The Creekside Commons

A creative and performance retreat center

Creekside Commons is a beautiful six-acre retreat center in the heart of the redwoods. Our goals include eliminating boundaries of all kinds, pursuing common goals whenever possible and the fundamental healing and creative aspects of the arts.

As a retreat center we provide spaces for both residential and non-residential collaborative artistic experiences. We are also happy to host the occasional family reunion or wedding.

Our Retreat Center

Our retreat center includes three residential spaces (the cottage, the bungalow and the cabin); a large indoor studio for use as a creative workspace and/or performance space; a greenhouse performance space; an outdoor gathering space and plenty of opportunities for solitude.

The Cottage

2 – 4 Guests

The Bungalow

2 – 4 Guests

The Cabin

Explore Humboldt

There is so much to do and see within a short drive of the Creekside Commons. Take a day trip to one of our many breathtaking beaches, hike Fern Canyon, explore Old Town Eureka and the Arcata Plaza, or perhaps jaunt on down the coast to the quaint victorian village of Ferndale.


Guest Reviews

Cada – December 2018

“I love this spot. Its deliciously quiet in this sweet little cottage tucked up under the edge of the redwoods. The location is really lovely and I could feel and see the love and care that the various inhabitants of this wee community are giving to the land they share. I wanted to stay longer but it was a busy work time for me and this was a working weekend so I was gone during the days. I fantasize about staying here for a pure personal retreat some time and enjoying the place in a more leisurely manner.”
