The Carter House Inns
As an experienced builder, he found an ideal piece of land just blocks away from Humboldt Bay Harbor to construct this dream home for his family. Amidst many Eureka Victorians, the Carter House was completed in 1982, where it now provides hotel lodging for guests to Humboldt County and stands just a block away from another famous Newsom Brother design – the historic Carson Mansion.
Co-owner and founder of Carter House Inns, Christi Carter, resides near Carter House Inns where she helps tend to the business and enjoys the beautiful scenery of Old Town Eureka. Today, Mark and his wife, commute between his hometown of Eureka and the beautiful Calistoga, located in the Napa Valley region of California. Down in Calistoga, the Carters operate a joint venture with wine legend, Nils Venge known as Envy Wines. Here, they produce Envy Wines as well as many wines under their original label, Carter Cellars, which has been in operation since 1998.
As avid oenophiles, it’s no wonder that their Restaurant 301 has been given the prestigious Grand Award from Wine Spectator each year since. Today, the restaurant’s wine list has over 3,600 wines, including 9 Carter Cellars Cabernet Sauvignons that have been awarded a perfect 100-points by wine critics including Robert Parker.
