Additionally, 2 can be accommodated in the Great Room, by using 2 large sofas as sleepers.

The downstairs has 3 bedrooms. 2 of the bedrooms will accommodate up to 3, each with a King-Size Bed and a pop-up Trundle. These also have private full bathrooms, and sweeping views of the River. The center downstairs bedroom will accommodate up to 4, with 2-Bunk Beds, and 2-Twin beds in the form of a pop-up Trundle.
