Romantic Victorian guest rooms

A guest room

Each of the eight guest rooms is uniquely arranged with Victorian charm. Large, comfortable beds with crisp linens allow you to enjoy a wonderful night’s sleep. Private baths, air conditioning, cable TV, and high-speed wireless internet access are included with each room as well.

If budget is a concern, you can choose “all the frills” or “no frills” for your stay to manage your costs. The “all the frills” option includes daily housekeeping and breakfast; the “no frills” option limits these services to a change of towels and no breakfast (you get to make your bed). The choice is yours to make.
