Description

The Space

The "perfect little place to stay in Arcata" is now an award-winning place to stay as well...

Recently the Historic Design and Review Commission of our fair city, gave us a design award for our storybook style home, noting the "...outstanding level of craftsmanship and artful detailing..."
As longtime design/builders of handcrafted homes,we are grateful and happy about the recognition. And we're glad to be able to share our place with guests who are looking for something a little out of the ordinary.
What guests will find, attached to the larger home:
A new, friendly, private apartment, with its own brick-walled, terrace entry, 1 separate bedroom, 1 bath, an open kitchen-living (URL HIDDEN) other words,cozy,but not a studio) Completely furnished ...you'll discover an easy place to stay and enjoy feeling 'like a local' in Arcata. It's so charming, you could call it a "pied-`a-terre"...French for 'foot on the ground' or a lodging for a short time.

Just a few blocks walk to the HSU university campus or the village plaza. Arcata is filled with cafes, artful shops, theaters, interesting, above-average groceries/delis,bakeries and a farmer's market. The famous Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Refuge and the Arcata Redwood Community Forest are just minutes from the apt.
Easy day-trip driving or biking distances to the redwoods, rivers, and scenic coast.

Fully equipped kitchen, w/dishwasher, gas oven/stove and microwave.
Plush queen bed, 2 twin sofa beds, slate-tiled shower, all linens and towels provided.
Wi-Fi, flat screen tv/dvd, and a selection of movies, books and games.

Pick up some locally-made Cypress Grove chevre and fresh-baked bread from one of the nearby bakeries. Make a salad with greens from the kitchen garden.
Have a glass of wine in the private, brick-walled garden terrace and pretend you are in Paris.

Offer a toast to your good fortune in choosing a place that's a lucky find.

My husband,Gene, and I are longtime partners in designing and building homes on the north coast. We met as students at Humboldt State University and stayed to make this community our home, raising our family here.
Some things we love to do: Gene is crazy about kite surfing, hunting for mushrooms,keeping our kitchen garden and little fruit orchard growing (do you need any lettuce? ...how about a nice plum, apple?) ... we both enjoy making dinner with friends, picking wild blackberries and huckleberries, impromptu picnics at the beach, mountaintop sleeping out for the meteor showers,sunset happy hours, canoeing,reading, going to plays, movies,(love Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep), live music,travel, any time spent with our grown kids and the World's 3 Most-Perfect grandsons. =^ )
