“Disappointed in the Victorian”
Reviewed October 24, 2008

We just spend a weekend at the Victorian Bed & Breakfast and had booked the fall romance package get away. Yes, Ann is friendly and accomodating. The breakfasts are filling. However, ...

The rooms are romantic if you like painted particle board and an unfinished bathroom door that does not lie flush at the top. Also, the door to the rest of the house, while curtained and not able to be seen through, had a tall window in the middle, like an exterior door. It opened to the end of the large gathering room. We also were disappointed with the "included dinner." We were given a gift certificate and dinner was included in the package as long as we stayed within the constraints of the gift certificate. Dinner was at a nicer restaurant, which is what we wanted since we were celebrating our anniversary. However, once you order an appetizer (which we shared), entrees and desert, it's very easy to exceed the $50. I would have preferred a limited menu or a preselected offering that the b&b was willing to pay.

We are not wine drinkers, so Ann provided a bottle of sparkling grape juice. It was delicious. But, when you realize it came from Aldi, it just does something to the ambiance.

The house is centrally located but sits right on a 4-lane road. It also gave us pause when we saw a for sale sign out front. Also, if you have pet allergies, this is not the place for you. We saw a large dog, and one evening, when I left the room for a warm drink I left the door open a crack. My husband, who hates cats, was reading in bed and was startled and dismayed when one came in and jumped up on him.

We thought the romance package was overpriced. We have no intention of returning.

Ann is top-notch when it comes to hosting a B&B. While my wife at the time may be gone (everyone laugh), the Victorian Inn was spectacular. We stayed twice and fell in love with the place instantly. Marblehead Lighthouse (A MUST SEE!) is mere minutes from the Inn.

The breakfast is superb, and the rooms are clean, comfortable and inviting. You feel very comfortable while staying there. I highly recommend staying with Ann at the Inn. Summer or Winter can provide a beautiful backdrop and a year-round friendly community. It is a slice of small town America at its best folks.

Make sure to see the lighthouse, the winery, Cedar Point (if open), Johnson's Island, and Put-In-Bay. So many things to do!!!

I would love to go again, just awkward nature of having had a past wife join me there.....*sigh*....

Hope this helps out gang-
Mike

You need to stay with Ann at this fantastic B&B. The full breakfasts are second to none and the accommodations are very clean, comfortable, modern, and relaxing. The location is not more than 5-10 minutes from everything in the area--beach, lighthouse, shopping, fishing, ferry to islands, restaurants, state parks, etc. Ann is very accommodating and will make you feel very welcome. The price is very reasonable and she has wonderful special deals also. Check out her website for details.
