About Us

Glen Coe Bed and Breakfast is an 1890 Victorian home with two floors and an attic and basement. There is also a viewing deck where the visitor has a lovely view of the Elizabeth River.
The original homeowners of this Victorian home were immigrants from Scotland, and when they built their dream home in Portsmouth they called it Glen Coe, after a very beautiful place in their old homeland. Glencoe, Scotland, is believed by many to be one of the most beautiful valleys in the world. It runs for ten miles between the steep slopes of rugged mountains.
This old Victorian Home had a succession of owners over the years, but eventually stood empty for a time, in need of TLC. the new owners fell in love with this charming old fixer upper opportunity and bought it with the idea of restoring it and putting it to work as a bed and breakfast. This would provide income to help keep the place up as Victorians are notoriously in need of care.
Renovations and restoration process often sirs up entities in the structure. When this Victorian home was renovated, the rose garden pretty much was destroyed, though the owners had started over again and replanted rose plants, as a Victorian House needs to have a Rose Garden.
Entity of an old lady
This former resident can be seen inspecting the roses in the Rose Garden, where she at one time had her own rose garden, which had been her passion.
To give a gentle reminder to the owners about the importance of roses, there is a strong aroma of roses in the entrance hallway.
Yes Indeed!
This rose loving entity is a gentle soul who is still a little worried about the roses, and is willing to give the living encouragement in their endeavors to grow new roses.
