While elegance is the hallmark of this beautiful and historic Italianate-style home, your hosts have created an inviting and comfortable atmosphere that is sure to please everyone who enters.  From the well-appointed antique Victorian furnishings (including a 1912 vintage upright piano) to the beautifully landscaped garden complete with swimming pool and hot tub, every guest can find the perfect spot to soothe their spirit.

Our lush garden has been transformed recently into a resort-like oasis, complete with in-ground swimming pool and hot tub.  There are still plenty of private spots for our guests to savor a morning cup of coffee, settle down with a good book, or enjoy an evening cocktail.  The base of the home’s original cistern provides a home for our Rebecca fountain and Chinese goldfish, while other gazebos, fountains and ponds adorn the garden.

Back inside, plaster ceiling medallions adorn the foyer, dining room, parlor and solarium, while the main focal point of the home’s interior is the convergence of three separate archways, extending over the double-parlor and solarium.  The union of these arches reaches toward the floor and is suspended effortlessly in mid-air.  This area provides the perfect setting for a wedding ceremony or the renewal of your marriage vows.  The dining room features an 11-foot oak table which provides a casually elegant setting for breakfast.  Eleven fireplaces grace the home, including two in the parlor, which feature Italian marble mantelpieces.  Unique cypress mantels add their own distinctive flavor to each guest room’s ambiance.  Original cypress millwork and transoms exist throughout the home.

Comfortable queen sized beds and modern amenities are included in every guest room. Leave your irons, hair dryers, bathrobes and slippers at home, as all of those creature comforts are supplied for you.  Each room is also equipped with a ceiling fan, iron & board, hairdryer, and digital satellite television.
