Parlor - Staircase

Swing open the old iron gate and walk through the garden to the welcoming front porch with its classic fluted columns and wicker seating, and you are already surrounded by the charm of this historic Lexington bed and breakfast. Pass through the front door into the entry hall, scattered with Oriental rugs, lined with original paneling, decorated with magnolia-themed wallpaper, and lighted by an antique chandelier to feel that you have stepped back in time.

Pause to relax in the Parlor and explore its collection of classic Victoriana - the oval gilt mirror above the gas-log fireplace, the Empire side table that holds the morning paper, the old brass candlesticks, the needlepoint pillows, the antique books in the massive bookcase. The Parlor is the perfect spot to experience a fantasy visit into the past.
