OVERVIEW of Baker House 1650
Baker House 1650 is the most magnificent B&B we have encountered in all our travels. Designed in 1910 from a 1648 farmhouse, this architectural marvel is a stunning property and unlike anything you have experienced before. Beautifully decorated in period antiques and comfortable furniture, the public rooms include a wood paneled reading room with a fireplace and a living room, also with a massive fireplace, with 3 separate sitting areas. One overlooks the rear gardens, one is in front of the fireplace and one surrounds an antique piano, a John Broadwood & Sons, from London. There are cushioned window seats throughout the cottage and in many of the rooms.
THE ROOMS at Baker House 1650
There are only 5 bedrooms and with the exception of Room #15, which has twin beds, any one will do fine. My two favorites, however are Room #12, a huge room, overlooking the village green, with a king sized bed, love seat and ottoman, fireplace and Jacuzzi tub and Room #14, also overlooking the green, with dark walls, beamed ceilings, a queen bed, fireplace and claw footed tub. Other amenities include television, a sound machine, down comforters, big thick towels and L’Occitane toiletries.
