Why it's called the Rarus Room

rarus-4Each Carriage House room is named after a racehorse owned by the Bonners, who owned Hampton Terrace at the turn of the century. They were the most famous owners of racehorses in the country at that time.

Rarus was one of Mr. Bonner’s award-winning racehorses, who broke the world record twice in 1878.

In typical Bonner fashion, the purchase was a surprise headline. The day before, Rarus had been a no-show in Hartford, disappointing 15,000 fans and earning a lifetime ban from racing. It turned out that his owner, hoping to sell his horse that day, had been in negotiation with a buyer, who, wanting to protect his investment, refused to let the horse run. Mr. Bonner, desiring to save the horse's reputation, and fulfilling his wish that all champions be allowed to retire with dignity, paid an unjustifiable fee to add the horse to his stables.

“This thank you is overdue--hectic holiday season, especially when we decided to take a weekend out to relax! We really enjoyed your warm hospitality and LOVELY home. Susan has a creative and elegant touch. I enjoyed chatting with you over breakfast and appreciated all the "tips." We will certainly return to lovely Lenox and would enjoy staying at your home again. I will be happy to recommend Hampton Terrace to any friend who might be traveling your way. P.S. My husband said our weekend was everything he had hoped for, and that was in large part due to where we stayed.”
