Room 5

Dan and I have always thought that Room 5 would be ideal for our families when they came to visit.  The parents would stay in one room, and the kids in the other.  Whenever the parents would want privacy, they could shut and lock the door between the two rooms.  Jennifer Sharp’s watercolor art in the rooms piques the intellect and soothes the spirit.  Her three large prints depict the same bed of indigenous flowers in full bloom during three separate seasons–spring, summer, and fall.  Once guests know the themes of the watercolors. they often spend hours trying to identify the dozens of prairie flowers in each composition.  It’s like sitting in a flower garden without the flies, gnats, and mosquitoes buzzing around your head!

Here are more details:

Room 5 is a two-bedroom suite, ideal for small groups, families, or husbands who snore because  a lockable door connects a 9’ x 12’ room (double bed) and an 8’ x 12’ second bedroom (double bed).  The rooms contain an open dresser, clock radio, chairs, tables, and lamps. At the Walker House, all lodging room desks, 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 and electric baseboard heat in each room (screen panels also available for windows).  An A/C quickly cools the two rooms.  You will feel right at home with amenities like original art on the walls, extra blankets, night light, room darkening shades, and room journal to record your thoughts. You can share your experiences with loved ones via complimentary Wifi throughout the Walker House.

Maximum occupancy-4.

There are three shared bathrooms on the Third Floor.
