Eureka is a few hours drive west from Redding, but it might as well be another country in terms of climate and culture. So it’s always such a welcome break to get away to the Northcoast once in a while. We booked a night at the Carter House Inns the other day, and I’m posting some images. Below, the main building that houses the Hotel Carter and the Restaurant 301.
Seen above are other buildings that are part of the property. They were doing some painting that day, hence the dropcloths on the left. I imagine these harborfront Victorians take a lot of maintenance. The building on the right was designed by the same architects who designed the landmark Carson Mansion, which is just a short walk north.
Above, the common area of the Bell. There is also a full kitchen.
Breakfast at the Restaurant 301 is included, as below.
The lovely Karry contemplates breakfast inside the very pleasurable 301.
The story of the Carter House is very interesting. You can book your visit online as we did, and the service was flawless. It’s pleasing to know that this elegant and artistic getaway is so nearby to Really Redding.
