This surreal, boutique inn looks like it could be straight from The Hobbit, with fantastical touches that help guests commune with nature. Originally built in the 1920s, the Front Porch has been lovingly restored with reclaimed old-growth redwood, river rocks and a wild variety of live plants. Each of its ten rooms has a kitchenette stocked with breakfast fixings and plenty of amenities. But it’s the Hidden Bath experience – a serenity-inducing soak in a copper, deep soaking tub surrounded by living fern walls – that gets rave reviews. And it’s close to Arcata’s Plaza, shops and restaurants.
