I suppose we chose the cheaper rooms, but we had no outlook and the building was noisy at night. The stairs were very steep. As there was a group of us, having access to the lounge was a plus. Breakfast was great, but a dinner in the same restaurant was very poor quality food.

We stayed the end of May 2015 to explore the area and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. Zachary was friendly, welcoming without being stiffly formal and knowledgeable about the area. He offered wonderful suggestions. It was SO nice to have so many options for the hot breakfast included in the room and we dined there for dinner... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a road trip from San Fransisco to Seattle. We picked it based on reviews and we were not disappointed. Ferndale is a charming small well preserved victorian town. The Victorian Inn is the jewel in the crown. Perfectly charming staff, and the buzziest bar in town, a nice restaurant with an old fashioned... More

a great place to stay. The history of the building is great and they have kept so much of the original features. Its like stepping back in time....the entire town is like this. would stay there again, and recommend it to any one.

The Victorian inn is a very pleasant little guesthouse in a period building right on the main street of Ferndale. It feels family run and all the staff worked hard to make sure we were happy. The interior has been sympathetically restored in period style (though with modern bathrooms for clients convenience), and are clean and well maintained. Victorian interiors... More

This is a beautiful property. We were immediately greeted when we walked in the door and the manager (possibly owner?) was very friendly and thorough in checking us in, directing us to our rooms, and offering assistance with our luggage. We enjoyed the onsite restaurant for dinner and the next morning's breakfast. Dinner was very good, though service was a... More

Ferndale was a stop on our drive from Washington to California. The Victorian Inn is a nice historical place to stay. The building is old..which is why it is charming..but you are not going to get ultra modern things in a place like this. Yes, there are stairs but they will help with your bags as needed. Our room was... More

We selected the Victorian Inn for our anniversary get-away and it was delightful! The breakfast that was included was superb. The only drawback was negotiating the stairs to get to the room, as the Inn has no elevator. It appeared they were slanted in the wrong direction and the step itself was on the narrow side. Strolling downtown to visit... More

My daughter and I spent a weekend at The Victorian Inn and had a great time. The victorian woodworking throughout the building is remarkable as is the furniture both in the rooms and hallways. The parlor on the second floor with the electric fireplace was a nice touch. The linens were first class and the beds very comfortable. Glad to... More
