Robin's Nest

What a beautiful setting to snuggle beneath the comforter and nurture your romantic inclinations. Satellite TV is also available in this room.

The Nightingale

The nightingale is a somewhat elusive English bird that apparently migrates to Africa for the winter but is featured in a tale by Hans Christian Andersen that places it in Asia. Its low-pitched song is unobtrusive as it strives to avoid conflict and live peacefully with its neighbors. Feel transported abroad as you settle into this tranquil, elegant setting dressed in black and white toile.

This room is located on the second floor, has a comfortable queen bed, cable television, and a private bathroom.

The Hummingbird Garden

This wonderfully sunny space is sure to lift your spirit as it joyfully delights all who enter. Consider that hummingbirds are tiny acrobats that can flutter their wings up to 80 times per second as they hover and sip nectar from colorful - especially yellow and fuschia - flowers. Then try to keep from smiling as you settle into the yellow-cushioned chairs and feel surrounded by an exuberant field of bright blossoms.

This room is located on the second floor, has a comfortable queen bed, cable television, and a private bathroom.

CHECK AVAILABILITY

The Aerie

An aerie is the eagle's nest at the top of the tree where the same pair of birds return year after year to hatch and raise their young. If you're celebrating homecoming for the blue and gold of nearby Principia College, or want to return to the less harried pace of historic rural America, this room is for you. It's a cozy space, with TV, that opens to the comfortable seating on the back veranda.

This room is located on the second floor, has a comfortable queen bed, and a private bathroom.

CHECK AVAILABILITY

The Meadowlark

A meadowlark perches upon a fence post or tree stump to survey the prairie and watch for insects to snare as a meal. Settle into this restful green space and imagine the lark gliding amongst the butterflies and wildflowers.

Located on the second floor, this gracious setting has a private bathroom, two double beds, and five windows to allow sunshine and birdsongs to waft through the room.
