The "barndominium" tiny house is a cozy, welcoming & unique space. As newspaper publishers, your hosts love to give guests the "inside scoop" to the area. Great stop to explore the redwoods and hiking. Tiny wedding packages in our plant-filled atrium also available. (Recently named by Condé Nast as one of the top 10 Airbnbs in the world for microweddings!) Price includes 10% bed tax.Check us out on the 'gram!

The space
Our 420 sq. ft. barndominum — recently converted from a historic barn — is cozy and unique. Its location is prime; park your car behind the barn and enjoy the best of Ferndale at your doorstep by foot while still enjoying country views and unobstructed views to the rear of the property. The location is just steps away from Ferndale restaurants, shops and hiking trails. It's a great space to nestle into, especially during winter months next to the fireplace. Or, fling open our wood french doors in the spring and summer and take in the half-acre field that adjoins a flowing Francis Creek.

A combo living room/kitchen are downstairs; a bedroom with open bath/shower upstairs. Note the bath/shower are open to the bedroom and the bedroom has no door. (The toilet room has a door.) The clawfoot tub/shower combo (no grab bar/deep tub to step into) has a heated towel bar close by. Downstairs and upstairs have electric fireplaces. We also have a heated mattress pad on the upstairs bed with dual controls. An air purifier is also in the upstairs bedroom. The barndominium is insulated; Ferndale winter nights (and summer, when the coastal fog hangs around) can get chilly. At night, our back field trees are lit up by white lights and by day, deer graze right outside the back deck. The space has wi-fi and our smart television offers Netflix, Amazon, etc. Enjoy our already paid for downloads of “The Majestic” and “Outbreak,” both filmed in Ferndale and Guy Fieri’s (yup, he’s from Ferndale) hometown tour of Ferndale in a DDD episode. (We do not offer cable TV.)

We provide a few goodies in our vintage fridge for you, including a couple of “cold ones” for your arrival and English muffins, eggs, jam, yogurt, cereal for a light breakfast. We have different coffee (and lots of making options such as a Nespresso machine, frother, burr grinder, French press, Italian stovetop espresso pot and pour over brewer) and tea options. We also, during nice days, open up the doors to our unique atrium in our back property and invite guests to make themselves a cup of tea and enjoy a sweet treat. You're welcome to talk to our houseplants as well.

Live music is available at several venues just steps from the barndominium as are eateries, a grocery and a liquor store and several great coffee shops.

There are two airbnbs on our large property and our main larger house (Charming Ferndale Victorian) sleeps four.

Our half-acre back garden and light- and plant-filled atrium is available for petite weddings and elopements from spring through October. We offer all-inclusive packages for 20, including two-nights lodging, event planning, atrium rental, flowers, custom cake, plated and served three-course lunch or dinner (curated menu of seasonal and locally-sourced produce, proteins and dairy), officiant, photography, vintage lounge, bar and bartender, and much more. Contact us and we will put you in touch with Catrina @aboveandbeyondcreations for details. The spot was recently named by Condé Nast magazine as one of the top ten airbnbs in the world to hold a microwedding!

Where you’ll be

Ferndale, California, United States

Ferndale is a throwback to a Norman Rockwell America and The Barndominium is a perfect spot to experience the historic and unique Victorian Village. There's plenty to do within the city limits (leave your car keys behind) — shopping, dining, art galleries, well-preserved architecture, a world-class local museum, parades, firemen's games, fun runs, live music, live horse-racing at the Humboldt County Fair and our own repertory theatre — but there's also plenty to do within a short drive. The beach is a 10-minute scenic drive from The Barndominium (no traffic and no parking issues) and features well-maintained BLM trails that deliver you onto, what is most times, a private beach. A trip over historic Fernbridge takes you to the Humboldt Bay Wildlife Refuge (great place to walk the trails, all on flat land, and view wildlife and wetland habitat). Across Hwy 101 from the refuge is the College of the Redwoods botanical garden — another great picnic spot. Just 20 minutes north is the new Redwood Sky Walk. A must see to get a bird's eye view of our beloved redwood trees. The North Coast's inspiring redwoods are a 20-minute drive south and the waterfront town of Eureka is 20 minutes to the north.
