“We loved this place! Nicely tucked in on main street and amazingly quiet for the location. Short walk to town square.   The bed is very comfortable. The retro living room and kitchen work well and are fun!”  Guest review on….

SWEET HOME STAY vacation rental, which can accommodate up to 4 guests, is a free-standing single story 2 bedroom/1 bath home  located in a great central Arcata location, known locally as Arcata’s Top-O-The-Hill Neighborhood, 4 blocks from the Humboldt State University Gateway, 2 blocks from the northtown retail district, and 6 blocks from Arcata’s downtown Plaza square. This property is EXCELLENCE RATED by Tripadvisor.

Sweet Home Stay is a charming early 1950’s era bungalow with a private garden and fully fenced yard, ideal for guests who travel with their pets. This vacation rental is appointed in whimsical mid-century vintage style: the floors are hardwood and Marmoleum, retro accessories and artwork collected by the owners enhance the décor, and the kitchen features a 1946 O’Keefe & Merritt gas range in pristine condition. The living room is a comfortable conversation area with leather club chairs and loveseat, vintage mosaic coffee table, and a flat screen TV. The master bedroom is traditional and features a queen sleigh bed, armoire with large flat-screen TV, a cozy reading area with a sumptuous overstuffed club chair, fireplace, and mica reading lamps. The second smaller bedroom has a twin bed, desk, TV, and table with a reading lamp. A foam futon is available to set up as a second twin bed. The bath features a mint-condition porcelain soaking tub with chrome telephone fixtures and shower conversion.  There is a laundry center on the premises.  The fully fenced yard,  planted with climbing roses, has outdoor seating and a barbeque for grilling. Off street parking is available.

The ideal location allows guests to leave their vehicle and stroll down the street to the downtown Plaza or northtown retail districts, the world famous Arcata Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary, or Redwood Park trails. Shop at Wildberries Marketplace nearby (like a Whole Foods Market, but locally owned), or if visiting Humboldt State University campus, the HSU Gateway is just 4 blocks away.
