Mackintosh Room
Queen sized bed, first floor

This room has a hand painted mural depicting Bristol’s waterfront painted in 2000 when Mount Hope Farm was featured in the Newport Showhouse Guild event. With some artistic license, many of the town’s buildings can still be identified. Even the closet is included in the mural.  This room offers an antique bed and a corner location with several windows.  The private bath is accessed from the hall.

The room is named after Col. Henry Mackintosh, who purchased the Farm from Nathaniel Byfield and in 1744 sub-divided the property. Half of the land went to Thomas Palmer and the remaining parcel to his daughter Elizabeth Mackintosh. Elizabeth married Isaac Royall, a slave trader from Medford, MA who built the Governor Bradford House in 1745 as a summer home.  Royall was the founder of the Harvard Law School.

 

Miller RoomMiller Room
Queen sized bed, first floor

The Miller Room includes an adjoining dressing room and an antique cannonball bed and double dresser as well as a large closet. The ensuite bath offers double storage on either side of the sink.  The dressing room has an additional bed, suitable for a child.

In 1783, Nathan Miller purchased the Farm from the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations only to sell it a short time later to William Bradford, Deputy Governor of Rhode Island. The state was forced to sell the Farm to discharge the balance of pay due to officers and soldiers of the Continental Battalions. The room includes an adjoining dressing room and full bath
