Frozen In Time
The Inn has changed very little in the last 100 years, including retaining all of its light fixtures, furniture, decorations, and most of the bathroom fixtures.
The music room adjoining the parlor. The Steinway piano seen in the photo is no longer on the estate. Another antique baby grand piano has replaced it and is still used today as the music room by guests and performers.
The library c. 1923. Today, most of the furniture is still in this room and all of the books on display are from the original family estate.
In 1910, the large lawn on the west side of the house was converted into an Italianate garden, inspired by ruins excavated at Pompeii. This is the earliest photo we have of the gardens, taken about halfway through the construction.
This view underneath the wisteria pergola is identical to one you might take today. Taken around 1922.
The medieval Italian wishing well still stands in its original location in front of the 5h street gates.
