Meticulously restored by my family. This house just exudes a welcoming energy. Room is a fabulous mix of period pieces and modern amenities. All rooms have private bathroom, flat screen TV, free WiFi, queen bed, fine linens, comfortable chairs and AC
In the tower.
Parlors and porches open to my guests. Fun stuff to read about the house in the parlor.
Interaction with guests
I live here. I am available. Love to have great conversations.
Can smoke on porches. Service dogs always welcome. I have 1 cat and 1 dog, while they do not hang out in the rooms, my guests have been known to invite the felines in for a visit. I haven't had any one have an allergic reaction to my pets, but maybe choosing a pet free accommodation would better meet your needs. I do not have cots or rollaways available.

My parents bought this mansion back in 1978. It had been converted into apartments in the late 1930's. I was 15 and not happy to be moving into a house that had been unloved for 40 years. It was icky. But then the love began! Completely and meticulously restored to original grandeur. I really didn't think the mansion was going to be a part of journey, my parents were going to sell 12 years ago but didn't. This became our journey to care for them and the house after health issues came up with them 10 years ago. Reopening the Ferris Mansion Bed and Breakfast 6 years ago, I have made friends from all over the world. It is true that Rawlins isn't a destination town but it is a fabulous location because it is a nice days drive to Yellowstone/Jackson Hole Wy, Boise ID, Salt Lake City, UT, Denver CO, Mount Rushmore, SD and however far you want to drive into Nebraska. There are 2 fabulous mountain ranges and hour from here, Snowy Range and the Sierra Madre Mountain Range. Spectacular fishing on Platte or Encampment Rivers is a quick jaunt 40- 60 miles south. Just a block away is the Wyoming Frontier Prison and you can tour that in the summer.
