I had the pleasure of experiencing this19th century boutique hotel midweek in July and was surprised at how peaceful the surroundings were. At first look I thought it would be just the opposite. There were a few families with small children and it was located right off the street and across from a public park. However everyone seemed to be transported back to the Victorian Era where respect, patience and gratitude are admired qualities. This included both guests, owners and employees. There was a misunderstanding involving the room charge and the proprietor was extremely gracious finding a way to accommodate us so that our well needed retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life could come to fruition. Although off a street and nestled between other structures, it was extremely quiet. It was not a main road and the public park had at most 6 people at one time, usually people out for a walk alone or with their dogs. A quaint "main street" lies a few blocks away as well as the beach. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful with trees and flowering shrubs everywhere, even hanging planters full of seasonal blooms in all the eves. The dining area always had a fresh white rose every morning on each table with green leaved stems reminiscent of gardenias. Everyday pink lemonade, fresh brewed ice tea and assorted cookies, biscuits were out for a mid day snack. Breakfast was complimentary for us since we had a special package, but otherwise very affordable. It included assorted hot teas, coffee, yogurt, fresh fruit, granola, a variety of cereals, scones and muffins. Even bagels. And carry out cups were always available. Honestly it was the best continental breakfast I have ever seen in any hotel. Although built in the 1800's it was surprisingly well kept and beautifully furnished. I truly felt transported to a simpler time where time was precious and moments savored. We will definitely be returning.
