Like children, you’re never supposed to have a favorite when it comes to rooms at your bed and breakfast. But, guilty secret, I do. As a native Californian whose spiritual home is Laguna Beach, I admit to being partial to Cliffside, which we named and decorated for the estate in that town where Chris was butlering when we met.
Cliffside is our middle child, the medium-sized bedroom with the biggest closet and bathroom of its three similarly-sized siblings. While we have a loyal cadre of repeat guests who know Cliffside and love it, most new visitors to A Butler’s Manor tend to gravitate either to the less-expensive shower-only rooms (Oak Knoll, Goose Creek), or the larger spaces of the garden-facing rooms (Eton Court, Villefranche).
So we decided to give Cliffside some extra love. This past week we refurbished it with a big King bed and had California Closets (of course!) build in a nice new unit into its spacious closet, which eliminated the need for a separate dresser. We mounted the TV, brought in a cool coastal chair and floor lamp, all of which added floor space to the room.
New professional photos are coming soon, but in the meantime, here are a few snaps I took to show you what we’ve done.
Room to spread out — in bed, in the closet, in your updated sunny California-beachy home away from home in the Hamptons. What do you think?
Where you stay in the Hamptons is an important part of your experience. Come try our Goldilocks room, which may prove to be the room that’s not too big, not too small, but “just right!” Click here to check our availability. Hope to see you soon!
