Greetings from London!
If you’re planning a trip to London in 2016, we’ve got a tip for you. If you don’t, the Beaumont Hotel is good enough of a reason to make you rethink your travel plans.
As estate managers, we get to travel to some of the most exciting properties around the world on behalf of our principals. But rarely do we find ourselves completely blown away.
Beaumont Hotel in London is one such instance. It’s truly one of the most tasteful hotels in the world with outstanding service (Conde Nast Gold List 2016).
The concierge, Michael, can make ANYTHING happen, even the smallest requests. In the dining room also ask for Michael (one of the servers).

It’s never good to hose limestone down with water? Why? Its porous and the stone will absorb the water only to later return as white calcium deposits making the stone look weird and like something is wrong with it? Solution? ONLY SWEEP it….. Should it start showing calcium deposits take a fiber cloth preferably white. Run under water. Wring out and wipe clean with damp cloth. You may have to wipe it several times and have to repeat many procedures but eventually the stone will release all of the water. File under “thought you might like I know” Will post pic of limestone w water on it and a pic of what it looks like with calcium deposits
Today kicks off the fall planting in the organic garden at the main residence. Once again an unparalleled service provided by the experts at Green Tree Landscaping. Today we will be planting snap peas, shell peas, fennel, chard, mustard greens, lettuces and cabbage. Also we will be planting marigolds in between the lettuces to deter root knot nematodes, which can wreak havoc on a garden!! Great way to start the day!!
