Fodor's Review

Colorful gardens border the driveway leading up to this 1890 home that is convenient to Parrsboro but also a great choice for active visitors—the hosts can organize golfing, kayaking, and hiking experiences for you. Antique furnishings, hardwood floors, and five fireplaces are a testament to its Victorian vintage, yet modern amenities (among them free Wi-Fi and four-piece bathrooms) ensure you never feel cut off from the present. The 2.5-acre property is ideal for strolling,

and guests are often seen relaxing on the front lawn or the marvelous veranda.
