WHALES TALE CABIN FABULOUS VIEWS, PRIVATE, HOT TUB

Arcata House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

WHERE THE MAD RIVER MEETS THE PACIFIC SURF: The Whale's Tale Cabin is a cozy bungalow style cottage sitting on the bluff overlooking the mouth of the Mad River as it meets the crashing breakers of the Pacific Ocean. From the western rooms and deck visitors can enjoy whale watching, viewing the myriad of wildlife on the Mad River, and just relax, taking in all the beauty that nature has to offer.

The Whales Tale Cabin is a home built in the 1960's situated in an eclectic neighborhood of million dollar view homes mixed with modest residences in the small community of McKinleyville just a few short miles north of Arcata off of Highway 101. To maintain the cozy mood of a cabin we have maintained the rustic feel of that time period while presenting an impeccably clean and comfortable ambiance with simple furnishings. There is also free WiFi to keep you connected with the 21st Century.

The quiet and secluded cabin is near downtown Mckinleyville, with a full service cinema, restaurants, and shops. The picturesque fishing village of Trinidad with its famous lighthouse is just ten minutes to the north. Parents and visitors to Humboldt State University are only 10 minutes from the campus. Nearby are gorgeous beaches, Patrick's Point State Park, Redwoods, hiking trails, and the artsy old-style lumber town of Arcata is just 10 minutes south. The Whale's Tale provides an exquisitely serene, relaxing, and private break from the usual mad rush of our hectic lifestyles. Call or E-mail for information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Before the whole glow faded, I wanted to write and tell you how very much we enjoyed our time at Whales Tale. I wished we had another day or two there. What an amazing view! And such a lovely, comfortable house. The weather was absolutely perfect, raining one night and clear and bright during the days. We woke yesterday morning to a double rainbow over the dunes. Thank you so much for allowing us bring our dog along and for sharing your cabin. You are a lucky man to own that place. I think I'd never leave if I did!

All best wishes, Joanne

Beautiful spot, wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5
This place is roomy, well equipped, comfortable, and in a great location. It was very well maintained and the owner, Richard, was very responsive and accommodating. This listing is very accurate and you can count on everything it claims.
The location was wonderful. The river, the immense ocean, the huge sky, the empty and natural beach. I could not stop looking out on all of it.
We rented for most of a week because we wanted to spend some time with our daughter, a student at HSU. She gave us the full tour of all the beaches, hiking trails, small towns, restaurants, and so much more. I would not hesitate to recommend this listing and am quite likely to rent there again!
Thank you Richard, for sharing your lovely place!

We were delighted with the accommodation, if not the washer, which chose to die on our watch. The accommodation was warm, comfortable, beautiful, accessible to the highway and thus Trinidad, McKville, and Arcata. The house was so good that we cannot imagine looking for anyplace else next time.

Our Stay October 19th 2013 thru Oct 24th 2013

  • 5 of 5
Words can not describe the feeling my family and I felt as we walked in the Whales Tale.
The Cabin was beautiful and neat as a pin. The View was breath taking beyond belief. After visiting the Red Woods and seeing the Pacific, we would come "home" and relax in the hot tub. The cool ocean breeze from the Pacific was felt on my face and the warm water from the hot tub would settle me into a calm relaxing state. Richard the Owner of the cabin was very accommodating and agreeable. I must mention the beds. The most comfortable beds we ever slept in.
I can't wait to go back. We did not have time for everything that Richard mentioned to take in. If you want a nice place to stay with comforting views and all accomodations at your fingertips stay at the Whales Tale. You will NOT be disappointed.

Fantastic visit

My 12 yr old son and I spent a week at the Whale's Tail during late July and it was the perfect place to stay. It's clean, comfortable, the hot tub is a great feature, nearby grocery store, in house laundry, great view. Hard to beat!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at your little house and wished we could just move in. The home was comfortable and had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and watching the birds flying by. We stayed over Easter and even had an egg hunt in the yard. The kitchen was well equipped. Having a washer and dryer was useful. We rode the bikes along the nearby trail and also discovered a nice hiking park just down the road. The location was convenient and quiet. Groceries were close by as was the golf course.

We plan to rent Whale Tale Cabin again the next time we visit the Arcata area.
