The room was small but charming . The bed was very comfortable and the furniture and accessories were Victorian in style with lots of hand painted edging in the bathroom and bedroom. Our room was called the Watermelon Room and had a full wall painted mural of a watermelon stand. The air conditioner kept us cool and the bedding was colorful and tastefully matched the colors of the artwork on the walls. I especially loved how the floor sloped a bit toward the center,just like you would expect in an older home. We enjoyed going out on the large front porch in the evenings and watched movies on our Kindle Fire. You can see the boardwalk and the ocean from the porch as well. and the ocean breeze was delightful. I had read about the awesome breakfast Lillagaard provides and we were not disappointed. Mia and Tina were such delightful hostesses and the owner, Dick, was very friendly and helpful. Our breakfast was served in the first floor Victorian Tea Room complete with dozens of tea pots and hats and artwork. Parlor music played softly in the background as we dined on French toast, bacon,potatoes, fresh fruit, Greek yogurt, breads, multiple hot and cold beverages, and tiny cheesecakes. The second day we enjoyed eggs and sausage, seasoned potatoes, fresh fruit, Greek salad, and bread pudding. When Tina learned that it was our anniversary, she treated us to a delicious sample of one of their famous chocolate delights that they serve during their afternoon high tea parties.
