We found this property on line and wanted to find something cute to stay in Virginia City and we found it. The house is amazing. The details are just fantastic from the outside structure, beautiful garden, paint, and beautiful decorations. Our host, Karen, was fantastic as well. She greeted us and poured us some wine. She made our dinner reservations and told us about the town and the house. The town is super small and walkable, so this is a perfect location.
The bathroom is a shared bathroom for the two rooms upstairs. But it is huge and luxurious. She prepared us an excellent breakfast that was ready for whenever we got up.
The only downfall was the big bed upstairs was a bit creaky for my husband to sleep. I didn't get a good sleep either but I don't blame the bed. However I was able to relax in her living room and read up on Virginia City history. The price seemed a bit high, although I actually don't know if it is the going rate in this famous little historical town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Gingerbread House was built in 1898 by one of Virginia City's most prominent citizens, C.W. Rank. This Victorian treasure is located just one block away from historic attractions, shops and restaurants. Karen's Cabins sit just to the back of the house each with its own charm and personality. ... more less
