The Gatsby Mansion

Doesn't this look like a lovely veranda to have lunch? This is the Gatsby Mansion, a boutique hotel and dining establishment that occupies one of Victoria's early Queen Ann style residences on Belleville Streeet just down the block from the Robert Bateman Gallery and the Legislature. It overlooks the Inner Harbour where the Coho and Clipper dock. The house itself was originally built by Robert Pendray in 1890 and was then called Huntingdon Manor. A later owner re-named it "Gatsby Mansion" after the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby. There is an interesting short history of the house and surrounding buildings you can read by clicking HERE.

I enjoyed breakfast there one morning before my ferry and of course it's featured on the Ghostly Walks tour. Love this place.
