The Kate Pearl Tea Room has four main rooms from which to choose, each with its own unique style. Additional outdoor seating available, weather permitting. Our study currently features the work of local artists.
SEATS SIXTEEN GUESTS
Lydia’s Room…named for the first lady of the historic home, this room has a more formal setting and has the capacity to seat 16 guests.
The Magnolia Room
SEATS TWELVE TO FOURTEEN GUESTS
The Magnolia Room…charming “old south” garden room with rattan chairs and lots of greenery; seating capacity of 12 to 16 guests. The veranda (opened as weather permits) adjoins this room and affords guests the opportunity to overlook the beautiful grounds surrounding the inn.
These two new rooms, located on the second floor, are adjacent to one another and can be utilized for larger parties.
The Winchester Room
SEATS SIXTEEN GUESTS
The Winchester Room was once the parlor and is named after Westminster’s founder, William Winchester. Accomodates 14 guests. (The Winchester Room is handicapped accessible.)
SEATS FOURTEEN GUESTS
The Study with its antique books and memorabilia, red brick walls, and navy and white décor, this room was once an outside porch and is full of charm. Can accommodate up to 16 guests.
The Book Nook
Browsers will find tea resource books, cookbooks, tea party information, and books on tea etiquette. We are especially delighted to once again feature the Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs; a must read for tea lovers.
The Little House
A Tearoom especially for children…
“The Little House” is located adjacent to the main inn… the perfect venue for children’s parties, ages 5 to 12. Children visit the loft to don their hats, gloves, and boas (or neckties) and then join your hostess downstairs for afternoon tea, which includes a teapot cake for dessert.
Cost for “Little House Parties”: $185.00 (inclusive) for a maximum of 10 children.
The Tea Shoppe
Located in the old kitchen of the inn, the Tea Shoppe is reminiscent of an English tea shop where guests can select from an extensive line of fine teas, including our own blends.
Our Gift Shop… guests will want to save time to for a trip upstairs to browse our fine china, teaware, and gourmet foods. Gift baskets are available for purchase, or a custom basket created while you enjoy your afternoon tea.
