Featured Room of the Month - The Victoria Suite

One of the extraordinary things about the Red Coach Inn is that every single room is different. Each room has unique decor and highlights special amenities. So to give you a better idea of what each room looks like and includes I will be doing a featured post on a specific room each month.
This month's featured room is the Victoria Suite! The Victoria is one of my favorite rooms at the Red Coach Inn. It has spectacular views of the upper rapids and has over 1,100 square feet of space. But the beautiful views, elegant decor, and apartment style layout are not the only reason I chose the Victoria Suite this week. The suite is rumored to be the setting of a honeymoon murder story! Although I cannot confirm, nor have the specific details of the ghost story, rumor has it in 1927, just four years after the Inn first opened, a man bludgeoned his new bride to death on their honeymoon night! Spooky! Although I have yet to experience any paranormal activity, I have heard guests share their experiences of abnormal temperature drops and creaky noises. Bernie Kopell, from TV's "The Loveboat," recalls his experiences on this week's episode of Celebrity Ghost Stories on the Biography Channel. Bernie shares seeing the ghost of a bride while working one night at the Red Coach Inn. You can watch a clip from the episode HERE.
If you're brave enough to stay in this room it has a lot of great features. There are two bedrooms each with a queen size pillow-top mattress and flat screen televisions. The room also has two bathrooms, one in the hallway and another in the master bedroom and both have jetted bath tubs. There is a full kitchen with stove, full-size refrigerator, dishes, cookware, dishwasher, microwave, and coffee pot.
The Victoria Suite features a living room area with pull-out sofa bed and a separate dining area. The living room and dining room have a stunning view of the upper rapids and you can hear the roar of the thundering Falls. I particularly like this room because the dining room area is raised up from the living room area. I think it gives the room an elegant, traditional feel. There is also a curio cabinet in the dining room, that is full of antique china and serve ware.
I love just taking in all the antique decorations and artwork throughout each common area and rooms. The room also highlights all of the Red Coach Inn amenities I enjoy; polyester robes, welcome amenity consisting of fruit, cheese, cracker tray, champagne, and a journal to share your vacation memories, and read the past guests' experiences.
