This B&B is one of the most amazing places that we have stayed. The “Rose” room is probably the most romantic & beautiful room here. We were greeted very warmly when we arrived. Thank you Ferndale and especially The Gingerbread Mansion for your hospitality and warmth.

I’ve been a businessman for over 40 years and most of my business has been done abroad, therefore hotels are just like a my 2nd home. I’ve never been in a hotel as unique and simple and yet as outstanding as this one. I’m amazed to see so many details of good taste.

To all the staff of the “Gingerbread House” you are a as beautiful and elegant as the home your serve. It was a joy to spend our 24th anniversary at Ruby’s favorite Victorian home. The meals were all excellent and plentiful. We will definitely recommend “The Gingerbread House” to friends and family. With a California hug we will say “Goodbye” for now. With love.

See the graceful cursive comments above? Many children and young adults can no longer decipher these words. So cursive, likes horses and carriages, bustles and corsets. sitting straight and pouring tea, are moving into what what we call history – the past. Thankfully this example of the Victorian era survives. It allows us a short travel through time. We’ve loved our stay here at the Gingerbread Mansion and wish it it good health and prosperity during its next hundred year of painted glory.
