I bought this book when I was first decorating Old Story Farm. I loved that it was about creating a place for people to stay that was a more about celebrating the history of the place than catering to current trends. I loved that the place and the people who bought it valued old things, and that those very old things became the centerpieces of the decor and atmosphere of the resort. And, I loved that the people who created the place and who stayed embraced the idea of experiencing the camp and lake as it was in the 1930's.
Many of the 1930's details in the book are just like the architecture and items found at Old Story Farm in the 1930's wing of the house. Their process of discovering, uncovering, and revering the old, odd, and precious parts of their camp reminds me of the process that we went through.
The place is called Camp Wandawega Resort. And you can really stay there! Below is just one of their many adorable cabins.
