About the property

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

Upscale Serene Redwood Retreat in Arcata - Perfect Couple's Retreat. Open studio layout on park setting surrounded by Redwoods. You really do feel like you are on a retreat when you are here. Great place for an artist or writer looking for a sanctuary in the Redwoods but still in Arcata. Tastefully furnished and decorated with hardwood floors with radiant floor heating. Wonderful kitchen and nice dining area. The shower is wonderful with it's skylights and tiling all of the way up the walls. Super comfy bed as well.

Whether you are here on business or pleasure, this will be a wonderful home to relax in after a busy day or this home itself maybe your vacation...

Any 30 day booking will be charged double the cleaning fee. If it is not automatically added in your booking, we will add the charge for you. We do this because we come in mid-stay and change your linens and do some light cleaning!

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I stayed at this house for our honeymoon. It was beautiful, comfortable and we loved waking up to the views of the trees every morning. When we got to the house we had no trouble getting in with our code, however the information Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals gave us was incorrect. The information on the house provided us with a code for a lock box to access a washer and dryer in the garage. The lockbox code was not working, so I called the number they provided and left a voicemail, only to receive a text from that number informing me I had the wrong number and they had no idea what I was talking about. When I called Redwood Coast I was almost scolded,” you do not need to have access to the garage” and I let them know they gave me the wrong information. My husband and I were anticipating having a washer dryer because our stay was 4 nights. We ended up only staying 3 nights. The house itself is truly lovely, and we ran into the owner one morning and she was so kind and sweet. Overall it was a very relaxing and wonderful honeymoon, I just wish Redwood Coast had been more on top of things

Owner's Response: Thank you for this nice review and feedback. We had just updated the lock on the door and we tried to get everyone the new information but we did fail to get you this information before your arrival and we apologize for that. All guests now have thier own personal code for entry into the Retreat! We did take access to the washer and garage off the listing over a year ago and i have revisited our listing description and can not find where you read that this was available. Our apologies if you felt misinformed. There are laundry facilities in town where you can wash yourselves of do drop off. This property is lovely and glad you had a nice honeymoon. Congratulations!

Reviewer Comments:

It was relatively new cottage. Nicely appointed, comfy bed etc. a little light in the kitchen but sufficient to cook and enjoy fully. All in all very nice. Loved the beach below the Humbolt Marine Center in Trinidad. Really a treat for someone with an interest in geology.

Owner's Response: Thanks for leaving a review of your stay at Serene Redwood Retreat! It's a beautiful cottage, tucked nicely into it's own private redwood grove, yet near enough to shops to make it conveniently located. There's lots to see and do here, and the HSU Marine Lab is a great destination, as well as the town of Trinidad itself. Lonely Planet has declared the Redwood Coast the #1 travel destination for 2018, and I'm inclined agree, we've a wealth of beauty, as well as over 100+ homes to stay in while discovering what the North Coast has to offer!

The property was very clean and up to date in a gorgeous, redwood setting. There was hiking nearby and even larger parks roughly 45 minutes to the north and south of the city.

This was the best vacation rental ever. The setting is like being in a tree house where is is private, quiet and luxourious . But ..only 2 nights! Wish it was longer. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed. It was as clean as could be and the extra touches..cookies, coffee were very thoughtful. We look forward to returning to this retreat in the redwoods. I would only change one thing..being able to check in before 3pm.

If you want to stay in a very comfortable place in the middle of the redwoods, this is it. The layout of this rental is perfect - everything is right where it should be. Comfortable furnishings, everything you need to feel right at home. It was clean, it was very nice, very comfortable - we loved it. Only piece of advice would be to maybe make available two towels per guest rather than just one, especially for more than 3 day stays. You can see the pride of ownership in this rental. It was ideal.

Serene Redwood Retreat is just that. Beautifully appointed, everything you need. And the trees through the multiple windows make you feel like you are in a very special place. I didn't have any issues with light in the AM -- slept like a baby. Pretty centrally located to everything I wanted to do

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had the opportunity to rent Jane's home with some friends from college. I feel that the title Magic Garden Home is an understatement...Jane's home is a real Oasis. The town of Arcata is cute, has loads of charm, and awesome redwood forest hikes, but my friends and I found ourselves wanting to spend most of our time at the house. From the sounds of trickling water of the small fountains, to the Buddha statues, the rose garden, natural hot tub, and deck that blocked any wind--it all made us feel so zen. One of my friends said repeatedly "I'm never leaving this house." I felt that same way. :) While we didn't meet in person (her nice neighbor greeted and oriented us to the home), Jane and I talked on the phone, emailed and text messaged--she was very accommodating and available for any questions/recommendations during our stay. Thanks Jane--we will all remember your place for a long long time, and hope to stay again sometime. :)

Map

You are close to Humboldt State University. The Redwoods Park is close by with plenty of hiking and biking trails. You are about 1 mile from downtown Arcata restaurants and shops. The home is nestled in the Redwoods and quite private and quiet. Very relaxing
