Humboldt hideaway is a small intimate SHARED space with residents. The outdoor kitchen, deck with a view, and campfire ring are all connected to the main resident house. There are places of seclusion, but much of it is shared outdoor space. Humboldt Hideaway is a small off-the-grid LGBTQ+ queer land project in Northern California. It is set on 12 acres of hilly terrain in the mixed fir and oak woods of Humboldt County, a half-hour east of Arcata. Back in 2001, when it was established, it was undeveloped with nothing on it. It has since been built up with the scrappy efforts of amateur creative dreamers. It is a home and resource to extended LGBTQ+ communities by being a small-scale rural resource for learning and sharing useful rural living skills and being a destination for visits, artist and activist retreats, and host to small groups and events. Anyone is welcome at Humboldt Hideaway, but please understand that it is an intentional place committed to anti-oppression values. It is important that it remain a safer space for people identifying as queer and/or transgender, as well as a supportive space for women and people of color to freely be. Please make sure you do not anticipate any concerns/problems with this. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS: The property is conveniently located midway between the coast/redwoods and the Trinity River/Trinity Alps backpacking. It is a 45 minute drive to the coast of Trinidad, which has some of the most lovely coves and beaches and Patrick's Point State Park. It is a half hour drive to the coastal Ma-le'l dunes. And it is a half hour drive inland to swimming holes on the Trinity River. OFF-THE-GRID: The place is off-the-grid, no internet, only limited solar power, an on-demand propane water heater, and heated by woodstoves. Structures are a combination of natural building, salvaged, and new materials, with a mix of low-tech alternative technologies- all built with lots of love and help from friends. BOOKING A GROUP: There is potentially both cabin space and camping spots. The property can accommodate a group of up to 10 people. If you wish to book a group, please get in touch and we'll have you book all of the spaces- including some that are not currently listed, as they are in the shared lodge space. WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY: There is a guest room in the shared lodge space if you want to have a wheelchair accessible room. The lodge has a ramp for accessible entrance. This room is not listed, but get in touch if you want to book it.

The Parlor Cabin
Relaxation and inspiration!
Peaceful and inspiring describes our stay at Humboldt Hideaway. Our kind host, Sacha, welcomed my husband and I to the property upon our arrival and immediately made us feel right at home. During our stay at Humboldt Hideaway, we lodged in the cozy Parlor Cabin privately nestled in the forest. The cabin was impeccably well-maintained, and came equipped with a small wood stove, a comfortable bed, screened in porch, and a fantastic collection of unique literature. We also had access to an outdoor kitchen, tub, shower, outhouse and more. What impressed my husband and I most about this Hipcamp, aside from the beauty of the property, was Sacha’s informed approach to land stewardship. Sound ecological principles form the groundwork of Humboldt Hideaway, and it was truly a joy to learn about Sacha’s approach to oak rehabilitation. If you love nature, this Hipcamp will certainly put a smile on your face. The expansive communal deck has a gorgeous view of a distant ridge-line, and birds can be spotted darting and diving throughout the property. And, there’s nothing like taking a relaxing soak in the outdoor tub that overlooks it all. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Humboldt Hideaway, and would definitely recommend this Hipcamp. Thank you for your hospitality, Sacha. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Sacha was a great host! The site wasn't too far away from the Redwoods, but still very private. The outdoor kitchen space was awesome!

This location was a great stop for catching up on rest and relaxation on my way from the coast to Redding. The host was there to greet me and took me on a tour of the property, which was well-decorated and had plenty of amenities. I would recommend this site for anyone seeking an area with a great view and privacy from others. There property is easy to explore as well, and has a few hidden gems!
