The Shoreham room is located on the second floor of the Carriage House, which is a new structure built in 1995/7 on the footprint of the original historic building. The new Carriage House is decorated in the same manner as the historic main house, offering a homey mix of antiques and new furniture, but because the structure is modern, a stay here offers some pleasant modern aspects, including somewhat larger bedrooms and significantly larger bathrooms. In addition, some guests prefer to stay in the Carriage House because it has no public spaces … and, hence, less “incidental” sounds from other guests. We feel that the Shoreham room is the single quietest room in the inn (no public spaces, no noise, and it faces the church next door), so if quiet is the single most important criterion to you in choosing a room, we recommend that you consider the Shoreham room.
The Shoreham room is one of our large “queen plus twin” rooms, and so it often is a good choice for families. It is painted a very deep dusty rose color. (It’s actually a hard color to pin down … it’s definitely not pink, but neither is it salmon or terracotta!) The color tends to look different in various lights, but feels very soothing and warm (in the comfortable sense, not temperature-wise). The ceiling shape also adds to the cozy feeling, but without making the room seem the least bit cramped. In fact, we’ve been advised by guests that the room is more spacious than it appears in the photos! In addition to the two beds, the Shoreham room has an antique dresser, a good-size table for eating breakfast or working, two comfortable arm chairs, a mini fridge. The closet area is quite large. The bathroom is very generously-sized. As in all rooms, there is a flat-screen TV and high-definition satellite service, as well as wireless high-speed Internet.
The view from the south-facing window is of the church next door and is quite soothing. The view from the west-facing window is toward Town Hall Theatre and the village and college beyond.
