The fireplace in Riverview, our Arts & Crafts themed room, which has a view of the Charles River. Riverview has a large marble bathroom with glass shower stall and a deep Kohler tub.Suiting its name, Tuscany, on the 2nd floor, offers a warm, inviting ambience. The large marble bathroom has decorated fixtures, a deep tub and a glass enclosed shower.
Morningside always seems to be drenched in sunshine!  With an offset sleeping area, and separate closet and dressing area, you'll enjoy the spacious accommodations, even when it rains.Sanctuary offers just that, with a gas log "wood stove", cozy sitting area, and neo-Gothic decorative touches. The unit is on the ground floor, very private, and has a single bed in addition to the queen bed. Sanctuary is our only suite with a full kitchen, as well.
A view of North Tower, looking away from "the view", which is a spectacular one, featuring a large picture window overlooking the Charles River! This photo shows the kitchenette/dining area, the corner fireplace, and looking past the closet "wall", into the bedroom area. The main living area has two comfy chairs by the windows, and a daybed that makes into 2 single beds when needed.A corner of our main parlor with a gryphon posing before a handmade Victorian lampshade.
Here's a detail, above our sideboard, of our unbelievable Zuber wallpaper mural, which wraps most of the first and second floor common areas! The 1848 design is called 'El Dorado' and depicts the flora and fauna of 4 continents. The same design is in the Cooper Hewitt Design Musuem in NYC, and it's been featured in Architectural Digest and Art & Antiques.Here's another detail of Sanctuary, which shows the single bed and the kitchen area.
