Eureka, Humboldt County, California
Come stay in our pet friendly cottage by the beach! Private, securely fenced front and back yard for your kids and dog, and gated dock access in backyard for our canoes, kayaks, and row boats. (Access is definitely tide sensitive). A public, dog-friendly beach with gentle waves is a wonderful place for walks, picnics, and sand castles.

The Shell Cottage has one private bedroom with a brand new queen bed (purchased after a suggestion from a guest that current bed was too soft) and a brand new queen sized hide-a-bed sofa in the living room. The dining table will seat five with separate eating a...

There were no surprises other than good ones and we truly enjoyed our stay…so much so that we already booked another week for this summer! My family lives in the area and we try to make several trips a...

To me this is a REALLY unique property and experience. Living in So Cal for most of my life, after being born in SF, this is to ME what a lot of the coast of Northern California USED to be like. There are MANY more pro's than con's!! PRO's: Very "coastal" experience and charm. From what we have researched, property...

All was fine for family of 3. We loved walks along the adjacent shore. Didn't utilize small dock on the little channel out back, but seemed to be an adequate launch for rowboat or kayak. Location was great for our needs; moderate drives to several state and national redwood forests and parks; a short hop to downtown Eureka. Only negative... more

Management response:

Shell Cottage is great. We encourage vacationers to bring kayaks and canoes and utilize the back dock. Next visit, please plan to bring some! We do have rental agencies in the area for this type of equipment. The neighbors are just fine and can be helpful with directions to anywhere. more
