Upstairs, on the first floor, 3 bedrooms can be found. A double bedroom outfitted with a queen bed, fireplace, and an ensuite bathroom with a large double shower bathroom. A twin bedroom (that can also be made into a queen), with an ensuite bathroom. And a bedroom with a queen bed, ensuite bathroom, and adjoining living room and large fireplace.
