My wife and I stumbled upon the Victorian Inn on a trip down the Pacific coast and through the redwoods. This town is an absolute gem, with numerous spectacularly preserved examples of Victorian architecture. Among the best of these is the VI. We were treated spendidly during our stay here, enjoying an excellent breakfast in the picturesque dining, and upon learning we were on a honeymoon of sorts, the manager gave us a free upgrade to the best room in the house. The next morning, we had a perfect view of a little parade passing down the street outside our window.
Ferndale is the best widespread example of Victorian architecture I have ever visited, and the Victorian Inn did not disappoint. It was a wonderful respite after days of hiking old growth redwood and spruce forests, and the best night of our trip.
