"Humboldt Vacation
We had a very nice stay. Adorable little house, very convenient location. Clean and quiet. Checking in and out very simple. Everything was great.
The only thing I would suggest is that it’s time to replace the twin beds. Very uncomfortable. Even with that, I would stay again. Thank you for having us!"
Aug 31, 2023 - MARY S., Vacaville, CA

"Sweet Bungalow
Our sweet bungalow/cottage was perfect. The kitchen was amazing. Two or three people can work at the same time. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. The storage space was amazing. The owners thought of everything you might need. I would definitely recommend this little house."
Jul 26, 2023 - , Rancho Murieta, CA

"Very Good
We enjoyed our stay very much. It was on the weekend of the Kinetic Sculpture Race and the house was on the path of the racers! We didn't use the bikes like we'd have liked because of the fact they were in a location with numerous spiders. That freaked out my wife. Overall, the cleanliness of the house was good except for some of the dishes. The people before us didn't clean them well. Hopefully, we did leave them clean. Thank you all!"

"Thanksgiving stay
We had a lovely multi-generational stay over Thanksgiving 2022. The house is cute and conveniently located to town."

"Arcata cottage
Cute cottage. Well located. Good household supplies including towels and kitchen stuff. Would stay there again."
Oct 10, 2022 - Susan B., Beaverton, OR

"Perfect Spot
The house is cute, well-maintained, well-stocked, and positioned perfectly for a walk to the square. It suited our family perfectly for our visit to Arcata."

"Review of Potter's Bungalow
We were there four nights-two with our daughter. We also had our dog with us."

"great location with amenities
Central location, well equipped, and quiet neighborhood. Good for families as well. "
Aug 04, 2022 - Jovonne P., Tigard, OR

"Sweet and Cozy
The house was in a good location for day trips to see the Redwoods, which were amazing. It doesn't have air conditioning, but we didn't need it since we weren't there during the day and it was nice and cool at night. The bungalow was super clean, and had everything we needed. Everyone was comfortable, and it was a big bonus to be able to do our laundry. We didn't do much cooking, but the kitchen seemed well equipped. We had a great meal at the Campground - if you are looking for something a little special. My 18 year old daughter and I saved one afternoon for shopping in the cute stores in town. If you like thrifting, you'll be happy! A jet boat tour on the Klamath River is a must. We saw bears, eagles, and sea lions and it was a beautiful trip to the estuary."

"Cute comfortable house in a perfect location
The house is super cute and tastefully decorated. It had everything that we needed and would have wanted to a few night’s stay. The proximity to downtown Arcata is convenient. I did want to take one of the bikes that are in a shed on the property but could not find the bike locks. The guest book has the combo to get the bikes out and lock combos. I got the bike out and looked everywhere for the lock. I finally gave up and walked to the store. Fortunately, it is a fun neighborhood to walk around and the store is not too far. "

"Lovely!!!! Just need a couple tweaks
Perfect location and accommodations for our family of 5. Couldn't have been more comfortable and cozy....except, it would be great if there was a dining table big enough to seat all the guests, and increased bandwidth for the WiFi. Especially since TV is WiFi dependent. Normally I don't work on trips and don't need WiFi, but this time both my husband and I needed to work and we couldn't. Had to find it in town."
Apr 10, 2022 - , San Gabriel, CA

"Just what we needed
Comfortable, well equipped, convenient location to center of town. Have stayed there a couple of times now, and will seek it out again."
Apr 01, 2022 - Jeff T., San Rafael, CA

"Great home near Arcata town
We had a wonderful stay at this home Arcata town. Clean and more that enough room for small family. Wish we had time to use the bikes that come along with house. My only review of property, is you need to update your pots and pans. Looked old and worn. Other than that great place."

