In its previous life, the Gamekeeper’s Cottage was a simple appendage to the Mayor’s House, the romantic 1740′s suite which fronts Main Street
By adding the folly of an outdoor dining pavilion where one can have breakfast while gazing out at the view, the “appendage” has taken on a new life. Guests tell us they feel as if they are on safari as they watch the deer come to eat the apples from the trees all around. The enormous sense of serenity and closeness to nature extends to the interiors as well. Done in what we refer to as “elegant rusticity” with wood paneling, a gorgeous stone fireplace, and loft bedroom with a second bath, the place feels like an adult’s fantasy of a tree house. The amazement of it all is that it’s just a few steps away from our main building — yet so far removed.
