Arcata house description

Enjoy the sunset over Humboldt Bay from the deck of this newly restored Craftsman home. The house sits on a secluded one half acre overlooking Arcata, the bay, and the distant ocean. Large windows bring in light and views from all directions. The house was lovingly crafted in 1907 with the finest redwood available. Simple turn of the century woodwork details enhance this elegant farmhouse. The living room looks out at the redwood trees along the creek in the valley below the house.

The kitchen is fully equipped, and features Victorian cabinetry. Each bedroom has a queen bed with ultra soft bedding and cozy comforters. The bathroom has the original claw foot bath tub. The game room has a fold out pad for extra guests, and there is also a queen futon sofa in the living room.

The "detached unit" is a cabin with another bedroom, with a queen bed, lots of windows, and a deck overlooking the Arcata area.

The property is a short walk from downtown Arcata and the Humboldt State University campus.

                        This is a charming house in a great location. Close to all. Relatively quiet considering its proximity to HSU. A "home away from home". I would recommend that the owners install screens so that occupants could take full advantage of opening the windows when the weather permits. We look forward to another opportunity to stay at this property in the future.

                        My partner and I love the Craftsman. The house is spacious and light-filled, immaculate, nicely decorated, and has all the amenities one could possibly wish for. Wonderful place to cook and enjoy a meal before walking to the nearby Community Forest for a majestic hike. Or you can sit on the back porch with a wine or coffee and watch a spectacular sunset over the bay. Though everything Arcata has to offer is within arm's reach, the Craftsman is set back from the road, sheltering guests from noise and increasing one's sense of privacy. Check-in and out is effortless, and the owner is quick to answer your call should you have a question. We have stayed twice and will continue to return when we are in the area. We have done other VRBOs and this one is certainly among our favorites.

                        My boyfriend and I stayed here for just one night a couple days ago, and we thought it was adorable! We were able to both request and book a reservation in one day, which was both surprising and delightful. The home was clean and nicely decorated, with a beautiful view and comfortable furnishings. We stayed in to cook dinner and the kitchen was very well stocked. It's also close to downtown Arcata, and an easy drive to Trinidad and/or Moonstone Beach (which is beautiful, I highly recommend making the trip!). One word of advice: try to shut the windows early so as to avoid mosquitos. Thanks so much to the owners for providing us with a cozy place to sleep!

                        We stayed in this lovely home for 3 days and I wish it had been longer! The home is laid out nicely, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. It was nice to see the friendly neighbors (see description of pics) and there were a couple more different friendly neighbors who showed up at breakfast and dinnertime! We would love to vacation there again.

                        Perfect home for a small family, everything you need for a weekend escape. Walking distance to the plaza and parks, a short car ride to the Redwoods and beaches. Eureka is a quick jaunt away too. Nice view of the bay. The home is clean, beds comfortable and kitchen well equipped. Everything you need for a weekend vacation.

                        Our 70 year old parents, my sister, my wife and our two under 3 year old children took over this house for a great weekend to celebrate the graduation of our youngest sister from nearby HSU. We cooked elaborate family meals, watched deer in the yard, enjoyed view and conversation on the deck and had an overall wonderful time. A short walk to the redwoods or town granted us walks in this lovely neighborhood. Besides occasional ants, the full kitchen and laundry room made this easy vacationing. This family would highly recommend this house to anyone going to be in the neighborhood.

                        My husband, 80 year-old father, and 16 year-old son had a lovely three-day stay on a college visit to HSU. Walking distance to campus and town, beautifully kept up, lovely original art on the walls, and spacious enough for all of us. Very quiet section of town with a lovely view - if my son ends up at HSU, we'll be back!

                        We just got in earlier today and this house is pretty impressive. The inside is very nice. They renovated this house beautifully while keeping its original charm. The view over the redwoods and bay are amazing. Location is central to everywhere we like to go. We travel a lot between Trinidad and Eureka, plus all the beautiful touristy sites. Met the neighbors earlier today and they are very friendly. I highly recommend this house to anyone from families to a friends' get-togethers and couples looking for some privacy.
