It's hard to believe that this house was abandoned and slated for demolition when it was purchased in 1994 and then carefully restored into the loveliest Victorian in Fort Bragg. Each of the nine guest rooms is colorful and tasteful, with hand-painted ceilings and deep, claw-foot tubs. The water tower—the tallest structure in town—provides ocean views from its second-floor hot tub and rooftop viewing deck. The stunning redwood-panel ballroom is the location for spirited
tango dancing events presented on some weekends by innkeeper Vivien LaMothe.
