Beautiful 2 Story House on Smith River- Private Beach, Trails,& More!

Ski-in/ski-out access for family fun on the slopes
A gorgeous 15 mile drive along the South Fork of the Smith River gets you to the river side house located in an area named 'Big Flat' as it is a big flat area high in the mountains where the inland tribes gathered to meet the coastal tribes. Rich in natural history and scenic beauty, this is the type of place one wants to check in, and 'check out'. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of the river rushing by as well as a multitude of songbirds and miles of majestic wilderness, there is opportunity for swimming, rafting, tubing, hiking, cycling, fishing, kayaking or just laying on the river view deck soaking up the sun in summer or snuggling by the fire in colder months.

The house affords the ability to rough it in great comfort as it has full amenities while being off the grid, we have equipped it with solar power and propane appliances.Due to the solar power system capacity--- microwaves,toasters,hairdriers and other resistance appliances will drain the system.

In addition to the river being on the property there are several small lakes with good fishing that can be driven to. Also there are several lakes that are good backpack trips in the higher mountains.We also have a trail head to the Kelsey trail near the house. The Kelsey trail is part of the Pacific Crest trail.For more information see the Six Rivers National Forest map....many things to do.....if you see a bear just make some noise and he will run away......harmless......just don`t leave tasty smelling food out that would attract them......Jim hairdriers,microwaves,toasters or toaster ovens,waffle irons or electric skillets...we are on a solar system....for lights mainly......

5/5 Excellent

Good Quiet Stay
Excellent 3 days, lots of privacy, spacious deck outside for eating. Spacious dinning room and table inside for dominoes and card games - room for all 8 of us.

5/5 Excellent

One of the most pristine and stunningly beautiful places on the planet. The views will take your breath away. If you really like hiking and finding new fantastic places to fish or kayak, this is heaven. The cleanest water I have ever seen.

4/5 Good

Great location
Enjoyed our stay. Loved the area. Host was nice and met us to help us find the property. Would stay again.

4/5 Good

Spectacular view!!!
No words to describe how beautiful the view is! Jim had a cozy fire started for us when we arrived. We never needed the generator. Our little really enjoyed the loft and the bed was comfortable and warm. Very relaxing by the fire playing board games at night. It was extremely peaceful no one in sight with the roar of the river lulling us to sleep. This is an older cabin - not posh but we still felt pampered by the beautiful 360 view and the kind host. It was a real pleasure to be there.

5/5 Excellent

Family Vacation
We had a great time staying at the cabin. The Smith River never disappoints. Thanks for an amazing home base! My daughter had a great time making forts in the loft.
