Spotted in a recent Travel + Leisure issue (May '09), we were first struck by the budget price (doubles starting from $95), then by the room styles, heavy on refined patterns, blues, browns, clean lines and rich details.

...while the farmhouse kitchen encourages cooking and communal dining. We want to visit!
