~ Jefferson's Bunk ~
Sleeps 2, potentially 3 or even 4!
We surely can't represent our esteemed forebear and neighbor slept here, but he certainly would admire our bunk-style twin beds, which will be curtained for additional privacy.
Let the kids repair to this room whilst the "adults" frolic below!
(Games for the generations and old-fashioned books reside here ...)
Another view from our upper Stair Hallway looking into Jefferson's Bunk ... so MANY places to take photographs and simply hang out in Foxtrot ... a true period home!
~ Proceed down a slight flight of steps to the original Maids' Quarters ~
This is, perhaps, the sweetest part of the house! If there are some who have children or who'd simply like a bit of separation, The Maids' Quarters will suit perfectly! Next to our Jefferson Bunk
with another full bath, there's a separate back staircase leading directly down to the Kitchen.
There are two simple bedrooms within the Quarters along with a fabulous Bath:
