The interior of the Knickerbocker Mansion is warm, cozy and historic. While the feeling is much more elegant than when the Knickerbocker family lived in the house, it still has the original rustic charm and ambiance.

The original main house had 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the second floor. The present owners have carefully renovated these into 4 guest rooms, keeping the original 1920 cedar wood paneling, so that each of the present rooms have full private baths accessible from inside the guest rooms. The 3rd floor attic has been converted to pine wood paneled 700 square foot luxury suite. Each of the four dormers offers magnificent views. A private exterior deck is a like a perch on top of a tree, complete with private ground level access.

The 1st floor has a reception entrance, living room with original native rock fireplace and 1/2 log stairway. The ceiling and much of the walls are covered with the original wide wood paneling. The dining room also has an original native rock fireplace and original cedar wood paneling. A 2nd dining room converted from part of the 1st floor original exterior verandah brings the outside inside. It is a perfect place to enjoy a wonderful gourmet breakfast, when the weather does not permit dining on the outside back patio.

A full commercial kitchen is the creative workplace of Thomas, partner and Knickerbocker executive chef. Breakfast, included with your stay, is always a treat and not to be missed. "Bistro at the Mansion" is open Friday & Saturday evenings for your dining pleasure, complete with a wonderful selection of imported beers and fine wines. Click the Knickerbocker Dining page for details.

If you must keep in contact with the outside world, high speed Internet access is available on a guest computer in the main living room of the mansion. We say the mansion has rustic elegance and charm with all the modern conveniences, including private phones in each room and wireless high speed internet access.
