This Inn has a rich history dating back almost to when Oriental was founded. It was built in 1903, and converted to a Bed and Breakfast over three decades ago. The Cartwright House is located in a peaceful residential neighborhood and just steps from the waterfront and Lou Mac Park. Restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Although breakfast varies daily, it is always substantial.The Inn's owners, Margaret and Johnny Reiswig, have refurbished and beautifully appointed the Cartwright House, reopening the Inn as a true bed and breakfast May 2015. We welcome you and look forward to your visit.

This was my grandmother’s house, I use to spend every summer there and I have so many wonderful memories. I’m so glad it’s being well taken care of and people are enjoying their stay. It is a very special house.

"3 floors. Room 5 is at the top of the house. Very fun. Feels like being on a yacht. Room 2 is largest and off the street."
"Irie is a huge space with extra seating, large jacuzzi bath & private entry!"
"We like kbed, hot tub, separate porch entrance so stay on main floor. Other guests raved about their crow's nest 'ship' room. I'd talk to Margaret and ask for what you like. Can't go wrong"
"Try the Crow's Nest room and sleep like a baby aboard a fine old ship."
"All of the rooms appear to have their own, unique charm. The entire house has a wonderful sense of peace, hospitality."
