Lé Chat Room

Notes from Suzanne:

When I designed the STUDIO, the space under the eaves became a wonderful bright room later to be named the Lé Chat room.  Old Spring Farm has been raising Manx cats since 1965 and more recently “Banx”, the result of crossing a Bengal male on a Manx female.  “Lé Chat”, French for the cat, seemed a logical theme for the newly created upper room of the studio.

THE Lé CHAT ROOM is sophisticated enough to appeal to non-cat lovers as well with its traditional Provencal color scheme of burgundy, gold and teal inspired by a French poster hung near the cast iron enameled gas-log stove.  The patterned duvet and shams match the area rugs on the tiled floors.  A bay-windowed nook surrounds a pillowed daybed perfect for curling up on with a book or for the comfort of a third person for an additional fee.

A private balcony, with deck expansion planned, provides bonus space overlooking a pasture which is home to one of the farm’s Appaloosa horses.  Over 60 varieties of songbirds have been observed on the farm along with deer and wild turkey which are attracted to the grain left by the horses.

With the amenities listed, the Lé Chat Room is an excellent choice for an extended stay.

∙   “Inn” room efficiency includes a refrigerator, microwave & coffee maker, clock radio
∙   Adding to your comfort is a Jotul gas-log stove and AC/ceiling fan as necessary or desired.
∙   Private tiled bath with tub/shower, hair dryer.
∙   Satellite flat-screen TV/VCR/DVD player.  A library of VCR’s are available in the main
     farmhouse for you to choose from or plan to bring your favorites.
∙   Washer/Dryer, iron & ironing board
∙   Private balcony with pasture/wooded view
∙   $150.00 Double Occupancy Queen-size pillow-top mattress
∙   Full breakfast included
∙   $25.00 Third guest twin-size daybed
∙   $10.00 additional make-up fee if two guests use both beds.
∙   Extended-stay rate available.  Please inquire.

“We arrived exhausted and are leaving rested and energized.  Lé Chat is lovely - I don’t want to leave!  We counted 83 cats,
not included those in the fabric.”  Alice & Ed Testerman

“I will have fond memories of this beautiful part of our country.  The music heritage is so alive here.  At the end of the day, it was great to curl up on the daybed, look at the horses and read.”  Jean and John Hutchinson - Midlothian, VA

“This was our second visit and we look forward to seeing you again.  We will always want to stay in the Lé Chat, where I feel I could just live.  We love this room!”  Brian & Jamie Jenkins - Fort Myers, FL.
