The Victorian Bed and Breakfast was originally built in 1850 and has been owned by three generations of the same family until the current owner purchased the property. The mansion itself was built in an Italian villa style—a popular design during that time period—by a mason who imported marble from Italy to build the fireplace mantels. It features many architectural details, such as a wraparound porch and decorative brackets along the roofline.

Throughout the property's history, the building has been visited by a few historically significant figures, including General Ulysses S. Grant. In 2016, the house was featured in an article in The London Guardian, which highlighted the top ten bed and breakfasts in New York City. 

In 1992, the current owner, Danuta, purchased the establishment and began to restore it to its former structure and theme. She is a trained architect and decided to make some changes herself. She has maintained the original character of the house while adding modern amenities, such as bathrooms on each floor. Danuta purchased the property from a tenant and has since preserved the Victorian style and antique furnishings throughout the home.
