Queen Anne Wrap around porch - a perfect spot to relax, read a book, catch up with friends and sip a glass of iced tea or a glass of wine. The floor is the original italian tile and the balustrades are hand-carved limestone. The perfect spot to view a parade.Beautiful leaded and stained glass window of St. Cecelia, Patron Saint of musicians carrying her mandolin - hence the name of the Inn. Can you find the "blessed error"?
The English Cottage Garden next to the pond.The Music Room - perfect for reading, chatting or catching up on the news.
Formal Parlor - sip a glass of port or sherry and relax back into the past.Glorious dining room with fantasy forest oil painting that surrounds entire room and magnificent white oak sideboard - what a way to start your day.
The Amanda Room - originally the family's second floor sitting room - full of lovely oak woodwork, queen-size burled oak bed and matching bedside tables and dressing table, gorgeous non-working fireplace, chaise lounge, and two very comfortable chairs in a big bay window. Elegance and luxury to the max!The formal parlor
The Solarium - light and airy room in what was originally the greenhouse/sunroom.
