In a neighborhood of Great Estates, Journey Inn Bed and Breakfast was built as a private residence in the 1960′s, on land that was once part of the neighboring Vanderbilt Estate. A long shady driveway leads to the Inn, which is settled on 2.6 acres of gardens, lawns and woods, set well back from the road. The 5 guest rooms and 2 guest suites vary in size and configuration and the theme is cosmopolitan. Room decor is inspired by world travel and regional history.
Breakfast and tea service is handled with ease thanks to the lovely open-plan design and flow of the Morning Room, Butler’s Pantry and guest Sitting Room. Uncommonly large public rooms feature working fireplaces and comfortable furnishings that create a warm, airy atmosphere.
The Owners’ spacious ground floor apartment has a private outside entrance and includes a bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, powder room and living room. It is conveniently separated from the public rooms by the large eat-in kitchen.
