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.

Sweet little cabin, perfect get away for one or two

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly what I expected based on the description. John was a great host, offering us the bounty of the large garden on the property. This was a great base for exploring the region.

My Husband and I had a wonderful time. We loved the privacy and the beautiful redwoods.

  • 5 of 5

The property was fabulous, we went hiking right out the backyard of our cabin. There was a fire pit for, jacuzzi, bbq, outdoor picnic table all just beautiful we couldnt ask for a better place to spend our honeymoon. The cabin was clean and well stocked with coffee, spices, all little things you might have forgotten on your trip and a very nice view from the quaint little bar to eat at in our cabin. Along with a very comfortable bed.

Lovely cabin in peaceful and central location

  • 5 of 5

For such a small cabin, it somehow managed to have everything we could ask for during our 3 day getaway. The setting is great - open space and redwoods just a short walk away. John is an ideal host - helpful, interesting and very respectful of your privacy. He invited us to pick some fresh lettuce for a salad from the garden in front of the cabin and it was delicious. Only a 15 minute drive, at most, to downtown Eureka or Arcata. Wonderful place to stay and we will be back. Thanks to John & Janet for sharing.

Not quite what you expect.

  • 2 of 5

The description should be more clear and direct. The Commons is a communal property.

Simple, comfortable and adequate place to get away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as described on the website. If you like what you see you will not be disappointed. Very simple and down to earth but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. John respects your privacy but is available to help you if necessary. The hot tub is an added plus if enjoy that type of thing and we definitely do. We had our dog and cat with us and they both enjoyed staying here as well. Highly recommend taking the scenic "Lost Coast " loop drive via Ferndale and the "Howland Hill Rd" scenic drive through the old growth redwoods in Crescent City. This was our second visit, we have explored a lot of areas along the entire Redwood Hwy and these were definitely the top two. Will definitely stay at John's again on our next visit.
