Inspired by one of the many occupations of Ira Hicks, the man who built the mansion in 1848, the Pampered Postmaster pays homage to Mr. Hicks’ service as postmaster for the Roxbury/Stratton area for many years and his post office/general store at the top of the waterfall. Was he pampered? We don’t know, but he certainly built one of the grandest homes in the area at the time and there are many records of his business dealings up until the 1880’s. We like to think of him as a forward-thinking bon vivant who spoiled himself a bit with luxury, so we designed this room with him in mind. It is the only room in the mansion with its own private balcony and the only room at the entire resort with an outdoor (seasonal) shower!
Located on the second floor of the mansion, features of the room include:
- king-size bed
- large walk-in shower
- refreshment station with dorm-size refrigerator, microwave and coffee machine
- private balcony with chaise lounges and a great view of a magnificent catalpa tree and the mountains off in the distance
- outdoor shower on the balcony completely enclosed for privacy but open to the sky and up close to the original architectural details of the upper parts of the mansion. Please note that the private balcony that hosts the outdoor shower facility for this room is open all year round, but the shower itself is weatherized to stop once the first freezing temps occur.
- twin-size sleeper sofa for extra guest
