My daughters and I were the only guests at this quaint b & b when we stayed. So, we had the run of the place. We enjoyed the variety of teas in front of the fireplace in the family room. My girls played games while I read there. We stayed in the Garden Room with queen and twin beds. We...

Loved staying here for a romantic and restful getaway! Beautiful victorian house and beautiful room. Had our own deck and enjoyed the extensive and lovely gardens. Would be a fabulous place for an intimate wedding. Loved the buffet breakfast! The blueberry scones were fantastic! So many places serve eggy breakfasts which we don't care for so this was great! Yogurt,...

A beautiful Inn. Warm and inviting inside and the park is so beautiful. We stayed in the Shaw Suite upstairs, it is a magical room. 4 poster bed, a fireplace and a skylight/moonlight right over the claw foot tub. With bubble bath. Excellent breakfast and coffee, tea selection is extensive. We were completely refreshed and happy!

This was our first experience with a B&B and didn't know what to expect- The room was small but enough room for the 2 of us- Even though I knew there wasn't a TV in the room- I really missed it. We had our own bathroom down the hall- clean and everything was well decorated to suit the Victorian home....

I called the Shaw House and made a reservation 4 months in advance of our trip. When I gave her my credit card number, I specifically asked to make sure that the card was not actually going to be charged at that time. I explained to her that I did not want to use that card for the trip, just...

There are a lot of things to recommend this Inn - it's a beautiful Victorian building - elaborately decorated, in a nice town. There are real fireplaces in the main building with inviting living-rooms lined with books and games and DVDs for your room. The house has a lot of history, and there is information about it available in the...

This is a beautiful, well-preserved Victorian. The only drawback is that the hostess was not very accommodating, and we really felt as if we were a bit of a bother.

The garden outside is breathtaking. The hostess is bery friendly, who makes the most delicious and incredible breakfasts. You stay at the Shaw House...

READ THE POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU PURCHASE A NIGHT FROM HER. SHE CHARGES HEAVILY AND DOES NOT ALLOW ANY ROOM FOR GUEST MANEUVER. We were greeted by a rather unfriendly hostess. Wouldn't it make sense to have sugar free and plain tea amongst the tea box lined walls? Apparently it was an insult to suggest such a thing. Breakfast was...

This was our second visit to Ferndale, which is one of the most intriguing small towns I've ever visited. In many ways, with the heavy emphasis on its Victorian appearance, being in this town is like stepping back in time without anyone being all that obvious about the Victorian decor that predominates. In keeping with the general appearance of Ferndale,...
