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 cottage is 750 sq ft. It is in a semi secluded, semi private, yet serene environment. The cottage is provided water by way of an old earth well fead by a natural spring. During the latter parts of the summer water tables do get low here and our wells run dry. We are now in what we call 'camping mode'. Meaning there is no longer running water at the cottage. To accomodate this time frame. We provide 3 eight and a half gallon water containers with nice pour spouts for doing dishes, 3 two and a half gallon solar shower bags, and 50-100 gallons of Mt. Shasta Spring water for drinking and flushing the water conservation toilet. Close by is Readings Creek only 10 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. 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, running water, hot showers, 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. 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 which sleeps two, Direct tv cable, a portable cd player, a fully equipped kitchen, a gas BBQ, patio furniture for four, a swamp cooler, wood burning stove, firewood, and two sleeping cots along with linens. Other than the cottage out of water and in camping mode this is a wonderful, clean place in an amazing area.... I thankyou so much for your interest!!

About Cheryl Harmon
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
Why Cheryl Harmon chose Douglas City
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.
What makes this cottage unique
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!!
