Tesla High Power Charging Station at the Victorian Inn
June 23, 2014--The Victorian Inn, Redwood Suites and the VI Restaurant are excited to announce the installation of a Tesla High Power Charging Station on the premises of the Victorian Inn, 400 Ocean Avenue, Ferndale. The charging station will provide a convenient and fast charging solution for Tesla Model S owners staying in one of these two inns or while dining in their restaurant during the busy summer travel season.“We are continuingly searching new ways to enhance our guests’ overall experience. By combining the leading-edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to providing an exceptional experience for our guests, we now have the ability to offer a high-tech, eco-friendly solution for Model S owners traveling this summer,” said Lowell Daniels, co-owner of these three businesses.
“Guests can charge their car for a few hours, at no cost to them, while enjoying a bite to eat in our popular VI Restaurant & Tavern, or “fill it up” overnight while they enjoy the comfort of one of the great guest rooms. Driving a luxury car deserves a luxury experience, and we are pleased to provide that high quality experience to Tesla owners. It’s a win-win for everyone,” added Daniels.
The Tesla High Power Wall Connector offers more than twice the power of typical charging stations, adding up to 58 miles of range to the Model S in just one hour.
“Thanks to our growing Supercharger network, Tesla Model S owners are hitting the road in increasing numbers,” said Cal Lankton, director of global EV infrastructure for Tesla. “By offering a convenient destination charging service to Tesla owners, The Victorian Inn, Redwood Suites and the VI Restaurant are replicating the convenience our owners have become accustomed to at home. Waking up relaxed with a fully charged Model S makes for a fantastic road trip experience.”
The Victorian Inn is a 13-room inn was built entirely of native Humboldt County redwood in 1890. Known as Ferndale’s historic Russ Bank Building, it was a notable architectural testament to its time, a magnificent tribute to luxury, craftsmanship, and comfort. Each room has a unique story to tell, and the Inn has become one of the most photographed buildings in Northern California. Innkeepers Lowell Daniels and Jenny Oaks purchased the Russ Building in 1999. Today the inn embodies the elegance and romance of the timber boom era. High ceilings, vintage fixtures and furnishings, beautiful appointments and private baths typify the Victorian Inn’s nostalgic guest rooms. A stay at the Victorian Inn includes a gourmet breakfast, and the onsite VI Restaurant and Tavern serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks seven days a week.
Innkeepers Daniels and Oaks are active in the Ferndale community through their participation in the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce, Ferndale Rotary, Ferndale Repertory Theatre, Portuguese Hall Association, Humboldt County Convention & Visitors Bureau and other local organizations. They are passionate about promoting the local visitor industry. Dedicated to making each Ferndale stay a cherished memory, every day they look for new ways to encourage visitors to sample the adventures unique to the Redwood Empire and Pacific Coast areas that surround the Victorian Village of Ferndale.
