We had a great stay at the Shaw House Inn. The grounds are vast and lovely. The house is very Victorian and also lovely. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast very generous and very good! What more could you ask for? Thank you Shaw House Inn!

A lovely stay in October. I was traveling solo and was pleased when I pulled into the driveway and saw this Victorian home. It's period inside and out; the gardens provided plenty of room to sit and admire them. The home is a period home not a re-do so expect some creaky floors and doors that may stick due to...

I had been wanting to stay at a B & B in Ferndale for some time and was glad I chose Shaw House. It is a historic B & B on Main Street within easy strolling distance from the downtown area of shops and restaurants. It is tastefully decorated in period decor - not overdone. I had a clean and...

Overnight stay in this lovely and clean B&B. Stairs to rooms are very steep and bathrooms have clawfoot tubs. Very quiet & wonderful library/sitting room. Beautiful gardens and plenty of parking. Tea & homemade cookies on arrival & breakfast at 8 AM. Charming town and close to beach.

I came to Ferndale for the finale of the Kinetic Art Race. Even though I do not live far away I thought it best to get a room for the evening. Despite a few bad reviews, I chose the Shaw House Inn and I'm glad I did. Check in went very smoothly even though there were internet problems and i...

Booked a room here through hotels.com and we were working in the area so I called in the early afternoon to let them know we would be arriving a little late only to be told "Oh no! You can't have that room, I already rented it to someone else and I'm going to reject your reservation" After I already had...

Accidentally overslept after a terrible night sleep in a very uncomfortable bed. The owner woke us up by banging angrily on the door and curtly informed us we had 15 minutes to be out of her house. I have never experienced such rudeness from someone who works in the hospitality industry. The house was tired and old.When visiting the bathroom...

Built by Ferndale's founder, this 1850s house has good bones but is a bit shabby. Set back from the road in an overgrown, old-fashioned garden, it was covered with cobwebs outside and a riot of patterns in. We'd reserved the master bedroom, which had a wonderful wood-panelled ceiling with lots of angles and a private bath that was less charming...

This is a very nice B&B. Ferndale itself is frozen in time in the late 1880s and this place lets you stay in a charming period place from that era. A few reviews have mentioned that some maintenance and refreshing is needed, and yes, we would agree, but there was nothing to take away from the nice experience. If you...

The Shaw House is tired, worn and badly in need of renovation. My room was small and, as I said, badly in need of renovation. The bath was dated and, although dedicated for my use, was located down a hallway and not even close to my room. Also, the bath had no overhead shower, hand held only. Ferndale has many...
