The Recluse: Emily Dickinson was the consummate mistress of solitude: a known recluse who rarely ventured beyond her family’s home. She lived and wrote just a half-hour drive from Wellspring House, in the collegiate town of Amherst, Massachusetts, where she penned some of America’s best loved verse. The Dickinson Room is an homage to Emily’s quiet spirit. You’ll find volumes of her work waiting for you on the dresser, along with other books carefully chosen in hopes that you’ll find inspiration in their pages. Discover her exuberant verse and channel her ever-questioning nature as you seek your solitude at Wellspring House.
The Dickinson Room is available to single residents and couples, and features a double bed, armchair, dresser, bedside table, desk, desk lamp, and desk chair.
