This recently renovated, quaint, crisp and clean studio cottage is a 10 minute walk to the Redwoods, 5 minutes to shops and a short drive to the Beach. Little Buttermilk is nestled in a private garden setting in the quiet neighborhood of Sunny Brae. We do have other properties so if our cottage is booked during your ideal stay please feel free to inquire!
We invite you to stay in our beautiful, recently remodeled rustic eco chic cottage in Sunny Brae, Arcata. The cottage is bright and cheery with elegant bamboo floors, ceramic countertops and locally made organic cotton/hemp curtains on all windows. Repurposed furniture is all handmade in the cottage! The space is set up like a studio with one small room that shares the kitchen, dining space, and a very comfortable and new sleeper sofa. Little Buttermilk is ideal for two but does sleep four. The private bedroom nook fits a tall raised queen size bed with storage cabinets above and below. There is a full bathroom with beautifully tiled shower, a closet for hanging your clothes as well as a separate dressing room. The Cottage hosts a wee but plentiful kitchen, perfect for preparing a simple but luxurious meal to enjoy on the private garden patio. Little Buttermilk Cottage offers a relaxing environment for a small family vacation, a romantic getaway or time away exploring the beauty of the Humboldt Coast!
Little Buttermilk Cottage has its own private gated entrance where a short solar lit path takes you back to your own private oasis. There is plenty of free parking on the street. There is a coded lockbox so you may arrive anytime after check in and have access.
Our family lives in the house next door. We understand your need for privacy on your stay away from home but are also available for answering questions as they arise. We are more than happy to offer our direction and assistance. We ask that guests please feel free to text or call as needed.
We have one very friendly labrador named Sid, who may bark and wag to welcome you, but is completely quiet and well behaved right after. We also have four cats who may try to come by for a visit, Leo is a loving Manx, Tupac and Poncho are adorable playful brothers and JuJu is our rescue kitty.
Bikes and BBQ may be available upon prior request.
