  • Library Suite (2 Bedrooms/2 Bathrooms/Kitchen)

    The Library Suite has an unusual feature in that it provides the flexibility of being used as a large 2-bedroom 2-bath suite with private central kitchen and interior connecting hallway or as two completely separate private entrance studios each with a private ensuite bathroom. The kitchen is outfitted with a microwave oven, stove/oven, toaster oven, coffee maker, sink and full size refrigerator. Families or friends can book the two rooms together since there is an interior hallway that links the two bedrooms. Of the three suites at 1871 House, the Library Suite has the best set-up for two couples that are traveling together. If you book the rear bedroom by itself, the kitchen is private. If you are booking the front bedroom by itself, there is no kitchen facility. If you book the Library Suite (Front and Rear rooms) both bedrooms have full access to the kitchen. The two Library Suite Rooms are located on our 2nd floor (two flights up from the ground floor).
