I grew up in Cambridge,MD and lived on the same block of Oakley St. (the street of Victoria Gardens) for my first 7 years there. I always wanted to go into this home as it was gorgeous from the outside but I never had the opportunity. I attended a wedding in Cambridge this past weekend and researched all of the B&B's in town. I always stay with friends when I return but this time I wanted to be on my own. I am familiar with all of the B&B homes in town and when I saw this home on the list I was thrilled. After many, many years I was finally able to go inside and I must say it's spectacular and better than I ever expected. Lynette Chase, the owner is fantastic and you will not find a better hostess. She is so accommodating and there is absolutely nothing that she leaves out. The rooms are very large, very clean, bright and filled with everything that one needs: robes, slippers, soaps, lotions, air conditioning, magazines, large thick towels etc. I felt as if I was in a luxury hotel! Lynette is extremely considerate and is always asking her guests if they would like some tea or coffee anytime during the day and evening. The house has at least 2-3 screened porches and when guests come home in the evening everyone is welcome to sit and chat. The house is on an acre of English Gardens that are glorious. When you walk into Victoria Gardens you feel as if the home and all of it's furnishings have been in Lynette's family for at least 80 years but she has only been the owner for 5 years. I can't image staying anywhere else in Cambridge and I am booking again for Labor Day Weekend. I had the best and most wonderful experience. Thank you Lynette for a lovely, lovely memorable 3 day weekend. PS: And it's right accross the street from the water!
