“two thumbs down”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2006

I found the cabins we stayed in overpriced. I can't comment on them all, but 25, 26 & 27 are small and appear to be pre-fab trailers. These rooms do not have any kind of closet or alcove for luggage. They are equipped with a 2-3 ft long base board heater, which works poorly. Turned up full, it took several hours to heat the cabin.

I rated our stay terrible, because of the power outage. Everything is electric, so you lose not only lights, but heat, and water. That means you can flush the toilet once, then you're out of luck until the power comes back on.

We've stayed in the Trinidad/Arcata area many times. There are many other establishments that are clean, warm and reasonably priced.

Quiet setting and nice, helpful staff make the Emerald Forest a true getaway. The redwood trees create a sense of calmness that is felt throughout the forest. The cabins are a great value for being in the heart of a beautiful redwood forest. We enjoyed sitting on the deck while drinking our morning coffee and anytime we could get out to take in the fresh air. We will be coming back and telling our friends about the best place in Trinidad!!
