Martha’s is the first bedroom guests usually see at the top of the grand staircase. They are frequently dazzled by its exquisite décor and think it must be our most upscale room; actually, it is our least expensive! This B&B in Winona MN has a full-size antique feather bed with canopy. It was Martha Alexander’s bedroom during her childhood and adolescence years while she lived in Winona. Martha, whose preferred name was “Jerry”, matured into a very beautiful woman. There are still stories circulating about her rejected suitors! She did not have any children and she was Maude and Durand’s only child. Guests often ask if the large antique framed picture on the room wall is a likeness of Martha. We wish we could say yes but it actually came from a mansion on St. Paul’s historic Summit Avenue and the image is unknown. There is an actual photograph of Martha on top of the dresser. Martha’s room at our B&B mansion has a very large 1922 soaking tub only. There is no shower.
