If you already own a Stave, you know this better than anyone. Every handcrafted puzzle is transformed into a unique and graceful work of art, packed with clever silhouettes and designed to delightfully confound and confuse you. How can this possibly get any better? Imagine immersing yourself in an intimate setting while indulging in a Stave puzzle.
We have been very fortunate to win the affections of many luxurious resorts, inns, and Relais & Chateaux properties. Relaxed guests are often elated at how much fun they have together over the puzzle table. When you travel with Stave, you travel with the best!

Chosen as a "Romantic Hideaway" by "Discerning Traveler" and often featured as a chosen New England destination by the "Boston Globe", Rabbit Hill Inn sits in the charming little town of Lower Waterford, VT.

Perched high on the bluffs of Watch Hill, Rhode Island, the Ocean House is an iconic New England seaside resort. Famously known for its warm yellow façade and stunning views of the Atlantic, the Ocean House opened in 1868 just after the Civil War. The hotel gained prominence among the historic New England hotels built during this era. For those who could afford the luxury of travel, the Ocean House in the early 1900s became the quintessential summer home attracting many distinguished guests. The grand Victorian hotel was a genteel beach resort where generations of families and guests from across America came “to summer.” The Ocean House welcomed guests for 135 years or more until it closed in the early 2000's.
In 2004 a new structure replicating the original exterior design was conceived. Today, this much-loved beach hotel has been recreated to convey the romance of its storied past and the rich character of Watch Hill, Rhode Island.
The new resort features 49 rooms and 13 Signature Suites, providing more spacious accommodations than the original structure. More than 5,000 salvageable artifacts and furnishing elements were lovingly harvested from the original structure’s historic interiors.
The stunning hotel grounds capture the charm of coastal Rhode Island with a private white-sand beach with views of Montauk, Block Island, the Atlantic Ocean plus the luxury of cabana beach service. Outdoor venues for private events, dining, and cocktails, a beachfront fire pit for enchanting evenings, putting green and tournament-level croquet lawn are all part of the charm.
