Arcata, Humboldt County, California
This is a gem. An exquisite old-rose garden cascades in front of your 11 foot, floor-to-ceiling bow window in the master bedroom. A wall of French doors opens onto a large deck that's perfect for catching the sun or sipping wine. Enjoy the outdoor shower and cedar hot tub. Quiet. Off the street, but right in the middle of charming downtown Arcata.

Check out Arcata's bustling small-town plaza with a local artists' gallery, Saturday Farmers' market, unbeatable French cafe and great restaurants featuring local, organic cuisine. And, by the way, we're a short dr...

This was better than advertised! Very private, very clean, very tastefully designed and decorated! The garden was well-tended with a wide variety of plants. I especially enjoyed sitting on the back patio and watching the butterflies that were attracted by the garden. Kitchen was well-equipped. Everything was labeled and the intro notebook very comprehensive. Only downfall was that laundry facilities...

Management response:

Thanks for the great review and we really hope to see you again in the future! (Sorry about the laundry-some plumbing issues have arisen.)

Tucked into the quaint little neighborhood just a moments stroll from the iconic Arcata Plaza, is where I found myself and my husband on the evening we celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary. Being a Humboldt County local, I had driven this same street countless times yet had no idea what lies behind the gate. This year we wanted to...

My 17 year old son and I stayed at the magic garden. The photos don't do justice to the home. We were in town to visit humbolt university. The home was so inviting and relaxing. We walked to the school and into town. No need for a car. We loved arcata! It was like going back in time when people...

Management response:

Thank you for loving it! We love this property! It has a very private feel for being in town, even when soaking in the Japanese tub! I hope your son has enrolled in HSU and you will be staying with us to visit him in the future!
