This restored Victorian house is exceptionally appointed. Each guest is allowed complete run of the property. Each morning there is a great home cooked breakfast prepared by the owners. Guests are allowed access to an open bar. The location is within walking distance to the seawall and within close driving distance to The Strand. I highly recommend this B&B to... More

Mr. Clark, It was a pleasure to have you and your wife Carmen here for the weekend. I was delighted to play host for your daughter, Alana's special graduation celebration with family. Congratulations on the upcoming wedding, Ross will be a fine son-in-law. Enjoyed your son Aaron too. Although I am not the owner of The Lasker, I take great... More

This was by far the best B&B experience I've ever had, and I've stayed in many all over the country. The hosts were so kind and welcoming, and it really did just feel like a home away from home. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, and Richard's suggestions for restaurants in the area made sure our other meals were scrumptious as... More

The Lasker Inn is a beautiful throwback to a more elegant era! The lovingly restored property is absolutely amazing.

Richard is a fabulous host, taking such good care of all of us. Turn... More

The property is beautiful, cleaner than any B&B I've visited, the staff and Richard and Linda will bend over backwards to make you happy, the food is delicious, the large rooms are amazing, there is free wi-fi, and I could go on. You will love The Lasker Inn.

What a wonderful three night stay we experienced at this beautiful bed and breakfast! Our room had a separate sitting area with tv, and a wrap-around porch which overlooked the city. Fresh flowers upon arrival, and ice water, with fresh mint provided daily. Breakfasts consisted of delicious fresh fruit, yogurt with strawberries, blueberries, and granola, eggs in ham cups, biscuits,... More

This place is fabulous. Everything was perfect. Our room had a separate sitting are and access to the veranda and it was huge. The breakfasts were wonderful. We felt like we were at home. The owners go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. I can't say enough good things about this place. We will be back!

Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect. The grand suite was breathtaking and Richard went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. Wouldn't change a thing and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. Can't wait to go back one day!
