The Crosby Fireplace Room
Named after the original owners of the home, Dr, and Mrs. Crosby, this room has the original tiled fireplace and the original zinc camed windows. A built in bookcase hosts a splendid collection for reading and browsing, and a small French writing desk sits in front of the corner window, providing the perfect place to set up your laptop or write in your journal while enjoying the view of the Avenue and the Western sky. The Crosby bathroom has recently been remodeled and enlarged and has a beautiful new ceramic tile shower.
The Cassatt Room
The Cassatt room is bright and airy, as were her paintings. That dark portrait of her over the bed was painted by her then lover, Degas. Anyone looking at her paintings and his, however, could quickly see they could never make it as a couple. The smallest of our rooms, it is tucked away on the Emily Street side of the house, away from the traffic noise of the Avenue. The bathroom in this room is also quite spacious, and it is therefore a favorite with some of our regular guests.
The Rose Room
Dedicated to the last of the great French Salon painters, William Bouguereau, the Rose Room features reproductions of many of his romantic and idyllic images of country life. The original zinc camed window over the four poster bed sheds a soft light over rose themed wallpaper and bedding-creating a charming retreat from the hard edges and hectic pace of modern life. Start the morning and end your day in a bed a roses. Monsieur Bouguereau would certainly approve.
The Monet Room
Our only first floor room, the Monet Room boasts a King bed. (Though Monet was quite small and probably would not have needed it!) Colors here are soft and muted, as were many of his most loved paintings. The room looks out onto the garden, so we think it would have definitely been his room of choice. The Jacuzzi tub has a marble tile surround that makes a convenient perch for wine glasses a bottle of bubbly!
The Renoir Room
Ah Renoir! What better choice for our honeymoon suite! Innkeeper Jane Carpenter's favorite artist of all time, Renoir was bold in his use of color and passionate in his pursuit of life and beauty. It is a spacious room with a spacious bath and large Jacuzzi tub (complete with bride and groom rubber duckies!). Located on the East side of the house, the room overlooks the garden and gazebo. The perfect setting for celebrating a special occasion or just a relaxed romantic getaway.

Check-in: 4-6 PM
Check-out: 11:00 AM
e ask that guests check-in between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM. In order to prepare our rooms for newly arriving guests we appreciate check-out by 11:00 AM. Of course we realize that the best laid plans of mice and men (also women) sometimes go astray, and we can accommodate special needs if we know them in advance.
Our goal is to make our guests feel as comfortable as possible in our home. Many people, including ourselves, are non smokers and enjoy a smoke free environment; therefore, for health and safety reasons smoking is not permitted in our home. Guests are welcome to smoke on the deck or patio. Anyone choosing to ignore this policy will be asked to leave immediately, will be charged for the entire reservation, and will incur an additional and substantial cleaning charge.
Responsible use of alcohol is allowed on our premises.
We love animals and pets, especially our own Wheaten Terrier, Maggie. We realize, however, that some of our guests may be allergic to animals. For this reason, even though Maggie is a hypoallergenic and non-shedding breed, we never allow her in any of the guest rooms and we are unable to accept guest pets of any kind.
Children are a joy to their parents, but are often too young to appreciate the needs of other persons in their vicinity. We try to provide the most relaxing and elegant surroundings for our adult guests, and generally cannot accommodate guests younger than 12 years.
