After four years of renovations, a historic mansion on Jefferson has been converted to an upscale bed-and-breakfast inn.
The Frederick K. Stearns house was built for a businessman in 1903, the Free Press reports:
(New owners Rachel and Eric Mitchell of Troy) set out to recapture the mansion's original splendor and transform it from an assortment of offices into a one-of-a-kind inn with 10 unique, full bedroom suites.
They plan to officially open June 11 as the Frederick Stearns Historical Inn. Nightly rates could range from about $400 to $600, and include a chef-made breakfast. The couple hasn't disclosed their total spending on the project.
The 16,000-square-foot building now also has a downstairs lounge styled as an English pub and a ballroom for music and dancing.
