In The Press

Consider the facilities for a rainy Sunday like this: the room looks out across a private patio to the ocean. A fireplace opposite the foot of the bed, several cords of good wood outside, dry and ready. Lots of crackle. Glass fireplace doors so I can leave it burning when I doze or slumber. The bed's a big four-poster with first class linen, lots of good pillows. A desk, good chairs — stuff I'd enjoy at home. In fact, that's what this feels like . . . home, not a room at an inn. — The Business Journal
