JUST A HOP AND A SKIP TO THE RIVER! BRING THE DOGS....

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Douglas City - The Cedar Tree Cottage

Enjoy mountain views while listening to the river go by.....

Located less than 1 mile from HWY 299. This little house is a 750 sq ft cottage. It is very secluded with complete privacy. Close by is Readings Creek only 5 min walking time, this creek flows right into the Trinity River and is a sight to see. For years I have walked the creek and picked berries while going down to the mouth of the river. There you will find a small private beach, a large swim hole, and beautiful bedrock formations to lay out on or to picnic. Also, by traveling back to HWY 299, turning left over the bridge, you will immediately drive upon the Douglas City store. This road is Steiner Flat, from here you can access the DC campground which has a great spread of beach and picnic tables. You can continue down Steiner Flat road until it comes to an end. The cool thing is-is every dirt road you see takes you to an access point of the river, where you'll find amazing water holes for swimming or fishing. And every dirt road circles back around to itself. Very easy driving, safe, all BLM sights. Now the house is completely furnished....it has 1 bedroom with a queen size bed. The bathroom is small, but is complete with bath and shower. There is a hidabed couch, Direct tv cable, a portable cd player, a fully equipped kitchen, a gas BBQ, patio furniture for four, a swamp cooler, wood burning stove, and linens are provided. For weekly stays I recommend you bring additional linens.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets considered
  • non smoking only
  • Events Allowed
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

Hi, my name is Cheryl...I am a full time student at Shasta College preparing to go into the Registered Nurses Program. For the last 10 years I have been working with wild mustangs and caring for my mother who survived the largest brain aneurism rupture, in the worst location. I am honored to share she is a walking, talking miracle!! Along side of caring for her and wild horses and going to college. My only other dream to accomplish, is to share my home with others. Why, you might ask? Because, it is a life changing experience I might say! And I want to share with others what I have been blessed with....

Cheryl Harmon purchased this cottage in 1996

I bought this property because it was meant to be....I was 25 and ready to purchase my first home away from home (Monterey). I traveled searching through Tahoe and the Yosemite areas and found nothing that captured my heart. Then my aunt and uncle showed up in Monterey and they had just purchased a home in Trinity County. They encouraged me to come and visit. Missing the road to their home. I found myself pulled over in front of this little cottage for sale....It was just meant to be!! So, I bought my first home and started a cleaning/painting service and a shuttling service for fishing guides and local tourists.

As soon as you get out of your vehicle....You will hear the river....smell the cedar trees in the yard, see hundreds of doug firs, pines, cedars, and madrones covering the mountain and be greeted by an amazing amount of birds!!

COZY AND PERFECT PLACE FOR A FAMILY BREAK

  • 5 out of 5
My family of two adults and two kids stayed in this cottage about a week during the Christmas week in 2013. The cottage was not huge but big enough for us. My wife and I used the bedroom while my kids loved laying on the couch bed in the living room with a wood-burning stove. Due to the cozy size of the cottage, it got warmed up very quickly when a couple of firewoods were added upon coming back from a day journey in Lewiston and Weaverville areas. The cottage is just few miles away from Weaverville where you can find everything you need (groceries, bank, gas, etc). The Trinity river is right at the cottage, just some walks away. The owner of the cottage was very nice and caring about our stay. There were a plenty of firewoods stacked at the back of the cottage and we also used a well-cleaned grill for our steaks. Of course, all these are provided at almost a price for camping! Will come back for another time, possibly this summer to explore the Trinity Alps.

HORRIBLE, VERY DECEIVING PEOPLE: NEVER EVER AGAIN. BETTER CAMPING !!!

  • 1 out of 5
The whole idea was to have a family vacation on the river. The river is "just a hop and a skip" away BUT the owner did not mention that there is a BIG "no trespassing" sign between you and the river so it is more "a hop and a skip AND A DRIVE" to the river.

No running water (not even to flush the toilet). The place a few miles away where the owner said we could refill the jugs was unaccessible because of ongoing constructions. We had to fill the jugs with river water.
In the yard, not a single blade of green grass, in the house not even a table to have dinner inside. Listed as "sleeps 6" ... If you put 3 people in each bed (and they are NOT king size either!).
Electric wires nailed to the ground against any basic common-sense without even mentioning building or fire codes.
I am not even sure that it is legal to rent a place in such unsanitary and unsafe conditions.
I was tempted to turn around and leave if it was not hours away from where i live and if the Trinity River was not so beautiful.
It would have been much much better to go to the local camping ground which is on the river, has potable water, showers and flush toilets, and is just $10/night.

DOGS LOVED IT

  • 5 out of 5
Me and my dogs very much enjoyed our stay this summer. I wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage was lovely, clean and very peaceful, and very close to the local store and close to many site seeing attractions. The yard is huge and fully fenced. The house has great energy. Cheryl was very accommodating. I look forward to booking another vacation here in the future.

Located 7 miles East of Weaverville and less than 2 miles from Steiner Flat Rd. From here you can access the Douglas City campground with a great spread of beach for simple fun tubing!! There are also many other Trinity River BLM access points with beautiful trails, fishing, and swim holes by just driving up to them....One access point in particular is named Dutton Creek....this stretch of the river is called, the 'Canyon Run', and is famously known for its world class, Chinook Salmon and Steel Head fishing!! Great for tubing and scenic river drifts as well....Close by the house is 'Readings Creek' it takes just 5 min to walk there and this creek flows right into the Trinity River. Here at the mouth of the river is where the largest bar of gold was discovered during the GOLD RUSH era. It's an amazing place to hang out and relax....I have fallen asleep there many times!! Last but not least there is information provided at the house on fishing guides, shuttle services, trinity river access points, white water rafting, packing, golfing, bowling, museums, the winery, the fish hatchery, mountain biking, gold panning and dining. Here to help ensure you have a great time!!
