Resort Hotels of the Adirondacks: The Architecture of a Summer Paradise, 1850-1950 by Bryant F. Tolles J.

Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). As an architect who grew up in a small coastal New England town that had a grand wooden hotel from the late 19th century, I appreciate Tolles' survey of what were once some very special places. Many of these buildings were significant as works of architecture, and were done by some of the best architects practicing at the time. Many were spectacular renditions of the Shingle Style, and others were done in earlier styles.

As an architect who grew up in a small coastal New England town that had a grand wooden hotel from the late 19th century, I appreciate Tolles' survey of what were once some very special places. Many of these buildings were significant as works of architecture, and were done by some of the best architects practicing at the time. Many were spectacular renditions of the Shingle Style, and others were done in earlier styles. They created the atmosphere of the seashore resort, and brought people to appreciate the natural beauty of the areas where they were built. It is unfortunate that so many succumbed to fire, but balloon framing (with its open vertical chases between studs) and the lack of sprinkler systems increased the risk of fire tremendously. This book, like Tolles' other books, is well-presented, with good period photographs and drawings.

We have a 1835 home that was used as an annex to one of these huge old inns so I of course loved the read about the inn era long past. I also loved the illustrations.
  • Umrdana
If you have any interest in the look and style of the Grand Hotel that once dotted the New England coastline, this is your best resource and guide. The written history of these areas is an added surprise.
  • Gardall
This book describes how the famous hotels built during the great victorian era were
built along the New England Coast and the cliental who stayed there. Great reading
for students of both archetecture and lifestyle.

  • Frdi
This is an excellent book for anyone to read that is interested the the resort hotels of New England of Bygone Era. Bryant Tolles Jr. has done some phenomenal research and there is a vast collection of fabulous illustrations, photographs, floor plans, postcards and detailed descriptions of various New England Resorts.
This is not a glossy coffe table book to be picked up and and crooned over but rather it is a highly readable, informative book that you will leave you wanting to read more of the author's work. I highly recommend ' Summer by the Seaside' by Bryant F. Tolles Jr
I spent my summers visiting various coastal resorts in New England, so I enjoyed leafing through the pages of this book and revisiting some of my favorite haunts. While I can't appreciate the subtle architectural detail discussed in this volume, I did appreciate the historical background that was presented as a context at many points in the book. And, of course, the pictures are wonderful, from the coffee-table appropriate cover shot to the many black and white period photos that support the narrative.
