Wonderful retreat near hiking & beach with gas grill, large deck, & 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 at all. 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 with its convenient shops and restaurants. 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.

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 TV with streaming capabilities.

* Please note that this suite is part of a larger home; groups can book the entire cabin at Elk Meadow 9 Prairie Creek.

The cabins were spacious & very clean. We had a gas leak with the stove & they replaced it with a new stove. Very cool waking up to a herd of elk.
Manager response:

We apologized for the inconvenience that you experienced because of the gas leak with the stove and we are glad that our local staff did able to assist you and fixed it.

We look forward to welcoming you back for another wonderful getaway in the future!

Very clean. I didn't expect it to be so nice clean. Pictures don't do this place justice. I recommend this place for peace and quiet.
Carolina Z. Sep 2022
This cozy and cute decorative cabin provided a relaxing time for me and girlfriends. The host and on site staff were very helpful and kind when addressing a need in the suite. Our stay was just what we needed. Thank you, Elk Meadow Cabins/Vacasa, for maintaining a beautiful and quiet space to vacation at.

The Cabin was better than the pictures show and is very peaceful and beautiful. Elk are grazing in the yard and the weather is awesome

Perfect location, very clean and they had everything we needed!

We just got back from Elk Meadow Cabins and it was a magical vacation. The cabins couldn’t have been better situated. It was super close to Trillium falls, Lady bird grove and most of our favorite trails. We spent a week at the cabins and they were very comfortable with everything we needed. Best thing we did was do the tall trees tour with Redwood Adventures(same owners). Pierce was awesome and even our kids were super into his tour.
That said, you should know this area is super rural and you need to bring your groceries in from nearby towns about 40 min to an hour away. Besides a little burger place there aren’t dinning out options. Also, there didn’t seem to be a lot of staff on site. Our shower was backed up the entire time. Also, there was a drought and we weren’t supposed to use our dishwasher. None of this is a deal breaker for us and we’d probably stay here again, but just would have been good to know going in.

Cozy space, with plenty of room for us, grandparents & 2 kids. We had all the regular amenities of home including blankets, towels, kitchen utensils, coffee etc!
Laura G. Jan 2022
Well equipped kitchen. Cozy. Excellent proximity to Redwood National Park. I recommend this and would like to return!

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.
Carol D. Oct 2021
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!
Elizabeth B. Oct 2021
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.
Barbara A. Oct 2021
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:(
Kathryn S. Jul 2021
Place was clean and functional. Excellent location. Very Minor areas to be fixed. Very friendly staff. Would not hesitate to return.
Travis Z. Jul 2021
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.
Matthew E. Jul 2021
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.
Shawn H. Jul 2021
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!
Tonya W. Jun 2021
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
Jane O. Jun 2021
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.
Beverly C. Jun 2021
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!
