Entrance Hall You’ll feel warmly welcomed the moment you step through the stained-glass front door into this spacious main hall. Proprietors Wayne and Susan Sease have painstakingly brought the inn’s past to life as one of Spartanburg’s premier turn-of-the-century private homes. Above lovingly restored paneled wainscoting, reproduction vintage wallpaper stretches up to the hall’s 11-foot ceiling. An antique secretary with vintage telephones adorns the space, while the gleaming heart pine floor leads your eye forward to the ornate staircase with curved end risers and original telephone nook tucked underneath. True Southern hospitality awaits you with an array of teas and coffee provided for your enjoyment throughout your stay.
Parlor The parlor brings the history of the Alexander Music House to life. A mint-condition 1927 M-7 Steinway piano is a focal point of this beautifully appointed room, with rich evergreen walls that enfold you in sophisticated comfort. Sip a late-afternoon glass of wine in front of a gas fire, or bask in the warmth of the rays that sparkle through the oversized picture window overlooking the veranda. An antique game table and Grand Graphophone Edison Talking Machine transport you back to a less hurried time. Visit with friends, curl up with a book from our library, or peruse Susan’s unusual and extensive collection of antique cheese dishes.
Textile Sitting Room Relive the heyday of Spartanburg’s textile past in this relaxing room filled with the warmth of oak and memorabilia from the region’s historical textile mills. Sink down into an overstuffed leather club chair or sofa for the ultimate in laid-back leisure. Grab a cup of coffee and stroll around the virtual museum of historical photos, crazy quilts, cotton bolls, and other textile industry artifacts.
Dining Room Enjoy a full Southern breakfast, including a hearty serving of grits and Wayne’s scrumptious pecan-crusted bacon, in this bright, welcoming room. A cheerful selection of exquisite antique china and other collections lines the matching corner cabinets. Fresh flowers from the Inn’s own garden abound in season, while a corner fireplace provides a pleasant glow during cooler weather. One of the house’s original circa 1904 chandeliers sparkles above the antique mahogany dining table, completing the scene of pure Southern hospitality and graciousness.
