The Murphy House
Bed And Breakfast Category: Western
Enjoy the seasons and historic charm of this three story 10-room home. Built during the wealthy Victorian era, this massive mansion, with its large wrap around porch, extensive original woodwork, carved fireplaces and a round glass turret, has long been admired as one the largest and most interesting residential structures in Weston. The home was built in 1912 by local druggist Frank Hillix and his wife, who have been recognized in the pages of Weston history books as one of the more progressive couples of their time. Moving from their country homestead, Lee and Susan Clouser Murphy acquired the property in 1920. The Murphy’s, descendants of early Weston pioneers, left behind a legacy in the home that has been enjoyed by the same family for more than 80 years. In 1959 the property passed to the Murphy’s grandson, S.L. Ross and today a fourth generation of Murphy lives in and operates this bed and breakfast. This quiet romantic getaway is located only two blocks from downtown Weston shopping and fine restaurants. Enjoy the unique architecture of this home, its rooms filled with antiques and family heirlooms, and whimsical gardens with nostalgic garden art. Sit on the large veranda and enjoy your holiday with the Murphy House. Full breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres. Two bedrooms, each with queen bed, TV, sitting area and private bath. Extra bedroom available for groups and families.
