Penrose has been featured on a Christmas television special along with the Mark Twain House. Penrose has a fountain garden, antiques, 6 fireplaces, and unique chandeliers, lamps and welcoming candles in all the windows. Play croquet, swim, read on the front porch, relax in the hammock, or stroll along the perennial gardens. Enjoy a gourmet candlelit breakfast.

It was Wilbur and Eleanor Purrington in 1900 that had the Victorian vision to lift up the entire house to create a new first floor with high stately ceilings. Wilbur's pride and joy is the magnificent fireplace in the parlor that is set off by tall Corinthian columns featuring ornate ram's head capitals.

The parlor's elegance remains the same as it did back then.

A year round Christmas tree decorated with roses, cherubs and bows takes it's place in one corner while an exquisite staircase showcasing antique family photographs leads the way to the bedrooms in the other corner. The entire room is decorated with antiques.

Penrose has three elegantly decorated guest rooms: The Painted Lady, The Eleanor Purrington, and The Bride's Room.
