First, seashell, if I'm not mistaken Victoria House is quite a ways from town. We'd like to be really close because we love eating at Elvi's, going to get breakfast at Ruby's, being close to grocery and liquor stores, walking around town, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong about that. Hon, O'Farrell House looks lovely, I just like to shop and compare...typical woman. You're right, people who have stayed there love it. I have looked at the lodging site carefully, but they're not always very clear in how close they are to town, layout of bedroom and bathrooms, etc. Thanks for all your input.
