The Shell Cottage is a cute little one-bedroom home right on a canal in King Salmon, a fichining village just south of Eureka. The Master bedroom has a queen bed, little sitting area and access the back yard and canal. The living room features a large flat screen TV with cable an DVD, a cozy sitting area with queen pull-out couch, and fresh nautical charm. The dining area seats 4, there’s also a picnic table in front yard for some outdoor dining. The bathroom is spacious and features a large jetted tub with shower. There also gas barbecue in the back yard and seating by the dock and canal (See Photos).

A family of river otters frequent the area, as do sea lions and sea birds of all types. Great fishing on the jetties on either side of the beach that are within walking distance.

Shell Cottage is located across the street from Johnny's Marina and RV Park (with long term tenants in trailers as well) where you can slip your boat overnight or have extra guests stay in the RV campground with full hook-ups. Local dining is available with walking distance at famous local restaurant Gil's and also the Boathouse.

Things nearby to do include the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge (which experienced kayakers can reach by bay) the Avenue of the Giants, Sequoia Park and Zoo, Bear River and Blue Lake Casinos, Old Town Eureka, Woodley Island, and much more. A little further away we have Prairie Creek State Park (where Return of the Jedi was filmed) and Fern Canyon (where Jurassic Park was filmed). Do not forget about Humboldt Lagoons for kayaking, shelling, fishing, and swimming and Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Samoa Dunes and Samoa Cookhouse.

Eureka itself is just a few miles away with malls, Costco, and theaters and many other things you may need. The thriving arts communities in Victorian Ferndale, Arcata, and Eureka have much to offer both day and night including live shows, art exhibits, and community events. Del Arte in Blue Lake is always offering wonderful, innovative shows as well as Mad River Brewer tasting room, one of the many fine breweries in Humboldt County. Many of those same communities have Arts Alive nights one night per month. Plenty to do - come to the Shell Cottage and enjoy all we have to offer!

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!

Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals is an amazingly professional group. From the welcome email, with all for the information you could need, to the well cared for property, to the great area guide on the app, to the check out info, this is a great group to rent from. The shell cottage was perfect for my wife and I. A short walk to the dunes and beach was great for our stay. The selection of books and movies was a nice surprise for a stormy day. The area was quiet and we felt safe at all times. The area might look a little rough when you first drive up but everyone was friendly and gave us pointers for the area. Remember you are behind the Redwood Curtain, things are laid back. We are looking forward to renting this property again in 2018!!! Thanks for making our quick get a way from Oregon very relaxing and fun!

We had stayed at this lovely hideaway during the summer and couldn't wait to return. It is such a lovely area and brings us close to Humboldt state where my son attends college. The rental is always clean an comfortable and inviting with an atmosphere of peace and quiet. We will return again and again.

Reviewer Comments:

She'll Cottage is a very comfortable cottage, with enclosed garden and dock. It is very well maintained and has a well equipped kitchen. We stayed here because we brought our kayak and could launch from the dock and paddle around the lagoon. I probably wouldn't stay here if I didn't have one. The area is a little sketchy, and not particularly attractive. Good fish n chips around the corner.

Located in the quaint fishing village of Salmon Creek - just 5 minutes south of Eureka. Surrounded by the bay and you can see the harbor entrance to the Pacific nearby - short boat ride. Also, nice fishing off the jetties that you can walk to. Great for kayaking too!
