Just what we needed for a few nights. Hosts are very friendly and we loved to location.

The location was great and it was the perfect place to relax after our days of hiking. Had the sweetest dog on the property. The bed was very comfortable however it was small for the two of us and would better be described as a double/full rather than a queen. There was also no microwave even though a microwave was listed as one of the amenities. Aside from these things, the roost was the perfect spot for us, will be back! Thanks for the great stay - private, quiet, & serene.

We found this to be exactly as described in the summary so there were no surprises except there was no microwave. Hiking in the Redwood forest was just beautiful -right across the street and a block down there were many forest paths. Also so close to the main plaza in town. The cottage is well maintained and yard is lovely too. This was perfect for us two for a quiet get-away at a good price

Perfect for pandemic times. Separated building so no need to get close to anyone. Nice little building that had all I needed. Very quiet and slept like a log.

Nice cozy place. Convenient access to beach and forests.
Very cosy little house, just on the opposite side of the road of the great community Redwood forest. Only 15 minutes walk to the center of Arcata and 10 minutes drive to the ocean. The house had all we needed and it was very clean. Good comfortable bed. The owners who lived next door were very kind og helpful. We can recommend this rental.
Cozy little roost. Perfect for a quiet get away for two. Quiet and peaceful and close to town. Nice neighborhood as well.
Nice, clean, tidy spot for a quick visit to Arcata! Beautiful setting up the hills of Arcata, for a nice wooded stay! Friendly hosts that live on site in the main house! Redwood coast vacation rentals continues to impress with their hospitality and accommodation. The kitchenette is a bit small for meal prep but makes for a nice coffee, snack station.
We enjoyed this cute bungalow,however my husband wouldn't stay again. The location was great...quiet neighborhood but close to town. It's a bit hard to find at first,especially in the dark. It would have been nice to have more comfortable seating...the compliant of the hubby but I do agree. The bed was comfy and it had everything we needed, except for a microwave. The toaster oven wasn't the best warming device, for us. Too cold to use the patio but looked quite inviting. It was clean & neat so that was the most important.
I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE LOCATION OF THIS ADORABLE COTTAGE. IT WAS CLEAN AND COZY, JUST WHAT WE HAD EXPECTED FOR OUR STAY IN ARCATA. I WOULD COME BACK!
Located on a quiet street on a hill, this unit is small yet cozy and comfortable. Since the weather was nice we could eat on the front patio but it would be cramped for two people. However, it is definitely worth the price and would recommend.
The cottage is small, but well stocked with everything you might need to prepare a meal. The bed is very comfortable. The outside patio area is perfect. The host was most excellent. Would definitely stay here again
Ihad a thoroughly relaxing time as did Rita. We especially enjoyed the cool temps and chats with our neighbors
My husband and I had a great time in Arcata, Ca. Our little house was very comfortable and close to everywhere. Thank you Redwood Coast. We will be returning for your service.
