On our second floor resides our sole two-bed guestroom with two antique short-four-poster full length twin beds. Homey and comfortable, this room is a favorite for girlfriends' getaways, mother-daughter holidays and parents with their college-bound teens visiting the area's many fine universities. This double twin-bed room overlooks the back of the property and beyond into the woods and tidal marsh. Elegant lace curtains adorn the windows. It features an up-to-date and European style bathroom format with the sink and vanity in the main room and the toilet and shower privately placed behind a closed door, in the ensuite "water closet." Unusual though this may be for the USA, this provides the convenience for one person to shower while the other dries their hair. You'll also enjoy the spa toiletries and thick and thirsty terry robes. Furnishings include a writing desk, antique chest on chest, and two comfortable reading chairs. Air conditioned in Summer and comfortably heated in Winter, free Wifi and cable TV complete the appointments. Floral Jacobean print wallpaper and trapunto quilted bed toppers give this room an inviting heirloom look.
