Property description

Come to Eureka's Victorian seaport in the heart of California's Redwood Coast and enjoy our Grand Victorian home, originally built in 1887 for a Sea Captain by a master shipbuilder. Lovingly restored by a Navy family, keeping its Victorian Virtue but christened with nautical charm. A lovely Garden in back fully compliments the restorative nature of this home. Just a few blocks to historic OldTown, shops and restaurants but in a quiet, residential neighborhood. The Ship's Inn, a stand alone vacation rental, offers a peaceful retreat for adventurers to the redwoods, beachcombers, art buffs or outdoorsy folks.

The home was transformed this year from a B and B to a vacation rental. You will enjoy all the charm of a well cared for home and the privacy of a vacation rental.

A quick walk to old town and centrally located near all of the Northcoast's attractions.

This beautiful home boasts 3 bedrooms, 1 king master suite, 1 queen suite and the 'rose room, a queen room fit for royalty with it's own bathroom just across the hall.

Each bathroom has a 6 foot clawfoot tub with a shower combo and there is a 1/2 bath down stairs for convenience.

The Inn has a huge kitchen, a game room and 2 more formal parlors.

Once you visit the Ship's Inn and our charming Victorian Seaport, you will fall in LOVE with Eureka and be sure to return.

Owner info

About the owner: This is Heidi's 4th local vacation property, all have their own unique charm. An Engineer and Building Scientist by trade, Heidi is the Owner of Eureka Vacation Rentals and the President of Westside Community Improvement Association, a neighborhood group that is resurrecting an abandoned neighborhood school (Iefferson) and building a free public park and community center just down the street from this home. Heidi has a commitment to neighborhood improvement and historic preservation which is exemplified by her properties and her work.

Why the Owner Chose Eureka:
Heidi owns the Pink Craftsman nextdoor and could notbear to see this one stand empty ornot be loved. The 2 properties (the Pink Craftsman and The Ship's Inn were historically adjoining properties, built by the same master shipbuildier and owned by the same family. It only made sense to adopt the Ship's Inn into the Eureka Vacation Rental Family

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The hidden treasures of this home are in the details of the wood work, the beautifully preserved woodwork and Victorian Craftsmanship.
