We’ll begin our tour of Six Chimneys & A Dream with the view of the front of the house. We have begun our new paint job, and are looking forward to the finished product.
You can spend time relaxing in the front yard in the Adirondack chairs.
Here is the view from the chairs, looking over to Tenney Mountain.
Here is a view of the length of the house. Guests enter through the side door, and find themselves in the Dreamer’s Den.
The Dreamer’s Den has historical and local literature for guests to peruse, in addition to plenty of books, games, puzzles, and cable TV. guests can also access wifi throughout most of the B&B. The woodstove keeps it warm and cozy when it’s chilly outside.
From the den, we go down the steps to the Tavern Room. There is a small bar here for those who bring beverages and want an authentic tavern experience.
There is also a piano and, of course, more books. The Victorian Stove in the Tavern Room dates back to the 1800s, and there are old farm items displayed on the barn board walls.
From the tavern, we enter the wide center hallway.
The front door opens into the center hallway, where our gift shop A Dream Within A Dream begins.
A Dream Within A Dream is in the old parlor room and contains the work of 11 crafters/artists at present. It also has photos and sample quilts on display, for those who would like to commission a truly special quilt based on one they see.
The center of the room is fairly open to serve as our space for private dance lessons and practice.
We go back up the steps to enter the Dining Room. The tables are arranged so you may have a private conversation, but also near enough that conversations between tables can easily take place (and usually do!)
The Dining Room features two corner hutches, vintage tablecloths, a large hutch from Spain, and a woodstove for those chilly mornings. A Guest Fridge is also available for your convenience. Early morning Coffee and tea are ready when you are.
From the dining room, we proceed upstairs towards the front of the house. We go back down a few steps into the 1800's addition, and see the little sitting area in the front hall.
On the left, we have the Grey Room, a large bedroom with a queen bed, plenty of drawer space, a traveling trunk, and a comfortable chair for reading and relaxing. The sun lights up this room in the late morning and afternoon. A/C is available in the summer.
The private bathroom has a shower and is located just outside the room in the hallway. A twin Bed may be added to the Grey room to accommodate a 3rd guest.
Across the hall on the right is the Pink Room. It is also a large room with a queen bed, and has a twin bed for a child. It has an antique dresser and travel trunk as well as a comfortable chair for reading and relaxing. This room is bright and sunny in the afternoon. It has A/C available in the summer.
Up the stairs in the Pink Room is a ¾ bath which connects to the Yellow Room. The bath is private unless a family occupying both the Pink and yellow rooms opts to share it.
walking down the hall, we come to the Yellow Room. It opened in June 2007 after repairing the plaster ceiling and getting a fresh coat of paint. its newest renovation in 2010 includes a beautiful 3/4 private bath.
The Yellow Room has two twin beds, an antique travel trunk, and a comfortable armchair for reading and relaxing. families traveling on a budget may opt to just share the adjoining bath with the pink room.
Leaving the yellow room, we cross the hall and enter the Blue Room.
The Blue Room has a queen sized sleigh bed, an antique dresser and travel trunk, a wicker loveseat, and a comfortable rocker for reading and relaxing. It gets bright morning and early afternoon sunshine. The Blue Room has a private bath ensuite with a shower. A/C is available during the summer.
Taking a right out of the Blue Room, we go up a stair into the upstairs sitting room, where guests enjoy watching the television or movies on the VCR, dvd player, or reading before retiring for the night.
The sitting room has a futon with a high quality double-sized mattress with springs and sleeps two people if there is a family or other group traveling together. ( See the suite option on the reservations page.)
The first door on the left of the sitting room goes into the Red Room. This part of the inn is where the stagecoach drovers slept. Although the Red Room was available for guests last year, it got an almost entirely new décor in 2007 when the Yellow Room opened.
the red room now has a queen bed in a white iron bed frame, an antique rocking chair, chest of drawers and night table, and a hand hooked rug. The Red Room has an adjoining bath with a shower that may be private or shared with the Green Room (see the reservations page.)
The third door on the left of the sitting room opens into the Green Room. This comforting room offers restful solitude to the single traveler, and is a favorite of friends visiting the inn (the pictures just don’t do it justice!)
It has a single (twin) bed, a bird’s eye maple bureau, an antique needlepoint rocking chair, and a needlepoint rug. The Green Room shares the bathroom with the Red Room.
In the backyard, you'll enjoy our wonderful perennial gardens, New vegetable garden in 2010 (Zucchini muffins anyone?), Stoney Brook as the southern property boundary, and the antique barn.
Pike Hill Road, a seasonal unpaved road, runs between the two lots and offers wonderful views if you're up for a little walk. it was the original route into Plymouth from Hebron Village.
Thanks for joining us on this tour ... we hope to see you soon for "the real thing!"
