Our first floor room, (the royal room), is named after Frances Perkins, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Secretary of Labor, 1933-1945 and the first woman to serve as a cabinet secretary. She was the principal architect of the New Deal, credited with formulating policies to shore up the national economy following the nation’s most serious economic crisis and helping to create the modern middle class. She was in every respect a self-made woman who rose from humble New England origins to become America’s leading advocate for industrial safety and workers’ rights. She graduated from Mt. Holyoke College in 1902.
This room features a four poster mahogany bed with a wonderfully comfortable queen sized mattress, dresser and armoire, a comfortable wing backed chair, electric fireplace, mosaic tiled hearth and fireplace surround. The private bathroom features plush towels, and bath tub with shower. For guests who may have difficulty with stairs we offer breakfast service in this room.
