"Beautiful, restful. Lovely old town and the back road drive from Garberville was wonderful. Lots of beautiful scenery."
Gordon and Sally, Bakersfield, CA ~ 2008
The entire village is California Historic Landmark No. 883, and the Main Street Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There you will enjoy the amazingly preserved Victorian buildings, many wonderful specialty shops, art galleries and Ferndale’s own Repertory Theatre. At night, dine in comfort at Hotel Ivanhoe or Curley’s Grill.
If you enjoy hiking, Russ Park has over 100 acres with more than 3 miles of hiking trails.
Peacefully watch the deer grazing while viewing sunsets from the large private deck just outside your door. End your day gazing at a clear night sky filled with stars impossible to see in the big cities. You will be staying in a quiet residential neighborhood, a two-block walk from the heart of Ferndale’s magnificent historic Main Street shopping district, theatre, parks and dining.
Ferndale is just five miles away from the beautiful Centerville Beach on the Pacific Ocean and the powerful northwest surf. The beach is wide and rustic with little restrictions regarding pets, bonfires, ATV’s and even horseback riding. It was named the “Best Beach on the North Coast” by the Times-Standard newspaper in Eureka, California.
There are also many seasonal activities like the world famous Kinetic Sculpture Race that actually ends in Ferndale on Memorial Day. Ferndale hosts the nation’s oldest continuing Memorial Day observance of more than 140 years with a small town parades of Main Street and a service at the historic pioneer cemetery overlooking town.
There is Bargain Lovers' Weekend, the townwide garage sale, every September. And don’t forget to stop by the County Fairgrounds were many events take place including the ‘Old-Fashioned’ County Fair every August. Check the Ferndale calendar of events as you plan your vacation.
"What a great place! I loved the cool air and warm hot tub. We will definitely be back. Thanks."
