Room Detail

The Redwood Room

Reserve Compare

The Redwood Room was once the master bedroom in the mansion which can be seen in the attention to detail to moldings, tile and intricate floor art. Even the hidden door to the bathroom is unique for this style house. It is the only room where returning customers have delayed their trip in order to wait for a vacancy in this very special room. The simple loveliness of the white and blue tones is almost like the beauty in a Roman Classical sculpture. The Redwood room has no bounds; it is just beautiful for all to see.

The Redwood Room is named after the Redwood Library, America’s Oldest Lending Library, located right here in Newport, RI. George Champlin Mason was commissioned to design an addition on the library which currently is the front of this beautiful building. The library is made of redwood but carved to give the impression of stonewalls. When the Architect’s Inn was originally constructed, this room would have had a clear view of the Redwood Library which prominently sits on the corner of Old Beach Road and the Famous Bellevue Avenue.

Room is beautifully furnished with a Queen Canopy Bed, extra thick pillow-top mattress, and of course our 650 thread count luxury sheets. This spacious room with its inlay floors, crown-molding and twelve foot ceilings features a real fireplace, a full length couch, television with DVD player, CD, Player, alarm clock, antique lamps and wonderful floor to ceiling windows that allows for a lot of daylight. The Redwood Room has a very spacious private bath with an antique clawfoot soaking tub with shower and whirlpool jet spa. A selection of DVD’s and CD’s can be found in the downstairs library.
