This exuberant 1892 Queen Anne Victorian house was built by Dr. Isaac Porter Primrose, and was once the Doctor’s office and the home of his family. The house has fabulous oak trim and floors, colorful stained glass transoms, and original oak kitchen cabinets with marble countertop. After being a residence for well over a century, the house has now been completely restored as a Bed and Breakfast. Four colorful Guest rooms offer private baths, several of which have required very creative plumbing! We have restored the walled garden and added off-street parking, a back porch, a brick patio and a wood deck, as well as a cute garden shed with another porch for additional outdoor seating. This former barren space is now entirely planted with flowering and fruiting trees, shrubs and perennials to attract birds, bees and butterflies. We are especially courting the Monarch butterflies which are 90 percent extinct; and have had good success by planting several varieties of the milkweed plant, their only food source.
This first floor room was once the formal parlor and offers a king bed in a big bay window with stained glass. A white leather loveseat basks in the warmth of an electric insert in the beautiful oak fireplace. It has a large private bath in the long-ago doctors office with a tub-shower built into a gazebo.
Once the master bedroom, this spacious second floor room offers a King bed, a sitting area in a large bay window with stained glass, and the original bathroom with its big vintage cast iron tub and shower.
Cute and cozy, this room offers a queen bed, a small “boudoir rocker” and an unusual corner shower.
Check out Shakespeare’s Hamlet for the origin of the name of this colorful room with queen bed and handcrafted quilt. See how we found extra space for a full bathroom!
