We have stayed at Fern River over the New Years weekend 4 times in the past 7 years. It is a great escape from the craziness of San Francisco. The cabins are no frills but you have everything you need for a relaxing stay in the quiet majestic redwoods including a full kitchen (although you do need to provide a $20 deposit to receive a bin of pots and pans). The cabins have always been very clean upon our arrival. The towels are a little thin and the bedding is outdated.
There is great hiking all around the area and Santa Cruz is a short drive should you want to visit. We usually pick up food at the local market and grill all weekend. We have also been during the summer and the riverout back provide a good respite from the heat.
