An early chandelier hangs above an 18th century oval hutch table surrounded by 18th century ladderback chairs. In front of the large fireplace are early chairs and a candle stand. An 18th century New England pewter cupboard and an early chest complete the room. The main floor bathroom is attached to the north ell. It is a small bathroom with a shower.
