King Philip Suite
This newly renovated ground floor suite has a private entrance and is separated from the main part of Governor Bradford House by a breezeway next to the kitchen. The bedroom has a comfortable king size bed with plush white linens and a mirrored desk with an art deco feel. Guests can relax in the privacy of the adjoining sitting room with a window seat/daybed and couch and flat screen smart TV. Rounding out the suite is a new bathroom with a sleek white shower and heated floor.
The suite is named in honor of Metacom, also called Metacomet, King Philip, or Philip of Pokanoket, (born c. 1638, Massachusetts—died August 12, 1676, Rhode Island), sachem (intertribal leader) of a confederation of indigenous peoples that included the Wampanoag and Narraganset. Metacom led one of the most costly wars of resistance in New England history, known as King Philip’s War (1675–76).
