Dining on the birch table with Italian inspired William of Sonoma tableware furthers this eclectic atmosphere. The dining table, with retractable leaf, seats up to 10 guests.

The spa is completely private, accommodating up to 6 guests, and offers an enhanced experience with nature as one views the stars at night while listening to the gentle song of the river. The Sunroom opens up to the spa and deck through sliding glass doors and has a wall of windows with a spectacular view of the river. This same room has a couch which easily converts to a single bed. Built in cabinets provide plenty of extra linens and towels for the spa and bathroom. Between the two bedrooms is a Jack and Jill bathroom with soaking tub and freestanding shower.
