Forgive me for being away for a day. Sam and I made it safely to Boston yesterday afternoon and then zipped on over to Cambridge as a pit stop to visit Daddy Bob and Mom Judy in Maine. (You are probably thinking - a city girl like you in the woods?! Yeah, you and me both.) Daddy Bob and and Mom Judy are my sister Grace's husband's parents - they've built an awesome eco-friendly house in the woods. (I'm talking solar panels, people!)
Lobby had leather chairs and sofas with interesting paintings:
Couldn't get away from the quilts:
By the stairs there was a big shelf of books...I, of course, being the cynical person I am..had to ask - are those books real? Can you actually read those? Woo hoo - the answer was Yes!
Now going up to the room...bathroom had a tv set into the mirror....very nice...reminded me of THE hotel in Vegas.
And how can you go wrong with Origins bath products? Nice touch!
As you can kind of see from this picture, the bedroom had that classic red/white/blue theme going on...
l liked this oversized black and white chalkboard. Artist Doug Hilson created a series of four drawings, themed around university community and intellectual life. The room also had a custom created professor's chair, and a hanging peg board that is reminiscent of a New England boarding school.
Things you couldn't see in pictures - the wonderful service that we felt the moment we checked in. Totally hassle free experience - we checked in, in literally, 5 minutes, check-out was a breeze and every employee we met greeted us with a smile. Good service can make it or break it for me and this really made it.