"Peaceful Retreat
I came here with my three children to visit family and honestly, the rental had everything I needed. It is such a cute, quaint and comfy little bungalow that it made it easy to just relax, disconnect and enjoy the pleasures offered in the beauty of the area. "
Jan 01, 2022 - Judy G., Jurupa Valley, CA

"Very cute, almost perfect but too many spiders.
As former HSU students we were thrilled to be back on our old stomping grounds. The house was very cute. Lots of space and great view for a small home. My only complaint is the spiders. My two year old spent the first night in the smallest bedroom in the back. The next day I checked behind her bed and found spider webs. I cleaned them up and then decided to check the bedside table. There were three HUGE spiders in a web. Terrified. I felt so bad for letting my child sleep with all of these spiders right next to her. As I started eating up this space two more spiders crawled out of the dresser and I lost sight of them. I kept my 2 year old in our bed for the last night. "

"Clean, Cozy & Well Located
Overall great place to crash with my family while visiting our son at HSU, very short drive to restaurants, cozy home, dishes were not as clean as we had hoped but all other items were well presented"
Oct 26, 2021 - Robert H., Novato, CA

"Great location
Great location and very quaint house. Everything was comfortable and in a relatively quiet neighborhood. The management team was quick to respond to our request for WiFi password as our first page in the book was missing. Absolutely would recommend for travelers. "
Aug 16, 2021 - Toni S., Boynton Beach, FL

"Not so great
Had I known how bad this house smells I would not have stayed here. The front room has a horrible thrift store/wet mildew smell that goes throughout the house and is overwhelming (I think it comes from the dresser in the front room). Also, there were other elements like loud road noise at night and cleaning details that were missed that were uncomfortable. "
Aug 09, 2021 - , Ashland, OR

"Great place to stay in Arcata
This home was awesome! Very cozy, clean, comfortable. Nice area, walking distance to the Plaza, I would stay here again."
Apr 15, 2021 - Pam S., Sanat Cruz, CA

"Amazing house, very comfortable & accommodating!
I stayed at potter’s bungalow for my birthday weekend and the house exceeded every expectation I could’ve had. It was a very clean and spacious house with all of the amenities we needed to cook and clean up with. The beds were so comfortable and the whole aura of the house was comfortable as well. Beautiful front deck to sit outside and enjoy morning coffee, not to mention the cute furniture & decor in each room. I would 10/10 recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable house during their vacation. I will definitely be coming back. "
Feb 16, 2021 - Sadie F., Shingletown , CA

"Potter’s Bungalow
The house was super comfortable and exactly as described!! Plenty of room to spread out, but cozy and quaint. Would recommend to a couple, or a whole family (I came with two kids and we had more than enough space!!)
Super quiet and close to downtown. Great location!"
Oct 02, 2020 - Rebecca M., Chico, CA

"Great stay
This is the only charming house in a dreary neighborhood of Arcata. Except for the formica countertops, the house has been lovingly restored and is very functional. On the inside it feels much larger than it looks from the outside. Since the weather was good, we used the picnic table in the backyard for most of our meals. We stayed there during the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, and it seemed very clean, none of us got sick."
Oct 02, 2020 - , Cupertino, CA

"Arcata Stay
Wonderful bungalow - perfect for our family of four. Great location - easy to walk into town and a short drive to hiking in the redwoods. Extremely clean and we felt very safe and comfortable during COVID. A great getaway!"
Jul 26, 2020 - Mindy P., Lafayette, CA

"Clean and cute
Nice little place Very clean. Very pleasant inside with tasteful decor.furniture was all comfortable except needs a new king mattress and would be nice to have a sturdier table that 4 people can dine at. Kitchen is adequate"

"Lovely Artisan Home in Arcata
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely little home. It was comfortable, nicely furnished, well decorated, and had comfy beds, nice linens, and a well supplied kitchen. The only thing that could have been upgraded were the blankets ~ a bit on the raggedy side. Otherwise, it was functional, comfortable, and attractive. "
Jul 10, 2019 - Erika S., Berkeley, CA

"comfy bungalow
My family and I enjoyed staying at Potter's Bungalow in Arcata. It was a perfect place to stay to attend the HSU graduation. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us. The living room was small but comfortable. Great perk for bringing a family was being about to make our own breakfast and lunch so we could save a little money and not eat out all the time. There is a small market close by that has all the things you might forget. I highly recommend staying there. The bungalow was very clean when we got there and had plenty of all the basic supplies needed to make your stay comfortable."

