Registered Veterinary Technician, Chris P., recently wrote in to tell us about her visit to Ferndale, a charming, dog-friendly destination in Humboldt County. Here's what she had to say:
Ferndale is a wonderful, self-billed Victorian village located in Humboldt County. Its Main Street is filled with a variety of businesses including artisan shops, upscale dining, an art gallery, cowboy bar, local department store, and a wonderful theater for live entertainment.
I love that all of the businesses in Ferndale are locally owned. We loved the Chicken Pot Pie at the Ferndale Omelette Factory
, and the cherry pie from the Ferndale Pie Company
was divine. The beautiful Shaw House Inn
allows dogs. There is even a little patio so your dog has outdoor access. And, there is excellent veterinary care in this tiny town at the Ferndale Veterinary
, which also offers boarding if needed (not a fancy boarding facility, but very clean).
The ocean beaches just outside of town are dog-friendly, as are many of the river's shores. You cannot go wrong here; there simply is no room for mediocrity in this old-fashioned slice of Americana.
