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).

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.

About Jim Gurman

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.

Why Jim Gurman chose Arcata

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.

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

Wonderful Cottage Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our long weekend stay at the cottage was a great get away. The cottage is cozy and welcoming with plenty of space to settle in and feel at home. Jim was the perfect host, very friendly and informative. There are thoughtful extra amenities included through out the cottage. I cooked dinner several nights and had everything I needed to prepare our meals. A perfect home base for a weekend of hiking and music. We will definitely be back again.

A Delightful, Up-Scale Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our 3 day stay at Parkside Cottage the end of September was a pure delight. It was everything we expected from the listing/photos and MORE. This is a beautiful place to stay when visiting the North Coast. In a lovely, quiet residential area, adjacent to a small park yet close to amenities of town, the cottage is very clean and beautifully appointed,
the bed is very comfortable, many upgraded items, such as kitchen knives and pots/pans. and art work. A deck with tiny views of the park, mountains to the east and a glimpse of the ocean. Though small the cottage seems spacious. Everything you need has been thought of. Jim, the owner, was helpful and available if needed. Parkside Cottage is a gem. We are looking forward to our next stay here. Our Thanks to the Owners for creating it and making it available.

Arcata Cottage Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time to stay at Parkside Cottage and we had a great time. The cottage is in a good location so that you can walk to the farmers' market, restaurants and shops. We brought our bikes and stored them downstairs under the eaves where they stayed dry when it rained the last night. There are a lot of trails for hiking and riding.

Perfect Weekend at Parkside Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
I couldn't be happier with this lovely cottage! Since our daughter just started at HSU we've been wanting to stay here after seeing all the 5 star reviews and to say that our expectations were met is an under statement. The location is perfect, we walked all over and explored the best of Arcata. The cottage is even better than the photos, it was immaculately clean (and I'm kind of a germaphobe), the kitchen is open to the living room with everything I needed to make a home cooked meal, and we both had a great night's sleep in the comfy bed. The owner Jim was very friendly and came by to see if we needed anything. Even though it's over a garage, the cottage is very secluded on a quiet street. Next time we want to bring a kite to fly in the nearby park! I would highly recommend this rental to HSU parents and small families, you will not be disappointed!

Excellent accomodations and excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Parkside Cottage. Accomodations were excellent with plenty of room for our family. We really loved the community and the hosts were perfect - just enough attention to get us settled and then we had the place to ourselves. We'd definately stay again.

Very clean, cute place in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed two nights at the Parkside Cottage. We were greeting by the owner upon arrival. He was kind, and took the time to get us acquainted with the accommodations. Parkside Cottage exceeded my expectations. The housekeeper for the Parkside Cottage does a nice job. It was very clean. The location is within walking distance to downtown. We had a nice stay. Thank you very much!
