Cozy Cabin in the Redwoods

Essex Springs Redwood & River Retreat

Enjoy a secluded retreat in this contemporary-style cabin in the Redwoods. Bathed in sunlight, the cabin is a short stroll to the Mad River and only minutes from HSU and downtown Arcata's local shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and Community Forest.

This cozy redwood retreat has a welcoming covered front porch, a fully equipped kitchen, and bamboo and tiled floors throughout. The open floor plan accommodates a comfortable queen-sized bed downstairs and a cozy sleeping loft with a full-sized bed upstairs... each within the view & comfort of the warm stone hearth. The west-facing sunny back deck is ideal for outdoor dining while enjoying this private Redwood Oasis.

Also, if you have a little time to explore, our location is just a short drive to beautiful local beaches near Eureka and Trinidad, & natural paradises of Patricks Point State Park, Big Lagoon and Redwood National Park.

Lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at this adorable cabin. The property was beautiful and quiet with easy access to everything in the area. The cabin itself was very clean, and we appreciated the owners use of natural cleaning products. We also loved the wood-burning stove, which kept us warm on the chilly, rainy evenings.

Wonderful little cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The cabin was clean, private and very quit. I was able to cook a wonderful dinner in the little well stocked kitchen.

The cabin fit our family of 3 great. The owner Jeffery was very helpful and easy to deal with. He brought us extra towels and told us fun places to go. We will be back soon.Maybe even to try out the main house with friend .It looks really nice too.

Always love staying here

  • 4 of 5

This is our fourth year staying at Jeffrey's place. We love being on his private property, a few miles out of Arcata but with easy access to town & Hwy 101. We love being in the remote forest property. Cabin is comfortable, quiet, bright, open floorplan. Full kitchen (no microwave...have to rethink cooking a bit), which we like. It saves money & we can eat healthy meals not resturant food every day. We always enjoy our visits here!

Cute & clean cabin by meadow

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 4-nite stay. The cabin was so tastefully done and in excellent condition, in a lovely and quiet natural setting. It was fun to access via the tunnel and dirt road outside of town. Smaller than other cabins we have rented, but totally satisfactory for us 3 sight-seeing day-trippers. The kitchen was fine for our easy breakfasts and dinners, and the large bathroom worked well. The sturdy ladder to the loft was a topic of amusement. One of us found the downstairs bed a bit hard, so bring an extra blanket to sleep on if you prefer soft. It was nice to have the owner nearby and available by phone just in case anything came up.
