“a charming Victorian bed-and-breakfast inn”
Nestled under big shade trees, catty-corner from the post office, is the Irwin Street Inn, a charming Victorian bed-and-breakfast inn made up of a main house and three smaller houses. The main house was originally built in the 1890's by the Wright family. Max Walden, a dedicated preservationist,purchased the house for his own family and began renovation and restoration in 1980. As adjacent property became available, Waldenn purchased it with an eye to developing it for the use and enjoyment of the people of Hanford and its visitors. Eventually,there were four buildings in the compound. Most interesting is that, except for the main buildin, the other three buildings were not two-story buildings. During the renovations, they were raised up and the "first floors" became the "second floors". The rooms were all outfitted to recollect the Victorian era. Walden didn't want any phones or televisions in the rooms. He wanted guests to leave all that behind and step into the past. The toilets had pull chains, the tubs sat up off the floor on claws, and sinks were on pedestals. At first, there weren't even showers! Today, the rooms do have televisions, and showers! Even wireless internet is provided. Yet guests still relax in the charming Victorian ambience. Every room is decorated differently and each features a stained-glass window. The owners, Frank and Deborah Garcia, and their staff go out of their way to ensure that their guests are comfortable. They do everything they can to make your stay a memorable one. The chef will cook up special items to order and will even serve breakfast in the afternoon if that's what a guest wants.
