Tuck Room

The Tuck Room is elegantly restored in colors of honey and mustard with its hunting scene fabric canopy and drawn curtains. Its original floors and Federal-style fireplace are enhanced by floral and landscape 1800s oil paintings, an antique headboard, a writing desk and a sumptuous wing chair. The room is perfect for a big family: it can be turned into a two bedroom, two bathroom suite with the adjoining Phillips Junior Suite. Named for Amos Tuck, best known for being thrown out of the Democratic Party in 1844 due to the Party’s pro-slavery leaders, and, in 1853, forming the Republican Party at the Blake Hotel in Exeter. A close friend of Abraham Lincoln, he is often credited for getting Lincoln elected President.
