“A little slice of heaven on the Smith River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Words don't do it justice. We stayed 3 nights in the downstairs suite. I loved having a view of the forest out the bedroom windows, and watching the Smith River from the deck. The lovely short walk down to the river lends itself to imaginings of a private island. I walked around the beach, climbed up on a big rock and just listened to the quiet. Curt is a whiz in the kitchen and a wonderful host. We chatted so much on our 'check in' that we ended up having a dinner cooked by both Curt and Meg. I read 2 of the books from their well stocked bookshelves and slept the sleep of the truly peaceful. It will be a joy to return!!

Room Tip: Depends on your preference - upstairs are 'bedrooms' in the home; downstairs is a very spaci...

We cannot speak more highly of Curt and Meg's B&B. We absolutely LOVED our experience there! From start to finish we were pampered, fed, and treated with great hospitality throughout our entire 4 day stay. Where to begin?

1) Food: Every morning we were greeted with freshly baked muffins and coffee. We had great conversations with Curt while he made our delicious breakfasts. For a little extra money, we had Curt make all our meals, which I would highly recommend because it makes the stay a truly care-free experience. We felt like little kids again as Curt would send us on our way with our packed lunch, water bottles, and hiking gear.

2) Pampering: We didn't have to lift a finger the entire time we were at Curt and Meg's. They cleaned up after each meal and were great company as well. We shared some wine and conversation with Curt nightly, but he also was very cognizant to give our group some alone time as well.

3) Anton: Anton is Curt and Meg's adorable dog. He added so much to our trip, since we are all dog lovers. It was a great way to get our "puppy-fix" while we were away from our own pups.

4) Advice: Curt offered us great advice on trails to take and places to visit. He never steered us wrong!

5) Privacy: We rented the entire house and each couple still felt like they had their own private space. Each room had a private bathroom, and the downstairs apartment was a great place to relax and visit while our host was resting.

6) Location: We could not think of a more beautiful place to stay. Located right on the Smith river in the heart of the Redwoods, we had access to so much wilderness it was amazing. We joked that the Redwoods made any future forest we visited seem boring in comparison.

We truly cannot express how much we loved staying at Curt and Meg's. We will definitely be visiting again!

We stayed two nights at Bed & Bread and didn't want to leave! We booked the downstairs area and found the space to be beautifully presented and very comfortable. The area surrounding the property is breathtaking and well worth spending some time exploring. We used the kitchen area to cook some dinner and found everything we required to make it easy and comfortable, the bathroom was spotless and luxurious and we both loved the bedroom which is filled with books and a view out into the forest to wake up to! We also used the hot tub which was a lovely treat.
The main reason we enjoyed our stay so much was the great hosting from Curt & Meg. They are both friendly and welcoming without being overbearing and were a wealth of knowledge on not only the local area but on many other topics such as Japan and New Orleans. We left feeling uplifted and inspired and would highly recommend anyone stay at such a beautiful and life enriching place.
(Anton the dog was also an excellent host!)

My wife and I stayed for 3 lovely nights at this magnificent home on the Smith River back in late May. It was hard to decide whether to go out into the local forests of ancient redwoods or to stay at the house and watch the Smith roll by. Curt and Megumi were wonderful and helpful hosts. We hope to return to this magical place.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice!!!

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!

Room Tip: The lower floor is great if you're after a touch more privacy/personal space, but you can't...

My son and I recently stayed at this B&B in the woods, May 20-24, 2013. First, the Host Curt and his wife Meg are just great, friendly, charming, and very accommodating. Curt served excellent breakfasts as well as late night pizza. Curt provided very good Information about hiking trails in the National Redwood forest, although we didn't see Bigfoot, we found his recommendations always right on. The area is excellent for forest hiking as well as hiking along the seashore. Several good seafood restaurant's as recommended by Curt served fresh seafood were about as good as it gets. The accommodations, we had the downstairs suite, were comfortable, large TV, small kitchen, great views through windows, we saw the river otters playing in the river just outside the windows. All and all and excellent trip made better by staying with Curt and Meg at their excellent B&B in the woods.

Room Tip: If you have a family take the downstairs suite

My wife and I spent two wonderful nights in the 'suite' of Curt & Meg's home. We loved the location, the accommodations and the ambiance of the area. Curt is a wonderful cook and baker. Loved waking up to the smell of freshly baked muffins in the morning and the view to the river was outstanding. We ended up also having a delicious dinner with them and would highly recommend that opportunity. We stayed 2 nights and would have stayed 2 more if they had the availability. Will return. Don't want this to sound too good otherwise we won't be able to get our room back...
