Lafayette Suite


The Lafayette Suite is exquisitely wallpapered in a variation of the Ronald Redding papers used in the formal dining room. The suite justly honors the memory of the Marquis de Lafayette who first visited the town during the American Revolution and then again upon his tour of America in 1821. From the Marquis' comment about the city reminding him of the harbor of Le Havre in France, came the city's new name - (Le) Havre de Grace. A statue of the Marquis is only 2 blocks away on Union Avenue towards the railroad bridge. The sitting room is enclosed in gold marble wall- paper. The reproduction mahogany poster queen-size bed beckons one to linger, while antique accessories enhance the enchantment of the room - the purple velvet Louis XVI French chairs, an 1820 mahogany Empire chest of drawers with glass knobs and butter mold carvings, walnut Victorian mirrors, and a walnut Victorian etageres (corner stand). A beautiful Capodimonte (Italy) cabbage rose lamp sits beside the bed. This room has one window overlooking Green Street. The sitting room has 2 banks of windows overlooking the gardens and doors for privacy from the main bedroom. A mahogany kidney sofa (1930's), wing-back chair, writing desk, and chiffarobe cabinet containing the television and VCR complete the room. An adjoining room is the private bath with shower enclosure. It displays a unique faux leather ceiling by Mary Poughkeepsie.All baths include hair dryer and shampoo amenities.
