Forest View Stay Elegant Studio Near HSU Gateway

Arcata house

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 5

“Arcata Winner” My husband and I loved this studio apartment! It is charming and so comfortable. Having a full kitchen available if we wanted to use it was great. However, we found the town to have some great little restaurants. The bed is wonderfully comfortable, the studio is spacious enough, and for a couple this rental is ideal. If i had a child attending Humboldt State this would be my go-to place for every visit! There's even a day bed for another person to sleep.

“The Hippie Hut” We loved this place! Nicely tucked in on main street and amazingly quiet for the location. Short walk to town square, which is really fun and full for great food and coffee and shops. The bed is very comfortable. The retro living room and kitchen work well and are fun!

Trinidad cottage

“Awesome Stay at the Golden Eagle Vacation Cottages in Trinidad,” Thank you both for providing such a lovely place to stay on vacation. The wine was a wonderful surprise. We loved the peace & quiet and the beautiful surroundings. The high end details of the cottage are so rare in rentals, ie hard wood floors, flexsteel furniture, memory foam mattress, high end cabinetry, appliances and fixtures... Wishing you both the best of success with this family business venture. We will be back next year to see more of the area and will definitely be staying here. We can't wait to see the finished pond area. The location is an ideal starting point for all the things to do in the area. We couldn't ask for a better place to stay while vacationing or for better hosts, we loved Peaches!! Thanks again, Bob & Minette

The Golden Eagle Cottages: 2

Trinidad cottage

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 2

“Peaceful, beautiful, high end cottage” We'd never been to the coast before, and had no idea of what Patrick's Point was like. Just knew we wanted to rent a couple of mountain bikes and go through the Redwood forest... A lady from the bike rental told us about Golden Eagle, saying it was brand new. We loved it. High end all the way around. Beautifully done. Perfectly quiet, as Patrick's Point is wooded and serene. This is off the little side road that has lots of cottages, but you feel like you're quite isolated and at peace. Marke has created a gentle, lovely waterfall that splashes and gurgles. Sip the wine from expensive crystal provided in your cottage--no funky thick glasses here! Mark had set out a bottle of Smoking Loon Pinot, then he heard I drank white, so he made a special trip out to get a Parducci Chard. All generously gifted to us, along with a bouquet of roses from his garden. After our bike ride on the second day, Geoff had to rescue this girl in a car accident on the Redwood Hwy. He got cut up and muddy in this swamp, trying to help her get out after her car flipped in front of ours. We got back, and Marke was there working on the pond. He offered to wash out the muddy clothes and shoes in the main house for us. Without that help, I would have spent half the day at the laundrymat about half an hour away. Marke is such a kind and generous inn keeper. Our choice in staying here was just right. Such a memorable experience, and so relaxing (except for the hwy accident adrenaline).

“Totally satisfied with this rental property and its owners.” This property is brand-new and well thought out. Everything in the cabin is up todate, and high quality. Mark and Joan are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. The location is perfect for traveling around Humboldt County. The setting is serene and quiet. Mark has done a wonderful job landscaping this property. I would recommend this rental to everyone I know, and give it five stars.

About Arcata

Arcata, California

It may be one of the most eco-friendly and progressive towns around, but there’s more to Arcata than its hippie culture and vegetarian restaurants.

Book your vacation rental with FlipKey and come to discover what this hidden California gem has to offer for yourself.

About Arcata

Arcata was founded in 1850, to provide a base for those working in the nearby lumber camps. Today it’s better known for its progressive politics and green credentials, with bike lanes on almost every street and tandem bicycles collecting residents’ recycling. Home to Humboldt State University, the town has a laidback vibe and unique culture, plus plenty of green spaces and outdoor activities to keep even the most active types happy.

If you’re into clean eating and vegetarian cuisine, Arcata’s cafes and restaurants will prove a delight, with no shortage of smoothie and juice bars to choose from. There are other options too, from Mexican food trucks to cozy coffee shops and restaurants serving the freshest oysters and seafood. Don’t miss the annual Oyster Festival which takes place every June at the Central Plaza, a great spot for people watching.

What to do

Get outdoors and enjoy the countryside—there’s plenty of it nearby. Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary has five miles of trails and is a popular spot for birdwatching. Or drive 45 minutes north to Redwood National and State Parks where you can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and canoeing—or just relax in the sunshine with a family picnic.

It’s less than a 10-minute drive to some great family-friendly beaches where you can work on your tan or give surfing or skim boarding a go. Or rent a bike in the town center and explore on two wheels—there are bike lanes crisscrossing the town, making it easy to get from A to B.

From spring to fall, the Central Plaza hosts an organic farmers’ market on Saturday mornings, an opportunity to shop for local produce—it’s also a good place to relax in the sunshine.

Top travel tips

The nearest airport for domestic flights is Arcata/Eureka Airport in McKinleyville, just 6 miles to the north of town. For international flights, you’ll need to drive some 292 miles to San Francisco International.

Center Arts hosts regular events and has attracted names like Lou Reed in the past. Those in the know pick up tickets in the HSY Bookstore on the third floor of the University Center.

Dry season here runs from June to September, although there can be foggy days during the summer months, and it can get cool at times, so layer up if you’re going hiking!

For a relaxing vacation in a small, friendly town with plenty of activities for all ages, Arcata is the perfect destination.

FlipKey has dozens of rentals to choose from, whether you prefer a cozy log cabin or modern downtown digs. Browse our range of accommodation today.

Nice place and perfect location in arcata

We had a great stay. Enjoyed the easy walks (even for our 2 year old) to community forest, HSU, and the Plaza (especially Crabs ballpark). Also enjoyed the house and deck. Property manager was nice and helpful. We would gladly return. … see more
Sweet Home Stay Dog-Friendly 2 BD/2 BA Fenced Yard Bungalow Near Plaza & HSU
Lovely hideaway

The cottage was lovely and beautifully appointed. Our kids and dog enjoyed the fenced yard, and the bed was super comfy. The proximity to Wildberries Market and downtown was great as well. The cottage felt very private, though there was some residual noise from the street at times. We would definitely stay here again!see more
Arcata Rose Court Cottage in Serene Garden Setting Midtown Cozy Studio
cottage elegance on the coast of Humbolt county

A flower bordered walkway ushered us into the Rose Cottage. Tastefully appointed , the guest house was cozy and comfortable. Christy created a breakfast that more than complimented our vegetarian desires. The furniture was comfortable for my wife and I as was the queen size bed. The cottage has a good selection of reading material and local history. We did not avail ourselves of the tv and dvd player choosing instead to relax quietly . I would recommend this B+B to any couple .see more
