This room was the dining room in the original road house. The moldings are original hand cut. The working fireplace boasts the original reeded mantle. The room looks out over the river. Guests may relax here with a glass of wine and afternoon snack.

East Porches
The Victorian Bedroom and Garden Bedroom share access to a wonderful screened porch over looking the marsh and river. Recent guests watched two eagles fight with an osprey near the nesting platform thirty feet away. We're pleased to report that all was resolved with no harm to the disputing parties.
