Libations Lounge was opened in December 2009. The idea behind the lounge was to offer a fine selection of beer, wine, and spirits in a setting unlike any other. The lounge has allowed visitors who may not be staying at the Bed & Breakfast a chance to see how the wealthiest families lived during the Victorian era. So please sit back, relax and watch the world go by.
