Fodor's Review

The life of this American adventurer, WWI hero, and novelist is displayed at the beautifully restored house where he lived with his wife and children for almost 30 years until his death in 1951. Hall and writer-friend Charles Nordhoff co-wrote the famous Mutiny on the Bounty (published in 1932) and The Hurricane, among other works. Set in a beautiful garden high on a hill, the house overlooks the bay and beaches. Lunch is available in the tearoom; however, one day's notice is required.
