch there for raft and kayak trips. Bring tubes or smaller rafts for playing in front of our cabin.
We are very dog-friendly with friendly dogs, and you can take your dogs with you on kayak or raft adventures!
Michael Caranci of The Fly Shop in Redding says of our cabins:
'For sheer seclusion, access, and cozy, comfortable accommodations, the cabins at the Trinity River Adventure Inn are certainly among the best.'

Steph Dutton is a world-renowned kayaker who paddled from Canada to Mexico, then paddled the Oregon coast again, in the winter. He also circumnavigated California's Channel Islands, often enduring thirty foot seas.
Heidi Tiura owned and ran several businesses before running away to sea and working on tug boats in Alaska, Washington and Oregon.
Steph and Heidi are both Coast Guard licensed masters, and creators of Sanctuary Cruises on the Monterey Bay. They have been featured in numerous books and documentaries for their work with whales (including National Geographic's 'Whale Attack,' which was based on their Mother's Day 2004 whale watching cruise).
Now, they live on the upper Trinity River and their kayak adventures are of a tamer sort. When not rafting or kayaking with their guests, they can usually be found on their motorcycles, because Trinity County has the best roads for riding bikes, or skiing Mt. Shasta (they also have a really cool ski haus in Dunsmuir that's minutes from Shasta's Ski Park)..
Trinity County has the unbeatable combination of great natural beauty, incredible recreation opportunities, and it hasn't been overrun by tourists. People who have come here for twenty years remark at how little has changed. It is a spectacular place to explore.
Being on the river has to be one of the most relaxing things there is up here. Whether you fish, paddle, want to try the rope swing into the swimming hole, or just sit and watch the fish swim by, it is a wonderful escape to have a cabin right on the water (Alpen Glow, Miner's, Carriage House) or darn close to it with full use of our riverfront (Sow's Ear).
