Our home since 1996, River Rock Gardens is built along the banks of the Trinity River in Lewiston, California.
While not as famous as the other Gold Country, Trinity County was a significant destination for those hardy forty-niners, and our home and gardens are built upon river rock tailings left behind after the river was dredged for gold.
Entering our drive, you pass through a forest of Deodar Cedars, past a small pond surrounded by ferns and Rhododendrons, then around the "park" which is home to another grotto of Rhododendrons, Pieris, Dogwoods, ferns and, of course, deer.
Nearer the house are two additional ponds, the swimming pool, a raspberry patch, apple orchard and several terraced gardens with pathways leading down to the river.
Don't miss the special Saints & Angels Garden.
We want you to enjoy your stay with us at River Rock Gardens whether you are here for a few hours or a few days.
