The bedchamber at the rear of the second floor, the Green Guest Room, is the largest of the three guest rooms. There is no crown moulding in this room; just a chair rail. The woodwork is painted a bright green to enliven the room in the afternoon when the room gets minimal light. A small casement window on the north wall helps bring light into the room. A highboy provides ample storage for clothes and personal items. Several cross stitch samples adorn the walls. Samplers were typically made by young girls as training in stitching for sewing clothes and quilts when they were older.
The bedchamber at the front of the second floor, the Peach Guest Room, is the smallest of the three guest rooms. A chair rail is the only trim in the room. The woodwork and doors are painted a light peach color. A large chest with drawers serves as storage for guest articles with two prints of flowers hanging on the wall above. Botanical prints were popular in the 18th century. The wash basin and pitcher on the chest would have been used by a guest to wash their face and hands in the morning.
