Much of the original architecture has been preserved in this beautiful Victorian style home. It offers guests all the amenities of a first class hotel, inside theuniquely handcrafted framework reminiscent of a time past. The original fireplaces, native hardwood floorsand handmade solid wood doors all add to the nostalgic panache presented by The Fortune House.
