Kitchen Cottage

From $175.00 / night

The upper level is the main floor, with a living room with windows on three sides; a common room with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, gaslog stove for heat; and bedroom with queen bed and bath featuring a tub and shower. Downstairs is a shared bath with shower. The Playroom has twin beds, and there is a queen bed in the Streamside bedroom. Washer and dryer are available for guest use. Breakfast supplies and maid service are provided.

Brick construction suggests the kitchen was not built until the 1820s or later. A wide passageway connected to the main house, providing space for food preparation, washing dishes, cleaning and refilling kerosene lamps, and other chores. The kitchen served guests who stayed not only in the main house but also in the Mow and the Big Cottage, two structures located to the south, which no longer exist. In the 1990s, this was remodeled to be a separate dwelling, with a modern kitchen, as well as a new living room that looks out to the stream and grounds.

The Kitchen Cottage offers plenty of space for a family, friends, or work colleagues, and the ability to prepare your own meals. The large dropleaf table in the living room may be used for dining, jigsaw puzzles, small meetings, or group projects.
