The Redwood Room was once the master bedroom in the mansion which can be seen in the attention to detail to moldings, tile and intricate floor art. Even the hidden door to the bathroom is unique for this style house. It is the only room where returning customers have delayed their trip in order to wait for a vacancy in this very special room. The simple loveliness of the white and blue tones is almost like the beauty in a Roman Classical sculpture. The Redwood room has no bounds; it is just beautiful for all to see.
The Redwood Room is named after the Redwood Library, America’s Oldest Lending Library, located right here in Newport, RI. George Champlin Mason was commissioned to design an addition on the library which currently is the front of this beautiful building. The library is made of redwood but carved to give the impression of stonewalls. When the Architect’s Inn was originally constructed, this room would have had a clear view of the Redwood Library which prominently sits on the corner of Old Beach Road and the Famous Bellevue Avenue.
Room is beautifully furnished with a Queen Canopy Bed, extra thick pillow-top mattress, and of course our 650 thread count luxury sheets. This spacious room with its inlay floors, crown-molding and twelve foot ceilings features a real fireplace, a full length couch, television with DVD player, CD, Player, alarm clock, antique lamps and wonderful floor to ceiling windows that allows for a lot of daylight. The Redwood Room has a very spacious private bath with an antique clawfoot soaking tub with shower and whirlpool jet spa. A selection of DVD’s and CD’s can be found in the downstairs library.
This elegant room comes with a King Canopy Bed, a romantic fireplace and two comfortable chairs. The walls decorated with classic Victorian hanging flower basket wallpaper and wonderfully appointed Victorian furnishings. The extra thick pillow-top mattress just adds to the splendor. It also has a Television with DVD and VCR with a selection of movies downstairs in the library. The wonderful inlay floors, twelve foot ceilings and extra tall windows makes the Lafarge timeless. The private bath has a pedestal sink along with a large custom shower with tile seat and water temperature control.
Slip into the past in our Perry Suite. Spanning the east wing of the mansion, this room is our largest and also offers a unique history in the house, as it was the original bathroom, master bedroom (for a time) for George Champlin Mason and the nursery of George Mason Junior. The Perry Suite has a duality. Its history suggests an area of the mansion with a lot of activity. If only the walls could talk. to think, every guest who entered the house would have used the facilities. The head of the house slept here with all his thoughts of writings, blueprints and construction projects. The wet nurse would have visited the nursery several times a day. The domestics would have passed through this room to access their private quarters from the kitchen.
However, now it is a quiet room. The romance penetrates every fiber and the silence will lull you to sleep. It gently faces the south east with soft dogwood trees and rough pine trees protecting its privacy. It would seem the morning light would be overpowering but the glistening sun beams are simply perfect. Everything about the Perry Suite is stately Victorian but still there is something humble behind it. The Perry Suite is for those who want everything.
