From a Victorian point of veiw

I have stayed and fellowshiped with the Nona and Richard, very wonderful people very accommodating. My heart stays there at the inn and I loved to visit whenever possible. I love being part of the history that radiates from the walls of this beautiful inn. In the day and age of the IKEA empires, the opportunity to relive the passions and the beauty that these two put in to this inn is amazing. Really miss TEDDY!

Delightful Sty

I stayed in the smallest room (be warned, the bathroom is not connected; it's a few feet away, right off the dining/entertaining area, so it might be awkward if the place were full of people you don't know). That said, I had no problems with it and I think the room is great--it has both a stained glass window and a door to a private deck outside. I love the fireplaces that come on with a switch, and the remote-control heating was easy to regulate. It was about a ten-minute walk to the beach, which was fine with me, as I love walking. Dozens of stores and restaurants are an even shorter walk--just a few blocks away. The owners were great, very accommodating, and the breakfasts were excellent. I went there to write and it worked--I got a lot done--and I will most likely go back. -A.C., Pasadena, CA

First Bed and Breakfast stay

Wonderful place! My boyfriend and I happened upon this place completely by accident and decided to stay when we heard it had a history of being haunted. We stayed in the Victorian Rose room which was beautiful! The owners, Richard and Nona, were wonderful hosts. They had live entertainment Saturday night with appetizers and wine! The breakfast they served was delicious. We really enjoyed the uniqueness of the building. We will go back soon!

A little quirky

The inn keepers were very pleasant. This was the most unique B&B we've stayed at and was a good location & walking distance from downtown. Noise from the streets was a little loud and no curtains on the windows made for bright light in the early morning, but a comfortable bed. Not spotless, but clean.
