Children of any age can stay in the Victorian Apartment.

Parents must supervise their children and keep them from running, jumping, and shouting while inside the house.


Regrettably, no pets are allowed.

Mobility and Medical Issues

We are NOT wheel chair accessible and stair climbing is required. There are:

  • 14 steps to our front porch from the sidewalk
  • 6 steps to our back door from our back driveway, and
  • 19 steps between the first and second floors.
  • The Rose room is the only guest room on the first floor.

As a result we are NOT suitable for those with mobility or medical issues who have difficulty climbing stairs.
