We had a wonderful experience with Carole's place. The farmhouse was in a great location. Close to all the beauty of the redwoods and amazingly close to the hiking trails to the lady bird Johnson grove. Don't miss the hike to the grove. It was my favorite!

My kids loved the double lofts and the cha movies (we had to explain how they worked ����. We wish we could've stayed for much longer! We will definetly be coming back for another stay.

Great location! Comfy.

  • 5 of 5

I had researched the top hikes for Redwood Nat'l forest before leaving, and was so happy that Trillium Falls is across the street! and Fern Canyon (a natural wonder! Do NOT miss this.) at Gold Bluff beach - the long dirt road to get there starts across the street also - Across the street (Hwy101) is Elk Meadow with the wild herd of elk, a beautiful lagoon/meadow with walking bridge, and from there you can hike quickly to Trillium falls, and then take the long way back (about 45 min. hike back) if you want. Basically everything is across the street. Just perfect. Also, Lady Bird Johnson grove only 10 minutes driving back down the road. And then we drove about an hour + to Jedediah Smith redwoods, driving in thru Howland Hill Rd - said to be one of the best redwood drives ever and it was (with pot holes) - hiked the Boy Scout Trail and saw Stout grove. Just amazingly huge trees. I just can't say enough for this vacation. The house was super comfy. We went with my two older kids who opted to sleep on the two twins in one loft side, and our toddler who slept on a pull out mattress in our master room. We told him he wasn't allowed up the ladders to the lofts, and he accepted it. The house had everything you could want. We cooked most dinners and breakfasts. the comfy, large sofa and tv and collection of movies there were perfect. We played their board games. We made a puzzle. My husband was happily on wi-fi most nights, doing our taxes. It was great. Perfect. Enough said.

Great place to stay near the park

  • 4 of 5

The accommodations were very pleasant and comfortable. You are only minutes from the park with many trails and even a short walk from the house across the road is a great trail. The wild elk frequently use the yard for grazing and relaxing, so a good opportunity to see them up close. Very well stocked kitchen and laundry use is nice to have. This is a great place to stay if your main goal is the trails and park, if you want city type amenities like restaurants and shopping, then Eureka is the closest and biggest town about 45 mins away, as the town of Orick has limited shopping.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five nights and loved it--it was such s special vacation for our family. The farmhouse is very comfortable and lovely. We hiked, did creative projects, cooked and saw the herd of elk twice in the backyard. Amazing! Thank you Carole. We hope to return.

good, relaxing

  • 3 of 5

the farmhouse was cozy and well furnished. really enjoyed it. before renting it, i probably should have paid more attention to the fact that it has lofts--not the best option for us as i have 2 little ones who kept wanting to crawl up the ladder. there was a temporary power outage in the kitchen which was a bummer--it was fixed by 24 hours but made it a challenge to cook/eat/use the fridge. even so, the stay was comfy and cozy. we saw a herd of 50 elk walk thru the yard too. that was pretty cool.

Owner's Response: Power outages do occur in rural areas in rain forests with wind storms: for that reason there is a back up generator. In this case, an outage on one electrical circuit was caused by use overload. The microwave could be moved to another plug and the gas stove match lit when the electric ignition isn't working. Any inconvenience is regrettable and with young children would understandably diminish the guests experience----though the knowledge gained about circuit breakers and remedying small problems that occur in most every home should have future value.
