A simple question - What is a bedroom?

What is a bedroom?  Contrary to what many sellers believe a bedroom is not just any room with a bed in it?

I had an owner tell me this week her house had four bedrooms.  As I was leaving I asked her again about the bedroom count.  She explained that I was missing the last one.

Then I remembered.

It was the "bedroom" that had the fireplace and the sliding glass doors and the dining table on the other side of the room and was open to the foyer. 

Silly me... I thought it was the living room!

So what is a bedroom?   First of all I can not locate a national standard anywhere.  What do I go by myself as a real estate agent?  In my opinion a space may be considered a bedroom if it has a door that can be closed, a window, and a closet.  Many of the agents I have dealt with consider the key to be the closet and door.

I guess the thing most agree on is what is not a bedroom
