  • Very Relaxing

    "My husband and I stayed hear because we need an ocean fix once in awhile. We live in the high desert but, we love the ocean. The cottage had awesome veiws of the ocean. It was very clean and quite and relaxing. My husband enjoyed the walks down to the beach cove. We also appreciate the information Ginny gave us for where to eat and things to do within driving distance. We will probably stay here again sometime in the future."

  • Great for group, Great location

    "We just got back from 10 days at this lovely home. We had five in our group, including myself (mom) with two college age and two elementary kids. Best part of the home is the very large and open kitchen/great room/dining area. The wall of windows overlooking the redwood grove and the bay view while dining was spectacular. Kitchen was adequate, everything we needed (except perhaps a knife sharpener) to whip up several meals. After going to the farmer's market-an event in itself-we gave the kitchen quite a work out. Also a nice grocery about 3 minutes away. The décor is simple, with many nice pieces of artwork on the walls. Perhaps the third upstairs bedroom could have used a chest of drawers, but the college kids lived out of a suitcase, so no big deal for us. Five slept comfortably without even using the other two bedrooms downstairs. You will be close to everything: redwood parks, beaches, Eureka for dining, minutes to the marsh-perfect location. We loved the place and hope to be back!"

  • Fantastic Place for Family Fun

    "The entire family (12) spent three days at Christmas enjoying this wonderful home that had everything that anyone could expect. Outdoor activities included rock fishing at Salt Point, hot tubbing and reading on the large deck, mushroom hunting using a guide found in the well-stocked library. Indoor activities included viewing fishing boats out at sea with the resident telescope, solving a multitude of jig saw puzzles, playing lots of canasta, eating home cooked meals and of course enjoying everyone's company 'cause there was no television to distract attention from the purpose of the family reunion. There are two master bedrooms and the four others took care of those who did not yell "shotgun." After a lot of rain and winds on the coast, the weather for the days we were onsite was absolutely perfect. None the less we like to use the fireplace in the early morning and after 5:00 pm when it started getting dark. Travelled up to Gualala to find a very nice bakery that helped make a birthday party a big success. We would recommend this property for all ages and appreciated the fact that pets were not allowed. The well-stocked kitchen was super. We decided not to go out for dinner and risk driving in fog and windy, narrow roads."

  • Great spot for families at graduation

    "We made our last trip to Arcata to celebrate our last HSU graduate. This was by far the most fun we've had as far as properties to stay in. The cabin was equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed quiet time on the deck, reading and having coffee in the morning and then celebrating with our graduate and her friends one evening. We brought along a propane fire pit which allowed us to spend time outdoors in the evening comfortably. Two 80 year old's shared the downstairs bed and we younger 50 something year olds shared the very comfortable living area in the loft. We headed east one afternoon just a short distance and found Mad River, had an enjoyable picnic there one sunny afternoon. At night we found the Blue River (smokey, cough cough) Casino and won some money, too! Farmers Market on Saturday is always a must. I think it would have been nice to have a microwave at the cabin; if only for the reason that we like our coffee HOT! Krista, the owner, rescued us on more than one occasion, she was wonderful to loan us an iron and board, and to open up the cabin when we locked the keys inside...should have paid more attention to that advice to leave key in the lockbox...Almost sad that we don't have any more kids at HSU cause we would definitely rent this place again!!!"
