AAA Inspector Notes
This striking 1861 red-stone Victorian mansion features an oversize two-sided porch with seating to enjoy the ocean breeze and water views peaking between two oceanfront homes across the street. The porch also is a great spot to sip a cup of Stella Maris Inn's house tea or coffee while enjoying their popular home-baked muffins. Since they don't take online reservations, you're likely to find an available room, even if you waited until the last minute to book that summer weekend getaway. Original artwork on 14-foot ceilings and antique Victorian furnishings decorate the guest rooms, some of which feature ocean views and a working fireplace. The ocean crosswind breeze tends to keep the non-air conditioned rooms pleasant for sleeping.
