Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

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: /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: /events for info on Ferndale Events.

Reviewer Comments:

As a pair of traveling cousins, the Cream City Cottage was a perfect fit for us. It is just a few blocks to town and in a quiet neighborhood. We were greeted with a warm fire and soft music on the TV. It was a little cool for us to make a fire in the outdoor fireplace as we were there late October and we were out and about for most of the day anyway but it was all set with wood ready to go. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. If we are ever in the Ferndale area again we would definitely return to Cream City Cottage.

Reviewer Comments:

When entering the house there was a very strong chemical odor in the house. This was very strong and lasted about two hours. Until the odor gradually disappeared I was unsure if we could stay in the home. The maintainance of in the kitchen was poor. Another concern is that the tub surface was very slippery and a bath mat was not provided. Due to this problem, my husband did not use the tub. This our stay was short this did not concern him. Also the stairs entering the house were difficult to use especially when exiting the house. The comfort of the furniture was okay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this constructive review. We appreciate you giving us the opportunity to improve. The smell was likely pine sol as we had just finished making the place sparkle for you arrival. All of accommodation have a hotel style bath mat that comes with the linens provided. Our Apologies if this was not readily available for you in the bathroom. It is important to know if out guest have special needs. Had we know we could've made special arrangements to accommodate you and your husband in a much better fashion. Nevertheless, we appreciate you taking the time to write this review and look forward to accommodating you in the future.
