We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay. Our home away from home had everything we needed, including coffee, all kitchen wares and a comfortable bed. The garden was very beautiful and tranquil. We are already looking forward to our nex stay.

Quaint little space with a wonderful view of the town and bay. Every need was met, from dishes to blankets and first aid. Will definitely be back!

Ted R. Feb 2020
Great place. I was a little concerned about the rental being through a company but it went flawlessly. Easy access to downtown and the college. Restaurants within walking distance. Oh, don’t miss out on a hike through the redwoods. The park entrance is 25 yards from the cottage.

The house was clean and comfortable. The windows overlook the bay and was a great place to have breakfast. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Arcata.
