Room Details

The street view side of 1871House's 2nd floor makes up the front bedroom of the Library Suite, a spacious suite whose North-facing oversized windows give a terrific midlevel portrait of the townhouse's neighbors. An original marble fireplace mantle, parquet floors, and a nearly 10' ceiling form the backdrop for this wonderfully decorated, approximately 345 square foot suite. A comfortable Ralph Lauren leather settee sits at the foot of a carved-wood queen bed with rolling-pin headboard, both of which give way to a small marble bistro table and bamboo bistro chairs. Two more marble-topped items - a Victorian washstand and Victorian dresser - complete the bedroom's primary furnishings. The prints of 18th and 19th century ante-rooms and throne-rooms along the North wall remind one of the kind of luxury that the bedroom itself hearkens back to and perhaps makes it apparent why Country Living Magazine chose to photograph the Front Library for their "Inn of the Month" feature back in the day when the 1871 House operated as a NYC-Style B&B. Please note that the Fireplace is ornamental only.

Please note that there is no kitchen or access to a kitchen in the Front Library Suite unless booked in combination with the Rear Library. Provided in the room is a small fridge & electric kettle.  The Vintage bathroom is a narrow space composed of a tiled tub/shower, pedestal sink and toilet.

Things to note: The Front Library can be booked together with the Rear Library and the two rooms connect to each other via a connecting interior door & hallway through the kitchen.  A/C can be added in the Summer months.  Cable, TV, Decorative Fireplace, Pets not permitted, Smoking not permitted, No elevator.
