The Shell Cottage is a cute little one-bedroom home right on a canal in King Salmon, a fichining village just south of Eureka. The Master bedroom has a queen bed, little sitting area and access the back yard and canal. The living room features a large flat screen TV with cable an DVD, a cozy sitting area with queen pull-out couch, and fresh nautical charm. The dining area seats 4, there’s also a picnic table in front yard for some outdoor dining. The bathroom is spacious and features a large jetted tub with shower. There also gas barbecue in the back yard and seating by the dock and canal (See Photos).

A family of river otters frequent the area, as do sea lions and sea birds of all types. Great fishing on the jetties on either side of the beach that are within walking distance.

Shell Cottage is located across the street from Johnny's Marina and RV Park (with long term tenants in trailers as well) where you can slip your boat overnight or have extra guests stay in the RV campground with full hook-ups. Local dining is available with walking distance at famous local restaurant Gil's and also the Boathouse.

Things nearby to do include the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge (which experienced kayakers can reach by bay) the Avenue of the Giants, Sequoia Park and Zoo, Bear River and Blue Lake Casinos, Old Town Eureka, Woodley Island, and much more. A little further away we have Prairie Creek State Park (where Return of the Jedi was filmed) and Fern Canyon (where Jurassic Park was filmed). Do not forget about Humboldt Lagoons for kayaking, shelling, fishing, and swimming and Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Samoa Dunes and Samoa Cookhouse.

Eureka itself is just a few miles away with malls, Costco, and theaters and many other things you may need. The thriving arts communities in Victorian Ferndale, Arcata, and Eureka have much to offer both day and night including live shows, art exhibits, and community events. Del Arte in Blue Lake is always offering wonderful, innovative shows as well as Mad River Brewer tasting room, one of the many fine breweries in Humboldt County. Many of those same communities have Arts Alive nights one night per month. Plenty to do - come to the Shell Cottage and enjoy all we have to offer!

Any 30 day booking will be charged double the cleaning fee. If it is not automatically added in your booking, we will add the charge for you. We do this because we come in mid-stay and change your linens and do some light cleaning!

    Tom S from Forest Grove, OR recommends this vacation rental

    Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals is an amazingly professional group. From the welcome email, with all for the information you could need, to the well cared for property, to the great area guide on the app, to the check out info, this is a great group to rent from.

    The shell cottage was perfect for my wife and I. A short walk to the dunes and beach was great for our stay. The selection of books and movies was a nice surprise for a stormy day. The area was quiet and we felt safe at all times. The area might look a little rough when you first drive up but everyone was friendly and gave us pointers for the area. Remember you are behind the Redwood Curtain, things are laid back.

    We are looking forward to renting this property again in 2018!!! Thanks for making our quick get a way from Oregon very relaxing and fun!

    We had stayed at this lovely hideaway during the summer and couldn't wait to return. It is such a lovely area and brings us close to Humboldt state where my son attends college. The rental is always clean an comfortable and inviting with an atmosphere of peace and quiet. We will return again and again.

    jane s from london, london recommends this vacation rental

    She'll Cottage is a very comfortable cottage, with enclosed garden and dock. It is very well maintained and has a well equipped kitchen. We stayed here because we brought our kayak and could launch from the dock and paddle around the lagoon. I probably wouldn't stay here if I didn't have one. The area is a little sketchy, and not particularly attractive. Good fish n chips around the corner.

    • Manager Responded on 10/15/2017

      Thanks for taking time to leave a review of Shell Cottage. We are happy you enjoyed your time there, as have many others! It's perfect as a launching pad for kayaks, as well as those just looking for a serene stay near the water. We've never had any issues with the area, indeed, many guests at Shell Cottage are return visitors. We hope to include you on that list, and would love to have you back to Shell Cottage soon!

    We had our corgi with us so this fenced in little gem was perfect. The kitchen has well stocked cupboards (not food items) and I probably could have make a Thanksgiving dinner. We liked the location being outside of town. I would say it would be small for more than 2 people but we were very comfortable.

    • Manager Responded on 9/24/2017

      So happy to hear that Shell Cottage was a good fit for you! The kitchen is full size, perfect for making dinner and a large dining room table for eating in. It's perfect for pets, as the yard is completely contained. It is quite a sweet little house with chairs out back, off the dock, to watch the birds at sunset. What a relaxing way to spend an evening. Thanks again for leaving a review of Shell Cottage, please come back soon and visit Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals when planning another excursion to the North Coast!

