Our room was on the second floor, tucked away at the end of the hall. Similarly to most of the rooms at the Monhegan House, it was sparsely filled. Ours had a double and a single bed with each a wonderfully, thick comforter that made it a struggle even for me, a notoriously early riser, to hit the floor running on a drizzly morning. A nightstand between the beds, this standing lamp, a bare bones wooden chair, a small dresser and a tiny dry sink filled the room. The walls were washed a ghostly, pale white with not a hint of a frame gracing them. Givin the look of most of the delightful corners in this old hotel, it would have been a nice touch to have a couple of items hanging. The curtained windows reminded me of the lace that hung on Coyle Street. Now, there are quite a few rooming houses to stay a few days in, but this one has the right look and feel of an island house for us.
You could do a lot worse, 12 miles out to sea in the Atlantic.
AND bathrooms and showers were down the hall in a separate hallway. A huge bank of them.ReplyDelete
As distasteful as that may seem to some, everything is clean, clean, clean all the time. Everything. Add to the ambiance of a different life.
Nice shot, Birdman. Says a lot in a very quiet way.ReplyDelete
Love the curtains. Wonder if the owners are "lace curtain Irish?"ReplyDelete
I love the curtain lace, so charming!ReplyDelete
Those lace curtains conjure up a feeling of nostalgia in me.ReplyDelete
Adventures galore, that's your motto!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a perfect getaway! Our recent one was washed with early autumn rain (we were camping) but it still was fine. Sounds like yours was, too.ReplyDelete
It all sounds like a lovely adventure to me.ReplyDelete
You could do a lot worse...very refreshing to in that place...ReplyDelete
At what point in your life did you live in such a room, and with whom? The image and the story have a 19th - late 20th Century feel.ReplyDelete
I like the soft light.ReplyDelete
Reminds me of all the lace curtains ('sheers') we encountered in our many years in England.ReplyDelete
