Recent Arcata vacation rental reviews

The house was immaculately clean. Beds are comfortable and shower has good pressure. Kitchen supplies well stocked. Location great for visiting both Cal Poly Humboldt and the Redwood Parks. Highly recommend!

We loved this home for our family vacation as we celebrated our granddaughter’s graduation from Humboldt. The home was very clean, well designed for family activities, and the beds were perfect…not too firm and not too soft. There were plenty of supplies for cooking and working on our puzzle together. We always try to do a family puzzle on our vacation!! Having a laundry room was also nice. The home was in a perfect location as we were near the college and we also enjoyed a trip to Trinidad and the Avenue of the Giants. I would definitely look to rent here again. 🥰

The garden encompasses this home which feels like a spa, so comfortable that you are content to sit in the garden instead of partaking of the many other magical spots in Humboldt County. Has everything you need to make meals, a lovely hot tub many comfortable nooks for reading or conversation. Only one downside is that this garden would be filled with birds if the many neighborhood cats were not relentlessly hunting them. This is a gorgeous spot we hope to return.

Things to do near your Arcata vacation rental

While you’re staying in one of our Arcata vacation rentals, be sure to spend a misty morning or sunny afternoon in the Arcata Community Forest on the eastern side of town. You’ll find wide trails, narrow paths, bridges, and stairs among the towering trees and leafy ferns. Explore the trails on foot or by bike, and if you’ve chosen one of our dog-friendly vacation rentals, you can even bring along your pup.

If you’re inspired by the birdsong on your forest walk, head to the Arcata Marsh and Bird Sanctuary on the shores of Arcata Bay. Located on the Pacific Flyway migratory route, Arcata Marsh has welcomed more than 300 species of birds. The 307-acre Wildlife Sanctuary includes five miles of biking and walking trails, and the Marsh Interpretive Center offers free guided walks on Saturday mornings and afternoons.

Before you retire for the day back at your well-appointed Arcata vacation rental, drop by Finnish Country Sauna and Tubs for a one-of-a-kind experience. Enjoy a rejuvenating soak in one of their private, open-air, clothing-optional redwood hot tubs. Or, opt for one of the private, traditional sauna cabins with grass roofs and a natural light source. And, pop in to Cafe Mokka, the oldest coffeehouse in Humboldt County, for old-world espresso drinks, a browse through international newspapers and magazines, and occasional live folk music.
