Fifteen architects designed the individual cottages to combine the whimsical with the traditional and the modern with the historical. Those seeking decadence and a little epicure elegance in the midst of nature will find dual delight in the cuisine and the Spa. Chef Eddy, a featured chef at the James Beard House in New York, alternatively creates healthy fare, delectable comfort food and sultry desserts, with an eye towards creating menus to suit guests every palate and mood.
