Think of this charming bed & breakfast as a cool-cat grandma who may seem old-fashioned but has definitely kept up with the times. Situated in the middle of town near the theater district, the inn is much larger than it seems at first glance. Two side-by-side 1884 Queen Anne Victorian-style homes house six guestrooms each. The Coach House at the rear of the property allows for a bit more privacy, housing a two-bedroom suite and a separate studio suite, each with kitchenette, overlooking well-kept English gardens. Across the street, four cottages have been converted and upgraded from early California Craftsman homes—they're perfect for a romantic weekend or couples traveling together. Décor fits the Victorian style, with floral wallpaper, antiques, and hardwood floors. A touch of romantic kitsch: Some rooms and suites include a hot tub in the bedroom. Breakfast is included, along with afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres served in the sitting room or on the outdoor patio. An in-house complimentary computer and printer are handy additional features.
