This place has the Victorian look and vibe, but don't think it is just for those who like that decor. It is not at all stiff and stuffy. The bed and bathroom are purely modern luxury, and clean. Loved it. The pillows were so nice and the bed so comfy. I wish my pillows at home were as nice. We... More

Absolutely incredible visit to Ferndale and a stay at the Victorian Inn. If you want to take a step back in time and get away from the hustle and bustle of life in the 21rst Century this is the place! Unsurpassed hospitality and I have not stayed in a more comfortable hotel. Not to mention that it's 120 years old... More

I visited Ferndale because the 1979 movie Salem's Lot was filmed here. This hotel features a few times in the movie and is within walking distance of all the other filming locations. The owners take the time to interact individually with their guests to ensure they are comfortable and satisfied and the inn itself is a fantastic piece of Victorian... More

Room was quaint and beautifully decorated.Bathroom large and spotless. Our meals in the VI restaurant were great and the service was excellent. The building is restored and the Victorian decorations nice.There is a nice lounge on the second floor to enjoy tea.

Amazing historic property. The staff goes out of their way to ensure your stay is incredible. From the custom flowers in our room to the delicious meals in the dining room. It was truly a romantic getaway!

Zachary, our son, works at the Victorian Inn so I could be just a little bit biased. For Christmas he gave his father and me a $100 gift certificate for the Victorian Inn. We redeemed it on a Thursday night in late January 2015. I had only been there once before under different management 20 years prior and was not... More

We stayed just one night at the beautiful Victorian Parlor room. My favorite color is red and this room was perfect for this romantic weekend getaway with my wife. Checking in was quick and the front desk person was very friendly and helpful making the start of this experience already wonderful. The room in the picture looks a little bigger... More

So we never actually got the chance to stay here so it might be excellent in many ways. Zachary at the front desk seemed like a really nice guy. So what happened was that we stayed at The Gingerbread House the night before, also a Victorian style B&B in Ferndale, it was a great stay, for our second night we... More

VictorianVillager, Owner at Victorian Inn, responded to this review

As the reviewer has stated, this was an unfortunate incident, and quite unusual. There are, however, other factors which I believe might help others to better understand the situation.The original booking was made through an on-line travel agency (OTA) over which we have no control. Any and all changes to the reservation, payment or refunds must be made through the... More

I am absolutely astounded by this place, it's that good. The owners, (Jenny and Lowell) the reception staff (Zachary), the restaurant servers (Amy and Deborah) are, simply put, as good as it gets, Each and every one of them went WAY out of their way to make sure our stay was a fantastic, over-the-top, memorable one. They made sure everything... More

This was a cozy and great place to stay. The room were comfortable and the food was wonderful. Staff was courteous and accommodating. I would stay here again . It was Christmas time and the view down main street from our corner room was amazing.
