Screen Door Inn
Historic Charm...Comfort of Home
The Screen Door Inn is located in downtown Clifton, Texas. Six of the seven guest rooms are on the second floor of the historic Brooks Block (or Brooks Building). The corner room (now called Bosque room) was the office of dentist P.F. Gould both before and after the fire. The restored claw-foot tub in Bosque was found in the single bathroom once serving ten guest rooms. The wooden sign of Dr. O.M. Olson, who died in 1935, was found in the rafters during renovation. The Lobby and several guest rooms feature headboards, tables and benches crafted by local artisans from doors and wood salvaged during renovation. Breakfast will be served downstairs in Somethin's Brewing. This is the sight of the old Corner Pharmacy, which served Clifton under many different names from the late 1800's through the 1960. Many of its historic features have been retained including the soda fountain, Italian marble bar, bar stools and stained glass bar back. Historical Features Housed in the historic Brooks Building, which was built in the early 1900's, the Screen Door Inn has tried to retain the historic charm of the building while offering a comfortable guest experience. The second-floor guest rooms now occupy the portion of the building that remained vacant for over 50 years.
SCREEN DOORS - The inn takes its name from the screen doors that once provided air circulation before the days of HVAC. The original screen doors have been restored and are hung on all room entry doors. On a cool day you may want to open a window and give it a try.
HALLWAY -The hallway offers the best representation of a step back in time. The beaded ceiling, bead board walls, and pine floors are all original. The non-entry doors are restored originals, featuring original hardware. Pictures of historic Bosque County line the hallway to add to the feel of the early 1900's.
HARDWOOD FLOORS - Five of the upstairs rooms feature original wood floors. The red pine has been beautifully restored, but still shows many signs of years of wear.
EXPOSED ROCK / BRICK - The Lobby wall and Jennie's Garden offer a partial look at the rock walls that survived the fire of 1906. While the original windows had to be replaced, their removal provided partial exposure of the brick walls in several rooms.
CLAW-FOOT TUB - While the upstairs was virtually vacant when purchased, the only bathroom contained a claw-foot tub which has been restored and is now located in the Bosque room. A second restored tub was installed in the Heritage room.
LOBBY MIRROR - The 9-foot mirror located on the Lobby wall once hung in the Corner Pharmacy (now Somethin's Brewing). The origin is unknown, but is estimated to be about 100 years old.
STAIRWAY - The second run of the stairway is original and shows the years of wear. The plaster wall of the stairway features years of name and initial carvings.
