Beautiful house. It was roomy and comfortable. We enjoyed access to the river and the hot tub.
Elizabeth S. May 2022
Great location looking out onto the Smith River. Quiet and private. Convenient to Jedediah Smith State Park. Enjoyed the hot tub, and sitting on the deck looking out over the river.
Glynn W. May 2022
Location - great! Clean - Super! Easy - for sure! Loved this place and it was just as described. The hot tub was the cherry on top!
Maureen O. Mar 2022
House well stocked with kitchenware, bedding, great hot tub. No nosey neighbors. A beautiful property!! We will be back!!😊 Charlie was great in contacting us & quickly handled heat/ wood issue. 😊
Michael P. Mar 2022
This home had no functioning heat source. It is extremely dated manufactured home with what appeared to be original (think 1970s) furnace. The furnace did not work during our stay with overnight temperatures in the 30s. The interior of the home was 53 degrees and could not be heated. Vacasa was not able to reach the owners and we had to stay in the unheated home.

Vacasa offered a refund of less than 20% of the cost of our 2 night reservation.

Do not stay at this residence. You will be thoroughly disappointed if you do.

What's just as disappointing is after I made Vacasa aware of the non functioning heat, it sounds like they allowed another guest to stay in the home for 5 days and offered them 25% discount on a home that nobody should be staying in. I even recommended they remove it from their website until the issue was fixed. I feel terrible for the people who had the reservation after ours.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Michael. We are very sorry for any disappointment during your visit. While we are unable to anticipate any of the appliances failing, we act as quickly as possible to remedy any situations that arise. We currently have the home on hold while we wait for parts to arrive. Once they do, we will address all concerns and the home will be ready for exceptional guest experiences once again. Guest satisfaction is very important to us and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future.

Smith River right outside door!
Shannan H. Nov 2021
The quiet surroundings with the story like fog in the morning that blankets the river and burns off midmorning to expose the clear river and its treasures on its bed is nothing less then tranquility. If your looking for some peace & quiet or bonding with family & friends this is a great place to stay. A little rustic but with all the amenities.
Debra R. Oct 2021
No thank you
Teresa S. Jun 2021
Having the river close by was very nice and we enjoyed swimming as well as visiting beaches! The hot tub was a very welcome amenity~
Although close to neighbors and finding the place not as clean as we would have expected, our family did have a wonderful time~
Danialle L. Mar 2021
Open floor plan which I loved, kids got to run around everywhere, there were some toys which was nice to have. Only note I would make is leaving extra paper towels and toilet paper. They were 2.5 rolls so we had to buy our own. Lots of blankets and towels. Everything you need to cook. Overall great experience. Would have liked earlier check in and later check out then 4pm and 10am. That was disappointing and felt like we only got 1 real day.
Hannah S. Jan 2021
Beautiful location; on the river, centralized between Crescent City and Brookings, safe and comfortable neighborhood!
Warm, bright, cozy home feel!
Everything was perfectly clean and in excellent working order!
Michael G. Jan 2021
This place was amazing. The views were amazing! Only thing was the hot tub didn't get very hot. But other than that it was great!
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback, Michael. The hot tub is working well; we will provide specific instructions on a sign so it's more user friendly for our guests. Thank you!
Timothy K. Oct 2020
Plenty of room. Nice deck. Good internet. Plenty of cooking and eating items Pictures are correct Convenient to the ocean and redwoods
Linda N. Sep 2020
the location was great! we really enjoyed the deck and hot tub
muni A. Sep 2020
It’s a nice house on a dead end road. We stayed there during the sep 2nd week where there is lots of fires and all the neighborhood redwood parks are closed. So, mostly drove up tor Oregon for the day trips.

One negative that we couldn’t find a solution or alternative - water is clearly rustic smell. It’s aged galvanized pipes. They need to fix it - if one burner is not working, it’s a big deal as 3 others are working fine. But, rust smelling water should be clear must fix for this great vacation home.

Great views
Good sized living room for hang out with the family
Nice dining table (kids used for their zoom classes)
Nice beds
Quality towels and toiletries
Working outdoor grill
Nice deck with the tables and chairs
Rocking chairs
Everything you need to cook or bake. Literally everything.

Living room furniture is a bit dated, but useable with pillows.
1 burner not working.
Water drain if the kids bathroom is not great.
We couldn’t figured out how to increase the temperature of bath tub to more than 87. It seems like there is settings to make that happen - we tried it and it didn’t worked. Guessing it’s user error. Didn’t bothered to spend time to find the solution.

Replace shower curtain in the kids bathroom. It’s really dirty.
Somehow fix the rustic water smell.

Overall we had great experience and will certainly return - hope they will fix the rustic water smell by that time.

