The upstairs hall leads toward the 10-foot French doors to the front balcony through this bright sitting area. Enjoy a book, conversation or morning coffee on the sofa inside or outside overlooking the grounds and historic Church Street. The early morning coffee service is provided on the marble-topped sideboard.
Located on the main floor at the bottom of the back stairs, the honor bar features premium liquors (in mini bottles), beer and a variety of soft drinks. Guests can help themselves before or after cocktail time at 7 pm by simply filling out a guest ticket. Complimentary fruit and packaged snacks are also available.
This inviting parlor features a white on white fireplace mantle of carved wood and ceramic tile, original plantation shutters and an intriguing three-foot door that was used to provide coal for the fireplace in a bygone era.
The deep red walls and comfortable furnishings create a lounge-type atmosphere for pre-dinner socializing. The original eight-foot beveled glass mirror and hand-carved mantle piece add old world charm to this most welcoming room.
A cozy area just off the main hall provides a quiet spot for reading, relaxing or reviewing the Inn’s wine list and a bottle of each wine on the display shelf. The Wall Street Journal arrives daily and is on the sideboard along with the current issue of Wine Spectator.
With 2000 square feet of verandah downstairs, a southern hallmark is placed on the otherwise European style facade of the Inn. The rockers and shaded alcoves beckon visitors to sit and relax.
