The upstairs hall leads toward the 10-foot French doors to the front balcony through this bright sitting area. Enjoy a book, conversation, or morning coffee on the sofa inside or outside overlooking the grounds and historic Church Street. The early morning coffee service is provided on the marble-topped sideboard.
Located on the main floor at the bottom of the back stairs, the honor bar features premium liquors (in mini bottles), beer, and a variety of soft drinks. Guests can help themselves before or after cocktail time at 7 pm by simply filling out a guest ticket. Complimentary fruit and packaged snacks are also available.
This inviting parlor features a white on white fireplace mantle of carved wood and ceramic tile, original plantation shutters, and an intriguing three-foot door that was used to provide coal for the fireplace in a bygone era. Gentlemen’s Parlor: The deep red walls and comfortable furnishings create a lounge-type atmosphere for pre-dinner socializing. The original eight-foot beveled glass mirror and hand-carved mantle piece add old world charm to this most welcoming room.
A cozy area just off the main hall provides a quiet spot for reading, relaxing, or reviewing the Inn’s wine list and a bottle of each wine on the display shelf. The Wall Street Journal arrives daily and is on the sideboard along with the current issue of Wine Spectator. Verandah: With 2000 square feet of verandah downstairs, a southern hallmark is placed on the otherwise European style facade of the Inn. The rockers and shaded alcoves beckon visitors to sit and relax.
