Relaxing California Getaways on the Trinity River

When it comes to California vacations, there’s more than the beaches of Santa Monica, the glamour of Hollywood, and the endless wineries of Napa. While it’s the coastal cities that tend to draw the most travelers, and the popularized attractions of Disneyland and Universal Studios that bring in the crowds, there’s practically a world of other unique destinations in The Golden State just waiting to be discovered. In the heart of the Trinity Wilderness Area in northwestern California, located right along the Trinity River, is one of these such places—and it’s waiting for you. 

Strawhouse Resorts is an exceptional getaway from the major sights and sounds of California. Here, among the natural scenery is a place where you can leave behind your worries and instead focus on life’s simple pleasures. Together with family, friends, or your special someone, you can experience an unforgettable vacation complete with comfortable accommodations, an assortment of outdoor adventures, and an attentive staff who will make sure you feel right at home. 

And your home-away-from-home at Strawhouse comes in a variety of options including a charming cottage or yurt with private river access, or setting up your RV at one of five RV sites. No matter what you choose, you will love the relaxed atmosphere and the close proximity to all the activities. Their cottages come ready with modern amenities such as a kitchen, full size bath, and a large deck. The 30-foot yurt offers a unique glamping experience with bamboo flooring, electric fireplace, clawfoot tub, and large deck area. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, then the RV park is the way to go; with full hook-up and easy access to the river, they’re an ideal way to enjoy your vacation. 

Of course, we don’t expect you to spend all your time indoors. Strawhouse is known for its wealth of fun outdoor activities. The Trinity River boasts incredible fishing opportunities and has been rated as one of the top eight fly-fishing rivers in the United States. You can cast your line for steelhead, salmon, and German browns. If that’s not enough to get you excited, then strap on a life-vest and ride the waves on a whitewater rafting trip. Local rafting companies can assist you in planning an unforgettable experience. For those looking to stay dry instead, not to worry. Lace up your hiking boots and hit the trails! Miles of hiking trails are available in the area, or you can take the trip over to the famous Redwoods. Located just over an hour-drive away, the Redwood National Forests are truly a sight to behold. 

“I woke up one morning listening to my eight and six year olds quietly looking out the huge bay windows at some wild deer. It's something when little kids appreciate the scenery, quiet, fresh air and nature,” said guest I.K. from Sunnyvale, California. “The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and we enjoyed dinner with them one night. This really is glamping. Nature, no cell phone coverage, quiet, smoothies, great meals, grilling, and rafting. We already booked our next stay for next year!”

So don’t just take our word for it. A vacation at Strawhouse Resorts guarantees you not only feel welcome and at home, but keeps you comfortable with onsite amenities and entertained with a variety of fun activities. After you’ve had your fill of adventure, relax at their organic coffee and tea house that not only offers hot drinks but delicious meals throughout the day and wood-fired pizzas. No matter how you choose to spend your time, one thing is clear: at Strawhouse Resorts, you will make memories to last you a lifetime.
