The Cubbedge Room has a beautiful view of the continually-blooming perennial garden and herb beds. This breezy classic style room gently borrows from the gardens with its light floral decor. In addition to the queen-sized cast iron bed, a pine writing desk is conveniently tucked into a corner window allowing you to view the gardens as you work, while a pair of winged-back chairs gives you comfortable space for reading or TV watching. The en-suite bathroom boasts a charming pedestal sink and a standard-sized tub with shower.
This queen room is closest to the sleeping porch overlooking Lake Eulalia. Painted a deep period blue, it is furnished with a romantic four-poster bed sitting a little higher than most. The original mantle piece, writing desk and Queen-Anne style chests nod to its history. Two over-stuffed slipper chairs in a modern fabric balance the decor and offer comfort for enjoying a favorite show or book. The en-suite bathroom boasts the restored original claw-foot tub with overhead shower. Decorated in deep blue with accents of red and white. The Hirsch Room is our most spacious guestroom.
(*Note that the claw-foot tub has a higher side than a standard tub and requires a little more "finesse" to step in and out. While a rubber safety matte is provided, if you are uncertain in any way, please consider booking a different room with a standard tub.)
The O'Heir Room boasts a bay window looking out over the front lawn down to Lake Eulalia. This mesmerizing view, along with its vibrant red color, have made it the undisputed guest favorite. Facing eastward, the O'Heir gets the first of the morning light through creamy sheer curtains--great for early risers. For those wanting to sleep a bit longer, there are blackout drapes that darken the room nicely. As the original "master" bedroom of the house, it boasts the most elaborate mantle made of century-old cypress wood. A queen reproduction iron sleigh bed, writing desk with chair, cable TV, along with a cozy settee make for very comfortable guest accommodations. The en-suite bathroom has a standard size tub with shower and tile surround.
