We recently stayed at the Gingerbread Cottage in Victoria and loved it! We were only there for one night but wish we could have stayed longer. The house is very cute- we stayed in the Mozart room which was nice and clean.
Breakfast was amazing! Vanessa was so accommodating and prepared breakfast early for us so we could get on the road before 9 am. She also took food allergies into consideration and prepared a spectacular shrimp omelette. Other choices included green eggs and ham and strawberry dumplings. The Gingerbread Cottage is a great choice for those on a budget- clean and affordable. The location is good as well- we were able to walk to town in about 20 minutes.
