6. Three Nights in Willow Creek
Enjoy the sun or snow at this two bedroom, two bath home on the Trinity River that sleeps up to seven people. Get up early and take a mug of coffee down to the river to see if we can catch a steelhead before the sunlight reaches the water. Enjoy pancakes at the handsome homemade picnic table before spending the day lounging on the sandy river bank, jumping into the 20-foot swimming hole or riding the gentle waters in inner tubes. Relax with a cold drink in the late afternoon on the deck and cook dinner at the kitchen counter with its river view. The gas BBQ, wine cooler and a variety of fresh herbs are close by. Roast marshmallows and share stories at the fire pit in the cool of the evening, stare up at the brilliant constellations as the sky darkens, and finally fall asleep to the sounds of the river that come with the breeze through the bedroom windows. Limited availability during the high traffic season so book your stay soon.
