Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast
The home consists of 22 major rooms and 4 fireplaces. Ten foot ceilings and extensive handcrafted woodwork is placed throughout the residence. Double hung windows provided ventilation typical for the era. Architectural details are primarily of the Arts and Craft period, but with characteristics of Colonial Revival as well. The home introduced a number of elegant details to Palmetto, including leaded glass windows and pocket doors.
This Historic home is currently maintained as an award-winning Bed and Breakfast by owners originally from Belgium (The Lippens family). The Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast offers a unique experience with refreshing European flair while maintaining the Historic character of this enchanting property.
