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 $495 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

Healthy Breakfast

California's safety standards require 6 ft. distancing between breakfast tables which we can't provide. So, reluctantly, we must change our breakfast options and offer a continental selection. Our refrigerator will be filled with yogurts, juice boxes, grapefruit cups, and hard boiled eggs. We'll have fresh oranges and bananas. There will be a freshly baked pastry of some sort, either muffins, scones, coffee cake slices, homemade donuts or cinnamon rolls which will be individually wrapped. We always do our baking with organic flour, sugar and eggs.

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

All will be easily transportable to our outdoor tables, your rooms, or car.
