The Amherst Rose and Parlour Gift Shop in Massillon, OH

On Saturday we visited the Amherst Rose in Massillon, Ohio for a very special tea event. But, first, I want to show you around Mary Jane Corwin's fabulous tea room.  Please enjoy the tour!
A special "welcome" at the front entrance (photos above and below).
Photos of the very well-stocked gift shop are below. 
Wont you join us for afternoon tea?
The piano "bar" is above. 
The main dining room is below.

These are photos of Mary Jane enjoying tea during travels. 
I met Mary Jane on the 2007 Tea in London Tour when she was working to refurbish this beautiful home in Massillon, Ohio to open a tea room.  It was a very long process with various contractors and health department regulations and inspections. 
I am so happy I visited the Amherst Rose, Mary Jane's tea room dream come true. 
This is one of the best tea rooms I have visited in all my tea travels. 
Please visit the Amherst Rose website here to see more.

I will share photos and details about a very, very special afternoon tea in my next post.....
 
NOTE:
This tea room closed in 2012

I can't wait until the day I can visit this very special tearoom. How beautiful! I hadn't noticed the striped wall paper before, I like it.

Marilyn, the striped wallpaper is in the small dining room to the right of the main dining room.

Beautiful! I love the mantel and wreath in the dining room. I miss having a tea room around here!

Oh, this is so fun! I've "met" Mary Jane through my blog and would LOVE to visit her tearoom. What a stunning place! (And you are such a fabulous tour guide, Linda! You always feature the things I most want to know about!)
