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

This is a small intimate place, closely entwined and SHARED with residents. The outdoor kitchen, deck with a view, and campfire ring are all connected to the main resident house. But the Parlor Cabin is tucked away and somewhat secluded.

The Parlor Cabin is a 12 x 12 one-room private sleeping cabin in the woods. It has a woodstove for heat and full size bed. A screened porch with a rocking chair. You will use an outhouse and outdoor kitchen along with the one-room cabin. The cabin is a short walk from the parking and to the outhouse composting toilet and main lodge structure, which has an outdoor kitchen for your use, an  indoor shower in the resident's space, and wrap around deck that is shared with residents. 

There is no internet.

There is no electricity in the cabin.

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

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

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

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

Bring your own wood for the woodstoves/fire ring or you can purchase wood onsite for $10 for a 1.5 x 1.5 sq ft bundle

There is bedding and blankets provided for the Parlor cabin

If you would like to bring an animal friend, please check-in first

Pee anywhere outside, poop in the outhouse composting toilet

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.

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.

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.

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.
