Gingerbread Mansion Inn
Property information by Wcities, Inc
\"One of northern California's most photographed inns,\" this elegant mansion is nestled in the Victorian village of Ferndale and offers 11 guest rooms and suites, all with private baths, antiques, and luxurious amenities. A full breakfast and afternoon high tea are served and guests are pampered with turn-down service, bedside chocolates, and soft bathrobes.
While it's right on the street, the guest rooms aren't noisy. It's a lovely building, well maintained, with the sweetest paint job I've seen on the painted ladies. The owners are always improving it, and the lovely little garden is quite a jewel as well. The breakfast is yummy, and served nicely. I really recommend it! There's a HUGE suite on the third floor, with all the opulence you could ever ask for. If it's not occupied, at least peek in!
My wife and I have stayed here several times ad always found it delightful. I was shocked to find out it's closed and in foreclosure!! What a shame! another victim of the economy, I guess. If you have gift certificates, I guess you're out of luck. My rating is based on the fact that it closed abruptly.
This is the nicest place we have ever stayed. Note that the ownership changed a few years ago, so I doubt the 2005 comments would apply anymore. The gardens are exceptional and secluded. I only have a few minor comments and suggestions for those thinking of staying there. First, check-in is 4pm, so don't try to get in early. Even in late July the weather was cool, but there are no screens, so if you expect to get fresh air be prepared for some tiny visiters - but it's not really a big problem in Ca. Finally, breakfast (a bit Spartan for me with no butter to be found) is served at one seating at 9 am. If you like to start the day early like me, you either skip breakfast, or get a late start. I still give the place a 5 star rating - it is worth the trip.
We have been staying at the Gingerbread Mansion for several years, at least once a year. We have stayed in almost every room, from the least to most expensive. We are very picky, but don't mind paying good money for a good product. Trust me, this place is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The staff is friendly and efficient, the food is good and plentiful, (the afternoon tea is wonderful!). The rooms are well appointed, very clean (did I mention we are picky??). The overall ambiance is very relaxing, with fireplaces, books, and games available, not to mention the 'vintage' style bicycles available for guests to use. We gave up on "bargain" lodging long ago, and can afford to stay wherevever we choose. And we choose the Gingerbread. We suggest you give them a try. I know you will love this place!
My husband and I have often stopped in Ferndale during our summer trips to the North Coast. It's a beautiful, charming little town. We've stayed at the Gingerbread before, but it's even better now under it's new owners (one of whom is the Vince mentioned below.) The rooms are always clean and comfortable, and the service and accommodations are excellent. They even have WiFi now! We've stayed in many B&Bs all over the country, but have to say that The Gingerbread is our favorite.
Even though they claim to be "authentic" Victorian, they look, dress and act more like the Amish - rediculous! Lousy breakfast food, with leftovers from the day before, a cold room and dirty bathroom only added to my impression of a run-down establishment, whose owners don't know a thing or two about running it. We spent an afternoon with other guests and they agreed 110% with us.
The Gingerbread Mansion Inn is a beautiful victorian home. Our rooms were elegant, the bedding sumptuous and every square inch was prisitine clean. I am very picky about cleanliness!
The breakfast was delicious and our host, Vince, was wonderful. Our breakfast companions were as delighted as we were.
This was an accidental lodging for another couple and my husband and myself. We were tired and didn't like the looks of Eureka's lodgings. What a wonderful surprise!
The town is charming, with shopping. I bought a Brighton bag and accessorys at one of the shops; and an antique horse toy at another. We purchased books that night on "the honor" system at a book store.
The weather was wonderful.
We are going to return for sure, this fall.
