The Courting Chamber

The charming Courting Chamber boasts a view of the meadow and the pool. During winter, you can look through the branches of the trees and get a glimpse of the lake.

A decorative fireplace adds to the ambiance, and antique portraits decorating the walls follow the courtship theme by depicting couples in love.

The authentic, full-sized 1820's rope bed has a modern foam mattress by Supple-Pedic.

The accompanying bath is magnificent, complete with a superb, oval-shaped whirlpool bath for two, a separate tiled shower and a large, dry sink vanity -- all equipped with pewter-look fixtures and the conveniences you would expect in a lavish bathroom. The brick wall, reminiscent of this room's origin as a sleeping porch, lends to the feel of times past.

What a romantic setting for a honeymoon or anniversary celebration!


The Traveler's Room

The Traveler's Room was so called because it was customary during the time that Nancy Jane and Hazael lived here for travelers to stop at strangers' homes and ask for a room for the night. A separate outside staircase allows our guests private access to this room. This was the "Bed and Breakfast" room of 1840.

A small, exclusive deck with table and chairs invites you to sip beverages and relax while enjoying the glorious view of the back woods and the pool. The four-poster cannonball bed beckons you with indulgent linens and beautiful bedding -- and boasts a surprise, antique trundle bed beneath it! This bed provides ample room for a small child.

Inside the Traveler's Room is a private bath with an authentic 1800's washstand with china basin.


Elizabeth's Chamber

Elizabeth's Chamber is a light and spacious room with windows overlooking both the front lawn and the lovely meadow to the north. It is furnished with a queen-sized, tiger maple, pencil-post bed, as well as an antique, twin-sized acorn bed -- upon which to curl up with your favorite book -- or perhaps take an afternoon nap!

The Elizabeth's Chamber has gorgeous antiques of the era, a warm decorative fireplace and beautiful bedding and rugs -- all of which will make you feel as if you have taken a walk back through time. If there are three of you traveling together, this is a good choice for you. The adjoining bath has a meadow view and is furnished with a shower and tub combination and a pedestal sink.


The Presidents' Chamber

This bedchamber is probably the room used by Mr. and Mrs. Tucker as their personal sleeping room. Beautifully appointed with a walnut, four-poster queen-sized bed, wonderful antiques (some of which are family pieces) and a decorative fireplace, this room offers views of both the front and rear of the property, as well as the garden. The adjacent, private bath has a whirlpool tub/shower for your relaxation and is just two steps from your bedroom.


Romantic Retreat

The Romantic Retreat gives our special guests who are celebrating a wedding night, an anniversary, a birthday, or just a romantic getaway two adjoining rooms (Courting Chamber and Travelers Room) for less than the cost of the two rooms. You will enjoy two full baths, a whirlpool tub for two, two showers, two vanities, two entrances (interior and outside), two splits of champagne, refrigerator, coffee maker, and a private deck area overlooking the woods and the pool. This special is available on weekdays for $200 per night and weekends and holidays for $220 per night. Two-night or more stays receive a 10% discount. Please call to reserve this special treat.
