A renovated bathroom, décor of soft pastels, floor-to-ceiling silk drapes, crystal chandeliers and Queen size bed all make for an elegant and yet completely relaxed retreat.

Jim Williams Room
This corner room is the smallest of the three on the top floor, but high ceilings, corner windows and balcony all help to expand the sense of space. Newly renovated bathroom, ceiling fan, neutral pallet, custom drapes and Queen bed with headboard of tobacco-colored linen offers a welcomed retreat from the heat of the day or cold winter afternoons.
Jessica’s Room is a corner room located on the first level. A King size bed, newly remodeled bathroom and a cleverly “hidden” television add warmth and charm to a light, cool, comfortable and very tasteful garden room.
Unique to this room is a private gated entrance that allows access without having to climb many stairs. It also includes a private covered patio with outdoor seating for enjoying the morning light or evening breeze.
Nell’s Room is located on the first level with windows that face a quiet lot on the side of the house.

The bathroom is larger than most and has just been completely renovated. This quiet and very pretty room also has a private door that leads to the Courtyard and fish pond.
The Garden Room is the smallest room located on the first level. A Queen size four-poster bed surrounded by black and white French Country wallpaper and drapes complimented by apple green bedding creates a very welcoming experience. The petite bathroom includes a window and shower. This room also has direct access to the courtyard for quiet moments on a warm evening or a cup of coffee with the morning paper. It is a wonderfully cozy retreat and a favorite choice among many guests.
The Hibernian room is the smallest of the three rooms located in our Carriage House. Recently updated, this room is as elegant and welcoming as any. High ceilings, ceiling moldings, white and green leaf wallpaper, Queen size bed with custom headboard and skirt, chandelier, mirrored chest of drawers, and newly renovated bathroom with shower makes this delightful little room a practical way to enjoy a restful retreat. The porch is a very nice extension of the room and overlooks the courtyard where you can listen to the soothing sounds of the fish pond’s waterfall.
Sea Trade Room
Located on the first floor of the Carriage House the tiled entry hall leads to a large apricot-colored room with grasscloth wall treatments and floor-to-ceiling silk drapes. The apricot tones are contrasted by a black lacquered Chinese screen used as the headboard with the King size bed. Vintage lamps, working fireplace all contribute to a wonderfully romantic escape.
This very private room with balcony is located on the second level of the Carriage House. Neutral colors are enhanced by the black marble hearth, chocolate silk drapes, bamboo blinds, warm wood tones, mirrored back splash and dark counters of the wet bar. Custom King size bed, antique Asian nightstands, original artwork and a flat-screen TV mounted above the fireplace mantel and behind a mirror only begins to describe this very contemporary yet rich room. Tile and mirror bathroom with a two-person shower adds another dimension making The Cosmopolitan Room as unlike a typical bed and breakfast experience as you can imagine.