Nice little house and comfortable."

"Charming Arcata Cottage
4.5 stars. Three of us enjoyed your Potter's Cottage very much. There was more than enough space for us. It wasn't a big issue, but it was hard keeping my 2 older friends warm at night. There are 2 good heaters in the house: one baseboard heater in the bedroom with 2 twin beds and one wall heater on the dining / living room wall which keep those rooms toasty. When they shut their bedroom door for privacy, they had to shut out the warmth. The house was in a great location for our coastal vacation activities. We loved the pottery decorations in the rooms and the extra towels, even though we did not need all of them. The beds were comfortable. We decided that Arcata is our favorite coastal town to stay in and hope to return in the future, hopefully to this very cottage. I appreciated that the housekeeper showed up just as we were leaving since I never did figure out the trick of closing the lock box. I left my outside dog's tie out there, and she saved it for us, giving it to me when we returned from the beach. "
Feb 21, 2019 - Laura G., Red Bluff, CA

"Loved our stay in Arcata!
The Potter's Bungalow was very nice and very convenient to the beach, the Redwoods and downtown. We had a fabulous time."
Feb 08, 2019 - Phyllis G., Davis, California

"Christmas visit
What a great little rental. The place was clean and well appointed. The owners did a fantastic job when building this place.Everything we needed to cook was there.We would definitely stay her again."

"Family visit
This was a great place to stay with our 4 legged friends while visiting our son. And the artistic pottery features through out were wonderful. Hope to return!"

"Fun in Arcata
We recently stayed in the Potter's Bungalow - it was just perfect for us. The furnishing were very comfortable. And we loved how the Potter's theme was carried out in the decor - so clever."
Aug 28, 2018 - , Sequim, WA

"Sweet Cottage
This is a beautiful cottage- well appointed with all necessities- plenty of sheets, towels, etc. Lovely kitchen and easy layout for socializing. It's close to the square and all the downtown fun. For our family (with 3 grandchildren along), we were thrilled to find the playground only a block on down the street. The kids spent hours there! This is a very comfortable house- we will plan to stay again! Thank you :) "
Aug 15, 2018 - Kristina F., Madras, OR

"The most wonderful stay
Visiting my Brother & Suster in law and all their kids who live literally 1/2 a block from this wonderful house. We visited from Arizona and had a great stay. The house was clean, well stocked, perfectly groomed lawn and just plane fantastic. My kids LOVED the giant wall of Raspberry bushes in the backyard. I will definitely be staying here again when we visit again. So much better than a hotel. "
Aug 14, 2018 - Jodie J., Prescott, AZ

"Wonderful stay!
My family and I loved our stay at the bungalow. We had been on the road traveling for over a week and it was great for the kids to have their own rooms. The kitchen had everything we needed and the cottage is adorable! "
Aug 13, 2018 - Stacie E., Zimmerman, MN

"Cute house
House had 3 bedrooms and a yard, which was great for our family. While the front bedroom had blinds & curtains, the other 2 only had blinds, which wasn’t really enough to keep the sun out on early summer mornings/later summer nights. (Our three kids are under 7 yrs, so it made a difference to us.) We also would have preferred a little more dusting up under the twin beds since we have a crawler. Cute decor, especially the custom ceramic light fixtures! Be aware that your pet is not supposed to stay in the home alone, kennel notwithstanding. We would definitely stay here again."
Jul 25, 2018 - , Sunnyvale, CA

"Potters Cottage is Perfection
As this was my first experience with a VRBO I am afraid to say I may have been spoiled for any other vacation rental. The artistic touches, the location, and the amenities were all perfect for our stay in Arcata. The rental comfortably housed three generations where we all had our own space, and enjoyed our trip. The only thing missing was a pair of adirondacks in the back yard; however, we might have had harder time leaving. Absolutely loved all the property and all the homemade pottery!"
Jun 19, 2018 - Jessica R., Los Alamos, CA

