The studio is in a great location. I stayed here to visit the Redwood national and state parks. The Arcata community forest is a gem as well.
Although the studio is small, it has all the amenities one would require for a short stay. The shower could use some thorough cleaning though. There was visible mold all over and it bothered me every time I saw it.
Thank you for staying with us, Yamini! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. The mildewed silicone has been removed from the shower, and the shower has been resealed to ensure that it is in top condition for our guests, we are sorry that this was not addressed before your arrival. We hope to have another opportunity to host you!

Right across the street from Redwood forest with hiking trails, short drive to the ocean, dog friendly and beautifully decorated.

This is such a perfect location. You can visit the redwoods and so many beaches. The Redwood Roost is small but is still perfect for two people. I was able to work remote from this location the wifi was very strong and they have a great outdoor seating area to work from.

We really enjoyed our stay at this cute little cabin. It was set up perfectly for us two adults and the dog. Can't wait to come back for a visit!! ~ Sarah Cox

I loved the area, I'm a local at heart. I grew up in Arcata, but live in Southern California now and it was so nice to come back for a quiet weekend. It's off the beaten path, traffic on Fickle Hill is there, but easy to tune out. Will definitely stay again when it's just me. Homeowners are very nice.
This was my first time staying in an Air B n B and it was great.

Tucked away in the woods is this small, peaceful studio. Well stocked with everything needed for our 3 night stay, cooking at home. Super close to Redwood Park and lots of trails. Busy street out front but we didn't notice. Cute place, will return!

I loved the location right at the edge of the forest. What a beautiful place to walk. The small room was very comfortable and cozy.
Susan D.Feb 2021
This was perfect for my needs in Arcata. Rental was clean and well supplied. Also love the location with easy access to Arcata Community Forest and the downtown area.
Owner is lovely.

This small cottage had everything we needed for our visit.
Susan D.Aug 2020
Just what we needed for a few nights. Hosts are very friendly and we loved to location.
Omar H.Aug 2020
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.

Cute clean,& comfortable
Would stay again in a heartbeat. Felt like home in a small way. Had ALL the accoutrements neccessary. 💜
Cathy M.Jul 2020
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.
Timothy P.Jul 2020
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.
