St. Francis Room

$100 / night

Named after an order of Catholic nuns who occupied the home in the earlier 1920’s when it was converted to a Convent as part of the St. John’s College complex. The St. Francis bedroom offers 8-foot windows that face North and overlook North Huron Street. The butterscotch colored ceiling showcases historic reprint wallpaper and compliments the cream walls—a wonderful view in the morning when you lay awake looking up. An antique double bed and wicker chair make it easy to slip into your book or watch TV. Guests have a private bath located down the hall from the room. The bath has marble floors and a walk-in shower featuring Pewabic face tiles that the owner has named “Morning and Night” for obvious reasons when you see them. Pewabic Tile and Pottery, founded at the height of the Arts & Crafts movement in 1903 by Michigan artist Mary Stratton, is still produced in the Indian Village historic district of Detroit. Amenities include a TV with cable access, air conditioning, an alarm clock and a blow dryer. Guests have access to a second floor refrigerator and a beverage maker for 24 hour access to coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.
