Guests can come and enjoy this beautiful 2500 square foot getaway with a large deck overlooking Butte Creek to view the salmon. The salmon often come in April and stay till September when they spawn. Guests can watch them swim in the deep pool below or take the steps down to swim with them on hot summer days. Only after they spawn in November can guests fish (catch and release only) for steal head which are bountiful in the area.

Butte Creek Canyon is a treasure with walls, nature, and landscape rivaling a miniature grand canyon. Guests can enjoy viewing the turkeys, osprey, bald eagles, mergansers, otters, deer, and possibly a bear now and then from the deck. Kayaking is great on this creek and the hikes in the area are some of the best (the Flumes, Coal Canyon Falls, Phantom Falls, Center Gap and Feather Falls, and Ishi trail are just a few). Also, guests can enjoy the wonderful downtown of Chico with one of the largest municipal parks in the nation (Bidwell Park) with Sycamore pool, caper acres, and upper park. Also, glampers can enjoy fabulous beer and food at Sierra Nevada brewery and endless activities downtown.

The property itself is seven miles outside of Chico's city center in a secluded and peaceful area along Butte Creek which hosts the largest wild run of Chinook salmon in all of California. From the deck, guests can watch schools of salmon and can make their way down the steps and swim with them as well with masks, snorkels, and tubes on site.

Northern California is infamous for its vast woodlands. rolling hills, and mild year round climate making it a perfect glamping destination through every season. Outdoor enthusiasts who visit this area will have something interesting and new to do every day during their glamping getaway.

The property itself sits just above a rushing river where during April guests can watch the salmon flock upstream. As fishing rules are extremely strict, more adventurous guests can use snorkeling gear to observe the salmon up close while they migrate through the property. Guests can also swim, kayak, canoe, and tube on the river while the weather is warm and the sun is shining.

The terrain around the property and Chico is home to amazing trails, forests, and national parks such as Plumas National Forest and Mendocino National Forest where guests can go hiking, trekking, cycling, mountain biking, horseback riding, mountain climbing, and rappelling. These areas are also home to larger lakes and rivers where guests can go fishing and boating. Wildlife observing and photography are also popular activities to do in the breathtaking national forests.

If glampers want a break from the outdoors they can take a short drive into Chico and grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants, socialize with the locals at one of the numerous bars, or go shopping in the boutiques and antique shops.
