About The Owner

I have had a love affair with Arcata since I moved here over 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 Streamside Stay for my owner partners, Arcata environmental consultants.

Why The Owner chose 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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

5 of 5 stars

Reviewed September 2, 2014

We really enjoyed our one night stay at the Streamside: comfortable bedrooms, great living area to spread out in, convenient and quiet location. We only used the kitchen for breakfast but it seemed well equipped. It was great to see the thoughtful compost and recycling set up. (After staying here, it felt like we were walking eco-disasters on the rest of our trip, since few hotels or condos offer even the most basic of recycling options.) The Co-op a couple of minutes' walk away was perfect for picking up baked goods and fruit to go with coffee at the condo.

The apartment was perfect. We walked to groceries, restaurants, shopping, and the community forest from the apartment. It was clean and well stocked.

Owner's Response: Thank you L.B. for your glowing 5 star review of Arcata Stay's Streamside Stay vacation rental. I am glad you could enjoy the "walkability around Arcata" of your central location in town and enjoy what our progressive college community has to offer visitors (and locals alike). If your travels bring you back to the redwood coast for a future visit, we would be most happy to accommodate you. Cheers and happy summer, Christy for Arcata Stay Lodging Network............

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.
