Room 22 was named after Governor John W. Stewart whose political career included eight years in Congress and one term as Governor of Vermont. Stewart was proudest of his role in the 1860 Republican National Convention when he was influential in turning the Vermont delegation from William H. Seward to Abraham Lincoln. Governor Stewart was Jessica Swift’s father.
Situated in a corner of the second-floor of the Main House, Room 22 features four windows for natural light and a light-grey color scheme. Even with a king-size bed, the room is spacious, offering a large wardrobe, desk, nigh stands, and two cozy club chairs. Get some last-minute work done at the desk or read by the gas fireplace in the winter. The bathroom features a single-person jetted tub to relax those muscles after hiking, biking, and swimming in the summer months, or to warm cold muscles in the winter.
