Step back into the Victorian era at this sumptuous inn on the National Register of Historic Places, which features fine antiques and reproductions, luxurious scented linens and down blankets on canopied beds; and a collection of original framed prints from Harper's scattered throughout. Ground-floor rooms are smaller but cozy, with exposed brick walls, beamed ceilings, and, in some cases, windows at eye level with the lush courtyard. Most rooms in the inn, which
occupies an 1838 mansion that once served as a bordello, have working gas fireplaces, and three have whirlpool tubs. The aroma of fresh flowers permeates the air. Afternoon tea is served on fine china, the evening social hour features hors d'oeuvres, and a full Victorian bar stocks boutique wines. In-room massage treatments can be arranged.
