William Morris Loft
This very private, elegant and romantic loft for two people is located on the 3rd floor and is the entire length of the house. It has beautiful hardwood floors throughout and a cozy window seat complete with over-stuffed chenille pillows for reading. It is decorated with William Morris wallpaper and deep mahogany woods. The bathroom has an extra large tub and shower with a rainfall showerhead. It's perfect for luxuriating in a warm sudsy bubble bath by candlelight. The loft has its own thermostat and can be made refreshingly cool. The large King-size bed makes this suite an ideal place to rest after a long day at the beach.

|William Morris designed wallpaper, fabric and
tile patterns, which have remained in production for over a century. Widely
acknowledged as the father of the Arts & Crafts movement in England and
North America, Morris worked to re-establish the value of hand crafted work in
the industrial 19th century. His dictum: "Have nothing in your houses which
you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful" is as valid today
as it was when he wrote it in 1880.
A man of prodigious energy, Morris was also a painter, and a respected poet who was asked to be England's poet laureate by Queen Victoria, an honor he declined. Morris' other talents included designing and weaving tapestries and carpets, designing furniture and designing the typography for his own books.
|Love is enough: though the World be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining,
Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder,
Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder,
And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass'd over,
Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter;
The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter
These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.
