In the main house, this suite - named for its collectible posters of Mardi Gras and Spoleto - has two spacious rooms. Lose yourself in the comfortable couches by the large stone fireplace overlooking the landscaped grounds and lakes. The polished brick floors, trey ceiling and awnings give the feeling of being outside; the Trompe l'oeil painted "cracks and moss" on the walls and awnings almost convince you that you are dining at a seaside cafe in St. Barth’s.
Handmade cabinets were made from walnut trees grown here on the farm. The sink in the kitchenette is the last remaining piece of a vintage 1954 Chris Craft wooden boat and is a perfect backdrop for the Portuguese tile countertop.
The handmade mahogany pencil-post queen and twin beds are just waiting for you to enjoy a perfect night’s sleep. Old pine floors in the bedroom are original to the house, and have been whitewashed and decorated with hand painted "Delft" tiles.
In late afternoon, sunlight filters through the restored stained glass window and casts an amber glow on the Spanish tile bath and cast iron corner tub.
Listen to the birds as you drink your morning coffee on your private patio just outside your door.
