My husband and I took a trip last year to Victoria from our home in California to celebrate the wedding of some dear friends. We expected romance and love to be the theme of the weekend but didn't expect it to be such an amazing and romantic getaway for us. From our first view of the Humboldt House, we had the feeling that we had stumbled onto a gem.
The small B & B is located within walking distance of everything Victoria has to offer and yet is tucked away in a neighborhood far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Upon entrance, we were invited to the front library where we were met with homemade cookies and little snuffers for port. It was so nice to sit in the warm room after a long day of travel. When we were led down the hall to our room by the owner, we got to peek in to some of the different rooms, each with a unique style of their own. When we got to our room, my breath was taken away. Our room had a beautiful big bed with a white canopy and beautiful lace sheets and pillows. There was a fireplace in the room as well as a jacuzzi tub. My husband and I were so excited to get to stay in such an exquisite room for a few days.
That night, we were invited to take a look at the menu for the next morning and mark down what we wanted. The owner of the B & B is an amazing cook and baker and makes all of the breakfast items himself. Each room has a little keyed hole in the wall which allows your breakfast to be placed "inside" of your room with out disturbing you until you are ready to eat, at which time you open the little door on the inside of your room and pull out your goody basket. Each morning we were greeted with a little picnic basket with sweet floral place settings, coffee, orange juice, milk, etc. and the most delicious breakfasts. It was like having a personal chef to start each day in the privacy of our little secret getaway.
All in all, staying at the Humboldt House was an experience we won't soon forget.
I cannot wait to go back to the Humboldt House and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a quick getaway, an amazing honeymoon or a chance to just relax in a place that feels both luxurious and completely comfortable.
