About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
The Whales Tale Cabin is a home built in the 1960's situated in an eclectic neighborhood of million dollar view homes mixed with modest residences in the small community of McKinleyville just a few short miles north of Arcata off of Highway 101. To maintain the cozy mood of a cabin we have maintained the rustic feel of that time period while presenting an impeccably clean and comfortable ambiance with simple furnishings. There is also free WiFi to keep you connected with the 21st Century.
The quiet and secluded cabin is near downtown Mckinleyville, with a full service cinema, restaurants, and shops. The picturesque fishing village of Trinidad with its famous lighthouse is just ten minutes to the north. Parents and visitors to Humboldt State University are only 10 minutes from the campus. Nearby are gorgeous beaches, Patrick's Point State Park, Redwoods, hiking trails, and the artsy old-style lumber town of Arcata is just 10 minutes south. The Whale's Tale provides an exquisitely serene, relaxing, and private break from the usual mad rush of our hectic lifestyles. Call or E-mail for information.

About the owner: We grew up in Arcata and Blue Lake and love the ocean, beaches, and Redwoods of Humboldt County. Among the owners are a chiropractor, and a school administrator, an orthodontist, and a retired school psychologist. We all have grandchildren, but remember, 60 is the new 40 (or something like that).
Why the Owner Chose McKinleyville, California, United States of America:
The views are fabulous and the river amazingly alive with wildlife; we keep the Whales Tale Cabin immaculate, and the value is great. Truly a "one of a kind" property. Very private. Very comfortable. Very cozy.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Incredibly Private, Serene, Relaxing, I think the best views within miles, Comfortable, Convenient Location far enough away and yet close enough to conveniences.
