Farmhouse -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Ferndale, Humboldt County, California
This is a family-style rental: We are the owners, and we live there. A home-cooked (local, fresh food) dinner as well as breakfast is included in the room price. Our house was family-built in 1947 with local materials and war-surplus supplies: it is rustic and full of history. We're an easy one-mile walk to the (wild, North Pacific) ocean. Wonderful redwood forest hiking within 30 minutes. The bathroom is modern, upgraded, lots of hot water for (great-water-pressure) showers. It is not adjacent to the room, but it is private to the booking. The non-working farm is an 80-acre wild park of evergreen forests and pastures in a secluded, private valley. No ambient light or sound. Bed (a 'full' not a 'queen') is very comfy. The windows, un-obscured by covering, look out over the garden and the valley, a beautiful, serene v... Read more

The house is tucked away in a peaceful, quiet, secluded valley surrounded by woods a short distance from the Victorian town of Ferndale and within earshot of the ocean. That's only part of the charm of this place. The hosts, Wendy and John, really went...More

About the neighbourhood
We're in rural small ranch and farm country, one mile from the Pacific Ocean. We have no visible (or audible) neighbors. Four miles east is the small (1.500 population) Victorian village of Ferndale. Our specific property is vintage, comforting, peaceful, quiet. The region is separated from Highway 101 by a 106-year-old concrete span, Fernbridge, itself an engineering wonder. Fernbridge crosses the wild Eel River 8 miles from its mouth (the home of a large colony of harbor seals). The Eel River Valley has been an agricultural center (dairy/butter/ice cream) for 150 years, and little has changed in the geography or architecture of the area. We are a thriving community with a diversity of people.
Getting around
Bicycles in town and around the valley. Ours are old, but work.
