4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We booked a deluxe Queen Cottage with spa for the four of us, for two nights. It had two rooms, a bath, small living cum dining and a well equipped kitchen. There was a porch which opened out to a large lawn and it was very peaceful. The hot tub, located in an attached annex was a real treat after... More

Very nice 10 or 12 cabin property in the Trinidad area. Very easy check-in and the cabin itself was large, very comfortable and has all of the amenities you need. It's a very good change of pace vs. one of the regular national chains. We would certainly have no problem staying here again if we passed through the area.

We were very pleased with this accommodation. We had a single cottage to ourselves (there are about 12 units in total and not all of them are single units), and it was really nice to have the solitude and quiet of a separate dwelling nestled in the trees. Our unit had a full sized kitchen, with refrigerator, stove, microwave, and... More

Thank you for your kind review and for taking the time to share your experience! We enjoy reading guest feedback and are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the bathroom heat, the bathroom has a vent controlled by the central heat like the rest of the room. If that was turned off, that would explain why there was no... More

This place more than exceeded our expectations. The proprietors were delightful and very helpful. Our cabin was recently remodeled and had two bedrooms, a great kitchen and a small, but perfectly furnished living room. We had a private porch, access to a large lawn with picnic tables, a grill and a PRIVATE hot tub in an enclosed room off our... More

The good things: the cabin was mostly clean, spacious, and comfortable. The proximity to the Redwoods and Trinidad was great. The not-so-great things: the cabin wasn't perfectly clean. The kitchen ad bathroom was a little dingy. The grounds were a little ghetto, didn't really want to stroll around or hang around outside. If I went back to this area, I'd... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We truly appreciate guest feedback. That being said, in thinking about your concerns with the area, I can't quite understand the use of the word "ghetto" in your review. The cabin exteriors are kept rustic for the purpose of maintaining as much of their original look as is feasible. The... More

We chose the View Crest Lodge for its location - close to Trinidad, which turned out to be a very charming, interesting little town - and the Redwood Forest. We rented a two bedroom cabin for three nights and found the layout to be comfortable, bedding restful and enough space to spread out and not be "cooped up" when on... More

Thank you for your review. The room you stayed in is definitely a favorite of ours and we are so glad you found it comfortable!

I've stayed at View Crest twice. The first time was a couple of years ago, and it was so perfect for our needs that I booked it for my most recent trip to the redwoods. View Crest is located a little north of downtown Trinidad, which puts you slightly closer to the redwoods state and national parks. An easy trip... More

We stayed in cottage 2 for 3 nights. It had everything we wanted and more. Our back deck was great for morning coffee and an evening dinner. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were clean. The owners were very accommodating and welcoming! We will stay here again when we come back to the parks in the area.

Amazing proprietors. Amazing views from Cabin 3. Clean cabins. Decent kitchen tools. New beds new carpet. Great piece point. Would give 4.5 but we had a bit of an ant problem when we got back to cabin despite everything being super clean. Will be back

We stayed here for 3 nights mainly to visit the Parks! The cabins are very nice and clean. They are quite adequate, but could use a little updating. The cabin we stayed in was next to the road that adjoined the RV park, so we got some noise from the neighbors, but not bothersome when you went inside. We also... More
