The Tierney Room

$150.00 / $240.00 night

A bright and cheerful corner room with two twin beds and three windows that bring in the morning sun.

In front of the house, facing High Street, this room looks out at a group of wonderful old white clapboard-clad homes -- every one listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The bathroom has a six foot soak tub and shower.

The room is named for Bob and Sally Tierney who, together with Bruce and Pat Hunt, were the first to recognize the potential of the Huse-McKay house as a bed and breakfast inn. Our wonderful kitchen, with its grand old Queen Atlantic stove, reflects their style and personality.
