Wm. Fox Two Bedroom Suite
I only saw the suite (can't remember the name exactly) in the back of the house, which had two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. A semi-public hallway (though never used by anyone but us) between the rooms and the bath, but lovely and comfortable and perfect to give us and our kids the privacy but proximity we wanted.
