Each week we will spotlight one of our rooms for our future guests. One of the most famous rooms in Asheville is the one Charlton Heston lived in while living in Asheville. In 1944 he married another Northwestern drama student, Lydia Clarke, and after his army discharge in 1947, they moved to New York to seek acting jobs. Finding none, they hired on as codirectors and principal actors at the Asheville Community Theater in downtown Asheville, N.C.
The Rose Room, located on the second floor, is a warm and spacious room which was once lived in by actor Charleton Heston and his wife, Lydia. It is furnished with a King-size bed, large armoire, and two wings chairs. Three large ‘curved glass’ windows look out over the front of the house, with views of the sunsets and mountains in the distance.
Other features of this room include a gas-log burning fireplace and 32″ LCD TV and DVD player.
The large private bath has an original ‘oversize’ antique claw-footed bathing tub and a shower surround. Hardwood floors, architectural details, and numerous windows accent this spacious bath.
