This is a second floor bedroom in the main antebellum home with an attached, private bathroom with a clawfoot tub. The carpeted bedroom flows into to the bathroom, which has heart pine floors. The custom curtains, almost 12 feet long, are replicas of those in 19th century photos of Everhope. The custom canopy bed was built using mahogany bed posts from the 1800s and is adorned with a beautiful custom fabric ceiling. For preservation purposes the original fireplace has been retired. This room is home to an impressive full-length mirror, much to the delight of many brides. This room is a perennial favorite of the former Governor and First Lady when they visit.
All rooms have access to the common areas such as the front porch with rocking chairs, Dining Room (table that sits 10, keurig coffee, snacks, etc.), Gentlemen's Parlor with sitting area, and Ladies Parlor. Find a few common area photos attached.
Everhope is approximately 35 minutes from The University of Alabama. We have hosted everyone - parents of students, professors, wedding brides & grooms, governors, CEOs, models, actors, rock stars, film crews filming at Everhope, authors, professional athletes, and people like you and me looking for a unique experience.
Everhope is a stunning example of Greek Revival architecture, boasts its original heart of pine floors, windows, woodwork, and even its original doorbell! Designed by architect David Rhinehart Anthony to be Big, Bold and Beautiful. Likely built with virgin pine and oak harvested on site, Everhope sports walls four times thicker than the modern standard. It has stood the test of time. Everhope is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage for its architectural significance.
