The Hansel and Gretel Victorian

Enter this pretty gingerbread cottage-mansion and be drawn deeper inside by its perfumed scent. Once inside, a perfectly frightening bear-skin rug and a variety of taxidermy fauna greet you. Children best stay away from the brick fireplace hearth! Perfectly period-dressed mannequins, musical chairs, antiques, and statuary draw you in deeper. A tiny child’s corset is laid upon a small, pretty bed while music box dolls animate to dance for arriving guests. I half expected to find Miss Havisham pining away in a corner upstairs but instead I found sun poring through gothic-arched windows and shedding light upon dreamy bedrooms and hallways.
