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.
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.
HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS:
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.

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.
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.
