This very private 3rd floor suite has its own sitting area with an inviting brick fireplace and satellite TV. A mission style bedroom set with a queen size bed, and a double sleigh bed nestled in its own little alcove, seem to have been meant for this cozy suite with its peaks and slanted ceilings. Soaking in the double jacuzzi looking out over the treetops will put you into a state of relaxation never before realized!
CHAMPAGNE AND ROSES
This romantic room has a fireplace with a fireside wing back chair and love seat to add to the mood. Pale pinks and green enhance a beautifully carved four poster mahogany queen size bed and matching armoire. This spacious room offers leafy vistas from the many windows and a private balcony nestled in the treetops. In addition to a shower, the bathroom provides a Japanese steeping tub, the perfect setting for a luxurious soak.
A two room suite whose decor is delightfully Gatsby. Deep greens compliment the brass queen size bed. In your adjoining private sitting room is an antique brass day bed, which provides a twin bed. This second floor room hosts a feeling of wonderful Victorian opulence.
HEARTS AND FLOWERS
Puritan grey and touches of rose compliment an armoire and a wing back chair at the foot of the four poster queen size bed. The beautiful stained glass window in the bathroom echoes the room's decor with rose hearts in a field of blue.
Mahogany furnishings culminate in two elegant mahogany four-poster double beds, in this second floor room with private bath.
This room offers a queen size white iron and brass bed, wicker furniture, and a private porch surrounded by trees with a wonderful cabin in the woods feeling.
A festive red, white, and blue quilt on a high converted rope double bed sparks a touch of American country. This room houses a wonderful collection of bird stenciling which repeats itself in the bathroom's border print, which also boasts a window of stained glass.
This room combines beautiful wallpaper by Raymond Waites with a fabulous collection of cottage country pine to create a mood of casual elegance. The painted panels inset into the headboard of the queen size bed are echoed in the delicate floral stenciling gracing each corner of the room. Your private bathroom with a tiled shower is just down a small hall outside the room. Robes are provided.
This is a NON SMOKING inn and we ask that you use the porches or the grounds for smoking. For the comfort of our guests we do not accept reservations with children under 13. Felix, the inn cat, would prefer that you do not bring pets, since this would infringe on his territory, which is the common areas and grounds.
