Named after my grandmother Jean, Patriquin Suite is arranged comfortably for up to three guests. Depression Era iron tube beds are featured here - an double and an three-quarters - perfect for three friends or two separate-sleeping guests.
There are two 40s style bedroom chairs, as well as a mirrored vanity and bench. Great lighting - overhead, over the bed & two original, signed, painted china table lamps - & the hardwood floor is softened by an oriental carpet. There is a small flatscreen in the room (although we don't get many channels down this hallway, but most of our guests never turn it on).... parking themselves on a muskoka chair, with a class of North Shore wine, smack dab in front of Lake Erie, seems like much more interactive entertainment on a soft warm night.
Although the suite has no central a/c, there are two large windows, both screened & with double fan intake/exhaust traditional window units. We find these fans deliver both fresh lake breezes to sleepers as well as supplying subtle white noise for a quiet rest. A window a/c unit is usually installed for the mid-summer hot humid nights of which we always get a handful each summer.
Hospitality shelves in the closet hold a mini-Keurig. You can ask for coffee & tea and milk and sugar to be put in your room for an early or late beverage.. There's also a small decanter of cream sherry & glasses for a late nightcap, as well as wine glasses.
The large four piece bathroom was added to the house in 1951 and the original tub and legged wash basin remain. But now this bath is devoted exclusively to the Patriquin room. The new rain shower is set for even quite tall guests and there is another dual fan unit in the window. The towel warmer adds an embrace of comfort.
Robes are in your closet. In the bath, there's a Need And/Or Forgot box and if there's anything else required, just ask.
