After many exciting and crazy years in the advertising business in Canada. Richard and Cornelia bought, renovated and sucessfully ran a four room Bed and Breakfast on 11 acres on Salt Spring Island, Canada. For ten years they lived the rural life, looking after guests, creating lavish sit down breakfasts and growing over 20 varieties of lavender. But it wasn't enough! They started looking south, after a two year search for the perfect property they moved to Palm Springs.
Richard and Cornelia opened La Maison Hotel on February 1, 2012. Because they love to renovate, they spent several months redecorating each of the thirteen guest rooms. They enjoy meeting each and every guest. Many are becoming wonderful repeat guests and friends!
