The Lamplighter has a total of five guest rooms, all of which have modern private baths with showers, air conditioning and cable televisions. Two of our rooms, The Renoir and The Monet, have their own Jacuzzis. The four rooms located on the second floor have Queen beds. The Monet, which is located on the first floor, has a King bed. Each room is unique and each room has become the favorite of repeating guests as a result of its particular characteristics. We have described them here to help you choose based on your own needs.
|The Crosby Fireplace Room
$160 per night
|Named after the original owners of the home, Dr, and Mrs. Crosby, this room has the original tiled fireplace and the original zinc camed windows. A built in bookcase hosts a splendid collection for reading and browsing, and a small French writing desk sits in front of the corner window, providing the perfect place to set up your laptop or write in your journal while enjoying the view of the Avenue and the Western sky. The Crosby bathroom has recently been remodeled and enlarged and has a beautiful new ceramic tile shower.|
$145 per night
|Dedicated to the last of the great French Salon painters, William
Bouguereau, the Rose Room features reproductions of many of his romantic
and idyllic images of country life. The original zinc camed window over
the four poster bed sheds a soft light over rose themed wallpaper and
bedding-creating a charming retreat from the hard edges and hectic pace
of modern life. Start the morning and end your day in a bed a roses.
Monsieur Bouguereau would certainly approve.
|The Cassatt Room
$135 per night
|The Cassatt room is bright and airy, as were her paintings. That
dark portrait of her over the bed was painted by her then lover, Degas.
Anyone looking at her paintings and his, however, could quickly see they
could never make it as a couple. The smallest of our rooms, it is tucked
away on the Emily Street side of the house, away from the traffic noise
of the Avenue. The bathroom in this room is also quite spacious, and it
is therefore a favorite with some of our regular guests.
|The Renoir Room
$180 per night
|Ah Renoir! What better choice for our honeymoon suite! Innkeeper
Jane Carpenter's favorite artist of all time, Renoir was bold in his use
of color and passionate in his pursuit of life and beauty. It is a
spacious room with a spacious bath and large Jacuzzi tub (complete with
bride and groom rubber duckies!). Located on the East side of the house,
the room overlooks the garden and gazebo. The perfect setting for
celebrating a special occasion or just a relaxed romantic getaway.
|The Monet Room
$180 per night
|Our only first floor room, the Monet Room boasts a King bed. (Though
Monet was quite small and probably would not have needed it!) Colors
here are soft and muted, as were many of his most loved paintings. The
room looks out onto the garden, so we think it would have definitely
been his room of choice. The Jacuzzi tub has a marble tile surround that
makes a convenient perch for wine glasses a bottle of bubbly!
