The Rapunzel Suite is located on the third floor and is one of our larger bedrooms. It has a queen-sized bed with the headboard canopy created from a portion of window molding from an 18th-century French mansion. A TV on a stand is available to view your favorites on Netflix. For the adventuresome couple, a short passageway leads onto an open balcony in the oriel. Guests have a wonderful view of Front Street and downtown Milford from here. A newly renovated bathroom which contains a shower and a slipper bathtub is located within the suite as well. The rate is $230 per night. (There is no sales or lodging tax.)
The suite's name comes from the 1812 Brothers Grimm fairy tale "Rapunzel". The line from that tale, "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair" is spoken by a Prince calling to a Maiden locked in a tower. He wants her to let down her long braids of hair so that he may climb up them to reach her. If Rapunzel stayed in this room she could do just that, because the tower porch is open to the outside and would allow her to gain access to her suitor - if her braids were very, very long.
The Towers Suite
The Tower Room is located on the second floor and overlooks historic Front Street. It has a queen-sized bed and features a luxurious bathroom with a deep slipper tub and separate shower. A TV on a stand is available to view your favorites on Netflix. The rate is $230 per night. (There is no sales or lodging tax.)
The Tower Room is ideal for guests who like bright, sunny rooms with lots of window space. The large stained-glass fan pattern window in the bathroom creates fascinating plays of light in the room. In one corner of the Tower Room there is a small, circular sitting area. This is the enclosed interior space of the corner tower (technically an "oriel") that is a defining feature of the building's exterior. These rooms provide excellent views onto the historic buildings of Front Street.
Guest desiring two bedrooms with a shared bathroom can use the adjoining Burton Room which has twin beds. The rate for the use of both rooms is $300 per night.
The Garden Room is located on the second floor and overlooks the garden. It has a queen size bed, a large window seat and a sitting area with comfortable swivel chairs. The bathroom has been recently renovated adding the luxury of modern facilities but keeping the charm of a Victorian bathroom. While the bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom and is private, it is accessed via the hall. A TV on a stand is tucked away in the closet and can be easily positioned to view your favorites on Netflix. The rate is $190 per night. (There is no sales or lodging tax.)
This is the quietest guestroom as it is on the garden side of the house. Most of one wall is taken up with a triple window and window seat that faces north and provides an excellent view of the garden. Over the bed hangs a painting on a large porcelain disk. It depicts the goddess Venus (or Aphrodite) and her son Cupid (or Eros). The goddess, who is jealous of the beauty of a mortal woman named Psyche, is sending her son off to use his golden arrows to cause Psyche to fall in love with the ugliest man on earth. (Cupid agreed--but then fell in love with Psyche after he accidentally pricked himself with his arrow!)
Bird's Nest Suite
The Bird's Nest Suite is located on the third floor. It is often used as our honeymoon suite. It has a queen size bed with a beautifully carved walnut headboard. There are two sitting areas. A TV on a stand is tucked away in the closet and can be easily positioned to view your favorites on Netflix. A modern bathroom (with shower) is located within the suite. The rate is $210 per night. (There is no sales or lodging tax.)
Appropriate for a honeymoon suite, the Bird's Nest is decorated with prints of Raphael's puti (cherubs), a daguerreotype of a little girl, a 19th century painting of a mother sheltering her two infants and a fetching statue of a nude with parrots-sculpted by an Austrian and discovered by the Bonds in Cape Town, South Africa.
Tower & Burton Room Combined Suite
This combination of the Tower Room (with a Queen bed) and the Gov. Burton Room (with Twin Beds) is provided for guests with children (14 years or older) or guests needing two bedrooms. The bathroom between the two bedrooms is directly accessible from each bedroom. The rate for these combined rooms is $300 per night.
