Overview

About the property

1920's Home with Redwood Floors. Walking distance to Plaza, 10min to HS

Charming 1920's home with redwood floors, classic fixtures, and beautiful bathroom tile. After walking along the tranquil nearby Arcata Marsh, snuggle up in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot tea. Four blocks from plaza, 10 from HSU . One block to bus stop, supermarket. Glass doors open onto deck and lush backyard. Warm living room, large kitchen. Two comfy queen beds, one futon couch. (Third bedroom is the living room). Bedrooms have separate bathroom entrances.

It's an easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants.

This is a classic older home with lots of charm. It's ready to be your home base while you visit Humboldt county. I am always close to my phone if you need anything and my property manager is just around the corner.

We have recently responded to feedback from our guests and added to the kitchen supplies. Enjoy Netflix on the large tv. We've also clarified the tv navigation.

The location is generally ideal: walk to the plaza in four minutes and a enjoy a glass of wine on the plaza at the Libation wine bar. Or dine on delicious Italian food at Abruzzi's. Four blocks to J street and you can soak at an enchanting hot tub establishment nestled in lovely gardens.

We look forward to making your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

Summer's end at Arcata

  • 4 of 5

Alan is a gracious host and very responsive to any inquiries or requests. Our stay was pleasant and the beds are comfortable. Easy access to market and pharmacy. Fun browsing at the weekly farmer's market. Daily walks at the Arcata Marsh - birds, otters, plants galore. Many redwood forest excursions. Lots of historical sites to experience.

Nice clean place will stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Arcata Cottage was the perfect cozy cottage for my week trip. The pictures were accurate. Alan responded quickly after I booked and provided check-in instructions for a smooth arrival. Walking distance to Grocery Store and the Arcata Plaza shops, art stores good food.

Nice place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Nice little place, the common areas and the bedrooms were actually good sized and comfortable. Loved having a very private backyard to sit and relax in during the evenings. It was nice to have a large kitchen to cook in so that we didn't have to eat out every meal. Definitely better than a hotel!! I will use this place again in the future.
