“Wonderful for families”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My group had a nice family reunion here so that all of the cousins could play. Ferndale is such a sweet and fun town for kids. Scooter down to get an ice cream cone or a gourmet cupcake,, see a live play, browse the old fashioned toy store, kite flying at the beach, visit some redwoods, grab great pizza...Anyway, Cream City Cottage was a perfect place for us. It was just as described. We liked the idea of the backyard "Marshmallow Cooker" so we brought wood and S'mores stuff and enjoyed some family bonding time in front of the pretty fire while we stuffed our faces with gooey goodness. There was a switch right inside the dining room French doors that turned on some pretty outdoor lights, so our evening with the toasted marshmallows was extra festive. My daughter fell in love with the big wooden playhouse and wants to come back just for that. The whole property is decorated beautifully, but NOT in that fussy, lots of fragile breakable stuff way that gives parents of young kids a heart attack. The kids played fun board games (that we found on a shelf in the living room) in the breakfast nook while the adults played cards and gabbed in the dining room. There were lots of berries ripe to pick in the Studio's backyard. Since we rented both units (main house and studio) it was fun to keep the gate open and let the kids run back and forth on the nice little paved path between the two. Room to romp! Both TV's had lots of great movies for kid's pre-recorded, all of the newer Disney favs, etc, so it was easy to keep everyone entertained so the adult's could talk. Cream City Cottage=kid tested, adults approved. Take your kid's to Ferndale, there aren't too many places like it left!

“Location, location, location! Beautiful Place to Vacation!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Location, location, location! My group of friends tries to get to Ferndale at least once a year...It's the perfect vacation spot for couples or friends. Pristine beach, remarkable architecture, redwoods nearby, great food and shopping, art galleries, plus quirky and fun events to take in like vintage car shows, the Kinetic Sculpture Race every May, and holiday festivities that take you back to the good old days...I like to hike Russ Park and the BLM trails at Centerville with my daughter or nieces and nephews....However, on our last trip we inadvertently booked a vacation rental that was several miles out of Ferndale proper...So, we were stuck taking the car everywhere, which isn't horrible, but not our preference for sure. ANYWAY, this time around we were thrilled to find "The Cream City Cottage," a new vacation rental that is within SHORT walking distance of everything great about Ferndale. Roll out of your (great quality, comfortable!) bed and over to Humboldt Sweets for your ginormous pecan roll! Step out of your pretty, landscaped yard and in a matter of seconds you're strolling Ferndale's historic, eye-poppingly gorgeous Victorian Main Street full of cute shops. My point is, Cream City Cottage is super convenient for traveler's like me who want everything to be CLOSE, CLOSE, CLOSE and easy!
Beyond it's extremely convenient location, we also appreciated being able to have the 2 bed/1 bath main house (with it's delightful breakfast nook and dining room! We ate scones and played cards in there!) AS WELL AS the adorable studio-sized cottage at the back of the property. It was nice for one of the couples in our group to be able to retire to the quiet seclusion of the studio cottage while the rest of us stayed up yakking about old times to all hours in the comfortably furnished living room. If anyone is traveling with their parents or in-laws or another family, I'd highly recommend spending the extra few $ to rent the studio cottage as well. It has a good queen bed, a nice hot shower in it's bathroom, and a teeny kitchenette where you can make coffee in the machine or fridge/nuke your gourmet leftovers from Curley's.
We don't really cook when we travel--we want to eat out! But if you do like to cook or want to save money, the main house kitchen is awfully pretty, and fully stocked.
All in all, Cream City Cottage is a wonderful addition to the Ferndale vacation offerings. A beautiful, comfortable place that will make your vacation oh-so-easy to enjoy!

“Lovely cottage in Victorian Ferndale”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

On a whim and friend and I decided to visit the Victorian Village of Ferndale for a weekend and found the perfect getaway at Cream City Cottage. From the comfy king size bed to the charming breakfast nook we loved it. And so close to all the attractions on Main Street. We breakfasted at Humboldt Sweets and dined at Curly's Full Circle. In between we visited Centerville Beach, just a short drive through the country to the gorgeous Pacific. Cream City Cottage was everything we hoped for in a vacation rental. Clean, cozy, and comfortable with all the modern amenities. We felt right at home. Our next visit will be longer - 2 days wasn't enough time to fully enjoy the cottage, the town, and the surrounding area's attractions. Big fan!!!
