Located just one block from Main Street in the Historic District this 125 year old Victorian home is luxury at it’s finest. The owner, Maggie Gillespie, is well known for her artistic talent in everything from decorating to her elegant floral arranging. Enjoy total relaxation on the front porch of the Gillespie House with it’s comfortable rockers and gliders.
The foyer has all the charm of days gone by with its tasteful and refined antiques. A common areal located downstairs is decorated eloquently with comfort in mind……it is an area of mellowness and indulgence for guests. There is also an awesome large limestone fireplace with a crackling fire in the living room. Definitely a highlight of your stay will be the breakfast in the elegant dining room.
Upstairs are two comfortable eclectic special suites. The West Suite has a king antique bed, large secluded whirlpool and a separate shower. The sitting area has large flat screen TV, a wonderful antique sleigh bed (for a third person to sleep) and wonderful skylights above the sleigh bed for that vast feel of openness and nature. The East Suite offers a queen bed, placed under two skylights to enjoy sleeping under the stars. A (single) whirlpool tub and shower is in the bath. The sitting area has a comfy sofa placed to enjoy the large screen cable television.
Fresh flowers are part of the ambiance found in this romantic bed and breakfast. If you are having a special occasion call your hostess, as a floral designer she can definitely meet your needs.
