Our restored, historic cottage is at the center of our vibrant community. Just two blocks from the Plaza and in close walking distance (5 minutes or less) to the best farmers' market, two natural grocery stores, several cafes, restaurants, a creperie, an excellent independent movie theater, an art store, record and book stores, and within a 10-15 minute walk to Redwood Park and the Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary. This bright, cozy cottage is truly in the heart of downtown Arcata. Come stay!
“This place is exactly as represented. Everything works, the touches are thoughtful, and all the products and amenities are superior. Beautiful gas range, excellent location -- walk to anything in Arcata including square, restaurants on the north end. Bring your bike! Drop down "I" St. and ride all throughout the marsh or take the bike path to Eureka. Maria is a super attentive host, easy to reach, always responsive. Look at the photos. If you want a cozy, unpretentious, highly functional small space right in town (though it is quiet!) do not hesitate to come here. --Kenneth P”
This studio is above our detached garage, about 30ft. in front of our house. It has a private entrance with stairs up to the loft. Perfect for one or two people. We share this property with some stray cats, a couple of deer friends, and pesky racoons. As we are about 40 yds off the road, there is private parking with motion detecting nightlights and a sidewalk leading to the entrance. The room has a small refrigerator, micro-wave oven, student desk and old, wooden office chair. Two folding chairs and a table are provided for sitting on the balcony. There is a twin bed and a scissor futon couch that makes into a full-sized bed. Towels, soap, shampoo and bedding for the couch-bed are provded. Private parking is 20 ft. from the entrance with motion detecting nightlights for your safety. Guest will have access to the studio and our yard, which borders on a dedicated wetlands. There are no trails. We are providing a clean, quiet and private space for guest to enjoy their time here in Arcata and Humboldt County. We are availabe for directions and recommendations, otherwise, we ask that our privacy be respected. Our neighborhood is quiet and rural, surrounded by trees. We have deer that roam our yard, sometimes on a daily basis. There is a good coffee/ sandwhich shop about 50yds from the house - they do not give "to go" cups, so we provide them. There is a small shopping center 1 mile towards Arcata that has a friendly neighborhood market, laundromat, hardware store and restaurant. This is a bike friendly area, with wide bike lanes. We are 2.5 miles from Humboldt State University - a 5 minute drive or a 10 minute bike ride. We are 3 miles southeast of Arcata and 4 miles northeast of Eureka. We are 1 mile from the nearest public transit. It is at Sunny Brae shopping center. This is the southernmost point for the Mad River transit and connects in Arcata to Redwood Transit that connects Fortuna, Eureka and Trinidad.
“Jerry is a great host. Communications were consistent. He is flexible with your bookings and arrival times and keeps the place clean. Simple accommodations for the simple traveler. Solid internet connection and WiFi. Really peaceful part of Arcata area and good point to venture out into the majestic Redwood country. I will be back for sure.”

“I highly recommend Janna’s place if you are in the area. The space was larger than we expected and super cozy. The directions were perfect. We got in fairly late and had no trouble getting situated. I only wish I was in the area more often. 10/10 would stay there again.”
