We will now turn left down the hall past the Gold Suite (door on the far right), the DVD cubbard to the Emma Room.

Other end of the hall,  standing in front of the Emma room, looking into the George suite as the door is open.

Turning around in the hall, one sees the door to the Emma Room, our newest room. It had been the suite that our Inn Keeper was staying in, until we tore the third floor kitchen out and built her apartment.

This suite had originally been two small rooms, which were probably the Brumder children's rooms.  Carol, the previous owner, had taken the wall out / took off the door,  between the two rooms and made one two room suite.
Door to the right once opened up to the smaller room.

Once inside the room - On the left, is the bedroom. Still looking for a rug, but since this picture was taken , new items were added.

It is an antique brass bed. We now have some new pictures on the walls.

TV and DVD player will be moved into the cubbard seen on the right in the picture below.


The  huge, two headed shower and toilet is in the room on the right that has the door open.
Walking back toward the door, and going into the second room, one sees.....


The whirl pool spa on the right, next to the bathroom, and

The beautiful gas log fireplace on the left.


Right outside the Emma Room on the right, is the staircase leading up to the third floor.
Servants and children used this staircase - Up  to the third floor, or down to the kitchen.

Let's go up to the third floor!
