Teddy Roosevelt Room
Teddy Roosevelt Room
This room was the master bedroom when William A. Hall built the house in 1892.
This room was the former master suite of the house and features a dressing room and spacious closet. Originally, there was an adjoining room to the bedroom of the lady of the house, as it was fashionable in Victorian times for the lady to have her own bedroom.
There is quite a bit of anecdotal evidence that Theodore Roosevelt slept here (although not in this room) when he traveled to Bellows Falls on a couple of occasions. Stewart grew up a stone’s throw from Theodore Roosevelt’s home on Long Island, and thus collecting his works and books about him became a life-long hobby.
The room features a queen sized canopy bed, working fireplace, en suite bathroom with whirlpool tub and spa amenities, dressing room, and a lovely view of the sunrise over Fall Mountain if you are an early riser and the frequent fogs and mists behave.
As a bow to Theodore Roosevelt, we’ve a hunter’s theme here, and wallpapered ceilings in reproduction Victorian papers. The colors are sage and rust as found in an antique Oriental rug which was our inspiration for the room.
Books for sale here include a large collection of Roosevelt, as well as other presidents and history. Elegant and comfortable.

“A totally wonderful weekend”
… It was our first time staying at a B&B and The Readmore Inn was absolutely perfect. Wonderful people! Amazing food! Beautiful place! We had a great time exploring the area, but I think I could’ve been totally happy spending all day at the Inn exploring the endless books and quilts and artwork…Reyna D.
