We really enjoyed our one night stay at the Streamside: comfortable bedrooms, great living area to spread out in, convenient and quiet location. We only used the kitchen for breakfast but it seemed well equipped. It was great to see the thoughtful compost and recycling set up. (After staying here, it felt like we were walking eco-disasters on the rest of our trip, since few hotels or condos offer even the most basic of recycling options.) The Co-op a couple of minutes' walk away was perfect for picking up baked goods and fruit to go with coffee at the condo.
Activity and Interests
Arcata is located just 7 miles north of Eureka and less than an hour's drive to State and National Redwood Parks, home to the tallest trees in the world. Enjoy majestic redwood groves, miles of pristine coastline, Humboldt Bay, a famous wildlife refuge, and a lively town square in arty, progressive Arcata, which is also home to Humboldt State University. Between scenic Humboldt Bay and forested hills, our town is a popular destination for visitors to the redwoods and is the ideal 'home base' from which to take recreational day trips or attend events on the Arcata Plaza, including the Kinetic Sculpture Race, Oyster Festival, Pastels On The Plaza, North Country Fair, Arts Alive, and Saturday Farmers Market. Within a 15-30 minute drive from Arcata, visit Old Town Eureka's Victorian Waterfront Heritage District, the Victorian Village of Ferndale, or the quaint fishing village of Trinidad, Trinidad Head and beaches, and Patrick's Point State Park.
