New Year 2010

As I had the pleasure of spending New Year’s Eve at our fabulous hotel, a new thought emerged that I thought I would share with all fellow dog lovers… East Hampton is not only a Mecca for sun worshippers in the summer time, but also a haven for noise averse canines that want to take Mom and Dad to a quiet place during this people oriented holiday that insists on shooting extremely loud fire crackers and horn blowing… The noise can be especially jarring to city pups–like my two darling dogs–speaking from a dog’s point of view of course.  In 2008 I tore up my hand by rescuing Lexington (the wilder of my two Goldens) from being hit by a driver. He ran like mad through Central Park towards the street after the Philharmonic’s grande soiree culminated with amazing (though loud for dog’s ears) fireworks. The event scarred us both, as I love having him run without the leash in the park after 9 pm, but with those fire crackers out there, it’s a slippery slope… Not so if you choose to take your dogs and your loved ones to c/o The Maidstone over New Year’s! No fire crackers in sight; as the village has asked its inhabitants to refrain from such dog repellant things out of respect for the peaceful tranquility that reigns out here. So, if you’re looking for a swell alternative for you and your pet for New Year’s Eve, then come to us next time… We have a scrumptious dog menu to order from, for vegetarian and meat loving canines alike. And the cutie dog that I hung with at New Year’s had a swell time. His mom and dad drove out from Manhattan to give the whole Z-Clan a divine start of 2010. Wish you could have been there. 🙂

Take care,

Cocktail Launch Party

c/o The Maidstone is now open and it’s immensely exciting… We just pulled off a super successful and fun opening weekend and if you happened to be one of the lucky ones to come play I want to thank you as you made me so happy. Each and every one of you. From our fabulous 95 year old neighbor who’s seen the inn change various times over her 65 years here in the Hamptons, to the previous owner who came to have a look at what had happened behind the closed doors over the past months, to the young hipsters who came from the city to see what all the buzz was about and of course, the spiritual healers, acupuncturists, yogis or influx of Swedes that naturally came to toast a fellow Swede making a mark in the East End. Somebody asked me if the design was typically Scandinavian and as you can see from the pictures, the design is a bit bolder than your average Scandinavian household but all the details stem from different parts of Sweden, Denmark and Norway, and if you like them, we’ll be able to tell you where to get them. That’s part of the brand as we want to spread the word of what we’ve found over the years. Have a peak at the pictures. We wanted to create something that would stand out in a crowd. Let me know what you think, if we succeeded, if you want to have your wedding here, do yoga by the big Buddah in the garden or just sip some champagne in the garden. Chances are you’ll see me there which I’m already looking forward to. Being a part of the Hamptons is a blessing. Thank you for being a part of this exciting journey for my hotels, my dogs and myself.
