Experiencing this wonderful venue will blow you away, from the moment you walk through the front door. As I searched for the perfect Victorian hat to wear to my tea, I transformed into a house guest in a beautiful decorated home. I was greeted - welcomed, by very friendly staff. The piano planned as my friend and I chatted over which tea we were going to try. I became engrossed in the environment almost forgetting it was 2014. The luncheon experience included tea and four perfectly selected courses ( celery salad, scones, a variety of mini sandwiches, tray of assorted pastry). Susan Notte, owner walked about smiling and chatting with her guests. After finishing our delicacies, we toured this fabulous building seeing antiques individually appointed to each richly decorated room. From the waiting room, through the dining areas, sitting room, bedrooms and bathes this old Victorian home will transform you into a character from "Somewhere in Time". This venue is a must try!
