As you enter The Victorian Rose from the large wrap around porch, let your mind go back to a different age and time!

William McKinley is President of The United States, but Queen Victoria and England have the greatest influence on the architecture, decor, and dress of the period.

As you enter the library (stocked with books for your browsing) through the pocket doors, you will see the English Lincrusta wall covering installed at construction in 1897.

After going through the elegant living (gathering) room with a large fireplace and up the main stairway, you will see the beautiful three section stained glass window at the top of the stairway. What a beautiful site with the late afternoon sun streaming through it. You can also see the stained glass Victorian Rose in a bathroom window.

Doris Tyson has taken these basics and transformed them not into a Victorian Museum, but into a live, vibrant and new Victorian Home.

Modern amenities include A/C, TV's, clock radios, hair dryers, curling irons, ceiling fans, 1 VCR, and private baths.

"Where our guests are like family"
