Property description

Come stay in our pet friendly cottage by the beach! Private, securely fenced front and back yard for your kids and dog, and gated dock access in backyard for our canoes, kayaks, and row boats. (Access is definitely tide sensitive). A public, dog-friendly beach with gentle waves is a wonderful place for walks, picnics, and sand castles.

A family of river otters frequent the area, as do sea lions and sea birds of all types. Great fishing on the jetties on either side of the beach that are within walking distance.

The Shell Cottage has one private bedroom with a brand new queen bed (purchased after a suggestion from a guest that current bed was too soft) and a brand new queen sized hide-a-bed sofa in the living room. The dining table will seat five with separate eating areas in both front and back yards. Private, jacuzzi tub in newly remodeled bathroom. Nice gas barbecue and seating in back yard by the dock and waterway (See Photos).

Located across the street from Johnny's Marina and RV Park (with long term tenants in trailers as well) where you can slip your boat overnight or have extra guests stay in the RV campground with full hook-ups. Local dining is available with walking distance at famous local restaurant Gil's and also the Boathouse.

Things nearby to do include the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge (which experienced kayakers can reach by bay) the Avenue of the Giants, Sequoia Park and Zoo, Bear River and Blue Lake Casinos, Old Town Eureka, Woodley Island, and much more. A little further away we have Prairie Creek State Park (where Return of the Jedi was filmed) and Fern Canyon (where Jurassic Park was filmed). Do not forget about Humboldt Lagoons for kayaking, shelling, fishing, and swimming and Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Samoa Dunes and Samoa Cookhouse.

Eureka itself is just a few miles away with malls, Costco, and theaters and many other things you may need. The thriving arts communities in Victorian Ferndale, Arcata, and Eureka have much to offer both day and night including live shows, art exhibits, and community events. Del Arte in Blue Lake is always offering wonderful, innovative shows as well as Mad River Brewer tasting room, one of the many fine breweries in Humboldt County. Many of those same communities have Arts Alive nights one night per month. Plenty to do - come to the Shell Cottage and enjoy all we have to offer!
