Lisa G. found us through a Living Social coupon a couple of years ago. Since then, she has been back twice with her husband and twice with her mother. Proof enough that she likes it here.
But last week, Lisa resigned from a high profile and high stress job in Connecticut, and she called over this past weekend to see if she could stay at Hampton Terrace for three nights this week. With her husband's blessing, she is enjoying some quiet time before tackling life's next challenge.
This morning at breakfast, Lisa was explaining to me why she considers Hampton Terrace such a respite. Firstly, she likes how she can park her car in our front driveway and leave it. A good thing, since last night it was buried under a foot of snow.... She walked a block to Nudel and had dinner at the kitchen counter, talking with Bjorn, the chef. Today, she said he plans to walk around town, maybe hike a little in Kennedy Park, and grab some lunch at Haven. Tonight, she says she will try Nudel again, since the menu will be different.
Secondly, she volunteered how comfortable she always feels here. She has been reading a book in front of the fireplace in the living room. She said she appreciated how much she feels at home, as opposed to how she would feel reading a book in a hotel lobby.
Finally, she remarked how good our housekeeping is. Convenient. Comfortable. Clean.
I should pay her for creating a new slogan for us.
