California Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

Upscale Serene Redwood Retreat in Arcata - Perfect Couple's Retreat. Open studio layout on park setting surrounded by Redwoods. You really do feel like you are on a retreat when you are here. Great place for an artist or writer looking for a sanctuary in the Redwoods but still in Arcata. Tastefully furnished and decorated with hardwood floors with radiant floor heating. Wonderful kitchen and nice dining area. The shower is wonderful with it's skylights and tiling all of the way up the walls. Super comfy bed as well.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had the opportunity to rent Jane's home with some friends from college. I feel that the title Magic Garden Home is an understatement...Jane's home is a real Oasis. The town of Arcata is cute, has loads of charm, and awesome redwood forest hikes, but my friends and I found ourselves wanting to spend most of our time at the house. From the sounds of trickling water of the small fountains, to the Buddha statues, the rose garden, natural hot tub, and deck that blocked any wind--it all made us feel so zen. One of my friends said repeatedly "I'm never leaving this house." I felt that same way. :) While we didn't meet in person (her nice neighbor greeted and oriented us to the home), Jane and I talked on the phone, emailed and text messaged--she was very accommodating and available for any questions/recommendations during our stay. Thanks Jane--we will all remember your place for a long long time, and hope to stay again sometime. :)

This lovely guest home was the perfect place for a vacation on the coast. Close to downtown stores, restaurants and breweries and a short drive from wonderful outdoor activities. The property is beautiful and well maintained and very comfortable. I would highly recommend it!

Reviewer Comments:

I wish we found this place 4 yrs ago. If you have a student at HSU and you want somewhere to stay while visiting, look no further. It is great for 2 (couple) that want a place to relax while visiting. You are not always with your student when visiting and this place is a home away from home.This is better then any hotel in town. Clean,Quite,relaxing,a few welcome snacks, close to town, close to school, store nearby. I want to visit Arcata again just to come back here. Like I said I wish we found this place 4 yrs ago.

This is a lovely little home tucked in the edge of the forest. The presentation was welcoming and the home had all of the amenities we needed for a very comfortable stay. Perfect for a couple on a romantic get away. Mattress is very firm, couch is soft and cozy. We would definitely return to this little gem.

Map

You are close to Humboldt State University. The Redwoods Park is close by with plenty of hiking and biking trails. You are about 1 mile from downtown Arcata restaurants and shops. The home is nestled in the Redwoods and quite private and quiet. Very relaxing
