Cream City Cottage in Victorian Village of Ferndale and Separate Studio (fee)

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 6, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. No pets allowed.

725 Berding St Ferndale, CA 95536 United States

Cream City Cottage, in the Victorian Village of Ferndale, is a Charming 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath home built in 1934. You'll love the big, comfortable, living room, formal dining room, sunny breakfast nook, full-sized bathtub with updated shower, kitchen with 1930's cabinetry, and antique Art Nouveau light fixtures sprinkled throughout. The larger bedroom boasts one of Ferndale's only king beds! A second bedroom features a cloud-like, memory foam-topped queen bed. It also holds a daybed composed of two comfy, made-up mattresses which you can separate into two twins and place wherever you wish--a very kid-friendly option to have! The cheery, private back patio contains an antique brick fireplace, now dubbed "The Marshmallow Cooker" for more unplugged family fun (Note: for plugged-in fun, enjoy the wifi and satellite TV pre-stocked with newly-recorded movies!!!). The Separate Studio, at the back of this large property, is a converted carriage house with a full bath with standing shower, queen bed, landscaped yard with a handmade wooden playhouse, wifi, satellite TV, and sun room. Very cute, and perfect for one or two additional people. The main house plus the studio are a nice combination for families traveling together... Maybe the grandparents or aunt & uncle want to be with the whole family for a while but then be able to retire to a peaceful, private place of their own. Rent the whole property and let your kids pick blueberries in the studio's backyard and read children's books in it's playhouse! Follow this link: http://redwoodcoastvacationrentals.com/Unit/Details/89912 to view and book the Cream City Studio. News Flash! This listing now features Ferndale's one and only "Cream City Fun Fleet!" What's that? It's an entire stable of various types and sizes of bikes, scooters, a stroller, and a kiddies cargo wagon, all saddled up and ready for you to enjoy on Ferndale's flat, scenic streets, or beyond! Such a fun bonus-list of equipment available on request so you can pre-plan your family fun days to perfection! For Studio listing access to the Fun Fleet, contact manager.
Cream City Cottage is perched in a tranquil neighborhood that's just two blocks from Ferndale's historic downtown, with it's ice cream parlor, homemade candy shop, galleries, fine restaurants, saloons (really!), parades, theater, frequent live music, and lots more! It's one of a just a few vacation homes in Ferndale, the village that people love to come to (they actually made a replica of it in Legoland)! Forbes named Ferndale one of AMERICA’S PRETTIEST TOWNS! "From its well-preserved Victorian-era main street, to its five-minute drive from California’s magnificent, undeveloped Lost Coast, Ferndale is a surprising trip back in time, with just enough modern quirkiness to make it unique." "A genuine Victorian hamlet" (AP reporter Jennifer Marin), Ferndale has been dubbed "the best preserved Victorian village in California," by Los Angeles Times former travel editor Jerry Hulse. Nestled between the two redwood forests in a thriving dairy community, you may discover Northern California's best-kept secret, The Victorian Village of Ferndale. Sunset magazine confirms that "you can immerse yourself in Ferndale's Victorian spirit." Also, follow this link: victorianferndale.com/events for info on Ferndale Events.

    Kay K from Coeur d' Alene, ID recommends this vacation rental

    This cottage is warm and spacious. Well appointed, we had everything we needed.(but could not find any clothes hangers!?!). There were four women, we had plenty of room. The gas stoves warmed the cottage quickly. We were there during some very foul weather so were not able to utilize the backyard at all. Lots of dishes, pots and pans, all the things you need like coffee maker, toaster, microwave.
    The location is ideal. When it wasn't pouring rain we were just a short walk to restaurants. Three of us did the Humboldt-Redwoods half-marathon and the proximity to the Avenue of the Giants was about a thirty minute drive.
    This village is charming. A short drive (maybe 3 or 4 miles) to a beach that seemed to go on for miles. Sandy beach.
    If I ever had a chance to return to this area, I would plan the trip around the availability of this accommodation.

    Sarah A from Redding, CA recommends this vacation rental

    GREAT property, spent 6 nights there. Nice layout and space of house and good size patio and yard for family. Note: no spatula for that great bbq though! The house was clean enough but strange to find a large amount of talcum (or face?) powder on dressing table in king room and some other dusty spots. We rented the studio out back as well and it was perfect for two people. Playhouse for kids was darling and our great granddaughters spiffed it up. They did a great job - it was very messy! Ferndale is a great town, very nice locals. Ivanhoe for a meal on Thursdays is a must, live music that night. Humbolt Sweets is amazing! Papa Joes for breakfast! Easy to get to beach, fantastic seeing the Giant Redwoods not too far away. We loved our stay and hopefully will be back! Prob Mgr. was very helpful.