Manager response:
Hi, Muni! We appreciate all of the feedback you have provided with your stay. The water tables are low this time of year which does give the water a different odor in some homes in the area; we are looking into a different filter system to remedy this. Maintenance will be handling your other concerns. Thank you!
John H. Sep 2020
The hot tub was complicated, but we eventually got it to work. The TV login was problematic, and we eventually had to use our own Amazon account in order to log in and make it work. The instructions for both should be clearer. Most surfaces were clean, but the windowsills should be dusted. Fans would be helpful during the summer months. We do not know the area well, and were uncomfortable sleeping with open windows. That being said, the view was spectacular, and the area was serene. Not sorry we stayed.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, John! We appreciate your suggestions about clearer instructions for the hot tub and TV and for adding fans. We have forwarded these to local staff and will use this to improve the home for future reservations. We apologize housekeeping missed the windowsills and we will follow-up to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to host you again!

We had a great time exploring the Redwoods, the beach and the river while we stayed at the Redwood Coast River House! Perfect location! The Smith River view is awesome - and we loved swimming in the river while we were there - and enjoying the hot tub! The beds were very comfortable and the house is cozy and welcoming!
Megan S. Jul 2020
We loved the view, the Jacuzzi and the proximity to all the beauty this part of CA has to offer.
Nancy H. Jun 2020
This is a great property fronting the Smith River. It is clean, tastefully furnished and has an open floor plan. The deck is quite large and has lots of seating for enjoying the beautiful river views. We felt very lucky to have had deer visitors two evenings while we were there. We are looking forward to our next visit to this lovely property.
Elizabeth T. Jun 2020
We had a wonderful time exploring the redwoods and swimming in the river and then going back to the house to relax. Fantastic trip.
Barbara A. Jun 2020
You cant beet the view and location of this home. We definitely enjoyed our stay.
. Sep 2019
We loved everything about this River House. Very close to see Redwoods. Amazing amenities, very clean and comfortable. Hot tub was great after a day of hiking and looking out over the crystal clear river. Was private and quiet. Grill was a nice touch too. Wish we could have stayed longer than two nights.
. Aug 2019
Had a n amazing time in the redwood watching Smith River. Had some lazy hours floating and playing in the river. Loved it!
. Aug 2019
Came here to stay while planning my wedding on the river down the road. This place was awesome and beautiful and the hot tub is so relaxing! The only issue we had was that there is no a/c and it geta pretty warm during the summer. All in all, great place for families to stay and I really enjoyed the nature!
. Aug 2019
Quiet spot on a dead end road. Special treat of otter family enjoying life on/in the Smith River. Amenities make this a “home” where R-n-R is the Mantra. Ideal location to explore Jed Smith; Tolowa Dunes; Brookings, OR and Crescent City.
. May 2019
This home was perfect for our family of 8. However, while it says it sleeps 8, it technically only slept 6 in beds, two of our children had to sleep on the couch and loveseat. The kids had a blast down at the river catching frogs.

Recommendation for the property management company/owners---have a brown on hand for guests to use for easy clean up.
. Mar 2019
The River House is right above the beautiful Smith River and was a comfortable retreat for a girlfriend getaway. The beds were comfortable, the fireplace was great as was the hottub and six of us had a wonderful visit. We brought prepared meals but the house is well appointed with everything you would need.
. Feb 2019
Three of us had a great time sewing in the house on the river. We appreciated housekeeping fulfilling our request for an ironing board, and found everything we needed in the house. The hot tub was great and we enjoyed sunshine on the deck watching fishermen on the river.
Our only request would be for clearer instructions for using Netflix on the TV (we managed to use it, but were never sure how we got there...)! Also, maybe some house numbers on the house rather than the mailbox.
The house was clean and all our questions and requests were promptly taken care of.
. Nov 2018
Super time- GREAT location/comfortable and user friendly for all--- Truly a land of the Giants and within striking distance to vast activities. Yes we will return!
. Nov 2018
Beautiful home in a rare,breathtaking location right on our precious Smith River in the giant redwoods. Great amenities,smooth check in. Sitting in the spa overlooking the river will be forever in our memories. Just a bit too early for river flows to allow fishing.
. Oct 2018
We had a fantastic stay at the Smith river house.
. Sep 2018
I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone. I have stayed at many vacation homes and this one exceeded my wish list of any I have been to. It had condements and coffee in the kitchen soap and shampoo in the bathroom that was a WOW surprise! Never have had that at a vaca house before. The home is close to everything -15 min drive to Crescent City closer to hiking in the redwoods and 20-30 min drive to Brookings Ore. The response time was very fast and communications were friendly answering all my questions. The home was clean and is large enough for a family or two. We each had our own bedrooms. My bed was super comfy! Plenty of seating in the front room and everything you could want or need in the kitchen. The view of the river was amazing and the hot tub well that was over the top, we stayed in there for an hr visiting one night! It would be even nicer if there was a direct trail from the yard to the river just FYI. Also people should know there are about 6 steps to get into the front door, if you have problems with steps. I will defiantly want to stay here again when I come to Crescent City. Thank you so much for your beautiful fabulous place! Connie Cibart

