Room Highlight: Oscar Wilde Grand Suite

This weeks Room Highlight features our Oscar Wilde Grand Suite, located in our separate carriage house. This room has become even more popular since it was remodeled two and half years ago. To date, it is probably our most popular room, especially with couples wanting to spend their wedding night or honeymoon with us. If you are interested in reserving this room, plan on making the reservation at least six weeks in advance!


This richly decorated salon reminds one of an English gentleman’s library in an old country estate. The room features a pentagonal-shaped bed draped in rich fabrics and includes tufted leather furniture, stained glass windows, a relaxing chaise lounge and an ornate Victorian fireplace. Antique french glass doors lead into an enormous bath area that is the ultimate spa experience. The whirlpool tub is flanked by marble columns and surrounded by marble tile .  The bath features antique crystal chandeliers, a private water closet, and a cushioned window seat. This room also includes a large walk-in steam room with an overhead rainfall shower that has benches large enough for lounging. Some fun facts about this grand suite are:

* The Oscar Wilde Grand Suite  is one of two rooms at Rivertown Inn that features two fireplaces. One is located in the sleeping chamber, the other in the bath area. The only other room that has two fireplaces is our Tennyson Suite that is located in the main house.

*The pentagonal shaped bed is actually a custom made King-size bed with the corner cut out.

*There is a skylight located in the ceiling directly above the whirlpool tub, so that while guests soak in the tub they can choose between star gazing or watching the flames dance in the in bath’s separate fireplace.

*Surrounding the whirlpool tub is Travertine marble.

*This Grand Suite has central air. The rooms in the Main House have climate control air conditioning with individual remotes.

*Before this room was remodeled two and a half years ago, it was the only room that featured two separate sleeping quarters. The second sleeping quarter was remodeled into the larger spa bath area.
