Alexander Barret built the Manor for his lovely wife Bessie, and this deluxe room is dedicated to Bessie’s delight in the natural beauty of the forest. This bright and airy room floods with sunlight every morning and is a favorite of many guests. Bessie’s Room is inviting: antique white wicker furniture, Yves DeLorme linens from Paris, and a stained glass window in the large brick fireplace are nicely joined by ample views of the garden from a comfortable and elevated Queen Size brass bed accessed by step stools. From this original master bedroom, you can look out onto the tree-tops and the gardens. This room is a favorite of our returning guests mostly because they enjoy lounging in bed and watching the reflection of the flames as they dance across the ceiling."My husband Daniel and I stayed here for my birthday weekend. It was truly a delightful treat and perfect getaway. We were mesmerized by the delicious food, country charm, and welcoming guests. Everything about Bessie’s Room was quaint and rustic. I don’t want to leave but I know I have to! Until next time!!"
