If you're looking for a memorable place to stay, I highly recommend the BnB Hiouchi. While the house and its location are stunning, it's the host Curt that makes this place such a wonderful place to stay. A great conversationalist who can turn out top-notch food for his guests is a rare find in BnBs, and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening chats over a glass or two of red.
The accommodation itself is charming and spotlessly clean, and our room (the lower floor 'apartment' had very easy access to the Smith River (which is great for a post-hike swim). The place is also very peaceful, yet just a minute off Hwy 101.
I very much doubt there's a better place to stay in the region. 100% recommended!
