Circa 1883. Feel like one of the First Family at this Victorian home that reflects a stately presidential motif. Relax by the fire with a glass of wine in the Diplomatic Reception Room. Large guest bedrooms and a suite are named after past commanders in chief and include amenities fit for foreign dignitaries. Enjoy a satisfying breakfast delivered to each room. The landscaped grounds feature trees, shrubs, white picket fences and the Rose Garden, a pleasant spot to sit and reflect or read. Towels are available for excursions to a nearby beach. Visit an assortment of local historical sites.
