Banker Ira C. Russ, charmed by the area, moved to Ferndale in 1890 and created this detailed monument. His magnificent tribute to luxury, comfort and craftsmanship is built entirely of native redwood and remains a historic and notable architectural testament to its time. One of the most photographed buildings in Northern California, the Inn embodies the elegance and romance of the timber boom era, as every room has a unique story to tell.

Located in the scenic redwood coast area of Northern California, Ferndale is one of the best preserved enclaves of Victorian architecture on the west coast. Nowhere else will you find such a well preserved Victorian small town atmosphere. Main Street, lined with ornate Victorian commercial buildings, still functions much like it did during the Victorian period, with a hardware store, drug store, saddlery, mercantile, banks, hotels, and saloons. Ferndale is such a rarity, it has been used as the location for several movies, the latest being The Majestic, starring Jim Carrey. Ferndale is located in the scenic Redwood Coast area of Northern California, 5 miles off of Highway 101. Ferndale is just south of Eureka, about 5 hours north of San Francisco, and two hours south of the Oregon border. Forbes Magazine named Ferndale as one of 11 of America' s Prettiest Places.
