This charming room is exceptionally private and quiet. It has a queen-size bed, TV with HULU service, natural stone (gas) fireplace, skylights, built-in bookshelves and dresser, and private marble/granite bath. This cozy room is up a staircase from the Lounge, “under the roof” with spectacular skylights and dormers with excellent water views. The dormers of this room offer a wonderful bird-watching platform, hence the name, “The Osprey Nest.” The symphony of birdcalls and crickets through the open windows and the two skylights make this a bright and happy place. Swanendele Inn typically has three or four inhabited and active osprey nests about 100 feet offshore – Ospreys arrive mid-March and typically head south with their young late August, only to return the next spring. The total room is 448 square feet.
In recognition of the quality stay in this and adjoining rooms and lounges, occupancy shall be limited to no more than two TwinXL beds and no more than FOUR persons, independent of age.
Price per Night
$280 + $100 for extra guest of any age, plus applicable taxes
When the current owners bought the Swanendele property in 2002, it had very few birds, as it had been a tobacco farm for centuries then planted over with white pine. Long before the construction of Swanendele began, the owners re-introduced traditional tree species, including oak, cedar, service berries, mulberry and maple, as well as shrubs and flowers. As a result of the diversified plant life, the bird population vastly expanded. Bluebirds, cardinals, blue jays, woodpeckers, chickadees, hummingbirds, herons, orioles, ducks, Canada geese, coots, seagulls, as well as bald-headed eagles and osprey now thrive in the forest and shores.
