This beautiful home is located in one of Arcata's best locations on a hilltop at the edge of town with a sunset bay view. It's close to town, yet removed enough for quiet and privacy. The great room is spacious and comfortable with a wall of windows overlooking the majestic redwoods. One of the most intriguing features is the unique hot tub solarium with surround views of the redwoods. This is a wonderful space for relaxing family vacations and reunions. Sleeping arrangements include two queen beds, two full beds, and three twin beds. There are two couches and plenty of floor space for pads. Three bedrooms are on the street level and two are downstairs. The kitchen is fully equipped w/oven, stove, microwave, full refrigerator and freezer, and pots and pans. Arcata is central to all that the north coast has to offer: Redwood National and State Parks, Fern Canyon, Trinidad beaches, the Lost Coast, and several pristine rivers and mountain ranges. Ask us about local tours and inland river rafting/kayaking. You may review short videos of Arcata Redwood Vacation Rental on you tube or vimeo and more pictures on our Facebook page, Arcata Redwood Hideaway.

This house is perfect for visitors who want to see the REDWOODS! It is IN the redwoods, and it has a view! Right at the south edge of town, the world famous bird watching destination, The Arcata Marsh, offers short, easy hiking trails. It is a five minute drive from the house and can be seen from our bay view window. Our coastline offers pristine beaches, where agates can be found and sea life can be seen. Redwood National Park, Fern Canyon, The Lost Coast, Trinidad and the Trinity River, are just a few of several nearby places to visit. Arcata is central to it all, and it has much to offer in the way of small town entertainment and cafes and restaurants. Arcata has a great COOP and a lively all-organic Saturday Farmer's Market. The old theater is revived, now the Arcata Theater Lounge, and matinees can still be found at the old Minor Theater. Enjoy some sushi, gourmet homemade ice cream or New York Bagels in Arcata.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are an adventurous couple who love to travel and explore~ Sam, a photographer, Mitzi, a masseuse/wellness consultant and river guide. We spend most of our summers on the Trinity River.
Why the Owner Chose Arcata: This house feels like a private redwood retreat, overlooking a redwood grove on two sides and the Arcata Bay in the west. It is in a quiet neighborhood, private, yet close to town. The backyard is a redwood grove, and the front yard gets enough sun for the garden. It really feels like a treehouse retreat in the redwood canopy, yet it is close to everything you'd want to see and do on the beautiful north coast.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Relaxation is probably it's best benefit. We love coming here to cool off on the coast in the summer. The great room is spacious, with picture windows facing the redwoods. Best of all is the relaxing hot tub, where you can open all the windows in the solarium to feel like you're outside with the big trees. The room feels like a treehouse. A great place to relax after exploring the local national and state redwood and beach parks. Five to ten minute drive to shops and restaurants, but without the noise of downtown.