    Everything about our little weeks vacation. We found the cottage lovely, and in good order. I'd like to say that Shell Cottage is listed as sleeping 4, but in reality, only has room for one couple. The pull out sofa bed, under the most extreme conditions, could be used to sleep 2, but there would be no room left for ANYONE to walk into the kitchen or living room with the sofa bed open. The bathroom is small for two people, and believe it would be unmanageable for four people.

    • Manager Responded on 8/24/2017

      Thank you for leaving a review for Shell Cottage, and for leaving feedback, which is important to us. We haven't had any complaints concerning the size of Shell Cottage for four guests in the past, but your opinion is definitely taken to heart, and we will discuss if other guests hasvethe same feedback.

    We absolutely loved our stay at the Shell Cottage and have already booked our second trip. The cottage itself is comfortable, charming, well stocked, roomy and whimsical. The deck outside was our favorite hangout and very private as there was no one in the houses on either side. We loved it so much we started looking at properties for sale in King Salmon. It was a delight.

    The house is like new and and functions wonderfully. We have stayed there before and probably will again. We have had a couple of incidences of things being stolen but with Eureka history of homeless that's probably not unusual and partly out fault for not locking things down well. That's not the properties doing. The part we really enjoyed was its proximity to Gills Seaford Restrauant. We had a great visit with relatives and they toured us to things like Arcata's Oyster Fest.

    • Manager Responded on 6/27/2017

      We're so glad you love Shell Cottage! Unfortunately we cannot control all the variables of our guests stay, but we try very hard to have happy guests. If you bring bicycles with you during your stay, there is a foyer in which they can be locked up overnight. The property is very unique, with it's own dock and access to the water. Gil's Seafood Restaurant is a local gem, we're glad you enjoyed it too!Hope to have you back soon! Thank you for choosing Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals,we have 100+ properties to choose from, so please take a look when planning your next stay!

    My wife and I and our Golden Retriever spent two nights at the Shell Cottage on our way home after a week in the Applegate Valley in Oregon. It was the perfect stopping off spot. The cottage is well appointed, clean and very comfortable. Being only a half block from the bay, we enjoyed collecting shells along the beach and exploring the area. A short drive takes you to Ferndale where we had a great lunch at the old hotel and wandered around town. Fireman's Park is also a pleasant area to relax in. The neighborhood is quite eclectic which adds to the charm of the area. We wouldn't hesitate to schedule a return visit.

    The cottage was very clean and cute...appeared newly painted and fresh. Bring your own shampoo and toiletries. There's an old seaside diner within walking distance of the cottage that served a great, reasonable breakfast. Lots of whaling memorabilia. Also had Mimosas and Bloody Mary's. The cottage is across the street from a trailer park and not in the fanciest of areas. The purple-bearded neighbor was very friendly, but a little scary at first. By the middle of our stay, we felt very comfortable in that location, as the neighbors were nice. It poured rain the entire time we were in Eureka, so we didn't get an opportunity to enjoy the dock or outdoor space. It does have a nice BBQ area in the backyard.

    We really *loved* our stay at shell cottage. It was the perfect place for us and our dogs while we were in the area working and enjoying a few hikes on beaches. The house itself is great - very neat and sweet. I *adore* the rowboat themed art and coffee table. And the front and back fenced yards were awesome for the dogs, as well as the proximity of the beach. The first morning there the water was chock full of seals and loons, but I guess that was sort of special because every other day there were generally just a few. The neighbors are mostly quiet and the location is quiet, but we did have some encounters with neighbors that were a bit strange and not necessarily friendly. What I said to friends was - "If you want to see what it's like to live in a marina/RV/trailer park - but in the comfort of a cute cottage - this is perfect for you!" If we get the same work gig, we may be back!

    A clean and nice cottage was advertised. We got just that with Shell Cottage. A little snag when we arrived was quickly ironed out by Samantha of Redcoast Vacation Rentals and our stay was worry free after that.

    If you are looking for a cottage that will allow your dog to stay, a little quite and great service from a rental agency- this is your ticket!

