“Could not have asked for a more perfect place for the grandkids, the pups, and us!”
Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This house is so close to town (one block) yet private. Pet-friendly, it has a fenced side yard for the dogs to do their business. Beautiful yard and a small creek nearby. I loved the porch with outdoor dining. We took advantage of the fire pit with seating and firewood provided to have a low-tech marshmallow roast. It was comfortable, incredibly clean, well-equipped, and peaceful. We also enjoyed our chats with the owners who made it their mission to be sure we had everything we needed and information about the local community. I have already recommended this house to friends. LOVELY!!

“Great base for exploring Humboldt County”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The cottage is very comfortable and well appointed. The cottage is well laid out was more than enough room for our family of four. It provided a great base for visiting the redwoods and the lost coast. Being within walking distance to town also made it very convenient for exploring Ferndale and if you forgot an ingredient for dinner! It was nice to be able to relax outside with a glass of wine after our exploring. Marilyn and Carlos were very welcoming!
Can't wait to come back again!

And we can't wait to have these guests back again. They were very considerate and gracious. I am glad to hear their exploration projects were successful. Our house is secluded but within a few blocks of downtown, and Ferndale is in easy reach of ocean and redwood adventures, or shopping and architectural exploration.

“GREAT GETAWAY HOME”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Recently stayed early part of Sept. 2015 at a GREAT getaway home in Ferndale - The Francis St. Vacation Home. The six adults in our family had PLENTY of room in the home & never felt like we were in each others way. The name of the rental says is all. It is a HOME not JUST a rental House. Nicely decorated & warmly inviting. WONDERFUL owners Carlos & Marilyn even loaned us a large pot where we could cook our corn. Cozy dinning room with a cool passage window into the kitchen. VERY close walking distance to Main St. where all the lovely shops are. Didn't seem like we had enough time to explore...Fern Cottage Tour is a must. Just a few miles outside of town. We had a number of cars in the driveway where we had more than enough room for parking. GREAT home - well equipped for cooking & even laundry. Comfortable beds with hand-held shower heads...GREAT FEATURE!!! Thank you Marilyn & Carlos for being so welcoming - would love to visit again!! The residence of Ferndale are equally as friendly.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I along with friends stayed in this charming, 2 bath, 2 bedroom, home. The home is walking distance from the main street of Ferndale yet situated on a quite street. Marilyn & Carlos, the owners, (They live next door.) were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the relaxed privacy this home offered us. I highly recommend this home if you are looking for a place to stay in Ferndale.

“Best vacation rental in Ferndale!”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I'm proud to be the first to review this wonderful house with Tripadvisor. My husband and I were overwhelmed by the spaciousness and the attention to detail, it was fully equipped, especially the kitchen which we enjoyed and used. This is a solid house that was built by the owner's son so you could see the quality of work put into it. We had a few sunny days in Ferndale where we could enjoy the outdoor patio along with the most comfortable patio furniture and a bar-b-cue. The title of my review "Best in Ferndale" is warranted as we have stayed in just about every Ferndale accommodation over the last 25 years visiting this great town. Francis Street is within walking distance to downtown and the fairgrounds so you don't really need to drive within town. Our hosts Carlos and Marilyn were very gracious and accommodating and we even enjoyed a bar-b-cue with them. So, if you are in Ferndale and need a quiet vacation rental this place can't be beat. We loved it and definitely will be returning. Thanks to Carlos and Marilyn for your hospitality.

Thank you for the kind, wonderful review. We are always delighted to know that guests really use and enjoy all the features of the house. I must return the compliments to our guests. These folks have been coming to Ferndale and exploring the town so often they are honorary members of the community, especially at fair and race time.
