“Thoughtfully designed and so cozy”

What a beautifully designed and cozy vacation home! Every detail was impeccable in this sanctuary in the trees--we especially enjoyed waking every morning to see the sunrise in the forest. It met and exceeded our expectations and we would recommend it highly. Several nights we got take out from Wildberries and enjoyed eating "at home" including one evening with some fabulous local Humbolt Fog Cheese paired with the thotful bottle of wine left for us in the cottage upon our arrival. Breakfast at the Big Blue Cafe and Bagels at Los Bagels were fabulous. Went to the Farmer's market in Arcata on Saturday and we caught a movie at the Minor Theater, an historical movie house downtown. During a visit to nearby Eureka, we took a horse and carriage ride through the historical district and afterwards enjoyed local oysters and beer in Old Town

“Clean and upscale”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The house was better than the pictures - clean and updated fixtures. It was cold outside so the heated floors kept the house toasty. The view was very relaxing and felt secluded, even though you are in a neighborhood. This gave me peace of mind without having to be staying on top of someone. The town was cozy and had a coffee shop (delicious fresh homemade baked goods) and a grocery store a mile away. It was also very easy to get to highway 101.
We had one small issue with the gas stove (never used gas before) and called our contact around 8:00PM. She answered the phone right away and was extremely nice when answering all of our questions. She even offered to stop by the house if we needed further explanation, and said she we could call her day or night if we had any questions.
I would have rated the house an Excellent, but it was very pricey! After the cleaning fee, non-refundable damage protection fee, and booking fee, it get to be a bit pricey.

“Calm and beautiful!”

The streets leading to this location do not give way to the idea of a serene getaway, but once you arrive, you are transported to a calm, relaxing home. This vacation rental is nestled among redwoods, but a very short drive from the downtown area of Arcata.

Everything was clean and lovely. It was nice to stay at a place furnished with a real kitchen. The amenities and furnishings were very pleasant. It really felt like staying in a home rather than a hotel. We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere inside the house as well as outside. The backyard had comfortable seating, perfect for drinking hot cocoa and relaxing in the evening.

We cannot wait to return here and look forward to our next trip.
