Accommodations


Located 1 block from US Rt 19 in downtown Shinnston, the Gillum House is as quiet as in the country. The 2-story house was built in 1912 and features the original woodwork throughout the house. The Gillum Room has a private, ensuite bathroom complete with the original claw-foot tub and a 48 inch shower. The Harrisand Rosi's Rooms share a bathroom that features a 60 inch shower. The large dining room has over 100 varieties of tea featured at the tea hutch and at least 12 varieties of coffe on the coffee sideboard. Located on a corner lot, the side yard or the glider on the large front porch offer a place to relax. The Library offers wing-backed chairs for chats, reading, or playing chess or backgammon.

Rooms/Suites


The bookcase in the second floor hall and the book rack in the Harris Room hold books for your reading pleasure - go ahead and indulge yourself because your selection(s) go home with you compliments of the Gillum House (please do not send them back). PLEASE steal the books!
The Gillum Room features a 4-poster queen bed with pillow-top mattress and down-filled comforter. The engine and tender on the shelf above the mantle of the now decorative fireplace pays tribute to Mr. Troy Gillum, B&O Staion Agent from 1911 to 1957. This room has a TV and VCR, original artwork on the walls, antique furniture and oil lamps, and several dolls from the collection in the house. The private bath has both a claw-foot tub and a 48 inch shower. This is also the "honeymoon suite" as we have had several honeymoons here.
Rosi's Room is named for Mrs. Harris' grandaughter who wrote her loves on the walls and thus claimed this room as "hers" forever. This Windsor-style double bed has a pillow-top mattress and down-filled comforter. Relax in the rocking chair and admire the original artwork, handmade baskets, antique oil lamps on the mantle and dresser, and the cozy warmth of this room.
The Harris Room reflects the personality of the Harris family who purchased the house from the Gillums (Panek family purchased in 1994) and features an antique handmade quilt on the double bed with pillow-top mattress. Relax in the rocking chair in the reading nook with antique floor lamp and enjoy the original artwork, handmade baskets, and antique oil lamps on the mantle of the now decorative fireplace.
Rosi's Room and the Harris share a bathroom that features a 60 inch shower.
