I stumbled on Cave Springs years ago just looking for a place to stay on a trip down the I-5. I feel deeply in love with it that first night. It’s not for everyone. My own wife says it’s too rustic for her preference, so trips here are Daddy and kid time. We find it magic. For a long time camper, the cabins are a delightful “camping lite” experience. Other times, for brief stays when we are traveling light, we’ve also enjoyed the more modern motel rooms. The views are gorgeous, the cedar forest smells heavenly, the pool and grounds are wonderful, and we love the sounds of the trains winding up the canyon just across the river. Over the years we have found great hiking and boating in the area and we have favorite restaurants in both Dunsmuir and just up the road in Mt Shasta City. Two fairly new places we discovered last week in Dunsmuir are great! If you are the kind of person who thinks anything much over 10 years old is creepy, this isn’t for you, but if you adore immersion in a place that evokes the mountain resort traditions of the 1950s and even farther back in the 1920s and where you can still sleep in a comfy bed, swim in a nice pool, and use your laptop, this is a cool place.
