Michelangelo

$119.00 / $179.00 night

Re-live a bit of the history of Albion Manor by enjoying the very Victorian Wisteria Room that is favoured by those who enjoy baths: it has a beautiful claw-footed tub for soakers! Just lie there any enjoy the frescoed ceiling. See the photo below. And you will want to spend a lot of time on the covered sun deck.

Amenities  

  • Beautiful Victorian decor; high windows and ceiling
  • Original hardwood floors and high wainscot
  • King-size half-canopy bed in solid mahogany
  • Private entrance and private wisteria-covered deck
  • Claw-foot recliner tub and shower
  • Wireless internet access
  • Art (with a capital A)

The Bed

Full canopy beds were popular at one time as a method of preventing 'things or thingies' from falling onto you at night from your thatched roof. One presumes that, as roofs got better, only half canopies were necessary. We can assure you that nothing will fall on you from the roof- we don't have a thatched one. This intricately carved half-canopy king-size bed is solid mahogany and features beautifully carved bird and grape motifs

The Bathroom Frescoe

We're pretty proud of this one. Fernando spent months painting the walls and the frescoed ceiling. An angel sprinkles flower petals down onto whomever is in the bathtub while doves pull ribbons that hold up the chandelier.

Room 7

$109.00 / $159.00 night

Light streams through the shuttered windows of the large bathroom. Swoon in the claw-foot soaker tub with separate shower, and then relax with a glass of wine on the private terrace overlooking the Obelisk Garden.

Amenities

  • 1870 hand-carved queen-size oak bed from Brittany in France
  • A beautiful room with original 1892 hardwood floors, wainscot and 11-foot ceiling

  • Wireless internet access
  • Art (with a capital A)

The Bed

This queen-size bed is from Brittany in France and dates from about 1870. It is elaborately carved oak. In the late 19th century, Brittany was thought of as somewhat exotic (Paul Gaugin had made his home there and many other artists thrived in the region) and the carving strongly reflects that image.

The Bath

The bathroom has a wonderful full length

claw-foot soaker tub and a separate shower. The windows open out in the garden overlooking pear trees. And just over to the right is the pond and waterfall.

Queen's Terrace 6

$109.00 / $169.00 night

This room captures the feeling of the original home better, perhaps, than any other room in our home and it has a bed that once belonged to the Governor of Wisconsin! Relax with a glass of wine on the private terrace overlooking the Obelisk Garden.

  • queen-size bed Eastlake style high-headboard bed- the Governor's Bed

The Bed

This is a truly remarkable bed. It was owned at one time by the Governor of Wisconsin. We got it at an auction sale. How it came to be in Victoria we don't know, but when we removed the drawers in the dresser, we found lots of old papers and photos. Obviously no one had looked there in a very long time. It is a real treasure to add to our home.
