Jane's Creek Cottage is the perfect place to stay if looking for a quiet retreat while exploring the Redwoods or visiting Humboldt State University. Families will love staying here while visiting their HSU student and will feel right at home. Start the day with coffee on the covered porch then walk or drive to the Redwoods, campus or downtown, all are just a short distance away. After a day of adventure guests will love returning to this charming retreat that feels like a restored farmhouse filled with both modern and vintage decor. The wide plank faux wood floors add to the country ambiance. Visit the Arcata Farmer's Market or wonderful gourmet, organic grocery stores, Wildberries or the Co-Op and return to cook a delicious meal in the fully stocked kitchen with a gas-stove. Don't feel like cooking then throw some local grass fed beef or fresh fish on the propane BBQ and dine al-fresco on the patio. Sorry, no dishwasher but plenty of dish and glassware provided.
Guests will enjoy a good night's sleep on the comfortable new Queen beds with high quality bedding. Enjoy the large walk-in shower after a day hiking trails in the nearby Redwood Community Forest. Then relax on the sectional sofa and watch a movie on the Smart T.V. with 200 channels. Free WiFi is included. Washer and dryer available for guest use in detached laundry room next door.

This cottage is on a quiet private property that is shared by two other residence and local wildlife, deer are frequently seen. The owner works on-site and offers guests complete privacy but is friendly and willing to tell you about his home and the local area. *Please help us be "good neighbors" by following quiet hours between 10 pm - 8 am, parking in designated spots and respecting the privacy of the other residents. ** Parking is limited to 2 vehicles maximum with additional visitor parking for 1 more car with prior approval.

"Great Spot for a visit to HSU
Spacious, private and comfortable. I'll definitely book again.
Note to out-of-towners: If you are flying into ACV , book your taxi from the airport a few days before you arrive. Rental cars sell out fast and there's no public transit from the airport."

"Great find!
This place totally met our needs. It was spacious, clean, private and super comfortable.
I especially appreciated the fact that it didn’t have the smell of highly scented products which I’m sensitive to.
The kitchen was well equipped. The whole place is well equipped while not feeling cluttered.

"Jane's Creek Cottage- a great place to stay
Our stay at Jane's Creek Cottage was a fantastic experience. The cottage was great- conveniently located, very comfortable, well-stocked, and spotlessly clean. The reservation process and check-in/check-out were all super easy. We stayed here for our visit to Redwood National and State Parks and the surrounding areas. I'm not sure when my next visit to the area will be, but I will definitely make this property my first choice for accommodations. Everything was perfect."

"Cute Home in Quiet Arcata
Loved the quiet house and it was a great location to easily get to campus, explore hiking trails, or just enjoy all the spots downtown. Our only con was how expensive the cleaning fee was in comparison to other rentals we've stayed in."

It was awesome. Very cute and warm. We enjoyed our stay. Perfect location for north and south travel. Home was very clean and everything was there for your use. Easy check in and out. Loved it! Thank you"

"Perfect Home
This home exceeded our expectations. It was beautifully secluded, laid out nicely, and really clean. Their expectations of us were clearly laid out which was very appreciated. One thing, though, is lack of storage. It would have been helpful to have some drawers in the bedrooms.
There was a beautiful buck (deer) resting in back of the house when we got there. He was a wonderful welcome."

"Cute, clean home for a small family vacation.
The rooms are open and furnished well, but also leave space for your own items. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom was clean and spacious. Perfect little spot for our family of three with a crawling infant. "

"A nice retreat.
We had driven up from the Santa Cruz area to do some house hunting. Jane's cottage was well appointed with a large kitchen and dining area."

"Excellent place to stay
Small house with everything you need. Nicely decorated and kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots, dishes you will need. Laundry room adjacent to house.
The only negative is the mattresses are soft and lumpy.
Great location to travel around area."

