The finest inns in the area, this 1880s mansion is comprised of four restored Victorian buildings. The Hotel Carter houses 23 rooms and the amazing Restaurant 301, a mainstay in the Eureka dining scene.
The Carter House itself is considered the stalwart of the property, with five gorgeous Victorian style rooms, an open parlor and a kitchen, making this a fine choice for extended families. The hotel also manages three cottage properties of varying size.
Though room sizes and styles differ–some offering jacuzzi tubs or fireplaces, and others simply a cozy respite from the chilly air–all quarters reflect the hues of fog, with comfortable bedding, free wifi, and modern amenities like flat-screen TVs and DVD players.
Guests receive a complimentary afternoon wine and cheese service, and breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant, Restaurant 301.
The signature dining room lures diners from across the state. Restaurant 301 relies on a strict farm-to-table policy, sourcing much of its produce from the onsite garden, and rotating the offerings with the seasons. The marrow custard and wild mushroom tart, Wagyu brisket bolognese, and fresh oysters are the way to go. Or splurge on the five-course tasting menu highlighting of the moment seasonal gems.
