Great Breakfast!

If you like lovely old Victorian houses you'll love this one. Very charming and comfortable and the breakfasts were rich and filling.

A most beautiful and well-appointed inn

4.6 on August 17, 2014

Simply stunning interior. We were fortunate to be there when there were no other guests, so we were able to see all 5 rooms. They're all stunning. The public spaces are also charming and comfortable. We spent a bit of time in the "Games Room" playing pool. It was nice to have something to do with our teenager besides watch TV. Something for everyone at this place. I wish Eureka was more of a destination than a stop-along-the-way. One could have a lovely vacation using the Cornelius Daly Inn as a home-away-from-home.

Really nice historic building

4.6 on August 16, 2014

The building is amazing with a lot of beautiful historic details. Room was clean and bed really comfortable. Breakfast tasty and served at 8.30 sharp. After the breakfast we even got a guided tour through the building and it's history. Would return!

Great value and experience

Bob who runs the inn was a great host and cook. It is a great value in town compared to the hotels in the area and about a 5-10 minute walk to old town. If you want to retire from the city the inn has a game room or garden to relax and entertain. Overall it is a beautiful house with history and a great experience.

Thank you for your genuine hospitality

We had a beautiful room- confortable and cosy. With the input of our hosts we were able to explore the local area and the Redwood Forest we were so charmed by our stay- great food at breakfast and we had wonderful meals at night in restaurants in the Historic Area- thank you !

Close to Red Wood National Forest

Excellent location in the center of the redwoods. Avenue of the Giants to the south and Redwood National Forest to the north.

Absolutely fabulous in every way. .

Gorgeous old house, impeccably clean, tidy and comfortable. Quiet comfortable room, comfy bed and linens, antique furniture everywhere. Fabulous breakfast, delightful dining companions, perfect hostess. This is what a great B & B should be. If you are anywhere near Eureka, you MUST stay here.

Eureka for Cornelius

4.0 on July 29, 2014

We stayed in the master bedroom. It was quite spacious and well appointed . My only quibble is that the bathroom is not attached to the room. It is private but you have to leave your room to use it. It is however a good size bathroom. The breakfast was excellent. There are large common areas. One even has a large billiard table. The house itself is impressive and has a lovely outdoor area if you want to sit outside. All in all it was a great value.

Redwood Forest

What a fun trip I had with my family. We stayed a few days at the B&B and was surprised to learn the history of the house. The owners are amazing. The food, just as amazing. I have two young kids and they loved the game room. A nice place to stay if you don't want to camp in the redwood forest north of town. I do recommend this B&B. Also a great place for small groups.

lovely experience

4.6 on May 31, 2014

We enjoyed the garden, the off-street parking, and the amazing quiche for breakfast. The hardware throughout the house makes the house feel like a museum. I haven't seen push button light switches since I visited my aunt's farm house in Ohio in the 60's. Apparently Restoration Hardware started out of the Victorian across the street. Be sure to ask the host about it. Speaking of which, both hosts were great. The made us feel comfortable without falling all over us. Overall a very lovely experience. Thank you!