    My Husband and I stayed in Shell Cottage for two weeks with our golden retriever, and we all felt right at home as soon as we walked in the door. The cottage was better than advertised with clean, updated amenities, and a very comfortable bed. The location was also as advertised so potential vacationers should not be surprised that the neighborhood does not offer beautiful views. However the beach right across the street was great and the views from there were beautiful. The enclosed yard was very secure and we did enjoy sitting on the sunny back deck. The management staff were all wonderful to work with from beginning to end and the neighbors we met were all friendly and helpful. We were so thrilled to find such a comfortable conveniently located place where we could bring our dog, that we have already booked another stay. We travel often to Humboldt County to visit relatives and will try to schedule our future trips when the cottage is available.

    a guest from San Marcos, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We really enjoyed this rental. The little house has been completely remodeled in a Beach theme. The white and blue outside reminds you of New England. The yards front and back have also been completely redone. There is grass front and back which is great if you bring your pooch. Also VERY secure with lock on gate,front and back doors of house and a security system. NOTE it is in an area with a number of "non remodeled" homes which I believe were built in the 50's. And across the street is a trailer park. This neighborhood is fishing/working class. But never did I feel unsafe. Would I walk around at 2am by myself? no, but wouldnt dare do that in downtown Eureka and especially NOT in Arcata!! If you go dont forget to go for breakfast or lunch to Gils! Would definately stay again - NOTE no washer or dryer so if you stay a long time you need to find arrangements.

    This was the first time my husband and I stayed in a vacation rental. We didn't know what to expect, actually. OMG, I wish I were still in that cottage! Leaving it was the hardest thing I've done. Our two little dogs have never been more content, and neither have I. Being able to walk to the beach every day, sitting and relaxing in the lovely yard, minutes away from my daughter and her family...what more could anyone ask for? Oh yes, mustn't forget the jacuzzi bath. So relaxing at the end of the day!

    • Manager Responded on 7/29/2014

      This is a great spot for pet owners. It is very secure and unless your dog has grown opposable thumbs, they really can't get out which leaves the owner with peace of mind while relaxing in the jacuzzi tub! We hope you stay at Shell cottage again with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals the next time you come to visit family!

    We just loved Shell Cottage! We are a family of 4 with 2 teenaged kids. This was our first VRBO experience and will not be our last. Shell Cottage was exactly as described. We enjoyed all Redwood National and State Parks and Beaches from this little house in King Salmon: Trinity State Beach, Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, Fern Canyon and the Coastal trail (ran into a herd of 30 elk on our hike!), a hike into the Headwaters Preserve out of Fortuna, dinner at the Samoa Cookhouse the Humbolt Nature Center and a drive through the Avenue of the Giants, Humbolt Redwoods State Park on the way home. The neighborhood was a mix of just regular folks and all very friendly. We took a walk on the beach near the house and spotted the 2 otters we were told about! Thank you for a very nice get away!

      The dock for the kayak is the best! We hope to see you again! As for the area, our neighbors are the best and are real watchdogs for the neighborhood. They have rescued pets, put out our trash for collection, and called when they noticed the lock on the front gate missing. And they are an excellent source of info for the area.

    This place is great - location was good near a beach for walking our dog and the house was spotless and neat. This is the FIRST place when I inquired if the yard was FULLY enclosed, it actually IS! In the past when I've looked for vacation rentals, they always say this and it never is fully enclosed. No holes or anything for our little dog to get out. We were especially happy about that feature. Yes, it is across the street from a trailer park but we never felt odd about it at all. People there were friendly and waved to us and said HI every day. Didn't bother us in the slightest. We liked the funkiness of the neighborhood - it aded extra charm. A couple things I would recommend to the owner: 1)clean the yards up - get rid of dead plants and all the weeds growing in the back patio. It would really help the overall appearance of the place. 2)make the TV/DVD, etc. easier to work or give detailed instructions, 3) let people know more about the alarm and how it works. When we left, we were afriad to leave because it beeped so long after you set it. We got used to it though.
    These are minor things but thought we'd mention them for our next visit.

    • Manager Responded on 9/30/2013

      Instructions for DVD/TV: done. Added info about alarm: done. Tidied up yard: done. Thanks for that feedback! We love our neighbors in the trailer park.

