Our Ferndale "barndominium" is a tiny house located in downtown Ferndale, right along Main Street. It's furnished with upcycled items and is a cozy, welcoming and unique space to check out the "Victorian Village." Located behind the office of The Ferndale Enterprise newspaper, your hosts love to give their guests the "inside scoop" to Ferndale and the Lost Coast. Whether it's a quick overnight stop or you are looking for a longer stay of solitude, our Ferndale barn could be the perfect stop!
Our 420 sq. ft. barndominum — recently converted from a historic barn — is cozy and unique. Its location is prime; park your car behind the barn and enjoy the best of Ferndale at your doorstep by foot while still enjoying private country views to the rear of the property. The location is just steps away from Ferndale restaurants and shops. It's a great space to nestle into, especially during winter months next to the fireplace, or fling open our wood french doors in the spring and summer and take in the private half-acre field that adjoins a flowing Francis Creek. A combo living room/kitchen are downstairs; a bedroom with open bath/shower upstairs. (The living room corner couch converts to a double bed; probably just adequate for one person or two small children. We limit our space to three people, simply because it's not big enough for four adults and luggage.) The clawfoot tub/shower combo has a heated towel bar close by. (Toilet room has a door.) Downstairs has an electric fireplace and there is a space heater upstairs. We also have a heated mattress pad on the upstairs bed with dual controls. The barndominium is insulated; Ferndale winter nights (and summer, when the coastal fog hangs around) can get chilly. At night, our back field trees are lit up by white lights and by day, deer graze right outside the back deck. The space has wi-fi and our smart television offers Netflix, Amazon, etc. (We do not offer cable TV.) Live music is available at several venues just steps from the barndominium, as are eateries and great coffee shops.
Our guests are welcome to wander around our back half-acre property that is alongside Francis Creek.
As superhosts, we have learned that some guests want to interact and others prefer not to. We live and work on the property so we are always available to interact and, at the same time, willing to respect guests' privacy if so desired. Just let us know!
Please note that we host two Airbnbs on our property. Our main Victorian house sleeps five and our barn sleeps three. (Have a larger group? Consider renting both spots!) The two locations are separated by a large gravel driveway but if both places are booked, you may see/interact with other guests when they are coming and going. Your hosts also live on the property in an small apartment behind the main house when there are guests. (Also, infants are counted as guests in our listing.) We include the 12% Transient Occupancy Tax required by the city and county in our base price. If you want to work out while visiting Ferndale, the barndominium is directly across the street from Ferndale InLight Fitness gym. We have a guest key for a $10 visit to the gym. If you want to "work," during your visit, the living room's coffee table converts to an eating/laptop table.
NO SMOKING OF ANYTHING! If you smoke marijuana or cigarettes or vape please don't book our space. The smell lingers on your clothes (even if you smoke outside) and permeates our rental.
The barndominium is adjacent to a residential quiet neighborhood. We expect our guests to be quiet and respectful of our neighbors as well as our other guests who may be renting our main house. No smoking of anything inside or out.
