The Carter House Inns is an enclave of 4 magnificent Victorians perched alongside Humboldt Bay at the gateway to Eureka's historic district. The Carter House Inns and Restaurant 301s (Grand Award from Wine Spectator since 1998) have been welcoming travelers since 1981. Each Inn is distinctively designed and graciously appointed. Guest rooms feature antiques, private baths and luxuriant amenities soothe the soul and delight the senses. Marble fireplace, whirlpools with marine vistas, immense 4-poster beds and generous honor bars hint at the myriad of pleasures. Dinner at Restaurant 301 is truly a celebration of the senses. Our gardens provide herbs and fresh vegetables for the chefs.
The Carter Cottage is the most luxurious property. This turn of the century victorian was renovated by the Carters in 1997. Decorated in bright sunny colors and a simple but gracious style is reminiscent of the Victorian -Colonianl era. The Carter Cottage features a deep marble spa tub, fireplaces in the sleeping and living areas, and a state of the art demonstration kitchen. The cottage is spacious, light and airy, and no imaginable amenity has been overlooked. The Carter Cottage also features an inviting large private deck with a wonderful view of Humboldt Bay.
The luxurious suite includes a whirlpool, fireplace, a plush living area, and orginal artwork. Modeled after a turn of the century Eureka hostelry, the Carter House Victorians were built with historic accuracy during the mid 1980's and offers guests with every imaginable modern day comfort along with all the charms of a warm European-style auberge.
This spacious and sunny one room suite feature a four poster queen bed with a featherbed mattress. Enjoy a relaxing evening by the fireplace or perhaps in the jacuzzi tub.

I took my son, his wife, and their 1 1/2 year old baby for a trip to the ocean. Carter House staff & accommodations made a very pleasant family vacation a reality! The tea and cookies at night was fun. The cuisine was outstanding!

After arriving in Eureka around 8pm after a long day driving from Yosemite NP we pulled into the Carter Inn just by chance and boy am I glad we did! The staff upon arrival were fantastic, they settled us on the couch with a glass of wine and some hors d'oeuvres as they checked us in (they even knocked $80 off the room!). We ate in the restaurant which was lovely, although the portions were a little on the small side (fine for me but my boyfriend was looking for more), but the wine list made up for it. After filling our bellies we floated to our room taking with us the delicious complimentary tea and cookies. The room was well appointed, bed and pillows divine and the shower was great. It was such a nice evening that we ended up staying another night! Would definately recommend the Carter House Inn to anyone looking for a luxurious little respite.

What a wonderful establishment!We booked an upgraded room but when we checked in we were told that a family was staying in our building and would we like a free upgrade to a grand suite!Of course we said yes.We had a lovely suite,were treated royally by all.There was never a problem,everyone was professional yet friendly.The breakfast was wonderful and included in our rate.I didn't think this place was overpriced for us(and we tend toward value).It was a little expensive but I you get what you pay for!!!
