Beautiful but no privacy

The drawback and best part of this place is the 3 walls made of windows. So beautiful in the morning, but COLD and NO PRIVACY, especially at night. No curtains and no lock on the door--The cabin is in the private backyard/property, but still nerve wracking as a woman traveling alone.

That said, Emily the host was AWESOME, super sweet, responsive and helpful, she helped me build a fire in the stove and lent me her cooler (although probably didn't need it since it was so cold lol).

I really appreciated having a sink and bathroom as well. The futon was surprisingly comfortable.

I would definitely stay here again if the hosts install curtains or some kinda screen for privacy (and a lock would be a bonus). The cabin was mostly hidden by some trees, but it was still spooky not being able to see outside at night and not lock the door, when almost the entire place is made of windows.

It was a lovely place to stay. Nice mix of cozy and refreshing. Wood burning stove was a huge plus.

This is a special spot! Rustic (BYO bedding, wood-stove heating source), but very cute and cozy, and convenient to the center of Arcata. Ted and Emily were communicative, friendly, and went above and beyond the make sure I was comfortable.

Great spot in Arcadia! The cabin has everything you need and is a great spot to stay. The hosts are communicative and the cabin is clean/well stocked.
