Get Cozy in 2018: 7 Remarkable Redwood National Park Cabins for the Ultimate Winter Vacation to California’s Northern Coastline…

Wintertime in Northern California calls for the best cozy cabins! As it’s a migratory period for animals, including whales, make your way to the west when you spend a few days along the Northern Coast of California. We’ve got seven fantastic Redwood National Park cabins that will get you close to all the trails and let you experience your vacation in the cozy comforts of your Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals!

Traveling to California in the winter has many perks. To start, with the temperatures remaining mild, and very little snow, if any, will allow for you to enjoy getting that coastal cabin for two! While winter brings not much snow, precipitation comes in other forms, such as rain. From December to April you can experience the rainy season. We recommend rain gear to ensure you have proper attire for any adventure!

Wintertime also brings fewer people out to the Redwood National & State Parks, which makes for the perfect opportunity to watch the remarkable waves crash along the shoreline, or catch a glimpse of the whales passing by on their way south, without the hassle of crowded beaches, trails, and outlooks. One of the other benefits of winter lodging in California are the fantastic rates. Many of our Redwood National Park cabins are discounted or offering reduced prices, so grab your bags, your best friend, and head to the Golden Coast.

A City with Two Lighthouses

Battery Point Lighthouse, Califonia USAOne of the best things to do during your winter stay in Crescent City is to visit the two lighthouses. Beyond the stunning crescent beach that gives way to the city’s namesake, these two historic towers make for a great day out, traversing the landscape of this quiet town. Situated at California’s most northern point for a lighthouse, you’ll find the Battery Point Lighthouse. Built in 1856, this beautiful beacon of light is only accessible during low-tide. Visitors to this location will see that they will need to be here when the water recedes, to walk the small causeway that becomes exposed, and upwards to the top of the lighthouse. Featuring fantastic views that one can only truly experience if you see it for yourself. Don’t forget to stop by the museum while checking out the lighthouse!


Just a few miles away, you’ll find the second beacon in Crescent City, the Lighthouse at St. George Reef.Built-in 1865 after a disastrous shipwreck of the Brother Jonathan, just off the coast. This stunning place sits right at the bluffs of Point St. George Park, while it is an excellent location if you’re looking for walking trails and public beach access, you’ll also want to keep your eyes peeled for a glimmer within the water. It’s rumored that when the Brother Jonathan sank to the bottom of the sea, it brought with it, quite a bit of gold coins and bullion.

It’s true. Redwoods National & State Parks do see the majority of their visitors during the summer month. Each year thousands upon thousands of travelers flock to the far northwest reaches of California to experience what it is like to be amongst the world’s tallest trees. While the weather may indeed be a bit milder, the crowds at the parks can be much larger in summer. For those seeking a redwoods vacation with a bit more solitude, winter months provide just that. And no worries, the forest canopy that towers above serves as an excellent umbrella for those rainier winter days on the redwood coast.
