Inscription.  This waterfront property was originally built as a private residence in 1920 for Captain Firman Layman, proprietor of the Bayard House Restaurant. The property housed a stable, barber shop and apartments until 1996 when it was renovated and restored into an 8 guest room bed and breakfast. In February 2004, the new owners added two suites with jacuzzi tubs for guests seeking luxury and relaxation. Take a stroll out back to experience some of the best views of the canal.
