The Rooms of the Cartwright House:

This second floor guest room evokes that cottage feeling with wicker furnishings, a queen size bed, original restored heart pine floors and an abundance of sunlight. Comfy wicker chairs and table provide a  sitting area for two.  Braided wool rugs lead you into the large, light filled bath with an adorable wicker chair and vanity.  The bath has a tub/shower combo.  

This little love nest boasts details of the homes original 1903 construction in the restored, original heart pine floors, a queen sized bed, sunny window seat and original tin ceiling tiles in the private bath with step in shower.  Please note that the walk in shower is small (think cruise ship) and this room is located on the second floor and requires one flight of stairs.  This is our lowest priced accommodation, only because of the smaller, but quite adequate, bath.  Oh, and it has the most comfortable little green velvet chair.....
