Enjoy the Redwood Coast at Strawberry Creek Retreat. This studio style cabin features newly upgraded floors, kitchen and bathroom. It’s perfect for couples or the lone traveler. It has a private deck overlooking Strawberry Creek. And, it’s just a stumble from the Clam Beach Tavern! Just remodeled – it is a short walk to the wonderful Clam Beach which has miles of rolling dunes, beach, ocean, and follow the strawberry creek along the little wildlife sanctum it creates. Bring your bikes, or rent them nearby, and ride the fantastic coastline including the Hammond Trail, which extends from Clam Beach to Arcata through the bottoms and along the Mad River.

This cabin is in a semi-wooded environment, by the Clam Beach Tavern, off a main road, and is ideal for those who are not sensitive to sound, people, or music. Do not be fooled by the curb appeal, or lack-there-of, of the tavern. The cabin is newly remodeled and charming for what it is. There are no ocean views from the cabin, but it is literally just down the road.

The Clam Beach Tavern is a rustic, charming tavern frequented by locals and features many games including pool table, giant sized Jenga, and a shuffleboard table. They may or may not have live music, but the drinks are always good.

You will love staying at this suite, and this is a great central point for going to all the beaches, lagoons, Redwoods National Park (just 25 minutes north). Trinidad is just 5 minutes north and downtown McKinleyville, with many great restaurants, stores, a movie theater, and a brewery is just 5 minutes south! And, you're just 5 minutes from the Arcata/Eureka Airport (code ACV) which is in McKinleyville. Humboldt State University and downtown Arcata around 15 minutes south and Eureka, with it's fun Old Town District, is just another ten minutes past Arcata.

One small dog (only) is permitted at this house for an additional fee. Please contact us directly to inform us there will be a pet, and we will at that time add the additional pet fee. Undisclosed pet, without paying the additional pet fee will warrant a $150 fine.

Perfect stopover after a long drive

Review by
After a long drive from SoCal, we found our rental cozy, clean, and comfortable. The deck out back offered privacy and a nice place to enjoy the fresh evening air.

Clean easy place for a night that takes dogs

Review by Diane D.
We didn't love the location on the side of the road, but it was quiet and clean and they let you stay for just one night. Short drive to a beautiful beach - Clam beach.

Thanks for the review of the Strawberry Creek Retreat. It sounds like this little place was a good fit for your and so glad to hear that you may have enjoyed the tavern, too. I have seen some great live music there in the past, and it can be a fun place to hang out for sure. Easy to get to, and close to the beach, this Strawberry cottages are perfect for those on budget travel or looking for minimal accommodations.

Doggy vacation

Review by
We really enjoy our stay there. The tavern isn't loud at all. We have stayed in two different suites. In #2 and #3. Both were great. It's super close to clam beach and we love that. Our dog loves that beach. I would for sure stay again.

Cozy and clean

Review by Cam L.
Strawberry Creek Retreat was a great place to stay as a home base for checking out the redwoods. The unit was small but cozy and worked well for a couple. The kitchen and bathroom were clean and fully usable. WiFi was pleasantly speedy for those who like to stay connected. The location is indeed directly adjacent to a tavern. Light sleepers might have a little bit of trouble with that, although the tavern wasn't active too much past about 10-11 PM. The small size of the unit meant the fridge is right next to the bed, so again light sleepers might be affected. Overall the stay was great and it was a more than adequate spot for redwoods action for a couple of nights!

Manager Response:
Renting a place near a tavern can be fun or it can be a challenge, but it sounds as though you had a good stay while visiting redwoods. These units are cozy and finding the appropriate place to put things can be tough, like a fridge, but I do hope it helped having it there for its use. Thank you again for your stay and I hope you will return to stay in one of the other units in the future.

Holiday in the near Red Woods

Review by Jerry D.
We flew into SF rented a car and drove 6 hours north to the cabin. When trying to enter the cabin we were given the wrong lock box combination ( frustrating) After 1/2 hour called our contact who happened to be Jessy, he found the problem and gave us the correct combination. Ounce inside we found a very comfortable cabin with all the amenities. Ounce settled in we started to relax and found the TV had 2 our home we have 4 tv's all with their own remote. OK you needed one to turn the TV on and the other too change stations and for volume control. Not evident at the time so frustrated again we called Jessy. The cabin was perfect until we went out on the back deck. They had trimmed the large pine's branch's opening up the woods views around the deck. The patio table & chairs had sap from the tree's on them along with an ash tray full of ash's. FYO with pine sap, nail polish remover will easily remove all with very little problems. From that point on we had a good time, the bar & market next door was convenient for supplies.Mckinleyville was a pleasant surprise with a Whole foods grocery store, many small shops and the Six Rivers Brewing company on the south end of town, Good food and Great Brews. Thanks again to Jessy for helping so much!

We are glad you were able to get in with assistance form our staff. McKinleyville is a great spot and is more modern than one would think. Hope we can host again!

My Town Stay

Review by
I have stayed here before, so I am a repeat customer. I like Strawberry Creek because it is reclusive and quiet. It is my down time place for a very busy life. Having a Tavern next door is wonderful as I can have a cocktail or two and walk to my room. The regulars are friendly and happy.

