Possibilities: The Country House Inn

Front View of The Country House Inn

Templeton is a town that I haven’t had much chance to explore, but am eager to.  Founded by C.H. Phillips in 1886, Main Street gives way to an old western town filled with fine restaurants, quaint shops, and much more, many within lovingly restored buildings.  After much research, I am tempted to stay here and discover this little town.  Even better, I’ve found great Bed and Breakfast to rest our weary, traveling-selves:  The Country House Inn.

The Country House Inn says “Built in 1886 by the Founder of Templeton, the Inn is now a designated Historic Site. This old Victorian home has been lovingly restored and we look forward to sharing the gracious living of a bygone era with you. Surrounded by elegant lawns and beautiful flowers, our Inn boasts five gracious bedrooms. Terry-cloth robes are provided for your comfort and convenience. The main area features two fireplaces in spacious rooms, perfect for relaxing or meeting with friends. A delicious homemade full breakfast is served daily in the Dining Room or on the porch.”

The Garden View Room

You have your choice of 5 rooms, each cost $150 (based on double occupancy) – discounts are offered if you pay by cash or check (Visa and MC are accepted).  A deposit is required and if you must cancel, they require 7 days notice (if 2 or more rooms are reserved, a 14 day notice is required).

Each room offers a unique, tranquil setting, ready to soothe your cares and stresses away.  The room that catches my eye is The Garden View – Once a formal parlor, this large room now has a king bed and antique armoire with beveled edge mirror. A window seat is perfect for reading a book or sipping a cup of tea, and a French door opens to a small porch looking out to the back garden. This room has a private bath with a claw-foot tub and shower.  Private porch, window seat, king bed, and a claw-foot tub?  I’m sold.  Not to mention that there’s a private view of the garden.  A cup of tea and a good book is just what the doctor ordered!

The Scarborough Room

The other room that looks simply delectable is the Scarborough room – Blue and white with yellow accents are the colors featured in this room with an old fashioned brass headboard on a king bed. Brick steps lead up to the porch and private entrance over-looking the front lawn where a game of croquet is frequently in progress. Lace covered double French doors lead to a private bath with a claw-foot tub/shower.  I love croquet and French doors, don’t you?

Also available for weddings and parties, The Country House Inn is  “surrounded by elegant lawns and beautiful flowers, our Inn boasts five gracious bedrooms. Terry-cloth robes are provided for your comfort and convenience. The main area features two fireplaces in spacious rooms, perfect for relaxing or meeting with friends. A delicious homemade full breakfast is served daily in the Dining Room or on the porch.”  It’s too bad I don’t live closer, otherwise I think I’d be organizing tea parties here on a frequent basis! 

Full of stylish elegance and tranquil relaxation, The Country House Inn is waiting for you to book your next vacation.  I’ve already got a time in mind of when I’d like to go.  Maybe I’ll see you there!
