I have had a love affair with Arcata since I moved here over 40 years ago to attend Humboldt State University. I graduated and could not leave this special place; our progressive kinda quirky little university town is like none other. Besides being host at Rose Court Cottage, I operate Arcata Stay Lodging Network Of Exceptional Accommodations and manage 7 other vacation rentals ranging from studios to 1 & 2 bedroom Stays, all walking distance to Arcata Plaza and Humboldt State University.
The abundance of natural beauty just minutes away in any direction is phenomenal: the tallest most majestic redwood trees in the world, miles of unspoiled rugged coastline, sand dunes, lagoons, six beautiful rivers, ever changing Humboldt Bay, and Wildlife Refuges, to name a few. The redwood coast offers diverse recreational opportunities which attract visitors from around the world. . It is the perfect base from which to make day trips to the natural wonders of our region, and return at the end of the day to a lovely space with all the comforts of home.
