I recently finished reading Nora Roberts' The Next Always. It was absolutely wonderful, and is the inspiration for this edition of "travel inspiration".
The book is the first in a trilogy set in Boonsboro, MD. It revolves around three brothers and 3 women friends (very convenient, considering it's a trilogy, don't-ya-think?). I will tell you nothing more, other than the fact that the brothers are in the middle of restoring an old historic building to well-deserved glory. The building is to be the Inn Boonsboro, a unique hotel with each room bearing a name and theme. I was thrilled when I found out the Inn is no work of fiction, and is actually owned by Nora Roberts herself!
All rooms, except one, are named for and inspired by literary couples.
Here's a quick sampling:
|The Titania and Oberon room|
(A Midsummer Night's Dream)
Each room has it's own unique feel, and even has its own scent! Bath amenities are made specially for the Inn Boonsboro at Cedar Ridge Soaps.
While you're a guest at the Inn, you even have access to the kitchen. There you will find complimentary coffee and soft drinks, in addition the the meals and snacks the innkeeper prepares.
