The SpaceWelcome to Grandma Tea Party's Suite. This suite is one of 2 that we have above our art gallery and home. This suite has a private bedroom with 2 double beds and a spacious closet. It has a separate large room with a full kitchen, living space and dining table. The kitchen has full size appliances, dishes, cookware, just about everything you would need to make a meal if you wanted. The suite also features a full bath with a spacious shower and complimentary laundry facility. There are huge windows which let in lots of great light. We do have a curtain in the bedroom, but not darkening shades, so you will wake to the cheery sunshine! The room sleeps 4 in beds, but the couch is very long and comfortable if necessary for more guests. Just let us know ahead of time, so we can be ready.
Grandma Tea Party's Room is named after Mark's mom. Our daughters referred to her as Grandma Tea Party because that was their favorite past time with her! We have some special belongings of hers in the room and special artwork from some of our past guests!
We fell in love with our building because of the beautiful woodwork upstairs, which is where your suite is. We maintained the original feel and updated with modern conveniences! The upstairs originally had been a doctor's office. Each room served a different function: apothecary, exam room, x-ray room and developing, waiting room and private kitchen and bathroom for the doctor. Everyone loved the local doctor and it is fun to have locals come and see the space now and share their memories!
