The Veranda Suite

$149.00 / $169.00 night


Located on the main floor, we believe this room originally served as the first owner’s office, due to the exterior door leading to the side porch/veranda. This would have allowed him to receive his business guests without them coming into the main house. The entry is via an 8 ft. tall four-panel solid pine door located off the central hall under the main staircase. This room features the original southern yellow pine floors, a 12 ft. high ceiling (w/fan), an ornate mirrored fireplace mantel, and three large (3’ x 7.5’) windows, extending outward in a “bay”. The view is southerly providing this room with plenty of “green” from the gardens and lots of light year-round. It’s special feature is the semi-private covered veranda, accessible directly from the room and provides 2 commodious rocking chairs beside a table. The room is furnished with a king bed dominated by a beautiful “lace” wood headboard, two matching nightstands, an upholstered sofa, coffee table, two upholstered chairs aside an oak reading table that converts to a writing/work table, a large clothes dresser, and a clothes closet. This room measures 16.5’ x 21’ not including the bathroom that measures 9.5’ x 11.5’ and features a large garden tub/shower combination, 4 ft. vanity sink, and separate "water closet" partitioned with a pocket door. $149/$169 double occupancy with maximum occupancy - 2 people

The Library Suite

$129.00 / $149.00 night


One of two main floor rooms, we believe this room originally served as the Gentlemen’s parlor and later the library for the house. The entry is characterized by the 8 ft. tall, original solid pine four-section paneled folding doors, allowing the room to be completely open to the central hall, or closed as it is now for privacy. This room features the original oak floors with a double walnut inlay, a 12 ft. high ceiling (w/fan), an ornate mirrored fireplace mantel, narrow-board pine wainscoting, and four large windows. Two windows (3’ x 7.5’) face south and look out to the side veranda (covered & shaded), and south lawn, and two windows (3’ x 9’) face west overlooking the front porch and formal entry plaza. These windows extend all the way to the floor and were most likely used like we use “patio doors” today, to access the porch and provide ventilation. The room is furnished with a king bed, two upholstered chairs aside a reading table, an armoire for hanging clothes, a writing desk, a clothes dresser, and a TV/VCR cabinet with storage. This room measures 17’ x 17’ which includes a compact, “cruise ship” like bathroom with a walk-in shower and commode. The 4 ft. vanity sink stands in front of the beautiful mirrored fireplace mantel. $129/$149 double occupancy with maximum occupancy - 2 people
