Your first impression of this 16 by 24 foot room is the grandeur of its size, followed by the comfort created by its warm honey colored soft pine wood floors. There is a full sized sleigh bed dressed with an Abraham Lincoln styled bedspread, wingback chair, and writing desk.
The six and a half foot high bay windows provide plenty of sunlight in addition to the view directly overlooking the Presumpscot River. The paneled doors, exaggerated mop boards, natural stained windows – all naturally finished, along with a decorative fireplace, finish out the classic, yet warm, comfortable feel of this room. Private bath with shower/tub combo.
The centerpiece of this lovely room is a walnut split-veneer full size sleigh bed, believed to be original to the property circa 1880. Not only do the headboard and footboard match identically, there is a companion five-drawer dresser with the same exact split walnut veneer, sporting an ornate mirror. The walls have handsome blue and gold wallpaper, accented with a real gold leaf framed picture. The soft wood painted floor is covered with an oriental rug. There is a nice sitting area with a wing back chair and glimpses of the river out of some of its 5 windows.
The pineapple is the symbol of hospitality, and in the Cumberland Room, you will find the pineapple on the stunning beige wallpaper as well as on the finials of the two full-size Queen Ann four-posted beds dressed with Martha Washington style bed spreads.
This spacious room with 10-foot high ceilings also features a decorative fireplace, upholstered chair and 16 by 12 foot hooked style Oriental rug. Private bath with shower.
So named because this room gives the feel of a room in a classic Maine island or lake cottage, the Cottage Room houses two twin beds, a corner nook with a writing desk, and under the eaves are a loveseat and coffee table.
Natural wood finishes and pastel colors give this room that light faded feeling of years past. This sun-drenched room has spectacular river views from all windows.
Small, but cozy. The nooks, crannies, and eaves give a great sense of comfort, thus the name. Our smallest and most affordable room, the Cub Cave is nicely decorated with Hitchcock furnishing throughout; including two chairs w/ rushing seats, lamp, bedside stand and single bed. Finishing out the room are a writing desk, library style bookshelf, and two braided area rugs.
A spacious room with herringbone parquet hard wood floors, the Mill Room features two full-sized cannon ball posted beds with Abraham Lincoln styled bed spreads, as well as a nice sitting area with a couch for two, end table, and coffee table. Although this room has floral wallpaper, it is muted in color and the room has a definite masculine feel. No fluffy frilly pillows, chotchkes, and clutter here, or anywhere in The Elms.
This room boasts a picturesque view straight down the river with a distant view of an old railroad tussle bridge that reflects in the water in the evening sun. Although this room has the least design and architectural interest of them all, it is still neat, clean and comfortable. It contains a queen-sized bed, sitting area with wingback chair, coffee table, and leather ottoman, the eave in the ceiling is finished with wood beams.
