The mansion is not in a safe area. In fact, there's a boarded up house next door. So don't plan on walking around. We were met at 4:30 by the hostess, in tshirt and socks, and were scolded for the first of several times for knocking at the side entrance (near parking lot) instead of the front door. We were...

So what really makes a area safe? Did something bad happen to you that you make this claim? The house next door has 2 windows that is half boarded up. And is in the process of being restored. This mansion is my home - socks are NOT allowed? Normally, our guests come to the front door, not the back door,...

We had a wonderful stay in the Mollie Suite. Laura was so friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was AMAZING. So delicious. I had the homemade crepes and my husband had a yummy hashbrown, ham, egg concoction. Can't remember er the name of it.

My wonderful daughter-in-law treated me to Low Tea here on March 3. The hostess was attentive and fun to talk with but not hovering; tea was steeped perfectly and was delicious; and the treats on our tray were yummy and sufficient for my sweet tooth. You're so lucky to have this wonderful tea room in your area, and I hope...

We came with a group of 7 family members for High Tea to celebrate a 60th birthday! The teas and finger foods were all delicious!! We all enjoyed the "Language of the fan" talk that Laura gave while we dipped on more tea. Rick and Laura answered all of our questions about the mansion. The period clothing that they both...

My husband and I were disappointed by the lack of transparency on just where this B&B was situated in terms of the location and neighborhood. The house alone is okay (though property had scrappy-looking scaffolding against the house visible from the street and an old box-spring sitting out in the yard at the end of the back drive-way where guests...

Thank you for sharing your feelings. But we feel that you are being a bit judgmental. If this was not a safe area, we would not live here. Yes there are many people who are walking the street. In our neighborhood, if people are walking around it is a sign that the neighborhood itself feels safe. Are you claiming that...

Bottom line....the attitude and honesty of the woman inn keeper (not the man) sucks, and waaaayyyyy over priced for what you get. Will not recommend to anyone or return, mainly do to the woman inn keeper. Details of my experience are the following: Three of us booked the "High Victotian Tea" over the phone. While I was looking for directions...

Hostess okay. Husband is just an awesome guy, and I loved conversing with him. We were there for a Victorian Christmas dinner with six others. The food was average at best (chicken was tough, soup was lukewarm, salad okay, dessert table very nice). The service of the table waiters was exemplary. The home, what we saw of it, was beautifully...

Our group of 12 enjoyed high tea and had the most marvelous experience at Schuster Mansion today! We were all thoroughly impressed! As a group of Home Stagers, Interior Designers, and Realtors, we really could appreciate how the owners and our hosts, Rick and Laura, have brought back the beauty, glory, and historic integrity to this fabulous home.

Not being a B&B type Laura Sue and Rick have swayed my opinion since this weekend's visit to the Schuster Mansion. Their teamwork and mutual passion for what they do and provide is crystal clear and inspiring on both a business level but even more so their great role models to couples of what mutual passions and teamwork can do...

My first high tea was on Victoria Island, Canada and yesterday we enjoyed Victorian high tea at the Schuster Mansion. Our host and hostess made us feel welcome, and obviously enjoy sharing the history of the mansion with their guests. The mansion was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season.
