The Mulburn Inn - a lovely B&B...

I also wanted to share with everyone a bit about the beautiful 'Bed & Breakfast' where we stayed for one night - The Mulburn Inn.  This lovely home was built in 1908 as a 'summer cottage' for a family that was connected with the Woolworth's.  We stayed in the Jefferson Room and it was large and very comfortable.  It's said that Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe stayed in this room.  Other well-known people who visited the Inn are Cary Grant and Barbara Hutton, the Rockefeller's, and Thomas Edison.

As we arrived, Mary, the current owner and innkeeper, took us on a tour of the house, telling us all about the history.  We found it quite interesting.  The next morning, she served us a most delicious breakfast and we chatted more with her.  There are 7 rooms in this B&B and each one of them is unique.  I've included some pictures below:

If you ever get a chance to visit The Mulburn Inn, we can highly recommend it!

  3. What a gorgeous house! I like that it looks like they were able to maintain the original feel of the house with comfort without clutter. Some of the B&Bs I have stayed in have been so crowded with stuff that it was not very inviting.

    1. Yes, there were even the little call button embedded in the doorframes that would 'call the butler or staff'. Great, huh?

  4. Thanks for the tour! I went to the website, too. I did know about Cary Grant. I would love a stove like that! The beauty of an old wood cookstove without filling it all the time.

    1. I loved the old pictures on the website. The innkeeper seems quite content with her life there.

    2. Isn't that just the best 'quite content with her life there.'
