The annual Delaware State Fair combines a traditional state agricultural extravaganza with loads of entertainment for the entire family.

The Garden Room

The Garden Room is located on the second floor and overlooks the garden. It has a double bed, a large window seat and a sitting area with couch and armchair. The bathroom contains a deep vintage bathtub with shower attachments. While the bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom and is private, it is accessed via the hall. The rate is $135 per night.

This is the quietest guestroom as it is on the garden side of the house. Most on one wall is taken up with a triple window and window seat that faces north and provides an excellent view onto the garden. Over the bed hangs a painting on a large porcelain disk. It depicts the goddess Venus (or Aphrodite) and her son Cupid (or Eros). The goddess, who is jealous of the beauty of a mortal woman named Psyche, is sending her son off to use his golden arrows to cause Psyche to fall in love with the ugliest man on earth. (Cupid agreed--but then fell in love with Psyche after he accidentally pricked himself with his arrow!)
