If you are into going off the grid, phones,tv,cars,urban noise. Than this is the place for you and your family to reconnect with each other and nature. I have been a guest of MMR over a dozen times in the past 30 years. Every time I come back the staff/owners treat you like a family member comeing home to visit.

The cabins are cozy on the inside and rustic on the outside. Each guest gets their own little cabin 4-6guest depending on the size of your group.Each has its own coverd porch to relax on and enjoy the trees and mt views from. Or just take a nap on(guilty of that one:) All your blankets and sheets are provided. If you have a favorite pillow at home bring it if you can and a good sleeping bag for that urge you might get to sleep under the stars on warm nights. The stars you will see are amazing. NO lights on at night at all. Lets just say it is dark as dark gets. Bring a good flashlight.

The resort sits at the base of the beautiful Trinity Alps just above a quite little fork of the Salmon River. There are endless day and overnight hikes for guest to explore. Quite a few high Mtn lakes and ponds to explore as well. The hikeing is beginner to advance. If not up for a hike the resort has plenty of games around the lodge to play. Horseshoes,ping pong,volleyball,tireswing,frisbee,bocce ball, they have them all for guest to use. In the lodge there are plenty of board games for cooler days and after dinner times. Plus a old bookshelf with plenty of books donated by previous guest and staff over the years. The swimming pool is always nice to just chill and enjoy the stunning views on a warm day as well.

The fishing in the river and lakes around are pretty good at times. Expect to fish with light tackle or fly rods. Small trout are the norm 6-12in. The fishing is more about the beauty of where you are fishing and the adventure, not so much the size of fish you are catching. Small flys on the river seem to work best. Small lures will work on the lakes pretty good at times. Silver and gold with some flash. Good luck.

Wildlife is around you at all times. You will see lots of suirrels,birds,lizzards,spiders,bugs. Snakes are around so watch your step. Deer eat in the medow everday and sometimes come right to the logde front porch. Horses in the meadow to see and pet. The big cats are around but rarely seen. Eagles, Hawks, Owl are common to. If you are lucky you might get to see a wild Black bear and their cubs. My cousin and I were luck enough one summer durring a Mtn Bike ride to see a mother and her cub cross our paths. Bear country this still is so hike with a partner.

The meals are amazing. You get 3 meals a day included in your stay. Make sure to lose 5lbs before you come here..lol Because you will gain it back in all the great meals they serve you. Guest are called to meals the old fashioned way by ringing a old miners come and get it iron triangle. Kids love the thing and often take turns ringing it for the dinner hour. Everything is made fresh everday from the kitchen staff. Hearty breakfast everyday serverd hot and early. Light lunches and big big dinners. Dinners here on some nights have a theme. Mexican night/Asain/Italian/Thanksgiving aka Turkey night. My favorite is BBQ steak dinner night. Guest get to season up their own steak and cook it on a outdoor wood pit. While wating for your steak to cook you sip wine and chat with other guest about your day. I guarantee this will be one of the best BBQ experiences of your life.

If you enjoy nature and the outdoor Mtn environment than this is your kind of place. Great staff, great views and great memories. I recommend MMR to anybody that wants to go OFF THE GRID and reconnect with nature.

see you on the Rock...Sham

Stunning views of the Trinity Alps wilderness area everywhere you look. Pick from one of 20+ lakes that you want to day-hike to...and the staff will pack you a lunch before you go. Rather sit by the pool than hike all day? They've got one of those, too...it's surrounded by a lush meadow and an 8000' snow-capped mountain.

The staff serves up 3 great meals each day, and there is a beer/wine bar with plenty of snack options in the lodge. A really great perk is that there are TWO dinners served every night: the kids eat first, then the recreation staff takes them outside for fun and games while their parents sit down for a relaxing dinner with adult conversation!!!

The cabins are basic, but comfortable. Each one has its own bathroom with a shower, a heater, a nice covered sitting porch and everyone gets a bed with warm blankets. The kids get to sleep in bunk beds, which completes the "camp" experience for them.

I must disclose that I'm a little biased since I have been coming here every summer for 35 YEARS with my family. But then, a lot of families have been coming here for similar stretches, and there is a reason why.

Owned by a family in the SF bay area, only about 10 of the 17 week season are available to outsiders. But once you've visited, you'll feel like one of the family. Folks are very friendly and there are many returnees.
The Coffee Creek road turns to dirt after a few miles and it takes the better part of an hour on the dirt to get to the resort. But it's worth it. Beautiful setting in the high 5000 foot meadow of the Salmon River valley below the Sawtooth mountain range on the border between Klamath and Shasta national forests in the Trinity Mountains.
Great hiking trails, many of which are quite long and many with 1500 to 2000 foot elevation gain. Great mountain views, meadows, lakes. The loop trail along the upper Salmon River is the easiest to start with. The staff and guests will be happy to advise.
Very child friendly.
Minimum of a week stay but if they're under booked, as they were in our case, you might be able to sign up for less.
All three meals are served family style and, again, everyone was friendly when we visited. Remember, you are at least an hour away from the nearest town.
Culture of the place is very family-oriented and off the grid.
Cabins are spacious and well furnished. Too nestled in the trees for me to get a good photo to share.
