    Beautiful, Warm & Welcoming-redwoods, River, Beaches

    Romantic McKinleyville vacation home in Butte with spa tub
    Enjoy a secluded retreat with a hot tub. This contemporary chalet in the Redwoods is bathed in sunlight and is a short stroll to the Mad River and only minutes from HSU and downtown Arcata's local shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and Community Forest. The Redwood Chalet-downstairs is a hand-crafted, newer home with welcoming covered front porches, custom interior wood work, hardwood and tiled floors, and large windows throughout giving one the feeling of being a part of the surrounding, sun-filled redwood forest. This self-contained 2 bedroom/1 bath (1-4+ pers.) includes queen-sized beds, fully equipped kitchen, views & privacy. Also includes big lawn and outside area for badminton, sunbathing, and BBQing. And a HOT TUB. This south facing home is warm, rustic contemporary and welcoming for couples, a family, larger gatherings and anybody seeking solace in a private Redwood Oasis. (Note: the Redwood Chalet-upstairs (see vrbo#391727) is separate self-contained rental and includes 2 bedrooms + cozy sleeping loft upstairs (for 1-6 pers.). Both can be rented together for larger gatherings. (for feedback, see reviews for the Redwood Chalet #391727) *3 night minimum during 3 day weekends and holiday weeks (incl. 4th of July) Also, if you have a little time to explore, our location is just a short drive to beautiful local beaches near Eureka and Trinidad, & natural paradises of Patricks Point State Park, Big Lagoon and Redwood National Park. *Note' re Health and Safety preparedness for your arrival* Our 47 acre Redwood forested setting provides an ideal place and way to vacation or get away from populated areas during this current time. We ask all of our guests to only arrive healthy and symptom-free. Our extensive cleaning procedures between guest stays meet the highest CDCs Hospitality sanitizing recommendations . There are antibacterial hand soap and Multi-purpose disinfectant cleaner in the rental. At this current time, we provide basic linens, bed spreads and towels, but have removed decorative pillows and blankets. And we are asking all our guests to tumble dry on high heat (approx 20 min) any personal, fabric clothing or additional bedding items before bringing into our rentals.

      Very nice place to stay

      We enjoyed our stay so much we added another night on. The house has everything you need. I would say only downfall was the amount of noise you can hear from the people walking around upstairs. But it was beautiful and had a lot of fun playing badminton and using the hot tub.

        Thanksgiving stay was only ok

        Pros: Can’t beat the surroundings. Beautiful and secluded. Clean and comfortable. Badminton setup was great for the kids. Easy drive to Redwood NP and Arcata Airport. Not as hard to find as other reviews mention (maybe Google Maps is updated). Cons: No napkins, no paper towels, dish and handsoap watered down to the point of limited effectiveness, not sufficient kitchen utensils to prepare a Thanksgiving meal, 4 bath towels with no access to laundry, 4 parking spots for 2 units (this was a factor because the other unit’s guests had three vehicles). Here’s the kicker: sound propagates from upstairs unit with extreme clarity. Every footfall, cupboard closing, door closing (shakes the house), and even conversation were clearly and loudly transferred downstairs. Toilet flushing upstairs is very loud downstairs. It became a problem because the upstairs guests were loud and active until around 4 a.m.

          Wonderful location

          Enjoyed our stay here. Overall this place is great. However the bathroom needs a remodel and/or good cleaning. Disappointed in the state of the bathroom but the rest of the place was great!

            Great stay

            This is a beautiful place to stay. Clean, quiet, peaceful and comfortable. The detailed driving instructions were on point and very helpful. Definitely recommend if you want a quiet place to stay, but close enough to town.

              Peace in the redwoods

              Stayed 3 nights here while we visited the Redwoods. Perfect location. Right in Between Humboldt state park and Redwood national Forest. The setting is beautiful. Quiet and beautiful.
