River View is a group space that can handle up to 30 people with stunning sunrises and sweeping views of the Eel river valley below.  Perfect for small, remote weddings, tiny rustic reunions or heart-felt gathering of folks who love nature unprocessed and unvarnished.  Several oak trees dot the meadow, with a sharp incline to super-secluded campspace below (for hikers with amazing leg-strength, only!  The pathway to super-seclusion is INSANELY STEEP.)  

River View is 45 minutes of dirt road from 101 (30 if you drive like a bat out of hell), so be sure you want a little more solitude than normal and love a bit of adventure.   

This is wild land still!!  Some of the last wild land left in the world, unpolished and sometimes mischievous with actual bugs and burrs in late summer or mud in winter.  There might even be wild bees.  Put tick preventative on your dogs and good tires on your vehicle 'cause you're going somewhere out of the ordinary.  If you want the experience of a manicured state park with paved roads and a visible camp-neighbor blasting their radio 24/7, we can suggest several that you might like.  To each their own and more power to you.  This is not that.

Also, people have asked, yes, we are LGBTQ friendly and have friend-family who live their lives very freely in ways different from our own.  We love and accept them all.  You are welcome here.  

A private road above River View leads to the Eel River for swimming and exploring.  The road is exclusive to our ranch, but every now and again, you might see other guests passing by on their way down to the river.  We suggest you wear river shoes when you go, but it's only a suggestion.  AWD and high clearances required.  We're serious about the AWD.  No, we don't need more cars stuck down by the river, although there was this one lady who got her Toyota Celica down and back up again.  We're not sure how she did it and don't recommend you try it.  If you're a marathoner accustomed to hills, then yes, feel free to walk it.  Your own mountain bikes, quads and ATVs are always welcome.

We'll be a quarter-mile above the site (out of sight and earshot) and can facilitate firewood for guests, so long as a burning-ban is not in effect.  It is potentially possible to visit a legal cannabis farm or have a heritage-breed pig roast during your stay, with prior arrangement.  Try the pig.  It's freaking delicious.
