About Stuart Altschuler

I am “big city” born and raised. I grew up in New York City and, after graduate school, lived 11 years in West Palm Beach, Florida before moving to Los Angeles in 1986. I realized that 21 years in LA was more than enough when I first set foot in Ferndale in October, 2006. One day was all I needed to realize that Ferndale was my new home! I put an offer on a fixer up-er, went back to LA, put my house on the market and told clients and friends that I was gone as soon as the house sold. I was living in Ferndale by the following Memorial Day, May 2007. I restored the 1896 Victorian. I settled into a small town routine and became a part of a new small town “family” as if this has been “home” all my life. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (CA License #MFC22030). I found a great job at the local community college, College of the Redwoods, where I do crisis intervention counseling, and started a private practice in Ferndale. I love it here and I know you will enjoy your stay in Ferndale. I am here to help make your visit in Ferndale a pleasant one, and I hope you enjoy your stay at Peaceful View Vacation Rental.

What makes this apartment unique

Nestled between the two redwood forests (The Sequoias to the North and the Coastal Redwoods to the South) is a thriving dairy community, and Northern California's best-kept secret, The Victorian Village of Ferndale. 'A genuine Victorian hamlet' (AP reporter Jennifer Marin), Ferndale has been dubbed 'the best preserved Victorian village in California,' by Los Angeles Times travel editor Jerry Hulse. Sunset magazine confirms that 'you can immerse yourself in Ferndale's Victorian spirit.'

Peaceful, quiet and close to a lot of fun things to do.

  • 5 of 5

First off the owner is awesome. He was friendly and helpful even before I decided to book. We are so glad that we did. Our 19 month old was a bit rambunctious and it was so nice not to have to stress on being in a hotel with thousands of other people. The apartment was clean, cozy and had everything we needed. The hot tub was amazing too. It was just like staying at a friend's house only with more privacy and better towels. Oh the towels...❤ We would definately recommend this location to others and hope to get a chance to stay again ourselves. Thank you to Stuart, the owner, for making our stay so enjoyable.

Owner's Response: JoAnne and Larry, It was a delight to host you and little Larry. Never heard him or any of you so rest assured. That is part of what having the apartment even a small distance from the back of the house perfect for you and me. You all are welcome back anytime. Thank you for your kind words and great review.

It's true to its name...Peaceful View

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Peaceful View in Ferndale, CA. After a good night's sleep, woke to a couple of grazing sheep and some deer in the adjoining yards. The accommodations are very comfortable and very well equipped. The kitchen has everything needed if you want to cook, but I preferred to join my family for meals. Would highly recommend Peaceful View and look forward to my next visit.

A Warm Welcoming Home when traveling in Ferndale and Northern Humbolt County

  • 5 of 5

This home is just a short pleasant walk from Ferndale's Main Street. I am recommending this to our friends and family. We were in the area for a Merry Christmas visit with our youngest son who lives in neighboring Fortuna. This is a warmly decorated studio apt with a big well supplied, clean Kitchen (important to me ) and full bathroom. It looks to be a recently renovated apartment on the back side of a beautiful Victorian Home. The upstairs apartment is up a well lighted stairway that leads to the door and to a big attached wooden patio overlooking a meadow/ pasture with deer and sheep (:)))) with a quiet peaceful melody of frogs. There is also a view of town lights and mountains from patio, beautiful. This home includes for your use a hot tub (in a down stairs garden/patio area ) well maintained and was kept pleasantly hot for our entire stay. There is a BQ for guests use in the down stairs garden next to hot tub but you can take it up to your patio if you wish. Our host was friendly, attentive and a good cook :) ( he shared his freshly baked date nut bread with us). I have to add here that he went beyond to find and kindly mail us some items we left behind, THANK YOU !! Stuart we did have a happy Merry Christmas Stay and well return. Thank you Paul and Martha Bogseth

Birthday Celebration

Pros~Clean, Good location.

Con~Not enough comfortable seating to unwind, relax or watch tv either inside or out. No coffee, tea or welcome basket. Outdoor flower pots had all dead foliage in them, not very appealing.

Owner's Response: Respectfully, I would like to respond to the issues mentioned in this review. As for a "welcome basket", none of the other vacation rentals that I checked with in Ferndale provide one either. When asked about coffee and tea, I offered to provide this for the guests when they asked but they told me it was OK since they brought it with them in their cooler, like most renters do. (there is coffee and tea in the apartment now). As for the chair, there is one very comfortable easy chair in this large Studio apartment and no place to add another. In 9 years of renting out this apartment, I have never had complaints like this. In fact, the guest book is filled with glowing comments and have had many return guests. As for the flower pots on the deck, it is true. When they arrived, the pots were not looking very good, sad to say. I had already scheduled a local person for the days after these guests left to completely redo the pots. You can tell from the pictures on my listing. I should have explained that to the guests and it has been corrected. I know you will enjoy the rental a great deal. It is near Main Street and the private hot tub is enjoyed by many. I am very accommodating to the needs and requests of my guests and I invite you to find out for yourself just how pleasant and relaxing the apartment is. I have had nothing but great reviews on another site and I am sure you will add your own here after your stay at Peaceful View Vacation Rental. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Stuart
