Guest Reviews

Hydrangea House is perfectly positioned for easy walking to both the waterfront and mansions. Plus, a stop for the free trolley bus is nearby. Service was wonderful and personable, and breakfasts and happy hours were excellent. We stayed in the garden room which was lovely. Plentiful free parking was an extra bonus.

I can't say enough about this lovely bed and breakfast. I just finished staying here for 4 nights. The inn and landscaping are quaint and beautiful.

Last, the location was perfect. Close to everything but away from the noise...See More

We loved our stay here in July! The room was clean and spacious. Service was incredible and I still think about the delicious breakfast we had every morning! Easy walking distance from everything and access to public transportation. Would definitely recommend staying here!!
