Romeo’s Holiday

With its pink facade, the eight-room Romeo’s Holiday guest house (c1850) sticks out, even at a great distance. But it’s worth getting closer to see the Ken and Barbie poolside tableaux, staged with dolls around a goldfish pond in the sliver of a front yard.

Stan Klein, the proprietor, said there was once an after-hours club on the property and that it had been a guest house at least since the mid-1970s. Known for a time as Pete’s Buoy, it was renamed just before Klein took over in 1999. “Was going to change it to the Hamilton House,” he said, “but 95 percent of the guests liked Romeo’s Holiday.”