"Really perfect
The house is lovely. So many thoughtful details: a well appointed kitchen, comfy towels and king bed (we only used one bedroom so no opinion of the other beds). We will Definitely be back to visit family!"
Jun 05, 2018 - Jennifer B., Brooklyn, NY

"Restful and relaxing vacation.
The bungalow was comfortable and nicely decorated. We had no problems to report. The location was great as I expected. Spent one day driving to Ferndale and the next two in Arcata."
May 18, 2018 - Geraldine M., paradise, CA

"Great location, comfy home
This charming, super clean, lovingly decorated home couldn't be in a better location for us, (near our family, and has everything to offer to meet our needs. The king sized bed in the master bedroom was a welcome plus, as so many rentals only offer queens. The washer and dryer was also welcome addition as often it is necessary to find a local laundromat, (and who wants to do that while on vacation? ) The kitchen was well equipped for cooking, the TV and internet worked great, the back yard was clean and 3/4 fenced, making it a nice place to hang out with our 1 yo grandson on sunny days. Another huge plus for us was that it's only two blocks away from one of the nicest playgrounds for young ones that we've ever seen. Correspondence with the folks ( we primarily worked with Jonna) managing the place was a breeze, as any time we had a question or needed something either Jonna or someone else was prompt to respond. While we paid a little more than we normally pay for a rental, this is one of the nicest properties we've ever rented and was well worth the price. Thank you to all who put in the extra thought and attention to make it warm and welcoming! We hope to return! Becky and Paul Donaldson (Helena, MT)"

"Nice quiet spot!
We loved our little vacation house. Bigger than it looks and has everything you need. The pottery they have designed is beautiful too!!"
Jan 26, 2018 - Sheryl M., Saranac lake, NY

"Fabulous Cottage
We adore this cottage! This is our second time renting it for our extended family (my family of four, plus my brother-in-law and his two kids). It makes the perfect chill place for our family when we're visiting the in-laws and need a little space.
I also love that there is a washing machine and dryer - great as we're usually at the tail end of our driving trip when we come here."
Jan 26, 2018 - Emily F., San Francisco, CA

"Wonderful Christmas!
Lovely home... fully equipped with everything we needed for a lovely holiday visit.
My only recommendation would be to please put handrails in the shower! My elderly mother had a very hard time.

I'll be back!"

"Nice location!
Went with family to visit HSU. This place is only a 5 minute drive from HSU and Arcata food and shopping. Very clean and comfortable. "

"November at the Potter's Bungalow
A great little bungalow close to all that Arcata has to offer. Very comfortable place during both rainy and sunny days."
Nov 20, 2017 - John S., Ashland, OR

"Very Cute & Cozy
We enjoyed our stay at The Potter's Bungalow very much. The home was cozy and quaint. The kitchen was well-stocked and ready to go. There were plenty of towels and linens too! The house is located far enough away from downtown to provide plenty of quiet and privacy, but just a quick 5-minute car ride to get you back into the mix if you're looking for a variety of eatery options and a bit of night-life. Last but not least, Jonna at Trinidad Retreats was very friendly and helpful. Thank you again for making our stay special. "

"Recommended place to stay in Arcata
I stayed here while working at HSU. The cottage is a short bike ride to campus and close to downtown Arcata. A delightful and comfortable cottage."
Oct 18, 2017 - , Fairfiled, Ca

"Great experience
We were in town for a wedding near Trinidad, and this was an affordable alternative to the Trinidad area, yet still quite close. The home has been been renovated with an artist's attention to detail. Nice location to downtown Arcata. We were at the beach and/or redwoods several times each day, and it was a quick ride up the 101 to all our locations."

"Great place for small kids!!
We loved the Potter's Bungalow with our 2 little children! It was easy access to everything and had all the amenities we needed to make it feel like a home away from home. Only suggestion would be to trim the bushes by the driveway as exiting driveway can be a little tricky sometimes but overall loved it!"

