We all found the home very comfortable, tidy and in a beautiful setting. We were unable to connect the TV units with TV service.
Personally, I found it difficult to sleep comfortably because of the lingering smell of the fragrance from the laundry detergent used by the housekeeping staff. My experience is that many people are allergic or highly sensitive to these synthetic fragrances and that they are toxic to people and the environment. Please consider using unscented/natural cleaning products throughout the house in the future.
We were grateful there was a water filter canister at the kitchen sink.
Thank you.

Spacious and clean house. Amazing views in a secluded environment. We had a fantastic time
. Oct 2019
The experience was great! Everything was as advertised and the location was spot on for redwoods visit. The owners were great. Tim came over with his grandaughter one night to show us their new puppy! Laurie gave the kids 3 eggs since they came up with the idea to make a cake but hadn't bought all the necessary ingredients. But she wouldn't take any payment for them! Sitting out on the porch overlooking the lagoon and ocean with a glass of wine watching the sun go down was wonderful. If I was to do another redwoods country visit, this is the place at which I'd stay.

Our family of nine spent a long holiday weekend. The house was perfect for the adults and children. The kitchen is very well stocked with dishes and utensils. The gas grill worked perfectly. The deck has outstanding views of the lagoon and ocean. Night stars and milky way were amazing. The owners even arranged to hold off the normal coastal fog and blessed us with sun and warmth!
. Aug 2019
We had the loveliest time in your home. The view was amazing and our two families enjoyed our stay. Did not have internet service, but did not deter our good time.
. Aug 2019
We had a really nice stay at this rental... everything clean and lots of details like books and games for the kids that made us feel welcome. And what a beautiful location! Eating on the deck, Looking out on the lagoon was a lovely way to end the day
. Jul 2019
the house and location are amazing. Our only problem was the tub and sink drain very poorly in the front bath room. We would also suggest pulling screen doors on the front and back doors to facilitate air flow in the front room. gets pretty hot in their in the afternoon. Otherwise a great stay!!!
. Jun 2019
It was so beautiful. The location was right in the middle of all the sights we wanted to see. The home was clean, comfortable, and beautiful. We loved the views and the drive into the place. It was private and very quiet. Would love to spend more time there. Thank you!

Overall our experience was great. The location was perfect. Very centralized for the places we wanted to go ( fern canyon, Trinidad, Patrick’s point, Crescent city, etc.)and the view was amazing. Old state highway is a bit hard to find at first GPS was not real helpful and there are no signs visible from 101 except the south entrance but no warning signs to let you know it’s coming up. It’s a good thing there are two ways in. No issues with the lock box or entry code. The house is a bit old and funky but well kept. The yard was beautiful, the hummingbirds were fun to watch. The BBQ could use some TLC, the grates were very rusty had to cook on aluminum foil but it worked good. Very quiet, very peaceful and secluded which is exactly what we were hoping for. I would definitely stay here again
. Apr 2019
We had a wonderful few days staying here. Morning coffee and breakfast from the kitchen table watching the birds and water views. Evening wine on the deck and simple dinners cooked in the well appointed kitchen. Days we explored north into the Redwood groves that are only a few minutes drive. And south to spectacular beaches around Trinidad. Peaceful nights sleeping in comfy beds. Toys and games for our kids (3 and 5) and nothing particularly unsafe to worry about - the lagoon is not accessible from the home. We have complaints at all. We’d love to come back.
. Apr 2019
This house was the perfect setting for our small family reunion. The owners were very hospitable. The view was incredible and exactly as pictured. The house was comfortable and clean and the kitchen had everything that we needed to make our meals. The house was so close to the Redwood state parks, we only had to drive a few minutes to absolutely incredible hiking. We would stay here again and definitely recommend this place to friends who want to visit the Redwood Coast.
. Feb 2019
The views from this rental property are amazing- seeing the Freshwater Lagoon, the ocean, trees and flowers. You could spend quiet days resting and relaxing and not even leave the property. And, to adventure out to see the many nearby national and state parks, the location is ideal. You do not access to the ocean from the property itself, however, it is a very short ride away.

The house is spacious and the furnishings have been thoughtfully planned out to accommodate large family gatherings or even just a small group of friends. Lori and Tim, the owners, helped us a couple of times and were so gracious and accommodating.

. Feb 2019
We really enjoyed ourselves. The house has an interesting layout, the large windows that face the ocean are truly amazing. Unfortunately single pane so condensation does build up from time to time.
Really nothing around in the way of businesses so hit the grocery store in Trinidad or Crescent City first!

We were disappointed with the living room floor as it is painted plywood and quite dirty under furniture. But the rest of the home was kept very very clean.

We had a wonderful family vacation here. The house is big and roomy and a great place for adults and children! Beautiful views, quiet, relaxing with amazing hiking and beach nearby!
. Oct 2018
Rented the Freshwater Lagoon house. The house was awesome with great views and nice to come back to after hiking the redwoods! Would stay there again and would recommend to others.
. Oct 2018
A beautiful home with amazing views! The only complaint I have is that we didn't plan more nights there!
. Sep 2018
Beautiful secluded location with an amazing view. Plenty of room to spread out. Enjoyed the ping pong table, basketball hoop and tetherball. Hated to leave.

