About The Owner

I have had a love affair with Arcata since I moved here over 40 years ago to attend Humboldt State University. I graduated and could not leave this special place; our progressive kinda quirky little university town is like none other. I own and operate Arcata Stay Lodging network, created in 2004, and manage Forest View Stay for my owner partner, an Arcata resident.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2004

Why The Owner chose Pacific

The abundance of natural beauty just minutes away in any direction is phenomenal: the tallest most majestic redwood trees in the world, miles of unspoiled rugged coastline, sand dunes, lagoons, six beautiful rivers, ever changing Humboldt Bay, and Wildlife Refuges, to name a few. The redwood coast offers diverse recreational opportunities which attract visitors from around the world. I have hosted a good number of those visitors and guided them to the unique features of our area. I have developed friendships with guests who return again and again to visit their HSU students or family living in the area, attend our many festivals and events, conduct business, or come back to a getaway that they love. It is the perfect base from which to make day trips to the natural wonders of our region, and return at the end of the day to a lovely space with all the comforts of home.

What makes this studio unique

Arts, culture, music, theater, shopping, food and drink, being 'green' before it was groovy, a lively downtown Plaza, architecture, history, Humboldt State University, and a friendly embracing community make Arcata a destination not to be missed.

Reviewed September 9, 2014

Such a pretty place to stay in Arcata. Very, very clean and very close to Humboldt campus.

Studio, so very open floor plan. Loved the balcony to sit outside in evening with a glass of wine. Lovely places to eat in downtown Arcata. Would love to stay here again in the future!

Easy to set up accommodations online. Call backs are very prompt.

What an awesome great place for a small family or friends with pets. It was beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Just a fantastic and clean property, truly love our stay. The design and craftsmanship was amazing, someone took time to make this a well built studio, but it's more like a a small apartment. Centrally located on he edging Arcata, walkable to down town, dog and kid friendly.

Location and everything you need

  • 5 of 5

I know this property intermittently as I knew the prior owner and spent a great deal of time at this house. Nothing has been left out of this property, everything you would ever want is there for you. Super clean and its all about location. You can walk anywhere you want in Arcata. Park the car in your private space and never use it again. This is "THE" property in Arcata you should rent.

Arcata is located just 7 miles north of Eureka and less than 40 minutes drive to both southern and northern State and National Redwood Parks, home to the tallest trees in the world. Enjoy majestic redwood groves, miles of pristine coastline, Humboldt Bay, a famous wildlife refuge, and a lively town square in arty, progressive Arcata, which is also home to Humboldt State University.

Between scenic Humboldt Bay and forested hills, our town is a popular destination for visitors to the redwoods and is the ideal 'home base' from which to take recreational day trips or attend events on the Arcata Plaza, including the Kinetic Sculpture Race, Oyster Festival, Pastels On The Plaza, North Country Fair, Arts Alive, and Saturday Farmers Market. Within a 15-30 minute drive from Arcata, visit Old Town Eureka's Victorian Heritage District, the Victorian Village of Ferndale, or the quaint fishing village of Trinidad, Trinidad Head, beaches, and Patrick's Point State Park.
