Located behind the office of California's smallest weekly newspaper on Ferndale's historic Main St, the 7-room private quarters in a historic Victorian sleeps 4, has a cozy pub and offers a front row porch to watch the parades pass you by! Prime location! Park your car and leave it. We are steps away from Ferndale’s many restaurants, bars, shops and grocery store. Great hiking starts two blocks away. The redwoods are 30 mins; local beach, 10 mins. Bed tax part of price unlike other listings.

The space
Stop the presses! The Quarters is in the same historic Ferndale Victorian as the office of the 143-year old award-winning Ferndale Enterprise newspaper. (The Victorian, built in 1888, was featured in the 2001 movie "The Majestic" and the 1979 television film "Salem's Lot" as Barlow's Antique Shop.)

Located at the end of historic Main Street (right smack close to America's tallest lighted Xmas tree) The Enterprise office is open weekdays and your 7-room space is located behind the front office and has a separate entrance. Enjoy the Victorian's front porch and watch Ferndale's many parades or grab a cuppa of joe and sit and enjoy the magnificent view of Ferndale's historic hill cemetery. (Also featured in "The Majestic," starring Jim Carey.). Need to stretch your legs? Climb to the top of the cemetery and see an ocean view. Ferndale’s magnificent Russ Park is a five-minute walk away and offers miles of trails to hike.

The Quarters is just steps away from Ferndale's many restaurants, pubs and the town’s grocery store and offers a cozy, eclectic space with a sunny interior, fun vintage furnishings — including an upcycled farmhouse sink — a vintage Western Holly gas cookstove, an original clawfoot bathtub, a dining room "pew" from the local mortuary and a bar constructed from an old redwood welding bench!

Get a good night's sleep on The Quarters queen-size bed. The space also includes a second bedroom off of the common space with original wood tri-fold doors and a new queen bed. The two bedrooms are separated by the common space and they are ten feet apart.

We provide a few goodies in our Smeg fridge for you, including a couple of “cold ones” for your arrival and English muffins, eggs, jam, cereal for a light breakfast. We have different coffee (Keurig/French Press) and tea options and have creamer and honey on hand.

Also on our property is the Ferndale Barndominium, which hosts two guests. You may see guests coming and going from the barndominium, down our shared driveway, and using our half-acre in the rear of our property. The newly-built atrium and our beautiful cottage gardens are available for petite weddings. Consider renting the atrium and our two Airbnb properties for your special day. Our all-inclusive wedding packages are offered by Catrina at Above and Beyond Creations.

Where you’ll be

Ferndale, California, United States

Ferndale is a throwback to a Norman Rockwell America and The Quarters is a perfect spot to experience the historic and unique Victorian Village. There's plenty to do within the city limits and within walking distance — 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 Quarters (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. The North Coast's inspiring redwoods are a 30-minute drive south and the waterfront town of Eureka is 20 minutes to the north.

During your stay

We're available always by phone, text, email or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) if there are any issues. When you're our guest, we stay in a back apartment in the rear of The Quarters. Please note also that the barn (aka The Barndominium) you see in the outside picture of our cottage (set back from The Quarters but sharing a common driveway) was recently converted to a living quarters and is available to rent. So, you might see our other guests coming and going down the driveway etc. If you have a larger group, consider renting both properties!
