Fodor's Review

Innkeepers Doug and Lily Vieyra have devoted themselves to honoring this National Historic Landmark by decorating it with authentic, Victorian-era opulence; and indeed, it seems that every square inch of the home—once owned by the town's millionaire real-estate sultan—is covered in brocade, antique wallpaper, or redwood paneling, and from every possible surface hangs a painting with gilt frame, or a historical costume. The Vieyras want their visitors not to just flop into bed, but to pretend they are the current inhabitants: drink tea in the parlor, play croquet on the lawn, select one of hundreds of period movies and watch it while the innkeepers wait on you in the sitting room. If you're ready, don your top hat or corset and embrace what Doug calls his "interactive living-history museum."
