these are some of the hundreds of comments written in Gingerbread Mansion’s guest books, although we would have loved to list all of them as we greatly appreciate each and every guest’s thoughts and feelings of gratitude from their joyous memories here, we are sharing with you some of these testimonials from our collection from past to present to give you a good idea of the overall feel and response from guests.  We are honored to have been the recipient of so many accolades and above all to add such value and richness of joyous memories during their visit at the Mansion and Ferndale.

From the arrival to the departure and everything in between was perfect.  We stayed in the serene, aerie that is Veneto.  We where warmly welcomed, courteously treated, and made to feel at home.   An accidental discovery and a priceless gem.  And Harry’s stories were great too!

We are fascinated with the fine and artistic woodwork & furnishings of Gingerbread Mansion! We love Victorian style, old houses and have tried to stay in one almost every trip we take.  The entire town of Ferndale should be proud to have kept so much of its history alive today! Thanks for the memorable stay!

We come all the way from Sarasota FL to explore “The Last Frontier”. The charm and authenticiy of “The Gingerbread Mansion” are evident.  The breakfast was great, the bread excellent, and the service extraordinary.

If only Grandma could have entertained this way.  It was a wonderful change to travel back in time (but with all the amenities of modern day). The staff where warm and friendly.  Our room, quaint and cozy.  Tea time cookies divine.   The whole experience deserves an encore.
