Great building and better inn keeper! Rooms are great and fairly priced but CASH ONLY! there is so much to see here that you may want to stay an additional day to see the antiques in every single room. Be sure to ask the innkeeper questions as he in a great resource for this area. No breakfast included but still...

Because of security issues experienced by Credit Card companies, the Inn no longer accepts Credit Cards - only cash. There are several ATM machines conveniently located nearby. The Inn also has stopped accepting advanced reservations - however last minute "Drop In's", or 'same day' calls made while on route to Eureka are accepted. Also the room with the ensuite Private...

My wife and I stayed here in April, 2009. Lily welcomed us, took our payment, gave us a brief tour of the house/museum, explained she and Doug were going to a concert that evening, and left us in a most delightful setting. I felt as if I'd traveled back in time what with all the old furnishings and just so...

We spend a night in the house on our way from north to south. The house is a landmark located at the crossing of 2 quiet streets. Plenty of room to park right in front of the main door. Lily gave us a tour of the house which set the clock many years back. It was like unveiling a secret....

The house is a classic gem with a wonderful history since its completion in 1888. We were driving from Oregon and were late in arriving. We called ahead, and Doug waited up for us, greeting us at the front door with a smile. We had a quick tour of the first floor, and then chose rooms on the second. Every...

We found this B&B on the web, and it exceeded all of our expectations. Lilly and Doug are terrific innkeepers and their stories are both educational and fun.

Stayed one night at Abigail's Elegant Victorian Mansion. Wonderful place. Beautiful from the outside and the inside completely brings one back to Victorian times. Truly unique experience. The mansion coupled with Doug's history lesson were fascination. Additionally this experience comes with quite reasonable rates. Would highly recommend to anyone passing through Eureka.

If you like Victorians you'll love Abigail's Elegant Victorian Mansion. The innkeepers have restored this mansion to the true Victorian era. The attention to details is awesome! For some history on the mansion and the area be sure to spend some time with the Vieyra's.
