Bar Lounge



Many common areas enhance the house. On the first floor guests can enjoy playing pool on the eight-foot table or playing chess on an inlaid board in the Game Room.
Puzzles, cards, and board games are also available. Pocket doors separate this room from the Formal Parlor where cool nights are warmed by the marble fireplace and the early morning sun can be seen rising out the floor to ceiling windows. Across the eight foot wide foyer is another favorite spot for guests. The Gathering Room sports a cherry semi-circular bar with raised panels custom made to duplicate the room's original ones.  A modern refrigerator holds cold beverages for our guests. A literature rack features information about local and regional activities.


The dining room where breakfast is served is found at the far end of the foyer. Raised chestnut paneled walls and original anaglypta wall covering give this room its elegance. The room's oval shape makes it even more unique. Another casual retreat can be found on the second floor. At the top of the wide, spindled stairway, lined with photos of New Bedford from the 1870s, is a large leaded glass window through which our sleeping porch can be seen. Once on this porch, wicker furniture makes this a comfortable spot for listening to nature.
