Property description

This elegant two-story cottage is located in a secluded garden with a view of redwood trees and Humboldt Bay, yet it is just a short walk to downtown Arcata. It is light and airy inside, with a peaceful and serene hot tub (no jets,) under the trees outside, a sunny private patio, and an upstairs balcony.

The studio has hardwood floors, Oriental carpets, custom cabinets, and original artwork by nationally known artists. There is a built-in queen-size bed in an alcove downstairs, and the upstairs loft has two twin beds.

Arcata is a small university town located between Humboldt Bay and the Arcata Redwood Forest. The spectacular rocky seacoasts, beaches, and forests of Redwood National Park are just to the north. The beautiful clear rivers of the Six Rivers National Forest are both north and south.

Our studio is five blocks west of Redwood Park, three blocks south of Humboldt State University, and six blocks from the Arcata Plaza.

Redwood forests, concerts, restaurants, and movies are all a pleasant walk away. The university brings major entertainment acts for reasonable prices and no parking problems, from Ray Charles to the Tokyo String Quartet.

Arcata has many community events, from the Oyster Festival, to bird watching gatherings, and a lively Saturday Farmer's Market. The Marsh Ponds are world famous for bird watching, and the Community Forest has miles of wild and remote hiking trails.

We also have 2 studios, a 2 bedroom Craftsman Home, and a 4 bedroom Victorian available. Contact us for more information.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1993

About: This tasteful home was designed by Ann, and was her first vacation rental. Over the years she expanded to a home on Maui, and now has 5 vacation rentals in Arcata. Her daughters, Elly and Mary, have helped her design, furnish, decorate and manage her vacation homes. When not working on their vacation homes, they enjoy traveling, hiking, backpacking, and rafting. Sharing their vacation homes has been a rewarding experience, with interesting and lively guests from all over the world.

Why Arcata:
Arcata is a lively university town, with Humboldt State bringing through great music and theater shows. There are coffee shops with poetry readings and local music, Brio Bakery with fresh baked goodies on plaza, and it's close to Redwood National Park with beautiful hiking trails through the redwoods. If you take scenic highway 299 east, you can enjoy the sunshine on the Trinity River, and whitewater rafting.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This home has beautiful hardwood floors and custom hardwood cabinets. The kitchen is fully stocked for your family to cook good food, with fresh produce from the Farmer's market, or grocery store only 4 blocks away. It's only 7 blocks from the plaza, but is tucked back from the street and feels private and secluded. You can enjoy a hot tub in the back yard, surrounded by flowers.
