Riverfront Redwood Retreat Nestled in Nature

Waterfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Nestled in the heart of redwood country and perched atop the high banks of the nationally known wild and scenic Smith River lies the historic Woodmoor Gables Lodge. This beautifully renovated 1936 redwoods retreat has 360-degree views of the tallest trees in the world and the Smith River. Wake up to views of the river and to the sound of it rushing by. Enjoy your coffee in the kitchen or dine in the evenings facing sunsets as the river meanders to the mighty Pacific Ocean. Our family’s river front gathering place is located directly adjacent to Redwood National and State Parks, in Hiouchi, California, just 15 minutes east of Crescent City and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Known for sunny summer days and cool evening nights, Hiouchi is considered the area’s gateway to the redwoods, and Woodmoor Gables is the premier riverfront rental property. The house sits on 1.3 acres of sprawling lawns, gardens, lily ponds and fountains and has a private deck and small orchard. The architecture is reminiscent of the 16th-century Tudor period, providing a classic ambiance with all the modern comforts to make your stay in the heart of the redwoods memorable and relaxing. Woodmoor Gables has been extensively renovated using top of the line finishes including granite counters, granite tile and maple hardwood flooring throughout as well as all new appliances, handcrafted maple cabinetry, lighting and furniture. An open floor plan and new windows in every room allow unobstructed views of the redwoods and Smith River. This two-story floor plan offers incredible options to make your stay enjoyable no matter what the season. The first floor offers an expansive kitchen-dining room layout. The kitchen is furnished with a bar-height counter and chairs so you have a wide, open view of the redwoods and river while you host friends and family. The dining area features plenty of seating (with a table for 12 and room for more) to host family gatherings. After dinner, enjoy the crackle of a Northwood’s fire in the living room, while curling up on one of several couches to enjoy an evening’s conversation. The first floor also has two of the most exciting attributes of the lodge: our redwood paneled sunroom which still has the original lead framed windows and our large mahogany paneled game room featuring a regulation pool table, fireplace and 50” flat screen TV, with plenty of games and reading materials to entertain the entire family. When you are ready for sleep, chose from our 6 tastefully decorated bedrooms: The Master Suite: located on the second floor, king bed, private view of the river and redwoods, 50” flat screen TV with surround sound system, private walk in closest and master bath with antique claw foot tub and large granite shower The Fountain Room: located on the second floor, queen bed, great river view, reading nook and private bath The Redwood Room: located on the second floor, queen bed, great river view, reading nook The Green Room: located on the second floor, queen bed, great river view, reading nook The Twin Room: located on the second floor, 2 twin beds, garden view, vaulted ceiling The Garden Room: located on the first floor, queen bed, private bath, garden view The Redwoods and the Smith River are a 5 minute walk through the beautifully landscaped grounds or a short drive to the entrance of Redwood National Park. The manicured lawns and gardens are an incredible treat in the spring, summer and fall, and offer a pond, fountain, rose garden, Japanese maples, and unique trees and shrubs found nowhere else in the County. Just up the road from the Park is the quaint little town of Hiouchi, which offers large morning breakfast (Paul Bunyan Style!) and lunch plates, and a small hamlet store for obtaining groceries and gas. Because we live locally, we can offer a great variety of suggestions to help seed your trip with places to visit and explore including hikes through the redwoods, beaches or coastal dunes, whale watching, magnificent lighthouses, horseback rides on the beaches and in the redwoods, bird watching some of the 413 plus species known to visit Del Norte County and of course fishing on the beautiful Smith River, known for its world record salmon and steelhead fishing. We love Woodmoor Gables and invite you to enjoy the redwood’s premier lodge while traveling through the Pacific Northwest or fishing our pristine rivers. Woodmoor Gables is that perfect place for large families or groups of friends to gather for an extended stay-cation. We hope you will consider it a home where your entire family can relax and play.

Wedding trip
Great home for families or larger groups! Rented the house for our family, 9 adults and a 1 year old & small dogs. We were there for our son’s outdoor wedding in Crescent City on Saturday. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. A huge kitchen & dining table was great for all of us at the same time. It rained a couple of days but we were able to enjoy the views of the Smith River and Forest through the extra large windows and patio! Super host, had the house lit up and heated on our arrival, ThankU again Chris!

Truly wonderful experience
Simply perfect

Annual Thanksgiving Getaway
My family does an annual pre-Thanksgiving since my siblings and I always end up working day of. We needed a place big enough for myself, my sister and her family, by brother and his family, out parents, and my aunt and uncle. Woodmore was definitely big enough and the twin room for the kids worked out great so no one got scared in the middle of the night. The views were spectacular and the kitchen had us all wondering if there was some way we could pack it take it home with us. In other words it made prepping a Thanksgiving feast a breeze with no less than 4 cooks all in the kitchen at the same time. Location was phenomenal, very tucked away and secluded even though there are neighbors on either side you don't notice. And then town was only 12 minutes away. Chris was super helpful and accommodating. My family is already talking about a summer get away at Woodmore Gables.

5/5 Excellent

The epitome of hospitable
This home is a MUST for staying in Crescent City! We began communicating with Chris a year before our stay. Our original plan for an intimate wedding with family and friends in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park was cancelled due to COVID-19, but Chris kept in close contact with us throughout the process of changing plans. Ultimately, we still made the trip with a few close friends. Woodmoor Gables is the perfect location to explore the national and state parks nearby! The home provides an amazing hub for larger groups, with a beautifully designed and well-stocked kitchen/dining area and a lovely manicured/landscaped outdoor space for viewing sunsets and enjoying bonfires. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well spread out which allowed everyone to feel like they had their own corner of the house. Chris and Lisa are incredibly hospitable and there weren't any details overlooked. We truly can't wait to return for our fourth trip to Crescent City and will never stay anywhere else again! Enjoy this beautiful home!!

5/5 Excellent

Family Memorial Trip
The house and grounds are lovely. Enjoyed watching the fog roll in and out over the river. A truly fantastic, well-equipped kitchen, and you can’t beat the view from the eating area. Other pluses: The fire pit, grilling out and the pool table. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for our large family gathering. Overall, a very pleasant stay!