"Perfect getaway home
Charmin, cleaning and in a wonderful location. Would recommend this home in a heartbeat"

"Arcata Bungalow
The house was adorable. It was very well maintained and updated. Almost exactly one mile to the plaza. The only unfortunate thing was the neighbor came out as we were loading up in our cars at 4 pm and asked us to, "keep it down." That was quite surprising as we were just outside a few minutes loading stuff up to go to the beach. I wouldn't try to have an evening barbecue or dinner outside with six people for that very reason. The yard is so nice, it makes you want to be out there. The Trinidad retreats staff are super nice and available throughout the whole process and communication from them was top notch."
Apr 18, 2017 - Ashlie W., Mckinleyville, CA

"Arcata Trip
We had a great time - the house was very comfortable and had all we needed for a great get away. The grandchildren loved the room with the twin beds. Everyone appreciated the wonderful selection of art and pottery. The ceramic coffee cups were fun. Quiet at night - "
Apr 18, 2017 - Anne G., Folsom, CA

"To the Redwoods and beyond
More than enough space. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Everything needed to stay in all day, but we just used it as an excellent spot to lay our heads down each evening after exploring the coast and redwoods from Crescent City to Eureka. Could not have found a better place that was so convenient and comfortable - inside and on the pocket book."

"Potter's Bungalow
Lovely cottage. Worked very well for a party of 4. We enjoyed our stay."

"Very Comfortable
Everything, with the exception of location, was great! The house is a bit too far from downtown to walk. Not a big problem."
Nov 28, 2016 - Gilbert R., San Mateo, CA

"Beautiful Bungalow
This cute house has a great layout and is beautifully furnished with many lovely ceramic art pieces. We liked the well equipped kitchen and it's nice to have full cable tv.

We loved the foggy mornings and afternoon sun and the great Italian food at Mazzotti's on the plaza.

Great customer service from the property manager. I highly recommend this vacation rental and suggest the insurance if travelling with children or pets."
Nov 07, 2016 - , Culver City, CA

"Fall get-away
Lovely house and well attributed features. Neighborhood was quiet and not too far from Farmer's Market and Arcata Plaza. The house was small, quaint, and perfectly suited for 2 small families. "
Nov 07, 2016 - Alya B., San Francisco, CA

Great little house. Worked beautifully for me and 3 boys. Ceramic lights, art, and dished were great. Toughest thing was deciding what cup to use for coffee each morning."

Jul 21, 2016 - Maureen U., Highlands Ranch, CO

"Amazing and great
As a residential real estate developer, I was impressed by the thoughtful care and attention that went in to the renovation of this home. Every detail was planned and perfect. The pumpkins, blackberries and sunflowers growing in the backyard were a great surprise. The only drawback was the location (0.9 miles from downtown). "

"Best vacation ever!
We loved this adorable cottage and felt lucky to have found it! The house is in perfect shape. I'm not sure if that's because the owners only recently started renting it, but either way, we could not have been happier in this house. Everything we could have ever wanted was in the house. There were even beach towels that we could use when we went to the beach! (I wish that were noted on the website b/c then I wouldn't have brought mine from home.) The beds are super comfortable and the layout was perfect for our family of four. We cannot say enough good things about this house!

The location was perfect! Arcata is an adorable town with so much to offer, yet it retains a "small town" feel. The town square is about a two minute drive away and there are great restaurants and shops. Wildberries Market is like Whole Foods, but there is also a Safeway in town. The convenience store next door is perfect. The street is quiet and safe. We were only a 10 minute drive from the next town of Eureka which is much bigger (has a Target, movie theater, etc), but we never felt the need to go there. Arcata is MUCH cuter and just what we wanted in a "Redwood Forest" vacation.

We wish we could have stayed longer and can't wait to come back again to the Potter's Bungalow!! It was the best vacation ever!!"

"The Potters Bungalow
All three of us really enjoyed our getaway in Arcata. The little House was beautiful, and we were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable, and clean everything was. The neighborhood was quiet and extra nice. We would love to stay there again. nancy mcFarland"

"Reunion 2015
Everybody absolutely LOVED the Potter's Bungalow on 11th street in Arcata. It's so adorable and very inviting and cozy. We loved the close proximity to everything. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Our experience with Trinidad /Arcata retreats was wonderful."
