HOT DEAL! INCLUDES SPECIAL GUEST WELCOME BASKET worth over $50.00 in local products, including wine, beer, chocolate, jam, and more! Deal ends December 20, 2014. Let this be your city home-away-from-home or, as the French call it, your “pied-a-terre”. Arcata City Pied-A-Terre is a lovely, comfortable, fully furnished 1400 square foot city flat that sleeps up to six guests with three bedrooms (one Cal King and two Queen bed); one full bath with tub and shower, and one ensuite half bath in one of the bedrooms. The modern, fully-furnished and well-appointed flat is located in a quiet neighborhood, yet only two blocks west of the Arcata Plaza. The apartment was built in the 1950’s by a local lumberman. It has a spacious blonde-wood paneled living room with flat-screen TV, opening out into a lovely dining room with bamboo dining set, and built-in blonde wood sideboard. The walls in both the living and dining rooms are hung with charming 1930's vintage Hawaiian posters. The fully equipped kitchen has the original red Formica counter tops and honey-colored wood cabinets, and 30's vintage food and wine posters. Three bedrooms, each with their own distinctive decorative styles, provide comfort and fun for a good night's sleep. The apartment sports a charming front porch with a wrought-iron mosaic bistro set overlooking the neighborhood, perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning. We even have a large laundry room with washer and dryer, and a utility sink. Entrance safety and convenience is provided by a security door at the bottom of the stairs. The apartment is located 2 blocks west of the Arcata Plaza, and surrounded by fabulous restaurants, stores and boutiques. In fact, steps away is a cafe in our building that is a local favorite and award-winning restaurant and shouldn't be missed. Humboldt State University (HSU) is located less than a half mile away and can easily be reached by foot or car. Arcata itself is well-located in Humboldt County. The Eureka/Arcata Airport is 20 minutes north on highway 101. Eureka is 15 minutes south. Many other lovely attractions such as beaches are easily within 30 minutes, and we are 55 minutes south of the Prairie Creek Redwood National Park. The world-famous Arcata Marsh is a short walk or drive away and is a fascinating and important resting and feeding site for thousands of birds and other wildlife. Sorry, no pets or smoking are allowed in the apartment, porch or stairs. Much care has been taken to provide this spacious clean city flat with a feel of ease and relaxation, and has everything you need for the perfect vacation.

This is city living and it would be difficult to bring strollers up two flights of steps, so be aware of the limitations. However, we have had children of all ages staying at the apartment, and they have enjoyed it. ...moreless
