Wonderful Retreat Near Hiking & Beach w/ Gas Grill, Large Deck, & Free WiFi!

There's nothing quite like the Northern Coast of California and lush, towering redwood trees, so make your way to this adorable getaway and get your fill of nature and fresh air in no time. As soon as you step foot inside, you'll find yourself surrounded by rustic decor, comfortable furnishings, and a spacious layout that will allow everyone to spread out. When everyone returns to home base after full days of fun, the back deck will be just the place to kick back with a cold drink as burgers sizzle on the gas grill. If you want to get fancy with dinner, the full kitchen has everything from a gas range to all of the utensils needed to create any recipe. Not to mention, relaxing each night in the living room will be easy with a plush sofa, a recliner, and a flatscreen TV with streaming capabilities.

What's nearby:
Sitting on beautiful acreage, this retreat is just the place to get away from it all while still being a mere three miles from the heart of Orick. The Northern California Coast is known for its raw beauty and towering trees, and you will have access to it all within minutes of your front door. If hiking is on the agenda, simply make your way to the Trillium Falls Trail (one mile), Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park (three miles), or the famous Redwood National and State Parks (10 miles south). Then explore the primeval ferns of Fern Canyon and the moody beaches of Northern California, and learn their secrets on a guided tour with Redwood Adventures. You can also get your fill of salty air and soft sand by following Davison Road to Golden Bluffs Beach.

Things to know:
The hot tub is currently not available
There is a surveillance camera on the property at the entry gate pointing toward the highway, and one on the fence by the water tanks facing Valley Green Camp Road with a wide view of the property
This suite is part of a larger home; groups can book the entire cabin at Elk Meadow 9A Prairie Creek
Food and Dining: The wildlife is fantastic because Elk Meadow Cabins is remote. We highly recommend that you bring your own groceries or make reservations at nearby sit-down restaurants. The Orick town market and Shoreline Deli are our nearest convenience stores.

Parking Notes: There is room for two vehicles in front of the unit.

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property.

Our family of four stayed in the Prairie Creek suite cabin. It had plenty of space, very clean, everything worked great for us, and we were very comfortable. We did a half day tour with Pearce, which was a fantastic introduction to the national park and all it's fascinating ecology. Thank you! Looking forward to visiting again.

We loved staying in this location to explore the Redwoods! It's a remote area, so having the full kitchen was perfect! We were close enough to the park to get an early start on hiking, and we saw elk from the back porch! My only complaint is that there is no washer or dryer in the cabin. When I made the reservation it said there was, and the amenities book in the cabin still says every unit has one, but it has been taken out. Fortunately I saw that in someone else's review before we left, so we brought enough clothes to get through without doing laundry.

Cabin had lots of homey touches, from the cute pillows, comfy furniture and cozy fall decor to the well-organized kitchen with all we needed for a comfortable stay. It's a great location for exploring the redwoods and Roosevelt elk territory!

This was the 2nd time we have been here. It wasn't managed by Vacasa the fist time we visited in June. I am happy to report that the cabins are still in great shape and if anything, better stocked and cleaner than they were the last time. The housekeeping staff is fabulous! A great place to stay to visit all the great outdoor adventures nearby. We arrived during a stormy power outage but the generator was up and running with no interruption. Cell service is not great but internet is ok. Unplug and enjoy.

The decor’s comfy earth theme and outdoor colors.
If we needed anything in the kitchen, bath, or bedroom, we found it!
BUT, no Scrabble game:(

Place was clean and functional. Excellent location. Very Minor areas to be fixed. Very friendly staff. Would not hesitate to return.

This location is very convenient for all kinds of sights and hikes in the Redwoods. The home was small but comfortable. We saw elk outside everyday.

When we booked it, it was a 3-bed 2-bath home. But a short time before our trip we were informed that it had been renovated and now had only one bath, and it was too late of notice to find something comparable for a decent price. Offering a discount would also have been appreciated. So all in all we enjoyed our stay, but were frustrated with the changes to our accommodations.
Manager response:
Hi, Travis. Thank you for your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for how the renovations made in the home impacted your stay. Your reservation was made with the previous management company. We just started managing this home and hope we can have another chance to host you.

We had a great time at the cabins. Located in a great area and easy to travel to hike the Redwoods. Cabins were really nice and spacious and very clean.

Amazing location and property. Saw over 50 elk. Great service too.
Courtney E. Jun 2021
We loved our stay in the Prairie Creek cabin. It was perfect for our family of five. The location was ideal. We were able to quickly and easily visit points of interest, such as the Lady Bird Johnson hike, Fern Canyon, and hikes in Prairie Creek State Park. We woke up one morning to elk all over the backyard. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect central location for getting to different hiking trails and beaches. The cabin was very clean and cozy. It was supplied with everything we needed. The fact that Elk drop by was icing on the cake. We absolutely will stay here again

Clean house & smooth reservation process. Great communication. Sadly we missed the laundry, hot tub & 2nd bathroom we needed for 7 people. Covid prompted many changes. Great family vacation location & we loved being in the heart of the Redwoods.

Our family of 4 enjoyed the comfortable, spacious and bright cabin 9A. We were wowed by the elk right outside our patio. The location was ideal for our outings to: Trillium Falls, Lady Bird Johnson, Patricks Point and Trees of Mystery. This was our second trip to the area and our first stay with Elk Meadow Cabins. We will be back because there is still so much to do and see!
