Uppersac is one of  the two charming cabins sit side-by-side with adjoining large decks that overlook the Sacramento River. Located in Sweetbriar just below Castella Ca which is a small community of river cabins and homes. The area has swimming holes, fishing holes, walking and hiking trails, huge pines and mossy river banks. The cabins are equipped with everything you need to cooks, nap, fish off the deck, DVD players and movies, BBQ. Pet friendly with Pet fee. No Internet but depending on your cell service, calls and some apps come thru. A short drive up to the I-5 off ramp gets you connected.
This recently-updated cabin sits right on the Sacramento River with a 700 sq ft deck to cast a line or just hand out on.   The landscape is covered with beautiful ivy that creates a distant feeling from the everyday world.  Leave the alarm clock at home and just relax!   Located in beautiful Sweetbriar, a group of little vacation homes nestled along the river's edge.  Plenty of fabulous scenery for long walks and bird watching. Lots of wildlife including yogi (bears) - so watch your coolers and throw-outs!  Rent the cabin next door for a group.
Ask about the fishing holes along the river!  decks have railings.
Closed for the winter season November 1st to April 1st. We do take bookings for next spring and summer now so call and reserve!!

Castella, California

This home is located directly on the Sacramento River. The river water levels and flow varies depending on the season. It is filled with rocks and other hazards. The current can be deceptively strong & swift in places. Please NEVER leave your children or pets unattended at any time outside or near the water. There are no Lifeguard on the river. Please Google local ordinances or contact Ted Fay Fly shop, (530) 235-2969 for fishing rules, regulations, fishing licenses or up-to-date river info. There are many great swimming holes along the river as well as world class fishing and incredible natural beauty. Have fun but be safe. This is your public land. Respected the river at all times, never throw trash in it. Pack it in, pack it out.
No Air conditioning, in the summer it is cool by the river and at night. Open window to let the air in and use the portable fans. Late fall, winter, early spring can be cold. Heat is provided with space heaters only.
