1 bedroom | 1 bathroom (1 full, 0 half) | Bed And Breakfast
The Winston Suite is located on the second-floor in the Sheppard House. The bedroom, with historically inspired décor, features a king-size bed. The bathroom has a clawfoot bathtub and spacious walk-in shower with a charmingly intricate bird tile that is a precise replica of Victorian transferware tile imported from England.
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.
