The ground floor of the former rectory, a progression of increasingly fantastical spaces, welcomes hotel guests and the public alike. We have partnered with the wine-loving folks at Bacchanal to offer excellent coffee, niche wines, specialty cocktails, and a selection of shareable plates inspired by “deconstructed brunch” in a series of lovely, restored rooms.
Espressos and more in the rectory’s former chapel, transformed into a trompe l’oeil citrus grove. Don’t sleep on the super-fresh orange juice.
The heart of our house, ideal for reading, socializing and sipping. The rectory’s pair of grand parlors features functioning Italianate marble fireplaces and a smattering of French and Italian bamboo and rattan vintage pieces, plus a suite of national and international periodicals for your reading pleasure.
The perfect place to enjoy a sun-dappled breakfast; windows open on fair-weather days. The room drew inspiration from the red and white tiles and citron yellow walls of Claude Monet’s home in Giverny. Simple wooden furniture lines the glass walls, which are dressed in full-length linen lace sheers, and vines cascade down to create a verdant all-season escape.
Our chinoiserie fantasy brought to life, a fully amber-hued room with fretwork on all walls and a suspended bamboo ceiling above. Our partners at Bacchanal, the celebrated Bywater wine store & bar, have channeled their passion into an expertly curated wine and cocktails list. Click here for the menu