My sisters and I along with our poodles had a marvelous time at Freshwater Lagoon Nature Retreat. The views are even better than those in the pictures, the home is spacious with plenty of comfortable seating, and the outdoor space is refreshing, quiet and secluded. Not a neighbor to be seen.
While there is a bit of traffic noise from the 101 (where isn't there?) it in no way spoils the atmosphere and you can listen to the roar of the ocean from the expansive deck.
Our dogs had a great time chasing each other through the back yard and we enjoyed morning coffee on the deck.
There's a great stone fireplace with wood conveniently supplied. The kitchen contains every possible appliance and utensil. The WiFi and satellite TV kept us connected to the outside world though we barely cared!
We especially appreciated the small touches, like lovely scented soap in the bathrooms, fresh flowers on the table, and a chocolate bar near the information station.
It took us no time at all to feel at home. The time went too quick and we look forward to returning someday.

Beautiful setting, wonderful views, and Nice house. The BlackBerries were in season so we picked big bowls full each night.
. Sep 2018
A lovely spot with a fabulous view of the lagoon. Very comfortable house with a large deck to sit and watch the birds and water. A great yard to explore with apple trees and a frog pond!
. Aug 2018
We stayed at the Freshwater Lagoon Retreat during our recent trip to the Redwoods and the coast. The house was very nice, accommodating our group very well. Just note that there is no beach access from house ( need to make people aware of this, not in fine print) and that road is narrow and windy to house. Good location for all we wanted to do on our trip.
. Aug 2018
The place is lovely and perfect for a pretty big group. The location and amenities are great, it is beautiful to have outdoor meals and see the sunset over the sea. And the toys for the kids were a blast. But best of all it is only 15min to some of the tallest trees in the world, it was a lovely way to bring family together.
. Aug 2018
This house was perfect for our family get together. Family from Long Beach and Benicia California, Salem Oregon, St. Augustine Florida all came together here. We loved the comfort and at home feel. The large windows in the front provided an amazing view to the lagoon and ocean. It was mesmerizing. Beautiful scenery, tucked away from everyone else in the world. The hummingbirds were plenty and funny to watch. There were frogs in the pond that the kids had the best time playing with. It was clean, well furnished and Tim was very responsive to our needs.b Tim set up a whole crib for us, and whenever we needed anything, he was quick to respond. So friendly with great advice on places to go and things to do. We went horseback riding in the redwoods, agate hunting on the coast and hiking through the redwood forest. Elk were pretty much down the street right outside of Orick. The whole trip was memorable and fun.

Drive 7 minutes on narrow, road to location. Full view of lagoon, 101, ocean, very quiet and peaceful when traffic is light. Must bring supplies, 30 min. to store. Home is lovely, impeccable and huge. Excellent supplies !! Some beds low to floor, some high. One TV regular channels in master, bedroom one with Netflix/Hulu in small bedroom, no TV living room. Owners close by and very helpful if you need anything. Highly recommend this home.
. Jul 2018
This place was charming with amazing views. Had tools and areas for kids to play, was clean, and had some neat touches like a brand new kitchen sponge. We would love to stay here again. The hosts were very friendly and available if you needed anything.
. Jul 2018
Our 3 generation family of 7. (4 adults, 3 children) stayed here at the freshwater lagoon retreat and it was awesome! The moment you walk into the house your in awe over the views through 2 big picture windows. Very clean and comfortable. Secluded and private but close enough to everything the coast has to offer. We loved our stay of 5 nights. The kids didn’t want to leave. We all would love to come back someday. I have already recommended this place to other family members. Thank you Carol.
. Jun 2018
A uniquely located and wonderfully welcoming home. We opened the door on a cool early evening, to find a toasty warm home, with comfortable and uncluttered furnishings. It has a great kitchen for preparing meals - propane stove, generous counter space, lots of dishes, glasses, flatware, and cookware. The birds put on a wonderful show all day. We definitely recommend taking the northern entrance to Old State Hwy 101 (nearest Orick), certainly if your first approach is near or after dark, or if you have been on the road for a while.
“It’s fantastic, I love the floor, I love the jelly fish, and I love the coral light!”
. Jun 2018
Beautiful view, very secluded. Large and comfortable home. Many hummingbirds. Watched whales in the ocean. Ping pong, foos ball, basketball hoop and tetherball great for kids.

Be prepared for the lack of amenities nearby - market stocks minimal basics with many being nearly outdated. Road to house narrow and winding.
. Jun 2018
I had a wonderful time exploring the Redwoods, Fern Canyon, and the beach from this lovely home. Plenty of room for three couples. Well stocked kitchen. Wild life.
. Mar 2018
We had such a fantastic time staying in this home and exploring the area! We enjoyed many hikes through the Redwoods, combing the beaches (agate hunting was a success!) visiting the beautiful Smith River, and many other pursuits. Having a cozy and serenely private place to return to after each adventure was so lovely. Watching the hummingbirds was endlessly entertaining, as they would often hover right next to the giant windows overlooking the lagoon.
The owners of the home also couldn’t have been more generous. They went out of their way to make our Easter extra special and when we couldn’t find a kitchen utensil they delivered it to the door within minutes, accompanied by their adorable and friendly giant dog. Our stay was stellar and we will definitely return if we ever get the chance!
