When you book a stay at the Starkey Mansion, you’ll have access to the historic mansion’s astounding common areas. The first floor library’s features include a grand piano, cozy fireplace and Mrs. Starkey’s impressive book collection.

Across the formal foyer, you’ll enjoy relaxing on our plush couches in front of our sitting room fireplace. In this room, be sure not to miss the stunning Iranian antique rug, or the Picasso and other lithographs hanging on the walls.

With its glittering chandelier and displays of fine china and silver, the formal dining room is available to rent out for business meetings or gatherings.

You’ll feel like a guest of a modern-day Downton Abbey in this room! Mrs. Starkey hosted over 20 years multiple nine-course formal dinners at this 12-person table, where her students practiced for weeks on end to perfect the techniques of the queen’s mirrored service.

The chef’s kitchen has everything you could need to satisfy your culinary dreams: 12 stove tops, copper pans and pots, two dishwashers and more.

Treat yourself to a coffee or espresso at our full espresso bar when you wake up in the morning.

You’ll get a glimpse of Mrs. Starkey’s legacy in our mansion’s hallways, where photos of graduates from the Starkey International Institute for Household Management grace the walls.

For over 40 years, the Starkey Mansion has been home to the best of students taking courses on Household Management, fine housekeeping, formal entertainment, and the culinary arts. Mrs. Starkey’s 1,600 graduates have gone on to manage the private lives of the high-net-worth around the world.

The lower-level of the Starkey Mansion is your place to play and relax.
