Victorian Victorian



Christine found this classy B&B. Nothing says "worth almost a million bucks" like porn on the walls!

Plus we have an old friend dropping by. Perhaps the chair had made a reservation for the B&B, and wasn't notified about the changes:

Wow, in this one listing we have:
- A lonely chair staring up wistfully at the chandelier in the stairway landing.
- That classic Money Pit look.
- A sense of urgency: "Had bookings for next year already." Maybe your first guests can grab a nailer and install some beadboard.

An instant IL!ITI! Classic!

I had noticed that poor chair, too, garym -- so poignant. In fact I think I'll toss it up, too.

That's a beautiful old plantation. I'd love to buy it and retire there, while running it as a hotel in my spare time.
I almost emailed the realtor with my interests in buying it, until I saw the photo with all the garbage in the hallway. Her disregard for quality in her ad makes me not trust her. I'll keep looking...

Was the person taking the pictures so overwhelmed by the amount of work that needed to be done that they just didn't notice the risque pictures above the fireplace? Or is this a perfectly normal occurrence for them? I think Garym is correct. The buyer had better have a lot of money above and beyond the asking price.

What's with the ceiling in the "lone chair" picture? Is this faux finish or water stains? Maybe, it's both.

Okay, wait a minute...
12 total bedrooms
12 total baths
10 total full baths
4 total half baths
26 total rooms.

Something does not add up here.
If you have 10 full baths and 4 half baths, according to my calculations that comes to 14 total baths.

And 26 total rooms, I'm relieved to know that it must at least have a kitchen.

Oh, the wistful chair. The pathos...

Um, that's not really porn, they've got their boobs 'in'. I think it's the Gladiators or something, although of course they are being sexually objectified, or as 3rdWave feminism would say, we're all kinda pornified these days, so your first opinion stands correct.

I'm very offended by the tiled fireplaces. Ah, schmodernisation...

To be fair, the pictures above the fireplace are not porn, but advertisements for fitness equipment. My guess is that room was once their excercise room. It's still pretty dumb to have those pictures hanging there, though.

Did the people who 'had' bookings not see this place first? Imagine the looks on their faces when they check in! I bet no one has contacted them to say their vacation is cancelled.

Actually, the posters above the fireplace aren't porn, as others have mentioned (tacky, yes, but porn, no), nor are they posters for Gladiators or exercise equipment. They are ads for Mikita, maker of high quality power tools.

My guess is that the contractors who are renovating the place put them up. Still, no excuse for the realtor to leave them there for the photo (unless, of course, said contractors were still in the room, menacing her with Mikita power tools).

Wow. This place could be amazing. When I hit the Powerball lottery (because clearly it'll take that much money) y'all can come and stay. You can get the "It's Lovely, I'll Take It" discount. I promise to take the porn down by them. I'll leave it up for now because even squatters need love too.

"Home in process of renovating."

Is that like the house equivalent of molting?
