Enjoy a peaceful, relaxing stay in a light-filled studio apartment in the country just ten minutes drive from the Arcata Plaza and Humboldt State University. Full kitchen and bath, sunny eating alcove, hardwood floors and views of redwoods.
This comfortable and tasteful studio apartment has its own kitchen and full bathroom. It features views of redwoods and distant hills, a sunny eating alcove with large southeast-facing windows, hardwood floors, a wood stove, and a tiled bathroom. Built onto our custom home, the studio apartment is reached through a shared entry room.
The studio includes a Sealy Posturepedic queen-sized bed with 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and a goose down comforter (a hypoallergenic alternative is also available on request). The space features original paintings, Japanese prints and an Oriental carpet. The skylighted kitchen includes a refrigerator, gas range, toaster, coffee grinder, coffee maker and electric kettle. The kitchen is stocked with simple breakfast items, mostly organic. Typically these include eggs, whole grain bread, butter, jam, instant oatmeal, granola, milk, rice milk, coffee and tea. The bathroom has tile floors and a tiled shower/bath; we supply shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. Radiant floor heating provides comfortable warmth; we also supply firewood if you feel like making a fire in the wood stove. The space is ideal for one or two, but we do have a portable foam mattress for a third person.
Bird song and the sound of the breeze through the trees are the main sounds you will hear in this quiet, secluded corner of Humboldt. You may see deer, raccoons or the occasional fox wander by your window. Yet you are only four miles from Highway 101 and ten minutes drive from the center of Arcata.
A gate at the base of our road provides extra security; the code is provided once guests book.
