The Lady Anne is a Victorian inn in the English tradition. It is a Queen Anne style mansion built in 1888 and occupies a place of prestige on a hill overlooking Humboldt Bay. It is conveniently located only blocks from Humboldt State University and the downtown plaza. You can walk to old growth redwoods, the famed Arcata Marsh, Wildberries Market and Ramone’s Bakery.

The Lady Anne is a welcomed respite from a hurried world. You are encouraged to sit on the glass veranda, the gazebo, or sit in the garden with a cup of tea and a good book. Upon entering the restored mansion, you are transported into the elegance and quiet of the Victorian era. Sam and Sharon have an extensive history with Humboldt county, Arcata, and Humboldt State University. Both have taught at the university and Sam was mayor of Arcata.
