“Hidden Treasure Near Eureka”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2006

The Chumayo Spa in Blue Lake California is one of those hidden travel treasures that you feel compelled to share. Blue Lake is minutes away from Eureka and Arcata and a good rest stop on your way through the magnificent Humboldt Forest. Blue Lake has a very evident commune/community feel to it but, ironically, it's also home to Blue Lake Casino (skip the casino and walk around and enjoy the architecture in Blue Lake). My husband and I found Chumayo Spa through some Redwoods tourism site. The spa owners rent out the upper loft over the spa. It is a completely contained apartment and you have it all to yourself. Thoughtful touches included a welcome note, stocked kitchen with breakfast staples, bottled water, tons of fluffy towels and a selection of DVDs. We booked spa services as well and walked downstairs and indulged in phenomenal hot stone massages. Afterwards, we hung out in the hot tub and enjoyed the tranquility of this amazing place. The spa's apartment rental is not like staying in a hotel (no front desk, no room service, no elevator) but, even better, it is like being left the key to a friend's vacation house for the weekend. Highly recommended.