"Great Redwoods
We were thinking we rented a tiny cottage but in reality it had plenty of space for a family of four. Perfect location to visit the redwoods (which are fabulous) although not walkable into town."

"Great weekend!
Nice, quiet and clean location. Well equipped."
Jul 04, 2019 - , Shawnee, KS

"Perfect place to stay
We rented this cottage for 3 nights as part of our trek up to Redwoods National Park and the Trinidad/Agate beach area. We have traveled extensively for work and pleasure and are picky about the places that we stay. This cottage was perfect - great location close to the freeway and a very short drive to downtown Arcata. Nicely remodeled and decorated with plenty of space for 2-4 people. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need for a short or long term stay. There were also several nice touches - extra pillows and blankets, throw blankets for the couch, games, travel books. We loved the area and hope to stay here again!"

"Lovely Retreat
My family was very comfortable in this lovely Jane’s Creek Cottage. We were there to visit Humboldt State University and this is very close by. The appointments are beautiful and I would highly recommend to others. (What a small world Stephanie ��)."

"See You Again Soon
We so enjoyed our stay at Jane's Creek Cottage. The home was very clean,very welcoming and very comfortable. The managers are very responsive to any questions that I had. The location is perfect to the Redwoods, the beaches and hiking. There are great restaurants and festivities. My daughter and young family just moved to the area. We will certainly be visiting often."

"Cute house in great location
This cute, clean, well-maintained house was the perfect place to stay while we visited our daughter at Humboldt State University. We would definitely stay here again."

"Quaint and Comfortable!
We really enjoyed our stay at Jane’s Creek Cottage. It was very clean and well kept. The rental agency was quite helpful. The owner/manager showed up to do some work on another building at one point. He is a very nice and welcoming sort. The mattresses are soft and comfortable. The only thing I would like to have been different, is the bed frames. I found them to be shin bruisers and potential toe breakers. Overall a wonderful place!"

Very quiet nice place. "

"Early September beautiful weekend
Cottage was extremely clean & very quiet. We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean and the house was comfortable. Had one of the best afternoon naps with ocean breeze blowing through the window. Highly recommend staying here."

"Great hiuse
We had a wonderful time at the house. Very clean and just what we needed for a landing place between the redwoods and the ocean. "

"Cozy cottage with hummingbird views
We just loved this cottage. Surprisingly spacious, nicely equipped and comfortable. Our favorite VRBO yet. We didn’t know how good the location would be but it was great. We like to cook and the kitchen was great for us. Views out every window of trees or greenery in a quiet location easy to go north or south or even east. "

"Modern Warm And Practically New!
We stayed here for a week of fun in Redwood country and were happy to come back to this quiet, clean, spacious and relaxed abode each evening to grill, and then relax on the sectional couch in the very inviting living room. The entire place appears to be completely restored (even the grill was new) and seemed as though we might have been the 2nd or maybe 7th guests, and we enjoyed that ‘new car’ feeling. The location is very convenient: we took day trips up and down from Arcata. The house is just outside of this very charming college/cultural/foodie friendly town.

We met one of the owners who happened to be working on a property that was next to this house, and had a good chat: he was very clear about him doing the building/remodeling and his wife the decorating! Good for all of us, because they’re both very skilled!

We did mention to him our only two complaints, minor as they were:
1) the drip coffee pot is for one person: tiny. We dealt by just making multiple pots, then going into town (5 min drive) to one of many great coffee spots.
2) some of the windows (none in kitchen) did not open or did not have a screen (master br), and this did cause the air to feel a bit stuffy during sleep and early morn, because of the bedroom doors being closed.

But, really, other than those two minor things (although we are crazy with our coffee), we were very comfy (My wife and I liked the pillows we slept on so much we ordered the same online!), and would rent here and from these owners again."

