We named this room Irwin after Keith's mum's maiden name, to honour and remember Dorothy's wonderful hospitality.
This large, light-filled room is perfect for one or two guests. The showpiece is definitely the original 1930s bedroom set that was bought at an estate auction, in perfect shape (with 80 years of nicotine protecting its lovely finish before cleaning). The bed even lights up at both sides for late reading. There's two comfortable chairs - original to the house but now refurnished & room for storage & closet space. In the closet is a small fridge, iron and mini ironing board. There are recharge points and a small flatscreen in the bedroom.
Hospitality shelves in the closet hold a mini-Keurig. You can ask for coffee & tea in the & I'll put cream/milk in the fridge for you. There's also a small decanter of cream sherry & glasses for a late nightcap, as well as wine glasses if you choose to bring a bevvie.
Electric window fans provide air flow & quiet white noise, with a window a/c unit installed for the mid-summer hot humid nights, of which we always get a handful each summer.
The Irwin bath has a clawfoot tub as its' focal point. But the plumbing is definitely 21st century. There is a grab rail for ease in entering & exiting.
The vanity is an antique wash stand left by the previous owner that we repurposed, now it holds a vessel sink and arch-neck faucet. Our towels are thick, there's a "things-I-forgot" box of supplies. A wall-mounted towel warmer add another comforting touch to this bath. Biodegradable body wash, shampoo & conditioner are in the tub.
Bathrobes are in your closet & if you need or forgot anything, just ask.
If you like, ask for a thermos of coffee to be delivered to your door in the morning while you get ready.
