Overview

North Coast California 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. Inside is a smoke free environment and pets are considered. 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 46" flat screen TV with a DVD/VHS player and Dish TV with Sirius radio. The master bedroom has a king size bed, a 39" flat screen TV, 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.

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.

Dogs considered, please tell me how many, how old and how large/small. No cats please.

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.

For the cancellation policy, security deposit and rental agreement information please check "Notes" below the "Rates" section.

Please visit our other rental, The Ranch House, at vrbo 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 North Coast California

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!

Clean, Cozy, and Well-appointed

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cabin for 3 nights, and used it as a home base to tour the Redwoods, and see the scenic Oregon coast. It was very clean, comfortable ( I could live on their leather sofas), and well equipped. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed the free hot chocolate, coffee, condiments, salad dressings, peanut butter and jelly, etc. that was available. The showers in the bathroom were stocked with shampoo and shower gel. They have a number of DVDs and videos to choose from to relax with and be entertained by.

Diane and Sid were very easy to correspond with, and were very helpful in suggesting things to do, places to eat, etc. There were also many brochures and information at the cabin on the most scenic hikes in the Redwoods, and other fun things to do in the area. I highly recommend this property if you would like to enjoy all the comforts of home, and explore an awesome natural world of Redwoods and scenic Oregon beaches.

Sibling get away

  • 5 of 5

Our first ever sibling get away. This cabin was awesome. Great location to expore the local area, state and national park system and the coast of Northern California. We did the beautiful stroll down to the river, took a swim and gazed at the stars. The cabin was cozy, great layout. AC was adequate for cooling, though we hardly used it. Being from Texas, Iowa and Colorado, the evenings were perfect for open window sleeping over the July 4th week.

One of the reasons we chose this cabin was the fact there was no wifi. We need to unplug from work and the world. Would definately use this property again if back in the area.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A pretty property to relax at! It's private with trees surrounding the home. It's well kept and clean, with details such as decorative flower pots outside. We enjoyed beautiful weather and enjoyed the back deck. Best of all we could bring our dog who loved exploring the yard, and learned to navigate the stairs. The owner is very helpful with instructions for gaining access to the property and enjoying the surrounding areas.

We used it in May when the Mosquitos were in abundance. We suggest buying a foggier and bug spray at the Crescent City Home Depot.

Great Cabin on a beautiful Lot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin and wished we could of stayed longer. Only down side were the mosquitoes and a 15 minute drive for breakfast.

Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We travel with two older dogs and I believe this was the best place they have ever stayed with us! The yard is all fenced and so much to explore between the pine trees, wild Rhododendrons and the creek and pond on the property. We felt good because we knew they were safely contained and comfortable. We all could relax and enjoy the private deck then move to the cozy indoors on a chilly night. Location is perfect, close to everything you could want to do from the Redwoods, botanical trails and the coast! Loved every minute and would love to visit this cabin again!!

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.
