The Story Behind the Name…

Pocahontas Room

pocahontas-4The world record as the fastest horse in harness was held by the great pacing mare Pocahontas from 1855 to 1867. (record broken by Dexter) Born 1846, she sold for $30 that year, $51 in 1850 and $135 in 1852 as a sturdy horse who pulled logs in a four horse team. Her owner noticed she had unusual energy, and in 1853 she was entered in her first race in Cincinnati and won at 2:40.

By the time Dexter passed her, she was setting records below 2:20. She foaled the famous racer Tom Rolfe and even won races with foal. Bought by Robert Bonner for $40,000, she ultimately ran an unofficial race of 2:08 3/4 in retirement, many years before that time was met officially

"I want to take the time to let you know what a nice and relaxing time Irene and I had during our stay at Hampton Terrace last weekend. Your recommendations for dining and the Clark Art Institute were exactly what we wanted to do during our time in Lenox. You are a very gracious host and Atticus was a nice touch to the ambiance of the inn………..Thanks from me also, Stan. We had a great weekend and did not care what the weather brought. Your home is very warm and inviting and you are a most gracious host. We have already recommended your bed and breakfast to my mother who plans to visit this summer. I have also gotten some decorating ideas for the home we will be buying soon. Thank you again."
