Overview

About the property

Sweet Little Cabin in the Trees....

Welcome to The Cabin on Creekside Commons. This secluded getaway offers the best of both worlds: a beautiful, rural setting with an easy 10 minute drive (or 30 minute scenic bike ride) to both downtown Eureka and downtown Arcata.

Creekside Commons is a beautiful jointly owned five acre retreat in the heart of the redwoods. Our goals include eliminating boundaries and pursuing common goals when possible. One goal we have in common, is to be able to provide a healing and restful retreat for our guests. Whether you choose to stay at the Cottage or the Cabin we hope your stay with us is rejuvenating and adventuresome.

Step outside and into an enchanted redwood grove,, enjoy fresh vegetables from our organic garden, luxuriate with an outdoor shower or hot tub, meditate in your own redwood sanctuary grove, spend an evening by the fire pit.

We are excited to be able to offer an on site massage therapist. Ryan Knotts has 9 years experience as a massage therapist and is trained in many massage/bodywork modalities including:

Swedish techniques for those who want a relaxing massage that increases circulation and decreases stress, deep tissue/ therapeutic body work for those who have specific ailments, clothed body work and energy massage for those who prefer a stretching style or Reiki style massage and acupressure for those who prefer pressure point and meridian therapy. His focus is on listening to the body and breath, and finding ways to work with the client to exact real change in the muscles and overall health.

There's plenty to see and do in the area. Enjoy events such as the Kinetic Sculpture Race, North Country Fair, Film Festivals and weekly farmer's markets. Humboldt county has multiple wine tasting rooms and craft beers. Live music and theatre are cornerstones of Humboldt county culture. For the outdoor adventurer, enjoy the majestic redwood forests, guided birdwatching tours, miles of coastal beaches and sunny days at inland rivers.

This is a very "sweet" cabin indeed! Very clean, cute, quiet space with everything you need! My only concern is the hotel size mini refrigerator, but if you are not planning a great deal of food and cooking big meals this place is Perfect!!! John was very welcoming and helpful

Quiet and peaceful place..great home base for a PCH journey

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is a great place to be away from the city and an excellent location to base yourself for exploring N CA and the PCH. We were not in much during "normal houes", so I cannot say if it is quiet during the day, but it was perfect at night. The owners have stocked the cabin with all the necessities. We did not want for anything. The owners were courteous and helpul, but also give you privacy. I am very happy we booked this property. We will be back.

Great hosts, great location. We really enjoyed everything about the cabin, especially the setting.

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely stay here again.

We especially enjoyed the fire pit on the edge of the redwood forest, the private jacuzzi, fresh strawberries and veggies from the garden, and the quiet atmosphere.

John gave us a great run-down of where everything was upon our arrival and was available if we needed anything further.

Our puppy had an amazing time romping around with Zoe the dog. I hope Zoe had fun too :)

All in all, this is a wonderful property with wonderful people and I'm thankful to have experienced it. It absolutely beats a hotel or other location in town.

Ok but not private

  • 3 of 5

The room was cute and had the basics. The owners house is literally 8 feet off the front door of the cabin and the hot tub is on their deck not the cabins. Too close for a private getaway. The owners were nice and its a pretty property.
