The Knox room has windows facing north, east, and west, and is a large suite with a queen bed in the main room, and a twin bed in the second small room. It includes A/C and a small private bathroom with a tiled shower. The sweet, second room is a great place to relax with a book on the twin bed, banked with pillows. There is a $45 additional charge for a third person.
This guest suite features gracious touches such as grandmother’s dressing table and a lovely blown glass lamp Deborah found on the North Fork. The custom duvet and pillow shams on the queen-sized bed in the main room are backed by a headboard made from an antique mantel. This large second-floor room has a bird’s-eye view of the large Norfolk Pine in the front garden. There are also views over the terraced iris and day lily garden from the east facing, second room which has a country cottage feeling to it.
The General Henry Knox room is so named because the Inn at Green River is situated on the Knox Trail. Guests can see several bronze and granite markers, one just a few hundred yards from the Inn, and one 2 miles down the road at the Massachusetts state line, commemorating an event that was a turning point in the Revolutionary War. The bronze tablet on the markers features a bas relief map of the route, an image of cannon being dragged by ox sled through the snow, and the words:
“Through this place passed General Henry Knox in the winter of 1775 – 1776 to deliver to General George Washington at Cambridge the Train of Artillery from Fort Ticonderoga used to force the British army to evacuate Boston.”
