My boyfriend surprised me by taking me to The Gingerbread House, blindfolded for my birthday. When he removed the blindfold, I was elated to see such a beautiful place all lit up with Christmas lights and decorations. It was such a wonderful sight. I couldn't wait to enter and see the beauty inside. We were greeted by the owners, Joan and Fred. They were such wonderful hosts. The rooms are immaculate and decorated very tastefully in a Victorian style. It was very warm and made you feel like it was home. In the morning, Joan would make tasty breakfast delights with fresh fruit and coffee. They were also available to us to give recommendations for places to go to see or eat. I would recommend The Gingerbread House to anyone. I know that we will definitely plan another trip there some day.
