Sanford Gifford Suite

Sanford Gifford Suite

The Sanford Gifford Suite is located on the southeast corner of the second floor. Its centerpiece is Gifford’s marshland perspective entitled Marshes of the Hudson (1876) that evoke the current nature sanctuary of Constitution Marsh opposite West Point Military Academy. The room’s color palette borrows from Gifford’s subtle rendering of a late fall scene of yellow and gold with tinges of russet and brown. The four windows of the Gifford Room bathe the environs in soft morning light, and afford views on Danskammer’s terrace gardens, village rooftops, and the Hudson River in the distance. Our largest suite, the Gifford Room is outfitted with a king-size bed, an ensuite bathroom, and a closet.

Furnishings include a hand-made, Amish sleigh-style in cherry, a drop-leaf reading and writing table, two side chairs, a console table, and multiple lamps. Oriental rugs highlight the refinished, original knotty pine floors. The Gifford Room is equipped with a Mitsubishi ductless unit affording individual guest control of the immediate heating and cooling environment. The guest suite also offers an individually controlled ceiling fan in the bedroom and an energy-boost heater in the bathroom.
