Circa 1902. Listed in the National Register, this family-owned three-story Victorian, Jefferson-style has been fully restored with three Belgian-tile fireplaces and an oak bannister staircase. Incredible, sweeping ocean and mountain views from the front veranda are a breathtaking sight. Overlook Lynn Fjord from several of the spacious guest bedrooms. Stay in a suite that features a mini kitchen and walk-in closet. Main-floor kitchen privileges are extended to all. A self-serve breakfast includes fruit, cereal, toast, coffee, tea and juice. Bikes are available to explore the picturesque area. Kites and fishing poles offer hours of enjoyment.
