The Iris House - A Bed & Breakfast Mansion, Eureka, California

The Iris House - Eureka, California, USA - Travel, Bed & Breakfast

This spacious Victorian home was built in 1900 for William H. Haw, who served as the Humboldt County Clerk from 1899 to 1907 and who also operated a local rock quarry. Local builder Henry A. Poland designed and built this Queen Anne style house for the Haw family. The house embodies such typical Queen Anne characteristics as a juxtaposed roof line, faux balcony, Ionic columns, and stained glass windows.

In 1979 the house was purchased by Steven Gordon with the intention of making it into a bed and breakfast. Gordon's frustration in finding the hard-to-find items he needed to rennovate the house led him to start his own company, Restoration Hardware, which is now a nationwide enterprise. Finally, the house was converted into a bed and breakfast in the mid-1980s and has been restored to its original splendor and charm, with modern conveniences added. The interior features a ballroom that can accommodate up to 60 people seated and 80 standing for weddings and events.

The Iris House is the perfect place for a quiet getaway or for events such as receptions, weddings, business meetings, or family gatherings. The Iris House has three overnight accommodations equipped with private baths, televisions, Internet connectivity, and phones by request.
