The Stacy House

 

Built in 1899 and used as a summer home until 1946, the Stacy House has gone by many names. George Stacy, a prominent local hotelier and businessman, envisioned a high style colonial revival perched on the edge of the ocean as a wedding gift to his new bride, Jane Parker. The intricate detail, the bright white color and tiered appearance earned the first nickname, “the Wedding Cake House”. Much to his chagrin, Mrs. Stacy refused to move in. As a prominent member of society, she felt it would be too secluded for guests to come out to Bass Rocks on visiting day. The Stacy House was rented to Jerome Remmick of the New York music publishing company as a summer home for close to 30 years. Thus the name “Remmick House”. After George Stacy’s death in 1928, the house was sold to Catherine Sterns, who named the house “Rockmont”. In 1940’s, the house was sold again to Jane and Karl Muller. They were the first to open the house to paying guests. In the early 1960’s, the property was sold to their sons Gerald and Geoffrey, who over a three year span, constructed the adjacent buildings.
 


The first floor has retained much of the original design. The original sitting room houses our lobby with period pieces and original artwork by prominent local artist John Nesta. The parlor has become our sitting room. The dining room remains and now opens to the porch that has been enclosed as an additional dining room. The library also has an antique billiard table, guest computer, dart board, and board games for all ages.

 

The second floor has undergone an extensive renovation to the guest rooms. Having not been used for decades, the essentials we have come to expect had to be added. We replaced the gas lamps, the shared bathrooms, and the creaky floors with three suites featuring a bedroom with king sized pillow top bed, separate sitting area or room , Jacuzzi tubs and one with a gas fireplace built into the original. Telephones, flat screen HDTV's, and internet access still do not detract from the views. The original architecture of the house has been the design theme and much of the original woodwork and room structure has been preserved.  Visit Suite 501, Suite 502 and Suite 503.
