The Rapunzel Suite

The Rapunzel Suite is located on the third floor. It has a queen-sized bed with the headboard canopy created from a portion of window molding from a 18th century French mansion. The ceiling over the bed soars to over ten feet and is illuminated by a crystal chandelier. There are two sitting areas and a "lovers' alcove" lined with pillows. A short passageway leads onto a tiny porch in the tower. A modern bathroom (with shower) is located within the suite. The rate is $175 per night.

The suite's name comes from the 1812 Brothers Grimm fairy tale "Rapunzel". The well-know line from that tale--"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair"-is spoken by a Prince calling to a Maiden locked in a tower. He wants her to let down her long braids of hair so that he may climb up them to reach her. If Rapunzel stayed in this room she could do just that, because the tower porch is open to the outside and would allow her to gain access to her suitor-if her braids were very, very long. Guests have a wonderful view of Front Street and downtown Milford from this little porch.
