Fodor's Review

This house was named in honor of author Robert Louis Stevenson, who boarded here briefly in a tiny upstairs room. Items from his family's estate furnish Stevenson's room; period-decorated chambers elsewhere in the house include a gallery of memorabilia and a children's nursery stocked with Victorian toys and games. Except on Saturday from April through August, the building is open only for special tour requests (call for times and fees), but you can stroll around the gardens.
