About Mercedes Compton

My husband, Craig, and I have been married for 30 years and love Humboldt County! We met while attending Humboldt State University in the 1980s and stayed here. We have a beautiful son and daughter-in-law; we love to visit them and the rest of our family up and down the coast. Traveling also allows us to indulge in our passion for mid century furniture and decor. The 'hunt' for that iconic mid century piece is what keeps us going, and we can think nothing better than to share some of our finds with you! It's interesting how we look back in time to find the most modern way of living - look to the past to create interiors that are in the vanguard of fashion. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. We are only minutes away and are available if you have any questions or issues during your stay.

Mercedes Compton purchased this house in 2015

Why Mercedes Compton chose North Coast

Eureka is peppered with wonderful mid century homes. We fell in love with this mid century home because of its beautiful architecture. The home was built in 1959 and designed by Walter K. Blackburn.

What makes this house unique

This home is situated on a dead-end street with a beautiful, natural redwood setting. You will enjoy walking in this neighborhood, and Henderson Center is only s few blocks away; there you will find a drug store, hair salon, sandwich shop, bakery, post office, thrift stores, pet store, and banking institutions. The Farmer's Market is also found there during the Spring/Summer where you can buy fresh organic produce!

Very cool home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a lot of VRBO homes over the years and this is one of the coolest ones! It is well-kept and decorated in a fun, mid-century style. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. Mercedes checked in with us when we arrived to make sure we had what we needed. I would definitely recommend this house!

The Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin?! This home is tastefully decorated with many period items. Our stay was very comfortable and thoughtful touches were everywhere. Open floor plan with skylights to allow natural light throughout. Beds were comfortable and linens plentiful. The back yard is beautifully landscaped with wild flowers, fruit trees and natural Redwoods. Peaceful and quiet setting. A perfect home in amazing condition. You won't be disappointed.

We were ecstatic with this home. The weather was unexpectedly cold and windy when we were in Eureka, but the house is so spacious and comfortable that we didn't mind at all. The hot tub was a pleasure, the garden with redwood trees lovely, and I've never seen such a well-appointed kitchen in a home that is a rental. When we got there, the table was already laid out for dinner with candles and cloth napkins. From the bed linens to towels, all was high quality and luxurious. We hope to come back again next year.

Spectacular getaway

  • 5 of 5

Eureka ended up being a bit rainy the days we were there which was okay because we were content in this gorgeous mid century modern home. We just spent a little extra time relaxing and taking in the beauty in the mornings and evenings. The house was exceptionally clean and the kitchen fully stocked with all the tools you might forget while on the road. There was coffee to get us going in the morning and games, puzzles, and movies to help occupy the kids.

An amazing home. Truly 5 star.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in vacation homes in the U.S.A., Canada, and Europe for many years and this is absolutely the best. The pictures don't do it justice. The owner has stocked it with everything imaginable. If you are a Mad Men fan, it would be like staying in Don Draper's home. Check out the cabinet of martini glasses and shaker...and all of the other period items. A film star did actually stay there but I won't be a spoiler on that one. The owner is extremely helpful. We left a redwoods souvenir poster behind. She sent us a text when she found it and mailed it to us.

This was our first trip to Eureka and we are looking forward to the next. Don't be concerned about the negative comments on downtown; it is perfectly safe and has some charming restaurants. The zoo is close and well worth a visit. Recommend that you also take a walk around the "alphabet" streets near this home. The neighborhood is full of Mid Century and

Craftsman homes...but none as neat as this one.
