The White House on Park Ave (Part 2)

Yesterday we visited the White House on Park Avenue and toured the downstairs. Today we will see what the guest rooms look like.

As we get to the top of the stairs, we find doorways to four rooms. In the picture above, two are out of the picture to the left. The doorway that is on the left leads to the the Cottage Retreat, the largest room that the White House has, with a queen and a day bed.

This room also has a whirlpool tub in its bathroom.
 
Below is a view of the day bed and also the fireplace.
 
Next to it is the Cameo Room with a bed with a huge headboard.
 
The dresser is also impressive.
 
Looking through the door, we can see into the third guest room, the Rose Garden. (Of course, if there was a guest in the room, we probably would not be able to look into it.)
 
The most arresting feature of this room is the old claw-footed bathtub, which can be used as a shower. Notice the spindle work in the entryway. This room also has a stained glass window.
 
Leaving it, we can see the bed and also into the Cameo Room that we just left.
 
The last of the guest rooms is the Bird's Nest, which has a cute little alcove that serves as a sitting room.
 
There is also one other room with a bed on the second floor, a tiny room barely big enough to hold the bed. The Bergers do not advertise it, but I think they have rented in unusual circumstances.

Staying in a bed and breakfast is more expensive than staying in a motel, but it is a completely different experience.
