Upscale & Authentic: Stone Lagoon Cabin-Gaze at Wild Elk, Hike to Beach
Description from the manager
Private, Authentic Cabin on 2 acres. At the Stone Lagoon Cabin you can gaze at wild elk (sometimes they are right on the property), sit by the creek,walk or ride bikes to Stone Lagoon, and explore the redwoods (close to Redwood National Park) and beaches that surround you! This cabin has 2 bedrooms, one of which is adjoining the living room and you put up a privacy screen to separate it from living room, living room, dining area, and full kitchen. Please note that the only heat source in the cabin is wood heat. A wood stove in the living room and another in the formal bedroom will keep you plenty warm! This is a newly restored logger cabin (you can see the small holes in the floor from the tree climber spikes) and is very private and definitely off the beaten path. You are surrounded by nature and can take a nice 1.5 mile walk to the beach and lagoons, walking by herds of wild elk and beautiful horses. Horseback riding is offered about a half mile from the cabin - what a great family adventure!

The hiking all around you is truly world class - whether through the Redwoods National Park, along the beaches of the lagoons, the trail from Dry Lagoon to Stone Lagoon along the beaches then through the woods (about 5 miles round trip), Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Tall Trees, and much more. You can do some of these walks by just walking out your door and not getting into your car - especially the Dry Lagoon to Stone Lagoon one.
And for the water lovers, what a paradise! The lagoons offer great fishing, kayaking (can rent kayaks at Big Lagoon through Kayak Zaks during busier times), canoeing, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Surf fishing, boating and sailing. Some really enjoy putting in a kayak or canoe at Stone Lagoon and paddling across to the campsite, then hiking to the beach from there.
Fun annual events held locally include the Orick Rodeo which takes place in the summer, as well as the Yurok Tribe's Sumeg Village Day, a celebration of the local Native American culture held at nearby Patrick's Point State Park.
The adventures are endless from this wonderful cabin, starting with looking at your window and seeing the wildlife...

We stayed here last summer. We wanted to go see the redwoods and spend some quality family time. This property was perfect for both. Despite being on a small road right off 101 (which is basically a regular road at that point), it's super quiet and peaceful. There's a little creek right across from the property. We watched a small herd of elk come up from the creek and they just grazed there and in on the property. One was munching away right outside the bedroom window. It was a really neat experience.
