Home was in great condition with modern updates and conveniences. Our middle schoolers loved watching the elk from the upper lofts. We marveled at how close we were to some fabulous hikes, particularly Fern Canyon and Trillium Falls. Don't miss Patrick's Point or Trinidad, located nearby.
The Berry Glen red house was perfect for our week stay in Redwood country. The location won us over. Right across from the Trillium Falls trail, which was wonderful! Also right next to the new Berry Glen trail. The Elk Meadow elk viewing area is right down the road (but more on elk later). Central location to go north to Crescent City, and south to Eureka. Used the house as a base to visit Redwood, Prairie Creek, Del Norte, Jed Smith and Humboldt Redwood.
The house was just what we needed- full kitchen, queen bed, full bath, propane grill. We didn’t need the lofts, as there were only two of us. The downstairs residents are quiet, we barely knew they were there. The house is on Highway 101, but we were so tired from hiking, we hardly heard road noise.
Shopped at Murphy’s in Trinidad for groceries, and the Orick Market for snacks. Husband had a burger at the Orick Snack Shack which he said was very good. While he ate, I had a lovely conversation with a long-time Orick resident.
BEST THING EVER…the elk herd visited the red house two mornings!! If you hear vehicle horns in the morning, get up! We had about 40 elk, including fauns, in the yard. Think the fence is tall, not for the elk, they hopped right over it. We watched the elk from the outside stairs, living room, and outside bedroom deck for hours.
Listing description is accurate, the property was clean and well maintained, Carole provided good customer service by recommending activities and providing her contact information, we would recommend this property to friends and relatives.
Close to hiking trails, elk live on the property basically
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.
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.
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.
