south room

This spacious room is upstairs and at the back of the house, making it the most reclusive room in the house. Southern light pours into the room. You have an easy view of the Capitol Dome, which is only blocks away.

Ah, the luxury of organic cotton sheets! We always use thread counts over 250. In winter, you'll have flannel. In summer either sateen or damask. On either side of the bed there's a wicker night stand stocked with reading materials, tissues, etc. You have your choice of feather, foam or wool filled pillows, too! Our organic cotton comforters are filled with pure wool and made locally by Holy Lamb Organics.

We recently added a beautiful new piece of furniture to the South Room that extends its functionality in every direction. This handsome maple bunk bed doubles as a desk when the trundle bed is tucked away. If you need to put a third or fourth person in the South Room, now you can!

You might sit in these wicker chairs and have your morning coffee and newspaper. There's wireless internet throughout the house in case you need to stay in touch with the outside world. We have a twin size foam mattress available in case you have a small child you'd like to have sleeping in your room with you. You can see, there is plenty of room for one more. We charge $20 more for children to cover their food and laundry, unless they are small enough to sleep with you.

You can unwind and unpack here. Explore the roll top desk stocked with exciting stationery and cards. There's also a well lit, walk-in closet waiting to hold all your stuff.

People like the South Room because it feels so private and tranquil. The North and South room connect at either end of the same hallway. Between them are the shared bath and the Library.

This lovely bathroom is shared by guests from the North and South rooms. Your towels and hooks are clearly labeled to make it easy. We find that guests manage to work around each other's schedules with surprising ease. When there are no guests in the downstairs West room, we can offer you that shower, as well. We even have a third bathing location, the shower that connects with our sauna. We don't anticipate having problems sharing, but if you do have concerns we'd like to know because we might be able to work them out.

Soak for a while in our long claw foot tub. We have various bubbles, bath salts and herbal potions for you to enjoy. Light a candle and unwind. The pedestal sink has a mirror that swings over it for shaving and primping. We also provide a blow dryer and other amenities you may have forgotten at home. Just ask!

These wood floors have been released from years of sticky linoleum. The most stubborn linoleum was cleverly covered by these big stones from the coast.

Rates are the same for all rooms: $110 single; $120 double.
