1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Stay and relax in our pet friendly cottage by the beach! Shell Cottage is a private cottage with located on a canal with a securely fenced front and back yard for your kids and dog. Dock access is gated and offers a slip for canoes, kayaks, and row boats if you choose to bring them. (Access is definitely tide sensitive). A public, dog-friendly beach with gentle waves is a wonderful place for walks, picnics, and sand castles.

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!

Reviewer Comments:

The house was lovely,well appointed and very clean. The location is walking distance to the beach. The street in King Salmon is somewhat distressed but the gated front yard give a lot of privacy and you don't see the neighborhood. If you want to stay here book early as this house is rarely available.

Reviewer Comments:

King Salmon was perfectly located for us. House was clean and sunny, the neighborhood was quiet, though funky (in a good way) and we could walk across the dunes to the bay. Jasmin and staff were great and available for questions. Deposit returned promptly. Great stay overall. A good addition might be use of a kayak or canoe from the backyard dock.

Reviewer Comments:

We moved from Eureka 8 years ago & were back for a memorial service. We did not want to stay in a motel & Shell Cottage sounded perfect. It was even nicer than anticipated. Perfect for our Shih Tzu as it was completely fenced. It was nice to have old friends over for meals. The cottage was very well stocked. We felt very safe & all neighbors were friendly The only concern were the steps over the berm

Reviewer Comments:

The driving instructions were very clear. Access was easy with codes and combinations and easy to follow instructions. The house was clean and comfortable. I especially loved the kitchen which was well-equipped and I prefer to cook at home than dine out.

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!
