This pristine, romantic oasis was the dream of Ronald Colman: To have “an anchor in the world, a beautiful, remote place.” His Northern California Getaway became a favorite hangout for the Hollywood crowd.

Sinclair Lewis chose to write in a dressing-room closet; simply, the stupendous ocean view was too distracting. Katherine Hepburn and Garson Kanin witnessed the wedding of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. Later, John and Jacqueline Kennedy honeymooned here. In recent years guests include: Mike Douglas, Barbra Streisand, Joanne Woodward, Paul Newman, John Travolta, and Sally Fields. Need we say more?
