Shaw House Inn

Shaw House InnOur frontier Inn, built in the gold rush era of 1854, was a labor of love dedicated to a cherished fiancée.

It was the Shaw family home for more than 100 years and opened briefly as an Inn in 1860. It has always been a place of gracious surroundings and hospitality.

Redwood Parks, beach parks, hiking trails, kayaking, birding, shopping - all around us.

We have one acre of lushly planted grounds remaining of the original
160 homesteaded acres. Our grounds are dense with mature redwoods, maple, cedar, cypress and walnut. Our apple and cherry plum trees are original plantings as well as a few of our roses. It is a park and sanctuary you can share with our birds, deer and butterflies. We invite you to visit our Inn and garden.


Your lodging comfort is assured in eight relaxing guest rooms, each with a private bath and a unique collection of antiques. Three rooms feature private balconies, perfect for watching the sun rise or set. Four rooms are especially suited to solitude with the added privacy of their own separate entrances.

A visit to our three beautifully decorated parlors offers a quiet place to meet and relax.

We provide all those little extras that make your stay even more enjoyable. Our guests enjoy a comfortable night's rest on Serta perfect sleeper mattresses with Memory foam toppers.

At afternoon tea, you may choose from over twenty varieties of Gypsy and Republic of Tea as well as local cheeses.

Please see our complete list of amenities.

There is a special quality at the Shaw House Inn, unlike that found at any other Ferndale inn. Come and experience what it is that is making us a favorite vacation destination.
