The grand, three-story 1887 Victorian-Craftsman hybrid where the Bissell vacuum company heiress once lived on “Millionaire’s Row,” tucked behind hedges on Orange Grove Avenue, is now a classic B&B with a full complement of antiques and chintz. Each room has a different layout and theme. Third-floor rooms have the most space, with beds tucked into the roofline’s nooks, but be aware there’s no elevator. All have private bathrooms; if you’re hankering for a long soak in a deep claw-foot tub, go for the Prince Albert or Morning Glory room. The Garden Room has a whirlpool tub. The English Holiday Room, name notwithstanding, includes a work desk. But my favorite is Victoria’s Room, once Anna Bissell’s sun room, which has a narrow solarium porch with a writing desk overlooking the pool and gardens. Flat-screen TVs in most rooms are an incongruous but appreciated perk not found in many B&Bs, and the lush garden includes a pool, Jacuzzi, and deck. The morning repast is vegetarian and can be adjusted to guests’ dietary needs.
