Creekside Cottage is a newly renovated, light and airy one bedroom cozy house in downtown historic Ferndale. Inside you'll find the original rustic redwood plank flooring and ceiling beams, with a brand new modern farmhouse kitchen and sparkling new bathroom. It's a great location for two people and has a small back deck overlooking Francis Creek. You'll never want to leave!

The space
We recently completed renovating the separate carriage house/workshop/garage space of a late 1800's home in Ferndale, California to make this beautiful new cottage. We restored the original wide plank redwood flooring throughout and added a brand new kitchen and bathroom.

The one bedroom cottage has Wi-Fi, cable, and a large Roku-enabled television. There is a queen bed and a wardrobe, separated visually from the kitchen/living space by the sliding barn doors from the original workshop. The bathroom has a shower and tub combination with on-demand hot water, tile floor, and a marble vanity. Though there are many updated amenities, you'll find there is still some rustic charm.

Enjoy your morning coffee at the kitchen island seating area or out on the back deck overlooking Francis Creek. The fully-equipped kitchen has dishes, pots and pans, toaster, oven, and microwave. There's a grocery store one block away for groceries, or head out to the local cafes down the street for a hearty Ferndale breakfast.

This cottage is ideal for two, but, if necessary can accommodate a third person or child on the futon sofa in the living room. There is parking in the driveway right in front of the Creekside Cottage. The cottage is behind another home, but has its own driveway entrance and access.

Guest access
The entire cottage and the back deck off of the cottage overlooking the creek are for guests' use. The cottage is down a driveway behind the main house, on Airbnb as "Ferndale's Francis Creek Retreat".

Other things to note
This is absolutely NO SMOKING of anything and no VAPING property. If you smoke, this is not the place for you, as the smoke odor lingers on clothing and then is tracked into the house. Thanks for respecting our request.

Please note, the nightly fee already includes 12 percent city and county taxes.

Location

Ferndale, California, United States

The house is located in historic downtown Ferndale in a quiet neighborhood. It is steps from multiple fantastic local restaurants, bars, and our city park. We are happy to give recommendations for where to eat around town. Less than a minute walk is the local grocery store with a deli and meat counter, liquor store, pharmacy, butcher, and tons of great local shops. The house is near the park on the edge of town, which has a baseball diamond, playground area, and bocce ball courts.
There are many great local day trips, such as our close beach only five miles away, day hikes, breweries, and the scenic drive to Petrolia and the Lost Coast. Humboldt Redwoods State Park is 30 minutes south on Highway 101.
