A converted old Masonic lodge oozing sentimental charm, Hemingway House has won media acclaim and a loyal following of satisfied guests.  During the renovations, Josephine “undressed [the lodge]…to expose its soul” [House & Leisure, June 2001] - to great effect.  A mostly neutral canvas is complemented by shades of duck-egg blue and anchored with antique pieces collected during Josie’s travels.  Squashy linen slipcovered sofas abound, lending a sense of romance and homely comfort.  Interchangeable indoor living spaces open onto an outdoor living area complete with sunken pool, ottomans, sofas, and a fireplace.  A state of the art, open plan farm-style kitchen allows guests to socialize with the hosts.
