Overview
Built in 1881, this hotel is housed in a home that belonged to a ship captain. The name of the hotel, Seafaring Maiden, refers to the ship captain's daughter, Bessie, who led the ship and its crew across the Atlantic, when most of the crew (including her ship captain father) fell ill. This hotel is well-suited for guests who would like to include historical charm with their accommodations.

There are three rooms at this hotel, each with free Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV, a hair dryer, a DVD player and an iron and ironing board. Rooms are furnished with either a king or a queen bed. Pets are not allowed at this hotel.

There is no on-site restaurant, but guests are offered a multi-course breakfast daily. On-site amenities include free parking and a library.