    Shell Cottage is such a nice little gem, albeit the village of King Salmon is not exactly an ideal vacation destination unless you are a serious fisherman. Shell Cottage has a dock on canal and tides change water level drastically. We have stayed here both last year and this year and would love to return when we are working nearby. The cottage is PERFECT for travelling with your pets: fully fenced & very secure yard; BBQ area; tiled floor; 1/2 block from dog friendly beach on Humboldt Bay. Cottage has been remodeled, decorated in beach theme, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of towels & linens. It is located directly across the street from RV & Trailer Park but there was no problem with neighbors and most were friendly and helpful - like Steinbeck's colorful characters in Cannery Row! Gil's Restaurant is just a few blocks away and offers great sole, cod, and Dungeness crab dishes. Eureka is just a few miles north; a few miles south is Loleta Cheese Factory, Loleta Bakery (amazing!), and very dog friendly beach at Table Bluff. We love Shell Cottage and are always disappointed when it is booked and we have to stay at the Best Western. Looking forward to our next visit!

    • Manager Responded on 6/23/2013

      Agreed - it is a great cottage for people really into fishing or kayaking and perfect for running your dog on the beach a half a block away but definitely not for everyone. I really enjoy being there myself and we have quite a few return guests. The fact that King Salmon is a cross between a working town with some vacationers makes it appealing to many. Looking forward to having you back a third time and more to the Shell Cottage managed by Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals or one of our other 40 plus homes in the area, all the way up to Crescent City!

    This cute little cottage was in a great location for Redwoods explorers. Perfect if you have a dog. Beach access within view & short drive to Eureka for local food at the Co-op. The only trouble we had was figuring out the gate lock & lock box. Took a few tries, but needless to say the place is very secure :). I would go back to this place.

    • Manager Responded on 3/23/2013

      Great to hear! Yes, I love the beaches there! I will add more details to the instructions so that the locks are not an issue for you. Hope to see you again then at the Shell Cottage with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals.

    a guest from Redwood Valley, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Overall our stay was nice, once the kinks were resolved: heater took an hour to come on & it was 50 degrees in the house when we arrived; and towels & wash cloths not stocked. Outdoor lighting was also an issue-there are steps and a locked gate with no lighting to help you see to do the combo, so be prepared. AND, tub is really one person only unless you are a couple of hobbits. BUT, don't let these things discourage is quiet and off the beaten path with a lovely backyard and a 2 minute walk to the Humboldt Bay beach and Gil's by the Bay restaurant (breakfast & lunch). Plus only a 2 mile drive into Eureka. Perfect for our getaway and would stay with them again. Happy Travels!

    • Manager Responded on 2/7/2013

      Thank you so much for your detailed feedback and we are glad you enjoyed the Shell Cottage and would return. Your point about the lighting by the gate lock is well taken and we will put a light there. This is a new heater so we have brought out the company who installed it to repair it after hearing from you. Towels and wash cloths were there but you needed more and we got those for you right away. And, yes, really a one person tub. Really glad you enjoyed the getaway and hope to see you again with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals!

    a guest from American canyon, Ca recommends this vacation rental

    We visited Shell Cottage in King Salmon for the 4 day Thanksgiving break. We had a wonderful time. The cottage was in excellent condition - we were convinced we were the first guests to stay there since the remodel. Linens, kitchen supplies and wifi were all avaialable. The neighborhood was not exactly Beverly Hills, but the home itself was somewhat private with a completely fenced in yard front and back.

    Four adults (two sleeping on the sofa sleeper) and dogs were all very comfortable.

    Thank you!

    • Manager Responded on 11/27/2012

      Glad you enjoyed it. We have had about 10 different rentals previous to your stay so yes, you are right, it is a relatively new rental. We work hard to keep it in excellent condition and great guests like yourselves who are respectful of the home reallly help! Yes, neighborhood is definitely mixed in terms of socioeconomics but people there have been really nice and helpful to all our guests. There are people in RV's and people in brand new 2 story ocean view homes right next to each other. There are third generation fishing families and Coast Guard pilots on the block. We feel it makes it fun.

    steve s from cornville, az. recommends this vacation rental

    We had a few things that could be better. the toilet is to small and kept running because the flapper was worn out! And my wife has C.O.P.D. The freshly painted house was nice, but we had to air it out for a couple of days. It would be nice if there was some kind of cover in the back for Smoking outside or just to enjoy the rain without getting wet!!

    • Manager Responded on 11/25/2012

      I am glad that you liked the Shell Cottage and would recommend it to others. In regards to your comments, yes, we are going to cover park of the back deck. It will be done during the next few months. In regards to the toilet, it is works properly. The water that you heard when you were in the bathroom is the water entering the water heater :). Finally, the house was almost completely redone inside with the work finishing up in late August and I have not noticed the smell of fresh paint in quite sometime but I could understand someone who has a strong allergy to it definitely noticing.
