The first thing you notice when you walk up the stairs to the third floor is the full kitchen and large open space. It's light and bright, airy and open and much more modern than the rest of the home. Taking center stage is the large wall decoration, a barn door from the carriage house that dates back to 1911. "I love to incorporate things that are part of the history into the house. Making it a piece of art, repurposing it. I love it, I do love it"The fire that happened in 1992
was mostly on the top floor. Most of the now Innkeeper's quarters were a complete rebuild and that's why it has such a different feel from the downstairs. It has a more modern feel with tall ceilings and skylights added post fire. It was originally a ballroom and later was used for storage. "We've heard a lot of stories about kids using it like a gym to play basketball and roller skating on the hardwood floor."
The Offenbecker's moved in shortly before the Christmas season of 2020. Before then they had occupied what is now the Yellow Pig, Piglets and Orange Pear suites
. When they moved out of those rooms, they converted them to the guest suites that they had originally planned for the third floor. That original plan would have included more common areas for guests, but with only one stairwell access, it didn't work for guest rooms.
There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, laundry room, pantry and dining area. Four large dormers kick out like in a cape cod house, giving the space more room and light. The kid wing has its own lounge with a couch and refrigerator. All of the laundry for the entire inn is done upstairs, brought up by staff.
