Alpen Glow is our grandest cabin. It's located on the Trinity River near Steel Bridge Road between Lewiston and Douglas City on sweeping lawns bordered by huge trees and the river. Alpen Glow has a swimming hole complete with a rope swing right in front of it. This is a prime winter steelhead location, and summer trout and salmon location. We have an excellent relationship with The Fly Shop in Redding, and provide lodging for many of their clients.

Alpen Glow has a huge kitchen with an Italian tile counter and bar. There is a gas stainless steel cooktop in the center island that's surrounded by Italian tile and butcher block, making meal prep a delight. It has a stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator and the new dishwasher holds up to 12 place settings. The large pantry is well-stocked with the basics, plus lots of serving ware and nice touches for the table.

The dining table expands to seat 10 and the expansive living room has a fireplace, bookcase with great reads, a flat panel TV with DishTV, plus a DVD/VCR combo and lots of good movies. Furnishings are tasteful with fine art and many antiques.

Several sliding doors open onto the enormous river deck which has a dining set, umbrella and many deck chairs and lounges. Graceful arbors over riverside sliders on the deck have beautiful seasonal flowers and vines.

Alpen Glow has two unique lofts upstairs (separate sleeping areas) plus 1 bedroom on the main floor. The Master Loft has wonderful mountain views from the California King log bed; a wood stove with wood provided; a private deck with river view; a sitting area, a queen futon and a built-in daybed; a Jacuzzi tub; double vanity; and a separate shower and toilet. It also has a private deck with river view. The closets are so large, we put a twin bed in one with plenty of room left over to accommodate an adult or kid. It's grander than a Harry Potter bed under the stairs, and great for parents to stash a kid, or for a single adult.

The River Loft has an incredible view from the plush, pillowtop queen log bed of the river, mountains and sky!

There is a full bath on the main floor, right next to the bedroom which has a fine queen wrought iron bed and a twin bed, too.

Alpen Glow is one of our 5 great cabins on the river and part of a four cabin complex on prime Trinity River frontage. All have their own privacy. All have super fast Wi-Fi. We have everything from a romantic Miner's Cabin at $145/night to Alpen Glow, which has a very high WOW factor.

Because you can rent all four cabins here, this is a dandy location for reunions, quilters and company off-sites. You're close enough to mix with everyone else, but not too close.

We never stop refining our cabins. In the past year, we paved the main drive, making for a much nicer entry. In addition to the newly tiled kitchen and bathrooms, the enormous deck is now a soft, pleasing sage green. There is now a parking area at the beginning of our property that's large enough to easily turn around with trailers on your vehicle, and plenty of parking space. You can unload, then just park it. Great for boats and larger vehicles, and boy, does this make fishing guides happy.

We offer kayak and raft rentals, lessons and guided trips. Our guided trips include We supply everything you need and you can paddle to or from your door on gentle meanders with some mild but still fun rapids; or you can paddle on Lewiston Lake, which is stunning (wonderful birding: bald eagles, osprey & more) and has great trout fishing.

Pristine, stream-fed ponds just a few miles away offer warmer water than the river for swimming, and are a nice option for families with small kids.
