About Lois Budrose/Owner/Manager
Built in 1986 as an 8 stall carriage house, Misselthwaite Manor was remodeled into a 3-4 bedroom residence, reminiscent of an english manor home complete with exposed beams, raised paneling, Count Rumford fireplace and many authentic amenities of the time. With its tiled floors and unique wallpapered baths, fashioned after an english country manor home, each room is just a little bit different in decor.
