Great house, cool location, quiet, easy freeway access, super clean and well stocked with useful stuff and fun stuff!
Sean H. | May 2024
Loved the shell cottage! Everything we needed for a weekend exploring Eureka and the area. Fully stocked kitchen and bathroom. Everything went great - even had time to enjoy one of the jigsaw puzzles a previous guest had left behind!
Lesley B. | May 2024
This small house was perfect for a “home base” near the shoreline and within 1 hour of so many great places! We enjoyed the amenities of Eureka and the closeness to redwood parks! Everything in the house worked well and was clean.

Some of our King Salmon vacation rentals include bikes or kayaks with your stay. Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center in Eureka also offers kayak, canoe, and SUP rentals, as well as guided paddling, canoeing, rafting, and sailing excursions. Their Rig and Rent Sailing Program even lets qualified skippers rent a sailboat after passing a competency assessment.

If you’d rather just sit back and enjoy the ride, opt for a Humboldt Bay Harbor Cruise aboard the <em>Maraket</em>. This well-reviewed operator offers narrated sightseeing and wildlife cruises, as well as early-evening cocktail cruises, seasonally from mid-May through early October.

For land-based adventures, head north to the Arcata Community Forest to explore the wide trails, narrow paths, bridges, and stairs winding among its towering trees and leafy ferns. And, be sure to visit Old Town Eureka for a selfie at the stunning Carson Mansion, the most photographed Victorian mansion in the world.

With all the activities and sightseeing you’ll enjoy on your Redwood Coast vacation, you’re bound to work up an appetite. So, before you retire to the comfort of your vacation rental for the night, drop in to Gill’s by the Bay at the end of Buhne Drive in King Salmon. This family-owned restaurant on the bay has a lovely garden and observation deck for enjoying the boats and wildlife. The menu includes mouthwatering breakfast plates, daily lunch specials, and seafood sandwiches. You can sit inside the diner-style restaurant or enjoy bayside breezes while you dine on the outdoor patio. Try the shrimp omelette, or order a grilled crab sandwich to go.
