The Shaw House
The Shaw House Inn is an historic bed and breakfast, located in the pristine Victorian Village of Ferndale. This beautiful eight-room inn, with living quarters, is nestled in the giant coastal redwood region of northern California.
Perfectly situated, the Shaw House Inn enjoys the luxury of both the cool majestic Redwood Forests along with the fresh ocean breezes creating an ideal lifestyle and setting for guests.
Forbes named the destination area of Ferndale as one of America’s prettiest towns. This piece of paradise is known for its well-maintained and historical downtown, to its short drive to the dramatic and longest stretch of coastline in the continental U.S. Ferndale is a magical setting that appeals to residents and tourists alike.
Shaw House Inn is the oldest structure in Ferndale, dating back to 1854, the oldest Bed and Breakfast in California, and one of the most notable properties in this nearly fairy tale like setting. Each of the eight well-appointed guest rooms is handsomely furnished with period antiques, plush fabrics, and most with private bathrooms.
The nearly park-like setting upon which the Shaw House Inn sits, is shaded by 25 varietals of trees most of which are over one hundred years old. This mature landscaping makes for a picturesque backdrop for this 19th century Bed and Breakfast Inn.
This charming property is within walking distance to the local restaurants and shops along Main Street, where many gatherings are also held throughout the year. The village is home to many events and festivals: The Humboldt County Fair, Ferndale Concours d’Elegance car competition, Bargain Lovers' Weekend, the Christmas Lighted Tractor Parade to name but just a few.
This property is for the astute buyer with marketing and media skills.
