I will start with where we stayed. It is the Old Proctor Mansion Inn right in Wrentham, Ma. It was built in 1861 by a wealthy industrial man and his wife. It has been through 4 generations of family and for a while was left very neglected.
A great couple bought the Mansion in 2007 and restored a lot of the damage to the property from it being left neglected for so long. Now it has been restored to it's original beauty.
They left a lot of the Mansion and decor to the original way. They feel it gives the house it's well deserved integrity.
The wallpaper, architectural features and decor and furniture are original to the time this home was built and well loved.
|Isn't she grand. They still have the old horse and carriage hitches out front.|
|These front doors just say Welcome and Please come in.|
|Look at all that architectural salvage goodness.|
|Front and side view of the Inn.|
|It almost hit 80 on Saturday and after a great day we came back and sat out at this little romantic table and had a glass of wine.|
|This is the old carriage garage. I would so be making that into a wonderful and romantic guest cottage.|
|They had a wedding in the Mansion on Friday night so our first morning breakfast was in the ballroom on Saturday morning. The tables were still up from the wedding the night before.|
|They had fresh cut flowers on the table and fresh squeezed OJ and a wonderful breakfast casserole and fruit cups. It was so yummy.|
|This is one of the fireplaces that are in each room in the mansion. Gorgeous architectural features.|
|Beautiful stair case that lead up to your room. This mansion had a beautiful back servants staircase that was beautiful too. I forgot to get a picture of that.|
|We stayed in the Peach Room. It was gorgeous.|
|We had a beautiful claw foot tub in our bathroom.|
|Front sitting room.|
|Main Dining Room.|
|This was the old farmhouse sink in the kitchen. The cook preparing breakfast said wait I will clean it up before you take a picture. I said no we keep it real in blog land. Real shots are the best.|
Ok so you are not on picture overload I will end this post here.
