“located at Carter House Inn”
The Carter House Inn is a hotel in Old Town Eureka, California. It is known both for housing Restaurant 301 and for being a replica of a Queen Anne style building by Newsom & Newsom, renowned builder architects of many 19th century structures in California.Restaurant 301The Inn's restaurant, Restaurant 301, has a 3800 bottle collection of wine and has frequently been one of less than 90 annual recipients worldwide of the "Grand Award" from Wine Spectator magazine. Reality show star Curtis Stone once served as the head chef.ArchitectureThe building is a replica of an earlier structure originally located in San Francisco. Murphy House was constructed as a large home in 1884 by the builder architects Samuel and Joseph Cather Newsom. These 19th-century Victorian architects also built the Carson Mansion at virtually the same time in Eureka. However, the Murphy home was completely destroyed by the fire resulting from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Mark Carter found the blueprints for the home in an antique store and rebuilt the structure but in Eureka. The building was originally intended to be a private residence but, due to construction cost overruns, it was opened as a bed and breakfast to recoup the losses.
Bright open rooms, canopy beds, free wifi, amazing wine list and the charm of a homey B&B in a small town. The hotel offers a daily complimentary glass of wine between 5 and 6 p.m. and complimentary tea and cookies in the evening. However, don't expect cookie cutter, top notch rooms for what you pay. Eureka is a pretty small town and Carter House Inn is more on the expensive side.
