We stayed at the Ann Bean Mansion on the first night of our summer vacation. We were greeted at the front door by the owner who helped us carry the luggage up to our room! Jeremy gave us some basic information about the place, the furnishings and then offered us a beverage. We went with the home brewed beer, which was refreshing. We stayed in Jacob's Room. This beautiful room had a king size bed and a double jacuzzi tub. It also had a separate washroom with shower. There were a few interesting, decorative items in the room, but they didn't clutter the space or impede functionality. We were within walking distance of Stillwater's main street, so went there for dinner. When we returned, we were offered a glass of wine. The jacuzzi tub had a handheld shower head as well, which was a nice surprise. Nice for washing and rinsing one's hair in the tub. The mansion is equipped with central air, but there is a window air conditioner that allowed us to regulate the temperature better. There is also a small refrigerator with still and sparkling water provided. Throughout the home, the owners have struck a nice balance between beautiful and cozy. Cushioned wicker furniture on the front porch provided a comfy spot to enjoy morning coffee. In addition to providing a wi-fi connection, there is also a computer available for guests to use. We opted to have our breakfast in the dining room, but if you prefer you may have your breakfast brought to your room. Breakfast was delicious! The lemon poppyseed muffin was actually "muffiny" not "cupcaky". This was followed by a lovely merlot poached pear and a light version of eggs benedict. Last was a tangy rhubarb cobbler. I can't imagine a better way to start a vacation. PS: Be sure to take time to read the little informational booklet in the room. It's a hoot!
