Bar Harbor – Estates on a Rock

A cruise from Bar Harbor, Maine among the islands and shorelines of beautiful Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island leads past some of the most breathtaking scenery in New England. From the shear granite cliffs of Great Head to smooth rock beaches, once can see a rugged maritime landscape etched by glaciers and battered by sea and wind. Magnificent summer homes along millionaires’ row, built during the “summer cottage” era of Bar Harbor are also featured.

Jefferson Hotel Opulence

Inside the Jefferson Hotel (Richmond, Virginia), there is a creative (i.e., assortment and range of architectural styles) approach. Every room is awash in light from stained glass windows and surfaces are cloaked in deep colors. The hotel’s two-tiered, 36-step grand staircase is said to have inspired the staircase sequence in the film Gone With The Wind.