Tidy and cozy Mackville cottage

Review by Aaron B.
Had a relaxing getaway with my girlfriend in one of the Strawberry Cottages. Parking was tight and the cabins are so close to the Clam Digger you couldFlick a booger and hit it, but it was a great location(close to the Highway and beach) and the place was cozy, clean, and functional. Bed was a tad bit on the soft side(futon), but that’s a preference thing for us.

Manager Response:
Thanks for this review! Made me giggle. Yes, close to Tavern, but we don't hide that fact you are in close proximity. Hope we can host again! Did you enjoy ping pong or bikes that we have there?

fun little spot for the traveling surfer

Review by Bob P.
I stayed in two different units at this location and found them both to be very clean and cozy. The decks out back offer a relaxing back drop while the bar nextdoor was perfect for a night cap. The proximity to local surf spots is a huge plus.

Manager Response:
Thanks! The Strawberry Cabins are great for pit stops while surfing and other recrateing in our area. Hope we can see you again! We have two more for you to get acquainted with on the property.

Quaint little Cabin

Review by
The cabin was quite nice and cozy. Bed was comfortable and everything was well laid out. My biggest complaints were the directions to the cabin made no sense and the parking situation was not ideal. There is a tavern next door but it never got too loud or rowdy. Cabin is close to the beach and town. Overall I would stay here again.

Manager Response:
Thanks for the great review! I have re-read the directions and tidied them up. Hope it's much more clear next stay! Thank you for choosing Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals.

Cozy and Cute Cottage

Review by Kimber S.
The cottage was much cuter than the pictures! It was newly painted, artwork was added, and rugs! Perfect size for two, full kitchen was a great bonus. The bed was super comfy. There was live music 2 of the nights at the neighborhood watering hole, that we could walk too! Loved the back deck.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Thanks for the great review and hope we can host again! We have four cabins at this location. all with full kitchens and bath. The night life at the local watering hole has local bands and good times with local craft beers available. Plus it's a quick on to the 101 for your next Humboldt adventure!

Cute Place!

Review by shannon n.
This cabin was very cute, clean and comfortable. It was just like the picture. When we arrived the fireplace/heater was running, the cabin was toasty warm and cozy. There was local coffee and yummy cookies left for us. The weather was stormy this weekend on the coast but it was ok we just holed up in this adorable little cabin!

A Great Night!

Review by Theresa V.
Perfect place to lay your head while traveling through the redwoods! We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the local tavern just steps from the front door. Would definitely recommend! The local coffee and delicious cookies were a wonderful touch as were the soaps in the bathroom.

Cozy stop

Clean, right next to a bar (there are pros and cons to that but it was perfect for us!), close to the highway.

Amazing experience!

Review by Benjamin M.
Strawberry Creek did an amazing job to make our experience the best it could be as we visited the Nothern Redwoods. I would recommend this retreat to anybody interested in visiting the area. Great job!

Manager Response:
Great review for Strawberry Creek Retreat! Thank you so much and we hope you will return to visit us again!

A good launching pad.

Review by
Strawberry Creek Rental is a clean place, very simple and functional. The back patio is nice. Otherwise their is not much charm to the place. If you are just looking for a place to eat and sleep so you can spend your days out and about this is a good place. The location is great, Clam Beach right down the street is fantastic and you are right between the 2 redwood forests. If you are looking for a cozy place to hunker down and read, this is not your place. Folks at the bar are super friendly and offer a nice local flavor. The music was great. It wasn't super loud but if you want super quiet than I don't recommend but if you are wanting local flavor and fun than this place is great. Also, the bed is not the most comfortable.
3 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Thank you for your recent stay at the Strawberry Creek Retreat. This cozy little place is definitely for those intended on being out and about, as the location itself is quite convenient. The price is set as such, due to the proximity of the bar and the rental being more of a fly-by-night type of place. We have over 100 vacation homes in the area for those wishing privacy and the comport and relaxation of a home atmosphere. As for the local flavor and live music, the tavern has drawn quite a following and can be quite a fun place to stop by. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and please do consider one of our many other homes for a little R & R.

What a Suprise!

Review by Richard Y.
This was a last minute trip to the coast, thought we would try AirB&B. This place was great! Just the basics, but clean comfortable and close to where we wanted to be for the night.
5 out of 5 stars


Review by
This was my first Airbnb stay. For the price, it was acceptable. Knowing that there is a bar right next to the cabin ahead of time was beneficial; as I packed my earplugs! It was a great location to the beach and provided closer proximity to Redwood State and National Parks than staying further south. The room was recently remodeled and seemed that some more minor work was needed to be completed. All was very clean.

Manager Response:
Thank you for the review of the Strawberry Creek Retreat. This cabin is definitely in a great location for exploring and being close to Redwood State and National Parks, and at very reasonable price. Thank you for being observant that it is next to a bar and being prepared. Your feedback was greatly appreciated. Yes, this unit was recently remodeled, and we are still working on some final touches in between guests as we can get in there. Thank you for staying with us and we do hope you will stay with us again on your nest trip to the north coast.
