The Columbian Heights Suite is located in the Ludlow House. The room once belonged to Mrs. Ludlow and is a second-floor beauty with historically inspired décor and gorgeous stained glass windows that offer a view of Summit Street, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and 5th Street. The stunning carved archway that leads into the bathroom is original to the home. The suite offers carefully renovated accommodations with a comfortable, king-size bed, desk and private bathroom with a sizable walk-in shower.
The Ludlow House is a late Victorian frame dwelling of Queen Anne style influence. Situated on a tranquil street, it’s ideal for a peaceful night's rest. The basic form of the house is a rectangular block with hipped and gabled roof, shallow rectangular bays on either side, and a small one-story ell at the rear. Original stained glass is a prominent feature of the house. Nearly all of the upper sashes are bordered by square and rectangular panes of multi-colored glass, while the lower sashes of the stairway windows are completely infilled with small squares of brightly colored glass. Even the semi-circular fanlight of the front entrance is of stained glass. The Ludlow House was built in 1887 for Jacob Lott Ludlow’s new bride Myra Margarette Hunt of Easton, Pennsylvania. From 1889 to 1892, Ludlow served as the first engineer for the township of Winston. He later organized and directed the movement for the consolidation of Winston and Salem which occurred in 1913.
