The LaFarge Room

Reserve Compare

John LaFarge was a contemporary of George Champlin Mason and lived a couple houses down on Sunnyside Place. His famous stain glass work can be seen in such places as Trinity Church, Redwood Library, St., Mary’s Church, St. Paul’s Chapel, Church of the Ascension and St. George’s School. John LaFarge experimented with color problems in stained glass. His invention of the opalescent glass, as well as superimposing and welding of the metal won him world recognition. He was also a very accomplished writer, just like G.C. Mason. writers have often chosen the LaFarge Room for its inspiration and historical significance. Many screenplays, novels, blogs and articles have been written in the LaFarge Room, consequently.

This elegant room comes with a King Canopy Bed, a romantic fireplace and two comfortable chairs. The walls decorated with classic Victorian hanging flower basket wallpaper and wonderfully appointed Victorian furnishings. The extra thick pillow-top mattress just adds to the splendor. It also has a Television with DVD and VCR with a selection of movies downstairs in the library. The wonderful inlay floors, twelve foot ceilings and extra tall windows makes the Lafarge timeless. The private bath has a pedestal sink along with a large custom shower with tile seat and water temperature control.
