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 Pacifici 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.

For $575 the Romantic Getaway/Honeymoon and Anniversary special package includes:

  • Two nights in the Shaw Suite
  • Chilled champagne or sparkling cider
  • Sumptuous chocolates, our special bubble bath, and fresh flowers

Special Touches for All Occasions

  • Roses - $50
  • Champagne - $50
  • Picnic Basket for Two - $45

After a Restful Sleep

Follow your nose down to our dining room in the morning — you can enjoy our outstanding locally roasted organic coffee along with our Light and Healthy Choices Breakfast Buffet. Breakfast is available from 8:00 am - 10:00 am.

We will have a freshly baked entree and goodie every day — crystal trays full of scones, muffins, tarts, or strudel. There will be a big fruit bowl, yogurt, homemade granola, berries, and juice. As well as quiches, cobblers, and breakfast meats. Our locally roasted coffee will be freshly ground and brewed, waiting for you.

When available, we choose organic products and use only the freshest, most choice ingredients, such as Humboldt Creamery milk and cheese, cage free/free range organic eggs, and organic flour, sugar, and butter. Our fruit is chosen from our local farmers markets and co-ops. We also choose 100% Guatemalan organic rain forest beans and grind them fresh every morning.
