Recent Arcata guest reviews

Baxter's Bayview Cottage was the perfect place for our long weekend. The cottage was clean and inviting with gorgeous wood floors. We loved having our morning coffee on the deck. The views of the bay were beautiful. We would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!

This house was spacious and great for our family. The large, open concept living space allowed us to all be connected and enjoy our time. And the backyard space was beautiful!

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.
