Luxury Room at our Cape Charles Inn
Queen accommodation, on the second floor with mantle and sitting area, double Jacuzzi tub and shower in private bath…$209.00 (off season $190.00)
In 1894, Thomas Dixon, minister and writer, built the large house just west of Cape Charles House for the sole purpose of salvation for his family from the wicked city of New York. He maintained weekly services for his New York congregation via rail commute. He was actually our first “commuter”! After 2 years of weekly travel by train between Cape Charles and New York City, his parishioners strongly urged him to return north full-time. Between sermons, family, Cape Charles, and New York City, Thomas Dixon found time to pen the controversial book “The Klansman” that later became the epic film, “Birth of a Nation”.
This is Carol’s favorite room filled with family heirlooms. The largest piece is the wool coverlet hanging over the bed. This jacquard textile dates back to the 1850s and was the color inspiration for this room. A collection of Carol’s grandmother’s purses displayed on the wall is especially unique. The black gathered silk and velvet evening bags were re-purposed from her grandfather’s high silk hats. The brass purse on the lower left was carried to President Wilson’s Inaugural Ball. To relax, a pair of wing chairs in a federal stripe of sage green provide a comfortable sitting area, while a Chinese oriental design carpet compliments the similar color palette. Bedside lamps offer three-way brightness for bed reading. Each room has individual climate control and ceiling fans.
Also, with a southern exposure, the Dixon Room location offers gracious light sunrise to sunset. The bathroom has a double Jacuzzi tub/shower. Amenities include custom glycerin rosemary and thyme soaps, herbal bath grains, luxurious towels and sheets, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the B&B.
