Eight guest rooms include a penthouse and seven themed rooms named for literary couples. They include Nick and Nora Charles of "The Thin Man" series; Jane and Rochester from "Jane Eyre"; Elizabeth and Darcy from "Pride and Prejudice"; Marguerite and Percy from "The Scarlet Pimpernel"; Titania and Oberon from "A Midsummer Night's Dream"; Westley and Buttercup from "The Princess Bride"; and Roberts' own characters, Eve and Roarke, from her "In Death" novels written under the name J.D. Robb.
Rooms range in price from $220 to $300 per night depending on the night of the week and the room. A Web site promo for the inn advises the establishment is not suitable for children under 12 or pets with the exception of service animals.
Complimentary wine, soft drinks, fruit, cheese and crackers are available to guests along with coffee, tea and bottled water, according to the Web site.
Inn BoonsBoro robes and other gift items will be available for purchase at Gifts Inn BoonsBoro on Main Street.
Roberts' excitement about the project was only briefly interrupted when the fire occurred. She quickly got back up to speed as the renovations began anew in the early spring of 2008.
In an interview before the fire, Roberts, who has lived in the Boonsboro area for more than 30 years, said all of the rooms would be decorated in the period of the different romantic fictional couples.
"I want them to be inviting and comfortable -- atmosphere and comfort will be the key," she said in the interview.
Roberts said then she was working with Boonsboro furniture store owner and local historian Doug Bast and also hoped to include in the rooms some of the items her mother left her.
Built around the late 1700s, the building that houses Inn BoonsBoro previously was the Boone Hotel and once was known as the Eagle Hotel.
