... be rotting and the village falling apart. In the end, Tractus' strong words managed to convince my other self. When my friend reported back to me, I hugged him so hard, he could hardly breathe. I realized how brave he was. With those happy thoughts, we returned to our original time. Which means that we should be going too! Let's ...

Riding through these forests, we both agreed was a spiritual experience, as we truly felt part of nature, and just how strong and majestic God must be to be able to design such awesome beauty. For 29.6 miles silence, except for Crush making his presence known, we together shared something we most certainly will always cherish.
We ended the day by settling in, here in Eureka. And, last evening we challenged a couple of guys in ...

I was welcomed by Winslow & family with hugs & a home cooked meal. Before dinner, Winslow, Fiona & I took a walk in their "backyard", which is a redwood forested area. It was quiet & cold & peaceful. Across the street was Humboldt State University & we walked around much of the campus. From the 4th story of one building, there was a great view of the Eureka ...
I had to stay at a KOA as there wasn't any tent camping nearby but a hot tub, ice cream & a movie was not a bad deal.

Historical Traveler Reviews Victorian Inn Ferndale
Nicest Inn in Ferndale! Their hospitality was unbelievable! We arrived at this Inn late one night after we realized the Inn we had reservations at was closed. We were extremely stressed out and wondering where we were going to stay after our five hour drive from San Francisco. The owners introduce themselves, without hesitation, and were able to set us up in the room overlooking Main Street with a fireplace. We stayed here two nights and were highly impressed with the breakfast and the afternoon wine and cheese. They were very knowledgeable about the area and referred us to some excellent restaurants in the area and told us about the very scenic Lost Coast drive. We would definitely recommend this to all tourists! Only a short drive to the Humbolt Redwoods State Park and the Avenue of the Giants. Quaint Inn in adorable Victorian town with superb customer service!
My husband and I were on 5 day a trip to the "lost coast" and redwoods. Ferndale was our last destination, Monday.
A GREAT PLACE TO STAY
We have stayed at the Victorian Inn a number of times and each time
we enjoy it a little bit more. Our rooms are alway clean and every detail is taken care of. The Innkeepers always make us feel like we are welcome friends. We would recommend this inn as a very special
place to stay if you are in this area.
We recently spent a night at the Victorian. We were looking for someplace near the national parks and forests. If you're into B&B's and quaint historic inns, you'll like this place. Not me. The large ornate building sits on the main road in a downtown area. We should have known right off the bat that something was "different" here when we were told there was no off-street parking. "Just park along the curb or across at the gas station," we were told. After checking in at the "reception" desk (which doubles as a jewelry store), we carried our own bags up a set of stairs into a cold dark hallway. The floors are creaky, the trim is dark, and the ceilings are high. The room was very clean, but there was no TV. Although it was a cool night, there was no air conditioning or ceiling fan. A sign in the room said that we "share" hot water with other guests, and we apparently share the "party line" phone. Another sign warns guests about a loud siren from the local fire house. This is the call for the volunteer firefighters. Thankfully, it did not set off during the night. The "lounge" is another dark, cold area with no TV, not comfortable seating, and a few board games. Everything in town closes at dusk, except for the restaurant and bar at the hotel.
My parents and I stayed at the Victorian Inn July 9th in the Viola McBride room. The room with it's pastel blue and cream interior made us feel as if we were in an authentic Victorian bedroom. We met the owners of the inn during the daily wine, cheese, and sausage meeting by the fireplace and found them very friendly and hospitable. They offered to help us find a restaurant in the area by calling for a reservation and told us about their experience during the making of The Majestic. The Jim Carrey film was shot almost entirely in Ferndale. We ended up dining at Curleys, the onsite restaurant where we had a lovely dinner. There is also a nice jewelry store on the premises with lots of unique and beautiful pieces. Had I had a little more disposable income during this trip I probably would have bought something.
Loud and Not Peaceful!
My husband and I checked into the Victorian Inn, hoping to find a place to relax. Unfortunately, outside the rooms is a loud, high-pitched kitchen exhaust fan. We immediately informed the inn keeper and was told it would go off at 9:30 pm. It didn't turn off until 10:21 pm. As far as we are concerned, the room was inhabitable until the fan was turned off. We tried to mask the sound with the ceiling fan and music, but no luck. If you choose to stay here, I would specifically ask if they have done something about their noise problem. The inn keepers were uninterested and unresponsive in solving their noise issue.
A great treat
We had the pleasure of staying here in the middle of a rainstorm. I had been wanting to come to Ferndale for years, and this was the first chance we had.
We actually had booked a room nearby, but then decided we wanted to stay in town, and I am so glad we did.
Lowell was great. We wandered in out of the rain and he couldn't have been nicer. He gave us a great room and lots of info on the area, and his wife and I had a lovely chat about quilting
The room was really clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very large.
There is a parlor/room with cookies, cocoa, tea, and FREE internet, as well as books and a few games and it is available all the time.
It was a wonderful inn and we look forward to staying there again.
I had a most wonderful time at the Victorian Inn. Although it has been a couple years since my stay, I still remember one of the greatest weekends I have ever had. The room was rustic, and the decor was fantastic. I still remember the down filled comforter. The food in the returante was fantastic, and the service was great! We then finished our night in the lounge, where we met some of the greatest people. I would highly recomend this place for a weekend get away.
