I was introduced to the Victorian Inn and Marcy about three years ago and I keep returning each year. It is hard to add to all the excellent reviews to date and I completely agree with them. Marcy, the hostess, is a friendly, caring and very interesting lady. Be sure to ask about her adventures after Hurricane Ike! Her breakfasts are served buffet style and are delicious. One of my main criteria about a B&B or a hotel is cleanliness. This house is pristine and beautifully decorated. In addition to the spacious rooms, it is relaxing to sit in the living room,enjoy a board game, read a book or look at all the beautiful antiques. I also love a good porch and this inn has a spacious one and is truely a joy on a good weather day. There is a wide variety of rooms that accomodate any need. This Inn is a true survivor of the Island and is one of the few structures that still remains on the island that survived the 1900 Hurricane, so if you are interested in the island or hurricane history, this is worth a tour. Marcy also has a survivor, of sorts, from Hurricane Ike in the form of a beautiful angel in the garden. It was carved from an oak tree that did not survive the storm. It is one of several such carvings that can be toured on foot from the Inn. I highly recommend staying at the Victorian Inn and know you will not be disappointed. When you go, tell Marcy hello for me and I'll be seeing her soon!
