This room is the place to relax when there is a chill in the air as it has a gas fireplace, large, comfy sofa and 2 leather chairs. The sofa pulls out to a queen-sized bed and makes a great sleeping area if needed. The room directly adjoining this would have been the formal dining area in 1906, but we have decorated it with a long, comfortable sofa,w/chaise lounge and 32e2809d flat panel TV and it instantly became the family room.
