The Spa at MacArthur, the Pool, and the Fitness Center are currently undergoing a rejuvenation and the Pool and Fitness Center will remain closed until July 18th. The Spa will continue to provide an array of facial and massage treatments. All three of our culinary experiences, Layla, a Mediterranean-meets-Sonoma inspired restaurant — the cocktail-forward Bar at MacArthur and The Porch coffee shop will continue to provide seasonal dining with farm-fresh ingredients.

Pettit

Bev Pettit grew up in a small farming community of SE Minnesota. Her love of expansive rural spaces and horses followed her from childhood into her adult life. Even as a publisher and designer working in the corporate investment banking world, she found every opportunity during global travel to seek out backroads of small villages and large cities to capture unexpected travel scenes with her Minolta film camera.

Pettit eventually returned to the Western US where she has spent the past decade doing what she loves: photographing horses and the great wide open plains of the West. Her travels have also taken her to other remote areas with wild horses, such as Sable Island off the coast of Nova Scotia. Her striking portraits, often black and white, showcase these beautiful creatures in all of their freedom and glory. Pettit says she “knows” every horse she has ever photographed, as if they were her own. She reflects their personality and captures their essence in each horse through her photographs. ”Oh, the stories. He, in all his glory, is what represents freedom in America. May he go on forever. His legacy sure will.”
