The Honored Guest Bed & Breakfast boasts an impressive architectural heritage. The house was built in 1910 as the guesthouse on Ledgewood Estate, the country home of the renowned architect, James Renwick, Jr. (St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Smithsonian Institute). In a rather dramatic departure from Renwick’s signature Gothic Revival style, his family chose to celebrate the austere simplicity of the American Foursquare / Prairie House design of the equally renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Perched atop a 3 ½ acre parcel of manicured lawns, towering evergreens, glorious old maples and perennial gardens, today’s honored guests will enjoy design elements retained from the Arts and Crafts period. Unusually large vertical-paned blown glass windows grace the first floor, dark oak molding and gorgeous hardwood floors are found throughout, and, typical of Wright’s designs, the natural surroundings outdoors are incorporated into the house’s interior design for both visual pleasure and temperature control. In deference to Wright’s vision, the oversized living room is now furnished with authentic Arts and Crafts pieces.
