About this listing
Our cozy cabin is clean and picturesque. Nestled in the redwood forest, it feels like a treehouse. The top floor is a studio; the bottom floor is a bedroom. Private and serene, but close to town!
We have a six seater outdoor round hot tub at the base of our stairs. There is a chiminea and seating area and well, and you are welcome to make a fire in it.
This space is private and cozy, beneath redwoods. You will walk down several wooden steps to the front door. When you enter the home, you will find yourself in a modern, clean living space with couch, futon, television, and a dining area in the right hand corner. The windows overlook the forest, and you may see squirrels running along the low roof. The kitchen and bathroom are adjacent to the living area. When you walk down the stairs, you will find the bedroom, aglow in the natural light of the lush green forest.
Outside there is a heating area and a round hot tub, fits six
Guests will have access to the entire cabin, and backyard with hot tub and chiminaea.
Interaction with guests
Lance and I live across the property from the cabin. Feel free to text and we can come over and help with what is needed. In the summer, Lance offers brewery and nature tours. He is also willing to do Sunday breakfasts if you ask him.
Sunny Brae is a unique neighborhood, safe and quiet, quaint and forested. Walking the streets of Sunny Brae feels like walking in a paved forest. It is home to a variety of working folks, retirees, and college students. Murphy's Market, dry cleaner, Ace Hardware and Adriana's Mexican and American Restaurant are located approximately 15 minutes from the house by foot, 5 minutes by car. Sunny Brae is approximately 10 minutes from Arcata's downtown and from Humboldt State University. You can drive to the nearest beach, Clam Beach, or to the breathtaking Mallel Dunes, in approximately 20 minutes. You can access the newly created Arcata Community Forest hiking trails, entryway to a network of trails that joins the greater Arcata forest, by walking up Panorama Dr. Soon it will be possible to walk from one end of Arcata to the other by walking this trail. We are happy to recommend kid friendly places--we have a 10 year old--as well as entertainment, restaurants, breweries, and cider bars in Arcata's downtown. There is a list of our recommended restaurants and cafes in the cabin.
There are busses that pick up several blocks from the house, and we can supply you with information about local taxi service and/or car rental.
