The smallest and coziest of our classic rooms does not face out on any streets and is therefore among the quietest
accommodations in the main house. Decorated in a mix of floral wallpaper and ivory tones it features windows on two
sides, bringing in a lot of natural light, and giving a perfect view of the Pilgrim Monument which can be quite
dramatic at sunset.
Emily Dickinson was a local poet who was born and died in the Western Massachusetts town of Amherst during the 1800's. She was an extremely private person, preferring to spend most of her time in her room writing, having little contact with the outside world. As such, only 7 of her 1800 poems were published during her lifetime, the rest brought to light after her death by her sister.
