Property description

NOTE: SINGLE NIGHTS MAY BE BOOKED IN SOME SITUATIONS BUT ARE SUBJECT TO OWNER/MANAGER'S DISCRETION.

GATEWAY STAY 2 bedroom/2 bath upscale vacation rental, which can accommodate 6 guests, is part of the ARCATA STAY LODGING NETWORK OF EXCEPTIONAL ACCOMMODATIONS. This is a 2nd story apartment in a historic building in a great central location, 2 blocks from the Humboldt State University Gateway at 14th Street and L.K. Wood Boulevard, one half block from Wildberries Marketplace (like a Whole Foods Market but locally owned), 2 blocks from the Northtown shopping and restaurant district, and 4 blocks from Arcata’s downtown plaza square. Leave your car and stroll to boutiques, eateries, galleries, nightlife venues, movies, the Arcata Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary, Redwood Park trails, and HSU campus. Gateway Stay is 1000 square feet, and was re-modeled and newly furnished in April/May 2013; our first Arcata Stay guest occupied the apartment over Memorial Weekend. The owners painted throughout and installed new stainless steel appliances, lighting sconces and chandelier, plumbing fixtures, counter tops, wood floors, Marmoleum, bedroom carpet, hardware, baseboards, blinds, and window treatments.

Gateway Stay is a historically unique and very special property. The apartment occupies the second story of a lovingly restored 1906 Neoclassic Craftsman home, custom built as his own residence by renowned architect/builder Nelson Johansen. Johansen was responsible for designing and building a variety of Arcata’s finest residences and retail buildings around the turn of the 20th century, especially in what locals call the “top of the hill” neighborhood, on G and H Streets north of Arcata Plaza. During his early building years, Mr. Johansen saved the finest curly redwood and burl panels found in his trade. He crafted this beautiful wood into his home and it is evident throughout in multi-light windows, doors, and trim. The soaring vaulted ceiling in the redwood great room is solid redwood, as are cabinets, book shelves, and cupboards, lending a lodge-like atmosphere to the space. Beautiful oiled bronze sconces up-light the ceiling, enhancing its many angles with reflective warmth.

The lofty redwood great room is a splendid space, constructed with a myriad of open rafter and beam angles, finished with oiled bronze hardware, and new wood floors. It is open floor plan with ample lighting; truly, the room glows. The color palette is warmly neutral, enhanced by original art pieces (some by local artists), a hand-tufted Craftsman-inspired oriental carpet, lovely sheer window treatments, and luminous art glass lighting. Though not presently functional, a historic artifact found in the redwood great room is the cast iron wood stove, original to the home's construction. Once located in the basement, the stove heated the entire residence with a ducting system similar to how we heat with forced air today, but state of the art for its time. Visitors can gather together in this room in the comfortable conversation area and watch flat screen TV, enjoy group meals at the dining table which expands with built-in leaves, and indulge their gourmet creativity in the fully equipped kitchen with tile/butcher block island, gas cook top, Jenn-Air grill, dishwasher, refrigerator with dispensers and ice maker, built in oven and microwave, and plenty of cupboard space. At the sink counter, guests can look out the window and experience the ever changing view of Arcata Bay skies and tides.

Both spacious and bright bedrooms feature new furnishings: memory foam mattresses, sumptuous linens, chenille spreads, duvet comforters, ample down pillows, and nightstands with storage and reading lamps. The front bedroom has a king bed, a large closet, bath ensuite with antique porcelain soaking tub, and a separate desk area. The back bedroom has a queen bed, an entire wall of closets, television, bath ensuite with a walk in shower and multi-jet shower head, and a built in counter sink with cupboard storage in the main room. The front-loading “high efficiency” stainless steel laundry center is in a small room adjacent to the back bedroom. The sofa in the great room can convert into a double bed which can accommodate 2 additional guests. Other amenities include wireless internet, expanded cable TV, DVD library, 2 computer work stations, introductory kit of coffee and tea service, spa robes, magnifying mirrors, bath products, umbrellas, hair dryers, books, games, tourism information, and dining menu guides.

Car: Recommended

Arcata is located just 7 miles north of Eureka and less than 40 minutes drive to both southern and northern State and National Redwood Parks, home to the tallest trees in the world. Enjoy majestic redwood groves, miles of pristine coastline, Humboldt Bay, a famous wildlife refuge, and a lively town square in arty, progressive Arcata, which is also home to Humboldt State University.

Between scenic Humboldt Bay and forested hills, our town is a popular destination for visitors to the redwoods and is the ideal 'home base' from which to take recreational day trips or attend events on the Arcata Plaza, including the Kinetic Sculpture Race, Oyster Festival, Pastels On The Plaza, North Country Fair, Arts Alive, and Saturday Farmers Market.

Within a 15-30 minute drive from Arcata, visit Old Town Eureka's Victorian Heritage District, the Victorian Village of

Ferndale, or the quaint fishing village of Trinidad, Trinidad Head, beaches, and Patrick's Point State Park.

 

Manager info

About: I have had a love affair with Arcata since I moved here nearly 40 years ago to attend Humboldt State University. I graduated and could not leave this special place; our progressive kinda quirky little university town is like none other. I own and operate Arcata Stay Lodging network, created in 2004, and manage Gateway Stay for my owner partners, a retired dentist and his wife.

Why Arcata:
The abundance of natural beauty just minutes away in any direction is phenomenal: the tallest most majestic redwood trees in the world, miles of unspoiled rugged coastline, sand dunes, lagoons, six beautiful rivers, ever changing Humboldt Bay, and Wildlife Refuges, to name a few. The redwood coast offers diverse recreational opportunities which attract visitors from around the world. I have hosted a good number of those visitors and guided them to the unique features of our area. I have developed friendships with guests who return again and again to visit their HSU students or family living in the area, attend our many festivals and events, conduct business, or come back to a getaway that they love. It is the perfect base from which to make day trips to the natural wonders of our region, and return at the end of the day to a lovely space with all the comforts of home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Arts, culture, music, theater, shopping, food and drink, being 'green' before it was groovy, a lively downtown Plaza, Humboldt State University, architecture, history, and a friendly embracing community make Arcata a destination not to be missed.
