Excited to be staying at the bed and breakfast, I was not let down. The location is prime. Practically everywhere one would like to go is within walking distance; the beach, the "Washington Mall" (a long strip of stores a block away), sightseeing, and the other historic buildings. The lighthouse is not much further. Although the area is quiet you feel and know that you are in the muddle of everything.
The staff and owner are approachable. Trying to please the needs of their guests. The "Haunted Mansion" atmosphere is a little eerie but fun and enjoyable.
I had the pleasure of attending the Dinner Theater. The cast were hysterical and included you in the act. They were very friendly and down to earth. The food was good and the wait staff were placating.
The room was cozy. It truly fit the Victorian ambience. It would have been nice to have a little refrigerator (for a cold drink and a little sandwich or the like). Staying in the room felt inviting. It was beautifully decorated with charm of an era passed.
Breakfast in the morning served on the porch was both a comfort and a joy. An excellent way to start the day.
For those with a taste for the paranormal or those just seeking the experience of staying at a Victorian Inn, we HIGHLY recommend Elaine's.
