Description

A view of the resort and leisure architecture of one of the most popular and prolific firms of the Gilded Age.

From the Breakers in Newport to the Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs, the architectural partnership of Peabody & Stearns produced a vast and vibrant repertoire of country houses and cottages across the United States. Here, an illustrated exploration of more than seventy of the firm's designs for vacation homes reveals the social and architectural vitality of a fascinating era.
