About this listing
Part of the the charm of our 100+ year old house is the Third Floor Bedroom En Suite. This is a private third floor suite with a full bedroom, dressing room and spare bed. It's an all inclusive space with private bath, mini fridge, Keurig coffee maker, and microwave.
The Third Floor Master Bedroom En Suite includes a large master bedroom with queen bed. A/C and radiator heat help cool in the summer and provide a cozy space in the winter. There is ample room for two in the master and an extra person in the tuck-away space. (Please, no children under 12).
Guests are welcome to relax on the 1st floor front porch. When available, there is also a 2nd floor porch overlooking a private garden and carriage house -- a great place to relax, read, or enjoy the birds in our back yard.
Guests have use of the entire third floor.
