Description of Glamping Units

This luxury yurt can sleep up to five glampers.

In the bedroom area, there is an electric fireplace to keep guests cozy and warm at night.

The kitchenette comes with a small refrigerator, a toaster oven, a microwave, a coffeemaker, a sink, and kitchen utensils. If glampers need more fridge space, the refrigerators in the property's cafe can be used, too, and there is also a barbecue outdoors for guests to cook on.

Inside the glamping yurt, there is a clawfoot bathtub with a shower component; elegant and concealing curtains surround the tub for a private, relaxing soak or shower.

Great spot with personable staff and delicious home-cooked food!

Host reply: Thank you for staying with us! We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and hope you get to come back this summer as planned :-)


This was a great experience for us. Location is great, near the river and we even got to see a Bald eagle! Food at the cafe is great. They close early so you have to be prepared. Service is very good and very accommodating. There are many activities around at a short driving distance. The Yurt is a bit close to the highway so it can be noisy at times during the night, but nothing major.

Host reply: We loved having your beautiful family here Roberto! And we were so happy when you got to see one of the Bald Eagle's here. We do offer private dinner options for lodging guests, so that might be an option if you're able to come again, and in the summer we have longer hours; but in the winter we close at 6 pm except on Fridays :-)

We had a wonderful weekend in this special Yurt. Our hosts were friendly and relaxed, and the food was excellent. There is a beautiful place to relax down by the river. Highly recommended and will definitely be back!

Host reply: We really enjoyed your visit with us Maria! So glad you were able to get some much needed r&r in, and we hope to see you again :-)

Absolutely beautiful surroundings and Don does an amazing job at keeping everything pristine. We went river rafting which was a blast and when you come down around the bend to the Strawhouse the whole river is transformed. The Yurt was so comfortable and they really thought of everything. We enjoyed bathing in the claw foot tub with the bath salts left for us. We played games in the grassy knoll just in front of the yurt. The bird watching was so relaxing; bluejays, humming birds, finches and we saw several bald eagles as well. Sitting along the shore you will forget you are about 50 yards away from a HWY, which is the down part. I would over look the proximity of the busy road and come back. The yurt is supplied with relaxing music you can play to divert your attention away from the occasional truck and if you are by the river you won't notice them at all. You do have to cross the road to get to the river, so be aware of that as well. We didn't cook in the Yurt, the property has many tasty and healthy choices - we had great pizzas, quinoa salad and the tri-tip was absolutely out of this world - Don marinates for up to 6 weeks. There is minimal supplies in the kitchen so if you are going to cook don't expect a fully stocked kitchen to do it in. If you are looking for a place to completely unwind, this is it! Had an amazing 2 days!

Host reply: Thank you Lisa! We enjoyed having you and your beautiful family here!

Wonderful place! Very clean and well maintained (I have extremely high standards). If you're seeking peace and quiet and breathtaking views this is the place. Put down the tech gear and enjoy! Activities in the area are hiking, horseback riding, rafting/kayaking, boating and general site seeing. The owners/hosts were welcoming, kind and accommodated all of our requests. They made our stay even more enjoyable. Cafe on the grounds...good food and coffee/espresso everyday (and brick oven pizza on Friday & Saturday). Given the opportunity I would definitely go back.

Host reply: Thank you Joelle! It was such a pleasure having you and your beautiful family stay with us!

Brian Shepard Aug 2015

Nice and clean, but right on hwy299. Truck traffic was noisy all night. Access to the river and several hikes in the area. Cafe was good, but only slight reference to the automatic 18% gratuity. Overall we enjoyed it. Nice to have A/C when it's 100. Recommend earplugs.

Host reply: Thank you Brian! The 18% gratuity is only applied on running tabs :-) We're glad you enjoyed the A/C - it's pretty much a must have in the summer!

Namita oswal Jul 2015

We loved it. The yurt is beautiful. The food at the cafe was very good. Yes, there is slight traffic noise but the experience was so good that it did not bother us.

Host reply: Thank you Namita!

Allan Kiang Jul 2015

It was our first visit here and it likely will not be our last. The Yurt was a unique experience for the entire family! We enjoyed the beautiful setting of the cafe right next to the Trinity River...such an idyllic spot to relax and unwind. The owners & staff were delightful to chat with and made every effort to make our stay the relaxing getaway we needed! Thank you!

Host reply: It was wonderful having you and your beautiful family here! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay with us :-)

Lindsay Peterson May 2015

Recommend this for anyone who is looking for a relaxing weekend, the strawhouse cafe was awesome and the couple that run the resort were so dedicated and made us feel like we were part of their family. Will definitely go back.

Host reply: Thank you Lindsay! It was wonderful having you here :-)

Noel Plourde May 2015

Our hosts were terrific on every level. Such wonderful people! Could have used an extra blanket, as it was rather chilly at night. Also, a dish rack would have been helpful. The yurt was beautiful, but wished it had been on the river side of the highway, since the noise of the logging trucks was pretty loud. Thanks for providing the great bird watching books. We loved it there and hope to return!

Host reply: Would love to have supplied you with the extra blanket! Please do not hesitate to ask next time :-) We will get a dish rack for the yurt - great suggestion!

Sandeep Bhatia Feb 2015

Great and unique experience!

Host reply: Thank you Sandeep! We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us :-)

Brenna Clemens Oct 2014

What a wonderful weekend we had! Only wish we had more time to stay and enjoy the yurt and beautiful Trinity!

Host reply: Thank you Brenna!

Anne Wang Sep 2014

Would definitely go back again!

Host reply: We will look forward to that time Anne! Thank you for coming, and we're so happy you enjoyed your stay with us.

Ketti Diep Jul 2014

We had a great time and will definitely return in the near future and plan a longer stay!

Host reply: We'll look forward to that Ketti!

Trinity River is one of Northern California’s most scenic rivers. It offers great year-round fishing opportunities. Glampers can try their hand at snatching up some steelhead, salmon, and German brown fish. With over 260 species, this area is a bird watcher’s paradise. While sipping on a steamy cup of coffee, first thing in the morning from the comfort of the accommodation deck, glampers may spot bald eagles, blue heron, merganser, stellar jays, turkey vultures, sharp-shinned hawks, rufous hummingbirds, golden eagles, and more. Do not miss out on the other fun activities to experience including hunting, kayaking and canoeing right at the heart of the river, to hiking and biking on the beautiful trails. Bringing a camera or mobile device with a good camera is a must for capturing some great action shots and picturesque scenery. Make sure to visit the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival during the summer months.
