Private cabin close to lagoons, beaches, & the Redwood Parks

With Redwood Park hiking trails close by and beautiful lagoons and beaches right across the road, the adventures are endless from this wonderful logger cabin! Warm up alongside the wood stoves in your cozy living room or formal bedroom, prepare quick snacks or full meals in your unique, full kitchen, eat or play board games at your dining table, or step outside to your front porch or grassy back yard. Fire up the grill for a few summertime treats or just sit by the creek and watch for visiting elk!

What's nearby:
The hiking all around you is truly world class - whether through the Redwoods National Park, around the lagoons, the trail from Dry Lagoon to Stone Lagoon along the beaches then through the woods (about five miles round trip), Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Tall Trees, and much more. You can do some of these hikes by just walking out your door - especially the Dry Lagoon to Stone Lagoon one. And for water lovers,, the lagoons offer great fishing, kayaking, canoeing, boating, and sailing. Some visitors enjoy putting in a kayak or canoe at Stone Lagoon and paddling across to the campsite, then hiking to the beach from there.

Thank you for the beautiful and much-needed retreat! Your house is gorgeous and comfortable- every little thing was clearly done with care. We look forward to coming back!
Ellen W. Nov 2020
We really enjoyed our stay in this cabin- it was eclectic and rustic. Heads up- you must be comfortable using a wood stove as there really is no other heat other than a small bathroom heater. Anyone with a smoke allergy would really suffer here. Also- just to be a little picky- there are spiders. We killed about 9 in our bedroom the first night, made for a rough night for myself as I am an arachnophobe. The surroundings are charming, birds everywhere! We would definitely come back.
Manager response:
Hi, Ellen! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your feedback. We do our best to keep the spiders at bay, but being a cabin in the woods, they are a natural part of the ecosystem that helps keep other pests under control. Thank you!
Daniel W. Nov 2020
We really enjoyed our stay here. The cabin was very clean and cozy. Near lots of great activities from the ocean to the redwood forest!
Mark W. Oct 2020
Location was ideal for exploring the redwoods, nearby lagoons/coastal areas, and seeing elk at the end of the dirt road as well as Golds Bluff Beach. Interior was as expected - cozy and eclectic. The exterior of the home is a bit overgrown. We didn't use any of the outdoor seating areas.
Leslie M. Oct 2020
We had a lovely time on the North Coast and LOVED this location as our home base. VERY quiet, loved seeing the Elk come down through the trail behind the cabin to join the herds in nearby pastures. A bobcat was seen lurking and so many birds! Thank you for the comfortable well furnished and appointed cabin. A VERY welcome respite from the smoke and head inland. We will be back!
Stephanie & Nick . Sep 2020
We have been making our way up the coast to Portland, from our home in San Diego. What a perfect cabin getaway here. We explored Fern Canyon, Patrick's Point, Stone Lagoon Beach, and Trinidad, and saw many Elk. This was a beautiful place to relax and escape. Thank you!
Jenise S. Sep 2020
We had a wonderful stay at Stone Lagoon Cabin. It was so peaceful & restorative to wake up to the beauty outside the windows. A very special place we were happy to stay in and sad to leave. Thank you for this oasis during difficult times of fires & covid.
Jacob & Samantha . Sep 2020
Thank you for the quiet and peaceful stay! This was a beautiful cabin inside and out. We are unfortunately ending our honeymoon earlier than expected, but this was a nice way to end it. I'm glad we were able to escape from the troubles of life during our time here. I enjoyed experiencing the warmth of a wood fire stove for the first time! God bless!

This cabin was beyond perfect. Highlight of our vacation.

It is with nostalgic but satisfied hearts we return the key to the lockbox this morning. The exceptional people who maintain this cabin exemplify what it means to exceed expectations! The Stone Lagoon Cabin is not a vacation rental, it is a portal to a utopian world where humans and nature unify amidst peace and serenity. During our stay in Trinidad, we enjoyed a celestial honeymoon like no other setting could have offered. We hiked forests with trees which created awestruck wonder with every step. We savored spectacular sunsets at area beaches. We roasted marshmallows under the crackling flames which warmed the cabin each night. We sipped coffee and listened to the creeks rhythmic flow. On the morning of our last full day, we gaped out the front window as a herd of bull elk sauntered by us. They returned for an extended stay in the afternoon and indulged in the lush offerings of the cabin's grounds. Several elk fed just inches from the cabin. Then, in a shady patch beneath the trees, they rested their large frames for hours as their long ears flapped away flies and their antlers teetered in the cool breeze. We will always cherish the memories we shared during our unforgettable stay. Enjoy your adventures at the Stone Lagoon Cabin! There are no wrong turns off McDonald Creek Road. While you are here, whatever you do, wherever you go, you will experience awe. These transformative moments will expand your thinking, calibrate your connection with life's true purpose and deepen your love and appreciation for the people who matter most to you.

