To the wealthy pioneer who erected the stone mansion now occupied by this B&B, expense was no object, which is evident in the 50-foot-long planked maple floor in the great room, the intricate carpentry on the walls, and the huge stone fireplaces that warm the house on the rare cold night. Original fixtures still gleam in the bathrooms, and bedrooms hold pencil and canopy beds and some fireplaces. Interiors favor English countryside decor, with floral curtains and plush
bedding. An acre of gardens shaded by Washingtonia palms surrounds the house and swimming pool.