We had a great time at this property. It was clean, well stocked(could've used a cheese grater) Nice view of the river. Not accessible to a wheelchair, the beach, that is. Close enough to the harbor to get out fishing nice and early. We had a great time. Thank you. Shelley
. Sep 2018
It was further out of the city then we expected, but we had privacy and in a quiet neighborhood, which we enjoyed very much. We had plenty of room for the 4 of which was nice.
. Aug 2018
Three, Two and One year old's plus an 9 and 11 year old me and my daughter!! We had the best 'annual' vacation to date! Very relaxing.. Loved the house and would go back.. Wish they would have provided more trash liners and paper towels for a group with littles and multiple days. Also access to the vacuum would have been super.. We called and they came and supplied one.. Kids and crumbs.. part of life... thanks for the great time...
. Aug 2018
We had a wonderful time in Crescent City and at the Redwood Coast River House. This was an excellent home base for all of our activities and allowed the kids to be close to the water when we weren't wandering the local sites. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The house was clean upon arrival and well stocked. We were able to come back to the River House every day, cook some of the fish we caught, and relax! Definitely a good spot for families.
. Jul 2018
House is old and quirky (carpeted bathroom! large wooden kitchen mermaid!) but *extremely* well outfitted. They've obviously put a lot of thought and effort into making sure that guests have what they need to be comfortable and have an enjoyable stay. We really appreciated that there were plenty of towels (we had kids in and out of the hot tub), quidebooks (we used them to find a hiking trail), and both a card table and scrabble (perfect for the adults after kids went to sleep). Also, the view out the back was TO DIE FOR. We couldn't get over how beautiful the area was.
. Jun 2018
If you've read other reviews, you already know that this is an older manufactured home that hasn't seen an upgrade in about 30 years. Don't let this discourage you from renting. The home is laid out very well and very spacious. Add that to the fact that it is right on the Smith River, with access to the river that will allow you to get your kayaks in the water and you have a win/win situation! The home wasn't as clean as I would have liked it to be...cobwebs and dead bugs on the interior windows, but that was easily remedied with a damp paper towel, some dust on some of the surface areas, and the beds could be vacuumed under. Be aware that the hot water is VERY hot...turn the cold on first and then add the hot, and the railing around the front deck isn't really safe for small blind dogs and small children. We found the beds to be very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and the hot tub delightful after a day of paddling or hiking. This really is a dream vacation home. We spent 10 days here, exploring the Smith, Redwoods and walking on the beach. Everything is close! One word of encouragement...if you plan to paddle more of the Smith than what's out the back door there are many areas of rapids and fast water. If you're not used to that kind of kayaking, consider going with a guide. All in all, a very restful, fun place to stay!!
. May 2018
We really enjoyed our stay. The only problem was is was not long enough. Great location and accommodations.
. Apr 2018
Thank you for another fantastic stay. Crescent City is gorgeous with lots of outdoor adventures. The home was cozy and watching the clear smith river from the deck while drinking my coffee was amazing
. Apr 2018
The Smith River home was very nice, everything was ready for us. I like the ability to move right in and get started on relaxing. The kitchen is well equipped.
. Jan 2018
This was my second stay in this house. We been coming up here for twenty years for fishing trips. You can't beat being right on the water. If you are a fisherman. This spot is right above the ruby boat launch. You can easily throw up the international fisherman sign language for “ catch anything? “ from the hot tub on the back deck Plenty of parking. 3 bedrooms and a kitchen full of stuff to cook. Even a vacuum sealer for your catch! Not the most modern of places. But let's face it your here so you got a place to land in between adventures. We all enjoyed it. Three generations of my family stayed with us. Has internet but no cable. So be tech savvy with your tv and have Netflix or such if you want to watch something. Only thing I would change is I wish it had some type of covered porch or awning. For the smokers or just trying to enjoy the river view outside on a rainy day. I just brought a pop up canopy this time and it resolved they need. It was nice to have a dry spot next to the hot tub to hang your towel and robes when it was raining.
. Jan 2018
our stay at this vacation rental was amazing. The location was sublimely serene and tranquil. the view of the smith river was spellbinding and the fact that we could soak in the hot tub while enjoying the birds and beavers was just amazing. The house was well equipped with everylittlething we could need...except an umbrella...which we needed quite frequently during our stay. :) My only complaint was that we had to leave. Definitely will return in nicer weather.
. Jan 2018
Great location. Beautiful views, great wildlife, river was enchanting, close to crescent City and Brookings, lake Earl is amazing! House was nice and fully stocked with everything you could need. Except an umbrella which we wish we would've had.
