Your hidden home in the heart of Arcata, The Front Porch offers handcrafted lodging in true Humboldt style. We are fully equipped with everything you need. Have a drink on the covered porch or relax by the pond. Snuggle up & Netflix. Make yourself at home!
#8 is our micro studio, a small and cozy space with:
- a fully equipped kitchenette
- sumptuous queen size bed with hypoallergenic bedding
- small custom tile shower stall
- Smart TV w/ Netflix and free Wifi throughout the courtyard
- vivacious and joyful decor and wonderful window view of our private pond and garden courtyard
Enter the private courtyard through a coded gate. Unit #8 is on the east side of the property (walk straight through the courtyard). Guests have access to everything inside this unit, along with use of our bistro tables, and benches throughout the luscious courtyard. Please use the space, that's what its there for!
Interaction with guests
The owner lives nearby and a property manager is 5 minutes away. Both are available to help your stay be the best it can be.
Other things to note
Humboldt County requires a 12% short-term occupancy/bed tax (required from all hotels and vacation rentals in Humboldt Co.), and AirBnB does not collect this tax so you will receive a special message from us with that minor alteration to your rate to include that tax.
Our parking lot is secured behind an automatic gate and remotes are available for your use. It is a small parking lot and requires mindfulness to navigate. We have installed various safety features, but please park at your own risk.
All of our units are NO SMOKING and guests will be charged $250 if evidence of cigarette smoking is found in the unit.
Cats are NOT ALLOWED in the units. Guests will be charged $250 if evidence of cat occupation is found in the unit.
Both of these rules are for the safety and comfort for all of our tenants and guests. Thank you for understanding.
Unit 8 shares walls with two other units, so respecting a quiet-time after 9pm is a great way to respect the space.
Dog owners, your pals are accepted on a case-by-case basis. Please inform us of the demeanor/type of dog(s) in a message before you plan to book. And once accepted, all we ask is that you please pick up after your pets in the courtyard, and do your best to help with the dog hair woes by keeping them off the furniture and definitely off the beds. Thanks!
I've lived in Arcata for nine years and I'm so happy to call this beautiful place home. I moved here to attend HSU and received a degree in Elementary Education. Now my husband and I live in Blue Lake on our farm where we are raising almost eight-hundred fruit and nut trees and a small herd of beef cattle, which we sell at the Arcata Farmers Market on Saturdays (a must-visit if you're here on a weekend!!).
