We stayed at Abigail's for two nights on a birthday/vacation trip to northern California October 8-9. We only wish we could have had a whole week to explore the premises and surrounding area. Abigail's is a treasure, located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Our hosts, Lily and Doug, were extremely interesting and informative. We were treated more as friends than as guests. The house is amazing, filled with history and antiques - it was like stepping back in time. The location is very convenient for exploring Eureka, Redwoods National Park, the Lost Coast and Humboldt Redwoods State Park. There is so much to do that our two days went by in a flash. Doug and Lily were great hosts and provided an insider's perspective on the local sites and restaurants. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Eureka.
