The Grey Finn Lodge is named for our two boys, greyson and finn, who were only 4 and 7 at the time we moved here from Los Angeles. After many renovations and careful removal of the years of neglect, the hand hewn logs and old Florida charm of the cabins were ready to share with others. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.
We relocated to this special place after trading in our previous, much busier life in the big city, where I earned a living as an actor for 17 years. I appeared in films, popular shows, tv commercials and maybe most notably, on the runway for Tommy Hilfiger, where I met my wife Jennifer. We’ve been married for almost 20 years (no small feat compared to the average Hollywood nuptial).
You’re staying on 21 acres of very special native land, which we believe was chosen because of it’s converging creeks and what that meant to the people of that time. Besides the opportunity to fish and hunt and trap blue crabs downstream, this confluence of water represents to us the idea that different people, practices and principles, can come together as one. The new body of water, a stronger, more determined effort. It seemed the perfect place for us to raise our own family, hoping to take a step back in time, when simple chores taught enough of a lesson for the day. We take pride in being able to responsibly host you, your friends and your family. Please be mindful of your impact on it, and the consequence to the other inhabitants who still call this place home: the bobcat, coyote, fox, red tailed hawk, gopher tortoise, alligator, river otter, and too many other little critters to mention.
As you leave this property, back into the busy life you undoubtedly needed escape from, we hope you’ll remember that you, too, brought something special to our property. And that the seed you planted here, will grow into a precious row of memories, to be harvested when you need it most, somewhere along your own adventure in life. We hope you’ll share that treasure with others so that none of us forget how connected we all are, even when distance and language and physical appearance could so easily separate us.