    We live in the Bay Area, but our 2 daughters and granddaughter live in Loleta. They came for dinner Saturday we were able to fully enjoy the big dining room. The Little One is two....she pulled out and played with every toy in the living room! It was pretty great to have them available. We were so comfortable in this house that our only complaint was when we had to leave.

    • Manager Responded on 2/12/2016

      Thanks, Sher! We love it when families can get together and have a nice time. Thank you for feeling the fun and please come to the Cream city Cottage next time you are here visiting your daughters and granddaughter!

    Ferndale is beautiful, and this property is walking distance to all the sights and restaurants, the amazing cemetery and the whole town. Sweet and comfortable place to stay. Only minor glitch with the rental is no way to unlock the front door and have it stay unlocked for a bit, so watch out!

    a guest from Walmer, Deal recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed for 2 nights as part of a road trip from Seattle to LA. The cottage was clean, spacious and full of character. Great location close to downtown, just a few minutes walk to the shops and restaurants. Ideal for exploring the lost coast and giant redwoods. Ferndale is a world away from many of the less attractive stopover options, a step back in time but still offers good dining options such as Curley's where we had a lovely dinner and Popa Joe's which was great for breakfast and busy with locals.

    • Manager Responded on 10/3/2015

      Thanks for appreciating what Ferndale has to offer! The locals take great pride in their small community and love it when visitor come and have a nice visit. Please come see us again soon. Humboldt and Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals has plenty to offer!

    Joan H from Walterville, OR recommends this vacation rental

    I'm really unsure how to describe Cream City Cottage. We all had a great time, but we also had issues with this place. First, the shower spray is so sharp it's painful. We all had to stand with our backs to the spray. The sofa and one chair are very old and totally worn out.If you sat back on the sofa you could not get out.Both railings on the bottom of one chair we're broken and the bottom shelf of the tea cart was hanging. The yard was unkempt and there was a plastic bucket that I was told covered a wasp nest. There also was a rake and putty knife laying on the walk way, plus a sink, ice chest and many kids toys laying around the yard. The first time we opened the gate the string broke and we had to repair it. All of this said, we did enjoy our stay and would maybe stay again. The house was large and most of it was nice. I think the owners idea of yard art is different than mine. The location is great. We we're given the wrong code to the cottage and the man I called to get the right one was wonderful as was the people we booked with. With new furniture, shower head and some yard maintenance this would be a really special place.

    • Manager Responded on 10/3/2015

      Joan, we are very pleased you had a nice time. Our fabulous owners here frequent the cottage often and are always working to keep the place up while they have thier thier children with them, hence some of the disarray you found in the yard. We will look into the issues you described and hope you choose Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals in the future, as we have over 70 properties meaning we have something for everyone!

    a guest from Centerville, UT recommends this vacation rental

    This was a relaxing stay at the beautiful city of Ferndale. The cottage was comfortable and everything was ready for our stay. We loved having the bicycles to ride and felt completely safe the entire time. We loved the temps of 60 to 70 degrees and 5 mins from a quiet beach were great. Ferndale itself was very difficult to get to with long mountain drives taking several hrs to arrive, and whatever you do,don't fall for the "scenic drive from the redwoods to Ferndale.'(Mattole Road) Pretty? yes. But it is a harrowing 3 to 4 hr. drive with cliff drop offs and nasty switchbacks that will test your brakes ability to keep you alive. Also be aware there is very little kitchen counter space and the hideaway bed is for little ones only. Overall great stay and the place was fine.

    • Manager Responded on 8/3/2015

      Thank you! Cream City Cottage is the perfect place to find solace. People just love it. It's nice to be able to take the bikes out and around Ferndale. The road you referenced is known as the Wildcat. It is very beautiful and perfect for a scenic day drive. However, it may not be the best way to get to Ferndale for the first time. It's better to take the 101. We look forward to your return.

    a guest from Canyon, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    We rented both the cottage and the apartment. Both were very nice, comfortable and well maintained and equipped. There were 4 younger adults and an older couple. The mother-in-law house was perfect for the old folks. We had a toddler with us and there were many amenities for children. The only quirk was that there wasn't a shade over the window overlooking the bed in the apartment. A blanket fixed this. Easy walk to the shopping district. I definitely recommend this property and would stay again.

    • Manager Responded on 7/27/2014

      Glad you had a great stay! I will mention the shade to the owners and they will have it taken care of right away! We do want you to come back any time at the Cream city cottage with Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals!
