“Scarlett House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

This is a true bed and breakfast. I have stayed in scores of rooms and the Scarlett House is one the few that lives up to the term of bed and breakfast. The rooms ( i peeked in the others) are wonderful and very clean. The house is a treasure of Victorian architetcural history. So is the neighborhood. The innkeeper is an expert on the local history.

No marketing, no strawberries dipped in chocolate (though I hear she'll do that). I felt at home. The price of the room is very fair (especially compared to the local hotels).

Finally, this is the first time I've ever extended my time at a B&B for an extra day. Just felt comfortable here.

We stayed here at the last minute instead of going to a hotel. The owner is quirky but fun. The rooms lacked privacy as there was nothing more than lace covering the windows. Which also made it difficult to sleep past 6 a.m. when the sun came up. Our room was on the east side of the house facing south so we had plenty of sunshine. Also, there was no shade in the shared bathroom, just a see through curtain on the lower half of it. And the shower curtain was clear. The lock on the bathroom door didn't work so my husband and I used the bathroom together - he put towels up over the window and we took turns watching the door. Not somewhere we would probably stay at again.

We stayed in the Garden Suite. Very pretty and victorian. Lots of area with a whirlpool tub.The B&B itself is very victorian. Average breakfast but good. The area of the house is in a neighborhood of improvement. The landscape and outside area of the home needs some TLC. Nice innkeeper. Nice to have a B&B that you can stay for one night.

We stayed in the Garden Suite - very pretty! The room is decorated in shades of lavender - comes with a queen bed, small tv, vcr and a connecting bathroom with a large whirlpool tub & shower. Total with taxes & all came to $130 p/n.

We stayed here for 1 night and enjoyed it. I could see a couple staying here for their honeymoon night or for a romantic anniversary. We booked via their web site - didn't receive any confirmation that the booking went through so I had to call the B&B directly the day of to make sure it did. It would have been nice to just receive a confirmation automatically by email but that's minor.

Downstairs is a small fridge that was stocked with Dr. Pepper, diet cokes & water. No other extra ammenties like robes, snackes, etc are really available. I'm not sure wine glasses or a corkscrew are available either. We didn't see any for our use but we planned ahead & had brought our own anyway so we didn't look too hard. Breakfast the next morning was blueberry pancakes with whip cream, sausage links, OJ & Coffee. A small supply of VHS tapes are available for those wanting to watch a movie in their room. There is a very sweet friendly dog in the house - didn't see that info on their web site but if you're allergic to animals you'd like to know that.
