This bright and spacious corner suite which accommodates up to four guests and shares an oversized bathroom with freestanding claw-foot tub and shower is named in honor of Ann Gorrie Van Valzah, the second lady to own the Buhrman House. A long time resident of Southern Oregon, she owned the home with husband Caryl from 1945 to 1968 where she lived with her three daughters. She attended The Old Normal School and Oregon State University where she was a member of the Vespertines Literary Society and Alpha Xi Delta sorority. She enjoyed gathering with friends and her yearbook quote “as happy as the day is long” carried through during her time at Lady Geneva where she hosted many happy social events including her daughter Shannon’s wedding rehearsal supper and wedding after party for out of town guests and relatives. She too enjoyed travel, flying to Scotland via Pan American Airlines in 1956.
Located on the second floor, the east facing suite enjoys plenty of natural light. It features two queen beds, spacious walk-in closet, and large private balcony with seating area overlooking the front lawn and Geneva street with its signature Brickolithic pavers. The room shares an oversized bathroom with freestanding claw-foot tub and shower with one other room.
This is the perfect suite for a girlfriend’s getaway where you can enjoy friendly chats in the balcony over morning coffee or wine in the evenings.
