Jump into Quintessential California Tranquility!

Witness the clean, inviting cottages and rustic yurts of Strawhouse Resort, and experience an unforgettable California getaway. Whether you’re seeking an adventurous weekend getaway or an extended stay full of relaxation and natural beauty, you won't find a better option than Strawhouse. Get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather! Front and center is the 2000 square-foot cafe, actually constructed with 575 bales of rice straw.. No worries; the big bad wolf can huff and puff all he likes. It’s not going anywhere. Instead, you’ll enjoy a commanding view of the Trinity River while you enjoy your freshly baked goods, breakfast, and lunch. Of course, you’ll fall in love with their world-famous organic coffee and tea, the perfect compliment to a morning watching all the early-morning bird activity while overlooking the stunning Trinity River.

There's an impressive variety of lodging options for you and your family to choose from during a stay with Strawhouse. There are plenty of clean, cozy cottages available, but if you're looking for something a little different perhaps the onsite yurt will pique your interest. Inside you'll find a homey loft for reading and relaxing, bamboo flooring, heating and air conditioning, an electric fireplace in the bedroom area, microwave oven, refrigerator, clawfoot tub and shower, a queen bed, and a large deck. Finally, five RV sites round out the stay-options.


Just as popular a wedding resort as a vacation destination, Strawhouse invites you and your partner to get hitched in style. The Trinity River provides a gentle (yet stunning) backdrop, one that will make your ceremony as memorable as it is charming. There are two outdoor sites and one indoor in the newly remodeled Lodge (perfect in case of unexpected weather). Up to 150 guests can be accommodated comfortably.


The Trinity River offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities during your next trip with Strawhouse Resorts. Plan your fishing trip between September and January to take advantage of Steelhead season, and you may reel in a German brown as well. Area guide services are available to help you find the hottest spots. You'll also find more than 260 bird species migrating through this area on a regular basis. See how many you can identify during your stay!


The glorious Trinity River is not only one of the most scenic rivers in the Northwest, but also provides superb fishing. If you're up for it, try your hand at fly-fishing for Steelhead, Salmon, and German Browns. There are also two distinct areas where Salmon are plentiful. Go out and catch the big one!


California itself is simply conducive to romance. It's where beautiful weather, incredible scenery, and a plethora of attractions all combine to produce the perfect storm of love. From river rafting to hand-in-hand walks on the beach while the sun drops below the ocean level, you'll never regret spending the weekend here.


A river view cottage plays the perfect host for newly wedded couple enjoying their first moments of matrimonial delight together. Enjoy your morning coffee from the comfort of your private deck and take in the natural beauty of the Trinity River. A full kitchen allows you to prepare mouth watering meals for one another, or enjoy breakfast and lunch at the onsite cafe!
