Escape to the solitude of this spacious octagonal room finished in shades of aubergine and green, complimented by a French walnut king sized bed (can be converted to twin sized beds) and lace draping the windows. Recall the treasures of a past era in the travel worn hump-back trunk or curl up in a cozy Victorian settee.
Named for Presbyterian ministers who evangelized Arkansas in the 1820′s and preached the first sermon west of the Mississippi. Explore a cherished history in the old family bible or reflect on a favorite psalm, a balm for the soul. The claw foot tub invites a soak which would have been “sinfully” wasteful in 1820.
