Ocean House in Autumn

  1. I enjoyed the picture and appreciated the photography but this picture was like a good short story - it told me all I needed to know but left me wanting more. Even the title “Ocean House in Autumn” reinforced that sort of a minimalist approach. Thank you for sharing your pictures and knowing those times when just one is enough.

  2. I know it's a hotel but its scale is off. It doesn't feel intimate. It's McMansion-ey. What do others think?

    1. We think it's a gorgeous, classic hotel, and we think that if we want "intimacy" we don't want it with other hotel guests.

    2. I have only been there once and I thought it was magnificent! (I wasn't expecting it to be intimate.) And the setting is so very pretty. We had a pleasant lunch on the verandah (I remember my iced tea was $5!) And there was a croquet tournament taking place on the lawn. Simply picture perfect. Did not want to leave.

  4. I think "intimate" is in the eye of the beholder. Ocean House looks intimate compared to, say Wentworth by the Sea (Newcastle, NH). It's comparable in size but much more appealing visually (in my opinion) than the Stage Neck Inn (York, ME). On the other hand, it's quite a bit more imposing than the Seven Gables Inn overlooking Monterrey Bay. To me, the most intimate setting is finding an undeveloped piece of coastline, pitching a tent or a couple of hammocks, and sleeping out. To each their own.
