The space
Health and Safety:

Cleanliness and attention to detail have always been of utmost importance to us. Nevertheless, we have beefed-up our already stringent cleaning protocols. Our skilled staff are well-equipped with Personal Protective Equipment and ample cleaning supplies. All linens are freshly washed for each stay, and we rigorously clean and disinfect all surfaces prior to your arrival.
Special attention is given to higher impact areas including all doorknobs, deadbolts, lock-boxes and keys, bistro tables, remotes and info sheets, light/lamp switches, pull chains for ceiling fans, thermostat, and pot and pan handles. Dishes are washed twice and sanitized to doubly ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment.
The outdoor tub rooms, of which two are our custom, anti-microbial copper, are bathed in sun and generally see minimal use and are also cleaned and disinfected twice a day. You will also find several hand sanitizing stations conveniently located for your added safety.
Additionally all guests are encouraged to be mindful and take their own recommended precautions.
Thank you for helping maintain a safe and tranquil environment for us all.

The Front Porch offers boutique lodging and a one of a kind of Hidden Bath experience with private outdoor soaking tubs and a custom cedar sauna.

With a number of unique and cozy studios nestled around a beautiful private courtyard, we are sure to have the perfect space for you. Boutique style bedding, hypo allergenic linens, and an award-winning Casper mattress make for a perfect night of rest. The Sleeping Lotus is one of our best creations yet!

A word about The Hidden Baths...
Our guests enjoy exclusive access to our luxurious cedar sauna and private outdoor soaking tubs. This one of a kind experience is included with your stay and we encourage you to take full advantage of it! Use of the tubs is first come first serve. With a number of highly unique private tub spaces you are sure to find something magical!

Breakfast. In your refrigerator you'll find 2 farm fresh eggs, and on the counter you'll find steel cut oats with the coffee, tea and popcorn. We invite you to harvest kale from our living wall located just across from the bike shed in the courtyard. If you are staying more than one night, and would like more eggs or other items don't hesitate to reach out to us.

The Area. Welcome to Humboldt! Come explore a land of ancient redwood forests, wild rivers and secluded beaches. We are centrally located between the two largest Old growth Redwood Forests in the world with Redwood National Park just 30 minutes to the north and Humboldt Redwoods State Park 40 minutes to the south.

The Town. Arcata is hip! This cute and cozy oasis is within walking distance to Arcata's Plaza with local shops and amazing restaurants, great yoga studios, fantastic breweries and more. Humboldt State University is just a two-minute drive away, and the Ma'leil beach and Dunes are a fantastic adventure that's just down the road on Samoa Boulevard. The Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary is less than a five minute walk down the road and the Arcata Community Redwood forest is just a mile away. Our close proximity to down town and HSU makes getting around easy.

Explore the town in style on one of our complimentary vintage community bicycles. Have a drink on the covered porch or relax by the pond. Snuggle up & Netflix. Whatever your reason for visiting Humboldt, stay with us and make yourself at home!


Other Things To Note:

Tax. Arcata requires a 12% short-term occupancy/bed tax (required from all hotels and vacation rentals in Humboldt County.), and AirBnB does not collect this tax so you will receive a special message from us with an alteration to your rate to include that tax.

Pets. We are pet friendly! If you are bringing a pet please be sure to read our pet policy and notify us at the time of booking. Please note: Our $15 nightly pet fee helps us cover the additional cost of cleaning and extra wear and tear these fur buddies naturally bring. Thank you for being a responsible pet friend!

Enter the private courtyard through a coded gate. Unit #2 is on the right side of the property (to the right of the pond when entering the courtyard, second door). Guests have access to everything inside this unit, along with use of our bistro tables, and benches throughout the luscious courtyard. Please use the space, that's what its there for!

I've lived in Arcata for eleven years and I'm so happy to call this beautiful place home. I moved here to attend HSU and received a degree in Elementary Education. Now my husband and I live in Blue Lake on our farm where we are raising almost eight-hundred fruit and nut trees and a small herd of beef cattle, which we sell at the Arcata Farmers Market on Saturdays (a must-visit if you're here on a weekend!!).
