It includes a full stove and oven as well as a small refrigerator. Everything you need to cook, prepare, and server is at your fingertips. Your stay comes with a welcomed complimentary beverage service, coffee and premium teas.

My family’s favorite part of the kitchen were the gourmet cookies from Pistacia Vera. I asked my husband what he was eating and he said, “the best chocolate cookie ever”. I read the box and guess what it said! Best Chocolate Cookie Ever! No, he didn’t read it before hand, they just really are AMAZING! We had the Bittersweet Fudgie that is made with Valrhona Manjari (64%) chocolate.

Victorian Village Guest House Bedroom

The Victorian Village Guest House Bedroom is separated by a wall from the great room. This is a truly luxurious place to lay your head at the end of the day. The linens are of the traditional colors and style of Victorian bedrooms with dark maroon and gold elements. You will feel rested and rejuvenated after sleeping in the marvelously comfortable bed. The is one element of traveling that I typically don’t like. I love my bed at home and usually I am so disappointed in the beds at hotels. Not at the guest house, this is a superior bed for comfort. The bed is piled high with lovely pillows that are soft and add to the charm of the room.

In the great room, the sofa bed has a trundle bed to easily sleep 2. My kids fought over who got to sleep on the trundle and then who got to sleep on the sofa bed. In the end, they were both happy wrapped in the super soft, plush blankets and pillows. Yes, even kids notice these amenities! There were plenty of extra sheets, pillows, and blankets in the 2 full size closets located in the bedroom. Also in the bedroom were 2 spa robes.

Victorian Village Guest House Bathroom

Victorian Village Guest House Bathroom is stunning with red walls and ceiling, crisp white furniture, tile floor and accessories. There were plenty of thick, soft towels and even a heated ceiling light. What caught my eye right away were the exclusive bath amenities from Paris. I love being spoiled! A great hair dryer is also provided.

When my husband had a headache, he asked if I had any medicine. Nope. Thankfully there was even a nice variety of items in the bathroom including a first aid kit, pain medication, toothbrushes, and other items you may have forgotten. They thought of everything, even if you didn’t! 🙂

    Cindy didn’t mention it, but we also offer overnight guests a “Friends of Basi” 10% discount card for dinner at Basi Italia restaurant. http://www.basi-italia.com It is an amazing little gem that is within walking distance of the guest house. Not a “family friendly” restaurant, but definitely the place to go if you are coming for a romantic getaway or girls weekend!
