We had tons of fun at Jeralynn’s campsite. I can see how easy it would be to get lost, but our host’s directions were perfect. The cabin was comfortable and safe, and a perfect size for us and our two dogs. It was a short walk to a fantastic river swimming hole and large sunny flat rock, perfect place to spend a warm afternoon. The site also backs miles of BLM land and we had a lovely hike with the pups. All in all a great weekend getaway!
Little cabin was nice to have a roof and walls for the night but very small and not very clean. We arrived at dark so it was a bit difficult to navigate the dirt roads leading up to the property. Also, the directions were given with the wrong address number so we were not sure we were in the right place until we saw a small printed sign for parking. The house number given to us was incorrect so we followed the dirt road till the end where we had to turn around in a very difficult spot and almost damaged our vehicle. Not a terrible place to stay in a pinch and on a budget, though.
Get ready for a rustic cabin experience in the woods! The wood burning stove really added to the coziness of the cabin. We started up a fire as soon as we arrived in the early evening and pretty soon the cabin was nice and warm! Be sure to bring your own bedding for the pull-out bed. We brought plenty of blankets and pillows and were quite comfy. Just keep in mind this is more of a "bare bones" cabin. Nature is just outside the door, so don't be surprised if you find some insects inside. We had a few moths to keep us company.
The Cosumnes River is an easy walk down from the cabin, you definitely can't miss out on going down there! It was a little chilly while we were there, but I imagine it would be a perfect summer day swimming hole.
Be sure you look at the roads on google maps before you head out to the cabin though. It took us on the wrong road initially, but we easily found which road we were supposed to take.
Overall, I think this is the coziest cabin experience I've had. Come with an open mind, all your essential supplies and you'll have a swell time.
Sweet little cabin on a great property just a quick little walk to a private swimming hole on the Cosumnes River! The cabin itself is very simple and pretty bare bones with a pullout futon, but has screened windows and a locking door. Great for when you don't feel like pitching a tent (though there's a nice tent site just a short walk away — I can see it being fun to book both for a little group). Bring your own sleeping bag / pillow / bedding. There's a little wood-burning stove if you get cold at night, though by early June, it was already plenty warm enough to sleep with the windows open (in a sleeping bag).
The swimming spot and river access is amazing — so secluded, no one in sight, and a wide expanse of flat rock that makes a nice little "beach" for hanging out on. The river is definitely moving very quickly at this time of year, so be careful.
The road in is dirt and has some private driveways branching off that sometimes look like the main road, as others have mentioned, but there was no issue navigating to Jeralynn's spot in daylight — you can easily tell what's main road and what's driveway with enough light. Just follow her detailed instructions, instead of what Google Maps says. And keep in mind that there's no bathroom and no outside table/space to cook or put stuff on. Lots of grassy space but with tall grass; what you're really getting is a little cabin structure and amazing access to the river for a great deal.
Directions to the cabin was great we had no issues at all finding it. The cabin was a bit dirty but is basically just a roof over your head. The inside looks adobe and has one window that opens with a screen, but be careful the window doesn’t slide well and isn’t in a track. The walk to the river was a bit further then I anticipated if you are bringing chairs and picnic items it’s not convient. There was a water hose near the cabin but when turned on no water came out, as we were leaving we noticed a hose on the ground near the driveway this may have been the water source. The owners home is fairly close to the cabin as well so be cautious when using the great outdoors as your bathroom.
The nearby river is absolutely incredible -- we spent most of our time lounging down there in the quiet, with the entire area completely to ourselves.
Camp was a bit buggy, but it's August -- what're you gonna do? Just make sure you bring some spray!
The host's house is quite nearby, but we still felt very private and undisturbed the entire stay.
