Elk Meadow is a beautiful, peaceful place to stay full of bird life during the day and the pleasant sound of frogs at night. If you're lucky the local elk will walk by your cabin. The cabins are basic but tidy and clean. Location is about as perfect as you can get for Prairie Creek Redwoods and Redwood NP. Great hospitality! The property manager Pearce was super friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again!

This trip turned out to be more than anything we could have asked for! This was our first trip during the pandemic. It was comforting to have sanitary supplies available throughout the cabin. The cabin itself was fantastic. We had the pleasure of staying at the ranch location which was a couple of miles south of the main office. It housed 3 adults, 2 service dogs, and our 2 autistic children comfortably. The kids were ecstatic to wake up to the sight of cows in the field every morning. With the Orick Market just up the road, we made use of the kitchen throughout our stay. The grill on the patio was a huge plus too! Although we enjoyed the amenities and cozy warmth of the cabin, the surrounding area was where we made our memories. Justin’s vast knowledge of the surrounding area was amazing! He had us visiting new trails everyday. Justin’s suggestions really made this trip an unforgettable one. Within the span of a week, we visited the town of Trinidad, Patrick’s Point State Park, Big Lagoon, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, The Trees of Mystery in Klamath, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, the Smith River in Crescent City, and Harris Beach State Park in Oregon. We were very lucky to have Justin accommodate us for an extended stay beyond our original booking. He was gracious enough to allow us to wash our clothes at the main site as well. We would not have enjoyed the area as much as we did without his help and information. A huge Thank You to Justin and his staff for making us feel at home. We are definitely planning a return. If you’re considering booking a stay here, DO IT! It will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. - Georgie

Great Place to Stay and Forward Thinking

Elk Meadow Cabins was more than we expected. The cabins were great, staff extremely friendly, and they strive to make us feel comfortable and safe during these trying times of a pandemic. They also took out the worry of using an EV vehicle considering the last Supercharger is in Eureka. And they let us charge our Tesla Model 3! The cabins are also solar powered! We though that was pretty cool. Oh yeah and don’t forget the elk casually grazing around you! It really was quite the experience.

Wonder cottages in a perfect location for visiting the Redwood forests

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.
