The frontier Inn, built in the gold rush era of 1854, was a labor of love dedicated to a cherished fiancée. It was the Shaw family home for more than 100 years and opened briefly as an Inn in 1860. It has always been a place of gracious surroundings and hospitality.


It remains the oldest house in Ferndale and functions as a bed and breakfast under the Shaw House Inn name. It still features the marble fireplace that Isabella Shaw, Seth's bride, chose from Gump's department store in San Francisco.



When you stay at Victorian Inn in Ferndale, you’ll enjoy spacious rooms, front desk service, private baths in all rooms, contactless check-in for late arrivals, comfortable amenities, and daily delicious morsels provided as a Grab & Go breakfast offering – all included with your stay. Original sixteen-foot ceilings and carved redwood details retain the hotel’s classic Victorian charm with added modern necessities like free Wifi, flat screen TVs and a 24-hour hot tea and coffee station.
