Built by a wealthy hardware merchant, this exemplary Italianate house built of brick is irregularly shaped with round-arched windows and deep eaves supported by doubled brackets. The expansive front porch, terminating in a porte-cochere on one side, is an early-twentieth-century addition. The name of the inn derives from the eponymnous building in the rear, a gambrel-roofed brick structure dating from 1909, much larger than most of its type.
