Jenny's Retreat
This Parisian inspired room honors Jenny Penn, lifelong resident of the Penn estate. Originally her bedroom, this corner room looks out over the area that was once her beloved rose garden. Today, guests at the inn enjoy a private screened in porch that provides a spectacular view of the swimming pool with easy access to the deck via a private spiral staircase. Cherry queen sleigh bed, heart of pine floors, high ceilings and a charming European bathroom guarantee an enjoyable stay.