"Loved it!
We explored the redwood national park and arcata and were able to come home to a place that felt like home!"
Jul 19, 2018 - , Wadsworth, OH

"Lovely Stay in the Redwoods
This home is lovely! Simple yet excellent! The colors and furniture are comfortable and relaxing. Everything we needed was there and the level of the quality of bedding, kitchenware and furniture was high. I would mention that you could hear the highway (US 101) and that it was a bit more distant from town than I’d thought from what was written. That was fine for us, but a note. "

"Wonder family house
Super easy! Very close to everything. Our kids loved the park across the street . Trinidad retreats made it very easy have a stress free trip. "

"Arcata visit to HSU
Had a great experience- house was super clean, very nicely decorated, and beds very comfy & plenty of towels. Minor but worth mentioning as a renter: Would like more seating in the living room as the couch doesn't seat 4 people easily. It's not as close to HSU as I would have liked but only a few minutes by car, we had hoped to walk (and one can walk but the street is very busy/up a hill). Would definitely come back when visiting son at HSC and hope to do so real soon. Main street is a bit busy and can hear in one of the bedrooms but not an issue unless you are looking for a quiet retreat. Highly recommend! Thanks so much!"
Jan 26, 2018 - Michael G., Orangevale, CA

We had a wonderful stay! The cottage was so clean and comfy. The space is larger than what the photos seemed. The beds were comfortable, the decor was relaxing. The towels were plush and fluffy! Great spot and close to HSU. We would stay again for a next visit to the area. "

"Perfect place to stay in Arcata
Property manager's were great to work with and the location and affordability of the property made for a wonderful get away for our group which included spouse and grandchildren."

"Great Place to stay
Cute house with all the amenities. Soft bed. Soft towels. Quite. Had a great time. We will return"

"Beautiful cosy rental
We found the cottage in first class condition. Clean, modern but cosy with just about everything we needed for our short stay. Great location just on the edge of town with a lovely little kids play area opposite. Would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.."

"Family stay for north coast adventure.
The house was nicely renovated. Really liked the interior decor. Renovated farmhouse,situated on a hillside, adjacent to owners main house. Quiet location. Good privacy. Great location for excursions up the coast."

"Jane's Creek Cottage Home away from home
If you are looking for a home away from home, this is the perfect place. This beautiful spacious full furnished house came with all kitchen & bathroom necessities, as well as cable tv & a bbq grill with outdoor sitting area. Very affordable & we even had a baby deer visit us daily. This cottage is tucked away in a very nice quiet neighborhood & has a front porch with chairs for added comfort as we had our coffee/hot chocolate. The only negatives were that we would have loved a washer/drier in the house instead of having to go to a laundromat & more screens on the windows so that we could have opened more of them. However, we will definitely stay every time we are in CA & highly recommend this cottage to everyone we know. "

"Outstanding Stay at Jane's Creek Cottage
Jane's Creek Cottage was an extremely pleasant end to our Pacific Northwest road trip. The cottage was spacious and spotless. It had the charm of an older home but had been completely remodeled so it had every modern convenience. The furnishings were stylish and comfortable. The master bedroom had such incredible light from the windows! The cottage sits apart from nearby properties offering privacy to enjoy barbecuing and sitting out on the porch. It is has easy access from Highway 101 and is close to campus and downtown. Perfect location. Loved the old barn on the property! Very scenic! Will return to Jane's Creek on our next visit to Humboldt County."

"Simply perfect!!
This newly remodeled cottage was really awesome! It was totally **** and span and had every attention to detail was made. I slept well in wonderful bedding/pillows/sheets and had high quality bath towels...and I'm a real particular about good bedding/towels. The kitchen had everything you'd need and the home was nicely decorated in a sorta Crate and Barrel look. It was a close walk to town and the HSU campus.
I travel a lot and have stayed at some of the best and worst places...this was right at the top. And the property managers were also very helpful, nice and professional.
Thank's for the wonderful get away and truly relaxing experience while seeing my son graduate. I was lucky to find this place and would highly recommend coming here. I hope to return again at the end of the summer.
Big thanks again!
