Facing the north-west, this warm chamber provides a wonderful view of the Front Lawn below. It has a quite balcony overlooking the front stairs, perfect for reminiscing the day's events or cuddling up with a good book, and a full sized bed* for relaxing the night away. Furnished with an 8 foot walnut bedroom set (c.1880) and civil war era, marble wash table by the reknowned furniture maker "Mitchell & Rammelsberg", this seclusion will take you back to a time long forgotten by many -- but not forgotten here.
With its 14 foot vaulted bay ceiling; full bay windowed wall; and magnificent view of the estate's main grounds, original barn (c.1875), love-seat tree swing, and enormous Ginkgo tree, the Bay Room has become a cherished favorite. Graced with an 8 foot custom-queen bed* and dresser set made by perhaps the greatest 19th century furniture maker, Prudent Mallard (c.1870), and with a rare, high-back Victorian baby crib (c.1885), this gem is truly special. Facing the south-west, its second floor bay view of the mountain sunset over the tree-covered horizon is truly inspiring.
With its second-floor, bay window view of the morning sunrise & cliff-overlook deck – this bedchamber easily has the most splendid view, if you’re a morning person! The room has just been fully redecorated, though not in the grand Victorian style, rather in a style more consistent with its early 1800s American Empire furniture. This includes a magnificent 1830s Butler’s desk and 1820s upholstered bench and chair. But the most beloved piece is an original family heirloom, an 1840s “tiger maple” spindle bed, handed down in our family since it was made by our forefathers – and our personal bridal bedstead!
