PARKSIDE COTTAGE. WALK TO TOWN SQUARE AND H.S.U. GREAT LOCATION

Arcata Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Arcata is located on Humboldt Bay just 7 miles north of Eureka, 10 minutes to beaches, and less than an hour's drive to State and National Redwood Parks, home to the tallest trees in the world.

Enjoy lush redwood groves, miles of pristine coastline, a famous wildlife refuge and a lively town square in a progressive and colorful city. Arcata, which is located between scenic Humboldt Bay and a forested hillside, is a popular destination for visitors who come to experience the tallest trees in the world, enjoy rafting down swift flowing rivers, walk along uncrowded beaches and attend events on the town square, including the Kinetic Sculpture Race, the Oyster Festival, Pastels On The Plaza, the North Country Fair, Arts Alive and the Farmers Market (Saturdays only).

Within a 15 to 30 minute drive from Arcata other popular destinations include Eureka's Waterfront District, also known as 'Old Town', the Victorian Village of Ferndale (where parts of the Majestic and Outbreak were filmed), the quaint fishing village of Trinidad and Patricks Point State Park.

This craftsman-inspired cottage is in a quiet neighborhood adjacent to Stewart Park and is only a ten minute walk to the city center or to the Humboldt State University campus. The cottage interior is comfortable and well appointed, with open floor plan which includes a living, dining and kitchen area. The kitchen is fully equipped with a range, microwave and a refrigerator. The tiled bathroom features a tub/shower combination. The living room sofa makes into a bed which can sleep either one additional adult or two children. Also included at no additional cost is a large selection of DVD movies, wireless internet and many books. Beautiful maple floors, hand woven carpets, a leather sofa and chair, historic photography and original works of art add warm ambiance to the main living area. PARKSIDE COTTAGE is a one bedroom (not a studio)unit which allows privacy from the guest using the sofa bed in the living area. Enjoy a good nights sleep on the queen sized bed which features an ultra-plush pillow top mattress, down pillows and fine linens. Paintings by the owner, an accomplished artist, enhance the bedroom decor. Our accommodation is child friendly and for a small additional charge we can provide guests with the following items: Graco Pack And Play, a safety gate, a high chair and a stroller.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Such a peaceful cottage environment--small yet full of space. We love the beautiful trees nearby, the interesting book collection, a movie for every taste, lovely art on the walls--a charm to share with our family members who live here in Arcata and McKinleyville--a great way to be an Arcatan for awhile! Thanks.........Marsha

We have lived in Arcata for over 30 years and we have lived at this property since 1987. We thoroughly enjoy living in Arcata and we especially like our neighborhood. Mountain bike riding is only minutes away. The area is excellent for road riding. No matter what one’s preference for scenery is – forest, seascape, or pastureland, its always easy to take a great ride! We enjoy going to the farmers market on Saturdays, which is only a ten-minute walk from where we live. Local produce is organic and abundant! We enjoy films so consequently we have a large collection of DVD movies, which are available to our guests. We enjoy preparing good meals and do so often. We share our house with our cat Jewels. Jewels was a stray who decided to live with us about 10 years ago – so now we live with royalty.

We purchased a vacant lot in a newly developed subdivision in 1986. What was unique about this subdivision is that the land it was created from was originally used as a playground/ball field for the public school that it is adjacent to. Because of earthquake safety, the school had to be relocated and the property, including the structure that was used as a school, was sold to private developers. Originally, these investors wanted to develop a medium density multi-unit subdivision without a park. The surrounding neighbors protested vehemently and ultimately the subdivision was reduced down from 39 living units to just 17, which also included a 1.25 acre park. Only 3 of the 17 building lots were designated for a supplemental living unit, ours being one of the 3. The other unique feature about our subdivision is that because it is surrounded by historical homes, we were required to build a structure that had historical architecture. This wasn’t a concern for us because we wanted to build a Craftsman style home anyway, which we did. The end result of all of our efforts (community members and neighbors) is that we created a highly desirable area in which to live and it now serves as one of the “jewel” neighborhoods of Arcata. We moved into our cottage in 1987 and lived there until our house next door was completed. What we offer you is a charming place to stay in a quiet, secure neighborhood conveniently located in Arcata.

Great place in Arcata

  • 5 of 5
The Parkside Cottage is lovely, clean and very well maintained. It's in a quiet part of town, but within walking distance of two natural foods stores, lots of good restaurants (Cafe Brio and Crush are excellent) and fun shops at the Plaza. It was great to have the playground across the street for our 8-yr. old, as well as the indoor/ heated community pool also within a couple of blocks. Jim is a very kind and generous host, and can provide useful information about travelling in the area. We recommend the cottage and would stay there again.

Lovely stay!

We really enjoyed our stay in this sweet home close to the Redwoods. We found the bed really comfy, the Internet fast, and the town nice and a great place to jog right to the Redwoods from. We met Jim and he was a huge help with everything we needed. Would totally stay here again!

Perfect VRBO

  • 5 of 5
This rental property and the complete experience exemplifies the absolute best of vrbo. From the start to the end, I have nothing but positive comments. I stayed here with my wife and 6 year old girl for the graduation of my son at HSU. In the cottage, the attention to detail is stunning. For example: A selection of Hinkles and Japanese knives were available in the kitchen along with a framed note about how to care for and use them. Nice touch. High end cookware, interestingly selected porcelain and pottery bowls and mugs. Attractive artwork all around. An excellent selection of books to read for all types and ages. Appliances in the kitchen seem brand new, very clean, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, stove. Clearly the owners have responded to suggestions over the years for what to have there. Extra towels, puzzles for kids, the lighting is adequate and easy to use and find. Peaceful neighborhood right next to awesome kids park! I am tall and fit just fine in the shower and bathroom. Queen bed is VERY comfy, actually much better of a bed than I have at home and I have a really good one at home. This one is better. You will sleep well. Nice bedframe, classy and functional. Plenty of plugs for electronics, wifi easy to use. Weber grill ready to go. The landscaping around the area is beautiful and serene. As I type this on Sunday, it is completely peaceful and lovely. I'm going for a run in the neighborhood near the Plaza. When I return to Arcata, I will stay here again. Thank you to my hosts here. Well done!!

An awesome place to stay in Arcata

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is everything all the other great reviews say and more. It was a beautiful place with a lovely kitchen. We went for my boyfriends birthday and when we arrived there was a lovely birthday cheesecake awaiting us in the kitchen! It was quiet, but close to the Plaza, with it's wonderful restaurants, art, and shops. And there's a great natural foods market just a few blocks away. We walked everywhere. It has a cute little deck perfect for sipping wine, snacking on cheese, and enjoying the view, which included a bit of the bay through the trees. It was spotlessly clean, had a well-equipped kitchen, a great bed, and a huge closet! Plenty of books and DVD's to choose from if you just wanted to cozy up on the couch. And it's so affordable! We will definitely stay there again.
