The garden outside Eric and Elisa Callow?s Lloyd Wright home is awash in colors befitting the beginning brush strokes of a Monet landscape. Bright orange, green, red and purple dapple the back yard of the 2/3 acre lot along La Cañada?s Journey?s End Drive, which the couple has turned into a beautiful yet quiet haven of peace and solitude.

The Claremont Hotel, Club & Spa in Berkeley is one of those places. The Claremont has held its commanding view of the San Francisco Bay since 1915 and in fact caught the attention of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who referred to it as “ one of the few hotels in the world with warmth, character and charm.
