Nona and Richard have a good thing going. They packed up and left L.A. to make their Ventura bed and breakfast, The Victorian Rose, an unforgettable experience for Angelenos and other travelers.
the place is haunted. It didn't deter me, (quite the opposite, in fact) although I discovered countless websites claiming someone had fallen off the choir balcony to their death, after which strange things took place.
Then again, those websites are rife with typos, which made it all seem less credible. I wasn't about to give up bedrock waterfall showers, wine and cheese at 5 pm and an elaborate breakfast on fine china. Then I spoke to Nona and Richard, and they confirmed that someone did indeed fall of the choir balcony (creepy!) and it was a child (creepier!) - not to mention that the Travel Channel covered the place in Haunted Hotels. Thankfully, the kid lived. And this place is a true landmark!
