The Gatsby Mansion has just as much history as any of the larger hotels, but has so much more elegance and personal charm. As you walk in, you are immediately struck with the character of the home, and how it has been maintained with such care. The staff is right there, pleasant, accomodating and so very professional.
Our room had a view of the beautiful harbor, with planes landing on the water and the beautiful lights during the evening. It was obviously restored, and maintained to it's original style of 1890, yet is was so comfortable, that had we chosen to go nowhere, it would have been the perfect place to do nothing.
Being a Bed & Breakfast, I was even impressed with our breakfasts each morning, and the Sunday Brunch that is served in the regal style and elegance of the last century. Even though they have a wonderful dinner menu themselves, Selina, our host at the hotel, was quick to reccommend wonderful locations that, when I took her advice, proved to be the perfect choices for exactly what we were looking for.
My wife and I were treated like royalty. The staff showed real interest in insuring our stay was the best and went beyond what was needed to guarantee our happiness. For that alone, my wife and I were grateful, as they were sucessful.
We did not need the huge hotel, grandiose opulance, nor the price tag that comes with it. What we got was a first class, subdued luxury with an environment that was like being a personal guest in a friends home. All at a much better price than what we would have spent elsewhere.
So to sum it all up, one word comes to mind...elegance. Historic location and home, restored to original condition, staff that is first rate and personable too, all backed up with a price tag that would be expected at a location with much less being offered.
You will enjoy your visit.
