The Seven Sisters Inn continued...




A short time ago, we posted a photo of the Seven Sisters Inn, located in the heart of the historic district in Ocala. This is a world-famous B&B, which consists of three buildings, and an outdoor garden which includes a beautiful gazebo often used for weddings.

We ran into one of the owners the other day and she graciously allowed us to wander throughout the Inn and take photographs.

The first photo shows the second of the three buildings. The second photo features the hallway in the main building. The third photo is the dining room, and the fourth photo, taken by Lois Anne is of one of the bedrooms.

The Seven Sisters Inn is said to be haunted and Lois Anne, who is quite aware of these kinds of things, said she felt the spirits while we were taking pictures. They are definitely present, she assured me.

Unfortunately, the Seven Sisters Inn has fallen on difficult times and has been for sale for some time. There was a contract, but that fell through, and now the inn is scheduled to go on the auction block next month.

You can read the details here.

We'll be posting additional photos of the inn over the next few days.

Hello Jacob, this is a beautiful house! I wish I had enough money to buy it. I would have a job and a place to live in your country (which I love). I like cooking, so it would be fun :-))) Still, I think the decoration of the bedroom is a bit "chargée" (too much?). Have a nice Sunday and thank you for your comment on my blog. I also wish I could take indoor photos like yours!

Well... to be honest and no offense meant, I would probably feel ghosts in the pink room too thoug I love the green dining room. Such a shame that a place like that would end up in the auction room.

This place may be a bit over the top but it is really something. They could use it as some kind of museum, it's a pity it has to close.
Jacob, the last two shots are absolutely excellent, you can't see any better on interior design magazines. Very good job and let's see something more of this incredible building.

I love that green room, but the pink one is a bit much, don't you think? And I love pink!

I like the green dining room. The pink bedroom, not so much. :-)

Thank you so much for giving me the link...don't know why I didn't think to do a search myself. This place is something else...I am loving seeing it.
