the charming stone mudroom, and then cross over the kitchen threshold where
your passage back to Colonial times begins. This large gathering place
~~ featuring a lofty open-beamed ceiling, original kitchen cupboards, cooking
fireplace with bake oven, and deep curved window reveals ~~ with its informal,
down-to-earth charm, will make you feel instantly at home while transporting
you back to a very distant past. Here you can begin to imagine the topics
of conversation these old walls have been privy to. The hardships
and courage of an arduous journey across a dangerous sea to a strange new
land; the toils and burdens of everyday life while Revolutionary battles
were being waged close by as the early history of our great country was
being forged. Where English pounds were the payment of the day, and
the words “grueling over a hot stove” took on a whole different meaning.
And what did they think of Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation and The Gettysburg
Address. But, this is where, in the here and now, as surely as night
has followed day for the past 250 years, the scent of fresh brewed, early
morning coffee makes guests gather round the large farm table, chatting
about today’s news and important events. At least until Gail and
Harvey shushes them out of the kitchen so breakfast can be served perfectly
prepared and on time. See you at breakfast!
Lovely place settings with fine china and crystal, adorned by fresh
flowers and candlelight, is the perfect way to start the day in this elegant,
bright and airy room. Here, at 9AM sharp, along with pleasant and stimulating
conversation, (questions about the Inns history and restoration are always
a favorite topic), breakfast begins with hot brewed coffee, assorted teas,
juice, baked or chilled fruit plate, a sumptuous gourmet breakfast and
delicious sweet cakes. Bon Appetit!

hand-painted doors, which, in olden times often separated these two rooms
are now always open, connecting the parlor and music room together, in
perfect harmony. Simple elegance, comfortable seating, matching corner
fireplaces and a grand piano create a tranquil atmosphere; a perfect refuge
to soothe the mind and spirit. Here guests may enjoy a glass of Cream
Sherry while leafing through our special album, which features pictures
of the Inn - before, during and after its fourteen-year restoration.
Guests are also encouraged to have some fun with our wonderful antique
Victrola, built in 1906; quite a reminder of how times have changed in
just 100 years.

The Beth Grant Room:
TV room is just so charming. Quaint & cozy, with a comfortable sofa and
loveseat, it features a rare, floor to ceiling hand-painted cupboard, a
corner fireplace with iron cooking arm, and many of Gail & Harvey’s
favorite treasures. An antique jelly cupboard houses the TV, VCR,
and a wide variety of games---Scrabble, Chess, Back Gammon, cards, etc. Jigsaw
puzzles are also available and great for stay-at-home rainy days.
Over the jelly cupboard hangs a timeworn wooden sign that dates back to
the mid-1800s when Joseph Baugh, and his wife, Maria Hoopes, owned the
property. This perfect retreat invites you to snuggle up under an
afghan and forget about the problems of the world.
Located on the 2nd floor this sun-filled room, (used in the olden days
as a sleeping porch), with beautiful built-in bookcases, offers comfortable
seating and of course, BOOKS, BOOKS, and more BOOKS. Relax and Enjoy!
