Room 4

Room 4 is special to Dan and me for three reasons, First, it’s new. Dan and crew created the woodwork, bed, and furniture especially for this room, and they painted the walls a soft yellow (windham creme) and ceiling a flat white. Second, the window looks onto a decades-old black walnut tree that sends a constant motion picture of shadows in the room. It’s like sleeping in a state park. Third, Dan liked the room so much that he stationed himself at the writing desk and wrote many of his pieces on extreme beauty, and during the school year read Plato and Kant for his classes at Loyola University Chicago.

Here are more details:

This 9’ x 12’ room contains walnut wood flooring, a double bed, open closet, free-standing towel rack, clock radio, chair, night table, writing desk, two lamps, blackout shade, and original landscape art by Randy Larson. At the Walker House, all lodging room desks, towel racks, night tables, picture frames, and art rails are handcrafted on site, and the wood (maple, walnut, cherry, oak) is harvested within a 30-50 mile radius. You can control your personal comfort with a 3-speed overhead fan, A/C, or electric baseboard heat (screen panel also available for window).  You will feel right at home with amenities like extra blankets, night light, and room journal to record your thoughts. You can share your experiences with loved ones via complimentary Wifi throughout the Walker House.

Maximum occupancy-2.

There are three shared bathrooms on the Third Floor.
