Reynolds Mansion's Guest Room Debut, Reynolds Mansion B&B, Bellefonte, PA
The seventh guest room at the Reynolds Mansion B&B is almost complete. The "New York" Room was inspired by the owners' love for all that New York City has to offer. In fact, all of the artwork was purchased on the streets of New York, mostly from sidewalk vendors and souvenir shops. The ceiling fixture mimics an upside down skyscraper while the bathroom lighting, with it's filament bulbs, evokes images of the subway stations. The original white subway tile, claw foot tub, and marble surrounds in the spacious bathroom seem to fit perfectly with the New York theme. Please check out the rest of our pictures on our Facebook page as this room is not yet listed on the website.
