This studio is above our detached garage, about 30ft. in front of our house. It has a private entrance with stairs up to the loft. Perfect for one or two people. We share this property with some stray cats, a couple of deer friends, and pesky racoons. As we are about 40 yds off the road, there is private parking with motion detecting nightlights and a sidewalk leading to the entrance. The room has a small refrigerator, micro-wave oven, student desk and old, wooden office chair. Two folding chairs and a table are provided for sitting on the balcony. There is a twin bed and a scissor futon couch that makes into a full-sized bed. Towels, soap, shampoo and bedding for the couch-bed are provded. Private parking is 20 ft. from the entrance with motion detecting nightlights for your safety. Guest will have access to the studio and our yard, which borders on a dedicated wetlands. There are no trails. We are providing a clean, quiet and private space for guest to enjoy their time here in Arcata and Humboldt County. We are availabe for directions and recommendations, otherwise, we ask that our privacy be respected. Our neighborhood is quiet and rural, surrounded by trees. We have deer that roam our yard, sometimes on a daily basis. There is a good coffee/ sandwhich shop about 50yds from the house - they do not give "to go" cups, so we provide them. There is a small shopping center 1 mile towards Arcata that has a friendly neighborhood market, laundromat, hardware store and restaurant. This is a bike friendly area, with wide bike lanes. We are 2.5 miles from Humboldt State University - a 5 minute drive or a 10 minute bike ride. We are 3 miles southeast of Arcata and 4 miles northeast of Eureka. We are 1 mile from the nearest public transit. It is at Sunny Brae shopping center. This is the southernmost point for the Mad River transit and connects in Arcata to Redwood Transit that connects Fortuna, Eureka and Trinidad.
“Jerry is a very hospitable host. I stayed here for over 2 weeks off/ on. He is respectful of guests privacy, and there’s a washer/ dryer in the garage for guest use! There are 2 different units here, so if one is booked, check out the other unit with a full kitchen. I couldn’t have had a better stay, thanks again Jerry!”

“We had an excellent stay at Laurene's place. There were many thoughtful amenities available, such as blackout curtains, coffee and tea (though we brought our own), a recycling bin, lots of extra blankets, a great electric heater and an ionizer, plenty of dishes and several places to lounge, including the cute table and chairs on the porch, and awesome futon in the loft! Laurene was very easy to reach and added some thoughtful attention to cleanliness amid the current COVID-19 crisis. We didn't want to have to travel during this time but felt comfortable knowing that extra care was taken. The location was great for our needs (easy access to Arcata and other parts of McKinleyville). We would definitely stay here again. Thanks again, Laurene!”

Enjoy the warm morning sun rising over Mad River valley from a private deck with complementary coffee and tea. We diligently clean to protect your health and safety.
“I highly recommend Janna’s place if you are in the area. The space was larger than we expected and super cozy. The directions were perfect. We got in fairly late and had no trouble getting situated. I only wish I was in the area more often. 10/10 would stay there again.”
