24 John Street
Converted from a residential European style cottage predating the Revolutionary War, 24 John St is the fourth property in our collection and it features seven charming rooms. Original wide plank white pine flooring was mixed with reclaimed spruce where needed, and restored handcrafted wood and tile fireplaces were outfitted with modern fireplace inserts. Historical details are complemented by lime washed walls, handmade wool Modern Revival and Modern Turkish rugs, and custom rift sawn white oak wardrobes with mirror front panel doors and casted bronze pulls. Brass floor lamps have shades featuring watercolor illustrations painted by Happy Menocal who painted the mural in our restaurant.
Historical notes: Built in the early 18th century, 24 John St was reportedly destroyed in the burning of Kingston in 1777, with only its stone walls left intact. In the early 19th century, it was rebuilt to include a brick facade with later additions of dormer windows and a Queen Anne-style overhang above the front door–an example of the durability of original Dutch stone structures and also their adaptability for design preferences of later generations.
John St Luxury King Suite
The largest accommodation in 24 John St, the Luxury King Suite features three rooms and a private deck. The bedroom includes a decorative fireplace, King bed made with Frette linens and comfortable reading chair. A living area features a sofa, table, two chairs and a working fireplace. No Suite would be complete without a soaking tub, double vanity and heated Carrara tile floors in the bathroom.
John St Luxury Queen
Each of our three Luxury Queen rooms is unique in architecture and layout, but all feature working gas fireplaces (two with original tile mantels) and heated Carrara tile bathroom floors. Rooms 101 and 103 have soaking tubs and reading chairs while room 202 has a spacious Carrara marble rainwater shower and seating area in front of the fireplace.
John St Standard Queen
Located on the second floor, two of our Standard Queen rooms (201, 202) are the epitome of charm with exposed original wood beams and stone walls–you might feel like you’re in Paris. Our third Standard Queen room (204) features a bed in a cozy nook and a small seating area and desk–perfect when you need a space for writing or working. Bathrooms feature a single vanity, rainwater shower, and heated Carrara tile floors.
