History Well Done

In 1986, The Roycroft Inn, as part of the Roycroft Campus, received National Historic Landmark status. Over a nine year period, with support from the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation, The Inn was meticulously restored to its original splendor and re-opened for guests in 1995.

From the moment you enter the Campus and arrive at the Inn, you are immersed in the beauty and unique style of the Roycroft artisans. As you step through the grand doors "time still seems to stand still", at least for a minute. In the Salon you are surrounded by the beautifully restored murals created by Alexis Jean Fournier, an original Roycroft artist. Sit in an original Roycroft Morris chair, read a book by a handcrafted lamp or just wander through the series of exquisitely restored rooms and breathe in the history of this Historic Inn.

Historically accurate elements of The Inn include the guest suites that have been restored to maintain the original structures and design including sleeping porches, wooden blinds, wicker and Stickley furniture. Many of the rooms have wooden doors that were hand crabbed with the names of celebrated guests. William Morris style wallpaper adorned many of the walls and as do handcrafted scones and artwork. The Roycroft Mark found on many of the pieces and the trademark for The Inn was created by Elbert Hubbard and copyright in 1906.
Complimentary guided tours of The Inn are available daily during our lunch and dinner hours.