Nothing short of everything we expected. Our adventures began and ended evey day, comingHOME to our cabin. PRICELESS
Matt, Joy and Maggie . Apr 2019
Thank you so very much for such a beautiful cabin. Being able to wake up to the sound of birds chirping, frogs croaking, and elk grazing right outside the window was an experience like no other. The cabin has such a uniqueness with all of the little touches and a coziness with all the large windows that look out into the wilderness. Staying right next to the Redwood National and State Parks could not have been more enjoyable because instead of staying the night next to other people, we got to stay on a secluded property down a gravel road and the closest neighbor being the creek. Thank you again for providing this amazing cabin to go along with an adventurous trip!

We had a great time at the Stone Lagoon Cabin. It was perfect for us. Down a private lane off the main highway and deep in the woods. We were minutes from the Redwoods Forests and down the lane from Dry Lagoon. The elk sometimes hang out right in the lawn! The owners have done a great job making it very miner's cabin with rough cut woods and corrugated tin, but at the same time comfy with deep couches, good beds, and, my favorite, the bent-wood rocker. During our week stay, we found everything we needed right there.
Matt . Apr 2019
This place is so unique I would recommend it to everyone! It's 1 mile off the 101 but you feel like you're deep in the hills. We woke up to elk in the yard both days. The inside of the cabin is so unique it's difficult to describe, everywhere you look is something different. We would highly recommend it 4 or less people. Just watch out for poison ivy.
. Apr 2019
Isolated, but with all the amenities... Full kitchen, WiFi, sat TV and two wood stoves for heat. Creek running by 15 feet from bedroom makes this an idyllic escape location. Easy access to all the park locations... Also, Orick general store is 10 minutes away for groceries.
Staci . Apr 2019
Our trip to N California from Iowa was enhanced greatly by this wonderful cabin. The pictures on the listing are good, but the place in person is so much better! We loved the seclusion, the wood burning stoves and our neighborhood Elk we named Eddie :) We spent our days checking out all the Parks and enjoying the Redwoods, and coming home to this cabin was so relaxing. Everything was as expected and then some.
Denise . Mar 2019
As I sit here with coffee on the morning of our final day, I consider my favorite things about this place: the art!, the frog songs, the river flowing by, the birds - no artificial noise! coffee by the fire, reading by the fire, the details of the décor - creative - open - cozy. Delicious food prepped in the adorable kitchen, sleeping with the windows open for fresh air and natures sounds. The tapestries, the bathroom door, art from different cultures !(intriguing - I'd love to know the stories!). It's simply lovely to be here! Oh, and the moment I discovered the hand blender so that I could make smooth avocado lime dressing! I read, journaled, sat in silence, beat my love at scrabble (or, did she win? I don't recall!), explored, ate well - a true re-energizing and re-setting of my cells! I'd love to return and will highly recommend this lovely home to anyone seeking refuge in this area

We had a wonderful stay at the Stone Lagoon rental. The wood burning stoves are plenty warm and toasty, even throughout rainy days and nights. The solitude can't be beat if that's what you are looking for in a vacation, however there was enough adventures yo be had close by! Highly recommend :)
. Mar 2019
Warm, welcoming home that we couldn't wait to get back to at the end of our day's excursions! So many lovely details in this magical place on a quiet road with Elk all around. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay, we've raved to all of our family and friends about it!!!
Beth . Feb 2019
Truly an amazing place. Very well located. Great owners, well stocked. I really enjoyed my personal retreat! Thank you so very much for sharing this magical place.
Sophia . Nov 2018
Amazing stay at a gorgeous eclectic cabin, loved the wood fired stove and comfy beds! Will be back!

The Stone Lagoon Cabin north of Trinidad fit all our needs and expectations. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, but we were actually just a half mile off 101. Easy access to all the state and national parks. The cabin had wonderful views from all the picture windows. The main bedroom was a great size and the bed extremely comfortable. We loved all the decorating touches except for the kit fox. It was kind of creepy. LOL The cabin was spacious and yet very cozy. The kitchen was small but very functional. We played horse shoes by the creek one night and my husband grilled every night except one. My husband said this was the best place we had ever rented on our vacations!!
. Aug 2018
A secluded cabin with everything we needed. Loved the fact that the wood stove was all ready go with kindling etc. Very quiet and peaceful.
Mike . Aug 2018
It was great
. Aug 2018
We loved our stay at this cabin in the woods next to the Redwood Forest. This was a luxury cabin equipped with everything you need and then some and the decor was apropos to the area, giving it a great authentic feel. The hosts were wonderful, welcoming and attentive yet very respectful of privacy. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the redwood forest and have a peaceful getaway.

