HOME AWAY FROM HOME We became hosts to share our home with travelers as a way to meet new people & to make sure the weary travelers have a place that feels like home to stay in. We want our guests to enjoy a home cooked meal, conversation & stay in a warm cozy room. To give that person a bit of family time, even if it isn’t their own family. When you’re on the road for a while, you start to miss that. So even if your stay here is brief we want you to feel as if you ARE a part of it!
“I chose to stay at Misty's for a variety of reasons. The price was great, the location was perfect, and there were pictures of baby bunnies in the profile. The first night I was there I went straight to bed, despite the family's warm welcome and invitation to join them for a little TV watching. I was exhausted and passed right out. The next morning there was coffee. I ran to the beach (5.5 miles from Misty's house!) and back again, across beautiful country filled with animals and Victorian houses. Drivers were very cautious with a runner on the road and everybody I talked to was delightful. When I got back Misty made more coffee for me, offered me the shower, and was quiet when I fell back asleep...ha. She provided food before I went out for a massage and made me feel right at home. The town of Ferndale is charming as can be, and Misty's house is close enough to walk or bike into downtown. The houses around are fantastic and the second day of my stay, Misty took me to visit a dairy before we biked around town together. I have only about a million food restrictions but Misty listened to me and checked in, producing an absolutely wonderful dinner one night that I could eat with her and her family. All in all, I held a million rabbits, enjoyed Misty's family (thanks for the Valentine's day chocolates!), had plenty of solitary time and as much companionship as I desired. Misty is an absolutely wonderful host and if you're looking for a warm & welcoming farm stay, this is the place for you.”
This is one of two rooms in my house available for guests. A very small, but cozy room, once used as my husband's den/collection space. There are still a few tools visible. Cable TV, private bathroom is a door away. A portable heater available if needed. it is at the rear of the house,has a separate outside entrance. Motorcycles and bicycles may park in my garage Should you need 2 beds you might check the availability of my other room "RELAXING IN THE HEART OF THE VILLAGE".
“Eunice is a wonderful host! She has a very warm and friendly personality, as well as a very nice home. My bed was very comfortable, plenty of closet space, and a television. I had my own bathroom with shower. Everything was clean, neat and very nice. Eunice was so sweet to offer breakfast and delicious coffee in the morning. I would love tostay with her again, and have time to visit with her more. She has a wealth of information she loves to share.”
The Beauregard, built in 1893, is a quaint 2 bedroom Victorian house in the historic village of Ferndale. The home has been lovingly furnished with antiques & reproductions and the gardens are carefully maintained. The back patio has a water fountain and dining set. A popular burger stand is next door and downtown Ferndale, with its Victorian architecture, shopping, dining, historic museum and parks is 0.6 miles away.
“It was such a pleasure to stay at the Beauregard! The house has been beautifully done with many touches that focused on its Victorian start - but nicely updated and very comfortable. Jean has done a lovely job of adding a batch of personal touches such as cookies on our arrival, stocking the coffee/tea supply with soy and almond milk (and half and half), as well as having coconut milk and tazo chai available. There were a number of cold drink sections in the fridge, and even some frosted beer mugs in the freezer! And everything is perfectly labeled, so you don't have to open every drawer and cabinet looking for scissors, or a mixing bowl - very nice touch! The house was lovely and comfortable! The gas fireplace was a toasty treat for the living room, where we all read and napped one late afternoon. We brought our slippers to protect the beautifully finished floors. We didn't cook any meals, but I LOVED the Heartland stove! I actually sent a picture to my mom who is looking to redo the kitchen in her old house. There was a selection of DVDs to watch - but we chose Outbreak. We were surprised that it had not yet been opened, but then realized that most people may not know it was filmed in Ferndale, so it was super fun to watch from that perspective alone! It was the perfect place to have a low key and relaxing weekend with our family! I highly recommend it! Thank you, Jean!”
