My second time staying here and plan too return often.
John L. Nov 2022
The apartment is in a beautiful location overlooking the city and the bay. It was very clean and fully equipped and functional. In a very quiet neighborhood near the community redwood forest with easy access to town, we couldn’t have asked for more.
Don G. Oct 2022
The check in and check out process was seamless. The first night we enjoyed watching and photographing a doe and her fawn comfortably snacking on grass and shrubs through the large living room window and standing in the driveway. Great facility and especially loved the convenient stacked washer /dryer. Easy to find and close for a stroll in Redwood Park. Centrally located for traveling to Trinidad, Arcata and Eureka. Loved our stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Baxter's Bayview Cottage. It was quiet and comfortable. The view and outside deck were a wonderful addition to the good accommodations.

The location…. the setting….unparalleled view……all made my stay extremely comfortable

Wonderful cottage stay that is planted right in the middle of all the places you'll want to visit. Well stocked with everything you need (even several ice packs for packing lunches, which we thought was great!) Very clean. Great view and outdoor space.
This place has a bed and futon, which is great for a trip for a pair that doesn't necessarily want to sleep in the same bed. Like our trip, it was my daughter and I. There are extra sheets and blankets in the closet if you need them. We had brought our own because I wasn't sure (now know for next time). Any store you might need is within a five minute drive. I've never had a rental provide laundry, what a huge plus!! (Soap pods were provided- thank you!!)
Great beaches off Samoa Drive, Saturday Arcata farmers market is fantastic, Redwood Skyway in Eureka is amazing (part of zoo), Elk Meadow a must when you head to National Park. So many things to see, a drawer in the cottage even has more suggestions. You will not run out of ideas. Thank you Baxter's, we will be back!

My husband and I loved staying at this beautifully appointed cottage. It’s a complete package! The decor was lovely, it was so comfortable and peaceful. The view of the bay was beautiful. I loved all the amazing flowering bushes and flowers. We hope to return! We loved it!

I love it when an owner anticipates the needs and desires of their guests.
Baxters Bayview delivers on all that was advertised and more. We were especially thrilled by the laundry facilities and the bay view was Sublime

Casey T. May 2022
This place was exactly as advertised. It was a nice place and in a convenient location.
Laura M. Mar 2022
Lovely spot with a fabulous view! Unit was very clean and well stocked. The only suggestion I have is to provide a mattress topper for the futon in the living room. Especially if you are traveling with kids or a potential college student.
Manager response:
Thank you, Laura, for your suggestions and review! We are pleased you enjoyed your time and the beautiful view. Your feedback will be shared with our manager for further consideration and updates. We hope to host another wonderful stay!

Location is great and the unit is well stocked. I wish I could stay there whenever I visit my HSU student
Michael F. Feb 2022
Walking distance to downtown, easy check in/out, great views, many convenient items available (spices, ice, water purifier, smart tv, towels, soaps, glasses/utensils). Would definitely stay here again.
Margaret R. Dec 2021
Will definitely be back. Such a quant little place at the top of the hill adjacent to the redwood forest and everything you could possibly need. Even had 3 deer on the front lawn , patio.
Joanne B. Oct 2021
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.
Margy R. Aug 2021
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!
Andrea F. Oct 2020
My husband and I loved this place. Very neat and clean...the perfect size for us! A gorgeous view of the bay and near HSU and walk-able to the Plaza. Quiet and cozy, we will be back.
Susan R. Mar 2020
Nice neighborhood near campus, plenty of street parking.
Michelle L. Feb 2020
location is great, great view with proximity to redwood park and downtown and campus. Clean, perfect size for 2, had everything we needed
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.
Steve B. Jan 2020
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.
