We have owned the Bridges Inn for over 12 years and had never had the inn professionally photographed. We recently had Mark Corliss Photography / Multi-media Creations over for a day to photograph the inside of the inn. One of the benefits of waiting so long is that we have enhanced the rooms with changes such as new furnishings, bedspreads, wallpaper, and refinished hardwood floors over the years.
The main motive for getting professional photographs of the rooms was to update our website, which we are in the process of doing. Meanwhile, I am offering a sneak preview of the interior of the inn.
Guests enjoy hanging out in the double parlor, whether to socialize or play board-games with friends or to listen to music or watch TV. There's also a computer with a printer for guest use. And note on the lower left corner of the photo is our 70+ year old Christmas cactus, still in bloom.

The formal dining room is where our bountiful, scrumptious, breakfasts are served on bone china with sterling silver and linen tablecloth and napkins. Guests also use the dining room during the day for coffee, tea, a snack, or simply to chat with one another.

All of our guest rooms are named for the nearby covered bridges. Each guest room is uniquely decorated and has plenty of amenities, such as in-room coffee makers, complimentary bottled water and chocolates, and air conditioning in warmer months.
The Coombs Bridge Room has an antique wood queen-size bed with pillow-top mattress with warm green and gold décor, cable TV, and a private (en suite) bathroom.

The Slate Bridge Room has a brass queen-size bed with pillow-top mattress and the Victorian pink and white décor give the feeling of centuries past. The private (en suite) bathroom has a bath tub in addition to a shower.
