Although this was our first stay away from home during COVID times, we felt very safe here. When we arrived, they had all the windows open so that the cabin had fresh air. There was a bottle of had sanitizer on the counter as well as Lysol wipes under the sink. The kitchen was very well equipped with god quality utensils. The balcony outside was delightful! Every evening we saw Elks come and graze there. The location is perfect too!

Perfect cabins, awesome location on the meadow - elks are a bonus!

This is a great vantage point from which to explore Prairie Creek Redwoods, hike, and venture to the beach. The cabins are comfortably and lovingly appointed -- and sparkling clean, and their location right on on Elk Meadow is unique. What a wonderful place to stay! The only hitch was the Internet. I had a work call and despite testing it the day before and following Justin's instructions, there was not enough bandwidth to participate in my Zoom call. As the host, I could not start the meeting, leaving all 19 participants high and dry. So it's a great place, but don't count on being able to work from there.

Amazing! Dozens of Elk

I was just driving through and as I passed by, I looked left and saw dozens of elk grazing in the meadow. I knew I had to stop. Justin, the attendant was very knowledgeable about the elk and said they come around often, but this was an abnormally large number in on the property at one time. It was incredible. Such beautiful creatures. The property is gorgeous, tucked away next to the forest with cute lights cabins to stay in right next to the meadow. A number of the elk walked right up to the cabin decks as they were grazing.

Loved Our Visit

We had a wonderful experience staying at Elk Meadows cabins. We were e-mailed all the directions to access the cabin. Our cabin was nice, roomy and clean. As the other reviews have pointed out, bring your own toiletries and food. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking with plenty of plates, utensils, etc. There isn't a restaurant nearby. We loved staying here for two nights, and wish we had planned for a longer stay. We saw the elk several times. Hiked the trillium falls trail which is very close to the cabin. We also took a tour with Redwood Adventures, which we enjoyed very much. This is a beautiful area, and these cabins are a great place to stay and explore the redwoods and surrounding scenery.

Nice, Quiet, and Quaint

Very surprised by the cabin! Brought the definition of Glamping to life! We showed up pretty late at night but everything was ready for us! It was nice and clean. There are notes and tips throughout the cabin. We stayed in the Johnny Redwood cabin (3 bed 2 bath). The larger bed directly in line with the hall had a very springy and slightly uncomfortable bed but we are used to a soft mattress. Our friends had no complaints about their beds. Would suggest bringing your own coffee, sugar, and cream. The coffee was definitely not the best and they only had Splenda available for sweetener. Bring all your own toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, etc) as they only have body bars and hand soap. They do provide extra trash bags, dishwasher soaps, and laundry soap. The kitchen is fully stocked with dish ware as well. There is WiFi available but in the middle of the redwoods it is a bit slow and does drop. Cable and satellite worked well. Only one or two people can use the WiFi at a time before things get even slower or drop. We didn’t see any elk or deer, but we saw a few critters (I think it was a fox or coyote) and birds. Overall the drive to the valley of the giants was about an hour and was worth every minute to and through the park. If you want a quiet place to stay between several redwood parks, this is your place!
