The elegance and grace of The Historic Mansion Inn was built in 1862 by Henchman Soule, sea captain and shipbuilder.

In 1862 it was sold to Mr. Parmalee, co-founder of the Baldwin Piano company. Mr. Parmalee was also the inventor of the sprinkler fire system, which he called' The Fireman That Never Sleeps'. In fact, he installed the system in his own house, so that The Historic Mansion Inn is the first residential building in the world to have its own fire sprinkler system. Some of the original pipes and valves are still working! Parmalee's inspiration was a severe fire in the Baldwin Piano factory.

Each guest room has its original marble fireplace, initially installed as the mansion heating system but now impressively decorative, and its own private shower bath.

New furniture period pieces are replicas of Queen Anne style: four-posters high rise queen-sized bed; cherry wood armoire; sitting area with gooseneck stuffed chairs; writing desk and chair. All providing a unique ambiance.

Besides the building's originality and history, guests can now also enjoy creature comforts and serenity. Relax in deeply padded armchairs and period couches in one of the elegant living rooms connected through twelve-foot archways and mahogany double doors.

Enjoy a full sit down breakfast in the imposing sixteen by twenty seven feet
dining room.

Retire with your favorite book to the private sitting area of your bedroom.
