They say you can’t judge a book by its cover. Well, they’re right! The facade of The Victorian Inn in Los Alamos (just an hour north of Santa Barbara) screams “quintessential Victorian Bed and Breakfast”. But step inside, and that whole idea vanishes instantly. “The Vick” (as it’s known to its fans) is about as far from Victorian as you can get. It is completely–and dramatically–themed inside, from top to bottom. We recently had the pleasure of photographing each of the six themed suites and it was fun, interesting and…wonderfully bizarre! Who can say they have photographed a full-size gypsy wagon INSIDE a guestroom, which, incidentally, is also the bed you sleep in? If sleeping in a Roman chariot is more your style, request the Roman Suite. It’s all about fantasy here–from Ancient Egypt to a Parisian Artist’ loft, you can live out your fantasy at The Vick.
