Douglas and Rosamund recently settled in this beautiful area of the Pacific Northwest to open Abbotswood House Bed and Breakfast. Rosamund is authentically English having been born in Cornwall and raised there and in Sussex before traveling to the United States on the Queen Mary. Douglas says that she came looking for him and they have now been married over 40 years.
Rosamund’s father was a successful author who wrote the book Marnie, from which Alfred Hitchcock made the film starring Tippie Hedren and Sean Connery. Also, of subsequent fame was the making of his Poldark novels into a series for Masterpiece Theatre. These were so well received that many Sunday evening Church services were rescheduled so that people could watch each episode!
In honor of her parents, Douglas and Rosamund have named their bed and breakfast after the family home in England and each bedroom acknowledges a main character in the Poldark novels – The Poldark Suite, Ross, and Demelza,.
