History Of The Inn

The house was built in 1870 by Judge James P. Woods, and occupied by the Woods' family for 60+ years. When we took possession of the property in November of 2004 we became the 5th owners of this remarkable estate throughout the course of its +130 year history, and while some things have changed, the care and devotion to the heritage of this beautiful home remains very much in evidence.

Originally heated by coal, each room had its own fireplace, an aesthetic feature that remains to this day. In the 1940s the heating system was converted to central forced air. Today, we enjoy a comfortable year round climate-controlled environment with central heating and air conditioning, complemented by the graceful charm of true working fireplaces.

Structurally there has been only one significant addition to the home. In 1904, Judge Woods added a large Dining Room to one side of the rear of the house, and in turn incorporated the original Music and Dining Rooms into the much larger space we see today in the Ballroom. Other improvements have been made over the years, and today the home offers the best of modern convenience while remaining true to its heritage.

The Swimming Pool was added in the early 1960s, and is still today one of the area's largest private pools. In the summer of 2005 the heated pool was converted to salt water, much to the delight and enjoyment of our guests, and is operated on an extended seasonal basis.

With the past fused comfortably to the present, the legacy of this home is something we take great pride in, and we invite you to share in a rare glimpse of over 130 years of history.For rate information during other seasons, please visit http://www.stewarthouseinn.com/rooms.html.
