Arts & Crafts Hotels

A recent thread at American Bungalow's online forums gives very truncated run-down of Craftsman-style hotels throughout the United States; I've started there and added a number of others. Take a look at the list below, and add any of your personal favorites by commenting on this entry.

The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa sits on a ridge in the mountains above Asheville, NC.

The Black Dog Inn B&B is in Estest Park CO. The Pitcher Inn, in Warren VT.

The Brewery Gulch Inn is located along California's beautiful North Coast in Medocino, CA.

The Lodge at Torrey Pines, near San Diego CA, site right aside the famous golf course.

There are a number of pleasant very pleasant Spanish-revival and Mission style B&Bs and hotels on Catalina Island, off the coast of Long Beach, CA; The Avalon Hotel is the ritziest of the new development on the hill up above the bay.

The historic Hotel Pattee is in Perry, IA.

The Hotel Elliott in Astoria WA has recently been completely refinished.

The Cooney Mansion Inn is located in Cosmopolis WA, just a bit north from Astoria.

The Settlers Inn B&B is in the heart of the Pocono Mountains of PA.

Dickens House B&B is located in St. Petersburg, FL.

Alexander's Inn B&B is located in Santa Fe, NM.

The Amber House B&B is just down the street from me, here in Sacramento, CA.

The very pretty villas at El Encanto, in Santa Barbara CA, are a sort of Craftsman-cottage / Spanish Colonial revival style; also in Santa Barbara is The Pierpont Inn.

The Eureka Street Inn is located in Sutter Creek, in the heart of California's old Gold Country.

Rhythm of the Sea is a small B&B on the beach in Cape May, NJ.

Disney's opulent Grand Californian Hotel in Anaheim CA is Craftsman in appearance and, unfortunately, anti-craftsman in reality.

RiverPlace, in Portland OR, is another huge quasi-boutique hotel whose management, like that of the Grand Californian, believes that to decorate in a vaguely Craftsman style somehow authenticates a very non-Craftsman experience.

new additions: reader Merideth of Housemade suggests the Gaslight Inn in Seattle. Thanks, Merideth!
