134 guest rooms and suites with exquisite, ornate Rumford fireplaces, reminiscent of the Victorian charm of rooms once occupied by these “oh so famous” Celebrities.

Many rooms have whirlpool tubs.
Private beach club, heated pool, indoor/outdoor tennis; 63 holes of golf, lawn games, deep-sea fishing, biking, historic tours, and elegant boutiques. Outstanding cuisine from the Grand Dining Room to the bakery and delicatessen, to café, pub, and Sunday brunch.
