Asher Durand Suite
Asher Durand Suite
The Asher Durand Suite is located on the northwest corner of the first floor and provides facilities adapted to the needs of guests with limited mobility. The Durand Room’s west-facing bay windows afford views on the front lawn and a half-circle flower garden, and a large hedge screens the view from village street traffic.
The room is equipped with a queen-size bed, ensuite bathroom and private closet. Furnishings include a hand-crafted, Amish bed in Ebersole style made of native cherry, a reading and writing table, two side chairs, a console table, night stands, and multiple lamps. Oriental rugs highlight the refinished, original knotty pine floors. The ensuite closet offers luggage racks, storage boxes and hangers for guest belongings.
The suite’s centerpiece is Durand’s painting “Mountain Vista,” recalling the cliffs of the nearby Shawangunk Range. The room’s color palette borrows from the canvas’s understated hues of lavender, eggplant, and brown. Textiles and rugs complement this paint scheme.
The private bathroom is outfitted to accommodate guests with limited mobility, including a roll-in shower threshold, grab bars inside the shower, grab bars at the toilet, and a wheelchair-accessible sink. Bathed in warm, neutral shades of cream, beige, and gray, the Durand bathroom features patterned Italian tile floors, subway-tiled showers, granite-topped sinks, white porcelain fixtures, and chrome accessories. The bathroom is also equipped with a powerful, but quiet, ventilation unit and offers a fully operable window.
The Durand Suite is tied into the recently installed HVAC system on the first floor. New windows in period style are fully operable and introduce exterior light and fresh air into the suite’s environment, according to guests’ preferences. The room also features a multi-speed ceiling fan. The suite provides guests with abundant electrical outlets and includes a charging block for electronic devices. Robust WiFi is available in the Durand Suite and in all public rooms, while cable connectors and ethernet ports support flat-screen TV service in several public rooms on the first and third floors.
