My husband and I really enjoy finding out-of-the-way hotels and B&Bs. After finding Laurium/Victorian online, I booked a room at the Victorian B&B (across the street and a little bit cheaper). When you arrive, you're supposed to walk across the street and check in at Laurium. The very kind girl at the front desk informed us that we were the ONLY PEOPLE staying at Victorian that night (CREEPY!!!) so they were going to let us choose any open room at Laurium, no extra charge!
It's gorgeous and old. It smells old, but we didn't mind. Bedding was beautiful, bed was comfortable. Yes, there are cracks and stains, but the house is ancient, what did you expect? We loved the old books and magazines in the foyer, enjoyed touring the Victorian across the street - guests are trusted and it felt like we were in a friend's home. I even pulled a cake out of the oven when the timer went off and the baker was not close by! Walked downstairs for breakfast at 8am and were the only people there - cook was friendly, food was plentiful. We'd love to return!
