Beautiful architectural details in house and beautiful Redwood Trees setting privacy great time.
Catherine Q. Oct 2021
Beautifully appointed and spacious studio. Even better than described. The setting in the redwoods is stunning. Quiet and nestled but the supermarket is only a mile away. Would stay here again in a heartbeat if up in this area again.

The retreat was absolutely beautiful inside and out! The many windows and skylights enabled us to lay in bed and view the stars or look at the full moon in all it’s glory at night to feeling like we were snuggled in the beautiful Redwood Forrest. We live in Florida but will definitely book our visits upon availability of the retreat....... loved it❤️

A fine location for exploring the natural beauty of the north California coast.
John P. Jul 2021
The stillness of the forest and their giant trees. Demanding that I remain present. Gratitude for the cozy home at the end of the day.
Taigen F. Apr 2021
This was a lovely spot! Felt like you were off the map. Very lovely and well cared for. Would absolutely stay here again!
Yunru H. Apr 2021
We really enjoyed the stay! It is the same as the picture shows - surrounded by the redwoods!
Some notes to future improvement: 1) some windows do not have screens; 2) the pan has some burned spots which is very hard to clean. 3) the lights over the sink in the bathroom is very dim.
Deborah R. Feb 2021
The pictures don’t do this beautiful space, justice. It was a beautiful getaway for the weekend and looking into possibly booking for when we elope in the area, later in the year!

We loved staying in this cute little place! The views are incredible and we felt very secluded.
Melia C. Dec 2020
I would have given this home 5 starts but it lacked a few things that were unexpected. The home was very clean and the setting looks and feels more remote than it is, and I was glad of that. The heated wood floors was a nice touch. However, there was no soap for the shower, no sugar for coffee, and not a spare blanket to be found. My hip didn't agree with the bed (not unusual) and when I went to try sleeping on the couch there was no spare blanket. Anyway, we enjoyed our stay, those few things would have made it just a bit more comfortable. I would stay again, but bring my own soap, sugar and a spare blanket:)
Manager response:

Beautiful home with all the amenities needed for our stay. The outdoor area + BBQ is fantastic for quiet backyard dinners. We absolutely loved this home and would love to return!
derek b. Sep 2020
Serene retreat is a spot on description of this property! So beautiful and quiet and in an ideal location. There is no doubt in my mind that we will be back to soak up more serenity and peace, wish we could have stayed longer.
Marc S. Aug 2020
A perfect location, isolated yet close to town. The rental and property is absolutely pristine, we will look to get this property on ever visit to the area!
Holly J. Jul 2020
This house is cute, private and everything i could have asked for. i am sorry it was only 4 days.
JULIE S. Jun 2020
This is our second time to stay. We love how private and quiet it is. The only thing we would wish for is either earlier check in or later checkout time. Would be nice to checkout a little later than 10am the last day of vacation.
Jeanette K. Jun 2020
Super quiet place, clean, close to town but with the redwoods right in your backyard. Loved it!
Mike F. Jan 2020
One of the best vacation rentals out there. It was amazing being among the redwoods and was so peaceful. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are exploring Redwood National Park.
Raeleen R. Jan 2020
Super cute and private. Very clean! Easy to get in and out. The roads are a bit steep. But loved the place. Would visit again.
Cecile H. Jan 2020
My husband, Rob, and I enjoy coming back to this Airbnb whenever it’s available on visits to see my mother. We love the style of the studio, the amenities, and the gorgeous surroundings by being in the redwoods. Thank you to all who help make our stay there each time so enjoyable!

This is an absolutely charming studio that sits off the beaten path among towering, majestic redwoods. It has everything you need and is just a quick drive from downtown Arcata. This is perfect for the solo getaway or a couple looking for some privacy in a beautiful setting.
. Oct 2019
Beautiful place in a lovely setting in the middle of alot of redwoods. Minutes from the freeway and restaurants.

I needed a nice place to relax for 2 nights while I explored the area on my motorcycle. A had a good feeling about this 'Serene Redwood Retreat' from the photos, and it proved to be true.

This place was clean, quiet, recently built/updated, has great in the redwoods views out the windows, fully equipped kitchen, quiet floor heating, and is close to town.

My biggest issue was wanting to stay more days..!

I do plan to return to this same rental with my wife as I know she will like it too, plus again when time permits for another motorcycle trip for me. I'm already looking forward to it.

