Sarah Orne Jewett House

Guest Room

The guest room in Sarah Orne Jewett’s home would have been much used in her day. Friends were central to Sarah’s life, and modern travel by railway made out-of-town visits relatively convenient.

Sarah herself makes mention of staying in this room for a time, during the declining health of her last years.  It may have been easier to care for her in this bright and easily accessed space than her own room.
