Humboldt Hideaway is a small off-the-grid LGBTQ+ queer homestead, but anyone is welcome.

This 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. If you want seclusion, this is probably not a good match.

The Camping Platform is 8' x 9'. Pitch a tent on this secluded camping platform. It's a short 3-minute walk up a steep hill from parking and to the outhouse composting toilet and main lodge structure, which has an outdoor kitchen, indoor shower, and wrap around deck for your use. Be aware there is some highway noise at the campsite.

The Flat Camp Spot is any flat spot that feels good to you. We can show you a couple options.

You can bring your own cook stove or we may have a 2-burner campstove for use.

The deck, outdoor kitchen, campfire ring, and surrounding outdoor areas are open for your enjoyment. The indoors is only for accessing a  shower, as needed.

Please note, the campsite is a 3-minute walk uphill from the parking area. You cannot drive right up to your site.

There is limited solar power in the lodge. Just ask if you need to charge a phone.

There is drinkable running water at the outdoor kitchen sink. But you have to be sure to use the filtered water faucet- not the regular tap faucet, which needs to be purified.

There's a pile of brush on site to use for camp fires, but it is untarped and may be wet

There is a cooler if you need it, and a large ice block  as well

Pets are welcome, but not inside the structures

Pee anywhere outside, poop in the outhouse composting toilet

Please pack out all of your trash as we don't have onsite garbage/recycle bins

Groceries and general shopping are a half hour away in Arcata

BOOKING A GROUP: If you have a big group of people, book multiple spots. There is room for 2 in the Parlor cabin, a guest room in shared space that can accommodate 2, and dispersed campsites that can handle up to 6 people. A total of 10 people. Get in touch if you want to book the whole place.

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.

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: It 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. And it is a half hour drive inland to swimming holes on the Trinity River.

OVERVIEW OF HUMBOLDT HIDEAWAY PROPERTY

Humboldt Hideaway is set on 10 acres of hilly terrain in the mixed fir and oak woods of Humboldt County, Whilkut indigenous unceded territory, a half-hour east of Arcata. 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.

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.

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!
