Through the large wrought iron gates marked “Rock” and “Hall” we follow the winding driveway, past the grass tennis court, well-established trees (all marked with which special species they are) and finally to a circular gravel driveway complete with statue and small garden in the center. We park in front of the manor house (which was designed by renowned architect Addison Minzer in 1912) and head on in to meet the owner and innkeeper of the Rock Hall Luxe Inn, Michael Somers. If we were to compare this “getaway” to a movie, as we frequently like to do, this one would be The Great Gatsby.

You know we like to try to match our wardrobes to our surroundings and adventures when at all possible. Not sure why; we can’t seem to help it. Knowing that Rock Hall Luxe Inn (where we were going for our next Getaway feature and featured on the blog tomorrow) was a beautiful mansion on a 23-acre estate in Colebrook, we decided that R. Derwin ladies store would be the perfect collection to wear there. With its enchanting gardens, gravel driveways, fountains, grass tennis courts, and majestic stairways, we felt the inn required classic clothing, luxurious fabrics, and maybe just a hint of a bygone Hollywood era.
