The Shaw House

The Experience

Our Neighborhood

Our Shaw House Inn is a beautifully restored frontier home nestled in the pastoral Eel River Valley. We are surrounded by giant redwoods, rugged Pacific coastline and mountain rivers.

Just to our south is the famous Avenue of the Giants and the Redwood State Park, Prairie Creek, and Patrick's Point Park, Fern Canyon, and the beach parks are just to the north.

Come and stay for awhile. The Shaw House Inn is within minutes of all the beauty and adventure the North coast of California has to offer.

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.

Romantic Getaways

Our elegant Shaw Suite is a perfect room for the most special of occasions.

The “Master Bedroom” of the house has been given to honeymooners since the 1860s. Marriage ceremonies were performed in the house by its builder, Seth Shaw, and the newlyweds were ushered upstairs to sleep in a huge four poster feather bed under the 20 foot vaulted ceiling. The suite's cozy fireplace keeps romance warm. A few nights spent in the Shaw Suite is definitely a time honored tradition.

Healthy Breakfast

Social distancing has changed our breakfast seating, but our breakfast buffet is as delicious as always. There will be a ‘hot out of the oven’ egg entree, a meat choice, pluse a freshly baked pastry of some sort, maybe muffins, scones, coffee cake slices, homemade donuts or yeasted cinnamon rolls. Our dining room refrigerator will be filled with yogurts, juice boxes, fruit cups. We'll have fresh oranges, clementines and bananas. We always do our baking with organic flour, sugar and cage free eggs.

Of course, freshly ground & brewed organic coffee in hot pots, with stacked to-go cups or dishwasher sanitized Shaw House mugs.

All can be enjoyed at one of our indoor tables for 2, an outdoor table, or take a tray to your room.
