a little about..


This craftsman-inspired cottage is in a quiet neighborhood adjacent to Stewart Park and is only an easy ten-minute walk to the city center or to the Humboldt State University campus. The cottage interior is comfortable and well appointed, with open floor plan that includes a living, dining and kitchen area.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a range, microwave and a refrigerator. Pots, pans and cutlery of superior quality make this kitchen a pleasure to cook in. The tiled bathroom features a tub/shower combination. The living room sofa makes into a bed, which can sleep either one additional adult or two children. Also included at no additional cost is a large selection of DVD movies for use on the large flat screen TV, wireless Internet and many books. Beautiful maple floors, hand woven carpets, leather furniture, historic photography and original artwork by local artists add warm ambiance to the main living area.

Parkside Cottage is a one bedroom (not a studio) unit that allows privacy from the guest using the sofa bed in the living area. Enjoy a good nights sleep on the queen sized bed which features an ultra-plush pillow top mattress, down pillows (microfiber available) and fine linens. Paintings by the owner, an accomplished artist, enhance the bedroom decor. Our accommodation is child friendly and for a small additional charge we can provide guests with the following items: Graco Pack And Play, a safety gate, a high chair and a stroller. Stewart Park next door is child friendly.
