We arrived in Ferndale in late March after a number of long days on the road. The Gingerbread Mansion - like Ferndale - is totally over the top. So just embrace it. Solicitous staff, yummy breakfasts and picture perfect sitting rooms make it the perfect place to relax with a good book. We also had some lovely conversations with other...

Lovely bed, clean bathroom with classy amenities, spotless in all phases. Wi-fi needs help. Full hearty breakfast reminds on of Northern Europe. Polite gracious staff which enjoys pleasing their guests.Quiet sleep mellowed by the sound of raindrops. Beautiful Victorian building. Worth the price.

My first time in a bed and breakfast and this was beautiful! We stayed in the Hideaway Suite since we had the kids & all slept well. Beds were comfortable and room cozy albeit a tad chilly. Breakfast the next morning was made to order, delicious and more than we could eat. I was disappointed that the town was basically...

This is a Victorian house and classic B & B. We arrived very late on a Thursday and were greeted by a very nice young lady that lead us straight to our room, no "check in" required. The rooms are all different, we stayed in the least expensive one, Zaporah, no fireplace or soaking tub. All others have at least...

We loved our stay here for Valentines! Gingerbread Mansion is the nicest, preserved Victorian place we've stayed at. Our room, the Veneto, was beautiful painted, with in-room bathtub. The bed was a king, super comfortable sheets and blanket. Every detail, furniture and decor is is excellent condition - feels very classy. There's a beautiful garden and great hot breakfast. Would...

We had a great couple of nights here - you really do have to embrace the Victoriana - it is so over the top. We were in the Strawberry room which was spacious and very quiet (although the place was only half full when we were there). The furnishings and atmosphere of the place are unique ... we went to...

We stayed in the Strawberry Hill Room. The accommodations and food at this B & B were incredible. The staff treated us more as family than guests. My wife and I look forward to returning again. The Victorian nostalgia was beautifully done and maintained. Afternoon tea and appetizers at 4 pm. A very pleasurable experience.

My wife and I stayed just one night in the Fountain Suite as part of an 11 day road trip down the Oregon and Northern California coast. The Mansion has a great history and is very nicely restored. The staff was fantastic and more than willing to accommodate our every request. I did have a strange experience during the night,...

This historic inn has been around for quite a while, so it has an interesting history. It was a hospital at one time! The home has been restored and maintained beautifully, with gleaming old wood and elegant appointments throughout. The inn is welcoming and cozy, with 2 downstairs fireplaces. Our room was comfortable, beautiful and quiet. Happy hour was quite...