Amazing cabin...very quaint and cozy

Thank you for opening your Home away from home to us. We loved the hours we spent here making and eating special meals, checking out the wildlife from the comfort of a bed and the views of the trees and plant life alone, through the window frames are breathtaking in their own right. Personally, I wish I could've kept my eyes open longer when we were here to enjoy the furnishings and collected objects that abound here further. Being visited by a Big Man Elk who slowly ate blackberry's out front was a treat! We will always remember our time here with great fondness. Our awe of these lands and the ocean plus the full moon last night are etched into our hearts and minds! Love it here!

Stone Lagoon cabin awed us from the moment we walked in. The cabin feel is homey, and the decorations are unique. There is one full bathroom that is off the kitchen, a master bedroom on the far end of the cabin, and a full or queen bed (don't quite remember) in the living room. For 4 people, this is perfect. The bathroom is clean and rustic, and the shower has the distinction of having two shower heads on opposite ends of the tub which i have never seen before, but I turned them both on and can now die happy. There are a few steps from the master bedroom to the living room, and from the living room to the kitchen, so be careful wandering around in the dark. The kitchen is a bit tight, with a moveable chopping block obscuring the path to the stove a bit, but it wasn't a problem. You shouldn't have too many cooks in that part of the house anyway. We made use of the two-burner grill just outside the front door, but unfortunately never capitalized on the picnic area 30 yards from the house. Next time. We hiked the James Irvine trail to fern canyon, the redwood creek trail and nearby Lady Bird Johnson grove, and the coastal trail, all trailheads of which were within a 15 minute drive. The cabin is also very close to the Humboldt Lagoons State park, and a paved road leads to a beautiful beach. Thank you for the great vacation!

This was the last stay of our 14 day adventure in CA and we loved the quiet peacefulness of the cabin - more than enough specs for the two of us and could easily have accommodated 4 adults!! Fully equipped and ready for your relaxing comfort - fireplace in the bedroom was a special treat since the nights were cool. The elk were in full force our second day - there were 4 our feeding in the field by the Adirondack chairs!! Thank you for a great stay!!
NH . Jun 2018
Stone Lagoon Cabin was a wonderful place to call home for a few days of our stay on the California coast. The cabin itself was warm and inviting, exactly as pictured. It was in a great location for everything we wanted to do, whether it was hiking in Redwood National Park or checking out the local beaches. Very private and quiet, and so fun to see the elk grazing just outside our windows one evening. We hated to pack up and leave. Would highly recommend!!
Graham . Jun 2018
To be honest I was a little reticent about booking Stone Lagoon, what with the tin walls, but I am so glad I did. It is marvellous, the location the decor, just everything was perfect. Being in the woods, it is nice and quiet and we relaxed from the moment we arrived.
It was good to know we needed to buy supplies before arriving, there's a Safeway in McKinsleyville.
We happened to meet Jill when we arrived who is lovely.
If you're heading up to this area, I would absolutely recommend you stay here.
Lisa . May 2018
We rented the Stone Lagoon Cabin for HSU graduation weekend. The cabin is small and cozy but is also off the beaten track off a dirt road. The cabin is a unique mish mash of rooms and floors and design but the setting is spectacular with beautiful nature views from every window.
Laura . May 2018
We had the most lovely and enjoyable stay at the Stone Lagoon Cabin. All the comforts of home are at your fingertips. Our only regret was that we only booked 4 nights! I asked my kids and husband to sum up our stay in one word.. they agreed on 'magical.'
Amanda . Apr 2018
Very relaxing
Don, Joan and Maureen . Mar 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful cabin. We appreciated it's rustic charm and the extras, like the well-stocked kitchen and plenty of firewood! It was the perfect place to call "home" while we took in the beauty of this northwest corner of CA! Viewing the elk grazing in the area across the road several mornings was an added bonus! Thank you for all you've done to make this cabin a "home away from home"!

A delightful house in the woods. It's close to the Redwoods and great hikes, easy to difficult. Literally a stone's throw to the ocean as well. We are already planning a return trip.
. Jan 2018
We had a very nice time at the cabin. It is a perfectly quiet and private place to unwind. It is a REAL cabin, and a little rustic which just adds to the charm of the place. perfectly located to enjoy the Redwoods or beaches.
