I must confess something. The fact that I am posting this trip nearly 6 months after the fact has proven to be an arduous task. I simply have a tough time recalling the names of the rooms we have seen and the other details that the guide had shared with us.
Hence, I'd let the photos just speak. I'll give you as much information as my feeble brain had retained and of course there's always google to the rescue as well.
This is how we got in around the back.
The dining room.
Across the dining room I fancied this lighting fixture.
The Doge's suite.
Marion Davies' bedroom. Marion was the companion and the hostess at the ranch. She was also a movie star - haven't seen old movies so I wouldn't recognize her.
Hearst's bedroom - opposite Marion Davies' bedroom in the upper floor.
