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.
