The overnight stay I had at Abigail's Elegant Victorian Mansion in Eureka, California was absolutely exquisite. Pound for pound, dollar for dollar, I have never had a more outstanding stay in any establishment...anywhere! Doug & Lily Vieyra, the curator and innkeepers, were nothing short of spectacular. Their attention to detail and the catering to our every need left me speechless....

Abigail's Elegant Victorian Mansion in Eureka, CA is a one-of-a-kind gem. In all our our travels of the world we have never stayed in an Inn as charming, immaculate, and authentic to its vision. The living museum is everything it promises to be. The decorations are true to period from the pictures to the wallpapered ceilings to the furniture. And...

Wow ! We (Lily and I ) are a bit embarrassed by such an accolade. It is a pretty high bar to measure up to. And while not every guest enjoys interaction with the innkeepers, we strive to keep our goal of meeting our guest’s expectations foremost on our minds – whether it be the lavish and opulent Victorian interiors,...

After our beautiful ride up through the old Redwood Highway, and lunch along the way in the Victorian town of Ferndale, my hubby and I returned to one of our favorite B & B's: Abigail's Elegant Mansion in Eureka Calif. Due to the fact that our favorite room, the Governor's room was already taken we relented to take the Langtry...

It is always a joy to welcome guests to our 1878 National Historic Landmark Victorian Inn - It enriches both the spirit and the energy of our soul. And this is especially so when returning guests come to visit us again. Although noted for its outstanding quality, elegance, and highly personalized service, more than that, the ELEGANT VICTORIAN is a...

Eloise is quite right - There are many attractions and restaurants in Eureka. One place that combines both attraction AND restaurant is on Eureka's Woodley Island (no boat is needed - there is the bridge to Samoa on Hiway 255). On the Island (itself is a wildlife sanctuary) are both the Yacht Marina / Fishing-Boat docks, AND the Cafe Marina....

This unique Victorian mansion is a wonderful place to stay for a couple, if you are into Victorian period décor and related ambiance. The rooms are full of antiques and items to see and take photos of. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in old downtown Eureka that are nearby. Unfortunately there is no wine served at night, or...

We are delighted that the reviewer appreciated our Victorian House Museum and it’s lodging. The reviewer is quite right in stating that one must appreciate Victoriana and authentic Victorian interior decorating and furnishings to feel comfortable here.

Humboldt County on California's far North Coast hosts a number of significant sights worth making the long drive (5 hours from San Francisco, Sacramento, 8 hours from Portland). First and foremost are the magnificant Giant Redwood Trees that dominate our region, including Redwood National Park and Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Secondly, the stunning and rugged coastline of the Pacific Ocean,...

Enriching our guest's stay is our most important objective. Our Historic Victorian Mansion is NOT for everyone - but for those who value and appreciate a small unique lodging experience, this may be a place for the weary traveler to 'de-compress' from a long drive. The rich and colourful decor of the Victorian 1890's interiors help lift the spirits and...

A wonderfully decorated home! Very nice innkeepers. No breakfast, but we went to Cafe Marina, and had a great meal. Our only gripe was the louvered door on the "private" bathroom had had NO privacy, it was our own bath, in our room, but a solid door would have been nicer. There was also no TV, if that is a...

We are delighted to have helped enrichen our guests lodging experience. Our historic 1878 Inn has many unique features that are seldom found in today’s modern motels / hotels. And too ofcourse, there are some short-comings. As the reviewer mentioned, our upstairs bedrooms have no televisions. However in one of our three down-stairs parlors we do have a 32” viewing...
