The Chesterfield Grand Suite is located on the first floor. Its historically inspired décor is finished with hues of yellow and pale blue. This expansive retreat has a king-size bed and spacious bathroom with a clawfoot tub and large walk-in shower, elegantly decorated with a row of green diamond tiles. A unique addition to the room is a private porch with table and chairs that looks out onto the woodland garden and historic West End neighborhood; it is ideal for relaxing and sipping on wine in the evening or coffee in the morning.
The Sheppard House, built soon after the property was purchased in 1892, is a grandiose, two-story brick residence with eclectic design. Situated on a tranquil street, it’s ideal for a peaceful night's rest. Signature features include Tudor labels over the windows, a wrap-around porch with intricate design, and a parapeted gable roof with finials crowning each gable peak. The outside is almost as stunning as the inside. The small vestibule holds a Victorian closed string stair, heavily molded wood cornice, paneled doors, and Colonial Revival fireplace mantel. Benjamin J. Sheppard, a tobacco leaf dealer and company owner, was a charter member of Twin City Club and an elder in First Presbyterian Church.
Summit Street Inns is comprised of two historic homes, The Sheppard House and Ludlow House, both within a short walk to the best restaurants in the city. It boasts 10 luxurious overnight guest suites, extraordinary baths, billiards room, event space and on-site parking.
