The Lilac Room is the largest guest room in the main house and it features a king size bed, and a fireplace framed in ornamental ceramic tiles with a large original mantle and gas logs. There is cable TV and DVD player in the room along with a telephone and seating area. In addition, you can write up one our complimentary post cards at the antique writing desk.  French doors leading to Helen's Balcony and the Inn's largest private bath with an antique cast iron tub and shower, that has dark blue outer enamel, brass claw feet and white porcelain inside, set the stage for returning to the slower, more relaxed times of the 1840's.This photo shows a portion of the living room and a piece of the kitchenette in the Carriage House Sycamore Suite.
