Room Detail

The Woodbine Cottage Suite

Reserve Compare

Before The Architect’s Inn or George Champlin Mason House, this home of George C. Mason was originally called The Woodbine Cottage. We only saw it fit to name a room after the the house. Though originally two servants quarters (the maid and the chef), this is more of a penthouse suite now spanning the upper west wing. The windows face west overlooking the neighboring mansion during sunset; in the morning, a gentle trickle of light filters in as almost to whisper, “Good morning”. Woodbine is another name for honeysuckle which was a favorite of G.C. Mason’s wife. With all of this said, appropriately so, this room attracts gardeners and the more relaxed, light-hearted Victorians.

This lovely 3rd floor suite is wonderfully decorated with yellows and blue accents to gives a soothing feel of an English Cottage Style home. The quaint bedroom features an antique corkscrew bed which can be adjusted to have a King Bed or two Twin Beds and also features a romantic electric fireplace to create just the right touch of ambiance. The sitting room has two wicker chairs, a desk and room for extra beds which can be used to accommodate additional guests. It also has private bath with shower, A/C, robes, CD Player as well as cable Television with DVD and VCR.