If you are on a motorcycle, there is an overhang in front of the garage door where you can park your bike - keeps the bike from getting wet if it rains or if there is a heavy fog.

This was the most amazing place to stay, it was absolutely gorgeous, the owners are very nice people too. I want to move here now it was so beautiful! Love love love the redwoods and all the ferns!
. Aug 2019
All I can say is AMAZING!!! After a 5-1/2 hour flight delay, we arrived at 1:00 a.m. to the warm, inviting glow of exterior and interior lights. We were immediately dazzled by the darling, comfy space awaiting our arrival. It wasn't until the following morning that we could be wowed by the gorgeous views out the generous windows. Natural light filled the space with warmth. However, as the sun went down and the moon rose, the interior lighting created an equally warm and cozy space. The unit was clean and well equipped. We loved our leisurely morning coffee and breakfast and looked forward to returning after a day of hiking through the magnificent redwoods a short and scenic drive away. My only complaint was that the broiler pan had been left a greasy mess from the previous meal. I would highly recommend this lovely studio. It made our trip to the redwood a truly comfortable and memorable experience.
. Aug 2019
A wonderous little retreat in the quiet woods with a wonderful view.
. Jul 2019
Third visit always good
. Jul 2019
The studio is beautiful and very comfortable for a couples getaway. It is peacefully surrounded by redwood trees and ferns, yet only a few minutes away fro town and ocean.
We very much enjoyed our st and would come back anytime.

My wife and I have been fortunate to travel internationally and domestically and we found the Serene Redwoods Retreat to be a beautiful, cozy, quiet, world-class accommodation nestled among gorgeous trees and ferns. It's conveniently located a short drive from Arcata. Unless your trip includes serious cooking plans, only the most jaded traveler would find fault with this place. The salmon we caught with Northwest Charters made for an excellent dinner accompanied by the perfect California wine. Fresh-made pasta purchased in Arcata made another memorable dinner. Prairie Creek Redwoods Park and Fern Canyon are about an hour north and well worth the drive. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime! We can't wait to return and explore some more of what the redwood coast has to offer. Do yourself a favor and get there as soon as you can.

Classy little cottage in the redwoods, already planning another trip to stay again, just for a longer time
. Jun 2019
We loved this place! Even though it's a studio we had plenty of room. The setting was beautiful but it's really convenient to town.
. Mar 2019
Perfect!! The photos on the website accurately depict this place. Even though it is in town it was super quiet. Only heard a dog bark a couple of times during the day, otherwise quiet. Radiant floor heating was amazing and provided plenty of heat - even for a cold girl. The backyard is super private. Views spectacular. Had everything we needed to cook and do life for a week. The driveway is not recommended to back down so we always turned the car to drive down. It worked just fine to do it that way. Would absolutely stay here again.
. Feb 2019
The unit is beautiful and the location feels secluded among the redwoods yet only minutes to the square in Arcata. The property was very client, the finishing are what you would find a good house, and the coffee/cookies, etc., were a very nice touch. I have stayed in Arcata many times at the motels on Guintoli Lane, but never again. I will always stay here.
. Nov 2018
Perfect, private, and also convenient location. Had all the necessities and more!
. Sep 2018
This was a beautiful home, quiet, secluded, yet close to town, clean and inviting. Perfect for a solo traveler or a couple.

Great place. Highly recommend
. Jun 2018
We felt right at home in this beautiful home. Loved being nestled in the forest and having so many windows to enjoy the surroundings. The space was perfect for two people. We enjoyed every minute we spent there and plan to rent again if ever in the area.
. May 2018
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and comfortable home! We're looking forward to another visit soon!
. Apr 2018
We arrived at the retreat later in the evening. Everything was clean and ready for us. The views out of the windows were amazing. It really feels like a cabin in the woods.
. Apr 2018
Great place!
. Mar 2018
great studio unit. like the radiant floor heating.
. Jan 2018
It was relatively new cottage. Nicely appointed, comfy bed etc. a
little light in the kitchen but sufficient to cook and enjoy fully. All in all very nice. Loved the beach below the Humbolt Marine Center in Trinidad. Really a treat for someone with an interest in geology.
. Dec 2017
The property was very clean and up to date in a gorgeous, redwood setting. There was hiking nearby and even larger parks roughly 45 minutes to the north and south of the city.
