Antique and Reproduction Furniture fill the Parlors at Dreams

All our guests are welcome to use the parlors for relaxing, visiting, or paging through our scrapbooks that tell the story of the restoration of this old Victorian house. Although some people compare the decor to a museum, in reality the furnishings are all very comfortable and useable, whether reproduction or antique!

Antique Lover's Parlor

If you love antique furniture, you will enjoy relaxing in the parlors at Dreams of Yesteryear. Leaded glass windows fill the large room with sunshine - a room which is actually two separate parlor areas, originally separated by pocket doors.

The front room was the ladies' parlor, while the men's parlor contained the fireplace... and was closest to the dining room. Removing wallcoverings during the renovation revealed another door used to exist in the wall the piano is against now.

A dream garden welcome - the entrance to the driveway is surrounded with flowers along the white picket fence.

The fireplace once burned coal and now is used for cozy wood fires in the winter.

The den is off the main parlor area, and can be closed off with pocket doors.

The den, which serves as both office and TV room (modern technology hidden in the reproduction armoire) is just off the main parlor and can be closed off with sliding pocket doors.

The piano has a history connected with the house.

An antique piano that was moved here by the Maher's is a bit of Stevens Point history as well. The piano belonged to Carrie Frost, a woman fly fisher.  Carrie started the fly tackle industry in Stevens Point with the Frost Tackle Co.  Her company was followed by other companies such as Webers, Marathon Bait, Worth Fly Co.  Stevens Point was once the "Fly Tying Capital of the World."  (Bonnie grew up connected to this business since her mother was an "at home" fly tier for over 40 years.) It still plays, and guests sometimes provide live entertainment.

The "men's parlor" part of the main area is decorated with a mix of antiques and antique reproduction furniture. The "reproduction" pieces were manufactured in 1927 for a woman by the name of Minerva Hilson.  Minerva was a telegraph operator for the Soo Line Railroad from 1918 until 1962. Minerva was married in 1927. 

Reproduction furniture in the parlor matches the house perfectly.

Once used for burning coal, the fireplace now makes a toasty wood-burner in the wintertime.

Leaded glass windows are draped luxuriously throughout the parlors.

The windows peek from behind the curtains to reveal their leaded glass.
