|Liberty Coin Suite|
Up the steep staircase dating from the 1700s, Main House guests discover a renovated loft, with a bedroom on either side of a corbelled chimney. The name “Liberty Coin Suite” comes from the 1798 Liberty coin Sven found underneath the house during 2002 renovation. The larger room has two immense skylights, wooden beams, and two windows, which allow cross ventilation. The queen-sized pencil post bed is an Eldred Wheeler reproduction. The Nature’s Rest mattress guarantees a good night of sleep. There’s a twin bed in the adjacent room and a tiled bathroom with European tub. Our old Cape Codder has some features similar to the Atwood Higgins House, in the National Seashore, and was probably built at the same period: 1730.
There is a shelf of new bestsellers to discover. Guests have been known to spend many hours in the garden, enjoying history books from Sven’s collection.
When people climb the stairs, they generally exclaim, “Oh wow!” One young guest loves the smaller room so much she asked her parents to book Liberty Coin, rather than Seagull Cottage. The suite is perfect for small families who can only stay on Cape Cod three or four nights, rather than a full week.
