There’s something about room 12 at the Grafton Inn. Jon and I have stayed in a few different rooms, but the first time we stayed in room 12 I could feel the difference as we read in the sitting room. It felt full, as if the space was alive. It had presence.
Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Kipling and lots of other writers have stayed at the Inn, so I would guess that it has always attracted creative people. We were told by the Inn keeper that room 12 was Paul Newman’s favorite. I guess I’ll never know what went on in room 12, but what ever it was, it still feels good.
