|The Historic Strasburg, VA Victorian Hotel|
The Strasburg Hotel (in the quaint little town of Strasburg, VA) is a great example. We had never heard of Strasburg ---but while reading the info about this little Victorian Inn, we decided to try it... Afterall, we love the Shenandoahs and wanted to go back to that area. It turned out to be a very good experience for us (from April 6-10, 2014).
Today, I'll share some of the photos (be sure to click on them for enlargements) from inside that Victorian hotel.... Of course the hotel was renovated (since the old building used to be a hospital) several years ago---and they have done a fabulous job of making it look like an old Victorian Hotel.

-Our alarm clock was one of the old-fashioned ones that are not digital---so we couldn't see it at nights!!!! ha
-There were quite a few lamps in the room ---but the lighting was quite poor (like it used to be many years ago I'm sure).
- There was a phone in the room and a modern TV, but no microwaves, coffee pots, available ice machines, refrigerators---like most of us enjoy in newer hotels.
-NOTE: In this hotel, you ask the person at the front desk for some ice (or whatever you needed) and they gladly accomodated us! They also had coffee available most of the time.

|How many new flatscreen TV's have you seen on top of an OLD sewing machine???? Talk about both the new and the old!!! ha|
|Our King Bed --see the pretty quilt??? I LOVE quilts.|

|They kept all of the rooms (which were not being used) OPEN... SO I took a sneak peak at some of the other rooms... Love the head and foot board on this bed --and what a gorgeous quilt.|

|Isn't this a pretty little wash basin? I love the colors. This was in our hall.|

|Isn't this blouse just gorgeous??? And to think --they were made by hand back then!|

I have another post showing more from this hotel--but that will be at another time. Hope you enjoyed these antiques.... I'm old enough to remember seeing some of them in homes of my Great Aunts many years ago... So--this brought back memories.
Have a wonderful weekend --and I'll see you on Monday!
