This was a great place! It is close to the plaza and right next to food and shops. It's only about 3 blocks to the plaza, so if you are looking for a place that is short walking distance, then I highly recommend it.

This is a great location. Very close to downtown shopping and restaurants. Lovely garden. The space was very clean and I appreciated the granola and cookies as added treats. Very comfortable and the gas fireplace stove added a cozy touch.

Very clean and well-restored classic older home with unbeatable walking access to downtown Arcata. Having stayed at many rentals in the area, this one has been our favorite so far.
